FRINGE Series Finale Recap: ‘Liberty’/’An Enemy of Fate’

January 18, 2013 by  
Filed under Fringe Recap

Don’t you know? All good stories start with “once upon a time” and end with “happily ever after!” – Ella, “Brown Betty” And so, we’ve reached the end of FRINGE. In season 2’s “Brown Betty,” Walter tried to end the musical noir tale he was telling Ella, Olivia’s niece, in a pretty morbid way. But […]

FRINGE Recap: ‘The Boy Must Live’

As we draw very close to FRINGE’s final hours — the last two episodes of the entire series air next Friday — I’m so glad I’ve had a couple weeks to mull over what went down and what that could possibly mean for the course of the show.

FRINGE Recap: ‘Black Blotter’

December 15, 2012 by  
Filed under Fringe Recap

I…don’t even know where to start with Friday’s episode of FRINGE. I suppose that’s a good thing, really. Right now my brain is everywhere and nowhere and very much still in the immediate “WTF did I just see?” phase, so my thoughts are incredibly jumbled. Which given what the heck we saw in “Black Blotter” […]

FRINGE Recap: ‘The Human Kind’

December 8, 2012 by  
Filed under Fringe Recap

Despite some of the FRINGE episode titles being super literal this season, I was a little afraid to get too attached to tonight’s title. (“The Human Kind,” in case you missed this post’s headline or any of the other posts I wrote about the show this week.) Was it about Peter’s rapidly deteriorating humanity? Olivia’s […]

FRINGE Recap: ‘Five-Twenty-Ten’

November 16, 2012 by  
Filed under Fringe Recap

This. This is what I want from a FRINGE episode. It may be oversimplifying things, but Nina Sharp was very much needed this season. I get that she’s one of the “minor” regular characters, but look at what she brought to this episode. Heck, at the very least, thanks to her presence, we touched more […]

FRINGE Recap: ‘Through the Looking Glass and What Walter Found There’

November 9, 2012 by  
Filed under Fringe Recap

So, I’m really torn about “Through the Looking Glass and What Walter Found There.” Much like “The Recordist,” I feel like the reaction to this episode has been split. Some delighted in the smaller moments, the callbacks to the things probably only the most hardcore fans would get, etc. Others seem to be frustrated with […]

FRINGE Recap: ‘An Origin Story’

November 3, 2012 by  
Filed under Fringe Recap

Back when Peter Bishop was wiped from existence at the end of FRINGE season 3, some fans (including LOST co-creator Damon Lindelof) believed the way he’d be worked back into the show would be by him becoming an Observer. Heck, Joshua Jackson (Peter) even came out at that year’s Comic-Con panel dressed in full Observer […]

FRINGE Recap: ‘The Bullet That Saved the World’

[Warning: This post contains spoilers for the FRINGE episode, “The Bullet That Saved the World.” If you haven’t seen it yet, go watch it now and then come back to read our recap.] Warning: I think tonight’s episode of FRINGE put me squarely in level 10 of trauma. We’ll get to what led up to […]

FRINGE Recap: ‘The Recordist’

October 13, 2012 by  
Filed under Fringe Recap

I’m so very curious to hear what you guys thought of Friday’s episode of FRINGE, “The Recordist,” because I can’t remember a time when a non-myth heavy/season finale hour of the show split my friends so much in terms of how they felt about it. As for me, I fall somewhere in the middle. I […]

FRINGE Recap: ‘In Absentia’

Filed under Fringe Recap

For as much as went down in “In Absentia,” there isn’t a whole lot to recap, so instead, I wanted to focus in on a couple of things that have been nagging in my brain in the days that have passed since I first saw the episode…

FRINGE Season Premiere Recap: ‘Transilience Thought Unifier Model-11’

We’re back to the future in FRINGE’s final season premiere, picking up the morning after season 4’s “Letters of Transit” left off.

FRINGE Season 4 Finale Recap: ‘Brave New World, Part 2’

May 12, 2012 by  
Filed under Fringe Recap

It’s very weird to write about a FRINGE finale and not immediately have the urge to jump to talking about the ending that blew my mind. I get the reasoning of why the writers decided to go down this road (and I respect them for doing what felt natural for this arc and these characters), […]

FRINGE Recap: ‘Brave New World, Part 1’

May 5, 2012 by  
Filed under Fringe Recap

You know those moments where you feel a show has been leading up to something for a while and finally they tip their hand just the teeniest of bits? Well, welcome to FRINGE’s “Brave New World, Part 1.” If you haven’t watched it, go watch it now! If you have, maybe push that lemon cake […]

FRINGE Recap: ‘Worlds Apart’

April 27, 2012 by  
Filed under Fringe Recap

First of all, let’s start this off with a “yay” for FRINGE’s fifth season renewal! It’s bittersweet the end is near, but I’m so glad things will get the chance to properly be wrapped up. But before we get to season 5, we still have to survive season 4. So let’s get to talking about […]
