Tonight, it’s the premiere of Fringe on Fox. Dawson’s Creek star Joshua Jackson comes back to TV in this creepy thriller that’s shades of The X-Files but so much more. I will warn you that the opening scenes are not for those with a weak stomach but after that it’s more thriller than horror movie, so fast forward if you must and then watch the rest.
By the way, last night I was blown away by the season opener of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. One nice twist, one new direction and a big reveal at the end. Fabulous stuff. If you missed it, check the Fox website for repeat airings.
The CW has a new series premiering tonight as well. It’s called Privileged and it’s a lighter version of Gossip Girl with a middle-class tutor getting indoctrinated into the world of the filthy rich.
