15 More Beefcake Stars of "Fringe"
But at least there's substantial beefcake, a never-ending parade of musclemen in guest roles. We're up to Season 4.
1. Episode 1: Neither Here Nor There: FBI Agent Peter (read: Mulder) has saved the two parallel universes from imploding, but he's been erased from history, leaving his father, Walter, and True Love, Olivia (read: Scully), with inexplicable gaps in their lives. Meanwhile swishy gay-stereotype agent Lincoln Lane (Seth Gabel) is distraught over the death of his partner, played by the hunky Joe Flanagan.
2. Episode 2: One Night in October: Lincoln Lane joins the Fringe Team to investigate paranormal phenomena, and gets a crush on Olivia. Not gay -- no surprise there. They try to stop a serial killer. Underwear model Daniel Arnold (left) plays Agent Perez.
4. Episode 4: Subject 9 is the muscular Cameron James (Chadwick Boseman, left), who can manipulate electromagnetic energy. Once on a date he pulled a girl's fillings out of her teeth.
6. Episode 6: And Those We Left Behind. The mystery involves Raymond, an electrical engineer, and his wife. (Remember the "My wife! My wife! My wife!" mantra?). But look for the muscular Chad Riley as an FBI Agent.
I don't have time to cover all of the underwear models and bodybuilders on the series, so let's fast forward.
More after the break.
10. Episode 13: A Better Human Being. Peter and Olivia investigate a mental patient who appears to be orchestrating murders. Stuntman and caveman Colby Chatard (left) plays Silbiger.
12. Episode 16: Nothing As It Seems. Lincoln (remember him?) is infected with a mysterious virus. At least this one doesn't make your head explode. Daniel Cudmore (left) plays Daniel Hicks.
It almost makes the disgusting head-explosions of the Serial Killer of the Week worthwhile.
But not the incessant chant of "aren't you glad gay people don't exist?"
