What happened last night? Idol ran late, which pushed Fringe late, too. My DVR cut off just as Olivia realized the dude in the van was The Artist.

I totally need to catch up with this. I haven't seen any of the episodes from 2009.

I found last night's episode on Hulu and will catch up soon. I figured if I watch it on Hulu, Eliza might find me and lick me with her long alien tongue.

Last night's eppy was pretty good. Some of the shit was hokey, as usual, but they acted the hell out of it.

I want more Joshua Jackson.

Olivia at the strip club staring down that dancer made me feel funny in my pants.

This show acts like it wants to be a great show, but never quite seems to get there. Overall, it's not bad (not as good as Dollhouse), but there's plenty of room for improvement next season.

It was a pretty darn strong season finale.

The reveal about Peter wasn't a big surprise, but I dug it anyway, and how it will open up a lot of tension between him and Walter when Peter learns about it.

They spent most of the episode showing us how dangerous and difficult it is to travel between dimensions (can we only access one other, btw?) and it turns out that Bell has a frigging ELEVATOR that does it. How did he do THAT?! That was more of a WTF moment for me than the reveal of the building they were in.

Yeah. Good stuff. The Peter reveal wasn't shocking, especially since they spoiled it earlier in the episode, but overall a good ending to the season.

Peter is the son and Walter is the father correct?

Peter died very young in this reality and Walter used that device to go to the alternate reality, snatched the alternate Peter, and raised him as his own son.

Also, this didn't come out of the blue in the finale, either. I believe that Walter hinted that Peter had been very sick as a child in at least one other episode. I believe he died when he was 9.

I think it's safe to assume that there is another Walter inhabiting "Earth 2" and that he's severely pissed off. He's likely a genius and just as unstable as our Walter, given that his son died/disappeared too. A showdown seems eminent.

I'm also thinking that Jones is not dead. He did say something like "your bullets go right through me" when Olivia fired three or four rounds into his back. He looked mutated, a likely side effect of crossing over. Maybe he'll grow another torso.

A very nice ender. I've always loved alti-unvierse stuff. Can't wait to see how things unfold.

wouldnt it have been smarter if Walter had buried his 9 year old dead Peter over in the other alt reality?

i mean... then there wouldnt be a tombstone with Peter's name on it.

I don't expect that it's that easy to get things there, and Walter probably didn't try it until after Peter was buried.

Damn. I finally caught up with this, and I have to say that I loved the finale. I really hope that William Bell will become an actual character on the show, but I'm sure that's probably not likely to happen. The reveal of what building they were in was awesome.

After watching the entire second half of the season fairly close together, I feel that it was much stronger than the first half of the season. I'm really glad the show is coming back in the fall.

So who's been watching Fringe this year? I've really been digging it so far, and I think they are doing a good job of moving plotlines forward fairly quickly. I loved the episode last night. It was full of a ton of revelations that should have a big impact on the direction the series is going. Also, I must say that John Noble continues to be a highlight in every single episode. Walter is a great character, and he seems to be having a blast playing him.

By and large, I've liked the show. I haven't seen last night's episode yet, though. I'll probably watch it tonight.

I believe I've mentioned some of the issues I've had with the show previously, but the most glaring is the seemingly intelligent (and mobile) slug-like looking thing that was supposed to be a much-enlarged common cold bacteria. LAME. Oh, and the pilot was lame, too. Otherwise, it's been fun.

Oh, and, if I can segue any more, I've been watching X-files lately. I haven't seen it, since, perhaps the original run, and it's been on SyFy late at night, so I set up the DVR. I came in at the tail end of S1 and have been immensely enjoying S2. The episode with Peter Boyle as a guy who can see how people will die was just as good as the first time I saw it. Heck, S2 of X-Files is some great television. Period.

This show just keeps pumping out quality episodes. I loved the flashback episode a few weeks ago (complete with retro titles!), and last night's episode shook things up a little bit. I wonder what Peter will get up to now that he knows (part of) the truth.

It was a good episode, but I'm not sure I totally bought Peter's reaction. Were I in his position, I'd probably be all "WTF!?" and demand an actual explanation. Were that the case, though, then we wouldn't have tense drama in the weeks to come.

Some of the Zoners at AiCN are saying that Fringe is as good as, or better than, Lost. I think that it has some good episodes, and the mythology seems pretty spiffy, but I have some issues with it that I'll go into another time.

Okay, I have to say that an episode where Walter is telling a story was a pretty good idea. The noir detective story musical thing that resulted was quite a bit of fun. Also, Walter smokes something he dubs "Brown Betty" in the episode.

I'm maybe halfway through it. Tried watching it at 11pm or so and fell asleep. Haven't been able to get back to it yet, but I was enjoying it a lot.

 Anybody watch the series finale?  I really enjoyed the way it ended.  I was expecting a Lost-type finale, but was pleased that they had decent closure to the series.  Now I'm just pissed that the show is over.

Turn your head and cough!
