It's funny, I've never actually seen Joshua Jackson in anything, but seeing him in the commercials for Fringe I'm having a hard time taking him seriously. Maybe that'll work itself out once the show's actually on and I gotta say, I'm pretty curious to see it, but for the time being I'm kinda wishing they'd picked someone else for the lead. *shrug*

Still, JJ's usually pretty good with stuff (well, Cloverfield and the first few seasons of Alias, anyway) so I imagine that Fringe will be, if nothing else, interesting, and if the stories are good enough it doesn't really matter WHAT mobile props are running around saying the lines, right? ;)

Fringe Comic Book Prequel planned:

"The hip media empire of J.J. Abrams (Alias, Lost, Cloverfield, the next Star Trek film) expands into comic books this fall when DC Comics offers a prequel to his upcoming TV series on Fox, Fringe. Writers and artists are being decided, but DC says the comic version will hit the stands on Aug. 27, two weeks before the two-hour premiere airs on Sept. 9.

Speculation about the show is building at online fan sites amid word that the opener involves paranormal investigators looking into the mysterious landing of a jetliner with dead passengers. Sounds like a certain island, but the producers say the show will feature self-contained stories, ?* la Twilight Zone or X-Files, rather than one fantastic saga. Abrams is joined as executive producers on the project by Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, who also are working on the Star Trek reboot film expected in 2009."

Hmm. The potential is definitely there, but having now seen the pilot...

The lead female bugs the everlasting crap out of me. I HATE HATE HATE the whole "straightlaced professional willing to sacrifice everything for twue wuv" crap that seems to be getting more prevalent. Being in love is just dandy, but taking insane and potentially deadly risks is NOT. Particularly when it's OTHERS you're putting in danger.

Having not read any of the spoilers for this show I fully expected Dr. Dementdad to escape and join whatever sociopathic doomsday group arranged outlandishly unlikely events in order to spring him. I was looking forward to it so I could yell at the TV and mentally bash in her empty stupid head for being dumb, arrogant, and selfish enough to have followed the path to Doomsday so blindly and with so little rational thought.

The fact that Dr. Dementdad so far seems to be a good guy does not entirely assuage my feeling he's gonna turn tail at some point and call Sheepgirl to chat about gengineered fava beans and toxin-laced chianti.

I hates her, I hates her so much!

Her Twue Wuv being a bad guy probably shouldn't have come as a surprise, but it did. It isn't quite the karmic retribution for her stupidity that I was hoping for, but at least it's a start.

Josh Jackson was surprisingly good in this. True, his whole turn as DiCaprio in Catch Me If You Can didn't play well with me, but it was good (and a bit disturbing) to see him acting as the sole voice of reason during Sheepgirl's downward spiral of desperate dumbness. Have I mentioned that I hate her? Because I do. Josh may prove to be the salvation of the show... provided Abrams doesn't go overboard with the whole "daddy issues" thing. Why does it seem like everyone on TV suddenly has daddy issues? Or mommy issues? I know conflict is good, but FFS, doesn't anyone ever come from a GOOD family anymore? I didn't always see eye to eye with my dad and I've certainly had a few disagreements with my mom, but for the most part things were/are pretty peaceful. But between TV and talking to my friends I'm beginning to wonder if my family isn't the abnormal one, just by dint of us all getting along.

Anyway, that's more of a personal issue. Show-wise I don't have any problems with it- yet- and the level of distrust and aggravation are about what I'd expect under the circumstances. I do wonder if there's more to Josh than we (or even he) realizes. Dad checking on his eyes was just a little TOO weird, even for a crazy scientist. I kept expecting there to be a tiny tattoo under the eyelid or something, signifying whatever creepy experiments Dad performed on Baby Josh (or possibly In-utero Josh or even Conceived Genetic Experiment Josh).

I'll certainly give it a go once it hits the air. Hopefully I'll learn to hate Sheepgirl less as time goes on, and hopefully Abrams will give me reason to hate her less.

I never really **got** the JJ Abrams hype. Felicity was awful, Alias was awful, Armageddon was awful, I never liked Lost, Cloverfield was just another bad Godzilla movie, and now the man's in the process of molesting Star Trek's corpse. Why does this guy get the attention he does?

Lost and Cloverfield are brilliant. If you think Cloverfield is just another monster movie then you probably don't get it, the monster is just a tool, that's why it doesn't matter what it is or where it came from.

Hated Felicity. I liked the first few seasons of Alias and Lost, but then they felt like they were getting too full of themselves and getting more bizarre and ridiculous just for the sake of being bizarre and ridiculous. Loved Cloverfield. I won't score Fringe an automatic win just because Abrams is involved, but I also won't score it an automatic fail. There are things I hate about it (Sheepgirl), but the idea behind it is kinda interesting... provided JJ can pull it off. Either way I don't think the show rates high on the longevity scale and that may be a good thing, particularly if it means Fringe won't get a chance to get full of itself and blow the ridiculousness all out of proportion.

