The season finale of Fringe was so beautifully and brilliant executed as usual.  The timeless sci-fi question of  parallel universe / alternate universe / multiple universe was addressed in the best way that I’ve seen done in a really long time.  Superman had his Bizarro World and Fringe has it’s “sweet spots” to travel to the alternate universe.  I am beginning to wonder if JJ Abrams is taking this whole alternate universe/time travel a bit too far with his projects since LOST and Star Trek was all over this stuff.  Doesn’t he realize that the die-hard Sci-Fi fans would just eat him alive because it only opens doors for more questions than answers?

The last scene of the season finale was the revealing of Leonard Nimoy as William Bell and agent Dunham realizing that she was standing in one of the Twin Towers still standing.  New York Post front page indicates that the White House was destroyed not the World Trade center, stock market has been closed for 21 days (from possible attack), and JFK didn’t die in an assassination in Dallas.  Eerie and super cool at the same time.  What a way to end the season!

Okay, so the new season of Fringe started this week.  This is probably one of the greatest shows on tv right now, next to 24, House, The Kings, and of course, The Simpsons.  Hence, this is the second time I am actually taking the time to blog about Fringe. 

I think JJ Abrams really found a perfect show for him to let his imagination loose and not be criticized for it.   I think the main reason why he was losing so many audience with his other show LOST, might’ve been the fact that the “unexplained” was explained by something sooooo ridiculous that the rest of the show and the plot became a suspect.   But don’t you worry, I believe they still have THREE more seasons to come up with more crazy story lines and twists.  Seriously, the only good thing about LOST these days, is my friend’s blog about the things that are lost on the LOST and some things that are lost in real life as well.  Pretty entertaining!

Well with Fringe, JJ Abrams, can be as far-fetched as he wants to be.  The entire show is based on the paranormals, the unexplained, the government/big corporation conspiracies, and the irrationals of the world as we know it.   Fringe has covered array of sci-fi topics, such as, the possible existence of aliens, teleportation, humans having super natural powers, bio-weapons that can close all the orifices of a person, and so much more.   Every show I am totally engrossed in the lives of the characters and can’t wait to see how they will develop these intricately layered plots.  Agent Olivia Dunham is one of the best actresses on tv right now IMO, and Walter, is probably one of the most entertaining characters.  I mean they have a freaking cow named GENE on this show (very clever I might add).  Seriously, is it possible to NOT like a show with a cow??????

Here are some of images that are flashed when they go into the commercial breaks.  I even LOVE these!!!

Over the Xmas break, my husband made me watch all of the “fringe” episodes that were recorded on our DVR. I don’t deal well with scary/suspenseful things, because I actually do get scared. But this “x-file“-like show has become one of my favorite shows along with “the mentalist“. But since I have a clear love and hate relationship with all things JJ Abrams, I’m sure eventually this show wouldn’t be any different from all his other creations. But for now, “fringe” has totally captivated me with, brilliantly written storyline/plot, characters with “depth/dimension”, and the acting is pretty decent as well. Yes, even Pacey (Joshua Jackson) from “dawson’s creek“. “I don’t want to wait till our lives to be over….” I know you hear it too.
