FRINGE

have y'all seen "fringe"? it's awesome. check out this clip (pay no mind to josh jackson, he just broodin'!!!): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uDGMHKEWxrE (pace, HM, it won't let me embed it)

it's super-weird, and if you're like me then you'll take good, weird sci-fi where you can get it. it's the closest thing to the x-files since the x-files (it's not that good, though, although it's just as ambitiously weird). the characters are pretty stock for the most part but they've been filled out over the course of one-and-a-half seasons and are accordingly being allowed to act more like recognizable human beings at present. the coolest part, though, and the reason to watch if you're a sci-fi fan is the slowly unfurling mythology of the show's fictional universe(s). i think it's pretty genius and i've been thinking a lot about the feasibility and pseudoscience behind it a lot lately. i won't give it away but you guys should give it a chance--don't h8 just cuz it's on network tv.

what happens when they go to west virginia? are you thinking of when jodie foster and scott glenn go to WVA in silence of the lambs?

no. there's a somewhat infamous episode that i'm sure infuriated the wva bureau of commerce where scully and mulder go to some small wva town and deal with a family where the oldest son is also father to a number of what i guess you would call his siblings.

McGringo, that happens all the time with the embedding being disabled, mostly with trailers and official music vids, though.
