I'm a HUGE fan of his. If his name doesn't ring a bell for you, think ALIAS or LOST. He's the creator of both TV shows. ALIAS is my all-time favorite TV show, and LOST has become a Dawson-family favorite. I'm so looking forward to LOST beginning again - unfortunately we have to wait until January 2009. In the meanwhile, there is a new JJ Abrams show about to debut on Fox...
The show is called FRINGE. David and I watched the pilot episode last night... it was creepy, but so good. The show, in my opinion, is a cross between ALIAS, Heroes, and The X-Files. The show follows an FBI agent who is investigating "the pattern" of abnormal/scary scientific phenomena.
The pilot cost around $10 million to create - and it was worth it. The special effects were incredible (especially for TV). The storyline was easier to follow than ALIAS was and the main character, FBI Agent Dunham, is likable (just like Sydney Bristow). According to one article about the show, "it will focus on brilliant but possibly crazy research scientist Walter Bishop, his estranged son and a female FBI agent who brings them together. Episodes will explore self-contained mysteries of the paranormal, as well as the relationships between the three leads."
The series begins September 9th on Fox.