Yeah that's a pretty common fanboi kneejerk response when someone doesn't like their preferred artist/show/movie, "you just don't get it". Sorry, not much to "get".

I saw it and was entertained pretty much the entire time. I wonder what or who they will change (if anything) when it airs.

I like JJ Abrams. I haven't seen everything he has done, but I like Lost and I LOVED Cloverfield. If something sounds or looks interesting to me I will give it a try. The only times I will watch something because of a name is if it's Joss or sometimes one of my favorite actors.

Fringe spoilers! "Amid the red-and-blue flashing light of squad cars, FBI Special Agent Olivia Dunham strides purposefully through the Boston parking garage with companions Peter Bishop and his father, eccentric scientist Walter Bishop, toward the crime scene. Greeted by a building supervisor, she is told that the elevator simply dropped several floors, crashing violently into the garage. "That's impossible," Peter says as they examine the wreckage. Walter and Olivia draw closer, peering inside the wrecked elevator car, where several people died. Or so it seems.

Cut!

The scene is actually part of Fox's upcoming SF TV series Fringe. Dunham is actually Australian actress Anna Torv; Peter is Joshua Jackson, and Walter is fellow Aussie John Noble. The garage is real, but it's in New York City, where Fringe is filming on a breezy Aug. 26, which doubles for the show's Boston setting. And SCI FI Wire was able to get an exclusive glimpse behind the scenes of the much-anticipated show and talk with the principals. The garage has been transformed into a crime scene, complete with emergency vehicles (Massachusetts state trooper units, a coroner's van), emergency personnel (extras in FBI windbreakers and cop uniforms), lights, gurneys and yellow police tape.




The wrecked elevator is actually a facade built into the garage. The episode is titled "Power Hungry" and is the fifth of the first season. And all three stars are on set this day, joking easily among themselves between takes before blocking out their movements with episode director Chris Misiano. Ask them what Fringe is about, however, and you're more likely to get a look of amused exasperation. "I'm really excited for the show to premiere so then I stop getting asked the question, because ... I never know which way to go," Torv said with a smile. "It's kind of got a bit of everything, I don't think it's genre-specific. I think that it is very science fiction, but more emphasis on the science as opposed to the fiction. There's drama, because your characters are all real, but they're dealing with these ... horrific [scenarios]. So I think there's elements of horror; there's elements of action. There's investigative [stories], there's crime-solving. I mean, it's just all consuming and far-reaching."




From J.J. Abrams and his Star Trek writing team of Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, Fringe centers on FBI agent Olivia Dunham, who finds herself drawn into an investigation of a mysterious aircraft disaster in Boston. Olivia's desperate search for help to save her gravely injured partner leads to brilliant scientist Walter Bishop, who has been institutionalized for the last 17 years. And the only way to question him requires pulling his estranged son, Peter, in to help.

The investigation gets weirder and weirder as Olivia discovers that things--and science--are not what they seem. Torv agreed with Orci's description of the show's theme being "the family you choose." "I do, absolutely," she said. "And I think that as the show progresses, they will need each other more and more and more." But, she added, "The power of three's a fun little number, because ... the dynamic is always going to shift, and you're always going to need one person more than the other. ... I was brought up in a family of three, and there's always two people against one."

The show is currently filming the fifth of its initial 13 episodes. "Power Hungry" deals with the trio's investigation of an elevator crash that was caused by some kind of mysterious power surge. Their investigation leads to a young man, Joseph (guest star Ebon Moss-Bachrach), who appears to give off some kind of odd electrical charge. As is typical in Fringe, the pursuit uncovers a sinister plot involving "fringe science" and the nefarious motives of another scientist (guest star Max Baker). And the race is on to find Joseph and uncover the plot. In another shot, the camera dollies into the wrecked elevator, where Joseph is lying unconscious atop a pile of bodies, including the office girl on whom he has a crush. Joseph awakes, looks around in horror, then spies the girl lying beside him. She's clearly dead, and he's horrified.

"Oh, God ..." he utters before clambering out of the dusty death carriage. The episode promises Fringe's mix of humor, science, horror and mystery, as well as the interpersonal drama among the three principal characters. "There's some fairly gruesome things that have happened, to be honest with you, and some fairly bizarre things, and I'm not going to tell you any more, because that's to be revealed," Noble said, with a grin. "But I think everyone will find them interesting and just close enough to [reality to] possibly go, 'Oh, my goodness, that's weird.' And I don't want to tell you. I'm not going to tell you any more."

Fringe premieres Sept. 9 and will air Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT"

Spoiler interview:

Fringe's Jackson Spills All

When we last saw Joshua Jackson on regular series television, he was resigned to staying in Capeside forever, even though Joey decided to choose him over Dawson.

That was more than five years ago, in the finale to the sixth season of Jackson's breakthrough series, Dawson's Creek.

But hold on to your rowboat: Pacey's back.

"I think he's finally going to leave the Creek after this season," said J.J. Abrams. "Really, all I love to do is make Pacey jokes."

Jackson is a regular on Abrams' upcoming Fox SF series Fringe, and he tells SCI FI Wire that it took Abrams to lure him back to the grind of an hourlong drama.

"It was something I have been hesitant about for the last five years, since Dawson's Creek ended," Jackson said in an exclusive interview on the show's set in New York on Aug. 26. "And, you know, the time commitment and the being-in-one-place of it all is a massive life shift, and I had a really great five years of not being on TV. But I don't know, the stars sort of aligned for this, and J.J.'s a great guy."

Jackson added: "Beyond the lifestyle choices of working on a television show, the thing that had kept me from doing TV was knowing how hard it is to tell good shows, good stories, over a long period of time. And he ... and his group--he works with the same people over and over again--have a track record of being able to do that. And that was the thing that sort of tipped it to the other side for me."

Jackson spoke during a break in shooting on Fringe, in which he plays Peter Bishop, the smart but damaged son of brilliant but eccentric scientist Walter Bishop (John Noble). Peter finds himself reunited with his estranged father at the urging of FBI agent Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv) as they investigate strange cases on the "fringe of science": cases that hint at a nefarious conspiracy underlying strange phenomena across the globe.

Below is an excerpt of SCI FI Wire's interview in which he discusses his character--and why he made a trip to the emergency room.

Tell me about your character, Peter.

Jackson: Yeah, well, ... Peter is just sort of discovering he's part of this world right now. Because when he's initially brought in, in the pilot, it's completely against his will, and he's only brought in because Olivia needs him to serve a function and get access to my father. But then, like anybody who's got a bit of curiosity, he sees this wild world and the access that he has through being a part of this world, and it sort of draws him in.

The character sort of functions in a couple of different ways, in addition to the father-son dynamic. On the one hand, you're sort of the voice of skepticism, on the other hand you're sort of interpreting what Walter's saying. And then you're like the Greek chorus that gets to make jokes.

Jackson: A little bit, yeah. ... I think the Greek chorus, the peanut gallery and the skeptic part come together. Because the person who stands one step removed is usually the one who is most capable of pooh-poohing. But just as an archetype, every show like this--every show, period--needs to have somebody who sort of stands at a remove and says, "Doesn't anybody else think this is ridiculous?" And Olivia is a sort of very straight ahead, trying to fix things. She's just a very hard-nosed, go, go, go type of girl. So that's great. I get that character who gets to sort of release the tension every once in a while.

Co-creator Roberto Orci said that, for him, the show is about the family you choose.

Jackson: The family you choose, and then-- ... I don't believe in fate--but people whose paths you're fated to cross. ... There's obviously [a] broken dynamic between me and my father. But then you throw this Olivia character into the mix here, and we become this sort of dysfunctional family unit by necessity. But you throw people in high-pressure situations like this, and they just sort of naturally come together and bond. ... If you take it off the television and put it in real life, that's how you get to know people, seeing them in action.

Tell me about some of the crazier stuff you've had to do so far.

Jackson: This is the worst that I've been subjected to. [He points to his makeup, which simulates reddish bruises on his face and ligature marks at his wrists.] ... I guess I can tell you that I was tortured, but I can't tell you why or by who. But, yeah, being tortured is bad. This is a bad day. It's not good for anybody.

You have to be in the basement chained up with your shirt off?

Jackson: Pretty close. And then horrible things are done to me. Yeah, not pleasant, it wasn't pleasant. Actually, yeah, it was not pleasant.

How was it performing that?

Jackson: I actually, and I'm not kidding, and I can't tell you exactly why, but I ended up in the emergency room. Something went wrong with one of the props, and I ended up sort of bleeding quite a bit. So it was intense, it was very real.

Will they use that shot in the show?

Jackson: They better. If I bleed in a shot, they had better. I don't even care if it's a terrible take. I don't care if my performance is awful. if I'm bleeding I want it on screen [laughs].

Can you talk about working with Anna and John?

Jackson: Yeah, she is terrific. J.J. has this, I don't know, like, uncanny knack for casting women. It's crazy. And ... they're two Aussies, but they're both sort of dedicated, lovely people, which is why I say the drama all stays on camera. There is so far--and I don't see why it would change--this feeling of "Well, we're all here, and we're in it, and we're doing it together, and we take our jobs just seriously enough that everybody shows up ready to work, but not so seriously that it's, you know, the end of the world if something goes wrong."

Have you gotten to share a scene with the cow?

Jackson: Nobody shares a scene with the cow. Jean is the star of every scene that she is in. Yeah, the cow's name is Jean, yeah. That's my life, circa 2008.

John told me he actually gets to milk the cow.

