Tom Cruise vs. Chris Rock and Joshua Jackson (VIDEO)

Tom Cruise vs. Chris Rock and Joshua JacksonA few weeks ago, Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes, Joshua Jackson and Chris Rock all showed up at the National Movie Awards in England. According to unconfirmed rumors, there was a little friction between Cruise and Jackson -- because Josh used to date Tom's current wife Katie Holmes. Now, on 'The Graham Norton Show' (Sat., 10PM ET on BBC America), two of the participants discuss the controversy.

Supposedly, Tom wanted his wife kept far, far away from ex-boyfriend Jackson. In this clip, Josh and Chris Rock don't exactly address that issue -- though they do touch on the apparent strangeness of Tom Cruise.

Seeing Double on 'Fringe' (VIDEO)

Seeing Double on 'Fringe' Season FinaleBeing the season finale of 'Fringe' (Thu., 9PM ET on FOX), it's no surprise that events surrounding the alternate universe got more complicated. And poor Agent Olivia Dunham was in the center of it all.

[Spoiler alert.]


First off, Olivia fought herself. Then she and Peter finally got together and shared a kiss. "You have to come back, because you belong with me," she told him.

But then the "right" Olivia was trapped back in the alternate universe, while the other one infiltrated the team. How long will it be till they figure that out?

'Fringe' - 'Brown Betty' Recap

by Jane Boursaw, posted Apr 30th 2010 9:20AM
Fringe, Brown Betty, Musical Episode
(S02E20) "And together they made goodness and lived happily ever after. The end." - Ella's happier ending to the story

Let's just get this out of the way right now. Lily Pilblad (Ella) and John Noble (Walter) need a LOT more scenes together. In fact, if the unthinkable happens and 'Fringe' is yanked off the air, these two should have their own show together. She's so darn cute, and they act like they've been doing scenes together for years. My favorite was when she was holding the bucket for Jean the Cow, who was happily chomping away while Walter and Ella talked storylines. Way too sweet.

'Fringe' - 'The Man From the Other Side' Recap

(S02E19) "I want you to get some rest, Dad." - Peter to Walter

This episode of 'Fringe' had everything -- a slimy embryo, a thrilling gunfight, nefarious shapeshifters, some alternate universe action, and yes, that heartbreaking drama we've been waiting for all season.

'Fringe' - 'White Tulip' Recap

by Jane Boursaw, posted Apr 16th 2010 2:58AM
Fringe: White Tulip(S02E18) "Until I took my son from the other side, I had never believed in God. But it occurred to me that my actions had betrayed Him, and that everything that happened to me since then was God punishing me. So now I'm looking for a sign of forgiveness, a specific one, a white tulip ... If God can forgive me for my acts, maybe it's in the realm of possibility that my son will be able to forgive me." - Walter Bishop to Alistair Peck

First of all, how cool was it to see John Noble and Peter Weller hobnobbing on screen together? Just two old scientists exchanging time travel theories and comparing notes on saving/stealing loved ones.

It was the perfect vehicle to build on Walter's struggle about whether to tell Peter or not. In a sense, he'd already been through what Alistair was contemplating. Yes, Walter had crossed to another universe while Alistair was trying to jump back in time, but the result was the same -- be with the person you'd lost. Anyone who's lost a loved one can relate. There's nothing you wouldn't do to be with that person again, even if it means jeopardizing others in the process.

'Fringe' Theories - Where Do We Go From Here?

by Jane Boursaw, posted Apr 11th 2010 10:40AM
Fringe, John Noble, The Man From the Other SideNow that we're firmly into the second half -- and heading towards the end -- of season two of 'Fringe,' let's talk about what's happened so far, and what we think might happen. Some of these speculations will mirror those I made last September, because not all of those questions have been answered yet. In fact, we may have more questions now than we did back then.

Still, with the episode titled 'Peter,' we finally started to get into the nitty-gritty about Walter stealing Peter from the alternate universe. Of course, we all knew this, but when will Peter find out, and who will tell him? That and lots of other questions spring to mind.

Will Peter learn the truth about his origins?
Yes, I believe so, but the question is who will be the one to tell him? In last week's episode, 'Olivia. In the Lab. With a Revolver,' Olivia was determined to tell Peter the truth, but then decided against it after realizing that their family unit (Peter, Walter and Olivia) was more important than Peter knowing the truth. Then Walter decided that HE should be the one to tell Peter, painful as it might be. Walter knows there's a good chance that he could lose his son ... again. One other question is this: Walter visited Peter's grave in season one. If that grave is in this universe, why on earth would they use his real name on the gravestone? What if Peter stumbled across it?

