Tag: Fringe (14-26 of 187)
Good news for all Observers! Starting next week, Science Channel will air three full hours of Fringe every Tuesday night. These nights of reruns will begin with a special message from John Noble, who plays brilliant mad scientist Walter Bishop; by 2013, the network will have re-aired the sci-fi series in its entirety.
The great Fringe rewatch begins Nov. 20 at 8 p.m., when the series’ two-hour pilot and first regular episode will play. Science will then air Fringe‘s full first season during daylong marathons on Nov. 23 and Nov. 24. Season 2 starts airing the following week. Even those with piles of Fringe DVDs may want to tune in: the Fringeblock’s commercial breaks will feature episodes of “Science of Fringe,” a short-form series in which real scientists will examine “phenomena such as time travel, dream sharing and parallel universes,” according to a release.

‘Mythbusters’ to do ‘Breaking Bad’-themed episode with Aaron Paul and Vince Gilligan — EXCLUSIVE
The future-flung heroes of Fringe, currently busy saving humanity from folically-challenged time travelers with noodle-baking psychic powers, are about to meet another kind of mentalist — and we’re not talking Patrick Jane or Sherlock Holmes. EW.com has learned that the producers of the soon-to-end Fox drama have cast singer-actress-poet Jill Scott in the role of Simone, described as “an incredibly intuitive woman, an oracle-like person.”
Look for Olivia (Anna Torv) to seek Simone’s assistance during an early season episode… in which the cortexiphan-juiced chosen one will eat a cookie and ponder that timeless truth: There is no spoon. (Oracle. Cookies. Spoon. It’s a Matrix joke, people! C’mon!) READ FULL STORY

It’s October!! Holy muffins. How did that happen?
It’s been a busy couple of weeks on my end. First, there was the Emmys, immediately followed by a series of set visits in Vancouver that sucked the life out of me in the best way possible. Now I’m back in New York, fall is in full swing, new shows are beginning to stick (and others, not so much), and hopefully we’re all enjoying having DVRs full of goodness. I know I am.
So let’s get to it. Remember to be sending me your scoop requests (email@example.com) and follow me on Twitter for witty commentary and TV news. Also, if you’re emailing, take a second to tell me your favorite new show of the fall. This is an informal poll, but I’m really curious what scoop you might be craving in the near future. Time for some dish. Nom. Nom. Nom.
‘FRINGE': FOUR TEASES FROM THE SET
There’s no place as wonderfully warm and weird as the set of Fringe. A few journos and I had the pleasure of visiting the gang in Vancouver last week, and when I wasn’t handing out EWwy awards, I was gathering some fun little intel for fans of the mind-bending cult fave. (If you haven’t read the post-mortem from Friday, head here.) READ FULL STORY
Torture. Emotional family reunions. A bleak picture of the world’s future. Strange foods. Yup, Fringe had all the makings of a classically great season premiere. Of course, there’s a lot more to come.
So when EW hit the set of Fringe earlier this week and got a chance to chat with actors John Noble, Anna Torv, Joshua Jackson, and Jasika Nicole, there was no holding back all the burning questions we were left with after getting an early peek at the episode fans saw tonight. (Note: Jeff Jensen’s full recap is in the works!)
Burning Question No. 1: Will Walter get his memory back after being Observered? READ FULL STORY
'Fringe': Joshua Jackson promises to 'knock your socks off,' plus five tuneful teases about tonight's season premiere
Fringe will bring five years of brainy-bizarre and emotionally engaging storytelling to a close this season with an epic yarn that can be summed up in a word: Observageddon. Joshua Jackson couldn’t be more psyched. “The last great untold story we have is the Observers’ story,” says the actor, who plays the temporally displaced alt-reality orphan Peter Bishop on Fox’s Friday night cult fave. “Just from a geek standpoint, going into the future and telling their tale is super-cool. … There’s going to be some knock-your-socks-off revelations.”
For anyone who read that last paragraph and felt lost… well, where’ve you been the past four years?! (“Sealed in amber” is the only acceptable response.) READ FULL STORY
'Fringe' promo art features Joshua Jackson, Anna Torv and John Noble as rebel icons... or the next great punk rock trio
With the premiere of Fringe’s fifth and final season almost here, Fox is launching a new promotional campaign that sets the tone for the sci-fi saga’s last hurrah. If you’ve been keeping up with the intel coming out of the Fringe camp since Comic-Con and through the Fall TV preview season, then you know that the show’s climactic chapter will take place in the year 2036, when/where The Observers rule the Earth as uppity overlords, and the former agents of Fringe division are freedom fighters questing to sweep away their powdery-skinned time traveling oppressors, perhaps back to the environmentally wrecked far future epoch from which those damn fedora’d fascists hail.
Fox’s key art speaks to that premise, via an image that also slyly symbolizes Fringe itself, a cult fave that could never quite connect with the masses, that got exiled to the rough streets of Friday night and yet survived, that found a dedicated audience and a compelling identity by being as Fringe-y as possible.
Or maybe I read too much into things. You be the judge:
As you should have already heard, the fifth and final (sniff) season of Fringe largely takes place in 2036, a time in which the Observers have taken over.
In this season, which picks up right after “Letters of Transit,” the Fringe team, who have been preserved in amber for 20 years, are part of the resistance movement and fighting for freedom from their pale rulers. And it’s clear in the photo below, which you’re seeing first on EW.com, that they’re not going down without a fight.

True story: The other day, I spent three hours planning my TV schedule for fall. Yes, three hours. And yes, I took into account the fact that I have two DVRs. (Work and home!)
Like any good athlete, I’ve prepared and am ready for battle. THIS IS OUR TIME, fellow couch potatoes. Join me!
And now that we’re all motivated, I invite you to channel that excitement into some questions! Send all burning questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. And if you’ve already submitted one, maybe it made this week’s Spoiler Room column… READ FULL STORY
Fringe fans, avert your eyes from this horrific and heartbreaking sight, courtesy of the newest promo for the show’s final season.

But if you’re up for it, click below:
