Another television series that pushed boundaries and expectations this past year was FRINGE. Regularly underestimated, FRINGE continues to provide astoundingly well-conceived and brilliantly portrayed stories that also challenge our perceptions about the world around us. The dual-universe stories and the mirroring of its characters in two different worlds is enthralling. It also challenges us to rethink what we think we know about the characters introduced in the first season and how they have evolved. Most shows are content to create their characters fully-formed early on, but in FRINGE’s case, with each episode, the core characters changed with a chameleon-like grace and astound us all over again — even now that the series is in its fourth season. Credit goes the writers who created them and the stars Anna Torv, John Noble, Josh Jackson, Jasika Nicole and newcomer Seth Gabel for their stunning ability to seamlessly transition between their multi-faceted and increasingly fascinating characters. It has never been more fun to watch the kaleidoscope spin and see where everyone lands up next and who he or she may be next. Science fiction is an enigma in and of itself, yet FRINGE makes it look effortless and exciting.
