"Fringe" explores the past in tonight's episode (9pm on FOX)

"Fringe" explores the past in tonight's episode (9pm on FOX)
We were "shocked" to learn Fox News and Sarah Palin misrepresenting who will be involved with her planned program on the network. So far LL Cool J and Toby Keith have been caught unawares that interviews with them, some a couple years old, were to be edited into the show without their permission. Neither Fox News nor Sarah Palin are known for their integrity but yet they manage to reach new lows - congratulations!
Bryan Cranston of "Breaking Bad" is in talks to do a Julia Roberts/Tom Hanks film which initially sounds not so great until you read about Bryan Cranston's proposed character who sounds hilarious.
We're excited to watch "FlashForward" and "Fringe" at broadcast time tonight as the NBC comedy block is all repeats. Both shows' episodes have had a lot of buzz around them lately so let's see if they deliver.
