After a car accident takes the life of a family member, a police detective lives two alternating parallel lives, one with his wife and one with his son. Is one of his “realities” merely a dream?
Each reality has a color scheme in relation to Michael’s wife and son’s favorite colors. When he is on Hannah’s side, the color scheme consists of warmer colors, mainly red. While on Rex’s cooler colors, mainly green, are seen.
Note: They scheduled this new show on Thursday night at 9 o’clock just like “where and when” the other networks put their best shows.
Another Note: Thursday night at nine was the prime time for this season’s television shows. So, now I think they’re going to cancel Awake, because the network really didn’t give it half a chance to make it. Thanks a lot.
The FBI teams up with a formerly-institutionalized scientist – who was performing experiments on the fringe of real science – and his son to investigate weird crimes that are seemingly part of a larger pattern, and may be connected with a global company called Massive Dynamics.

A little trivia about Fringe that you may not know.
In September 2008, Joshua Jackson had to be rushed to a hospital when during a stunt a copper wire was shoved up his nose and hit a vein.
For the first season, each episode of ‘Fringe’ ran from about 49 to 51 minutes in length. This is in contrast to the typical 42-43 minute length of a one hour drama. This was an experiment by Fox to see if viewers are more likely to tune in if there are fewer commercials. [I remember that. They’d say “back in 30 seconds” or something.]
Throughout the first season, ‘The Observer’ could be spotted on other FOX programmingsuch as in the audience of American Idol, or on the sidelines of NFL and NASCAR events.
In season one the Fringe team has several encounters with a man named David Robert Jones. In the second season they fight a visitor from the alternate universe named Thomas Jerome Newton. “David Robert Jones” is the real name of the singer/actor David Bowie and “Thomas Jerome Newton” is the name of the character he plays in the movie “The Man Who Fell to Earth”.
Unlike other actors who’ve gone bald for their characters (such as ‘Michael Rosenbaum’_’s decision to shave his head to play Lex Luthor in Smallville) Michael Cerveris, who plays “The Observer,” was already shaved bald before being cast. He first shaved his head completely in 1993 while playing Tommy in the Broadway musical “The Who’s Tommy,” because he wore a wig in that show and found it more comfortable to put the wig over a shaved head. However, Cerveris does actually have eyebrows; theFringe makeup artists only make it appear that he does not.

Fringe, of course, has a parallel universe. Once Upon A Time has a parallel universe or at least separate storyline world.
We can’t forget the new show Awake, where the main character exists in a separate reality every day when he wakes up.
It resembles parallel universes.
Maybe that’s a theme this year. I like it! It’s definitely something different for a change.
“You are being watched. The government has a secret system: a machine that spies on you every hour of every day. I know because I built it. I designed the machine to detect acts of terror, but it sees everything. Violent crimes involving ordinary people, people like you. Crimes the government considered irrelevant. They wouldn’t act, so I decided I would. But I needed a partner, someone with the skills to intervene. Hunted by the authorities, we work in secret. You’ll never find us, but victim or perpetrator, if your number’s up…we’ll find you.”
Opening voice-over by Mr. Finch
John Reese (Jim Caviezel), a former Green Beret and CIA field officer, is living as a derelict in New York City after an unspecified incident, and is presumed dead. He is approached by Harold Finch (Michael Emerson), a reclusive billionaire computer genius who is living under an assumed identity. Finch explains that after 9/11, he built a computer system for the government which uses information gleaned from omnipresent surveillance to predict future terrorist attacks.
Finch discovers that the computer was predicting ordinary crimes as well. While the government was not interested in these results, Finch is determined to find a way to stop the predicted crimes. He hires Reese to conduct surveillance and intervene as needed, using his repertoire of skills gained in the military and CIA.
Through a back door which Finch had built into the system, Finch receives a social security number for someone who will be involved in an imminent crime, at which time he contacts Reese. Without knowing what the crime will be, when it will occur, or even if the person they’re after is a victim or perpetrator, Reese and Finch must try to stop the crime from occurring.
I mention The Client List, because it raises a conflict for me. I’ve watched a couple episodes, and it is an interesting show. It keeps your attention.
But personally, I can’t bring myself to keep watching it.
If I do, my mind will be getting used to the idea that being a prostitute is a normal, everyday lifestyle.
Sorry, I just don’t want to go there.
