I’m a little late to the "Fringe" party. A case of the flu left me the chance to catch up. I blew through the first season in four days and I’m on to the second. To my intense instinctual outrage there was a new female character.

Now, I look on new male characters with a similar suspicion, but they never bring out the urge to growl as much as females do. I happen to love female characters when they’re done well. I’ve been burned by television, YA novels, and anime before with a number of vacuous holes they called heroines. As a result, I’m very choosy when it comes to my female character. For the most part if a female character is introduced in the first novel or season, I will give them the benefit of the doubt, but it’s always a lot harder to introduce any new character when the ball is already rolling.

Olivia Dunham, the main point of view character for the first season of Fringe, did not disappoint. She had a lot of personal drama that crossed over into her business life but it didn’t seem to overtake her perspective of cases. She was also a bad ass at combat while the main male characters were more the brainy types. Refreshing change there.

First episode of season 2 leaves Olivia brain dead and has a little upstart NY cop in her place, trying to investigate and join the Fringe Division. Immediately I was on guard.

Was this chick going to join the team? Try to replace Olivia? Mack on Peter?
