J.J. Abrams' new show Fringe premiered tonight on Fox. Overall, it was pretty good, although I could have done without yet another pro-torture message from a Fox show. There's a website for Massive Dynamic, the mysterious corporation mentioned in the show. The website includes several email addresses, a contact form, and a phone number. If you call the contact number, 1-877-867-7396, you'll be told that all representatives are busy. You can leave a message and are promised that they'll get back to you. Another website possibly linked to the show is Glowing Monkeys, which is a blog focusing on real world, "fringe science." The best fansite I've found so far is, where I found the screencap posted above. Anyone else enjoy the show?

Oh and I thought it was pretty good for a first episode. It really did feel kinda like "JJ Abrahms sings the Chris Carter's greatest hits". I'll give it another episode though, for sure.

What's wrong with pro-torture messages?

Almost every other show there is has pro-abortion messages, pro-divorce messages, pro-adultery messages, pro-teen sex messages, pro-multiple sex partner messages, pro-me me me me messages, pro-church hating messages, pro-atheist messages... The list goes on.

Are you offended by all those other messages too?

God, I'm so glad some people didn't like this, because I was starting to feel alone. Just because J.J. Abrams' name is attached to something doesn't automatically make it gold.

Too many cliches, horrible acting especially by the guy who played the imprisoned mad scientist (his asking for ginger ale was supposed to be quirky and funny, but it just seemed forced), and the plot wasn't intriguing. I do like the idea of fringe science, and the only part that interested me was when Matthew Abbadon tried recruiting the Olivia character by showing her some strange cases, and that is partly the only reason I'll be tuning in next week.

Nope, you're not the only one, PJ.
Horrible writing and acting.
Consider yourself lucky that you missed the ending.
After all that effort to save her partner... he turns out to be the bad guy!
Did M. Night Shyamalan have a hand in this?
