Cast: Joshua Jackson, John Noble, Anna Torv, Seth Gabel, Lance Reddick, Jasika Nicole Writer: J.R. Orci and Graham Roland Director: David Straiton Network: Fox, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: February 10, 2012 It’s a shame TV-goers don’t know what they’re missing with FRINGE. No show has ever come this close to the creepiness and originality factor of THE X-FILES, while also forging ahead with its own unique storytelling. FRINGE has it all. This season has been about identity and who and what we are. It’s also dealt with the return of Peter (Joshua Jackson) from the nether-world of saving the […]Read On »

TV Review: FRINGE – Season 4 – “Wallflower”

Cast: Joshua Jackson, John Noble, Anna Torv, Seth Gabel, Lance Reddick, Jasika Nicole Writer: Matt Pits & Justin Doble Director: Anthony Hemingway Network: Fox, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: November 18, 2011 FRINGE can get strange, but with “Wallflower,” the series’ season four midseason finale, it gets downright perplexing. It isn’t because it’s bad, but because it ends up telling a rather strange, almost tragic story that dovetails into a major mythology turning point, rather than any big reveal of the week’s mystery. The story begins with an invisible man running around creating havoc and leaving his victims completely white […]Read On »

TV Review: FRINGE – Season 4 – “And Those We Left Behind”

Cast: Joshua Jackson, John Noble, Anna Torv, Seth Gabel, Lance Reddick, Jasika Nicole Writer: Robert Chiappetta & Glen Whitman Director: Brad Anderson Network: Fox, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: November 12, 2011 Outside of FUTURAMA, the FRINGE writing and producing team has to be the most intelligent science geeks the entertainment industry has ever assembled in one room. Put them together, and you could probably rule (or destroy) the world with the scientific theories and fringe science that’s explored on a weekly basis on either series. And in “And Those We Left Behind”, we get a very complicated episode about […]Read On »

Cast: Joshua Jackson, John Noble, Anna Torv, Seth Gabel, Lance Reddick, Jasika Nicole Writer: Jeff Pinkner, J.H. Wyman, Akiva Goldsman Director: Joe Chappelle Network: Fox, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: October 7, 2011 Here’s the problem with a show like FRINGE that continues to break the rules in order to try something different – some genre fans are so savvy they can see the “truth” before the big twists actually arrive which spoils part of the fun to begin with. With “Subject 9”, it’s one of those episodes where genre fans will see the ending coming a mile away – […]Read On »

Stars: Joshua Jackson, John Noble, Anna Torv, Seth Gabel, Lance Reddick, Jasika Nicole Writer: David Fury Director: Miguel Sapochnik Network: Fox, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: October 7, 2011 Even though Peter Bishop (Joshua Jackson) has been wiped from the FRINGE timeline due to events at the end of Season 3, “Alone in the World” continues the Season 4 thread that not all of his presence has been properly eliminated. Walter (John Noble), his father, is starting to see the adult version of Peter pop up in mirrors and reflections in TV screens. He thinks he’s going crazy – and […]Read On »

Wyman & Akiva Goldsman Director: Joe Chappelle Network: Fox, Fridays @ 9 PM Original Telecast: September 23, 2011 Where the heck is Peter Bishop (Joshua Jackson)? Most of the characters aren’t wondering about this, as – since the end of last season – he never existed in either universe. At the outset of the season four premiere of FRINGE, “Neither Here Nor There,”  “our” Observer (Michael Cerveris), though, […]Read On »

With FRINGE heading into Season 4, ASSIGNMENT X recently spoke with executive producer J.H. Wyman about what to expect with the series return (it premieres tonight on Fox). Thankfully, he doesn’t offer any huge spoilers, but hinted at the direction the series will be going in with the absence of now non-existent Peter (Joshua Jackson) weighing heavily on Walter (John Noble) and Olivia (Anna Torv) as they continue to explore Fringe science (both Over Here and Over There). Here’s what he had to say. ASSIGNMENT X: It’s a given that Peter will be back, correct? J.H. WYMAN: You’re going to […]Read On »
