I'll admit, the show has me hooked, I'm anxious to see the ending. However, one can understand why this is the last season, I think it would have been cancelled if they didn't intend on this being the final season. In a sense it was getting a bit too drawn out, and at the same time I felt like it was being rushed into futuristic episodes, at one point I was confused. But without doubt its a decent show, that deserves a happy ending. Goodbye Fringe!
This is the best science fiction series I have watched since Battlestar Galactica. Also best story about a parallel universe! It also has the best fictional character of a tv series, Dr. Walter Bishop!
since the networks and cable channels have decided to go cheap on us and make 99 percent REALITY TV shows, wrestling (on sci-fi!!) and are always cancelling great shows... i have cancelled my cable and no longer watch any tv... i download all my shows i like off the internet and have started watching alot of bbc shows from england. I'll not sit in front of the box and watch crap in the evenings after working all day. I want quality or nothing at all from the networks / cable channels. I SUGGEST WE ALL BOYCOTT THE TV for one week each month until the REALITY CRAP is taken off the air. That crap causes brain damage... it's totally unacceptable. No one is stupid enough to enjoy that crap except some inbred bigfoot half-breed. They want to produce the cheapest crap possible and still retain the ratings to get sponsors and advertising dollars. Don't give them the appearance of ratings by watching at all. Turn off you cable / sat and download... NO Commercials!!! and only watch what you want to watch when u want to watch it... been doing this for 4 years now and it's great. Only problem is, running out of shows to watch. Sci-Fi channel, now si-fi (junk now) sold out and became a cess-pool putting on fantasy and wrestling crap... was once the best channel on cable... anyways,
boycott cable / networks and download from internet...
watch ur shows without commercials or interuption...
hope the networks realize they're loosing their loyal viewers because we're NOT dumbing down and
we HATE reality TV crap...
screw u a-holes... you're idiots and you're gonna kill ur networks/channels if you keep on this way
I was actually starting to get bored of this show in season 4 until episode 19 where we got the first glimpse of the new season's story. The show has definitely gone in a different direction than past seasons but I find it refreshing & entertaining. Can't wait to see what happens in the rest of the season.
I personally think season 5 is their best yet! Sure they took a different approach with this one, a bit darker and more serialized then before but I like that. We get so much more depth of the characters and I think this is just a more mature version of the show. I will be very sad to see it go but at least it will end strong!
I have found enough in Fringe to watch all the seasons so far, but this is wrapping up too fast and personally I dont like it. I hope at least we will get some good episodes towards the end, but it is all too gray and sad. I cannot foresee any kind of happy ending or victory.
It's that they're going to kill it off in only 5 seasons. They should deffinitely push for 8 or 10. God knows if any show has the following and storyboard for it it's fringe. Like many of the big fans of fringe I wasn't that amazed by the first season which played like a poor rip of flthe x-files. But in the 2nd season the writers really let it rip, that's when I came back and I've been hooked ever since. Like I said with all the story lines that can be flushed out of this, even fringe prequel episodes, could be used to keep this going for 8 - 10 seasons. Don't believe me, remember SG-1. So I'm sort of dissapointed they're giving up so early, but it was a great ride while it lasted.
What a shame its entering its last season and the worst thing is that we only are going to have around 10 episodes. Where a we the scify people going to turn without fringe, eureka, and so many undervalued tv shows.
Oh, gee.... where do I start... was it the touching moments between "Afro" (lol) and Walter? Was it the reassurance in a single episode that every character had a development, it just keeps on improving on itself all the time! It's like Battlestar... I approve it ending because it is and will forever remain one of the best shows on TV because it has a story to tell and it sticks to it. From the outset of the latest season it remains what it was: a beautiful, kind hearted take on the character of Walter: the hero of the piece; a mad scientist with a love of food, drugs and music totally in line with family, friendship and the hope that it all means something. shucks. I was counting the minutes before it ended fringe writers and I'm hoping you follow in the same vein x
I really suffered through the first episodes when I first watched Fringe - and stopped watching it. Out of boredom I got into it again and after a few episodes in Season 2 (if I remember correctly) I was blown away. (I've actually seen the same reaction with two of my male friends, who also didn't really like the show in the beginning, but loved it after a few more episodes.)
Anyways. Why is the series so good? Well, first and foremost: The CAST is AWESOME. Great, Breathtakingly chosen. I love all of them. Of course John Noble as Walter Bishop is a genius - in the sense of how he plays it, because, of course Walter IS a genius in the show ;) I've also fallen in love with Olivia. I love to watch her be and smile and act. It's natural, but also very complex. The character that has the least depth (to my utter discontent), is Peter Bishop. I dearly love the character, but somehow I actually don't even know why - (maybe that's the thing about him?!) Without going into more detail: Astrid, Lincoln and Broyles are great as well!
The second thing about Fringe is of course the great storyline. In the beginning I heard that JJ Abrams plans a show, where you can miss an episode and still know what's going on (in contrast to Lost) - well: That didn't work out quite well, did it? No way you can miss an episode and are still able to understand everything. Ultimately, that's a good thing - so: Don't worry ;)
Fringe had a weak 3rd Season and the beginning of Season 4 didn't really knock me off my feet, that's why I have to downrate it a teensy bit. BUT it's still an extraordinary show and I'll be sad to see it vanish at the beginning of next year.
I wish I could give this show an 11 "AMAZINGLY AWESOME" instead of a boring 10 "Perfect"... I am in awe almost every week. It's strange how underrated this show is, but at the same time understandable. To truly love this show you need to have an open mind to these weird, mad sience theories that could ACTUALLY be true... Like... not completely, obviously. But when you dig in to the matter of the show, you find that a lot of the theories explained by Walter Bishop (<3) have parts of actual sience theories at the base of it. (i'm having problems with my English here, freely paraphrasing Dutch. Feel free to ask if I'm making no sense whatsoever). So; If you have an open mind, a big imagination and are a sucker for sience fiction; go ahead and LOVE ON FRINGE!! So happy it's getting a proper send off with a fifth final season. Thank you, F O X ! ! !
this is sci fi at its best. if you are a fan of sci fi you will absolutely love this show as i do but even if you are not, this show isnt a mere sci fi show, its a fathers desperate attempt to reunite with his son despite the consequences that will most likely occur.Its not just scifi, its an emotional journey for each character on the show. simply put this show is for everyone and i simply cannot comprehend why it has such low ratings. oh well, at least this impeccable story has a chance to wrap up.
I can't get enough of it! The whole cast is excellent. I do have to say Walter couldn't be portrayed by a better actor. It was as if the script had been molded around the actor. But they all seem to fit perfect around there rolls. Awesome stuff!
Fringe brings creative producers, creative logical ideas, amazingly telented cast with great characters.
Before i started watching this show i was like all about supernatural stuffs (vampires, werewolfs..) ... But this show brings sci-fi excitement, entertainment; by shape shifters, perraral univers, earth elements and awesome unexpected terrorism, mind blowing science technology..
Best character: walter bisop. Very well acted. I take this as one of the Interesting and unique character.
Best episode: Peter. The episode Excitement, gave me goosebumps scene to scene. Emotional experiences. Revealing the biggest most interesting secret. Just luv it...
Anna Torv, Joshua Jackson, John Noble, Blair Brown I would like to high light them acted very well. others are doing well too...
I like this show. It isn't so different but yet totally different, in my opinion. I think Fringe has come to the point of its storyline to end the series. The way season 4 ended (besides the observer showing up in the last few seconds) would have been perfect way yo end it.
Love the show cannot stand the girl who plays "Olivia" however. A good headstrong female lead I guess, but she's just predictable. Same things over and over. She's either obsessed with finding a solution, headstrong, angry, confused or wallowing about being different. If they had a better main character MY GOD this show would be legendary. For now, it's just a great watch however.
