JJ Abrams is the master of keeping projects a secret and teasing those projects to a point that a movie like "Cloverfield" can become one of the most anticipated films. Today, he's back with another mysterious project.
Abrams has released a creepy teaser for something that his Bad Robot production company is working on. We know that the video is called "Stranger," but whether it will be a movie, TV series or web series is still unclear.
As with most of these teasers, details will start being unveiled soon enough. For now, watch the video below and let us know what you think this is for.
FRINGE..don't get me started. What a convoluted mess that became. The final season was pointless. Has anyone told Joshua Jackson that he sucks serious sh*t as an actor? John Noble was awesome, though.

I just found out there's people who think Fringe is better than The X-Files. One of the reasons listed (The Daily Beast) is that Fringe had more black people. Really? The number of black people determines a show's worth? Other reasons: Fringe had no aliens, and everything in the show was "theoretically possible", like parallel universes colliding.
I've never seen the show, but already it sounds incredibly stupid.

Fringe certainly had it's moments but it does not hold a candle to The X-Files. If it were not for John Noble I would never have watched it. He's just a great actor and was so good as Walter Bishop that the character really seemed like a real person, Noble pulled it off brilliantly.

You know Bruce Willis hates Fringe. Reminds him of what's left of his hair.

Fringe had promise
but they knew their seasons were limited so sh*t got rushed
And we all know what happens when you rush out your sh*t
Alot of buttshot residue and hemorrhoids
And Joshua Jackson has that Bill Bixby permanent furrow between his eyebrows
which he is way too young to have
He was tolerable as the prick to his dad street genius thats too cool to share his genius with the man

For fans of the late Karen Black and Oliver Reed
heres: Burnt Offerings
A long slow burn of a creepy movie
If thats your speed
(not that kind of a long slow burn)
FRINGE had a lot of promise early on, with seasons 1 & 2 being the best. It's when the whole "parallel universe" story arc began to be the focus of the series that it began to be convoluted, tripping over it's own logic and confusing the fans. The back and forth with "Fauxlivia" and "Walternate", etc. got old quickly, and the parallel universe was never fully realized. I did like their idea of "Show Me Cards" as the name for their side's IDs, though. Even into seasons 3 & 4, their were some great standalone episodes (the one with Peter Weller was fantastic), but those were few and far between. As DeaftOne said, John Noble was the only reason to tune in. He was fantastic and should've had an Emmy nom. The last season seemed like a last second add-on and was absolutely pointless. At one point, Peter became like Neo when he took on the Observer's abilities--it was retarded. I did like the Observer storyline, even into the final season, and that was about the only highlight of last episodes. It tried to have it's own long story arc like THE X-FILES (Mulder and his alien/govt. conspiracy) with Walter/Peter and the parallel universe, but it became a mess the further the seasons wore on.
I won't even give Fringe a chance just because I've heard people say its better then X-Files. Nothing's better than The X-Files! Joking of course.. I've seen a couple shows Better. But not many..
ER, Soprano's, LOST, X-Files, Breaking Bad, Walking Dead, Dexter, Supernatural and Californication are ALL the shows that I've watched every episode of and out of them all.. Soprano's comes first, Then X-Files, Then Breaking Bad.
I also have several "Not so big" shows that I watch an have seen every episode so far of, Like: Under The Dome and Bates Motel!
I agree with everything Rambo said about LOST. Great up until the series finale, which made the entire season 6 pointless. Guess we better shut up, Rambo, or Damon242(I think that's his handle) will come out of the woodwork to defend his show's honor.
@Tanman. DEXTER is a frustrating show that pisses me off. It's up, it's down. The writing is f*cking lazy and piss-poor most of the time. It reminds me of THE MENTALIST, which has a great, engaging central protagonist (Simon Baker's Patrick Jane) surrounded by remedial, generic, lazy plot mechanics. If it wasn't for Michael C. Hall (and more recently for me, Jennifer Carpenter, who's been really great the last two seasons) I would stop watching. I only recently began watching it a couple of months ago. I'm glad I didn't invest the last 8 years keeping up with it. This season is a step backwards, again, and with only a few episodes left, a real disappointment.

"This season is a step backwards, again, and with only a few episodes left, a real disappointment."
Gotta agree with you there, Cress, the current season of Dexter has been (thus far) the dumps. That agonizingly cute dinner scene in the most recent episode was one of the lowest points of the entire series.
Mink's right... Sherlock can't return soon enough. Speaking of which, when IS it returning? Mink? Cress?
@Mark. From what I could find, a late 2013 or early 2014 bow for Sherlock.
As for DEXTER, it's moving at a snail's pace with no sense of urgency, and a lot of stupid writing. I was looking forward to Hanna's smoking hot ass returning, but last weeks episode was dumb. She drugs them to dump Dex on the side of the road? She comes back to where she's wanted for murder six months later? We meet her husband, find out he has anger issues, and he's dead by the end of the episode--dumb. Dex gets beaten up by his henchmen, yet in the next scene he sneaks onto the guy's boat in broad daylight? Are the writers even f*cking trying anymore?
And can someone please murder Jamie? She is f*cking annoying. When she's not bitching at Quinn about Deb, she being sheepishly perky babysiting Harrison. I don't think she's folding your clothes neatly enough, Dex--put her on your table, pronto!
YEah, howdi, Green Lensman, jut chilling out here, once in a while, there is a good humor here from time to time which is good to read which is good to read if not everyone, some or them or just a few comments.
Cress, I 100% agree. Dexter can be absolutely garbage sometimes. Awful writing.. This season f*cking blows ass, It's like they're not even trying. I still have to watch the latest episode..
@Crambo- The first seasons were great. I loved Doakes character as well but he had to be kille off, He was gettin too close. By far my favorite character (Other the dexter obviously) are 1, Trinity cause he was just an awesome character and terrifically played by that actor john lithgow and 2, George Novikov from last season. Man was he an amazing character, He added so much to the show. Much needed excitement and action exactly where it was needed.
This new plot line with Vogal just straight blows. I hope he goes on the run. Seriously, The only way I can see the ending being REALLY exciting is if he gets caught and he goes on the run.
