Newest Obsession: Fringe

I go through television shows like people go through shoes.  About every month I end up with a new show that I am absolutely obsessed with.  Last month it was Dawson's Creek.  I watched all 6 season (with some expert fast-forwarding skills) in about two weeks, and then went back and re-watched my favorite episodes.  My favorites were of course the best Pacey Witter episodes, because he is the only character worth re-watching.  I mean look at that face.


Oh yeah.  That boy grew into this man...


Say hello to Peter Bishop, one of the leads of Fringe.  He retains all of the witty dialogue of my beloved Pacey Witter, but without all those horrible collared shirts.  I started watching Fringe for the man candy, but kept watching for the endearing characters and science fiction story lines that are just out there enough to be interesting without going overboard.  It's easy for science fiction shows to get too far-fetched, but this one toes the line remarkably well.  It's also created by J.J. Abrams, the mastermind behind Alias and Lost, which helps.

What shows are you all obsessed with now?  Any recommendations for my next one?!

  5. I got REALLY into Fringe the first season and then I just kind of stopped watching it. Ironically my sister and her husband are now obsessed with it! Haha. Maybe it's time to get back into it :)
