Lost was a popular enough program that I don’t need a write-up for it via Wikipedia, although I’ve only ever seen 1 and ¼ seasons. Its fans will defend it and its detractors will detract…it? So go, argue amongst yourselves, but remember that it was not Penny’s boat. Donkey wheel. Island. Polar bear. Smoke monster. Uncork the bottle. Dharma. HOF Ben Linus. HOF John Locke.

Fringe is an American science fiction television series created by J. J. Abrams. The series follows Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv), Peter Bishop (Joshua Jackson), and Walter Bishop (John Noble), members of a Federal Bureau of Investigation "Fringe Division" team based in Boston, Massachusetts under the supervision of Homeland Security. The team uses "fringe" science and FBI investigative techniques to investigate a series of unexplained, often ghastly occurrences, which are related to mysteries surrounding a parallel universe. The series has been described as a hybrid of The X-Files, Altered States, and The Twilight Zone.
The series format combines elements from procedural dramas as well as those found in serials. The series began as a more traditional "mystery of the week" series, and became more serialized in later seasons. A majority of episodes contain a standalone plot, with several episodes also exploring the series' overarching mythology.
Early critical reception of the first season was lukewarm but became more favorable in subsequent seasons, when the series began to explore its mythology, including parallel universes and alternate timelines. The show, as well as the cast and crew, has been nominated for many major awards. Despite its move to the "Friday night death slot" and low ratings, the series has received a cult following.

I more or less hate LOST now.
But no matter how hard they tried, they couldn't erase some of the great things that happened during the first 5 years.
Lost fanboy even still.

Fringe because of that kid from the Mighty Ducks and Lt. Daniels.
What the fuck is fringe and how did it make it in this tournament?
Fun Fact: Terry O'Quinn (John Locke) lives in Timonium.
I really liked Fringe and at times I probably liked it better than Lost, but overall Lost was a much, much stronger show-- and even if you want to criticize Lost for the ending... the final season of Fringe was mostly pretty bad.
The last few episodes of season 3 through season 4 rivals almost anything on TV. Shame it came off the rails towards the end.
exactly....i dont even know what **fringe** is....but i will vote for it since i couldnt get thru more than four or five episodes of lost
Parlay's votes should not count.
*LOST* was so great in it's prime
I still get angry thinking about what happened to Lost…***Fringe***
Lt. Daniels and Pacey in the same show makes for great TV. Even Bubbles makes a cameo. Very underrated show that never got its due because it ran on Friday nights.
***LOST*** Underseeded as a four. I've never seen Buffy but have a tough time believing it's better than this. I acquiesce to the committee's TV knowledge though.
I got the shotgun. You got the briefcase. It's all in the game though, right?
Ditto, but I too am not well-versed. Seasons 1 and 2 were amazing enough for me to carry it through some of its deficiencies. It's an all time great for me and was tailormade for the internet age. I will always remember it w/ the happy coincidence of coming into work and losing myself in hours of internet speculation. On this board and elsewhere.
Lol at the selection committee

Even though I hated the last season and didn't like the one before that very much.
Shouldn't even need to burn through any arguments in favor of it this round either.
Is he actually voting for anything? or just whining about the lack of 1960s dramas?
season one was as good as it gets. ben linus is a goat villain as well.
Did I vote in this one?
While I enjoyed Fringe, Lost was HOF-worthy in its prime. Like others have said, the end doesn't detract from how great it was as a whole.
