Reader Forum: The Fringe Premiere

So after much ballyhoo, J.J. Abrams's Fringe premiered last night on Fox. I'm curious to know how you guys felt about the pilot episode, and if this is a show you'd like to see covered on Slashfilm in the future. The ratings are in—roughly 9 million viewers—and while it's not necessarily a homerun off the bat, word of mouth will play a large factor in the proceeding weeks. Do you expect the show to reach the heights of The X-Files in its prime? Did the 90-minute $10 million premiere grab you?
