Review: Fringe

Olivia Dunham, an FBI agent teams up with a former scientist and also with his son, to try and solve crimes and seemingly strange events. After being locked up for years in a hospice, Walter Bishop’s scientific background and personal history are put to use in trying to solve strange events and crimes. The series alludes to the dominant corporations of the XXI century society, well represented here by the World Dynamics.

Olivia Dunham has a troubled past that includes an abusive alcoholic father. Olivia perfectly fits in the role of FBI field agent, this job exhausting all her time and thereby sparing her from the real problems of everyday life. She develops an affair with a colleague, John Scott, with whom she secretly meets in cheap motel rooms but with whom she also has big plans for the future.

Walter Bishop is a crazy and eccentric scientist and researcher, specialized in extreme science (fringe science). After spending 17 years in a psychiatric hospital, with final and irrevocable consequences on his personality, Walter is finally recruited by the FBI and will join Olivia and his own son, Peter Bishop.

Up to this point, Peter Bishop led a nomadic life, frequently changing jobs and homes, taking part in controversial business, in other words, he was a genuine rebel.

Phillip Broyles is a special agent in charge of national security, leader of the Fringe Division, a team that brings together the agents of various organizations to identify, investigate and try to solve the growing number of 'scientific' crimes in the recent years.

Charlie Francis is an FBI agent and close confident of Olivia. Charlie is one of the agents called to work together with the future Fringe team members and John Scott on the 627 flight incident. The 627 flight incident is the one that opens the series of Fringe events.

Astrid Farnsworth is also an FBI agent and Olivia's assistance, and she proves indispensable to the Fringe team.

Nina Sharp is CEO of Massive Dynamics and one of the strong connections Walter bishop still has with his past. John Scott is a special FBI agent but with questionable connections in the world that the Fringe team investigates.

Verdict:
It is amazing how Fringe manages to come up with new twists considering it is a rather long series. The action and the plot twists in this series are sure to please all fans of the Sci-Fi genre.
