What do you get when you take out the science fiction from "fringe"
Sam Neill has been awful tonight.
Agreed on Jorge Garcia. He is always a very fun presence. Sarah Jones gets a nod for her amazing rack as well.
ok, sam neil just had a moment of badass....
Yeah that was good. I don't think Sam has been too bad...better in the second ep.
Is every ep going to end this way?
He channeled his inner Jack Bauer.
and a twist...
OMG! She's an immortal!
I voted Good for both eps.
Well this was fun guys. I think I'll give it another shot next week. I'm intrigued enough to want to see what comes next.
Ditto that. Not bad, not bad.
See some of you guys for Fringe on Friday.
That was pretty awesome. And keeping him alive in a soon to be busy prison is a better punishment than killing him.
I voted Good as well. It's an interesting premise and it could be a fun series.
While I would not say either was excellent, I thought both episodes were good. I'll be watching this. I was entertained.
Until the power cut out locally six minutes to the end.
Fringe with a national park!
Intelligent, pretty (but not super model attractive) female law enforcement agent
Civilian partner who is smarter than he looks
female tech expert
gruff authority figure
Mystery that really isn't as intriguing as they want us to think
Mildly watchable...but, Terra Nova is, too. The prison of Alcatraz holds no real mystique for me, that they keep dusting it off for pop culture fiction just makes it seem all the more decayed.
Not bad is my judgement. Though I wonder how much legs the premise has in "how many prisoners can we watch get put away before it gets boring."
I liked it. Anybody remember an old show called "Time Trax", cop from the future hunts criminals from the future. This one is cops from the present hunt criminals from the past.
I was just glad to see that the first prisoner we see isn't the first one that came back - apparently its been happenin' for a bit.
The first hour was "Average", but the second hour was better, so I gave it a "Good."
May tune in to a few more episodes, see how things go...
I wonder if "Emerson" is named after Michael Emerson aka benjamin Linus from "Lost"
Blah, didn't hold my interest for long. To many JJ mainstays like sound effects and time jumping. Hurley was the best part, and he didn't do much. I liked the nerdy sniper guy at first, but he became boring as hell once his plain cheeseburger serial killer motives were revealed.
I give the show a month.
