    Default Fringe (spoilers too)

    Anyone watch the newest Fox show Fringe from the developers of Lost!

    Spoiler:
    I'm hooked already!. There are Lost elements to include the transition music and the character that plays Abbadon on Lost is Special Agent Phillip Broyles of Homeland Security - and I do not think he is on the up and up!

    Like Lost, Fringe starts with a plane crash but with deadlier consequences than Lost!

    Like Lost there is an evil corporation - this time its Massive Dynamic headed by William Bell - whom we do not get to meet! Instead we see the Executive Director Nina Sharp who has a robotic arm/hand. The pilot ends with Nina ordering an employee to question Special Agent John Scott - but he has been dead for 5 hours!


    The show has plenty of comic elements and already relationships are being drawn and in some cases drawn apart! Estranged wacko scientist and genius son! Agent Olivia Dunham played by newcomer Anna Torv and special agent John Scott who is not what he seems! Agent Dunham and Special Agent Broyles buttng heads! Jean the cow! "I don't speak Walter," "I also speak Farsi!" Spongebob Squarepants! The mid air suspended signs that tell you where the action is taking place! Great stuff!

    This show is all about science that is not really science or science that is on the edge - paranormal stuff, non-aging, knowing stuff that you shouldn't know! And like Lost, plenty of unanswered questions! You gotta love it!!!

    I already can't wait til next Tuesday!

    I watched it last night (encore showing this Sunday for those that missed it). I was impressed.

    When I first heard about the show I was a little skeptical that I was going to like it. I loved Alias when it first started, and Lost when it started as well. The problem with both shows (IMO) is the dedication it takes to watch every week - cause it you don't you'll end up seriously lost (no pun intended). Alias wasn't as bad as Lost in regards to needing to watch every week, but the never ending "new questions" but never any answers got to me.

    But, as I stated, I was impressed with the first episode of Fringe. I really hope this show is more about stand-alone episodes within a larger story, instead of the telling of larger story in bits and pieces (if that made sense ).

    I'm looking forward to next Tuesday too!

    I saw it and liked it very much. Love is a strong word but it's definitely hooked me.

    I found the pre-commercial break images on black with the moving white dot VERY intriguing (the frog, the leaf, the butterfly).

    That's not a spoiler, right?

    I too am on board. I think the greatest Abrams standout was the letting through out the episode. Pure Lost.

    When two fit, it makes you think
    I got the cute one, my woman
    She says, "Lovin's all I bring"
    And it's her loving that's a wonderful thing.
    Lovin' yes we are, it's such a wonderful thing

    I missed it when it was originally on, but had taped it and just got around to watching it. I really enjoyed it, and can't wait to see the next episode.

    I did too, as well as that commercial they showed before the previews for the season.

    Already set up the dvr for the whole season. I was blown away by the episode... my wife actually liked it which was a shock!
    Spoiler:
    The whole idea about the "fringe science" drew me in immediately.


    After watching last night I'm happy to say I haven't read the first comic yet. I'll get on that tonight.

    I watched the pilot episode the other day and I really enjoyed it! I had been anticipating the premiere since summer and I'm glad that it's finally on! I really am enjoying the cool plot, characters, etc. As a huge LOST fan, who doesn't love the transition music?

    I can not wait until tonight to see the next episode. I saw a sneak peak of it last night with
    Spoiler:
    the girl giving birth to that "creature/thing"
    and it looks very promising! It's going to be the highlight of my night.

    Episode 2 was just as fantastic, those first five minutes were quite a doozy! I'm totally hooked.

    I watched the encore premiere on Sunday, and liked it a lot, but was too tired from work to stay awake through tonight's episode. No worries though, we taped it for my dad, so I'll be watching it later. I've been wanting a series like this ever since the X-Files started it's infamous decline.

    Really enjoyed last nights episode. Maybe even more than the pilot. I have a feeling that it's going to be a lot like LOST in regard to more and more unanswered questions each week. If they don't go completely off track, I'm fine with it!

    Looking forward to next Tuesday!

    The relationship between Special Agent Broyles (Homeland Security) and FBI Agent Olivia Dunham is already becoming more and more interesting. I really enjoyed her last comment to him about
    Spoiler:
    getting a pay raise - brilliant response
    .

    I can't tell yet whether or not I am going to like massive Dynamice Executive Director Nina Sharpe, but she sure plays an interesting role.

    The wacko scientist is just that - finding his car and milking the cow - priceless! And his genius son, whose backstory we need, fills out the main cast beautifully - Along with the junior FBI Agent.

    I like the fact that there seems to be a finite story within the overall story each episode - in case I ever miss an episode I won't feel Lost - no pun intended! :-)

    I'm suprised no one has posted regarding last night's episode yet! I hope you all didn't forget about it!

    Each episode just keeps getting better and better. Which is pretty rare in TV series these days. You usually have a couple good ones, a bad one, back to a good one, etc. Not with Fringe!

    Last night's episode was amazing! I'm skipping talking about the first 45 minutes because the ending just amazed me. Once we saw Agent Broyles talking to someone (and not showing us WHO he was talking to) and then revealing it to be Nina--my jaw dropped. They know something we don't know! Just when it couldn't get an better, it did. The last scene when
    Spoiler:
    we see a human in the incubator and then they reveal it to be John!
    That made my jaw drop for the second time.

    I have a feeling that we'll be seeing more of growing/cloning people in future episodes.

    Really looking forward to next week's episode!

    Ricky what happened at the end of the episode last night. I fell asleep and missed probably about the last 10-15 min. What was that thing in the hand, did they find out? and what happened to the guy that could see what was going on? And what's this about Agent Broyles and Nina?

    Heather! I wish you could've stayed awake--it was amazing. If you want to see the ending, you can go to Fox's website and click on FRINGE. Once there you can watch full episdoes. I really think you'd get enjoyment out of the ending, but if you want, I could just tell you.

    Thanks, I didn't even think of that. I'll check it out.

    Edit - I just went and watched it. Very good!

    I'm still not convinced I'm going to stick with the show. I'm not sure I'm ready for another years-long conspiracy, even if they do wrap some things up each week.

    I like it...I just think the Doc is a bit over the top. If they don't make that worse, I'll keep watching.

    I'm sticking with it! They will probalby go to reruns about the time Lost starts us Season 6 so I am good to go - one show at a time. I did see the previews of Prison Break and it looks pretty good but I am at least two seasons behind right now!

    I agree CRinVa, once LOST starts again, I'll be fine! Right now, FRINGE will have to suffice.

    I really enjoyed last night's episode.

    Spoiler:

    I'm convinced the bald man is a time-traveler, my wife is convinced he's an alien.
    I was surprised to find out that he had saved Walter and Peter from certain death many years ago. It means that he/they are not simply observing things. My personal theory is that the bald man(men) are a result of Walter's research.

    I wish they would have given us a little more info about the guy that was after the cylinder. For instance did he get all of his information about Walter and Peter from Peter's mind? It sure seemed to me that he knew a LOT about Peter and Walter. I wonder if he wasn't under the control of Walter's mysterious former partner who started Massive Dynamic?


    Can't wait for next week now...
