A look at the television season thus far (Fringe).

In September, Lee gave us his initial thoughts about Fringe. Here are his thoughts mdiway into the season.

Dr. Walter Bishop is one of the great characters in series television. You can find him in Fringe on Fox Tuesday nights at eight and I wish you would. It’s sort of a darker X-Files, maybe even a little too X-Files but that remains to be seen. Strange things are happening. Someone’s conducting odd and usually lethal experiments on the public at large and the FBI/Homeland Security wants to know what and who. The only one getting them any answers is nut job Walter and his estranged son Peter, both brought in and working with Agent Olivia Dunham.

In keeping with what I have come to think of as the gag factor ala CSI et al, it gets a little barf making at times but they are pretty solid stories and the cast seems to be hitting their stride. They are starting to flesh out the characters (mostly Olivia) mo! re which I always think is to the good.

At this point in the season I still think this one is worth a watch if only for Noble’s Walter.