'Fringe' - 'Olivia. In the Lab. With the Revolver' Recap

Fringe; Olivia. In the Lab. With the Revolver
(S02E17) "I have to tell him. I've gotta tell Peter the truth." - Olivia to Walter


I wish I could figure out how Sam, the bowling alley guy, fits into everything. I don't trust Nina Sharp one bit and neither does Olivia, so why should she think that Nina's suggestion to talk to Sam is a good thing? He could be totally nefarious (even though I don't get that vibe from him).

His midnight game of Clue did give us the great title for this episode, though, so there's that (along with the fact that we got to see Finn Garrity from 'Damages' again). But even so, he's not being very helpful at this point. Is he from the other universe? "I'm older than I look," he told Olivia. "I barely remember my childhood. I'm also taller than I appear."

'Glee'-Inspired Musical Week on Fox Includes a Singing, Dancing 'Fringe'

by Gary Susman, posted Mar 23rd 2010 11:14PM
Geeks, meet Gleeks.

To kick of the May sweeps, Fox is planning a week of 'Glee'-inspired musical programming, including a musical episode of sci-fi fan fave 'Fringe.' In the April 29 episode, entitled 'Overture,' the show's paranormal investigators will find themselves suddenly breaking out into song and dance numbers.

Turns out a lot of the 'Fringe' cast have music backgrounds, so they were psyched to show off their crooning and hoofing skills as part of the typical weirdness of the show. How do these musical interludes come about? Read on for spoilers.

Fox Orders a Full 22-Episode Third Season of 'Fringe'

by Mike Moody, posted Mar 8th 2010 5:28PM
fringe foxFox's recent decision to renew 'Fringe' for a third season came as a surprise to some, but it probably wasn't a shock to most fans. The Thursday night sci-fi show isn't exactly a ratings blockbuster, but there are other factors keeping 'Fringe' in play, including its devoted fan base and its excellent pedigree (the show is produced by the in-demand J.J. Abrams and supergeeks of the moment Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman).

Despite delivering some truly thrilling episodes this season, 'Fringe' continues to slip in the ratings. Surprisingly, Fox doesn't seem too concerned about the show's low Nielsen rankings. According to TVbytheNumbers.com, Fox has picked up 'Fringe' for a full 22-episodes. Not 9, not 13, but a full 22!

That's quite a show of faith from the network known for greenlighting great sci-fi shows ('Firefly,' 'The Sarah Connor Chronicles') only to strangle them with inept scheduling before laying them out on the chopping block.

Fox Gives 'Fringe' a Third Season

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 7th 2010 2:35PM
Fringe
Fans of FOX's 'Fringe,' you can all breathe a sigh of relief: the network has renewed the show for a third season.

This was probably never a question. I mean, not really. Sure, the show is not some incredible hit and an automatic renewal, but it's a show that has a definite following, and there hasn't been any indication that FOX was so unhappy with it that it was going to cancel the show. Add to that the fact that it's from J.J. Abrams and 'Lost' is ending this season and it was a pretty good bet the show would come back.

I still have to catch up with this show. I watched the first handful of episodes and liked it, but then I drifted away because ... well, who knows. Too many other shows to watch, etc., etc. But if there's one show on TV that I'm going to catch up with on DVD this summer it's this one.

Review: Fringe - The Bishop Revival

Fringe: The Bishop Revival
(S02E14) An episode titled "The Bishop Revival" almost has a little religious overtone. But Fringe this week was all about Nazis and Walter's dad's involvement with them. Turns out Dr. Robert Bishop (a.k.a. Bishov or Bishoff) was affiliated with the University of Berlin and came to this country in 1943. Also that he was a spy for the allies, smuggling scientific secrets to the Americans. Thus the setup for this episode and a little backstory for Walter.

Ok, I know Walter Bishop is brilliant, but coming up with a cure for a 75,000-year-old virus? A little far-fetched, but hey, we'll go with it. Geez, put Walter on the cure for the common cold or cancer. Just put him in a room with Astrid and a refrigerator, and who knows what awesome scientific wonders he might come up with. He's the new MacGyver.

Now that's more like it! After Monday's misplaced episode, Fringe was back to speed tonight with "Johari Window," an episode that played like a thriller movie. I love Fringe and always hate when an episode ends because I know I'll have to wait a whole week to see the next one.

While this was seemingly a stand-alone episode that didn't deal directly with the alternate universe, we did get a little tidbit from Walter at the end. One of those lines with very words and a facial expression that says so much. Oh, Walter. I feel for you when it all comes out in the open, because I have a feeling Peter won't be so forgiving.
