  • THIS WAS NOT A GOOD EPISODE

    Fringe "The Recordist" Review: Time to Get Proactiv

    A hero was made this week but I could barely bring myself care during a shockingly dull episode of Fringe.

    • The worst episode of Fringe ever

      2.0
      It was bad. Dull, slow and strange. Not fringy strange but just strange. It wasn't Fringe like, it had no action, there was nothing apart from red rocks that made the plot any farther. It becomes clearer why the show was about to be canceled last season. The lack of ideas was on the horizon and now it just reaches the shore...
    • We miss the Fringe events and the Oliv Action!

      6.5
      I'm very sad to say that Season 5 of Fringe is so below the level of the previous two seasons. The show become full of drama and details that made it a little bit boring. I think the writers should consider to add more action and weird events with the invaders and we need to see Olivia in action with her daughter, that would be awesome!

      This is episode show exactly what I mean. The tapes thing remind of the final season of Prison Break and what happen to that show. I think the writes should end this tapes this in the next episode.moreless
    • Falling in love all over again

      Seriously, dont be a fool and star bringing logic into Fringe! This is a world where anything is possible - and if people with freaky diseases are recording history on crystal cubes, in the woods, you'd better believe it!



      Great character episode... Season 5 is making me fall in love with Fringe all over again.

      Not the best episode. Too slow and nothing really important happened. But even though it was a bad of episode of Fringe, it was still streets ahead (notice the Community reference) than other shows.
    • Obviously the lack of ideas starts to show

      4.0
      it was like a bad episode of X Files from 15 years ago. And all the violins and epic, dramatic music. The only thing that surprised me was that the crystals were RED and not green and glowing in the dark. And how in the world these people living in the woods have the technology for recording to those glass cubes? C'mon...
