Fringe: The Real Conspiracy Revealed

Consider: For the past two weeks, American Idol’s Tuesday night shows have run long, and not just by a couple breaths: We’re talking a full two-minute overrun this week and a ridiculous eight-minute extension the week before. Honestly, even on live TV, how does this stuff happen? I blame a lack of stones and sloppy editing on someone’s part.

So why do I care? Because my daughter and I are big fans of “Fringe,” and we can’t watch it live since a) it’s on past her bedtime and b) while she embraces the creepiness of the show, she doesn’t want to watch it right before trying to go to sleep.

Our time-shifted viewing of the past two episodes, then, has included two DVR stoppages in the show’s final moments, meaning we had to go get on the computer and watch the endings online.

I can only conclude that Massive Dynamic is a secret partner in Hulu.

  1. I’ve permanently added a fifteen-minute overrun to my DVR setting for Fringe.

  2. We’ve done the same thing. One week was a fluke. Two? That’s just dumb. Or, again, the work of a sinister corporate overlord.
