Fringe

Anyone else watching the premiere? Only through the first hour and I'm strangely hooked. What does everyone else think so far?

I saw it and I'm strangely hooked as well. I'm still puzzled by that. Subliminal messages? Josh Jackson's character with his father is uncannily funny. The girl is hot, the commercials are short.

It's sort of like House, Lost, Jericho Beach, and all those CSI, cop/fbi/cia shows all in one.

Lost meets Alias.

...Which just means I'm hooked.

Was anyone paying attention to those brief flashes of the leaf, the apple, the frog, butterfly, handprint, etc right before they cut to commercial?

After they showed the apple cut in half a second time, I noticed that the seeds were actually fetuses mirrored to each other. With the frog, there's the Greek letter for phi on its back. Didn't look too closely at the butterfly because I wasn't looking for anything, but after I caught the phi letter, I noticed the fetuses.

CREEPY.

I was pretty hooked as well, loved the way its filmed, especially with the words of the location in 3-D as the camera pans in. I thought Josh Jackson's role was a bit annoying after a while. Looks like an exciting series. Now I'm going out to buy some LSD, later!

I was pretty impressed about it. But for some reason it seems like one of those shows that won't last. But then again Fox shows usually do ok.

Fox JJ Lost Alias

That's a very strong portfolio to fall back on, and come on if there is anything Fox can do well it's entertaining programming

HOOKED!
It was weird because I read in the paper that JJ Abram made this show because he watched an episode of Alias, which he co-wrote some of and he did not understand any of the plot or knew any of the characters because he didn't follow every week. The whole point in this show was to create a show that you WOULDN'T have to watch every week to understand the plot..I can't see how people are suppose to understand the storyline after missing the premiere.. you really had to pay attention to details during the whole episode, even then, I'm confused.

You meant just like CSI or X-file?

What are you talking about? Alias was created by JJ Abrams. I should hope he understood what his own show was about.

CSI/X-Files are/were (cuz CSI's still on tv) not serial TV shows. You could easily watch only one episode of X-Files OR CSI and not have to wonder what the big mystery was behind it, unlike Battlestar Galactica, Alias, Lost, Dexter (to a lesser extent), or any other show that has a major recurring central theme. It's "The Pattern" in Fringe, "The Island" in Lost, and in Alias, it was Rambaldi's secret or whatever.

And the same can be said for the Gov't coverup for Xs and well, killing in CSI.

I just DL the HD version of this show, have been hearing great things about it and a plane full of disappeared people reminds me of The Langoliers, a TV movie that I really like. I will post more after tonight

Easy there, I'm talking about what the PROVINCE said...no need for hostility now

J.J. Abrams didn't have an epiphany exactly, but it was a shock.

Not so long ago, while staying at a friend's house, he happened to catch an episode of Alias on TV -- a show he helped create and write.

I read that province article too, apparently JJ DOESN'T understand what his own show was about, hence taking a different stance at it this time around....

some of the characters introduced were interesting. I accidentally stumbled upon this before IMDBing it, and my first impressions of it was that it was kinda like the xfiles.

Well its by JJ abrams, i doubt they're gona kill it off unless it REALLY gets horrible reviews. But i just caught the re-run now. It was pretty addicting, i cant wait for the new ep on tuesday. Yeah its very X files but contemporized and with a little more kick to it.

Also the handprint before the commercial break has 6 fingers. :O
