Fringe Season 1, Episode 1: “Pilot”. Special Agent Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv) investigates cases involving phenomena on the very edge of accepted science. Rather than the supernatural or paranormal, these cases explore “fringe sciences”. Agent Dunham is the best parts of both Mulder and Scully, able to embrace the unconventional but equally skeptical and unwilling to walk into the unknown … until it walks into her life. Dube, Did you watch “Fringe”? simply amazing. Thanks JJ Abrams. I needed a new show. The scene where the students knock on the door to Walter’s lab is classic. Freshmen students: Is this poly-sci 101? Agent Olivia Dunham : Not Remotely. Astrid: Who was it? Olivia: Freshmen.
