Welcome to the Classic Cult TV Club, (CCtvC), with Justin, Janette, Alex, and Lisa.
The “culters” continue with their series of cult classics featuring investigation of “supernatural” events. The definition of supernatural has been questioned hence the quotation marks. This podcast looks at a more recent series to touch on the area which we vaguely define as “supernatural”, hence going under the “Special” heading. Fringe was produced in the “noughties” and quickly acquired classic cult status.
So how does Fringe address the “paranormal”, and is it worthy of the cult status it has acquired? Though only ten years old is it dated and will it be likely to survive the further test of time?
