Shows You Might Have Missed: Fringe
Each week, we take a look at some of our favourite offbeat shows that might not have made it onto your radar.
An FBI agent, a con-artist and a mad scientist must defy disbelief as they examine unexplained phenomena using some very unconventional methods, in cult classic Fringe.
For FBI agent Olivia Dunham, the world is simple – that is until her partner and lover is sent into a coma by a mysterious chemical used in the case they are investigating.
Desperate to help him, Olivia enlists the help of the brilliant but troubled Peter Bishop and his estranged institutionalised father who introduce her to the weird and wonderful world of fringe science – one in which Olivia finds she has an important role to play.
Starring Anna Torv (Mindhunter), Joshua Jackson (Dawson’s Creek) and John Noble (Lord of the Rings), Fringe blends the sensibilities of shows like The Twilight Zone and The X-Files to create something truly unique.
Created by Hollywood mega-talent JJ Abrams (Lost, Alias, Felicity), Fringe has garnered a cult following and wide acclaim for its gripping stories, excellent performances and carefully constructed mythology.
A crime drama like you’ve never seen before, Fringe will take you on a journey through alternate timelines and parallel universes to arrive at a destination that will have you questioning everything you thought you knew.
