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 Dynamic.
I first started watching this show my freshman year of high school (I have since graduated) and adored it. But sadly I lost interest around the ending of season two and stopped. I few weeks ago I started watching again and was immediately hooked. It's like a sci-fi version of Law & Order how could I not be down for that? Considering I look for shows that tend to have some form of romance in them, I was a little impatient to see where in the romance department this book was heading. It does not disappoint though. Though I haven't finished the show yet, I am currently on Season 3 Episode 4 I highly recommend it to science fiction junkies as well as anyone looking for something to open their minds to the unusual.
|Yes, Walter has a thing for LSD. Its undiscribable really.|
The show contains a scientist who was institutionalized for the death of a lap assistant seventeen years ago, and is checked out by his unwilling son Peter. The show is full of dark humor, most of it surrounding Walter, but bleeding into the other characters as well. Olivia who a bit more on the serious side investigates paranormal and scientific events, most commonly referred to as "Fringe Events" with the help of Walter's son Peter, who after a few episodes isn't so reluctant anymore. The show gets deeper as we are introduced to a parallel universe similar to ours but not entirely, and those versions of our main characters as well.
