Fall TV Lineup: Tuesday and Wednesday

| 0 Comments | 0 TrackBacks

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

Tuesday:

Fringe
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!

Wednesday:

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.
