''Fringe'' (August 2008-January 2013) is a Creator/{{FOX}} ScienceFiction TV series created by Creator/JJAbrams and his compatriots Creator/AlexKurtzman and Creator/RobertoOrci. Other J.J. coworkers from ''Series/{{Lost}}'' and ''Series/{{Alias}}'' are involved as well. Conceptually, it is not unlike ''Series/TheXFiles'', with the primary threat being MadScientist terrorists, instead of an AlienInvasion. In practice it is like ''The X-Files'' [[XMeetsY meets]] ''Series/{{CSI}}''. Like J.J.'s other shows, it has a slowly developing MythArc involving an AlternateUniverse, mysterious "Observers," an ActionGirl, and crazy, off-the-wall happenings right from the get-go. It's quite a MindScrew.
