It’ll be interesting to see how Fringe holds up a decade from now
I believe "Fringe" will stand the test of time like the other sci-fi series have.

As those technologies have advanced, having things like old IBM dual-disk computers and flip phones scattered throughout the episodes tends to make people think the show is funny. Fringe has tech, too, but it's not as pervasive. Mulder had his old-fashioned cell phone practically glued to his ear.
If the writing is good, viewers will overlook the outdated electronics.

"The Twilight Zone" and "Dark Shadows" are prime examples of this.

However unfortunately, I do think future viewers of "The X-Files" will find those old IBM dual-disk computers and flip phones scattered throughout the episodes to be funny.

However, I believe they will also take into consideration that this was a state-of-the-art series for the era in which it aired.

Classic Fringe #1: A Historical Perspective

From August 29, 2019: 'Angel Has Fallen' Star Lance Reddick on 'John Wick,' 'Lost' Disappointment and Nearly Losing 'The Wire'

When the actor took a role on 'Fringe,' he did not realize it'd result in him being killed off in 'Lost': "If I think about it too much, I’ll get pissed off."

People who truly appreciate the art of film and television can see past any archaic-seeming techniques or settings and admire great works based on the time they were made. Fringe will stand up for it's excellence to those people. Folks who are only impressed by the latest special effects or most current settings miss out on some amazing work.
