This may not be good news....

Fox announced today that Monica Breen and Alison Schapker have joined the crew of "Fringe" as executive producers. Astute fans will remember this duo as the ones who ruined Alias. OK, maybe that isn't fair, but they did join the show as executive story editors and writers during the disastrous third season. They were executive producers during the final two seasons, and wrote some of the worst episodes during that time. "Prophet 5," the episode that killed Vaughn, can be laid at their feet as writers. Maybe I'm being harsh, because a lot of folks failed the show later on, but I just don't like their track record. Not on Alias, Lost, or the other shows they were on. I love Fringe, and I'd hate to see the "tone" change.
