Alcatraz: Five Facts About the New J.J. Abrams Fox Series

6 December 2011 11:51 AM, PST | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

The last time J.J. Abrams and Jorge Garcia worked together, a cultural phenomenon was born in the form of Lost. Now the producer and actor are reuniting on Alcatraz, a mystery-riddled new drama co-starring Sarah Jones, Parminder Nagra, Robert Forster and Sam Neill that is coming to Fox in January 2012.

Before I continue, here's a basic spoiler-free synopsis of Alcatraz: When the infamous prison shuttered its doors on March 21, 1963, it was believed that the prisoners were transferred off the island to other prisons. In reality, the two police officers that showed up to help collect the prisoners that night found Alcatraz to be deserted.

In the present day, one of the prisoners has shown up and hasn't aged a day since his disappearance. The hunt is on to not only catch him, but unravel the mystery behind the mass disappearance of prisoners and guards alike.

Female Law-Enforcement Crushes Tourney Opens With Castle, X-Files, Medium, Warehouse 13 and V

23 November 2011 3:12 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Their stated goal is to uphold the law of the land and put the bad guys behind bars, but every TV fan knows that our favorite small-screen cops, detectives, and agents — as well as their colleagues who semi-officially serve in crime-fighting capacities — have a duty to increase pulses and raise the temperatures of whatever rooms they enter.

We recently wrapped up a 64-player bracket tournament for male law-enforcement types — won by NCIS‘ Tony Dinozzo — and since we’re equal opportunity oglers/romantics, we figured we’d better construct a similar showdown for their female counterparts.

Today, we kick things off with hotties from The X-Files, »

'Fringe' future uncertain, says Warner Bros exec

22 November 2011 6:52 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Warner Bros TV president Peter Roth has claimed that no decision has been made on the future of Fringe. Roth told TV Line that it is "too soon to tell" if the struggling sci-fi drama will continue beyond its current fourth season. Fringe has fallen in the ratings in recent weeks, with the past two episodes hitting a series low in the 18-49 demographic. The series, which stars Anna Torv and Joshua Jackson, also fell below 3m total viewers for the first time ever. However, Roth claimed that overnight audience figures may not be representative, since many Fringe fans record the show for later viewing. "This is a show on Friday nights that audiences love to DVR, and as such we shoot up anywhere from 40% to 63%, when you calculate (more) »

Fringe: Anna Torv Plays Crazy Traffic Cop for CollegeHumor

Fringe: Anna Torv Plays Crazy Traffic Cop for CollegeHumor

Fringe has just settled down for its long winter's nap; the midseason premiere episode "Back to Where You've Never Been" doesn't air until January 13. For those of you keeping tabs at home, that's a month and a half away. That might not seem like very long, but for those of us who want to see just what exactly the Observer is up to, it might as well be centuries.

To help tide us over, CollegeHumor recently featured Anna Torv (Olivia Dunham) in a new video which hit the web on Monday. The video, titled "Can I Give You a Ticket?" features Torv playing a traffic cop who erroneously pulls someone over for speeding - and then begs to give them a ticket to meet her 'quota.' The sketch, written by Saturday Night Live writer Sarah Schneider, is pretty funny. »

TV Review: Fringe 4.7, “Wallflower”

19 November 2011 6:18 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

I was expecting a lot more from the mid-season finale of Fringe. Much more about Peter (Joshua Jackson) and how he is going to get back to his timeline, and more about Walter and how he is dealing with Peter’s return. Instead this episode focuses on the budding relationship between Olivia (Anna Torv) and Lincoln (Seth Gabel), as well as the mysterious role Nina Sharp (Blair Brown) has played in Olivia’s life. Then there’s also the case at hand; a series of murders in which the victims’ bodies turn a ghostly white and the illusive killer is nowhere to be seen. This wasn’t a particularly bad episode, but neither was it relatively good, it really just… was.

While Olivia battles with constant migraines, she and Lincoln must track down a ‘ghost’ killer. They recover a blood sample from the first crime scene, »

Fringe Ep. 4.07, “Wallflower”: Promising episode undone by narrative-necessitated stupidity

18 November 2011 10:03 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Fringe Review, Season 4, Episode 7: “Wallflower”

Written by Matthew Pitts & Justin Doble

Directed by Anthony Hemingway

Airs Fridays at 9pm (Et) on Fox

This week, on Fringe: Lincoln isn’t sleeping, Olivia has migraines, Peter’s having trouble adjusting, and Eugene just wants to be seen

After last week’s excellent episode, “Wallflower” has a lot to live up to, and, frankly, a dip in quality is almost to be expected. Even with that in mind, this week’s episode of Fringe fails to impress, ruining a promising setup and interesting cliffhanger by committing one of the cardinal film and television sins in its third act- plot-necessitated stupidity. There’s nothing wrong with a character being stupid or making foolhardy mistakes, but when a character makes an out of character, stupid decision for no legitimate reason other than that the plot demands it, any attachment to the character or moment goes out the window. »

Fringe Ep. 4.06, “And Those We Left Behind”: Guest stars lift series to season high

12 November 2011 6:58 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Fringe Review, Season 4, Episode 6: “And Those We Left Behind

Written by Robert Chiappetta & Glen Whitman

Directed by Brad Anderson

Airs Fridays at 9pm (Et) on Fox

This week, on Fringe: Walter gains respect for Peter, Olivia is perceptive, and Peter Groundhogs Days it up.

