FRINGE: Over There, Part 1

Wow – where to begin??!!! What a killer episode. I loved every minute of it and cannot wait until next week to see how it all ends! The Grass is Greener Over There Walternate has taken Peter back to his home universe and I have to say, I can see no reason why Peter would […]

Fringe – Peter Bishop is Dangerous?

Please forgive me for the spottiness of my FRINGE postings as of late. Life has been throwing way too many curve balls at me, causing me to be completely behind on just about everything that I should be doing. The list of things that should take priority to this post is long, but I just […]

FRINGE: Olivia. In The Lab. With a Revolver.

This episode had me at the title. Who doesn’t love CLUE??!!! OK, maybe not everyone is a board game geek like me, but someone on the FRINGE writing staff must surely be – MONOPOLY references in “Jacksonville” and a Sam Weiss/Olivia Dunham CLUE match tonight – makes me want to revisit all things Parker Brothers! […]


Who would have thought that an episode entitled “Peter” would be possible without a single moment of Joshua Jackson? More to the point, who would have thought that I could enjoy a Josh Jackson-less episode so much? I see “Peter” as being the origin episode of FRINGE. Even though it presented us with a series […]

FRINGE: Jacksonville

When I saw last week’s preview, I got all caught up in the excitement of the “Winter Finale”. Winter Finale = big exiting episode with major happenings = good thing!! Right? Not entirely. Not when it means that there is not going to be another new episode until APRIL!!!! Forgive my rant, but I long […]

FRINGE: What Lies Below

When I was kid, my sister used to get a lot of nose bleeds. I don’t remembering my mom panicking about it. She would just tilt my sister’s head back and hold her nose closed with a towel until the bleeding stopped. This would SO not happen in my house today. If one of my […]

I love the Thursday night pairing of Bones and Fringe. Tonight was not the first time this season that I’ve thought that a Bones/Fringe cross-over wouldn’t be that far of a stretch. In the past few months, we’ve seen our friends at the Jeffersonian investigating chicken men, bodies of ash, and most recently, possible aliens. […]

FRINGE: Unearthed

I cannot believe that an entire month has gone by since I last posted something for Fringe! Let’s just say that something “suddenly came up” which caused me to miss the final two episodes of ’09. That, in addition to regular holiday madness, kept me from getting caught up until just last week. I’m definitely […]

FRINGE: August

First of all, can somebody explain to me why this episode was entitled “August”? I’m guessing that the reason is either (a) completely obvious and just escaping my little brain for no apparent reason or (b) a very minor detail that I failed to catch, likely because I could barely hear the TV over the […]

FRINGE: Of Human Action

Grrrrrr…this episode has completely caused me to get a song stuck in my head – Nerf Herder’s “5000 Ways to Die”. It’s not exactly a classic so I wouldn’t be surprised if you don’t know the lyrics. The ones that are now on repeat-play in my brain are “get in your car and drive real […]

FRINGE: Earthling

Can I just say that I was really creeped out by the opening scene of this episode? Maybe it struck a chord because today is my own wedding anniversary and the thought of my husband planning a nice surprise for me and then turning to dust in front of my very eyes is beyond horrific. […]

FRINGE: Dream Logic

My apologies to Gretchen and FRINGE fans. This has been sitting in a ‘drafts’ folder since the 17th.  Can I blame the pain meds? – Kath It is 8:00 Friday night and I just got around to watching last night’s episode of Fringe, thanks to a long list of things including (but not limited to) […]

FRINGE: Momentum Deferred

I’m going to be honest and admit that it was hard for me to make the decision to watch Fringe at its regularly scheduled time tonight. If it weren’t for this blog, I would have been glued to The Office for the big JAM wedding extravaganza. It’s not that I don’t consider Fringe to be […]

FRINGE: Fracture

After a seemingly un-Pattern related episode last week, “Fracture” brings us back into the thick of things. Fringe Science – The Cliff Notes Version A Philadelphia police officer receives a mysterious call, instructing him to walk into Suburban Station and meet a man in a trench coat. He takes the briefcase from the man and […]

FRINGE: Night of Desirable Objects

So did anyone still manage to catch Fringe even now that the Fall TV season is in full swing and it is up against The Office/Community, Grey’s, CSI, and Supernatural?! Thursday nights alone are making the HD TiVo that I purchased last year seem like a VERY wise investment indeed! Speaking of my beloved TiVo, […]
