I saw the preview on this Fox show several months ago on I thought it looked interesting for a Sci-Fi thriller. Unfortunately, I forgot about it and didn't think about it again. Tonight, Tina was flipping through the channels and came across a show on Fox that really caught got our attention. The scene was a young woman in a restaurant, and she didn't look well. The next thing you know, everyone in the restaurant began bleeding from their eyes and all died. After about ten minutes, I found out the name of the show is Fringe. I have to say, I was really impressed with the show. It was interesting and I felt like the show takes chances in their story line. It is science fiction, but like most really good Sci-Fi TV shows it pushes the limits of our imagination. I guess it is safe to say that I will be watching it more often. The only "known" star to me is Joshua Jackson who was on Dawson's Creek and most recently the movie Shutter. His father on the show is best explained as a mad scientist. The main lead is an actress named Anna Trov. Trov and Jackson are FBI agents who work for a fringe group of the Homeland Security Dept. After only watching one show, I can see that this is a show that will be a very innovative, interesting show. Much like The X-Files, but not a rip off of that show. The original trailer for the show is below. Check it out and then look for it on Tuesdays on Fox.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Fringe is a science fiction television series co-created by J. J. Abrams, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci. The series premiered in the United States on September 9, 2008, on the Fox network. The show is also set in Boston, Massachusetts. Along with Joss Whedon's Dollhouse, Fringe is part of a new Fox initiative known as "Remote-Free TV". Episodes of Fringe will be longer than standard dramas on current network television. It will air with half the commercials and promo spots, adding about 6 minutes to the shows' run time.[3]

The series deals with a research scientist named Walter Bishop (described as "Frankenstein mixed with Albert Einstein" and portrayed by John Noble), his son Peter Bishop (Joshua Jackson), and an FBI agent, Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv) who brings them back together. The show is described as a cross between The X-Files, Altered States, The Twilight Zone and Dark Angel.[4][5]
