Sneak Peek: Dollhouse and Fringe

Two new TV shows I'm eagerly waiting for are Joss Whedon's Dollhouse and JJ Abrams' Fringe, both shows will be airing on Fox next season.

ECHO (Dushku) is an "Active," a member of a highly illegal and underground group who have had their personalities wiped clean so they can be imprinted with any number of new personas. Confined to a secret facility known as the "Dollhouse".

· Dichen Lachman as Sierra
· Eliza Dushku as Echo
· Enver Gjokaj as Victor
· Fran Kranz as Topher Brink
· Harry Lennix as Boyd Langton
· Olivia Williams as Adelle DeWitt
· Tahmoh Penikett as Paul Smith

When an international flight lands at Boston's Logan Airport and the passengers and crew have all died grisly deaths, FBI Special Agent OLIVIA DUNHAM (newcomer Anna Torv) is called in to investigate. After her partner, Special Agent JOHN SCOTT (Mark Valley, "Boston Legal"), is nearly killed during the investigation, a desperate Olivia searches frantically for someone to help, leading her to DR. WALTER BISHOP (John Noble, "Lord of the Rings"), our generation's Einstein. There's only one catch: he's been institutionalized for the last 20 years, and the only way to question him requires pulling his estranged son PETER (Joshua Jackson, "Dawson's Creek") in to help.

· Anna Torv as Olivia Dunham
· Blair Brown as Nina Sharp
· Jasika Nicole as Astrid Farnsworth
· John Noble as Walter Bishop
· Joshua Jackson as Peter Bishop
· Kirk Acevedo as Charlie Francis
· Lance Reddick as Phillip Broyles
· Mark Valley as John Scott

Are you excited or what? Fringe has all this science talk, I'm sure my tiny TV brain will end up getting very confused again.
