From J.J. Abrams ("Lost"), Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, the team behind "Star Trek," "Mission: Impossible III" and "Alias," comes a new series that will thrill, terrify and explore the blurring line between the possible and the impossible.

When an international flight lands at Boston's Logan Airport with no signs of life, FBI Special Agent OLIVIA DUNHAM (Anna Torv) is called in to investigate as part of an inter-agency task force. After her partner, Special Agent JOHN SCOTT (Mark Valley), is nearly killed during the investigation, a desperate Olivia searches frantically for someone to help, leading her to DR. WALTER BISHOP (John Noble), our generation's Einstein. There's only one catch: he's been institutionalized for the last 17 years, and the only way to question him requires pulling his estranged son PETER (Joshua Jackson) in to help.

When Olivia's investigation leads to multi-billion dollar corporation Massive Dynamic and its manipulative corporate executive, NINA SHARP (Blair Brown), our unlikely trio, along with Department of Homeland Security Agent PHILLIP BROYLES (Lance Reddick) and FBI Agents CHARLIE FRANCIS (Kirk Acevedo) and ASTRID FARNSWORTH (Jasika Nicole), will discover that what happened on Flight 627 is only a small piece of a larger, more shocking truth.

The FRINGE pilot is directed by Emmy Award-winning Alex Graves ("The West Wing"), and the series is produced by Warner Bros. Television and Bad Robot Productions. J.J. Abrams, Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Jeff Pinkner and Bryan Burk serve as executive producers.

I remember watching the first episode last month, I really enjoyed it ( it didnt feel like an x files rip off like most suggested ), not sure how much was edited since then.

This is one of the shows I've been waiting for.... I haven't seen any footage as I have been trying to stay away from it all so I get the full experience tonight. Can't wait.

So far loving it. I really like the text transitions between scene locations. I like the short commercial breaks (watching it live). I like the pacing of the show. A couple of minor plot issues but overall solid story.

They will on Sunday night.



I thought the show was pretty good.

It's in the same realm as X-Files, and I saw a lot of elements from Lost as well - but not that big of a surprise with J.J. Abrams on the team.

"Excellent, lets make some LSD."

Awesome line.

I'll bet dollars to doughnuts that they use the same people that puts together the music in LOST, the score is nearly identical.

OK finished now. Great show. I can't wait to see this play out. The previews of upcoming shows look better than the season premier.

I liked it I suppose. Very sci-fi in its delivery. The only gripe I had was with the dialogue. The writing wasn't the greatest, but I assume it only gets better from here on out. I would also assume that Giacchino would come back to score the show too. Giacchino is very skilled.
