    eh, I wouldn't be so sure...


    Also, as far as the 'first observer' thing I'm not 100% sure now after the preview of the next episode... the "x amount of time before the changes become permanent" line makes me think its split between -

    -tech stays, he becomes more and more distant and more towards him as the 1st observer

    -or, he beats winmark in the next episode and then walter removes the tech before it can't be undone and he goes back to normal Peter without the extra powers and with human emotions... and then the focus of the show goes more heavily onto Walter not turning into the man he was before he had the parts of his brain removed.

    I don't think it'll lead to Peter being the first observer seeing how they're supposed to be from the 27th century. Don't see how they can explain the few hundred years in between.

    Also, my memory of last season is fuzzy but what happened with the whole alternative universe and William Bell attempting to destroy the world plot? How did Bell end up in amber with Walter and the gang?

    This last series has been insanely good. I was apprehensive at first having the final episodes in the future, but they have done an excellent job of keeping everything moving full speed.

    Walter tripping balls was HILARIOUS. I freaked out when the imaginary fingers came down and snatched him up.

    Well Fringe is done. :(

    I didn't catch all of this season as I had moved with a few episodes on my old DVR but I mostly caught the final season. Sad no more Walter Bishop.

    That was a really good way to send off the show. Sad its gone, as there's really no good Sci-Fi left on TV any more.

    Continuum is airing in the US now on Syfy, I hear that's pretty good?

    There is nothing in the Fringe/Buffy/X-Files slot of fun teams with weird plots, and no space faring Battlestar/Star-Trek/Stargate shows. For a time when science fiction, fantasy and superheros are really hitting the mainstream on the big screen, there's a dearth of tv offerings.

    Supernatural was always good IMO but I haven't had a chance to watch the current season.

    FINALLY caught the finale. Agree that it was a satisfying and inventive end to what was IMO one of the best sci-fi series in TV history.

    My problem with Fringe (same with Lost) is that after finishing the series I can't help but think the writers had no idea how the story will unfold and were just writing week to week for a while. The result is that ultimately the earlier seasons with all the "pattern" events and ZFT etc... and even the alternate universe had no tie-in with the observer invasion.

    Well, to be fair, they were on the verge of getting cancelled by Fox every season, so its hard to plot several seasons in advance when they may not even exist.
