Fringe: Season 5 Episode 10 - Anomaly XB-6783746 (Discussion)

Hello Fringe fanatics and Happy Holidays!  As we've discussed over the past few weeks, we know FOX is not reserving special dates for these final episodes of Fringe, so they're burning one off at the end of the year.  Of course, we can't blame them.  We should just be thankful we have these episodes to close out the show!  On the downside though, I am traveling to see family for the holidays so will be unable to provide a recap for this episode.  But, I figure we'll all be catching up on the episode at our own pace.  So, just jot down your thoughts from the episode in the comments and that's how we'll handle this episode!  I'm planning to download the episode on my iPad and watch at my earliest convenience and will try to provide some comments!  I do plan on recapping the final 3 hours of the show in January, so I'll see you then.  Merry/Happy whatever holiday you celebrate and Happy New Year!

Fringe: Season 5 Episode 9 - Black Blotter

Hello Fringe fanatics!  Welcome back as we count down to the end of the series.  Last night, we got our infamous "odd man out" episode of the season.  If this were a full season of Fringe, it would have been episode 19, but since this is an abbreviated final season we have to settle for episode 9.  A couple of the episode had dealt with Walter in an induced state and this episode was no different!  But, it was a nice device to allow us to explore the inner workings of Walter's complex mind and the internal conflict he has probably been working through for some time.  But, the most important thing that happened in the episode for me?  They addressed the timeline discrepancies!!  And anyone who has read my recaps all season and comments know that this was a big sticking point for me.  I'm not saying they resolved anything with it, but at least they addressed the issue was still there.  And we'll dive more into that in the recap/analysis below.

I'll put the disclaimer out there, I was pretty tired watching the episode last night as I had just come back from a 3 hour Hobbit viewing.  (In my defense, Fringe usually would be off the air by this point in December, but Fox is totally burning off episodes as the ratings do not help them at all)  So, if I miss something go easy on me.  And for the fact that I fading to sleep during some moments of the show, I'm going to assume that the episode was fantastic from start to finish and give it my trademark WOW rating!  So, let's dive into the recap and see what I can come up with and more importantly, what everyone else can add to the conversation!

Fringe: Season 5 Episode 8 - The Human Kind

Welcome back Fringe fanatics!  Well, depending on what you look for in your Fringe, last night's episode was either a sign of relief or a big disappointment.  For me, it was just another hour heading towards a climactic conclusion.  I've probably said it before, but this season definitely has a different feel to it due to them abandoning their formula with the "case of the week" and slow build of mythology over the season.  We have gone full-on mythology to tell one continuous tale for 13 episodes.  (They refer to it as a 13 hour movie)  I'm sure there will be a reason for taking us down the path that they did.   We must remember that Fringe, at its very core, is a love story.  And the science fiction part is just the backdrop to tell that story.  I don't think I'll have many theories or analysis this week, but we'll see when we take a deeper dive.  Let's get into it!

The Walking Dead: Season 3 Episode 8 - Made to Suffer

WOW.  They certainly pulled out all the stops for our mid-season finale!  Welcome all fans of The Walking Dead to our ongoing discussion of the gore-iffic and introspective show that we just can't get enough of.  Things certainly heated up to a "sort-of" climactic moment to culminate these first 8 episodes, but they left some key moments to come in the back half of the season.   So, we'll all be tuning in on February 10th, to see it pick right back up!  (well, that is if everyone with Verizon Fios continues to have AMC of course)   Anyway, let's dive in and discuss what happened and where we go from here!
