All hail the Observers!
Fringe takes a trip into the future in Friday's episode (9/8c, Fox). Lest we forget, it's Episode 19 for the season, which traditionally means it will be chock-full of craziness (See: Last season's switch from live-action to animation in "Lysergic Acid Diethylmide").
Fringe: Meet Henry Ian Cusick's secret agent partner
In "Letters of Transit," the future is not all it's cracked up to be since the Observers have officially taken over planet Earth, wiping out most of the human population. Similar to last season's finale, which ventured 15 years into the present, Friday's hour-long thrill ride will offer up a chance to see what life could be like if humans were at the bottom of the food chain, so to speak. To get acquainted with this version of the future, here are five things to expect:
The question of whether Peter does indeed need to find his way home — or, as some theories have suggested, he's already there — will finally be answered in this week's episode of Fringe.
With eight episodes remaining before the season finale — and hopefully not the series finale — what will Peter's journey now look like? TVGuide.com turned to executive producer Jeff Pinkner and J.H. Wyman to get the scoop. Plus: The "X" man returns!
So much coming and going in the volatile, fragile world of fantasy/horror TV. Once again, we're bidding adieu to Fox's freaky Fringe (Friday, 9/8c) for a month.
Olivia has been kidnapped. Peter still hasn't found a way home. And David Robert Jones is running amok in both universes.
These are just a few of the problems the Fringe crew faces in this week's new episode, "The End of All Things" — which also happens to be the final episode for nearly a month. As Peter (Joshua Jackson) attempts to recover his lost love — new timeline Olivia (Anna Torv), to be clear — he'll come face-to-face with the man who once saved his life: the mysterious Observer known as September (Michael Cerveris), who will offer up a wealth of answers as to who the Observers truly are. Here are five teases from Friday's episode to whet your appetite:
CBS' Person of Interest (9/8c) is one of the fall's few new dramas of interest, and it appears to be a keeper. Though not without some formula aspects — this is CBS, after all, so things tend to get wrapped up pretty neatly by the hour's end — the intriguing Interest sends its damaged heroes on their high-tech vigilante missions under a tantalizing cloak of paranoid secrecy. Each week, there's also the promise of heightened and stylized mayhem at the hands of the coolly lethal Reese (Jim Caviezel), who's so unflappably taciturn in his explosive takedowns of rooms full of bad guys he can make Jack Bauer look like a blabbermouth wimp.
