Fringed out

one of the best ways to help beat monday blues is to come home at the end of a long workday, enjoy a simple dinner and tune in to some of my favourite tv programmes. for quite a while, "desperate housewives" on local mediacorp channel 5 has been a great fix - 10pm every monday night.

after the last episode of season 5 "desperate housewives" ended 2 weeks ago, i thought mondays would now become a little harder to get by, but surprise surprise! as i sat down last monday in front of the tv, thinking i'd just check out the first 5 minutes of the didn't-seem-that-great new tv series "fringe", i got hooked instantly. the first episode (directed by alex graves) was especially brilliant! attention grabbing. i didn't think it would be my type of show but it is, and so much more! this turned out to be quite a unique series, i like the way the story unfolds, the arresting sci-fi action themes, provoking thoughts, incredible ideas, new faces, the suspense, the story plot... i like it all! :)

a friend thinks that "fringe" is somewhat like the former "X-files", do you agree?

"... a new series that will thrill, terrify and explore the blurring line between the possible and the impossible.... The FRINGE pilot is directed by Emmy Award-winning Alex Graves ("The West Wing"), and the series is produced by Warner Bros. Television and Bad Robot Productions. J.J. Abrams ("Lost"), Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Jeff Pinkner and Bryan Burk serve as executive producers." (abstract from

season 2 of the show will be premiering in the US in 1 month's time, but here we're only into the 2nd episode of season 1 tonight. i can't wait to find out what happens next week. definitely one of my favourite must-watch tv series now! so monday nights, reserved :)
