I love Fringe. Together with Charmed, it's the only series I've watched every episode of. There are episodes of Star Trek: TNG and TOS which I missed, but not from the other two.

Maybe it has to do with the fact that I'm a sucker for alternate realities and convoluted plots. Fringe has plenty of that, plus strong ensemble playing by a capable cast, headed by Anna Torv, Joshua Jackson and John Noble.

They draw you into the storyline. I especially love the way John Noble plays Walter Bishop. He imbues the good doctor with a mix of lovable and exasperating qualities.

And the plot? It's filled with so many twists and turns you need to really pay attention. I must confess that even with that, Nina's behavior puzzles me, not to mention that of the inscrutable Observers.

The ideas they present soar in the best sci-fi sense, evoking a sense of wonder that lingers long after the show has ended. They make you think and play with the quintessential issue that underlies the best sci-fi. What if?

This video which I found on youtube has great scenes from the show.
Warning: The video contains spoilers for the later seasons and disturbing images.
