  • Awesome start to season two.

    What I love about Fringe is that every episode starts with an opening scene in an unknown location and ends with a "whoa, what the hell just happened!?" moment, before showing the title screen. At that point you usually know whether you care to continue watching and I can safely say after witnessing Olivia being tossed from the vehicles window, I knew Fringe was back and better than ever. I had forgotten how much mystery and suspense one episode can have and how many questions it could leave you with. Some may not like this method of storytelling, but personally I wouldn't mind waiting an entire season for one answer if it meant keeping me in constant suspense until that point. The inclusion of shape shifters from the 'other side' feels like it could play out nicely and I'm glad they plan on continuing it in the future. At this point we have Olivia's other world encounters to look forward to hearing about and that's enough to keep me coming back for at least a few more weeks.
