It looks as though the folks over at Fringe are preparing to deal with their Jan. 21 move to Fridays with anything but denial, anger, bargaining, depression, or acceptance. Well, maybe acceptance, but it’s of a uniquely aggressive sort:

The wit laced with just a pinch of bitterness; the reveling in a challenge that only seems hopeless… why, it’s like hoping John Noble would get a Golden Globe nomination!

Contrasting clips of Fringe‘s boundless invention with quotes from mostly fan sites bemoaning the Friday move underscores what is at stake: nothing less than two warring philosophies. Energetic attack versus resigned whining. These two worlds must collide, and the energetic attack — that is, Fringe survival — must prevail! I call upon you to throw off your chains of pessimism and prepare for the coming war!
