J.J. Abrams' New Show 'Fringe' Won't Be 'Lost' or in 'X-Files'

September 09, 2008 03:29:53 GMT


An unlikely bond was developed between three individuals who discover unexplained phenomenons and determine to find a slight sense as explanation to them all. FBI agent Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv) and Peter Bishop (Joshua Jackson) must seek the help of Peter's father, the institutionalized scientist Dr. Walter Bishop (John Noble), in solving the science-based mysteries in the new anticipated show "Fringe".

To be premiered on Fox tonight (September 9), "Fringe" is the latest from producer J.J. Abrams (Alias, Lost). Different from his previous productions, Abrams said that this show promises a complex yet still easy-to-follow plot that "Lost" failed to gain after a couple of seasons. For one thing, "Fringe" won't resolve around aliens or cult but rather a series of happenings that has patterns to be solved.

Second Season of 'Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles' Touches the Grey Matter

September 08, 2008 09:45:46 GMT


The brand new second season of "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles", one to watch this week, will open with explosive and full-action sequences packed with CG animation. But as a balance to that, in the weeks to come, it will also pick up episodes that are not as high-octane, taking audience to a journey deeper into the character's mind.

Introducing its sophomore cycle, Fox said that the season will show that "life for the Connors intensifies as their relationships are challenged and the present and the future begin to become one." In line with that executive producer Josh Friedman noted, "There's the people who really come for the action, there's people who really come for the characters, and then there's the large Venn diagram in the middle, which is the people who want both. And I think those are the ones that ultimately, I think, are the most pleased consistently because they'll get one or the other during the week."

He was videotaped, in between performances on the show, trying to "crowdsurf to a camera stand about 100 yards off stage" and when he got there he grabbed one of the female fans and pushed her into the crowd as she tried to hold his hand. He then grabbed the other lady who tried to embrace him from behind and tossed her into the crowd. The footage of the incident has since been all over the web.
