The series follows a Federal Bureau of Investigation "Fringe Division" team based in Boston, Massachusetts under the supervision of Homeland Security. .The team uses unorthodox "fringe" science and FBI investigative techniques to investigate "the Pattern", a series of unexplained, often ghastly occurrences that are happening all over the world.^ Fringe , instead, gave us a series of mysteries, The Observer, mysterious going-ons, weird science , none of which seemed really interconnected to each other or anything else.

Plot

.Fringe follows the exploits of special agent Olivia Dunham, mad scientist Walter Bishop, and his son, jack-of-all-trades Peter Bishop, as they investigate aspects of fringe science (rare diseases, chimeras, transhumans with psychic abilities, teleportation, and so forth).^ And then Bishop starts mad-scientisting out all over the formula.

^ Hi Sups, after watching Star Wars Episodes 1, 2 and 3, now I understand how merciless the Emperor was when Darth Vader said in the classic trilogy: "The Emperor is not as forgiving as I am."

.Fringe is in many ways an experiment for us, which is, we believe it is possible to do a show that does have an overall story and end game, which Fringe absolutely does… We can do a show that has that, so that there's a direction the show is going and there's an ultimate story that's being told, but also a show that you don't have to watch episodes one, two and three to tune into episode four."^ But "The Dark Knight" showed us the way.

Season 1

.All over the world, a series of apparent experiments collectively referred to as " The Pattern" (e.g., a newborn baby who rapidly ages and dies within a few minutes, a bus full of passengers trapped in a strange resin, like mosquitoes trapped in amber) are occurring for reasons unknown.^ And apparently most of that stuff happened within 24 hours, otherwise Doofus dies...

.Connected to the Pattern is 'Massive Dynamic', a megacorporation which is a leading global technology company, holding the patents for a diverse number of new and significant technologies.^ I can see how everything is connected ie Massive Dynamic, Bishop and the Homeland Security dude, makes me keep on asking questions, ill see how this one goes.

Their enemy is ZFT (Zerstörung durch Fortschritte der Technologie), a bioterrorist organization which is orchestrating all of the strange occurrences in order to prepare for a destructive technological singularity. .Tying both sides together is a nootropic drug, called Cortexiphan, that was developed by Walter and his partner, William Bell (now chairman of Massive Dynamic), which Olivia and a number of others were treated with as children.^ Fringe Bloggers point out a number of fun little clues: the motel is named "Belle Motel" -- a reference to William Bell perhaps?

.Events also reveal to the viewer that a tragedy had occurred to the Peter of this universe, and Walter had abducted the alternate universe's Peter to replace him, though only Walter is aware of this knowledge.^ With Walt's mentioning that he lost someone treasured to him and as such hoped to take the "alternate" version as a replacement, coupled with Peter's mentioning that he doesn't recall collecting coins as a child, and the fact that towards the end it's revealed Peter actually died as a young child, one can easily extrapolate that the current Peter Bishop is actually the Peter Bishop from the alternate reality.

Season 2

Olivia is returned from her trip to the parallel universe, but is unable to remember much of it; Nina Sharp provides Olivia with the name of a bowling alley owner who works with her to help to remember her travels. .Alongside this, Olivia's partner Charlie is killed by a shapeshifter, who takes his form and receives instructions from the parallel universe to monitor Olivia.^ And then Olivia takes her niece to an amusement park where they ride roller coasters and are stalked by Observers who marvel at how horrible her life is about to become.

Production

Co-created by J. J. Abrams, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, Fringe is produced by Bad Robot in association with Warner Bros. Television. .Abrams's inspiration for Fringe came from a range of sources, including the writings of Michael Crichton, the Ken Russell film Altered States, and the television series The X-Files and The Twilight Zone.^ Well, a typical episode of Fringe actually, but, also, one of the more entertaining and least appreciated series on television right now.

^ (SuperShadow: I look forward to seeing the Star Trek 11 movie from J.J. Abrams, who is a co-creator of the Fringe TV series.

[13] Additionally, Orci stated that it is a combination of a procedural and an "extremely serialized and very culty" series, quoting as examples of each, Law & Order and Lost.[14] Jeff Pinkner was selected to act as the head show runner and executive producer. Abrams noted that he trusts Pinkner after working together with him on Alias and Lost.[15] .Michael Giacchino, Abrams' frequent collaborator, composed the music for the pilot of Fringe, before handing over duties to his assistants Chad Seiter and Chris Tilton;[16] Giacchino retains an on-screen credit.^ Giacchino didn't compose the Pilot's music, than it's a blatant rip-off of the scene in the Lost s04 finale in which Sayid is racing towards the shore on the boat.

