Storyline

The team investigates another phenomena that may be part of the pattern. In this case, a woman who claims not to be pregnant gives birth to full-term child and in the space of four hours, the newborn grows old and dies. Dr. Bishop had conducted some experiments in this field with a colleague that also involved the man's son. Meanwhile, some aspects of the case convince Agent Dunham that it's the work of a serial killer who has been sought by the FBI for many years. To solve the case, she must rely on Nina Sharp to provide the necessary technology. Written by garykmcd

Fringe: se1 ep2 The Same Old Story

There are places in this world where one can pick up a girl by merely making eye contact w/said girl and smirking...don't believe me just watch this episode of Fringe. In any case this episode is riddled with far too much redundant expositionary dialog that seems to exist only for those who did not see the pilot. What we're left with beyond that is a typical serial killer plot w/a "fringe twist". I fear that this could end up being the formula this series will adhere to. Of note in this episode is the wonderful score and (as in the last episode) Anna Torv's performance. Mark Blum made a nice supporting guest appearance as well.
