|The ``Fringe Team'' (an FBI agent, a mad scientist and his son) investigate a series of kidnappings in which the victim is hypnotized with red and green lights. In each case, the victim was about to solve some equation in their area of expertise when they vanished, and they are each a bit crazy when they reappear. The latest kidnapping is different in that the victim is a young music prodigy. It turns out that his musical ability is sufficiently mathematical to solve the bad guy's equation, allowing him to pass through solid matter.
I know that creator J.J. Abrams said that this show was going to be more accessible than his hit Lost, but I still can't make sense out of it.
