J.J. Abrams’ Fringe
Here’s a promo for another new Fox series called Fringe. This one’s from Mr. J.J. Abrams, and if you needed any more proof that he was officially taking over Chris Carter’s job (and fanbase), well, here you go. This show is about a top secret research division of the FBI known as “Fringe Science”. The head of the division was a renegade scientist named Walter Bishop who became so obsessed with his research into strange phenomena that he ended up being institutionalized. Now his son and a female FBI agent must pick up the pieces and attempt to find the connection between unexplained global occurrences and the “Prometheus Corporation”.
Yeah, it all sounds kind of familiar, but so far I’m still on board with this, save for one minor detail: Joshua Jackson. His acting is pretty horrible in this promo… I simply cannot take the guy seriously. Check out the video below and see what you think. Will Fringe be the next X-Files? [filmjunk]
