After a plane from Hamburg returns with no survivors, FBI agent Olivia Dunham goes after the only person that might shed some light on the incident - a scientist that has been in a mental hospital for the last 17 years.
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

The German spoken by the passengers and crew of the airplane in the beginning is sometimes grammatically incorrect, sometimes nonsensical, and often tinted with a heavy American accent. See more »

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.
