Fringe Returns Tonight!

In 2009 Fall Season, Fox, Fringe on 09/17/2009 at 3:15 pm

Fringe

With all the hoopla and excitement over the return and premieres of the NBC comedies this evening, we didn’t want you to think we forgot our mind-bending friends at Fringe.  The series returns this evening for it’s second season and we couldn’t be more excited.  What we’re also excited about is this new promotional trailer that’s been buzzing around the internet.  Not only are we excited because it’s about Fringe, but also because it’s a witty idea and those are tough to come by in the realm of TV advertising these days!

Fringe returns for it’s sophomore season tonight, Thursday September 17th at 9pm on Fox.

Thanks to Scifiwire.com, we’ve come across another promotional trailer for the upcoming sophomore season of Fringe on Fox.  While our DVR is more important to us than food or water, it does set us back when it comes to being up to date on the latest trailers.  We eventually do catch up, though, and here’s a pretty great trailer we had yet to see.  We’re guessing many of you haven’t seen it, either:

We’re really looking forward to the sophomore season of spooky mind-bending-ness from Fringe.  What we’re not looking forward to is trying to program Supernatural, Grey’s Anatomy, The Office, 30 Rock and Fringe into our DVR for the same hour each week!  It’s gonna be a tough season.

Along with being the biggest month of the year for both series and season premiere’s for TV, September is also one of the biggest months for TV on DVD releases.  Don’t ask us why.  We think it’s kinda stupid to wait until September as, like we’ve already pointed out, the month is crammed with plenty of stuff to watch on TV AND it doesn’t give people much time to catch up before the next season begins, beyond the fact that it’s a wallet-buster.  It’s a massive month of overload, in our book.

But that doesn’t mean we can’t still be excited!  We’re especially looking forward to Fox’s mind-bending first season of Fringe, the fourth season of The CW’s cult-hit Supernatural (on blu-ray to boot!), Canadian sci-fi lite dramedy Being Erica‘s first season and, of course, the third season of NBC’s comedy giant 30 Rock.

In anticipation of the release of Fringe‘s first season on September 8th, they setup a cool website in which you can enter to win a visit to the show’s set in Vancouver, among other things.  Once you enter  you can watch a video about the difficulties of filming the episode The Ghost Network and then play a game which, if you answer correctly, gives you five extra entries into that set visit contest.  And here’s a little hint for our readers: you may wanna brush up on some episodes of ABC Family’s Greek for some help on the game.  Check out the site: Completethepattern.com

Check em out! Two new posters for the sophomore season of Fox’s sci-fi hit Fringe. Definitely one of DVR Life’s favorite new series last year and another feather in the cap of Mr. Good Sci-Fi, which is a creature we’ve just now created so we can justify all the great sci-fi we’ve been falling in love (Warehouse 13, Torchwood, Being Human, Eureka, etc, etc) with without considering ourselves sci-fi nerds. Did that make any sense?

Fox Premiere Dates For Fall 2009

In 2009 Fall Season, Dollhouse, Fox, Fringe, Glee, Lie To Me, Programming on 06/15/2009 at 2:59 pm

Fox’s Fall 2009 premiere schedule is out as of today. Since they already announced days and time slots during their upfront presentations, there’s really no surprises here, just helpful hints as to when to set your DVR.

As always, I left off reality shows and all times are Eastern Standard/Western. Subtract an hour or two if you’re in Central or Mountain Time.

Many folks are looking forward to the return of Glee. I watched the first few minutes of the pilot but thought it was a bit cliche with sort of bad writing…But perhaps I was just in a bad mood because everyone seemed to love it. I have it saved on my DVR so I’ll give it a second chance. I do have to say, though, that airing the pilot after American Idol this Spring was a pretty ingenius move by Fox – it really built up alot of excitement for their Fall season. I suppose, thought, that if the series had bombed it would have looked like a giant mistake.

I’m looking forward to the return of Fringe and many a sci-fi geek out there is clamoring for the second shot at Dollhouse. I’m also looking forward to Lie To Me, which according to the twitters of the shows producers and writers, seems like it will have an exciting season.

