j.j. abrams’ new show: “fringe”

Or as I like to think of it: Denethor & Pacey Go All X-Files On Your Ass. Along with some random chick I hope will eventually grow on me, and that scary guy from The Wire.

Hilariously, I didn’t even realize what I knew John Noble from (the Grizzly Adams beard he sports in his opening scene didn’t help) until he croaked the phrase “my son” in that trademark stentorian voice. You may remember him repeating those words approximately 957 times in Return of the King.

So yeah, the comparisons with The X-Files are probably inevitable (there was a little bit of The Cell in there, too), but the pilot didn’t suck. Plus, you know, J.J. Abrams. I’d watch it again. Although since it’s Fox, we can probably count on them pulling the plug just as we’re really getting into it.

    I definately like The Cell similarities. I hope that machine is used often in the show. I can imagine that it will, since it seems like the bad guys have the same contraption.
