    ie: Fringe, Alcatraz etc. I generally love sci-fi and Twilight Zone kind of stuff but sometimes it feels like there's too much time and place hopping unless you're following the stories very closely.

    Only for people from the future. If you're from now, then you've still got more to watch.

    I probably don't need to remind time travelers about this, but be careful about spoilers. The temporal police are quite anal about those. In some cases, they have banned people from existence.

    And "I'm from an alternate timeline so the story could be different" is not a good excuse. Wait until the episode airs, then discuss the differences.

    I don't watch Fringe and I miss Lost and Alias. I'm excited to watch Alcatraz. I haven't got around to it yet but I will this week.

    ...am a diehard Lost fan (yes, even after the ending), didn't like Fringe at first but now I love it, am currently rewatching Alias, can't wait for the next Star Trek and Alcatraz is the only new network show this season that sparked my interest from the start. Wherever J.J. goes, I will follow (except for Undercovers).

    Not tired of it. I like stories that need to be followed closely.

    Wish I had the time to go back and rewatch Alias.

    I am not tired of his TV shows or movies. My "Fringe" season pass was history after 2 seasons but "Person of Interest" is holding my interest so far. I have "Alcatraz" set with a Season Pass but haven't watched it yet. I am watching Alias for the first time, about half way through the first season and I am in season 3 of "Lost" on Blu-ray. The shows are consistently stupid and far fetched, no sense of anything really possible and Fringe got so stupid I couldn't watch it but apparently in general, I can watch stupid crap. I don't like the annoying lens flare with Star Trek and Super 8 and I have no idea why he does that.

    It's never been my cup of tea, but since I don't watch any of it I'm hardly tired of it.

    Lost was in a class by itself. I doubt there will ever be another show I like as well. If you look for a second lost every time a new show comes out, it will be disappointing.

    I love Fringe--the others are ok, but not great. Not tired yet.

    I watched all of Alias, and felt unsatisfied at the end. I quit Lost after about 1.5 seasons out of frustration.

    I was actually okay with Mission Impossible 3.

    I like Person of Interest so far. In the beginning, I liked that they just kind of hand waved over how the machine works and got more into the episodes with a badass just helping the person of the week, kind of like an Equalizer. I'm worried though that they will get sucked into too much of the machine's history. Just hope it's not a Rambaldi device or something.

    I saw from Season 4 through to the end of Alias, when it aired. I recently went back to watch from the beginning, and am now half-way through season 3. I'm enjoying it. Funny how famous Bradley Cooper (Will Tippen, Sid's reporter friend) has become in the years since - I've been seeing him everywhere -- The Hangover, Limitless, even the cover of People Magazine (I think he was selected as "sexiest man alive," or something).

    He has a lot of ideas that apparently would make good miniseries, movies, or maybe even 13-episode shows. But it seems the overall framework he lays out for a series doesn't really work for the long term. Alias and Fringe were two that kept the magic going decently well for a while. (I put Fringe in the "were" category since this season I feel it's not the appointment viewing it once was.) Lost came off the rails fairly quickly. I still watched it, hoping it would get better, but like all other shows it never did. Person of Interest feels like a CBS procedural show above everything else, and I just couldn't get into it because of that. Alcatraz did not really capture my interest either, though I'm willing to give it a couple more hours.
