Description

J.J. Abrams, the creator of Lost and Alias, teams up with Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman (Mission: Impossible 3, Transformers) to create this highly anticipated drama series. Featuring Australian newcomer Anna Torv, Josh Jackson, John Noble and Lance Reddick, the first electrifying season of Fringe follows an unlikely trio who uncover a deadly mystery that may be part of a larger and more disturbing pattern that lives somewhere between science fiction and reality. As the season begins, FBI Special Agent Olivia Dunham (Torv) is called in to investigate a mysterious outbreak that nearly kills her partner. The only person with any answers is an institutionalized scientist, Dr. Walter Bishop (Noble) who can only be released under the care of his estranged son (Jackson). Together, the three discover that the answer to this mystery is only a small piece of a much larger, more shocking truth. Find the patterns . . . right here, on iTunes!

  • Could be the X-Files for the 2000's.

    It's as if JJ Abrams has been planning Fringe all along, and everything before it was simply preparing the groundwork for this kind of show to be allowed on major network television. Mix the government/international-conspiracy race against time of Alias with the bizarre and supernatural freakshow that is Lost (with a plane crash to boot), and you get Fringe: surprisingly more than the sum of its parts. Hope they know where they're going with this.
  • Great Acting, a spectacular plot, and pilot episode..but what does the future hold for the show?

    Well, I turned on the show, the first scene was automatically compelling to me. I was a fan of 28 weeks later, and this show reminded me alot of how a virus sort of spreads, and it could likely involve animal testing as shown in parts of the episode. The acting was phenomenal, not to mention the plot grips you and tried to pull you in farther. The use of special effects and the block letters stating the location of each scene (which i must say i loved, especially how when the camera panned around the scene, the block letters will still there floating) just make the show sparkle even more. Now the best part about the show was the sound. The music fit perfectly, and the use of Japanese horror sounds made the show eerie and creepy yet mysterious and safe. Think of fingers across a chalkboard sounds, but these sounds are not just thrown around, they were put in at perfect spots (you will understand what i mean when you buy the episode) my only worry is that this show will end up like lost..and leave me lost...I saw the preview for the episodes to come and it seems like they might get off on a tangent of what the shows real purpose is. But it is about alot of stuff we don't know about...invisibility ,re-animation, psychological terms and activities are thrown around alot and mind-reading and linking with the dead all make this show worthwhile. BUY IT
  • X-files + CSI + Heroes = Fringe

    Pretty good stuff if you like the math. There is a mysterious conspiracy overarching plot much like X-Files and Heroes, but lets hope they don't waste too much time on it like those shows do (did). Serial dramas where not much happens and more mysteries develop than get solved are so tedious. It looks like it could be some fairly decent sci-fi/supernatural fun with excellent effects and gore - I hope it lasts!
  • The Truth Is Out There..... Again

    Was afraid that this was all hype & no content - I was pleasantly surprised as to how freakin' cool this show is.... I was hooked after the first 5 minutes. Can't wait to see what JJ has in store for us with season one...... I want to believe.
  • Amazing!

    I saw the pilot at Comic Con this year and it was fantastic. Of course it is JJ Abram's creation so it has to be good! But it definitely is a good show and will definitely catch on with fans of Heroes and Lost type shows.
  • already addictive

    The Fringe series premiere definitely lives up to all the hype. Lightning has struck twice for J.J. Abrams, first with the amazing Lost, and now Fringe is already addictive with just one episode aired. If you were a fan of the X-files, you'll love Fringe. It's like watching an updated X-files in it's hey-day. The premiere keeps you on the edge of your seat from the get-go, and leaves you wanting more with a shocking twist in the final moments.. Watch it! Then watch it again with iTunes!
  • Great beginning What Now?

    This show is innovative and unlike anything on tv right now. Its one of those shows that will keep me dying for next week to come just so I can catch the next episode! JJ Abrams is a genius. I hope Fringe will win many awards!!!
  • Twists, Turns, SO Good!

