Fringe's New Promo: The Observers Tell You Sheep to Stay in Line (VIDEO)

  • 23comments

The best promo team in all of television is back at it again with this new teaser for the fifth and final season of Fringe. Consider it one of those "The More You Know" PSA ads, but instead of a celebrity working off community service for a DUI, it's a bald guy in a hat telling the public that they will be brainwashed if they don't obey their new overlords. Fun!

We're expecting Season 5 (or at least a portion of it) to take place in 2036, the same year the excellent episode "Letters of Transit" was set in. If your mind hasn't been wiped and you can recall, in the year 2036, the Observers were running things and partying to Observer techno while Fringe Division agents served as the Observers' bitches and policed the "native population" (regular humans).

That was Captain Winmark, leader of the Observers, telling you to keep in line or get a healthy dose of Forget-Me-Nows. For those of you wondering what that flash was around the 0:36 mark, here's a screencap. Looks like La Resistance lives on!

Fringe returns September 28 at 9pm.
