Fringe being on Fridays has never been a problem for me to review, but it seems these past few weeks something always comes up. I apologize.
Five-Twenty-Ten brings a few more pieces of the story into focus.
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.
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.
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.
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.
