Watch from the start to avoid confusion!

Advantages: Good acting and interesting storylines.
Disadvantages: Can be confusing at times.
I'm well into series four of Fringe now, I have to say that I nearly gave up on it in series one, but series two made me a firm fan and I haven't looked back since. The dynamics of the main 3 characters, Walter and Peter Bishop and Olivia Dunham are really what makes the show as some of the story lines can be ever so slightly confusing and implausible. The 'Fringe Division' are part of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and specialise in investigating the unexplained and often unexplainable, there's also a lot of parallel universe stuff going on which is why it helps if you watch from the beginning.
There's a definite black comedy element brought into it by Walters character who, despite being a scientific genius has spent the last 17 years in a mental asylum, his quirky nature and taste for all things sweet, especially in the middle of an autopsy, can alleviate the seriousness of Olivia's character.
Get the boxset and enjoy!
Summary: Similar to the X files but with better acting.