The two-hour pilot episode, filmed in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, cost a total of $10 million to create.[17] .A cow used in the pilot episode had to be recast when production of Season 1 was moved to New York, due to livestock restrictions preventing it from being brought from Canada to the United States.^ (SuperShadow: Being broadcast after a successful TV show is the easiest means for a new TV series to find a large enough audience to earn a second season worth of episodes.

^ So, the plan for now is that I continue with this episode, "Johari Window," and move forward from there with the rest of this season -- which, as far as I can tell, only has 3 more episodes.

Casting

The first actors cast were Kirk Acevedo and Mark Valley, who portrayed FBI agents Charlie Francis and John Scott, respectively.[24] John Noble and Lance Reddick, who play Dr. Walter Bishop and Homeland Security agent Phillip Broyles joined the cast later on.[1] .Casting of Anna Torv, Blair Brown, and Jasika Nicole, who play Olivia Dunham, Massive Dynamic employee Nina Sharp,[25] and Astrid Farnsworth, a federal agent and assistant to Olivia Dunham, respectively, followed;[26] while Joshua Jackson, who plays Peter Bishop, was the last main character to be cast.^ For once, a female character who'd driven almost completely by the main agenda, and who doesn't do the "Hollywood Female Freakout" when confronted with the unknown.

On April 8, 2009, it was announced that Leonard Nimoy would appear as Walter Bishop's former lab partner, Dr. William Bell in the first season's finale, which explores the existence of an ominous parallel universe. Nimoy will return as Dr. Bell for an extended arc, and according to Orci, Bell will be "the beginning of the answers to even bigger questions."[29][30] .This choice led one reviewer to question if Fringe's plot might be an homage to the Star Trek episode "Mirror, Mirror", which featured an alternate reality "mirror universe" concept and an evil version of Spock distinguished by a goatee.^ Well, a typical episode of Fringe actually, but, also, one of the more entertaining and least appreciated series on television right now.

Setting

.Fringe is set at Harvard University, but was actually filmed at Yale University.^ As a recent fan of the "expanded universe" of the Star Wars novels, I am as anxious to have the next set of Star Wars sequel films out as anyone.

Typically depicted are scenes of Phelps Hall and Branford College. Initially, it was also filmed at The University of Toronto's University College and Bahen Centre for Information Technology. Upon productions moving to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada for season 2, the University of British Columbia now stands in for Harvard.

Reception

One of many marketing posters used to promote the series featuring a twist on a common image. Pictured is a leaf with an embedded golden triangle.
.The pilot episode was watched by 9.13 million viewers, garnering 3.2/9 Nielsen ratings among adults 18–49, with ratings improving over the course of the episode.^ For the second episode, it followed the fifth season premiere of "House," and the number went up from 9 million to 13.3 million.

^ Just got through watching the Pilot episode and it has some potential.
  • Fringe *spoilers* - Television 16 September 2009 23:20 UTC forums.whirlpool.net.au [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

[35] .Ratings improved greatly for the second episode, "The Same Old Story" which 13.27 million people watched, making it the fifth most watched show of the week.^ One of the most over rated pathetic shows I have ever watched.
  • Fringe *spoilers* - Television 16 September 2009 23:20 UTC forums.whirlpool.net.au [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

^ Last week, NINE million people watched the premiere of "Fringe."

^ Still the show is entertaining and I will continue to watch but I'm just not sure how far it can go when it keeps on regurgitating the same sequence of events.
  • Fringe *spoilers* - Television 16 September 2009 23:20 UTC forums.whirlpool.net.au [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

[36] .As of October 2008, the show had achieved the first place in the 18–49 demographic among new shows.^ (SuperShadow: The live action TV show takes place after Revenge of the Sith but prior to the events of A New Hope.

[37] As a whole, the series was well received by the critics. Barry Garron at Hollywood Reporter found it promising because "it is reminiscent of battle-of-the-sexes charm."[38] Robert Bianco, USA Today, said, "What Abrams brings to Fringe is a director's eye for plot and pace, a fan's love of sci-fi excitement, and a story-teller's gift for investing absurd events with real emotions and relatable characters."[39] Travis Fickett of IGN gave it 7.6 out of 10, calling it "a lackluster pilot that promises to be a pretty good series."[40] While Tim Goodman of the San Francisco Chronicle remarked that it was "boundlessly ambitious",[41] Chicago Sun-Times's Misha Davenport called it an "update of The X-Files with the addition of terrorism and the office of Homeland Security."[42]
.The pilot episode was negatively received by the Parents Television Council, who named the show the worst of the week and denounced the "excessive violence and gore".[43] In its 2008 Year in Review, Television Without Pity declared Fringe one of the year's biggest disappointments, commenting that the show is "entertaining" and "the cast is largely strong" but the character development is insufficient.^ Well, a typical episode of Fringe actually, but, also, one of the more entertaining and least appreciated series on television right now.

