Fringe

Post  Banjo on 2008-09-10, 19:01

Watched the 1 1/2 hr. pilot. It has that J.J. Abrams "feel" to it ,ie, throw a lot of mysterious stuff at us then take the rest of the season to solve it.....but wait !.....at the end of the season we still won't know what's going on. Rolling Eyes

But it was pretty good and I'll keep watching more. One thing I didn't like is that it wasn't in HD and was letter-boxed to boot. I guess I'm spoiled by Terminator which looks really great in HD.

So did anyone watch the second episode? I did. Still feel the same so this is a no go for me. I guess I've gotten sqeemish...just too much gore.

I KNOW! I like the show in general...Crazy scientist Dad is still my favorite. But the eyeball stuff had me closing my eyes and asking Ben to tell me when I could open them again. I'm sure that will get old...for both of us.


Hoping that will be turned down in coming eppies. I like Blair Brown who plays the head of the spooky corporation, too.

Still liking it here...ever so much.
I liked the purpose of the eye...that was cool...last image retrieval...cool!...the eyeball itself....glass, no squish. I'm the same way with blood...strawberry syrup. Wink

I am faithfully watching/recording. But juggling this new season schedule is really a chore ! Oh poor me ! Luckily I bought a pack of dual-layer recordable DVDs when I bought my DVD recorder last summer. Broke them out this morning to see how they are programmed. Wow ! Can get 14 hour, 50 minute recording time on one ! But can select higher quality/shorter times. So am able to record the 2 hr. premier of Heroes (watching DWTS live) on Monday, Fringe on Tuesday (watching DWTS live) and Sons of Anarchy on Wednesday (past my bedtime), all on one disc at a good quality level.

I am going to have to miss Gray's Anatomy on Thursday because I'm watching the 2 hour premier of Survivors and ER , both of which overlap the 2 hour GA.

Next week Suvivor and GA will go to their regular 1 hour slots and then all 3 will slot nicely into the 3 hour sched. , 7 to 10.

Stick with me and I will lead you through these troubled times. Rolling Eyes

Last night's episode had William Sadler portraying Dr. Sumner, the director of the institution where Walter had been rescued from.
Dr. Sumner seems a bit nefarious, and reminds me of Anthony Heald's character Dr. Frederick Chilton who headed the Baltimore Hospital for the Criminally Insane in "Silence of the Lambs."

I wonder if Dr. Sumner is going to be a recurring role?! cheers

With the action he threatened to take as regards Walter Bishop, it sure seems as if it will recur, doesn't it?

Bill, who comes on his Official site to talk to us frequently...never mentioned this role. bonked on the head

He is a good actor. You would never know it from seeing the mean, straight-laced guy he played last night that he is just the warmest, funniest, most down-to-Earth guy imaginable in real life.


He is currently up in Canada filming a Jesse Stone tv movie with Tom Sellack. I like those...they're always good.

This season is more interesting, I'm watching regularly. Anna Tove 'in real life' has just married her 'boyfriend' that was blown up in the first season and she met again in the "dream walk" in last night's ep. It took their friends and family by surprise.

Holey Moley! Fringe has just cast a big, big name to play Dr. Bell in future episodes. I don't want to ruin the surprise for anyone but your jaw will drop when you know who. (Let me know if you just can't wait and I'll PM you) . :D

I thought the finale was pretty good. I'm a sucker for alternate worlds plots so that was pretty neat when she gets transported to Dr. Bell's world on the elevator ride. They should use that alternate world in future plots/episodes. It would greatly expand the possibilities. Of course they couldn't keep Nimoy on board, he doesn't come cheap even if he wanted to do episodic TV which I doubt he does. So they'll have to wrap up his story arc in the first episode of next season.

Last night on a repeat of Fringe, the one where people were bursting into flames....leading up to the season premier.....they put Twitter messages up on the screen, live, between Joshua, "Walter", and a couple of the writers/producers, I don't know who was who. They were all watching as the episode played and commented on scenes and hinted as to season 2. It was pretty interesting. I guess Nimoy hasn't been signed to come back but the alternate universe that Anna went to will be featured more extensively..and the cow will be back. :lol:
