Okay, so the new season of Fringe started this week.  This is probably one of the greatest shows on tv right now, next to 24, House, The Kings, and of course, The Simpsons.  Hence, this is the second time I am actually taking the time to blog about Fringe. 

I think JJ Abrams really found a perfect show for him to let his imagination loose and not be criticized for it.   I think the main reason why he was losing so many audience with his other show LOST, might’ve been the fact that the “unexplained” was explained by something sooooo ridiculous that the rest of the show and the plot became a suspect.   But don’t you worry, I believe they still have THREE more seasons to come up with more crazy story lines and twists.  Seriously, the only good thing about LOST these days, is my friend’s blog about the things that are lost on the LOST and some things that are lost in real life as well.  Pretty entertaining!

Well with Fringe, JJ Abrams, can be as far-fetched as he wants to be.  The entire show is based on the paranormals, the unexplained, the government/big corporation conspiracies, and the irrationals of the world as we know it.   Fringe has covered array of sci-fi topics, such as, the possible existence of aliens, teleportation, humans having super natural powers, bio-weapons that can close all the orifices of a person, and so much more.   Every show I am totally engrossed in the lives of the characters and can’t wait to see how they will develop these intricately layered plots.  Agent Olivia Dunham is one of the best actresses on tv right now IMO, and Walter, is probably one of the most entertaining characters.  I mean they have a freaking cow named GENE on this show (very clever I might add).  Seriously, is it possible to NOT like a show with a cow??????

Here are some of images that are flashed when they go into the commercial breaks.  I even LOVE these!!!

i love march. not because it’s st. patrick’s month (day, whatev). but because of march madness. if you don’t know what that is, it’s basically a college basketball single elimination tournament. the best 64 teams compete for the championship. and it’s not necessarily the best team that wins, but the best team that day/night. of all sports, it’s probably one of my favorite things to watch (probably aside from football). it’s always exciting; a lot of upsets, cinderella stories, buzzer beaters, etc. etc. etc. 

but i slacked this year. too busy to keep up with watching all these games. but i entered my work’s bracket pool anyway. clearly, i have no idea who 75% of the teams are. at that point, it’s all gut instinct. sometimes i just like the name of the team or they play in a state that i recall a story or movie from or i feel like they have heart (although i have no idea who they are). just anything. now the best part is picking the upsets. picking the team that nobody expects to win. it’s pure bragging rights (and more points). now majority of the time, i’m wrong. but it’s those 2 or 3 i pick correctly that give me such satisfaction. 

so i entered and guesssss whoooo wonnnnnn. no, not that guy. ok ok. who has two thumbs and won the 2009 march madness pool? ahh ahh? i’ll give you a hint. i have two thumbs. =) congrats to my team, the tar heels*.

 

* yeah, i didn’t go to unc. but when you go to a school with no sports aka nyu and live in an area where college ball sucks aka seton hall, st. john, rutgers, etc., you’re forced to pick a team you remember liking for their baby blue uniform when you were 10.
