Fringe, a nice gory sci fi show based in modern times, that will kick your ass.
The shows is about an FBI agent Olivia Dunham, a mad scientist Walter Bishop, and his son Peter who work together in order to solve cases (the cases are often referred to as "the pattern") that are based around fringe science (teleportation, monsters, crazy shit). The cases are normally harmful to the lives of civilians and are usually attacks by a terrorist organization called the ZFT whose goal is to cause the technological singularity. Some where in this show comes a large company and devoloper of science Massive Dynamic, whose owner is Walter Bishops ex partner William Bell, who while working with Walter formed the nootropic drug that gives little kids x men style powers(controlling fire, telekenesis, making people kill themselves) this drug ties the ZFT to Olivia Dunham since she was tested on as a child and now they want her as a fighter for the technological revolution.
The protagonist of this story Olivia was transferred to the crazy department of the FBI after her partner and lovers face melted off by some virus that he paid for, also for a short time she shared memories with her dead boyfriend.
When she was a little girl Walter Bishop did experiments on her... yeah... that would give her the x men style powers later in life, she shows off these powers by turning lights off with her mind.
This man brings the crazy to the show, he is a mad scientist and many of his old inventions and creations are used by the enemy. He was sent to a insane asylum after killing some lab assistants and for using people as Guinea pigs.
Peter is Walters son, who is also a genius, but since he had daddy issues as a child (Walter probably "experimented" on him as well) he dropped out of school and became a degenerate. His main job on the show is to take care of his father and translate from crazy to English for the rest of the cast. Also he may have died as a child so his Dad opened a portal to another dimension and stole a living Peter.
