I’ve just finished watching the pilot episode of Fringe of Fox. I don’t want to ruin it for anyone who has Tivo’d it or is planning to watch the encore showing on Sunday night, so I’ll just give a quick impression. If I close my eyes real hard I can imagine a world where Fox has kept the X-files on air well beyond the days where T2 Robert Patrick took over for Mulder and into the Season 15 world where Pacey from Dawson Creek and some unknown blonde are saving the world with the help of their lunatic grandfather. I think I remember something about Pacey being brought onto the show sometime in late 2002 during the controversial X-files / Dawson Creek Crossover. Also I’m guessing they defeated the aliens around season 8 because nobody said anything about them. Chris Carter has handed the show reigns over to JJ Abrams of Lost fame. JJ has an expertise in loud violin sounds at the exciting parts and a firm belief that every new series should begin with an airplane disaster.
The show wasn’t bad. I’ll give it a chance. The things I liked about it are: disintegrating people, lady with robot arm, communicating with the dead, resurrecting the dead in future episodes (zombies here we come!!), scientists who know all kinds of occult magic, one good explosion, killing a man with a pillow, Pacey roughing a guy up Dawson creek style, car chase, car flip, and several characters with extremely scary eyes.
