It’s fitting that this show will premiere on Fox, since this was the network of the X-Files. Fringe has got much in common with the X-Files, yet it is different. Fringe is the latest show of wunderkind J.J. Abrams. Like most new shows, the pilot was leaked on the internet a few weeks ago.

Just like a few other shows, like True Blood, I’m happily surprised by Fringe. The production values are great and I’m enjoying it a lot. A lot of money has been pumped into this show, and it just looks fabulous. The protagonists are also an interesting bunch. There isn’t much more that we learn of the Pattern, but Massive Dynamics is most definitely deeply connected with those events, even though they aren’t sharing their information with Agent Dunham.

I think that this show takes a few common elements from Alias, especially for all the things that concerned the mystic scholar Milo Rambaldi. The same kind of esoteric science is involved in this show. It’s done very well. I’d actually like to see this type of mystic science have more of an impact on the show. It would suit the show very well. A bit of the supernatural wouldn’t be bad either.

Climbing Out A Storytree

A few weeks ago, I had to climb out a 4th floor window…

I’ve been debating whether to blog about this. In the end, I think it makes a good story.

One morning, I went out at around 8AM to walk my dog. I’m timed in the mornings. It’s so that no time is wasted. I’ve noticed that it’s extremely easy to waste time in the morning when you’re not really awake. When I came back, I noticed that I only had part of my keychain. The other part was in my apartment. In my haste, I had forgotten to clip my house keys onto my scooter keys, so I couldn’t get back in.
