Why Aren't You Watching Fringe?

Wikipedia's description:

Fringe follows the exploits of FBI Special Agent Olivia Dunham, scientist Walter Bishop, and his son Peter as they investigate aspects of fringe science (telepathy, levitation, invisibility, reanimation, etc). All over the world, a series of apparent experiments collectively referred to as "the Pattern" (e.g., a newborn baby who became 80 years old in a few hours and dies, etc.) are occurring for reasons unknown. Olivia, Peter, and Walter are in charge of investigating these strange events to determine their source. Connected to the Pattern is a company called Massive Dynamic, which is a leading global research company that holds the patents for a number of new and important technologies.

Fringe is great. My new must watch show. The crazy science on the show is always off the wall and mostly original. Walter Bishop is hilarious. He's been locked away in an asylum for years so you don't know if he's quite all there. Everytime his son says that's impossible he turns around and reveals that it is quite possible. Great stuff.

You can watch early episodes on

Fringe airs Tuesdays at 9 on Fox.

I do not watch because I have no TV.

Also, wasn't this show on about ten years ago, when it was called "The X-Files"? Heh.

Actually it may seem like an X-Files clone but its not. Most of the experiments or the pattern that they are investigating are things Walter created decades ago with his mysterious partner. Walter's memories are a bit wonky so he doesn't always recall that he created right away. The mystery is who is releasing the experiments. Is it his former partner and founder of Massive Dynamics? Hmmm...