Jackson: He did milk the cow. I enjoyed the fruits of his labors. I did not actually milk the cow myself.

Anything else about Fringe?

Jackson: Fringe, it's the hardest show on TV to talk about.

Fringe premieres Sept. 9 and will air Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

The first review. I'll give it a go, just for a planeful of melted people ;)

Variety
http://www.variety.com/review/VE1117938209.html?categoryid=32&cs=1

excerpt:

Being derivative isn't necessarily a condemnation in television, but given the auspices and hype, "Fringe" disappoints -- mixing a bit of "The X-Files" here and a dollop of "Alias" there, flecks of deeply embedded conspiracies and imperiled humanity. The 90-minute, limited-interruption premiere certainly has ample opportunity to set up the show's elaborate chessboard, but barring major improvements -- or the inevitable warming glow of an "American Idol" lead-in -- the title should do a reasonably good job of describing the show's audience.

Really enjoyed the premiere. I was expecting it to be a lot more X-Files like, but it really doesn't seem to have that much similarity at all. I liked how already from the get go we're seeing setup for the over all conspiracy arc.

The agent, I forget his name, who was/is somehow involved too me by surprise which was nice considering most TV twists these days can be seen from a mile away.

Only real problem I have so far is that nobody seems to bothered by the surreality of what is going on.

That Variety review is nonsense. There are very few similarities so far with X-Files, and I see absolutely none with Alias aside from the fact it's from JJ Abrams. To me Fringe seems very fresh and not really directly derivative.

The only similarity with the X-Files is the male/female team investigating strange events(I guess that's a big similarity, though;)). Fringe deals with weird medical/scientific research while the X-Files dealt more with the paranormal and extraterrestrial. But some of the stuff on Fringe...like mindreading that they showed in the clips for next week, could be considered X-Files territory.

I found the pilot intrigueing, if a little slow to start. I do think it would benefit from a little more skepticism from one of the characters, but over all not too bad. Not sure if I'll stick around for the long haul, but will give it a few more episodes to find it legs.

After all, I originally gave up on X-Files after 6 episodes, and only came back to it later and had to play catch-up, so I'll give this a chance to grab me.

This was written in part by the people behind Transformers, right? That would explain the clumsy, over-the-top writing. Acting wasn't exactly miles ahead of what it had to work with, either, and I thought the music was about as cliche as it could get.

The premiere was salvaged by occasional decency in line delivery and maybe ten minutes total of genuine intrigue. I'll give this series a few more episodes to warm up to me, as it does take many shows a bit of time to get good. But if it keeps up with what it had going for it last night, don't expect me to stick around for long.

Well on second viewing the lead character didn't make me chew quite as many chunks out of my desk, but I still don't like her very much. I'm still hopeful that she'll soften up a bit as the show progresses.


Word. I saw the sneak peak at the Paley Center for Media in LA on Friday. The actress is very wooden, imho. A friend mentioned that when he was in boot camp most of the women there acted like her because apparently showing emotion of any kind isn't a good thing in the military. Who knows. I just know that I was sick of looking at her bitter face during the episode.

However, John Noble aka "Dr. Bishop" ROCKED! I'll give it another go to see if some of the acting improves. I also think it's trying a bit too hard to be like X Files...but that's just me.

I really enjoyed this but Im not sure about keeping up with the bigger story. I kind of wanted more closure and resolve within the episode with a lingering backstory. I dont think I can keep up with another big story with lots of missing parts a-la Lost.

But then again I tend to prefer the stand alone eps for the xfiles and other shows.

Q & A w/TV Guide:


Fringe executive producer Roberto Orci (he of Transformers fame) gave me the official word on some of your burning questions about Tuesday's premiere episode. His answers were at times enlightening, at times frustrating, and, frankly, mostly kind of weird, all apropos for a show that sprung from the odd, fertile mind of J.J. Abrams. — Mickey O'Connor

What's up with those symbols (leaf, frog, etc.) that appear before commercial breaks? Are they some kind of puzzle that we're supposed to "figure out"?
Well, not exactly. "They are all things that look natural, but have more to them; they've been altered," says Orci. For now, he advises only that you note the order in which they appear on the series. For the record, so far we've only seen the leaf, which was floating around inside the Massive Dynamic handprint scanner in the final scene.

Why was Walter Bishop institutionalized in the first place? Sure, he's eccentric, but most of the time he seems perfectly lucid.
"He's certainly not cured of his ailments," Orci warns. "There will always be two steps forward, one step back [with Walter]." He said that viewers should be asking themselves: Was Walter's therapy in his best interest? How will being away from that therapy affect him? "If he seems lucid, it's just a fake comfort zone to put the audience in," he says.

Why do they have a cow in the lab? I know they said something about similar DNA, but why not a monkey or rats like they usually have in a lab?
"The question is, who is the cow really working for?" Orci jokes. He echoes what Peter Bishop says in the script: A cow is an ethical test subject, and its blood was used to synthesize the concoctions that saved Agent Scott's life. It probably doesn't hurt that walking a cow through the hallowed halls of Harvard makes for better TV than, say, a cage of rats.