The untrustworthy Nina Sharp is well-acted but "one-note and lazily written" and Lance Reddick's character is also "under-developed". [44]
The Daily Herald comments that Fringe is promising and "it may yet develop into a worthwhile program" but has "largely been spinning its wheels".[45]
.Meanwhile, in other articles recounting the best and worst of 2008, The New York Times stated that Fringe "is the best of a rash of new series that toy with the paranormal."^ They felt arbitrary at best, lazy rip-offs of other projects at their worst.

The author goes on to praise the cast saying that "Much credit belongs to Anna Torv who stars as an F.B.I. agent investigating bizarre murders that all appear to be linked to a powerful and mysterious multinational corporation" and "Ms. Torv is backed up ably by John Noble as a crazy but brilliant fringe scientist and his level-headed but skeptical son, played by Joshua Jackson."[46]
Additional praise came from Entertainment Weekly, which stated "The best new show of the year took a few weeks to grow on me, but now it's a full-blown addiction",[47] from iF Magazine, stating that "the new X-Files is fun, weird and has just enough questions that we aren’t re-creating LOST all over again just with new people in a new setting"[48] and from the LA Times, calling Walter Bishop one of the best characters of 2008, saying that "the role of the modern-day mad scientist could so easily have been a disaster, but the 'Fringe' writers and the masterful John Noble have conspired to create a character that seems, as trite as it sounds, more Shakespearean than sci-fi."[49] Chicago Tribune states that some episodes are "distressingly predictable and formulaic" but adds that there have also been some excellent episodes.[50]
.A version of the show (edited for time) premiered on the Nine Network in Australia on September 17, 2008.[51] The following month, Fringe also premiered on Ireland's TV3 (October 1), Sweden's Kanal 5 (October 2), and the United Kingdom's Sky1 (October 5).^ Wednesday, September 17, 2008 .

On August 27, 2008, a prequel comic book for the series written by Zack Whedon was released by DC Comics under its WildStorm imprint.[1][58] This was to be the first issue of a monthly 6-issue limited series but the others were delayed until January 2009, when monthly publication resumed, with the sixth and final issue scheduled for release on June 17.[59] The Vice President of WildStorm, Hank Kanalz, explained the publication hiatus:
.
The writers of the show want to make sure the comic book is integrated into the mythology of the Fringe world, so we have decided to refocus the direction of the comic book.^ I really want to like this show, and JJ has a pretty flawless track record so far (TV wise), but I'm still not too sure about Fringe.

Mystery

Abrams revealed in an interview that the glyphs in the show had a hidden meaning. ."It's something that we're doing for people who care to figure it out and follow it, but it's not something that a viewer has to consider when they watch the show."^ Consider whether you need to quote at all — unless you are quoting to respond to a specific statement, it's usually easier to just mention who you're responding to.

[61] Abrams also revealed that the seemingly unrelated frogs which have the Greek letter Phi (Φ) imprinted on their back appeared in promos for the show have significance within the context of the series, saying "it's part of the code of the show."[61] The glyph code was cracked by an editor at the technology site Ars Technica, who discovered it to be a simple substitution cypher used to spell out a single thematic word for each episode.[62] Whether there is a further second-order code to be solved remains to be seen.
Additionally, the Glyphs are representative of some of the means by which Walter solves a case (the Moth/Butterfly from "Johari Window", the Seahorse strain of DNA from "Bishop Revival"). In "Jacksonville", behind Walter as he speaks to Olivia about her treatment is the daycare wall where the nootropic Cortexiphan was used as a trial, each of the Glyphs are clearly visible.

Bowman: What weapons do you have? What weapons?!?
Male Flight Attendant: We have a taser in the cockpit which I will use on you if you don't calm down.
Bowman: Taser won't do a thing. It'll just piss me off.

Astrid: It also gave him four extra nipples.
Peter: Maybe he mutated into an opossum.
Walter: No, opossum's have 15 mammaries, unlike most mammals, who have an even number of nipples. Hence, the one half rule regarding nipples.
Astrid: The one half nipple rule?
Peter: You just had to ask, didn't you?
Walter: The typical number of young in the litter is usually equal to half the number nipples on the animal. The number of nipples being the maximum litter size. Humans, for example, one child is the typical. Maximum, twins. Barring extraordinary cases when the young exceed the number of nipples.
.Peter: God, I hope I never have to hear him say the word "nipple" again.^ SS, letting us hear your word is more glorious than God Himself.
