The season finale was suitably "cliff-hangerish".... [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] Looks like they'll have to keep on using the alternate universe plot lines next season, which is good and is more interesting than the "monster-in-the sewers" or "spontaneous human combustion" plots that have been used in the past.

Loved this season's first epi! two thumbs up

Talk about playing mind games on someone .... nono

Not to be concerned. Somehow the two Olivia's will work things out. Maybe a pillowfight to settle the Q of who gets to keep Peter??? :randy:

The cab driver is Andre Royo. I first noticed him in The Wire, on HBO. He played a homeless guy who sold trinkets, T-shirts, etc. from a shopping cart on the street. An amazing performance and some of it comes through in his role on Fringe although it has very little of the depth that his The Wire role afforded.

Producers: ‘Fringe’ Won’t Die in Friday Night Graveyard


by Sean Daly
Dec 2nd, 2010 | 9:58 AM | Comments 100
Don’t panic yet, ‘Fringe‘ fans. Producers of the cult favorite (but low rated) sci fi series insist they are not about to get the axe – despite being banished to what some call the Friday night “Fox Graveyard.”“What is ironic is that for the last year, all the message boards have been saying ‘Please move the show off of Thursday nights,’ so it is sort of one of those ‘Be careful what you wish for things,’” executive producer Jeff Pinkner says of the move, which starts in January.For years, Friday night has been the death slot at Fox – especially for science fiction: ‘Terminator,’ ‘Dollhouse,’ ‘MANTIS,’ ‘Sliders,’ ‘Millennium’ and ‘Dark Angel’ were all euthanized there.“From the inside, you know when you are losing support from your network and studio partners, Pinkner says. “For us it has been just the opposite.”“Our show has developed a devoted, rabid fan base. Our critical praise has never been higher. And our fan support has never been more passionate. If we can translate that to Friday nights, which has much lower expectations, we will be around for a good long time.”Doing its part to help out, Fox produced a movie-style trailer for tonight’s episode titled “Entrada.”
Preview Tonight’s Episode:

The exact plot is being kept top secret, but the network hints that “Peter grapples with the aftermath of recent events as Olivia searches for an ally. Meanwhile, the Fringe Team discovers a critical device that communicates between universes.”Confused? New to the out-of-this-world story? No problem.“If the only episode of ‘Fringe’ you tune in to watch is this one, it is going to take you five minutes to sort of catch up, but you will feel what is going on, you will understand the relationships,” executive producer Joel Wyman tells us.“It is a great entry point. And the one right afterwards, which is the falling out of this episode and sort of the picking up the pieces of this episode, is equally a great place to join. Because it is a reset episode.“Olivia will be home sort of dealing with the consequences – like Rip Van Winkle – of everything that she missed.” [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] Anna Torv and Joshua Jackson in Fringe (FOX)

The last couple of eps have been very good. Last week was entirely in the alternate universe with their own problems and no interaction with this universe, and last night we see Peter and Olivia as children and their experiences and Olivia's ability to travel back and forth without external equipment.

Loved the episode. Especially where young Olivia crosses over (without realizing it) and hands the alternate Walter her drawing notebook, only to have the real Walter walk in and break the limk.
Great stuff!! woohoo

‘Fringe’ Producers: Someone Will Die!

by Sean Daly
Apr 15th, 2011 | 7:22 AM | Comments 0

“Fringe” will live on – without one of its most beloved characters.

“Somebody we all love deeply will die (before the end of the season),” producer Jeff Pinkner confirmed in a conference call with reporters Thursday.

The death, producer J.D. Wyman adds, “is going to be effective and it will be self explanatory…’Fringe’ always does things the way you don’t expect…We are always trying to finish the season off by opening a brand new chapter for next season.”

The pair also debunked rumors that the show would incorporate yet another new parallel universe.

“We are not introducing a third world,” Pinkner said. “There is our world and then there is the world that Peter was taken from as an 8 year-old. We still have plenty of stories to tell in those two worlds. Maybe at some point in the future there will be a third world. But not yet.”

The low-rated (but cult favorite) sci-fi series was banished in January to Fox’s Friday night “death slot” – where ‘Terminator,’ ‘Dollhouse,’ ‘MANTIS,’ ‘Sliders,’ ‘Millennium’ and ‘Dark Angel’ were all sent to die.

Watch A “Fringe” Sneak Peek:

But “Fringe” has managed to survive. Not that the showrunners had any doubts.

“The network and studio have been so upfront about everything they were going to do with the program to try to keep it on the air,” Wyman says. “It was always just a matter of us believing in them and them believing in us.”

This week’s episode marks the return of Leonard Nimoy as William Bell, founder and CEO of Massive Dynamic and the wizard responsible for much of the crazy science on the show.

“Leonard retired from acting at the end of (last year’s) season finale,” Pinkner noted. “But Joel and I and (writer-director) Akiva Goldsman were talking about the notion that William Bell would inhabit Olivia’s mind and we came up with what we thought was a really cool idea.

“So we called Leonard and pitched the idea to him and he just started laughing. He said, ‘Ok, I am in. How do you want to use me?’ And we talked him through that.

“He is participating in the show. It is more than just giving us license. Anna did a spectacular job becoming William Bell. But William Bell is present in this next episode. And present in a way, I guess we can say, that gives new meaning to alternate reality. But it is very much Leonard Nimoy.”

That was really an innovative way to do that. clap Can you imagine what someone would have thought if they tuned in late around the 25-30 minute mark ? :lol:

I guess that's the way they "used" Nimoy. He had to do the voice but didn't have to get up early and go to the studio..... :lol:

There was one minor technical error. When they were in the zeppelin (they did call it by its correct name two thumbs up ) and the guy shot the flare through the envelope, there wouldn't have been any out rushing of air as if the interior was pressurized because zeppelins don't fly high enough to require pressurization in that or our universe. Also, the implication was that it got its lift from the "air" within the envelope. In reality the lifting gas was contained in separate "bags" or "bladders" spaced along the sides. There were "catwalks" running the length (not nearly as wide as portrayed on the show) for access and maintenance. Of course they didn't specify whether the lifting gas was helium or hydrogen. In the U.S. Navy's zeppelins in the 20's & 30's they used helium, much safer, but the Germans had to use hydrogen because the U.S. had a monopoly on helium and wouldn't supply it to anyone else. Although their zeppelins were built on German designs.

With only one episode to go, and judging by next week's preview, they are either going to have to wrap things up pretty fast or have multiple cliff hangers. Common sense dictates the latter. I am wondering if that machine, functioning as a time machine, at least in that application, physically transported Peter to the future or only his mind ? And exactly what happened up there ? scratch

Well, it did get it's renewal so they'll have lots of opportunity to explore. I'm betting on a cliff hanger next week.

So we see how they how they kill off Olivia without actually doing it. A cautionary tale to remember with the upcoming Bones. Although they don't have the time travel advantage.... scratch
