News of the Day -- Tuesday, June 24

+ Via Ain't It Cool News, a preview write-up of J.J. Abrams' fall pilot "Fringe," a sci-fi FBI show. By all accounts, it sounds pretty awesome. Thanks to Alyson for the tip!

+ If you're in the Columbus, Ohio area this week, don't forget to check out The 2008 Origins Game Fair. It's a huge, five-day, 24-hour a day gaming event starting tomorrow and running through Sunday. The husband and I will be checking it out this weekend, and I'm totally looking forward to it.

+ Report from the LA Film Festival on The X-Files panel with Chris Carter, Frank Spotnitz and the luscious Mr. Duchovny. I wasn't really that thrilled with the clip they described. It made me just a tad bit worried about how good this movie is going to be. Honestly, though, who cares about quality at this point? I just want my two favorite FBI agents on the big screen again.

+ Top Ten British Crop Circles! This alien wants us to recycle:

(Okay, it's not an exact recycling symbol but it looks pretty darn close, right?)

I still say JJ Abrams has been trying to make a better X-Files with both Alias and Lost (sorry JJ, can't be done, Chris Carter is God when it comes to whacked out mythology/conspiracy theory shows), but I think Fringe has promise. I'm looking forward to giving it a shot.

Don't hold your breath for the X-Files. I hear it's 90 minutes of the two of them behind TV trays taking their medication and watching "their shows." Duchovny does his own stunts, though.

Ah, Stephen, always the optimist! :) I'm actually okay with that plot as long as Duchovny does it with sarcasm and a healthy smirk on his face.
