The poor airline industry. As if rising gas prices, increased security measures and constant cost-cutting were not enough, now there's another J.J. Abrams pilot. Travelers who have finally shaken the anxiety-provoking images of cult-inducing "Lost" can look forward to a whole new set of phobias thanks to the opening moments of Abrams' new show, "Fringe." As lightning crackles around an international flight to Boston, a wild-eyed passenger injects himself with something one can only hope is a tranquilizer, and then next thing you know . . . well, I don't want to spoil anything for the 19 people who haven't seen the pilot online, but it results in the assemblage of every law enforcement agency in the country donning hazmat suits.

But on a recent summer evening, the Australian actress, who plays FBI Special Agent Olivia Dunham on Fox's highly anticipated new drama "Fringe," was peering down at a fleshy, mottled heart lying on a metal examination table on the set of a gloomy basement laboratory. Suddenly, the organ jolted to life, sending red rivulets spurting into the air. Looks like Torv better get used to working with blood and guts. If the first glimpses of "Fringe" are any indication, the sci-fi mystery is unstinting in its portrayal of the havoc caused when science runs amok.

The Television Critics Assn. Press Tour, the semiannual gathering of television journalists from around the country that began July 8, continues at the Beverly Hilton. We offer these dispatches. -- J.J. Abrams learned a lesson from "Alias." It hit him when he was at a friend's house one day and an episode of the ABC spy vs. spy drama was on television. Abrams, the show's executive producer, couldn't follow what was going on. "Literally, it was impenetrable," he said. So for his newest project, Fox's mystery "Fringe," the writer-producer took a different tack.