Who is going to play Dr. William Bell? And when will we meet him? J.J. said it'll be before the end of Season 1.
"Even the actor who is going to play William Bell doesn't know that they're William Bell yet," he says, choosing his words very carefully and cryptically avoiding a gender-specific pronoun. (Note: He didn't say they haven't found the actor who will play Dr. Bell, although I suppose that could also be true.) Nevertheless, I press on. Has the actor been contracted for an unspecified role? "Not necessarily." Are they just overconfident that the actor will accept? "I think it's even more cryptic than that." Have we already met William Bell? "No." Um, OK, huh...? "It's a closely guarded secret," he says. Yeah, no kidding! My snap-judgment guess: Dr. Bell is now a cyborg.

When is Greg Grunberg going to show up?
He's not scheduled to appear yet, but never say never. Of course, Abrams' reputed good luck charm (he played the doomed pilot who gets eaten by the monster in Lost) has a full-time gig over on NBC's Heroes, so Orci jokes that he'll appear on Fringe "as soon as they kill him off."

Any chance the show's cool title cards ("Essex County, Massachusetts," etc.) were created by the same people who did the opening credits of David Fincher's Panic Room? They look similar.
Nope. As he did with Lost, Abrams designed the titles himself, which were then rendered by visual effects supervisor Kevin Blank, a longtime Abrams associate.

Will there be flashbacks to a) Walter's research days or b) Peter's unsavory past?
While Orci says that flashbacks are "not part of the DNA of what we've constructed," he allows that there might be episodes that deal with the Bishops' backstories anecdotally, but they will be contained, not a series of flashbacks over time.

What did they use to make Mark Valley's skin look so gross and translucent?
Like those long-suffering Sports Illustrated models who have their swimsuits painted on, Valley endured some time in the chair as the effects of his mystery illness were essentially (temporarily) tattooed on his skin. "We wanted to be able to see the actor breathing," says Orci.

While we're on the subject, Mark is a cast regular, despite his last scene ending with him on a gurney with a sheet drawn over his face. Is he dead, alive, or does it even matter?
Orci answers my question with a question. "Does [Agent Scott] live on merely in Olivia's mind, solely as a memory, or something else?" While Nina Sharp's final words — "Question him" — might indicate that Scott will be reanimated in some way, Orci says not so fast, Frankenstein. "She may have some technology to read his brain — while it's still fresh."

Do planes really land themselves at Logan Airport?
Apparently, planes can land themselves! According to Orci, the technology has existed since World War II, but isn't often used in commercial aviation.

I don't understand the twins' suicide mission... why would they want to kill everyone on board?
"Who says they're twins?" asks Orci of the two identical men, which makes my head explode. "Are they clones?" I ask. "I didn't say that!" he responds helpfully except not really at all. Clones? Oy, I need to lie down.

How did they film that scene with Blair Brown's cool robot arm? Does it have any unusual features or abilities?
Brown wore a "green screen" sleeve; the arm's Lucite casing and its intricate guts were rendered with CGI. Nevertheless, Orci assures me that there's nothing more to the quixotic Nina Sharp's iArm (it looks like Apple designed it, right?) than a standard medical prosthesis.

Is the Massive Dynamic headquarters a real building? Both the interior and the exterior looked way CGI to me.
Here's a tricky answer. In the early preview version of the pilot that I watched, MD's HQ looked an awful lot like the spiky forms of the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto (see photo here). Orci says that since production has moved to New York City, Massive Dynamic has been recast, and will be played by a young, up-and-coming actor named World Trade Center 7 (photo here). He did say that the building's futuristic interior graphics and animation were their addition for the TV show. Hey, guess what? Massive Dynamic has a Web site! Let the conspiracy theories begin!

How often will Lance Reddick appear, and has his casting on Fringe changed his role on Lost at all?
Reddick is in every episode, says Orci, but will still have time to hop over to Hawaii to shoot his appearances on Lost. "We have a good relationship with those Lost people," he deadpans, about Abrams' other series. He goes on to say that Reddick's casting on Fringe was done with full knowledge of his Lost obligations.

Will Olivia Dunham ever crack a smile?
"Not if we can help it," snarks Orci. "As you know, we like to make women cry," an apparent reference to Jennifer Garner's teary Sydney Bristow on Alias.

http://weblogs.variety.com/on_the_air/2008/09/fringe-premiere.html

"Fringe" got off to a surprisingly modest start for Fox last night.

It did respectable business, for sure, for a new show, winning the night for Fox in the adults 18-49 derby. But for all the promotion Fox gave it and for J.J. Abrams standing in the sci-fi/fantasy TV world, you would've expected more people to show up for the first seg.

