Wire-Tapping with Fringe's Lance Reddick
Lance Reddick has played Matthew Abaddon, the mysterious and malevolent Lost orderly, and Philip Broyles, the mysterious and benevolent (we think?) Fringe FBI boss. But he's most known for Cedric Daniels, The Wire's Machiavellian police captain who knew how to work the system to get things done—and we mean Machiavellian in the best possible way. Read More
'Fringe': Winter finale
I want to applaud Fox for running with the concept of winter finales. Considering most shows are going on hiatus while the Olympics, “American Idol,” and “Lost” battle it out (my eyes will be on the one with parallel timelines), why not tie up some loose ends and give the audience a cliffhanger to hold them over until spring? “Glee” did a marvelous job of closing out its first chapter, and “Fringe” gave us some juicy bits to chew on while we eagerly await April.
Over the last two weeks, “Fringe” has shown us how good they have gotten with stand-alone episodes. Thursday night, “Fringe” dives straight into a mythology-heaving hour. Read More

The combination of mad scientist, delighted child and psychotropic drug enthusiast, Walter is a core component of "Fringe," and in a single season he’s become one of the most interesting individuals on the small screen.
