We love fall. The air is crisp, we feel more alive, school starts, and the new fall programing is on! We were excited to hear about the newest J.J. Abrams (Alias, Lost) science-fiction program running on Fox, Fringe. We're big fans of the sci-fi genre, so we tuned in for the first few episodes of what was reported as 'a cross between the X-Files and House.'
Fringe is about the FBI agent, Olivia Dunham who works in conjunction with mad scientist (Literally, he's straight from a mental institution.) Walter Bishop and his son Peter, to solve bizarre and ridiculous cases. Mostly they have to do with 'Fringe Science,' such as telepathy, levitation, invisibility, reanimation, and synthetic goop that melts people's skin off, such as appears in episode 1. Additionally, this show is part of Fox's new initiative known as "Remote-Free TV," meaning that episodes will air with half as many commercials, lengthening the show by approximately six minutes.
Quick vote: Though the acting is less than exceptional, the science fiction aspect is pretty awesome, so we're going to keep watching, and we recommend that you do too!
