Fringe Friday

SFX MAGAZINE: The Science Of Fringe

Quantum physicist David Deutsch describes why alternative universes may not just be the stuff of science fiction – and that’s why he loves Fringe

by Dave Golder
September 28 2011

It’s a big week for Fringe. Last Friday season four premiered in the States and tonight we play catch-up in the UK (10pm, Sky1). The third season has also just been released on DVD and Blu-ray, courtesy of Warner Home Video. It’s one of the most unashamedly “out there” shows on TV, delving gleefully into all manner of hardcore SF ideas, and at its heart is the ongoing arc of an alternate universe, filled with unfamiliar versions of familiar characters.

And it’s all nonsense, right? More sci-fantasy than something based on the latest revelations in New Scientist?

Maybe, maybe not.

Meet David Deutsch, a “controversial” quantum physicist, scientific philosopher and writer, author of such books as The Fabric Of Reality and his latest (published earlier this year in hardback, and in January 2012 in paperback), The Beginning Of Infinity. A staunch believer in the esistence of alternate universes, he’s also found the way Fringe deals with the idea refreshing... even if it doesn’t quite fit in with the theories...

Fringe Season 4

... Q: So do you watch Fringe in a state of “suspension of disbelief?”

David Deutsch: "No, not really. There are two approaches to fictional science, one of which I like and the other of which I hate. The one I hate is where you just make up stuff and anything goes. That’s no good, because there is no integrity to such a story.

The good way of doing science fiction is to invent a premise, perhaps totally unjustified or totally fictional in terms of science, but you invent that premise and then investigate what the world would be like if that premise were true. And investigate that premise ideally in the way scientists use to investigate the implications of real scientific theories. The best science fiction is of that kind. But unfortunately it’s only science fiction books that reach the really high standard of that sort of thing. Books like Greg Egan, for example.

I think you can divide Fringe episodes into two kinds. There’s what you might call “joke” episodes which are just about a one-off idea and the interest in the story is not really in the fictional science. But Fringe also does the other thing. There are some episodes – and also the main thread of the plot as it runs through all the episodes – where what they’ve done is they’ve taken parallel universes theory and they explore it. They’ve changed it a bit, so that for instance, there are only two universes instead of countless numbers of them, and so that you can move between them instead of not being able to and so on. But they stated up front what these differences are, and then they used that fictional science to investigate not only issues that would arise in that fictional world, but some of the philosphical issues, like I said earlier, about personal identity and so on. In that respect, I think the authors of Fringe have done a fairly good job. I watch it for entertainment, but I’m more entertained when it’s exploring those issues.

I don’t get angry about bad science like some scientists do. What I get angry about is bad fiction...

Bedlam - BBC America Video Featurette: Meet Jed

Source: BBC America You Tube channel



Meet Jed (Theo James, Downtown Abbey, Underworld Awakening). Jed's the new roommate at Bedlam Heights. He's nice to look at, handy around the house... and he can communicate with the ghosts of people who used to live in the mental hospital that is now his apartment complex.

Don't miss BEDLAM, the new addition to BBC America's Supernatural Saturday, that dares to imagine a haunted Melrose Place. Premiering immediately after the season finale of Doctor Who, *** Saturday October 1 at 10/9c *** only on BBC America. Then, starting October 8, new episodes move to its regular slot: Saturdays at 9/8c.

Bedlam official site on BBC America.

Kate (Charlotte Salt, The Tudors), a direct descendant of the people who ran the former asylum for generations, lives and works in Bedlam Heights. Her father, Warren (Hugo Speer, Skins), still owns the old family property, and Kate is helping him fill the remaining vacant apartments. She shares her apartment with roommates Ryan (Will Young, Skins) and Molly (Ashley Madekwe, Secret Diary of a Call Girl), but only with the unexpected arrival of Kate's adopted cousin, Jed (Theo James, Downton Abbey) -- a troubled man with a history of mental illness who sees ghosts and visions of the past -- are they able to uncover the terrifying secrets of Bedlam Heights. The hauntings that follow prove that sometimes when you scratch away the surface, things aren't always what they seem.

NICE GIRL TV: SANCTUARY: Amanda Tapping & Robin Dunne Dish On Season 4, Musical Episodes & More

by Andrea
September 27, 2011

The SyFy series Sanctuary has changed the scope of television by shooting exclusively with green screens and special effects. While their technology is out of this world, however, the series’ stars Robin Dunne (Dr. Will Zimmerman) and Amanda Tapping (Dr. Helen Magnus) are very much down to earth. The duo recently participated in a conference call where they spoke with about their upcoming episodes, how their characters have changed since the beginning of the series, and what’s in store for Season 4...

Helen and Will Season 4

... Question: Can you talk about the musical episode?

Amanda: "The musical episode is our eighth episode. It’s called Fugue. It was written by Damian Kindler and he wrote the lyrics for the music with our composer, Andrew Lockington. And it’s interesting…you’re not going to see an episode of Glee. There’s not big production numbers or dancing or anything like that. It’s actually a very organic way of telling a story, and the songs, even though the songs are sung, it’s sort of like you’re hearing a scene."

Robin: "Yes, I think the way that the music and the story are married together, like Amanda says…it’s very organic and it was an amazing episode to shoot. During a lot of the musical scenes, a lot of the crew were saying that it was like they were just watching a scene, and the singing was sort of secondary, which was kind of interesting..."

Sanctuary returns on Friday, October 7 at 10/9c on SyFy.

Neverland Dec 4

NEVERLAND - SYFY VIDEO: 'Live By Our Rules' Movie Trailer Airs December 2011

Before Peter met Wendy. Before the boys were lost. Before Hook became captain. The 2-night Syfy Original Movie Event Neverland coming in December.

Neverland, a prequel to author J.M. Barrie's classic, Peter Pan, sweeps in time from the turbulent seas of the pirates of the Caribbean and the back alleys of Dickensian London to a world of pure imagination. The cast includes Rhys Ifans (Pirate Radio, Notting Hill) as James Hook, Oscar nominee Keira Knightley as the voice of Tinker Bell, Anna Friel (Pushing Daisies) as Captain Elizabeth Bonny, Oscar nominee Bob Hoskins as Smee (who previously played the character in Steven Spielberg's feature, Hook), Raoul Trujillo (Tin Man) and Charlie Rowe (Pirate Radio) as one of literature's most cherished characters, Peter Pan.


Peter (Rowe), along with his pals of young pickpockets, have been rounded up by their mentor Jimmy Hook (Ifans) to snatch a magical orb which transports them to another world - Neverland. Filled with white jungles and imposing cities formed out of trees created by Dr. Fludd (Dance) and inhabited by a colony of tree spirits led by Tinker Bell (Knightley), this mysterious realm welcomes unknown friends and enemies snatched from time. These include power-mad Elizabeth Bonny (Friel) and her band of 18th century pirates who search for the answer to eternal youth, a secret guarded by a Holy Man (Trujillo). As the fight to save this strange and beautiful world escalates, Peter and his crew consider that growing old somewhere in time could be less important than growing up—right here in their new home called Neverland.


Neverland premieres on Syfy in December 2011.