    By davidjmueller313
    I totally was not expecting the show to be THAT good! Without spoiling much, I'll just say that you never see some of these events coming! This is J.J.'s best show since 'Lost' and 'Alias!' It's kind of like putting the two of them together, and then adding 'The X Files.' I really don't think people will be disappointed with this show, and FOX better keep it on air!
  • This show is amazing.

    Before I watched the show, I watched a pretty negative review about the show, so I wasn't expecting much. But the review was totally wrong. This show is awesome, it is so engaging and interesting. Definitely worth buying. Click yes if you agree.

  • Poor script, laughable production

    By JamesT.Kirk
    Interesting premise, but with a laughable plot and B-movie production style. It's like a modern-day version of the X Files for people with really low IQ.
  • Does Anyone Else Notice This When They Watch?

    By Mark-ster
    The good: The premise of this show is awesome. The Bad: The sequencing of the writing is lazy, thus the characters are forced to do increasingly stupid things just to move the plot from A to B. This is the problem with J.J. Abrams stuff. It is unintelligent and it does not care that it is unintelligent because it is convinced that you are. Does anyone else even notice this stuff or do I live on a planet of nitwits? I do love Anna Torv though. Most beautiful girl in the world. I loved how smart she was at the start of the series. Then the lazy writing dumbed her down and made the show unwatchable for me.
  • Do Not Think, GET IT!

    By Rino The Bouncer
    I’m a huge fan of sci-fi, conspiracy theories, the aliens, mystery, thriller, action and the supernatural/the unknown, in general. And to be quite honest, I was reluctant to get Fringe as I’ve neither watched it on T.V., seen trailers or anything. I was fortunate enough to just take a leap of faith and buy the first season. Since that day, I got hooked to an amazing world full of wonderful scientific/pseudo-scientific phenomena/theories coming to life not to mention the brilliant characters who vary from serious, beautiful, to mysterious, to funny, sexy, fierce, evil and cunning. Each episode presents a new mystery that our heroes will explore and solve, while the main story will evolve as you progress through the season. I advise you not to think about getting it, don’t waste time thinking. Just get all 5 seasons and watch them one after the other. It will be a journey of a lifetime.
  • Not a sci-Fi fan, but wow

    Ordinarily I wouldn't watch a show like this. But one night I couldn't sleep so upon receiving many recommendations I watched the first few episodes. Then I became completely hooked. Now I'm almost finished with season 2 and the show just keeps getting better. I find that I'm staying up really late just so I can watch as many episodes as possible. The acting is very good (which is unlike many sci-Fi genre shows). The premise is fantastic and is acctually rooted in real sciences (believe it or not). And J.J. Abrams pulls out a flawless (or almost flawless but I haven't found flaws) show (unlike Lost which was riddled with flaws and unanswered questions).
  • Fringe season one

    The amazing backstory of fellow CBI agent, Olivia Dunnen flows into the plot of Fringe, weaving into several episodes. The director of Fringe has really outdone itself making it captivating and draws you to following seasons. Review by Lidia Bodamer 12yrs
  • Just horror crap

    Disgusting, boring, and cliche. Worthless.
  • The start of something great

    I was not sure about Fringe at first. Seemed very X-Filesy. Then they embraced the crazy and ran with it. It's pretty great.
  • Pretty darn good for tv sci-fi

    By nocrickets
    We sci-fi junkies put up with a lot of crap from tv, going all the way back to Captain Video and continuing through Battlestar Galactica and Defiance. Sure, Fringe is X-Files: The Next Generation, with some Lost thrown in, and star Anna Torv is the poor man's Cate Blanchett. But still, the ideas, writing and production values are all good for tv sci-fi.

    Best show ever it is so dramatic and scary you should watch it when it's very late and dark.

    I love this show like an old friend. Seeing it again takes me back in time. An Ironic statement considering the subject matter. Do yourself a favor watch it in the dark with someone you love.
