“Fringe” on Fox Works!

–Fringe (after “Fringe Science”) is a new show on Fox whose pilot debuted September 9th that promises to delve into the paranormal outskirts of science, and appears to deliver.  If you liked The X-Files, you’ll probably enjoy Fringe, which even includes a female FBI agent, Olivia Dunham, played by Anna Torv.  A creation of J.J. Abrams, the show mixes horror, thrills, and comedy, and is reminiscent not only of X-Files but also The Twilight Zone, The Night Stalker, Twin Peaks, and even the movie, Altered States.

Just when people were overcoming their jitters about flying, the opening episode commenced with a jet in a thunderstorm suddenly stricken with a flesh-eating condition that transformed everyone on board into a juicy cadaver. The jet lands on auto-pilot, where it is descended upon by FBI, CIA, and other operatives in hazmat suits. Acting, writing, photography, and atmospherics of the show were excellent, keeping the audience on edge and keeping you wanting more.

This is not a “furry” themed show, but as this blog often touches on the strange and the unexplained, fans of the same may have a winner to watch here; Fringe is well-worth a look! In the 1990’s the X-Files told us that the truth is out there. In 2008, Fringe teaches that everything is part of a pattern. Upcoming episodes promise to get into topics like precognition, teleportation, and other cool stuff…I’m in!!!

    I, too, have watched this show from the beginning. And, yes, it does rival THE X-FILES and NIGHTSTALKER: TOS.
