Fall TV Lineup: Tuesday and Wednesday

Tuesday and Wednesday aren't particularly packed days for TV, but there is one particularly fascinating new contender on Tuesday from J.J. Abrams...


8pm on Fox

Fringe surrounds the investigations of FBI agent Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv) into paranormal events (think X-Files), many of which are thought to be part of "The Pattern" which are mysterious experiments by an unknown entity. Olivia finds herself working with a motley crew comprised of crazy/formerly institutionalized Dr. Walter Bishop (John Noble), his esetranged son Peter (Joshua Jackson), nondescript Astrid Farnsworth (Jasika Nicole) and enigmatic Phillip Broyles (Lance Reddick).

With Lost's series finale looming in a couple years, J.J. Abrams has started up a new series to keep the massive amounts of cash flowing into his pockets. Honestly, I wish I wasn't such a sucker for JJ Abrams stuff, but here I am, unable to free myself from J.J.'s TV grasp. Between Lost and Heroes, I don't know if I can handle any more ambiguity, mystery, red herrings, and dropped threads, but only time will tell if Fringe is worth watching. If you missed the X-Files, this is sure to be right up your alley.

One last thing: Joshua Jackson?! But... he can't act! Why would you intentionally shoot yourself in the foot like this? He's not even hot. I call that a fumble, Fringe!


Knight Rider
8pm on NBC

I know there's a huge fad of series reboots and all, but Knight Rider? I wasn't sure if I was even going to bother posting on this, but you have to admit a car with autonomous A.I. sounds pretty nerdy. Too bad it's not enough to make me watch.
