Episode five, and the countdown continues. The final episode of Fringe is set to air January 18, 2013 in a two part finale. (My heart is already breaking).
I don’t want the show to end, and further more, I’m worried it won’t end how I envision it. But isn’t that the risk we take as viewers. We have to trust the writers, we’ve never met, to bring closure to us. While they can’t appease everyone, I do hope that they do justice to the series.
"The Recordist" marks the third episode of the final season of Fringe. While it was a good episode, I can’t say I loved it for one simple reason. The Fringe countdown clock is running. Each week the countdown ticks less and less. I love this show, and think it is great that even in the final season they continue to expand thinga. However, I can’t appreciate those things in the same way now. If we had more time, I would be all for meeting new characters and new stories, but with such a finite amount of time left, I just want Walter, Peter and Olivia (Astrid too, I suppose). I just want the characters I’ve come to love in the past four seasons to have as much screen time as possible.
After tonight’s season five premiere episode, only 12 remain before the show draws to a close. I am very grateful to Fox for giving us these additional 13 episodes, but I’d be lying if I didn’t say I had hoped for more. Fringe was the one post-Lost show that really felt right. It by no means replaced Lost, but it became a staple in my television viewing schedule. I’m not sure what I’m going to do without it. It feels weird just thinking about it.
I have all the faith in the world that the writers can wrap it up in a manner worthy of the series, but I worry that they will not be able to answer all the questions they have put forward. Now that we are in 2036, I’m curious how many of the past-present (2012) storylines will fall through, or if they stop cold. I would very much be interested in what happened between 2012 and 2015 and then 2015 to future-present, 2036.
I’m torn on if writing a review for this episode would be best or I should just keep it simple. I’m currently opting for keeping it simple but with some criticism? I’m trying for some middle ground. I really don’t want to critique what could have been our last episode of Fringe ever. I feel like I should just be grateful to Fox for giving us another thirteen episodes, and not complain about anything. At the same time, it is not our last episode, and I have a few thoughts.
In this game of skill one must have above all else, Patience. The board changes, but very slowly. The art of chess, the art is knowing when a piece is most valuable and then, in that very moment, being willing to sacrifice it. For in the vacuum created by the loss of what is most precious, opportunity abounds, influences maximize, and desire becomes destiny. For example, on this board, the most valuable piece is the bishop. Therefore, for the game to be won…
I’ve been keeping a close track on all the renewal/cancellation rumors for Fringe’s fifth season, and from what I’ve been reading a thirteen episode final season seems promising. Lets all keep our fingers crossed that this in fact does happen. While I’d much prefer a full twenty-two episodes, thirteen is enough to keep it a live just a bit more. It gives the writers notice that this is it, so they can make sure they end it fully how they want it to end. It also will mean Fringe will hit the 100 episode mark which it is eligible to go into syndication. Achieving that many episodes for this series would be a spectacular feat for the series and a testament to its fanbase. So lets keep our thoughts positive, and continue to spread the word of #Fringe. As always #SaveFringe.
I hate that ratings for this series are so low. I watch a lot of television, I don’t even write about 1/3 of what I watch, but Fringe is easily one of the best, smartest series. It deserves more viewers. Although I had concerns about the direction the season was taking early on, the past several weeks have proven those concerns irrelevant over and over again. “The Consultant” continues to impress and bring season four to an amazing close.
(Possibly) only five more episodes of Fox’s Fringe left ever. This is a fact that makes me very nervous and sad. I have complete faith the writers can bring the series to a reasonable close within those dates, but there’s so much potential still left in the two worlds. I do not want it to end. I don’t want these people to leave my life. The past four years have been incredible, and if this is it, I will truly miss them. I hope Fox lets us know soon. I rather know sooner than later, as I’m sure the cast and crew would as well. We all deserve an answer. #SaveFringe Fox, Save it!
Now onto the weekly review, featuring a double dose of our favorite Agent Lincoln Lee.
Ever since Peter disappeared at the end of last season, and we were introduced to the altered timeline at the beginning of this season, I was always curious how the Fringe Divisions cases were the same or different due to the change. It has taken the majority of the season, but finally Fringe delivers what I’d been hoping for, and I was not disappointed.
"Nothing as it Seems" show how certain aspects of the universe outside Fringe Division and Massive Dynamic has changed. It seems in the Peter-less timeline, the villains were gaining the upper hand (slowly). David Robert Jones seems to finally be making a mark on things.
Initially upon viewing the latest episode of Fringe entitled “The End of All Things,” I had decided I wasn’t going to review the episode. I wanted to keep my thoughts to myself and let them grow over the next month without the show. However, after giving it some thought, I’ve decided to compromise by discussing some thoughts, concerns, theories and questions about “The End of All Things” without speaking to all of them.

"A Better Human Being" was an exhilarating hour of television. It kept a quick pace throughout while telling a number of different subplots.