Airing from 8-9:35 p.m., "Fringe" averaged about 9 million viewers and a 3.2 rating/9 share in adults 18-49, according to prelim Nielsens. The good news is that viewers didn't flee from the show at the half-hour marks. And "Fringe" will get a boost next week when it airs at 9 p.m. with a lead-in from the mighty "House."

I have to disagree with those of you who don't care for Anna Torv as Olivia Dunham. I think she's fantastic. I get to observe a lot of female police officers and detectives at my job. Torv's performance is pretty much in character with some of those women I know. Tough, professional, and still in many surprising ways sensitive and caring.

a frog, 6 fingered hand, also the leaf had the greek letter for alpha on it. hmmmmm.....
anyway i thought it was good, the only problem was the prosthetic arm looked to fake. i liked the placement title cards were interesting, trying to stay away from the x-files typewriter-esk titles
i found it to be very interesting, gives you an aspect of real science with psudo-science, and the arc sounds interesting, who is doing experiments on the human race? It was very unpredictable, whcih is what I like in a show, like Lost, and I'm sad that there was only one lost refrence in the whole pilot, i'll be watching closely for more!

Sneak peek for 1x02:http://spoilergeeks.blogspot.com/2008/09/fringe-sneak-peek.html

Spoiler bit:Abe: Psst...Any secrets on Fringe?

Just like Sydney Bristow, Olivia (Anna Torv) was recruited for a reason, and Peter (Josh Jackson) has a "medical history" his father is hiding from him. These seem to be the early overarching questions that will go for a while—along with what is "the Pattern," what Mark Valley's deal was and how is Anna Torv's hair so shiny? Although I may be the only one who cares about that last thing.

Marta: Fringe is too freaky for me! I'm a wuss. Does it get any less scary?

Truth be told, the second episode is perhaps even more intense and shocking than the first and involves a scene that will make Sigourney Weaver's alien birth look like a walk in the park. But it is very compelling, and I have to say, I think I'm hooked after the very end of the episode. Watch for the last flash and then please tell me WTF. (Who the frak?!) P.S. You can watch this episode without having seen the first and still easily follow, so it's not too late to get in: Tuesday on Fox.

I'd pretty much guarantee she's playing the character exactly how she's supposed to. She's a NIDA graduate. You've got to be oozing talent to get into that place, let alone survive it. So if you're finding her a bit cool it's probably what's called for by the writing. Maybe that will warm up over time.

I watched the first episode because my younger sister told me it would be good stuff ( I absolutely trust and respect her opinion regarding movies ) and she was right. It is an interesting show even when I know nothing about J.J. Abrahams' previous work ( even when my sister was a big fan of "Alias" at the beginning and my Dad loved "Lost" ), a little weird, but what the heck, Sci Fi shows are mostly weird.

My favorite character is Walter. Genius Mad Scientist and the best actor of the whole bunch by far.

If Dr. Nutjob turns out to be an evil puppetmaster who has been faking madness and pulling strings all along I'll be able to live with his characterization. But if we're honestly supposed to believe he's just a fumbling ex-mad scientist then I cry foul at the writing. Or possibly the acting. :P The character is too over-the-top to be believable. The subject matter of the eps is more realistic.

He did some of the more... interesting episodes of X-Files. Usually the funny ones. Jose Chung's 'From Outer Space' still makes me giggle just thinking about it. ;) Did a couple eps of Millennium, too. He mostly does "consulting producer" stuff now (and was thusly involved with Bionic Woman, which isn't such a stellar resume item). He's done a bit of acting, too, although it's his writing that I love. I wonder how much actual consulting he does, though. Huh.

Yeah, the Dr. character is certianly interesting, and has potential.

Watched the first two episodes. I usually like science fiction and mystery series, but this show isn't science fiction it is about psuedo science. A show that has such stupid science shouldn't take itself to seriously. This kind of stuff belongs in a comedy. The first episode was ok on the mystery aspect, but the second was just boring. Won't be watching this show again.

Talking about crowded time slots: "Stargate Atlantis" airs on FX ( Latin America ) at the exact time of "Fringe" and "The Mentalist". Since I live on the border, I get American channels too, so I decided to watch "Fringe", flip channels during commercia breaks to check out "The Mentalist" ( and wait 'till mexican cable system picks the show ) and see the rest of "Atlantis" on DVD :o

Finally got around to checking out this show, admittedly, because it's a JJ Abrams production. I'll admit, I enjoyed the first 2 seasons of Alias. So I was excited to see what new thing he came up with this time around.

New? Not so much.

Don't get me wrong, I'm interested and I thoroughly enjoyed the pilot and the second episode, but the similarities between the two shows are striking.

Female main character working as an agent for a government organization, loses the love of her life, and ends up working for an uber-secretive organization.

Conspiracies and secrets abound and no one is who or what they appear to be.

