SFX - - 20 greatest tv shows -

Launch­ing in 2008 from the then- dream team of JJ Abrams, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtz­man, Fringe suf­fered at first from in­evitable com­par­isons to The X- Files: gov­ern­ment agents are sent to in­ves­ti­gate mys­te­ri­ous phe­nom­ena. How­ever, soon it set the bar so high that Mul­der and Scully couldn’t even have seen it with binoc­u­lars, thanks to dop­pel­gangers, par­al­lel worlds and a widen­ing net of en­tropy threat­en­ing to de­stroy en­tire uni­verses. Fringe never, ever played it safe – par­tic­u­larly in its bizarre fi­nal sea­son – and we will love it for­ever for that.

Two fel­las you can rely on for vi­o­lence and hu­mour.
