Great Source of Paranormal + Mad Science

Recommended Posts

Who else out there is watching Fringe? Already after the first three episodes I want to play Promethean some more. The show has that special blend of Mad Science and the sense of menace of the World of Darkness as a whole. Plus, their resident mad scientist is totally demi-urge material.

Anyway, love the show. Thought I'd mention it.

Which we won't hold against you.

After all -- somebody has to.

Fringe is totally more up the alley of The Cheiron Group than Promethean, IMO.

Fringe.

Scene:

A guy is on an airplane and seems nervous.

There is turbulence.

He finally decides that he needs his insulin and injects himself.

He puts away his injector and gets up to go to the bathroom, there is a sneaking suspicion that something is still wrong.

A flight attendant tries to tell him that he must return to his seat (turbulence) and he turns to look at her and his face is starting to dissolve and his jaw is hanging loose.

*BREAK*

Everyone is screaming and their flesh is dissolving and the captain flips on the autopilot while the co-pilot goes to see what all the screaming and moaning is about.

The co-pilot open the door and stares into the hellish scene.

The captain asks about what is happening.

The co-pilot turns to answer but whatever is happening is affecting him as well.

*OPENING CREDITS*

*NEW SCENE*

Plane is on the ground, newly installed autopilot system supposedly can land an airplane.

Everyone on board is dead and all the biological matter in the plane has turned to a disgusting soup.

Everyone is horribly dead and the FBI brings in a team to find out why.

What was it?

You have to find a copy to see.

Good opening premise and it features a "mad scientist" as a major protagonist.

FRINGE refers to "fringe science", follow that link and see what its all about.

I should watch the next two episodes, maybe I will in a few minutes.

Full episodes of Fringe can be found on Fox's web site. You can probably see them, Blood Money, though I'd not be surprised if Fox followed in the footsteps of the BBC.

Even if it did allow people outside the US to see it, don't bother trying with Firefox.

Firefox is NOT a supported browser and thus the player add-on won't download/install.

Buh? I'm on Firefox. The only other browser on this computer is Chrome, and I have the FOX page open in a tab in Firefox right now. I downloaded the add-on, restarted, and watched Fringe all in Firefox. I suspect you're doing it wrong.

Its useful to both. Massive Dynamics could definately help a ST understand how Cheiron might function, but most of the mad science, which is really what the show is about reminds me more of Saturnine Night, but eh. Tis a good source of WoD-like stuff.

That's good news, not very good news though.

Because it means that this computer is really hosed up.

People tuning into the show do have a rare treat:

The show is a test vehicle for limited commercials.

"Fringe will return in 70 seconds."

"Fringe will return in 90 seconds."

As opposed to 6 minute commercial breaks as in other shows.

This means that you see close to 60 minutes of actual show in a 60 minute time slot as opposed to more like 34 minutes of show in a 60 minute span.

If you like the idea of limited commercial interruption, you NEED to support this show.
