It's a good show but the girl's acting is pretty terrible. The old man makes up for all of it though.

she's tolerable. i like her better than joshua jackson. i keep thinking emilio estivez or katie holmes are going to sneak around a corner or something. but yeah, the old guy rocks.

She's faking the American accent and once she's mastered it she'll be fine in the role, it's just that right now she's being too emotive in her enunciation.

 

Overall, great show and easily my favourite new show of the season.

the head of the fringe department is always so serious and intense. his and the lead girl's eyes are always watery too when they're bein' intense.

thanks!

hulu.com is also good, but you need to install a thing that gives you an alternate IP so you can watch their shows. good quality, though.

i was getting a bit annoyed with the show, but last night's episode helped redeem it in my mind. until last night, the show had been relying on a simple formula that they rarely faltered from: start off with a weird death, reveal a bit more about "the pattern," the characters' cloudy pasts, solve said weird death by performing an off-the-wall kind of experiment. i enjoyed it, but it started to get a bit tiresome and predictable.

 

thankfully, last night's episode changed that by departing from the usual formula. i understand the role that the formula plays in the show's watchability, particularly from the standpoint of a viewer who is catching the show for the first time, or an irregular viewer, but i was glad to see things get shaken up a bit for people who've been following the entire time.

 

did anyone else catch it?

 

SPOILER (Highlight to View)
i'm glad olivia is starting to catch on to the idea that she can't trust massive dynamic, and maybe not even her boss. if she exposes him and his relationship to massive dynamic and "the pattern" (like i imagine she will, probably at the end of the season) i wonder how she'll continue to "fight" massive dynamic, especially if it is against the gov't, or at least, without the consent of the FBI
.

the opening scene was fantastic (butterflies attacking & falling out the window). i had never heard of the show. when the old dude said "i wish i had a lab", and the chick said "you do", i immediately lost interested and turned it off.

 

 

tv sucks, these days.

pretty sure it was joshua jackson's character who said that, but i can see how you might've made that mistake, haha.

What is with JJ Abram's obsession with planes? I'd never want to be on one with him.

I just finished an unheard of X-files marathon.... all 9 seasons from December 25th until today. I have to say that "the wire" guy is just as badass as skinner.... just give him time, it's only season 1. We didnt get to know skinner as anything more than a "tight ass authority figure" until the end of season 3.

 

THe last episode of Fringe really impressed me. I like the possible direction they're going, and it was kind of a risky move for the series I think, but it will help to define it from the X-files... hopefully it doesnt get nearly as convoluted near the end.
