  • <p><a onclick=Joshuajackson_fringe_240 Well, fellow Misfits, we're heading into that glorious time of the television schedule: Fall sweeps!

But this year, cuts need to be made.

  • <p><a href=Annatorv_fringe_240_002 The introduction of Fringe into the television landscape brings to the forefront one of the Misfits' favorite tropes: the conspiracy!

In Fringe, it's something called "The Pattern," started in the 1970s in a Harvard laboratory and extending from here all the way to Dawson's Creek.
