Why I’d Watch Fringe Even If The Soundtrack Were Nails On A Chalkboard.

Joshua. Jackson. **sigh**

Is it wrong that even as a 40-year-old mom I still have a teenage über-crush on this Dawson’s Creek heartthrob?

Sure Pacey’s “Clooneyesque” charm went largely unappreciated next to the more obvious Lead Dude looks of James Van Der Beek.

But I’m a sucker for the screwed up sidekick.

Fringe, airing tonight at 9 pm on FOX, comes from the cryptic mind of J.J. Abrams and has been tagged X-Files meets Alias. And, unlike Lost, you will not need Cliff Notes to follow the show if you miss an episode.

Even though tonight’s two-hour season premiere is being presented with “limited commercial interruptions” I’d still TiVo it to watch Joshua (Mr. Jackson if you’re nasty) flash those intense green eyes and coy smile as Peter Bishop, son of Dr. Walter Bishop, an institutionalized scientific genius (played by John Noble).

PLOT AT A GLANCE: There’s a whole lot of weird shit going on that conventional science cannot explain. Enter FBI agent Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv—a Cate Blanchett’s doppelganger) who will join forces with The Bishops in search of answers.

From the trailer the show looks promising. The perfect balance of science and fiction, not to mention high-octane sexual tension between Olivia and Peter.

Welcome back Pacey, I’m missed you.