The one thing I did notice was the fact that, of scripted programming, there’s only three new shows for the fall season with most new pilots not making it to the schedule until 2010.

Wed, Sept. 16
9:00 – GLEE

Thurs, Sept. 17
8:00 – BONES
9:00 – FRINGE

Fri, Sept. 18
8:00 – BROTHERS
8:30 – ‘TIL DEATH
9:00 – DOLLHOUSE

Mon, Sept. 21
8:00 – HOUSE (2-Hour Premiere)

Sun, Sept. 27
8:00 – THE SIMPSONS
8:30 – THE CLEVELAND SHOW
9:00 – FAMILY GUY
9:30 – AMERICAN DAD

Mon, Sept. 28
9:00 – LIE TO ME

Fox Renews Fringe

In Fox, Fringe, Programming on 05/04/2009 at 2:33 pm


Fox announced plans for season 2 of Fringe. It comes as no surprise, really, as the JJ Abrams show has gathered a very large and very dedicated fan base and was the number one new series among adults 18-49, the crucial market most shows are shooting for. The order is for full second season.

In 30 Rock, Better Off Ted, Dollhouse, Flashpoint, Fringe, Grey's Anatomy, Lost, My Name Is Earl, Numb3rs, Parks and Recreation, Rescue Me, Smallville, Southland, Supernatural, The Office, The Unusuals on 04/21/2009 at 6:17 pm

Tonight (Tuesday)
Fringe. Finally got caught up from that American Moron debacle and must say the show has come back from hiatus with a vengeance.

The Unusuals. As posted earlier, ABC is running two new episodes of The Unusuals this week, hoping to see if a new time slot and lead-in will bump ratings up. That means there’s some high hopes for this show in the upper echelons of the network.

Rescue Me. The season is off to a funny start, as per usual. With all the build up towards the section 8 hearing, the outcome was a bit flat but…probably more true to life than if anything crazy would have happened.

Wednesday
Lie To Me. Each week brings up another intriguing story. I wonder how long they can keep it up, though. Seems like the stories could get stale after a bit but Tim Roth‘s facial expressions and dead pan, though sometimes squeaky, acting will probably make up for that.

Better Off Ted. I’m not a fan of multicamera sitcoms but I have to admit to much chuckling during this show. Perhaps it’s making fun of corporations that I love so much, but the off and on again romantic story line between Ted and Linda is rather cute and the bickering between Lem and Phil is quite comical. Veronica, though, is just creepy. Those Veridian Dynamics mock commercials are hilarious. ABC should have broadcast those as a mystery campaign before the show aired.

Lost. Very excited to see what Faraday has to say about what’s going on. And where the hell is Sayid?

The Unusuals. It’s a double shot this week.

Thursday.
My Name Is Earl. So sad the ratings for this show have been in declined because it probably creates the most laugh out loud moments of any show on my DVR.

Smallville. Who would have thought this show could last so many years and not get tiresome? Chloe is now in charge of keeping Davis from becoming Dr. Doom. That’s a pretty big job. When she closed the basement door at the end of the last episode…Well let;s just say it was creepy.

Supernatural. This season has been ruling. The addition of the angels has made for some great moments (and great visuals). While I route for Sam and Dean to defeat evil, I take great pleasure in watch Dean wield his power…even if it is evil.

Parks and Recreation. The show has been getting a lot of hype and decent ratings…But I’m not really feeling it. Maybe because it’s just storylines from The Office being reused.

Grey’s Anatomy. When we last left them, Izzie had surgery, Meredeth and Derek were engaged, George was pouting, Alex was hiding his feelings (surprise!) and Owen and Cristina broke up. I’m hoping we start seeing more George lately. I miss him.

The Office. The new story line with the Michael Scott Paper Company has been pretty fantastic. Good job to the writers for freshening things up a bit. This is probably the best season since the second.

