Fringe ‘The End of All Things’ Review!

Fringe ‘The End of All Things’ Review!

Fringe has been much in the news lately, rumors are plenty about it getting canceled after this season but many more allude to a shortened fifth season that will follow. If the producers continue than the show will get the magic number of 100 that is the usual benchmark for syndication. So far season 4 has been a mixed bag, with episodes being notably dumbed down as to not alienate audiences. The ratings seem to have leveled off at 3 million...

Fringe ‘The End of all Things’ Preview!

So far season 4 of Fringe hasn’t been all that captivating. It has been OK in a time when just being OK isn’t really good enough. Last weeks ratings of Fringe once again dipped under the three million mark with a viewer rating of 2.99 million. This weeks episode of Fringe is entitled ‘The end of all things’ and is focused on the mythology. In some respects I am becoming rather tired with the mythology, it isn’t as captivating as it once...

Fringe ‘A Better Human Being’ review!

Fringe ‘A Better Human Being’ review!

‘A Better Human Being’ is a very character driven episode of Fringe, after a season where this kind of story telling alternated with action-scenes it is pleasant to finally see progression in the characters. The relationship between Olivia and Peter is the main driving force behind the character development but it certainly also affects Walter Bishop, his character is a lot more focused in this episode and even chastises Peter for what he believes to be a bad influence on Olivia....

Fringe ‘A Better Human Being’ Preview!

After last weeks cliff-hanger ending we are all keen to see what happens between Peter and Olivia. Will she keep any memory from the present or are they all replaced with those from the previous timeline. Of course the business with David Robert Jones continuous and between the two plot threads we sure get good TV. unfortunately the same cannot be said for the ratings, in the last few weeks they seemed to be stabilizing but with last weeks episode went down again...

Fringe ‘Welcome to Westfield’ review!

Fringe ‘Welcome to Westfield’ review!

Like many Fringe episodes, this one is difficult to review. The premise of the episode is a mystery in the spirit of those found on The X-files that needs to be solved but the episode becomes less interesting when the mystery disappears and instead a familiar conclusion takes its place. As for the story… ‘Welcome to Westfield’ starts of with a dream, one in which Olivia and Peter are making love and whisper to each other that they love each other. The surprise comes when the viewer discovers that this is not...

Fringe’s Future + Anna Torv set photos!

In an interview with website givememyremote.com executive producer Jeff Pinkner discusses tonight’s episode ‘Welcome to Westfield’, the love triangle between Olivia, Peter and Lincoln and the future of the series. According to Pinkner tonight’s episode is most definitely not a ‘bottle show’ and fans will really like it (well that alright then). As far as the love triangle goes Pinker admits that this Olivia is not the same Olivia from before the time shift and as for any relation between Peter and Olivia...

Fringe ‘Welcome to Westfield’ Preview!

Next weeks episode of Fringe is entitled ‘Welcome to Westfield’, a title that I believe is an homage to the Half Life 2 level ‘We don’t go to Ravenholm’. Here is the press release… THE FRINGE TEAM GETS TRAPPED ON AN ALL-NEW “FRINGE” FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 10, ON FOX Peter, Olivia and Walter come face to face with a mysterious and terrifying Fringe event as they get trapped in a town that there’s no escaping from in the all-new “Welcome to Westfield” episode of...

Fringe ‘Making Angels’ Review!

Fringe ‘Making Angels’ Review!

This weeks episode of Fringe was highly anticipated by fans as it was the first Astrid-centric episode. The episode was a slight disappointment as the issues surrounding the alternate Astrid weren’t all that clear. The main storyline of the murderer who tried to save people from a terrible future also fell a little flat, and for a reason that kind of mystified me. As for the story… This weeks episode is called ‘Making Angels’ and is a reference to the main...

Fringe ‘Making Angels’ preview! Finally a Astrid-centric episode!

Fringe ‘Making Angels’ preview! Finally a Astrid-centric episode!

This weeks episode of Fringe is entitled ‘Making Angels’ and will feature agent Astrid Farnsworth (A.K.A Astro) as its centric character. Astrid is of course played by actress Jasika Nicole whose role on the show has always been a fan favorite but has been until now that of the eternal supporting character. So what is in store now for Fringe? A Nina-centric episode? What about Broyles? Perhaps we might even see more of their relationship. This episode is definitely designed to give the...

Fringe ‘Forced Perspective’ review!

Fringe ‘Forced Perspective’ review!

This weeks episode of Fringe is entitled ‘Forced Perspective’ and is a change of pace as it only deals with the mythology in the secondary plot and focuses instead on a more drama laden plot of a girl who sees flashes of people dying. With Fringe the mythology plots are often interrupted to give us a ‘monster of the week’ episode which are often a ‘hit or miss’ affaire. This weeks episode lies somewhere in the middle because despite it having...

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...

Fringe ‘Enemy of my enemy’ review!

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...

Fringe ‘Enemy of My Enemy’ Preview!

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...

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...
