NEW YORK—The website TVFighter announced Friday that its weekly recap of the show Fringe had received a record-high 25,000 hits from readers who might as well be dead. "After each episode, I like to check the recap just to stay on top of everything, plus the message board is a great way to touch base with other fans," said 32-year old Mike Puleo, who, given his decision to read about a TV program immediately after watching it, has clearly lost his will to live. "I've made some pretty good friends that way. Sometimes me and another guy or two will be on there for hours, commenting back and forth about what's happening with the show. It's one of my favorite things on the Internet." While acknowledging the recaps occasionally contain "serious mistakes" and are not terribly well written, the man whose existence is devoid of any meaning or value of any kind said reading them was "still better than nothing."