30 Rock. They’ve thankfully gotten out of the guest star slump the season started off with and the wit and charm has returned. When watching this show always listen carefully to catch all the great one-liners.

Southland. Episode three airs this week so the blog reviews should start flooding in. I’ll just go ahead and say ‘stunning’. Great new show that I look forward to weekly. Benjamin McKenzie portrayal of rookie officer Ben Sherman has been flawless and, much like Tim Roth but in a very different manner, he makes his facial expressions do most of the work. At times I have trouble watching an actor from a beloved show (The O.C.) take on a new part with out my mind unconciously melding the two characters together, but McKenzie, through sheer talent alone, managed to break that habit this time. I thought last week’s episode was lacking in screen time for him, though.

Friday.
Flashpoint. Those Canadians know how to pack an emotional wallop, don’t they. An upper-middle female aged coworker of mine had this to say about the series: “I love how these big burly men do manly things but are also so sensitive…but manly.”

Dollhouse. The new blogger darling. Too bad 90% of the shows audience is watching it via illegal torrent downloads. Some may say that’s what the network gets for scheduling the show on Friday nights but atleast you can get it at Hulu, people.

Numb3rs. For someone that failed pretty much every math related course offered at my high school, I still find this show pretty intriguing. Without continuing storylines, though, there’s not much to write about.

Saturday.
Kings. Perhaps the move to Saturdays was warrented…I can see where the storylines are getting a bit tedious.

In 24, Breaking Bad, Castle, Cold Case, Cupid, Fringe, House, Medium, Rescue Me, Saving Grace, Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip, The Unit on 04/12/2009 at 7:26 pm

Slim pickings tonight (Sunday), people. As usual, CBS is running behind due to sports (golf, I believe), so adjust your DVR’s as necessary The Unit and Cold Case fans.

I’ve actually given up watching Cold Case due to so many episodes being cutoff because of sports. I try to DVR The Unit and sometimes I remember to fix the end time but usually it’s torrent time! Hopefully now that I no longer work Sunday nights my average will get better.

And don’t forget Breaking Bad. While I love this show, it’s one of the few that I prefer to backup a bit on my DVR and watch a few episodes back to back.

Monday:
House. I’m hoping they don’t waste too much time on House’s murder theory. While last week’s episode was quite fantastic, I thought that was the one weak part.

24. It’s getting really late! Jon Voight was scarily awesome last week as Jonas Hodges and I’m hoping he keeps it up for this episode. I’m also hoping someone finally sees Olivia Taylor as the snake she seems to be. I’m wondering if this week may finally see the return of Kim Bauer, too. Hopefully so.

Medium. Ah, Allison, the love of my life. A little back and forth this week as Allison gets to relive her pregnancy. It was rather disturbing when Marie crept into Allison and Joe‘s bedroom with that gun. Now we get to see pre-Marie.

Castle. Last week we were treated an ice pop druggie that no one bothered looking for and this week we are given a ritualistic killing. Behold the ups and downs of the modern cop drama.

Saving Grace. We’re creeping up on Leon‘s final hours – will Grace have a revelation and step in? I’m wondering how rough the back and forth between Leon and Earl as time reaches the midnight hour.

Tuesday:
Fringe. I still haven’t watched last week’s episode. I had to download the torrent after returning home from work to realize the last 7 or so minutes were cut off by the ultimate in “illiterate programming”. Way to force me into being illegal, Fox.

Rescue Me. Ah, finally. After a really lengthy hiatus, last week’s episode was chock full of back story and a few new surprises. I don’t about anyone else but Chief Feinberg has been creeping me out. Obviously, Tommy‘s gonna keep his job or there wouldn’t be a show but I suspect the upcoming Section 8 hearing will be a laugher. I’m really looking forward to Tommy learning of Black Shawn and his daughters relationship, as well.

Cupid. We’re up to the third episode and I’m digging it. Sarah Paulson is not quite as cute as she was in Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip due to her characters jaded attitude but Bobby Cannavale‘s sweetly determined Eros/Trevor balances her out quite well.

Get them at iTunes.
