TV show description:
This sci-fi drama, created by J.J. Abrams (Lost, Alias, Felicity), begins at Logan Airport in Boston. Flight 627 from Hamburg, Germany, has just arrived after having flown through an electrical storm. When FBI Special Agent Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv) and her partner John Smith (Mark Valley) are summoned to the airport, co-worker Charlie Francis (Kirk Acevedo) informs them that the flight has landed via autopilot. Everyone onboard is dead and their organs seem to have melted.

Homeland Security Chief Phillip Broyles (Lance Reddick) immediately suspects terrorism and wants Olivia and John to investigate two Middleastern men who’d been seen at the airport handing a Caucasian man a suitcase. While investigating a storage facility, an explosion occurs, sending John to the hospital with symptoms similar to those from flight 627. Olivia researches John’s condition in order save him and recovers the name of a former government researcher of fringe science, Dr. Walter Bishop (John Noble).

Dr. Bishop’s been institutionalized for the past 17 years after an experiment in his lab caused a lab assistant’s death. With the help of his estranged son, Peter (Joshua Jackson), she recruits Dr. Bishop to help her solve the current flesh eating phenomenon. Their examination into the epidemic leads them to Massive Dynamic, a multi-billion dollar corporation. The mysterious Nina Sharp (Blair Brown) is the executive director of the company’s fringe division and stonewalls outside inquiries.

Under the auspices of Broyles, Olivia, Dr. Bishop, Peter, and lab assistant Astrid Farnsworth (Jasika Nicole) soon discover that what happened on a runway at Logan Airport is part of a much bigger mystery. While trying to piece together what is going on, the team encounters additional strange occurrences like genetic mutations, rapid aging, levitation, reanimation, and telepathy.

This show should have NEVER been canceled. They leave on some crazy comedy that isn’t really funny. Then take off a show that is really good, and could have lasted as long as “Lost” or maybe longer. Please bring it back with the original cast, including Nina Sharp. Now the Observers are gone. I would love it if you would.
