Storyline

When a commercial flight from Germany lands at Boston's Logan Airport without a single passenger or crew member on board alive, FBI agent Olivia Dunham is assigned to the investigative team. When her partner and lover John Scott suffers severe chemical burns, she seeks help from Dr. Walter Bishop a one-time university professor who experimented in the same field but has now been institutionalized for 17 years. To get his cooperation however, she has to get Bishop's son Peter's cooperation as well. The information they gather leads to Massive Dynamic, a huge multinational founded by someone who once shared laboratory space with Dr. Bishop. Agent Dunham also learns that what happened may have been part of a much larger pattern of strange phenomena. Written by garykmcd

When Peter is speaking to the two Iraqi men regarding the pipeline, after stating that he speaks Farsi, the shot of the two men ceasing their conversation and shifting in their seats is obviously the previous shot of them beginning their conversation, except reverse frame order. See more »

Creepy, but in a Good Sort of Way
11 April 2012 | by CardrakSee all my reviews

I don't watch many shows like this, but my sister recommended it. I do like the paranormal a bit. This, however, is a bit too much on the horror side for me.

I love the use of John Noble as Walter Bishop. I can see him developing in this role. The female protagonist is OK. I don't like Peter Bishop, and I don't know if that's the actor or the role he plays.

Why is the woman called "honey" and "sweetheart" so often? Do men still do that when they mean to be insulting? I thought that was maybe over.

I usually give myself another episode or two to decide about watching a series, but this may be the first and last one I watch. I would recommend it to those who like cop shows, paranormal, and horror. All together.
