Advertisements Anyone still watching these show? They were both heavily hyped by the networks at the beginning of the season, but neither really took off. I think they both have the same problem. The lead characters are played by foreigners whose fake American accents are really flat and unemotional and unexpressive. Also, both Fringe and Eleventh Hour are trying to appeal to fans of the X Files and Lost, but those shows had great character chemistry as well as a strongly developed story mythology. Fringe and Eleventh Hour fail in both departments. Has either show been renewed for next season?
