Fringe Season One
Woooo Hoooo! I am finally able to watch the most amazing show from its beginning. Having received said show’s boxed set as a Christmas present, I am now able to see how it all began. I am not one to get into a television series, but Fringe is different. It is all based on Science. The show Numb3rs is good, but it is not Fringe. I guess Numb3rs would be close though. The only other show I can remember ever really getting into was Alias, but even that got old after while. Lost was cool, but yeah, too there was too much that was hard to believe. But I never got very involved with any of these shows, and rarely watched regularly. Except for Fringe.
I like realism. I like the truth. If I want fantasy I’ll watch the cartoon Tom and Jerry (a fave)! Sarcastic realism? The Simpsons. And if I want crude humor with a touch of slander there is always Family Guy. But for the truth (and it is real to me even if some of it is hypothetical science), I like Fringe. I am a firm believer in the power of the mind and Fringe explores that in depth.
Abstract thinking has taken me to some incredible places, so I think I’ll keep at it. The show sometimes provides starting points to further research, but often I find myself just exploring where my mind may go. Sometimes it is profound but sometimes it is boring. Thinking back, having a clearer mind, which has been brought on by sobriety really helps too. I think back to some of my misadventures… and though fun and mind-altering, I think that my all-natural mind-travels are a bit better, and they seem to become enhanced as time progresses. I am viewing sobriety as hacking my mind. I know of its capabilities, now it is time to try and explore them in the hopes of maybe harnessing some of its power. Because really: This is definitely a new adventure for me, at least in the ‘clear headed’ sense. Now… if only I could check/reduce my caffeine and chocolate consumption… lol.
(I am thinking that a future post should explore Television Shows that I’ve enjoyed…) That would be a great post to read no matter who wrote it I’d say. Maybe even you will write such a post, but that is of course assuming that you are out there reading this and blogging that. Or, it could just be Google’s spiders, diligently indexing this, fulfilling the data needs for the future generations of computerkind. Ramble ramble.
