Fringe wasn't on tonight. I think it's on Tuesday or Wednesdays, on FOX.

The site says you can watch episodes. They've already aired the premiere show and last weeks show. It's different, it can be creepy weird. So far it's good. It stars Joshua Jackson..........

Uh oh..I clicked the link...organic creepiness is not my fave. I am way squeamish..right now they have up an image of an apple, split, with humanoid embryos in the seed place.

I don't mind psychological creepiness. Human bodily creepiness ..nope...can't handle.

Dunno Joshua Jackson. I will google.

If they have anything other than human organic matter as the creepiness, please let me know.

***********

OK, I looked up Joshua Jackson, and I think I have not seen anything he is in.

I figure anything somebody here likes is worth checking out, though.
So, Sky, what it is about Fringe that you find appealing?

I am absolutely open to being convinced to give it a try (as long as it is not slimy maggoty things coming out of humans).

LOL! It doesn't dwell on human organic creepiness........briefly but they don't linger on it. More Sci-Fi, experiments, there is a lot going on that hasn't been explained. It might not be the show for you, but it is good.

Joshua Jackson

LOL! I hadn't either, but it seems everyone else has!! I just don't watch that many TV shows.

The show just has a lot of 'unknown' things going on, so it leaves you wanting to know........

Experiments performed years ago, now some of them are going awry. A wonderful 'bumbling' scientist (plays Joshua's father) who is the one that ran the lab so many years ago. A huge conglomerate business called Massive Dynamics that I'm not sure what role it plays or what they are 'into'. Last weeks show was about a woman who was impregnated by a man involved in one of the experiments, and it caused her to have a baby that aged VERY rapidly. A lot of saving the world (ha! kind of) from whatever went on in this lab years ago.

Aw geeze, the pilot has people staring to rot and puking in the first minute.

I can't do it! I WANNA PUKE!

I will try again if there is a non bodily one! The body visuals actually get my body engaged in the same activity I see.

BARF!

I will try episode 2. Now. If it also makes my body react...I'll let you know.

**

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAghghgghghg!

Thing coming alive in woman's belly/uterus!

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

Nope, this one is not for me!

But I do hope that eventually we find some that are.

Heroes has clearly fake body stuff, as well as mostly non body stuff, which is why I can watch it.

Grey's Anatomy season premier is on now here. So far is it really pretty great (half hour to go).

MAN did it suck for a while after being my favorite show ever the first year.

Anybody else watching?

****

Oh so fabulous...until, the very last scene, they bring back Dead Denny and his mouth breathing to represent something that makes no sense to mre an never has about Izzie.

Insofar as Izzie ever chemically was meant to be with anytone it was Alex, though they forced that bit so far I just want them both to go away.

But the rest of the show was great. As usual Cristina's story was the coolest (mostly to do with her acting). The crazy military doctor was a far better fantasy than any of the others. I cheered when they kissed.

I dont watch GA . I already watch CSI and The office at that time. And I sure won't watch anything with Katherine Hiegl.

What did you think of the Heroes? I thought it was very good. I like the new character Daphne. I loved that the episode was about Nathan and Peter. and Mrs. Petrelli is awesomely evil. I think it is cool that she is Shylar's Mom.

I have GA on my dv-r. I am watching Fringe. The doctor is so awesome and I love the relationship between him and Joshua Jackson on the show.

Frazz, many were completely grossed out by the co-pilot's jaw disengaging from his face. Even the TwoP recapper said he couldn't get it out of his head no matter how hard he tried.

Sky, are you bothered by the lead actress at all? I know someone who's kind about everyone, but makes fun of her and some of her expressions. Does she seem a bit wooden to you?

Also saw "The Mentalist" which stars the heavenly Simon Baker! Seems good. Needs a bit of work with the whole "he's so brilliant and everyone just stands around and looks at him in awe" kinda deal.

If anyone wants to catch it, I can give them a rundown of epi 1.

I haven't watched the first episode of Heroes yet either. I have a lot of catching up to do. So many shows started back up, including my beloved "Supernatural".

I lOVE Fringe. It is my favorite new show. I think the cast is fantastic. I really like the lead actress a lot. It is slightly reminiscent of the X-Files for me but more science oriented.

I heard The Mentalist was fun but goodness I cannot add another show to my list . I already watch about 10 and that is with no reality shows.

Hmmmmmm............the lead actress at times seems 'wooden', but I'm not sure if, because of what she's gone through or because of what she doesn't understand, that maybe it's part of the role she's playing. I do know what you mean by 'wooden' though. I love this show and I especially like the father and son..........

