  • Walter Bishop's Flying Circus

    A really great treat to true Fringe addicts like myself. We get one last "weird" Fringe episode like the number 19's from seasons passed that managed to incorporate all the 19's at once - it was set in the future, the whole episode was led by the music (seriously, the soundtrack in this one deserves its own Emmy) and it has animation and LSD. Add to this the natural progression of the story, mixed with an episode that on its surface is the lighthearted adventure we needed after so much doom and gloom (great timing, guys in the writers room!) but underneath is a much darker story line that - though I seem to be in the minority with this - makes Walter's concerns about the man he was before the pieces of his brain were removed seem much more human and real.
