On Eerie Similarities

So, back in October, while still in the delightful EW cocoon, I had an idea for a sort of JJ Abrams checklist. I noticed how ridiculously similar Fringe was to the rest of the Jaybrams oeuvre, pitched it, and got it. The list of similarities I came up with was pretty extensive, but of course, what with the limitations of print space, only a few categories saw the light of day. That box was my first byline in EW, so I remember it well. It looks stupid in its online form, but whatever.

Two minutes ago, I go to check out Television Without Pity (as you do). And I see…this.

I know, I know. It’s not the exact same thing. TWoP’s is focused on characters (and has more errors–Peter Bishop isn’t actually an MIT grad, guys; his degree is fake), but…I still feel a little ripped off. It’s almost like TWoP’s slideshow is…Fringe…and my box is…Alias ZOMG SO META.

Anyway, I just thought I’d point that out.
