image for CSI, Stargate & Fringe Viewers Plea: Give Our Heads A Break!
Tried to cope with Tuesday crime and sci-fi!

Viewers of Tuesday evening TV crime and sci-fi series are pleading for clearer plotting to end their TV confusion.

Fringe's third season's third episode airs tonight with FBI agent Olivia still marooned in the alternative universe while her opposite number learns more about FBI Fringe Division operations in this world.

And it's all getting too much, say viewers groups.

"There's some complicated stuff going down on telly on Tuesday nights," says critic Mick Pillock, "And the fans are getting confused.

"First off, there's the complex forensics in CSI:Miami and CSI:New York.

"Then in Stargate:Universe you've got all the weird stuff about who's plotting against who and who's using the communications stones, or whatever they're called, to change places with someone on earth (that bit really does my head in).

"After that, along comes Fringe, which is weird enough without the two Olivias changing places.

"The channels really need to get together and spread all this complexity through the week.

"Look - we viewers and fans don't have a massive amount of RAM to play with. There could be exploding heads soon."

Make Ellis Ian Fields's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
