Entertaining episode, tonight. The Observer feels like a Cigarette-Smoking-Man rip-off, though.
Personally he seemed different enough from CSM for me not to care, his got enough interesting angles going on, and I don't even think he's full analogous.
fringe gets a full 22 episode season.
which is good news, cause I'm starting to really get into this show.
then again, if the screen actors guild strike, which it looks like they will be, that will suck.
Fun episode so far. I like the "mystery du jour."
So, TVNZ has pulled season 2 after 6 or so episodes, so I'm catching up by other means. The show's been getting steadily better, and the previous 2 episodes I watched were really good.
Sat down last night to watch season 2, ep 11 "Unearthed" about some teenage girl who gets possessed by the soul of a russian speaking murdered wife-beating marine, when all of a sudden AAAARRRRRGGGHHHHH!
WTF? Airing a terrible episode dropped from season one in the middle of season two, right when he story is really building momentum is bad enough, but one where one of the recurring characters from season one appears who has been killed off??? I know it's Fringe, and you can't rule that kind of stuff from actually happening in the plot, but for it to happen due to an old episode being plonked in the middle of a new season is appalling.
Anyway, just ranting at this stupidity. Please HTR spoilers for Seasons 2 & 3 if you want to discuss the newer episodes.
Ugh. The next episode 'Jumanji' sucked as well. Deformed people who lived in a small town near a miltary base. These Monster of the Week episodes aren't a patch on the Mythology ones. At least X-Files Monster of the Week episodes were fun.
I want Nimoy, And Massive Dynamic and parallel universes pls.
So I've had an interesting journey with Fringe. I watched the first third of the first season then thought it was going to be an obvious cancellation.
I watched the rest of the first season on DVDs recently, and the finale with the WTC had me hooked. I was assured by someone else on this board that things get really good in the second season.... at first, I was like... "What? It's just more monster-of-the-hour stuff so far..."
But damn if it doesn't get interesting right after the halfway mark.
It took a while for the show to figure out what it was really about, but now it's really found that groove and it's building up into an excellent stride. In an earlier post I mentioned that Nina Sharp was the most interesting character, but now I find the reverse to be true... she's one of the least interesting now. All the leads are far more compelling with some excellent potential (alternates included). It's rare for all of a show's main characters to have such promise like that.
Haven't seen the latest, but last week was average. Flashback ep. the week before that was excellent though. Need more crossover eps, Fauxlivia is hot. Need to pick up the pace re: the machine too - seems the mythology arc is stagnating.
Yeah the first part of season one is boring, then it gets good for a while, then boring for the first half of season two, before really becoming a blockbuster in the second half. Season three is pretty consistently great tho.
4th season confirmed!
I just finished the first two episodes of this show. Question: Does the assistant to the FBI agent ever become an actual character or do anything? Or does she just continue being a piece of movable scenery? I'm sort of confused about what her role on the show is, as a good portion of extras in any given episode have more lines of dialogue than she does.
You like her, don't you?
Yes and no. They use her more as time goes on but she's still chronically underused.
What do you mean by "like?"
Astrid is a hottie fo sho.
Jasika Nicole is a lesbian, sorry bros.
Well, that was amusing. Goodbye Nimoy.
Animation was fun, pity nobody actually looked like their characters (and, yes, I'm sure it was all rotoscoped - just all looked a bit off).
Machine 1 : Pacey 0
Watching the new ep now and may I just say:
Also did anyone else see "Water" (along with "hope") in the new titles? I lold.
Haha, yeah! I said "did that say water?" and rewound, and that's when we noticed "hope." I picked up on "First People" before they became a part of the mythology in the show, so I always keep an eye on those words for little clues.
Gotta say, the first thing I thought of during the last scene was the Doctor disappearing into the Crack at the end of series 5 of Doctor Who, but there's lots of other stuff going on that I'm excited about too. Olivia, Fauxlivia, Walter, and Walternate all in the same room should make for a heck of a season-opener next year.
Great episode last night... up until the ending.
