A final farewell to Fringe, some sobering thoughts on the end of Alphas and much, much more in the latest Tweets Of The Week
Anyone who reads SFX , online or in print, will know how much we love Fringe . The show came to an end last Friday night, and was broadcast simultaneously in the UK and the US; little surprise then that #Fringe, #KeepLookingUp and #WeCrossedTheLine (each episode’s dedicated hashtag) were trending for most of the evening (take that Bieber!)
It was a show that found its weird, mutated feet late in its first year on the air, and rarely dipped in quality for its remaining four. A significant part of its continued survival in the cut-throat world of US network TV was the outpouring of support it received online over that half decade, much of which was organised via Twitter. It seems only fitting then that for Fringe ’s final bow we highlight the thoughts and thanks of those involved expressed via Twitter.
@JWFRINGE GO FRINGE! THANK YOU SO MUCH. It cannot be overstated how much I appreciate your love for Fringe. From ALL of US to ALL of YOU. Enjoy XO.

@MuseZack TV networks really should consider the long-term damage they do to viewing by canceling fan favorite shows without any kind of closure.
Canceling shows is sometimes a prudent business decision. But not doing a few episodes or a TV movie to wrap up teaches fans not to invest.
@edgarwright Movie Pitch: In the year 2033, a legion of arched eyebrow assassins emerge, who have grown up consisting only on Sky's 24 hour 007 channel.

@DamonLindelof Just to be absolutely clear. 1952, directed by Brad Bird, will NOT be in 3D. We are, however, considering Smell-O-Vision.
