Thought it was surprisingly good. I'll tune in next week to see if it sticks. FYI, in case you didn't see it, there is an encore showing of the pilot on Sunday night on Fox (not sure what time). It seems to be a Sci-Fi series (which I usually don't really get into), sort of an X-Files meets Alias. JJ Abrams, the "Lost" guy, is running shop on this.

The character development was fairly deep for a show of this flavor. The cast has something for all-comers: Colonel Daniels from The Wire (and cameos in Lost), Pacey from Dawson's Creek, and Denethor from LOTR.

Somewhat graphic, so don't make the mistake of eating during the show like I did.

Yeah I was diving into a fresh plate of ribs during the first 15 minutes...not good.

Just finished watching--I am solidly IN on this show so far.

Although one MAJOR nitpick--why didn't Olivia instantly think about hooking up the dude as soon as he died so that she could find out who he was working for?


Oh, and

Agree on the Olivia > Kate HSO. She reminds me of Poppy Montgomery.

I thought the same thing, U2 Horn... She should have hooked him up!

Definitely IN on the show so far.

What channel?

If it is anything like the xfiles, I'm sure that I will love it.

Terrific new show...very similar to the X-Files series. Taped last night's episode, the third...will watch it today. Some creepy stuff...the guy in the second episode operating on the young ladies! Some interesting humor in that one as well...after the team had deciphered what the patient was saying in a foreign language, the older scientist was checking his instrumentation and made the comment to his patient, "Oh my gosh, I believe with proper demodulation, you could receive satellite television for free!" Good chemistry between the son and his scientist dad.

Last night was the 4th episode. I didn't see it, but my sister's best friend was on last night's episode in the first ten minutes or so I think I haven't seen it yet.

I don't know. She was raped by her roommate's boyfriend who suffered from a disease they called "Sexomnia" in an episode of Law & Order: SVU though.

Good choice of words, "surprisingly good!" I felt the same way after the pilot. And, terrific cast...good chemistry! Looking forward to the entire season. I set my recorder to tape tuesday's episode about the capsule and taped "House" by mistake...dang!!!

Just watched the beginning of the episode, and yes, my sister's friend is the waitress in the diner. She's come a long way since being raped on SVU.

To ALL...I'm hooked as well...terrific new series. Anyone watch Fringe last week...started with the butterflies...I have a question?

If you recall the first episode, the female lead went into a tank of water with electrodes on her nude body so the scientist could connect her brain, so-to-speak, with the other FBI agent John, her lover, who was in a coma to attempt to learn the identity of the "bomber"...in any case, in last week's episode she has to go back into the tank. She has a towel around her and as she removes the towel and steps into the tank, the scientist says, "Uh, oh, I got an erection! Oh, nothing to do with your state of undress...just because I need to urinate."

My wife was also watching and I looked at her and asked, why would the writer put that unusual comment into the script? It made no sense to me and added nothing to the scene, in my opinion. My wife's take was that his comment just showed how "strange" or "off the wall" the scientist character is. Anyone else see it and have an opinion on his comment?

Random thought, but this season f'ing rocks.......which is a relief, 'caus those second seasons can often be very disappointing for new shows, but not for Fringe luckily.

I don't think I made it that far. But I didn't give up, so much as I forgot to DVR two episodes in a row and didn't expend the energy to catch up..Jamie, would I be totally lost if I tried to jump back in now? The last thing I remember was the introduction of some tall guy in a trench coat that was eating peppers on everything.

Still loving this show.....this season has been greatness.

Speaking of greatness.....anyone who's ever wondered what Anna Torv might look like if she was taking a dump in the woods.....and let's face it, who hasn't......here you go:
