The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films recently held the 39th Annual Saturn Awards at The Castaway Starlight Ballroom in Burbank. It was a beautiful day and night high in the hills of Burbank. This award show is not televised, and honors a genre that the main award shows generally overlook. The host for the awards was Lance Reddick (FRINGE) and the awards were dedicated to Ray Harryhausen, who passed away May 7, 2013.  Richard Matheson who was to receive The Visionary Award this night, also passed away June 23, 2013. Jonathan Frakes who was being honored with […]Read On »

TV Review: FRINGE – Season 5 – “Anomaly XB-6783746”

Stars: Anna Torv, Joshua Jackson, Jasika Nicole, John Noble, Lance Reddick, Blair Brown Writer: David Fury Director: Jeffrey Hunt Network: Fox, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: December 21, 2012 As FRINGE concludes its last episode of 2012 before it heads into the final three episodes of the series in January, the show continues its up and down ride through the season long arc of the humans versus the Observers. It’s been a challenging season, and at times, a rather boring one too. Without the benefit of too many standalone episodes, the ongoing threat vacillates between ominous to non-existent. It’s hard […]Read On »

TV Review: FRINGE – Season 5 – “The Human Kind”

Stars: Anna Torv, Joshua Jackson, Jasika Nicole, John Noble, Lance Reddick, Blair Brown, Georgina Haig Writer: Alison Schapker Director: Dennis Smith Network: Fox, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: December 7, 2012 I’ve wanted to like the final season of FRINGE. I think the idea of a future ruled by Observers and the Fringe team trying to take them down was always a a solid arc for the final stretch. Yet, the fifth season of FRINGE has been painfully slow and redundant. The idea that Walter (John Noble) has to find all these missing videotapes in order to remember what September […]Read On »

TV Review: FRINGE – Season 5 – “The Bullet That Saved the World”

Stars: Anna Torv, Joshua Jackson, Jasika Nicole, John Noble, Lance Reddick, Blair Brown, Georgina Haig Writer:  Alison Schapker Director: David Straiton Network: Fox, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: October 28, 2012 Just when I thought FRINGE was going to get too repetitive with its “let’s find the videotape of the week” storyline as Walter (John Noble) tries to reconstruct the plan to destroy the Observers and save the world, “The Bullet That Saved The World” completely changes everything. A really solid episode that has a shocking moment toward the end that changes the fifth season of the series moving forward. […]Read On »

TV Review: FRINGE – Season 5 – “The Recordist”

Stars: Anna Torv, Joshua Jackson, Jasika Nicole, John Noble, Lance Reddick, Blair Brown, Georgina Haig Writer: Graham Roland Director: Jeff T. Thomas Network: Fox, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: October 12, 2012 With the introduction of the idea that Walter (John Noble) has had many of his memories erased (some of which would allow him to remember how to stop the Observers because September told him the secret), FRINGE now begins what may be a very odd little subplot for a good duration of this 13-episode series finale. Essentially, Walter recorded the information on how to stop the Observers on […]Read On »

Stars: Anna Torv, Joshua Jackson, Jasika Nicole, John Noble, Lance Reddick, Blair Brown, Georgina Haig Writer: J.H. Wyman Directors: Jeannot Szwarc, Miguel Sapochnik Network: Fox, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: October 28, 2012 I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, FRINGE is one of the most ambitious and ground-breaking science-fiction series ever. It never rests on its laurels and it’s always quick to change its tone, focus and concept season by season in an attempt to tell challenging and complex stories even die-hard fans would never expect. After Season 4, FRINGE was on the bubble and almost didn’t return […]Read On »

Two weeks ago, the FRINGE actors and executive producer J.H. Wyman descended upon Comic-Con to give the scoop on FRINGE Season 5. While they were tight-lipped about giving away any major spoilers, today at the Fox Summer TCA Press Tour, executive producer spoke about how he wanted to end FRINGE Season 5 – and it won’t be open-ended. “I’m not interested in anything open ended,” Wyman admits. “It would cause me frustration. I wouldn’t be satisfied. Here’s what’s really cool about FRINGE, and one of the things we did do right — the way we chose to tell the story, […]Read On »

While Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly admits that the network has history of cancelling low-rated genre shows despite huge fan bases, he admitted today at the Fox Summer TCA Press Tour that he was pleased he was able to give FRINGE a final 13-episode Season 5 send-off. “I don’t like to pull the plug on any show, and many of our failed shows have millions of fans,” says Reilly. “We have a checkered history with genre at best, because we’re one of the only networks who have consistently tried genre. FRINGE has a particular fan base and the FRINGE producers […]Read On »
