( -- What does "Fringe" executive producer J.J. Abrams think of the upcoming series finale?

Abrams was taking questions from reporters following a TV press tour panel in Pasadena on Sunday for NBC's "Revolution."

The writer-producer-director says he hasn't yet watched last "Fringe" episode (the cut just came in), but he had high praise based on the script for the Fox cult favorite. "It will be great," Abrams says of the Jan. 18 episode. "I mean, the script is unbelievable. I think it will be incredibly emotional."

He then added, a bit jokingly: "If it's not satisfying, I don't know what satisfying is."
