A Phenomenon Known As “J.J. Vu”

Even though I’ve never seen A.L.I.A.S., Josh tells me it had the same undertones. Maybe Felicity did too. It was, after all, about time travel. Maybe J.J. Abrams only has the one idea. Regardless I am going to stick around for Fringe and see where it goes. The pilot got me interested and the follow up episode that aired last night, while not stellar, managed to keep me interested. I am still “take it or leave it” at this point.

Check out HE Podcast # 28 (around 02:09:30) to hear our complete opinions on the pilot, the show’s concept, its chances for survival and why Josh hates it so much.

  2. Josh's hair change isn't an exaggeration, is it? Hilarity. I still need to see fringe.

  3. No, the best part is "one of those brain things".

  5. I'll let you end on a secret. When the final panel of your comic doesnt have a very strong joke, just add a ton of blood.

  6. Dude, he still has that hair from time to time even now.

  7. New in the HijiNKS store: Josh Action Figure with Removable RealHair (TM).

  8. Because judging from the comments, this will henceforth be known as "the hair comic", I'll add my two cents.

    Seems to me that Josh's hair simply migrated over to Eli. I'm thinking alien symbiote.

  11. Eli's additional beard just migrated to the back of his head.

  16. TREBBLES! THEY'RE TREBBLES! AM I EVEN SPELLING THAT RIGHT?

  17. I saw the 1st 2 ep's & it already makes way more sense than lost. Plus the back-n-forth between the super-scientist dad & son is really funny. Whoever they're working 4 kinda makes me think of a lesser version of the B.P.R.D.

  18. The hair on those dolls will be made from a lock of Josh's pubes.

  19. hmm… it really does sound interesting… are there constant flash backs / flash forwards? 😉

  20. At first, I didn't see "2004" and assumed Josh had grown hair (and Joel was just drawing real life Josh) and they were already talking about Fringe.

  21. I hate JJ Abrams because everything he touches eventually turns into a convoluted piece of shit. Its like he doesnt know how to stop himself.

  22. A la that comic a while back. Full circle…

  23. I hate JJ Abrams so much. Felicity? Down the tubes after two years. Alias? He left that after two years to go to Lost, which he left after two years to go do Mission Impossible 3. And then he did CLOVERFIELD which, um. 'Nuff said. Now he's touching STAR TREK and putting Zachary Quinto in it, who's only claim to fame is scowling and having the biggest eyebrows KNOWN from here to the 23rd century.

    Alias isn't an acronym, either.

  24. But of course!

  25. Someone with good photoshop skills has to put Josh's face on Roz Russell.

  27. at this point… i'm only watching Fringe for Walter… I <3 Walter.

  28. I'm sure Fringe is a good show, but there are just way too many shows on right now. It's hard enough to keep up with the shows that I already like; I don't have time to get into another one.

  29. Works every time, doesn't it? What's so funny about blood, anyway? It really shouldn't be funny, but it is. It's like when someone farts and sneezes at the same time – pooping your pants isn't funny, but it is.

  31. Camilla Bell's eyebrows beg to differ. As well as Peter Gallagher.

  32. Yeah, I've seen the Flickr of the seventh horseman.

  33. Im just glad I'm not the only one that wears the same exact clothes I was wearing +4 years ago.

    On another note not at all related to this, I almost pounded my aunts face into a jelly, today, like 40 mins ago. But it would have been for a good reason, she made me miss the first hour of Sunny. Well not the whole hour, the last 40 mins but still, she would have deserved it and I would have loved it. So instead of TWO FULL HOURS of Sunny, I now get 1 hour 20 mins.

  34. Not sure where you are, but we only got one hour. A subpar "Manhunters" and a pretty good "Gas Crisis"

  35. OMG Chalie was Merry! Never realized that. He looked familiar though…

    Reply
  36. Even if you didnt mean to type "Chalie" it made me read it the way Claire said it, so I laughed.