After last week’s less than winning investigation of the new shapeshifters, this week Fringe is back on form with an episode that demonstrates just how great the series can be. Other than the continued underuse of Jasika Nicole as Astrid, “And Those…” fires on all cylinders, providing an intellectually, emotionally, and cinematically satisfying episode that ranks among the series’ best.

The episode opens with a sweet scene, a dream of Peter’s, reminding the audience of just how much he has lost. It’s simply played and brightly lit, contrasting starkly with the dark cell he awakens to. The cinematography here is beautiful, »

TV Review: Fringe 4.6, “And Those We Left Behind”

12 November 2011 5:31 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

J.J. Abrams loves his time travel; time travelling island on Lost, time travelling Romulans in Star Trek, and now, mysterious time loops on Fringe. Surprisingly, given that Fringe is really the perfect theatre to play with time stories, it’s been four seasons and as far as I can remember this is the first case that deals specifically with a time anomaly. Obviously I am talking about the weekly cases, and not the alternate timeline mystery that has served as the main plot since the beginning of this season.

The case involves reports all across Boston of people experiencing all kinds of strange time anomalies, and we’re not just talking about déjà vu. A woman washing dishes in her apartment stops in shock when all of a sudden, most of her kitchen is burnt as if it had just been on fire. Her young daughter, »

Stephen Root Talks Fringe Episode 4.06

Stephen Root discusses his guest-starring role on this week's episode of Fringe

The hit Fox series Fringe returns with Episode 4.06: And Those We Left Behind on Friday, November 11 at 9 Pm Et. This episode not only features guest star Stephen Root, but also his wife, Romy Rosemont. Stephen Root recently held a conference call to discuss his appearance on this new episode. Here's what he had to say below.

What's it like for you to appear on Fringe for the first time with your real-life wife?

Stephen Root: It was a great opportunity to be able to work with her. We have been able to do readings and things like that for films, but never in front of a camera. It was tremendous to be able to work together. I think the first day that we worked, was just the two of us and the director and the crew. »

TV Review: Fringe 4.5, “Novation”

5 November 2011 11:20 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

It’s official. I care very little for baseball. One country in particular seems to love it, so much so that they take out two goddamn weeks of programming just to showcase it. In the land of 500 channels can they really not fit two things in the schedule together? It’s not even that good of a sport. Anyway… before I isolate any more baseball fans, it’s finally time to get stuck back into Fringe and the long awaited return of Peter Bishop (Joshua Jackson). A word of warning, this review is all over those spoilers so read on at your own risk.

The Fringe team brings Peter back to headquarters after he refuses to talk to any one but Walter (John Noble). In classic Walter style, Olivia (Anna Torv) finds him asleep on a dose of sodium thiopental, the first of three drugs commonly administered in lethal injections. »

Video - Fringe Cast Reveal Peter's New Context in "Novation"

25 October 2011 7:41 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

The wait is over Fringe fans, but the question is "What Now?".  True to their words, the Fringe think-tank did not deliver a flavorless 'reset' when the Peter situation was resolved, in fact the return of the boy genius has created more new riddles than solutions for Fringe fans, which is just the way we like it. Earlier today, though, Fox released a video featuring some scenes from upcoming episodes sandwiched between cast members Anna Torv, John Noble, Lance Reddick, Jasika Nicole, and, of course, Joshua Jackson, talking about how Peter fits into yet another pair of Fringe time-lines.  Check out the video below, then we'll chat.

Personally, I love the idea that Peter is regarded as a sort of 'alien' and that Fringe is not falling back into a pattern of 'business as usual.'  This is the type of drama that Fringe has built its brand around;  how »

'Fringe' Anna Torv hints at Olivia, Lincoln romance

24 October 2011 7:27 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Fringe star Anna Torv has suggested that a romance could develop between her character Olivia and Lincoln (Seth Gabel). On the Fox sci-fi drama, Olivia dated Peter Bishop (Joshua Jackson) until the character was erased from time. Discussing the Olivia / Lincoln relationship, Torv told The Insider: "They've started working together kind of closely and she seems quite happy about that! "I don't know what [the writers] will end up doing, but it's kind of sweet if she's got a crush on this Lincoln, and the (more) »
