TV Thursday- One of My Favorite Shows: Fringe

I just wanted to focus this week on one of my favorite TV shows at present and that is Fringe on Fox. I know this show isn't for everyone's taste, unless you are a big fan of the paranormal and mystery together genre...like X-files, etc. So I thought I'd share my thoughts on this great show.

The pilot episode introduces us to Special Agent Olivia Dunham who lands a case where an entire plane load of people are killed without crashing. We learn her partner/lover may be a traitor and somehow involved. Basically, we learn there is a sinister group in the world experimenting on the world. In order to make sense of what's happening and the science involved they turn to Dr. Walter Bishop, a man who's been in the insane asylum for twenty years. Joining them is his genius son Peter to help keep him from going completely bonkers. Dr. Bishop worked for the government on secret experiments called fringe science, thus the name.

The three characters work so well together along with the few other semi-regulars. I love Olivia's character...she's tough yet caring and she doesn't worry about having her hair curled and beautified every day nor tons of makeup. It's really refreshing to have a female character like that on TV. She's beautiful because of who she is, not because of what she looks like.

It's a wonderful combination of paranormal, conspiracy-theory nuttiness that I just love! The first season is on DVD! So check it out if haven't yet.

If you watch this show why do you love it? If you don't, what show on TV are you just completely in love with and why!??

  4. We watched the first few episodes and then caught behind in our tv watching and gave it up. Maybe this summer when there's nothing on tv I can get the dvds from he library. I really liked it.