I'm also looking forward to the new Timothy Hutton series and Eleventh Hour with my Rufus Sewell.

The father/son dynamic on Fringe is what many have said keeps them coming back.

Walter is just the perfect mad scientist! Joshua is just very nice to look at and plays a great role, but I do wonder if he's real or the result of some experiment.

My last-year's fave, Dirty Sexy Money starts again tonight. I hope it is great.

I tried again with Fringe. Can't do it!

I want to the Rufus Sewell thing, and Simon Bakers thing, but have not.

There's also a Christian Slater show that looks interesting. Good to see him when he's not being arrested for something. I think it's called "My Own Worst Enemy" and he's like a family man and a hitman, but I think the family guy isn't aware of the hitman guy. Hold on...I'm gonna try to find it...
Quote :

“MY OWN WORST ENEMY - Henry Spivey (Christian Slater, “Bobby”) is a middle-class efficiency expert living a humdrum life in the suburbs with a wife, two kids, a dog, and a minivan. Edward Albright is an operative who speaks 13 languages, runs a four-minute mile, and is trained to kill with his teeth. Henry and Edward are polar opposites who share only one thing in common -- the same body. When the carefully constructed wall between them breaks down, Henry and Edward are thrust into unfamiliar territory where each man is dangerously out of his element. “My Own Worst Enemy” explores the duality of a man who is literally pitted against himself. And it raises the question: who can you trust when you can't trust yourself? The series is produced by Universal Media Studios. Jason Smilovic (“Kidnapped”) is the executive producer; David Semel (director of the “American Dreams,” “Heroes” and “Life” pilots) is the director and executive producer.

Frazz, if you want to catch up on "The Mentalist" I believe, because of political debates, it will not be shown for the next two weeks. Only two episodes have aired. I'm curious to find out what you think.

Watch "The Mentalist" online

I am tempted and just might, though it is 11:45 pm...I am addicted to saying up way later than makes any sense at all. I need to wake up at 7:00. If I don't I will soon.

Crap! I didn't realize Eleventh Hour premiered on Friday! I guess I'll have to download or watch online.

Did anyone watch it? Is Fri night on CBS death time? Moonlight was in the same time slot and they didn't do so well...

Hmmmm...I had dvr'd "NUMBERS" and I could swear they kept saying "tonight" and I thought that the promo people must have been asleep at the wheel. Glad to know I was mistaken. YAY!

Confirmed October 9th

I guess I've been sniffing glue again. I've gotta stop that.

Oh, and Aerwin, I will so fight you for him.

Off the wall question:

NBC shows in general (analog, no cable) have audio that is about half the volume of the commercials and local shows also on NBC. The difference is clear. So it isn't my TV. My TV turned up full volume wakes up the neighborhood on everything except primetime shows (I have not tested daytime).

I can't figure out who would be the people to contact about that.

Any clues as to where to start?

I happened on America's Got Talent, Heroes, and now, ER.

It's funny. I was at my mom's yesterday and she wanted me to watch Jay Leno's "Headlines". As you know, Jay is on NBC and I had to crank that puppy WAY up and my mom asked me why it was so low and I explained that every station has their own volume. Like, when she watches "Lifetime" it's REALLY REALLY LOUD.

I think they're still claiming that there is no difference between show volume/commercial volume, etc.

I went looking for answers on the internet

Here's one

Apparently there are now TV's and devices to hook up to a TV to stop the difference between the show and the commercial.

Here's something. I don't know if it works

Dolby is working on something

I believe they keep trying to pass legislation to stop commercials from being so loud. There's already something on the books.

Here's how they get around it

So, this is an age-old problem. The only thing that can happen at this point is a law needs to be passed that they can't make the commercials so loud. Obviously, they need to make it more stringent than the current laws.

Obviously, TV advertisers are a big and vocal group with lots of money to try to shut that down.


In San Francisco, they're trying to pass a bill

I also wanted to add that you can watch most shows online legally

here

OH! I also watched that "cop goes back to 1973" show. It's called "Life on Mars". Good stuff! I had no idea it was originally a UK show.

I'll definitely be watching it. ONE MORE FREAKIN' SHOW to add to the list. The 1973 stuff was great!

"I bought my first Hall and Oates album here...I mean..Led Zeppelin!" AWESOME!

The 8-track and the shitty TV and the rotary phones. Good stuff.

For those who aren't repelled by Televisionwithoutpity, they will be doing recaps.

I haven't watched Eleventh Hour, but will watch it tonight and give my review.

Also, ELI STONE premieres on Tuesday 10/14!