Again, I liked it and I'll be watching more episodes to see what road this whole takes. I'm just sayin'.... Abrams isn't exactly revolutionizing the thriller genre.

Quick question, are we supposed to be assuming that Bishop genetically altered his son pre-birth or that he had some potentially fatal medical problem that required the good doctor to do something to him later in life?

Thanks for the promo, MrsB.

Fringe episode 3 - The Ghost Network

Certainly an interesting concept and episode that seems to have raised more questions than it answered.

We're introduced here to the idea that there are a spectrum of electromagnetive waves lying outside the edge of those already discovered and that they could be used to communicate information. The Ghost Newtork, as it came to be called by the American governement who wanted to use for their own nefarious purposes.

Bishop and Bell (in their secret experiment, Harvard days) tested out this hypothesis on a lowly sophomore by injecting an iridium-based organo-metallic compound into the subject's brain and to create sort of reciever for these messages, if you will.

Over time, the compound multiplied (due to environmental exposures, it's not really made clear) and the subject did become an inadvertent reciever for messages sent by some secret organization who'd perfected Bishop's theory while he was cooped up in the loony bin.

Turns out, some undercover DEA agent overhears some talk about the Pattern (which is a no no) and so the unidentified bad guys launch a chemical attack utilisizing a silicone-based gaseous compound that solidifies when exposed to nitrogen on a bus in order to grab the backpack she's carrying because they think it contains information about the Pattern that she's turning over to her handler in the DEA.

Not so, apparently. Turns out she'd had some sort of chip implanted into her hand that somehow recorded her brain waves and thus enabled whomever had the technology to read the data and see and hear exactly what she had seen and heard.

This disk makes it into the hands of Nina at Massive Dynamec after the DEA agent's handler secretly extracts it from her hand in order to turn it over to the Pattern-wielding bad guys. He gets caught, the Pattern agent gets chased down, the FBI gets ahold of the chip, and the Pattern agent throws himself in front of a bus (how very Tolstoy-esque of him) instead of allowing himself to get captured.

Nina hands the chip to some scientist to decrypt and then informs us that she's doing the same to the ship that had been implanted in Agent Scott (dun dun dun).

What will happen to Scott and his memories after this, we don't know.

All in all, I have to say it managed to keep me interested. And only because I'm refusing to actually allow my brain to refute the "science" being thrown out into the open here.

Pandora's_Box
September 24th, 2008, 08:05 AM
I am left with some questions (HA!) after this however,

How much does Boyles know about what Nina and Massive Dynamec are up to? He seems to be heading this anti-Pattern group, but I wonder if he's not really in the dark instead.

What exactly did Bishop do to Peter? Obviously something otherwise he would't have mentioned the medical history. And the more I think about it, and think back to the first episode, the more his initial reaction to Peter starts to sound less like crazy-man talk and more like curious scientist talk. Maybe he was expecting Peter to be more filled out because he'd manipulated his genome in some way. Maybe he checked Peter's pupils not because he's insane, but because something he did had changed them from before (maybe part of what had been wrong with Peter, if anything) and he wanted to make sure they were still alright. For that matter, maybe he didn't actually want to see Peter out of any fatherly concern in the asylum, but out of professional interest.

Bishop continues to baffle me, so kudos to the actor for playing him so well.

Did the DEA agent know she was in possession of that implanted chip? If not, then is every agent implanted with one? Scott was. And if the Pattern agents knew about the chip (they did, didn't they?) why didn't they know it was in her hand.

Best line delivery:

"Someone else it seems, and I'm somewhat jealous of this..." - Bishop

Another question (always with the questions):

What's with the images at the end of every episode. After the second it was the brain MRI image what doubled like an apple with two seeds shaped like babies-in-utero on either side of the longitudanal fissure of the brain.
In the third episode we have the frog with the upper-case Phi symbol on its back.
I can't recall what the pilot episode had, if anything.

Meaning?

After watching last night episode, I'm a devoted fan of Dr. Bishop ! When he asked if they wanted the test subject guy back dead or alive :) , and when he said you could get free cable out of this guy... :D I couldn't help myself and started laughing out loud.

For those of you who ever wondered what would happen if Dr. House was nicer...well, he would become Dr. Walter Bishop !

Isn't that the premise of the show though?

Bishop and Bell did this research for the U.S. Army back in the 70s and now some group has managed to expand on it and semi-perfect it. So what we're seeing are going to be major elements of that initial research.

Or am I totally off base?

Why do I even bother with Fox anymore. Fringe IMHO is drivel and bad drivel at that. I thought ok, the pilot was hit and miss (more miss), so I got suckered in to watching the next 2 episodes. Well, it went bad to worse, if this wasn't on Fox it would have never been made or been shelved by now.

And to think Fox canceled New Amsterdam (which was at least a decent show) to give us this. :rolleyes:

Oh man.

