Fringe 2nd Season premier teaser

We interrupt our regularly scheduled blog posting to share the following video with you. IT DOES SPOIL THE SHOW so if you don’t want to know what happens in the 2nd season premier, DO NOT WATCH IT.

Fringe stars Joshua Jackson, John Noble, Anna Torv, and Lance Reddick. Fringe airs on Fox Broadcasting each Thursday at 9:00 PM Eastern Time (and Pacific).

Fringe fall season about to start

Fringe made the colver of EW as we get ready for the second season. The article quotes Joshua Jackson (Peter Bishop on the show) as saying: “I hope they don’t put us (Peter and Olivia, played by Anna Torv) together. That would be so conventional. What’s interesting about this show is that in many ways, Olivia has the masculine role, and the two guys are the women. She carries the gun, they sit around and talk. I think that’s pretty cool.”

Hm. I wonder if those words will come back to haunt him. Years down the road, things you say and do that seem cool at the time have a way of making you look dated and wussy. I laughed pretty hard when reading that AOL retrospective on the 111 wussiest songs of all time. Yeah, I liked a lot of them and, yeah, they are pretty wussy.

You have to remember the future before it happens when you’re in the entertainment business, or so it seems to me.

Anyway, Anna Torv looks pretty hot on that cover — completely out of character for agent Olivia Dunham, who is supposed to be a no-nonsense Federal agent (not that they cannot look sexy — it’s just not the image of the character they built up in the first season).

The accompanying video covers the cover shoot (can I say that? Well, I did).

Fringe’s season second hits the airwaves on Thursday, September 17, 2009. Please join us in our Fringe Forum Discussion at SF-Fandom.

Here is a little teaser from Fox Broadcasting:

TV Guide talks with J.J. Abrams and Joshua Jackson about Fringe

I cannot embed these videos so I can only provide you with links to the TV Guide Web site.

First, Joshua Jackson talks about the second half of the first season. He has a little upcoming reunion (on Fringe with a Dawson’s Creek co-star).

Next, J.J. Abrams promises answers to questions about Fringe in the second half of the season (echoing what Jackson said in his interview).

Dr. William Bell will not appear in the next four episodes but Abrams says we will meet him. Abrams also remains “mum” on Peter Bishop’s origin. And there are a couple of questions about the Star Trek movie and Lost.

Fringe fans, get ready for “Bound”

Fringe returns to first-run episodes tonight (Tuesday, January 20) with a new episode called “Bound”. Here are a couple of videos I found online.

I have really enjoyed this show. John Noble, who plays the half-crazed but brilliant scientist Walter Bishop (the expert in “fringe science”, from which the show derives its name), steals just about every scene he is in. The other actors are very good, but he outshines the entire ensemble.

This first video focuses on Joshua Jackson (Peter Bishop) and Anna Torv (Agent Olivia Dunham) for the most part.

This video is a clip from a late night show where they set up a great line from John Noble after an exchange between Joshua Jackson and Anna Torv.
