Chitchat: Reflecting on the end of Fringe

In the aftermath of Fringe's series finale, I exchanged some emails with friend of the site Cameron White.  Cory: Well Cameron, Fringe is over. The 13-episode final season had its ups and downs (which we'll get to), but the finale played it pretty straight. There weren't too many BIG surprises and the emotional beats carried the … Continue reading Chitchat: Reflecting on the end of Fringe

2011-2012 season wrap: Fringe

The 2011-2012 television season has been over for almost a couple of weeks now, which means a sufficient amount of time has passed and we are primed to reflect. Over the next handful of days, I will be producing some pieces and lists looking back on the season that was. I missed out on a … Continue reading 2011-2012 season wrap: Fringe

Review: Fringe, “Back To Where You’ve Never Been”

I spent a good deal of time at the end of 2011 being frustrated and disappointed with Fringe. I wrote a review or two and did two podcasts about the first part of the series’ fourth season and if you recall those products, you’ll remember that I felt like Fringe’s approach to this second pair … Continue reading Review: Fringe, “Back To Where You’ve Never Been”

Season Premiere review — Fringe, “Neither Here Nor There”

I'm short on time this weekend, but I wanted to jot down a few thoughts on the season four premiere of Fringe. This post will be brief. Fringe is in a weird position. Or at least it seems that way to me. Season three discarded all pretensions and presumptions of general popularity and dove quickly and … Continue reading Season Premiere review — Fringe, “Neither Here Nor There”

Season Finale — Fringe, “The Day We Died”

Hey folks, I had a busy weekend full of personal business, so I'll be posting some reviews of Friday television today. They're late and probably a bit shorter than usual, but hopefully they're still worth reading. I said in my review of Fringe's penultimate episode that this season was one of my favorite of recent … Continue reading Season Finale — Fringe, “The Day We Died”

Fringe, “Do Shapeshifters Dream of Electric Sheep?”

Although I find "Do Shapeshifters Dream of Electric Sheep?" to be the weakest of Fringe's opening four episodes of season three, it still provides an intriguing look into the psyches of the title characters and furthers the confusing situation Fauxlivia currently finds herself in. Since the shapeshifters were introduced into the series in the season … Continue reading Fringe, “Do Shapeshifters Dream of Electric Sheep?”
