In a perfect world, it would be all about Peter and Olivia. But in Fringe's alternate universe, there's that damn Fauxlivia to worry about, too. And with young Mr. Bishop still harboring the warm-and-fuzzies for his Mata Hari from the other side, not to mention a pileup of major revelations that come out in this week's episode (Friday, 9/8c on Fox), things just can't be black or white... or in the show's multiverse color scheme, red or blue.

Fashion Flop: Anna Torv At The Teen Choice Awards

August 10th, 2010 2:33pm EDT
Anna Torv
Why does a sexy woman like Anna Torv torture us with such a bland fashion choice? The "Fringe" actress opted for black shorts and a jungle print blouse at the 2010 Teen Choice Awards. We think it's unflattering and unattractive. What do you think?

Anna recently separated from her husband, Former "Fringe" co-star Mark Valley, after just a year of marriage. The couple met while filming the first season of the hit J.J. Abrams show. The two played FBI partners who hid the affair they were having from their bosses at the FBI before Valley's character was killed off early in the series.

Fringe actress Anna Torv has separated from her husband, former co-star Mark Valley, after just a year of marriage, according to a U.S. report.

The website reports the pair separated "a few months ago."

Expect More Nina Sharp On 'Fringe' And Possible Romance With Agent Broyles

October 13th, 2009 11:16am EDT
Fringe
Fox's sci-fi show Fringe is full of surprises. Leonard Nimoy is the mad scientist William Bell. Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv) is traveling to an alternate dimension. Peter (Joshua Jackson) is really an imposter but he doesn't know it. Charlie (Kirk Acevedo) is an imposter and he DOES know it.

But the big shocker from this season's premier that nobody is talking about is the implied romance between FBI agent Broyles (Lance Reddick) and Massive Dynamic maven Nina Sharp (Blair Brown).

"The question for me is: is it completely in the past or is it something that's starting up again?" Reddick...

Fringe
At last year's San Diego Comic-Con, science fiction fans were spoiled with previews into a new FOX show titled "Fringe." Headed by fan favorite J.J. Abrams and compared to "X-Files," the show starred Joshua Jackson, Anna Torv, and John Noble. After a very positive first season, the show is returning in the fall for its second, so this time the "Fringe" actors and writers were welcomed to Comic-Con as successful stars. I was lucky enough to check out the panel on Saturday in a room completely packed full with diehard fans.

DOA: Fall TV Most Likely To Be Canceled

September 4th, 2008 11:30am EDT
Kath & Kim
It's often difficult during a show's first season. Characters come and go, storylines are tweaked, and main players sometimes get replaced. Remember the Aunt Vivs of "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" or the husband swap on "Bewitched?"

If a show hasn't proven itself early on, it's an uphill battle. After last season's writers' strike, this may be the first time viewers come to their TVs with welcomed anticipation instead of judgment for new shows. Maybe. But there are some shows that will struggle more than others:
