Fringe on FOX

Speaking of fring (blogged earlier today), there is a cool new TV series called Fringe which comes out this Fall created by American Emmy Award-winning film and television producer, writer, actor, composer, and director J.J. Abrams. J.J. Abrams also wrote and produced for the popular TV show Lost, including the opening sequence in the first episode of Lost where the plane breaks apart in mid-air.

Apparently Abrams hates planes since in the opening sequence in Fringe involves a plane that lands "intact" but all of its occupants are dead and the inside of the plane is bloody, dark, and eerie. The show definitely has an X-Files feel to it, which is fine by me, since I'm a huge X-Files fan. The trailer talks about exponential science advancements including re-animation, teleportation, genetics, etc.

The new show premieres September 9th at 8pm ET/PT and stars Joshua Jackson (Pacey from Dawson's Creek) , Anna Torv, John Noble, Blair Brown, Lance Reddick, Kirk Acevedo, and Jasika Nicole. Fringe airs this Fall on FOX. So will this be just another X-Files rip-off or will it suck you in and and make you addicted? FOX has had me addicted to X-Files, 24, and now potentially Fringe so I can't wait till the Fall! Smallville is another TV show I'm addicted to, but it's been slowly going down-hill. Guess it's run it's course after 7 seasons, now in its 8th season.

Also, check out this other Fringe preview where a female FBI agent chases down a suspect. Some high-octane chasing, roof jumping, camera shaking action that will get your heart pumping.
Now as to what this has to do with VoIP. Well, Fringe is similar to fring, the mobile VoIP app. Ok, that's a stretch. How bout, I'm excited to see how advanced scientific advancements are portrayed in the show, specifically regarding mobile phones and VoIP. Lest you forget, the show 24 had Cisco IP phones and even had a drunk guy hitting on Chloe using VoIP as a pickup line  - "Whatdya got? A little voice over IP going on there?"  So the new TV show, Fringe in order to be on the 'bleeding edge' should have wireless VoIP phones, miniature hidden in-ear Bluetooth headsets that work 1000 feet away for when the bad guy takes your phone away you can still covertly dial for help , or maybe even WIMAX phones or some other futuristic communications technology.
