As promised on Friday, I am reblogging about the latest installment of Fox’s Sci-fi drama Fringe. Original post here but I imagine things that I spoke out then will also be more thoroughly discussed in this post.

"Letters of Transit" offered viewers a look at what happens when the Observers stop observing and start taking action. In 2036, the observers are in control and have split humanity into natives and loyalists. The original Fringe team has been missing for decades and the Fringe Division that survived remained so as a police department of sorts to keep the "natives" in check while being under the control of the Observers.

The episode offered what I believe to be one of the best of the series thus far. The episode deepened the show’s mythology and offered a new storytelling device. While I thoroughly enjoyed the episode, I don’t understand the relevance of it at this point int he season. Similarly it didn’t feel finished or complete. I’m not sure if it was meant to be 90 minutes or a two hour episode, but it needs more. I would love to see this episode act as a platform for a series of episodes, or even an entire season.

I need to start by addressing the fact that I LOVE that this show changes the opening for each new timeline, version/our understanding of the world(s) in question. Season one’s opening will always be my favorite, but I really enjoyed the 2036 future. Watch it here. It perfectly represented the future and feel of the episode. The show is more creative and pays more attention to detail than any other show on television at the moment. Fringe is quality television. I don’t understand why it doesn’t have a larger fan base.
