Fringe ends soon  

Fringe ends this week. I've heard it said that it was never really about sci-fi, or the monsters or even the universes and timelines -- that it was eventually about finding family where one can find it. And for five seasons, while the show faltered and seemed to have lost its footing (and its logic, even) many many times, it was this belief, it was this sense of family that kept it moving from one episode to another, that kept it whole. In a way it was just a show of deeply flawed people -- the mad scientist who broke the world, the angry son, the woman with the horrible childhood... and it could have gone wrong in so many ways -- been just another cheesefest. But somehow it went on, redeemed itself, character by character. So to all those behind the show, a huge thanks. Thank you for showing us there are always versions of us somewhere (better or worse), in parallel universes that maybe exist only in our heads, that we can always do better, for showing us that what matters is never how smart and awesome we can be or how many monsters we slay, but that in the moment of absolute pain, that we stick to being human -- especially when that is the most difficult thing. Thank you, and we shall always be looking for our white tulips.
