Is anyone here watching this great show? I remember seeing a couple of threads over a year ago, maybe.

Since around halfway through season 2, this show has just been unbelievably good in my eyes. Probably from around the time of the 1st 1980's flashback episode ("Peter").

Anyway, back to this week's episode. Wow. Really had everything that you would want in a series finale, only the finale is actually next week. What will become of the characters that we know and love? Seems that we may be taking a peek into the future, but as usual on this show, really can't be certain. Seeing the 2021 memorial plaque and the new WTC blew my mind.

You know it was picked up for a full season next year, right?

Half of the first season just felt too much like a X-Files clone. Not so much a monster of the week but a weird event of the week. Then they started giving us the history of the characters and the show began to take a life of it's own. The second season was great and this season has been even better. Loved the animated episode in Olivia's head, that was fantastic.

I think the future world Peter jumped into is gonna be a mix of both universes.

I never, EVER thought I'd give a fuck about ANYTHING Pacey from Dawson's Creek would be in, but so far this show kicks ass.

My only gripe is Olivia... I don't like the actress playing her all that much. She's no Dana Scully, that's for sure.



Forget it Josh... it's Cerebustown.

I think Anna Torv does a great job. I mean she's up against John Noble who probably deserves an Emmy for his depiction of Walter (and Walternate) and more than holds her own.

Yeah, very pleased about Fringe being renewed. Should have said season finale, not series :)

Probably? I think anyone who doesn't vote for him should be prohibited from ever voting again. But perhaps I'm a little too much of a fanboy.

As for Torv, I think she's developed well into the role. And she's done an excellent job of presenting the differences between Olivia and Fauxlivia, not to mention the way she channelled Nimoy there for a couple of weeks.

If it's not already clear, I'm a huge fan of the show, and consider it the best thing on television right now. It's been an interesting change of tone these last couple weeks, as now the Fringe stuff is, well, no longer on the Fringe in "our" universe. I don't know what to make of that ending, but I've leanred to trust the show especially with the big story arcs.

Loved last week's callback to White Tulip, which was an absolutely amazing episode.

One thing I know for sure is that Kevin Corrigan is one of my favorite TV actors, and I'm very happy they brought Sam Weiss back.

Big fan here too; it's been fantastic since the second half of the first season. I can't remember the last show that had me so completely hooked. Although John Noble makes the show, I really like the secondary characters too, especially Sam Weiss and The Observers.

White Tulip was amazing, but I sitll think the last episode of the first season was my favorite episode.

I'm trying to keep a lid on my expectations for next week because I really don't know what to expect. I know that the jump scene to the future after Peter entered the doomsday device was really unexpected. And, the preview for next week's episode was just torture; I can't wait to see how this season ends.

I adore the writers for mentioning deep-dish continuity.

I like what this season has become, and I applaud the show for going into hardcore scifi and dropping the freak-of-the week premise.

But I'm surprised the Observers have been absent from these last few episodes.

I'm probably one of the last people to find this out (literally two days ago), but an Observer has appeared (fringepedia.net) in every single episode of the series.

I knew of that in earlier episodes and I've had some luck finding them here and there, but I mean we don't (yet) have a scene where they discuss the Big Doings. I hope -- really really hope -- they don't show up at the end of next episode and make Peter a deal to fix everything.

The first episode started with an Observer. They ought to be a more significant presence in this seemingly gigantic chapter in the series.

Sorry this is so late, but I got distracted by thinking about D&D. A Half-Elf would make a good Valorous Bard, in case you wondered. Then I got screwed up because titantv.com changed their settings, and my lineup wasn't saved properly.