I feel exactly the opposite. While New Amsterdam wasn't horrible, I honestly don't think it was that awesome. Certainly not worth keeping around in my opinion.

but I can see how Fringe may not be everyone's cup of tea. Is it the "pseudo-science" you have a problem with, the acting, or the general concept and delivery of the show?

FOX is not the only network cancelling promising shows. ABC pulled "Daybreak" of the air after just nine episodes and it wasn´t that bad. CBS axed "Moonlight" just when the show was getting better :( and NBC took "Life" out of their line-up, then they bring it on again; I don't know yet if it is in or out. And "Bionic Woman" was heavily promoted but it just never had a chance.

I liked "New Amsterdam". It wasn't the best of shows but it was interesting. I don't know how the TV execs' brains tickle, but sometimes I doubt there's a brain in there at all. Bringing back "Forever Knight" ???? P-L-E-A-S-E !

Maybe the most famous case of sudden wrongful death was "Firefly".

To me, "Fringe" is quite interesting so far even when some characters are far out. Mysterious Lady With Robotic Arm ? Mysterious FBI Deceased Agent Who May or May not Become a Frankenstein Monster ? :p So far, so good, and I'll keep watching the show. ;)

Fringe gets full season:

Fans of Fringe can let out a collective sigh of relief: The suspense will continue and the mysteries just might get solved (maybe). Fox has ordered a full season of J.J. Abrams' freshman drama following a promising first few weeks, the network confirms to TVGuide.com. Fringe's benefits to the net have been consistently good ratings since its 90-minute opener Sept. 9, with an average 10.7 million total viewers each week, landing it at the top of debut adult shows this fall.

Also i liked how the father-son relationship got progress int hat we explored it more. i'm also glad for one cliche that we didn't see, at the end when Dr. bishop talk to his assistant and appologizes for his wrong-doing, but she didn't respond which is better than her saying "oh thank you, it's ok" or something a long that line.

I think this episode was different in style from the ones preceding it, but I don't see it as weaker or more cliche than the rest of them.

If anything, I think this episode was stronger....giant vibrator aside.

More than anything, I really enjoyed the development between Peter and Walter. We were fed little tidbits of information about their history, about Peter's mother and her relationship with Walter, and we got a little clue as to why Walter may have commented on Peter's medical history to Olivia. What happened to Peter after that accident?

Noble played Walter ridiculously well in this episode. The man (the character) is actually mentally unstable. I don't think I really believed it until now, and while he may not be the popular definition of "insane", you can see that he isn't all there all the time. His personality flips and he's quick to anger and impatience, but he can still make sense of the world around most of the time, and the only thing that seems to seperate him from everyone else is his inability to communicate in terms that everyone else understands?

Has he always been like this? The comment about his wife suggests that he's been like this for a long time at least.

And I rather enjoyed the lack of too much mention about The Pattern or Massive Dynamec.

Just my two cents.

Although the plots waver between thin and dodgy at times... but I'm sufficiently entertained by the father-son dynamic to keep persevering.

I can't help being constantly surprised at how good Joshua Jackson is in the role of Peter Bishop. I'm hoping (and there's no reason to think otherwise) that he'll move on to bigger and better things other than being his father's translator and babysitter.

On the other hand, I'm not very impressed with the way Olivia is drawn thus far... too many mood swings for my liking... and yet another brilliant detective person with a dysfunctional background. *Yawn*

Future Episode Details (spoilers):

Episode 1x09 "The Dreamscape"


A Massive Dynamic employee (guest star Ptolemy Slocum) is so convinced he is being attacked by butterflies that he jumps out of a window to escape them, and the team is called in to investigate. Although Olivia’s unexplained interaction with Agent Scott (Mark Valley) leads to breaks in the case, she is so desperate to rid her consciousness of him that she demands to go back in the tank.

After a young music prodigy (guest star Charlie Tahan) is taken by a serial kidnapper (guest star Gillian Jacobs), it’s discovered that a sequence of flashing lights appeared at the abduction, which Walter links back to his bunkmate (guest star Randall Duk Kim) at St. Claire’s Hospital.

I allowed for the guys hand to pass through the safe wall. I'm not a science-buff so this is a guess, but I think it was probably vibrating at certain frequencies in some kind of pattern. That would tie in with the red and green lights thing as well as the emphasis on music. Something like that. :rolleyes:

Wow, Fringe is a great basic sci-fi show. It has a perfect mix of an episodic show (mini-movie every week with a beginning and an end) with a little overall arc. Someone could actually hop in it in the middle of the season and still enjoy the show while missing that every events is somehow linked. I'm interested every week to know what the new show will be about. I like the effort they put into the sci-fi elements, showing us indirectly that it could possibly happens in some way in the future. It does have a good mix of humor, storytelling, drama and characterization.

Agreed. I thought it started out OK... certainly not the wow that it was hyped up to be but it confirms what I now believe. A show needs at least 8-10 episodes before you can really determine its quality. Fringe keeps getting better.
