Toye Network: Fox, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: March 30, 2012 After a couple of solid weeks, the “Nothing As it Seems” episode of FRINGE takes a detour in monster-of-the week territory that just seems to out-of-place in the FRINGE universe. “Nothing As It Seems” revisits a previous case from Peter’s original timeline about the man who turns into a monstrous humanoid porcupine. That case is revived in the new timeline, but things are drastically different. What we […]Read On »

As Lincoln Lee on the Fox series FRINGE (airing Friday nights on Fox), Seth Gabel has played four different iterations of his Lincoln Lee character both Over There, Over Here and now this season, two completely different Lincolns after the timeline was reset due to Peter (Joshua Jackson) sacrificing himself during the Season 3 finale. The new Lincoln this year found him unaware of the Fringe division as he was brought into the fold of this top secret division where he began to have feelings for Olivia (Anna Torv). Things have become more complicated now that Peter has come back […]Read On »

With FRINGE on a creative high this season, fans have been wondering if Fox may pull another TERRA NOVA and unceremoniously cancel the series before they get a chance to write a satisfying season finale. However, at Wondercon 2012, FRINGE executive producers J.H. Wyman and Jeff Pinkner revealed that it’s still a possibility that a Season 5 will happen. “I think we’re 70/30 that the show is coming back,” says Pinkner. “We’re inside of it and we’re very hopeful, but those odds may be skewered by our own aspirations.” For Wyman, he says that nothing is ever set in stone, […]Read On »

Cast: Joshua Jackson, John Noble, Anna Torv, Seth Gabel, Lance Reddick, Jasika Nicole Writer: David Fury Director: Jeff Hunt Network: Fox, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: February 24, 2012 It’s been weeks of build up, but finally the big Olivia (Anna Torv) arc has  been blown open in this week’s FRINGE – “The End of All Things.” With a title like that, you’d expect this to be the series finale episode, but it’s rather a new beginning for where the rest of Season 4 is heading. Last week, Olivia was kidnapped after it had been discovered Cortexiphan had been unknowingly […]Read On »

TV Review: FRINGE – Season 4 – “A Better Human Being”

Cast: Joshua Jackson, John Noble, Anna Torv, Seth Gabel, Lance Reddick, Jasika Nicole Writer: Alison Schapker & Monica Owusu- Breen based on a story by Glen Whitman & Robert Chiappetta Director: Joe Chappelle Network: Fox, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: February 17, 2012 The FRINGE episode “A Better Human Being” is a good premise, that isn’t as fully fleshed out or as creepy as it should be. Yet, the creepy A-story, is truthfully the B-story to the episode’s stronger mythology storyline about what’s going on with Olivia (Anna Torv) and why she’s having memories of her life with Peter (Joshua […]Read On »

Cast: Joshua Jackson, John Noble, Anna Torv, Seth Gabel, Lance Reddick, Jasika Nicole Writer: J.R. Orci and Graham Roland Director: David Straiton Network: Fox, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: February 10, 2012 It’s a shame TV-goers don’t know what they’re missing with FRINGE. No show has ever come this close to the creepiness and originality factor of THE X-FILES, while also forging ahead with its own unique storytelling. FRINGE has it all. This season has been about identity and who and what we are. It’s also dealt with the return of Peter (Joshua Jackson) from the nether-world of saving the […]Read On »

TV Review: FRINGE – Season 4 – “Wallflower”

Cast: Joshua Jackson, John Noble, Anna Torv, Seth Gabel, Lance Reddick, Jasika Nicole Writer: Matt Pits & Justin Doble Director: Anthony Hemingway Network: Fox, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: November 18, 2011 FRINGE can get strange, but with “Wallflower,” the series’ season four midseason finale, it gets downright perplexing. It isn’t because it’s bad, but because it ends up telling a rather strange, almost tragic story that dovetails into a major mythology turning point, rather than any big reveal of the week’s mystery. The story begins with an invisible man running around creating havoc and leaving his victims completely white […]Read On »

TV Review: FRINGE – Season 4 – “And Those We Left Behind”

Cast: Joshua Jackson, John Noble, Anna Torv, Seth Gabel, Lance Reddick, Jasika Nicole Writer: Robert Chiappetta & Glen Whitman Director: Brad Anderson Network: Fox, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: November 12, 2011 Outside of FUTURAMA, the FRINGE writing and producing team has to be the most intelligent science geeks the entertainment industry has ever assembled in one room. Put them together, and you could probably rule (or destroy) the world with the scientific theories and fringe science that’s explored on a weekly basis on either series. And in “And Those We Left Behind”, we get a very complicated episode about […]Read On »

Wyman, Akiva Goldsman Director: Joe Chappelle Network: Fox, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: October 7, 2011 Here’s the problem with a show like FRINGE that continues to break the rules in order to try something different – some genre fans are so savvy they can see the “truth” before the big twists actually arrive which spoils part of the fun to begin with. With “Subject 9”, it’s one of those episodes where genre fans will see the ending coming a mile away – […]Read On »
