Methinks they doth protest too much, but James Randi's website asked five brainiacs to review the scientific accuracy of Fox's new TV show Fringe, the X-Files clone that was just picked up for a full season.
On the one hand, c'mon -- it's a sci-fi show whose stated intention of exploring "fringe science" clearly gives it a pass on the real world. On the other hand, this is pretty funny:
I'm hoping this show can find its footing soon. Only one episode to date -- "The Arrival" -- has been worth re-watching. I think Fringe's problems have nothing to do with pseudo-science at all, and everything to do with one-note characters who offer little emotional investment.
