Fringe ‘Forced Perspective’ Preview!

Fringe ‘Forced Perspective’ Preview!

Friday’s episode of Fringe is called ‘Forced Perspective’ and sees the return of the Observers who warn Olivia of her impending death. The episode does seem to have rather familiar elements, I hope it will manage to beat expectations otherwise Fringe will be back on its rating offramp. Here is the full press release… A MYSTERIOUS GIRL CAN SEE THE FUTURE ON AN ALL-NEW “FRINGE” FRIDAY, JANUARY 27, ON FOX Olivia continues to cope with the ominous warning from the Observers, while Peter and the team track a girl with the mysterious ability to predict death in the all-new “Forced...

Fringe ‘Enemy of my enemy’ review!

This weeks episode of Fringe sees the return of David Robert Jones which raises the boiling point in a way that seems like he never left. The plot this time makes my head spin and frankly that is what I am looking for in a Fringe episode. As for the story… Following from “Back to Where You’ve Never Been“, the alternate universe’s Olivia (Anna Torv) and Lincoln (Seth Gabel) track down David Robert Jones (Jared Harris) to a warehouse, unaware that Colonel Broyles (Lance Reddick) had alerted Jones to their arrival. Jones waits until Olivia and Lincoln arrive before destroying...

Fringe ‘Enemy of My Enemy’ Preview!

Next friday’s episode of Fringe is entitled ‘Enemy of My Enemy’ and sees the return of David Robert Jones (played by Jared Harris) who was the main antagonist in the first season. I hope his character will infuse some life into the series as the viewer ratings remain rock-bottom low. Last weeks episode had only 2.89 million on the Nielsen score as opposed to all time low of 2.88 for the episode before Christmas. Here is the press release… FRINGE DIVISION FACES NEW CHALLENGES ON AN ALL-NEW “FRINGE” FRIDAY, JANUARY 20, ON FOX Peter’s visit to the other side intensifies as the...

Fringe ‘Back to where you’ve never been’ review!

Fringe ‘Back to where you’ve never been’ review!

Fringe is Back! During the last two weeks my Fringe withdrawal symptoms have definitely started to show, this weeks return was also highly anticipated by fans and I guess we weren’t disappointed. Disappointing was however the news that Fringe wasn’t doing well in the ratings and as such won’t be back for a fifth season if things aren’t turned around by its creative staff. As for this weeks episode of Fringe, its entitled ‘Back to where you’ve never been’ and sets story firmly back on its rails. As for the story… Peter fails to gain the support of the prime...

Fringe almost cancelled!

Fringe almost cancelled!

Fear not, the title says ‘almost’ cancelled that doesn’t mean it hasn’t. At this time of the year there is always a lot of buzz going on which shows gets renewed and which get cancelled. At a press conference top Fox executives said that Fringe at the moment was a money loser and might get axed. However, they also said they will first engage the production staff to see if there is a way out. In the word of one Fox executive… ‘It is too early to start the mail campaign’. Various suggestions have been put forth but first they...

New Fringe promo’s for ‘Back To Where You’ve Never Been’

The first bunch of episodes of Fringe have so far been mixed, personally I didnt think they were that engaging and catered too much to larger audience with their simplified plots. Subsequently it came as no surprise that viewer ratings started to drop. If things couldn’t be made any worse baseball got in the way of the ordinary program schedule. Thus the midseason finale was bumped to january 13th and we were stuck with a not so ‘Cliffhanger’ episode. Fears are  that viewers will continue to tune out. Rumors that this will be Fringe’s finals season are common. I am willing to give it a shot, I hope FOX...

Fringe – Back to Where You’ve Never Been preview!

Last week’s episode of Fringe entitled Wallflower was the last episode before the shows brief hiatus that lasts until january 13th. sadly, because of the baseball competition a couple of weeks back Fringe didn’t have the proper cliffhanger ending that was needed, indeed the last episode though good ended a bit disapointing. Here’s hoping viewers won’t tune out completely… As far as the next episode is concerned, there are as of yet no stills available but there is a promo video. And here is an older press release (with dates that no longer apply)… In the Fall Finale, Olivia and...

Fringe ‘Wallflower’ preview!

Fringe ‘Wallflower’ preview!

Well, after 7 episodes ending with this weeks ‘Wallflower’ Fringe will take a hiatus and won’t be back until january. Which is strange as this season has only just starting to get interesting. Fringe’s creative team however should use the hiatus to try and rethink their aproach to this season because so far it has been a tad dull. The promise of an end to long story arcs hasn’t been fulfiled either as Peter’s disapearance and return is still the weekly plot. As for today’s episode of Fringe. While Olivia copes with migraines, she and her team investigate an invisible...

Fringe season 4 Alone In The World review!

Fringe season 4 Alone In The World review!

This week’s episode of Fringe is a bit of a mixed bag, it is essentially a ‘monster-of-the-week episode’ but it also moves the storyline of Peter’s disapearance further in a proper way. As for the plot… It begins by showing two boys chasing another even younger boy, evidently one of the boys was slighted and seeks revenge. The younger boy hides out in a abandoned sewer drain and the two other young boys chase after him. Just as one of the boy is set to beat up the boy the they were chasing both of the bullies are grabbed by...

Fringe season 4 ‘Neither here nor there’ review!

Fringe season 4 ‘Neither here nor there’ review!

Fringe is back for another season. After the series started slipping in the viewer ratings Fringe producers have promised less convaluted plot lines and fewer story arcs, they are going as far as saying that season 4 will be a kind of reboot for Fringe. That is all well and good, but its not true for the first episode of season 4 entitled ‘Neither here not there’ (aptly named) as it continues the storyline of season 3 during which the two Fringe alternate realities were partly merged allowing continous contact between them to resolve their conflicts. This fact, abd the...

Fringe season 4 preview!

Fringe season 4 preview!

On the 23rd of september Fringe will be back for another season of 22 episodes. Last season didn’t do too well in the ratings and ever since season 2 there have been rumours of cancellation which have all been subsequently disputed most vigorously by Fox. However, with an average viewership of season 3 of less than 4 million the show has definitely taken a hit from the high days when viewership regularly topped 9 million. One thing season 4 will try to do differently is it will try not to alienate viewers with a complex story arc, a problem that even plagued ‘Lost’...
