Law and Order: Special Victims Unit infrequently has what I call “psychic” episodes. The SVU cops, who specialize in sexually-based offenses, find themselves on a case which has no apparent sexual component. Of course, they eventually discover that it is a sex case, after all. It’s as though the person in charge knew in advance how the case would turn out, and called the SVU.

Last night’s Fringe had a similar sort of beginning. Olivia gets called to investigate a non-Fringe case. It looks like assault by someone with schizophrenia. Of course, it turns out to be a real nightmare, and entirely suited to the Fringe Force.

Do people want full Fringe reviews? We haven’t had much discussion of this show lately.
