first off there are similar things which the x-files but fringe is not the x-files the show is about olivia dunham(one of the main character who works for the fbi in solving strange cases.she soon gets a couple of people on her team to help her with this cases.walter(john noble) who was behind most of this strange cases and his son peter(joshua jackson) who helps olivia understand his father walter better.astrid is the assistant to walter and there are many others characters that you will have to get to know.as the show goes on olivia discovers she has this powers.olivia discovers that her and others where experiment on when they were very young.olivia and others where made as guardinas to protect the world from a great threat that was coming.i dont want to give to much away but you can see where the show is going.and that isnt nothing like the x-files.the show is very myterious about olivia and other like her that have powers.where did they come from?who gave them their powers?the show also focus on strange things that happen in the world,there are no aliens this isnt x-files,but there are monsters or crazy people with powers doing terrible things.each season as a different plot so dont worry to much about the powers thing.but when every season ends they answer all questions you may have but set up new questions in your head for next season..the show does have action in it.there are some fight scenes that anna torv pulls off very well,there lots of shoot out sometimes,the writing is very good,the acting is very good too,and the chemistry between the cast is just great.the only problem with this show is sometimes the stories can be so difficult to follow you can get lost very easily if u dont pay attention.
