New JJ Abrams TV show "Fringe" - Page 10

post #136 of 175
I admit the break in the winter killed the momentum for me but I'm catching up now and I still think it's a decent show. I thought Jared Harris was too busy with Mad Men, but I like how they recycled him with some form of plausibility from his season 1 demise. Peter is of course the lynchpin of everything. The alternate universe including Walternate are more human now.

Just caught the most recent episode? What.the.hell. Are they pulling a Firefly and airing these out of sequence or something?

It was a good episode but we have to wait and see how this ties into the overall story arc. Interesting to see Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Pretty jarring though. The previous episode ended with the big reveal that Jones is planning to implode both worlds. Then the next episode is a two-parter introducing a completely new world-ending crisis to deal with? I wonder if they've gotten word that this is the last season so they skipped planned episodes in order to film "good" ones.

If I remember correctly, every season usually produces one episode before the final run towards the finale where things are strange. This is around the same time they did the cartoon episode of Leonard Nimoy and the black (brown?) and white musical.

It was picked up for a thirteen-episode fifth and final season icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Whatever happened to that teaser they put at the end of the cartoon episode, anyway? The guy with the X on his shirt. Peter asks about him and Olivia goes "I don't know who he is, but I think he's the man who's going to kill me."

Very glad they are going to have the fifth season to wrap everything up. biggrin.gif

Given they will hit around 100 episodes, I'm pretty sure the renewal is all on Warner's expense. But the good thing is the nine or ten filler episodes they usually have each season will be out - and hopefully Fox won't split it up with three breaks as they normally do.

I'm confused about bell right now. So much shit has happened in this show that I can't keep it straight anymore. Early on, didn't bell go to the other universe because he was dying and Olivia visited him there? Or was that alternate bell she met?

I'm not 100% certain but I have a feeling that Bell being alive is the same reason David Robert Jones and Broyles from the other side were alive. It is due to the fact that Peter did not exist in this universe and events from the prior seasons played out differently. Bell died during the series of events crossing over from the theater and so did alternate Broyles. Since the alternate Broyles is still alive, one would assume perhaps Bell did not have to sacrifice himself to power Olivia's return.

No one in the current universe ever talked about Bell dying other than in a car accident which we (the audience, Peter and now the new Olivia) know is untrue.

That said the alternate Lincoln Lee did say when he was shot that he recovered from being a burn victim so Olivia and her superhero childhood friends must have crossed over and back some other way.

On a side note, it appears Leonard Nimoy is going to return to acting. He is going to reprise his role for the next Star Trek film.

Correct, and just to clarify, it's the 19th episode of every season that is really "unique" biggrin.gif

This is also my opinion but I wouldn't be surprised at all if it's something else.

 

Side note: It's hard to believe Bell would have turned completely bad through all this. My thought is that he has a way to create a new universe that is essentially utopia - peaceful, no wars, maybe humans are immortal in his new universe, etc so he thinks he's worth it to destroy the current universes. I don't know, I just can't imagine after everything we knew about him it just turns out he was a villain trying to destroy the universe for no reason all along. Can't wait for the season finale! This season has been amazing.
