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. There is of course and episode specific story arc, this week it is a Doctor Franks who has experimented with...

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 to 3.05 million. This weeks episode of Fringe is entitled ‘A Better Human Being’ and here is its press release...

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 Peters dream from a life before the time shift but is the Olivia’s dream. It is an allusion to the fact that...

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 he said ‘there are bumps in the road’. As for the future of the show Pinker says it has a...

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 airing Friday, Feb. 10 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

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 antagonist named Neill (played by Chin Han from The Dark Knight) who can see into the future after he has taken...

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 series more life and deal with its minor quirks, and I aint complaining. The murder case that this episode will be...

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 en engrossing storyline it is at times rather slow, also the fact that last week’s saw the return of David...

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!

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!

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 ‘Back to Where You’ve Never Been’ promo video!

On January 13th Fringe is set to return with the episode ‘Back to Where You’ve Never Been’, this episode was originally set to air last year as the mid-season finale but got bumped and might have been a huge error for a series that is struggling in the ratings. It seems Fox was of the same mind and has since released three promo trailer for the forthcoming episode. I have seen the last promo and I must say it’s insane! And I guess you agree with me on that one! Also a few promo stills, they are not high res unfortunately…

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...
