The True Star of the Fringe

My credentials as Chief Geek of this blog need refreshing.  The smartest, and best written, science fiction show currently on the air is The Fringe.    The show relates the adventures of a team working for the FBI that explore fringe events involving advanced science, extra-terrestrial aliens and other paranormal events.  It is a much better written and funnier X-files.  The team consists of two FBI agents, a mad scientist, the mad scientist’s son and a cow. John Noble does a superb job as mad scientist Walter Bishop as indicated in the above video where he engages in an inflora experiment on the friendliest of fruits.  Go here for some of the best of Walter clips. 

The true star of the show of course is Gene.  Go here to see a tribute video to her.  If you haven’t seen the show, go here to watch some episodes on Hulu.  New episodes are broadcast at 8:00 PM Central Standard Time Thursdays on Fox.

    As a fellow geek who is too busy to stay on track with a series – do I have to watch every episode to get into it? If I do I can’t watch it as I don’t usually have the time – That I cme I never watched Battlestar Gallactica or 24… If I missed a week I got lost – then lost interest…

  2. I agree completely with Donald. That feels so weird to write….

    Robert, the shows usually begin with summaries to bring viewers up to date.

    Tony, we will call this the first Fringe miracle!

    If this is yet another JJ Abrams creation that relies on time travel and/or parallel-universe gimmickry (as opposed to, you know, something with an actual plot), I would advise all of you to back away rigt now before anyone gets hurt. Otherwise, before you know it, there’ll be yet another seven seasons of your life gone that you’re never ever going to get back. You have been warned.
