With the exception of here, here and here, it’s not often that this TV Addict interrupts your regularly scheduled programming to toot his own horn. That said, it’s even less often something this cool happens.
[Cue Shameless Self Promotion]
Take a look at the pull quotes [industry speak for quotes networks and studios pull from the media to promote their wares] that recently appeared in an official FOX press release touting the new J.J. Abrams series FRINGE. Notice anything familiar?
“I was gripped and entertained from beginning to end.”
“Do I want to watch another one? Definitely. I’ll be surprised if I see a better pilot…for this fall.”
“The pilot script and story is very compelling.”
“J.J. Abrams’ FRINGE Brings ‘X-Files’ Weirdness Back to FOX.”
NEW YORK MAGAZINE
“Worth a season pass? Yes. An ‘X-Files’ with the mythology laid out from the get-go, FRINGE promises to ride grody special effects, the chemistry of its oddball trio, and Lance Reddick’s basso profundo to the genre promised land. After watching the pilot, we can only say: More, please.”
NEW YORK MAGAZINE
“I’d be shocked if we see another fall pilot this year as good as this one. Scary, funny, suspenseful and super-slick FRINGE will fire imaginations and, like the three Abrams-scripted pilots before it, leave viewers craving more.”
AIN’T IT COOL NEWS
“FRINGE is officially the must see new show of the fall.”
