We're still a couple weeks away from the proper start of the new fall TV season, but the networks haven't completely forgotten their mandate to try and entertain. Fox's big idea? Re-broadcasts of the Fringe episode "The Road Not Taken" (this Thursday night) and Glee's pilot episode (this Friday night), with Twitter commentary from cast and crew members. Fans can follow along on-line—while providing commentary and questions of their own—or they can watch the Tweets scroll along the bottom of the television screen during the program. What insights will John Noble and Joshua Jackson add to a mind-blowing Fringe (in 140 characters or less)? Tune in later this week to find out.
