Hello Fringe-dom! We were treated to a quite interesting episode last night. If it's been awhile since you've seen season 1, you may have been feeling some deja vu but not quite pinpointing that the opening clip of the episode was reshowing us something we've already seen. Of course, since we're in a revised timeline (of sorts), things were a bit different. But call me totally confused. The big point I couldn't get over is that it is 3 years later, so I'm not sure how any of it could be EXACTLY the same. But, if we can all get past that, then the other points brought up in the episode are very interesting. Plus, the title of the episode pretty much seems to be telling us, "don't worry, it's okay to be confused." So, I'll try not to harp on that too much in the recap. And, I should mention that the comedy and heartfelt moments were at an all time high in this episode, making up for the questionable case. Let's get to it!

Whew! That was an intense 2 hours to close up hopefully only the FIRST season of Alcatraz. All the little clues that were planted throughout the season seemed to pay off and culminate in this first exciting chapter of the show. And the potential unveiled for season 2 seems, now, like a logical next step to take things with a couple of personal twists along the way. Fussy baby in the house tonight, so I'm short for time. If I miss any key things, please call me out on it in the comments and we'll discuss. Let's dive in!

So, what do I start with? Oh, I think the obligatory "I KNEW IT!!" applies here! But, we'll get to that in detail later. What a fantastic episode of Fringe! They did what they do best tying the case's theme to the entire Fringe saga and advancing the plot into the next phase that should bring season 4 to its logical conclusion. Big answers were revealed, old seasons were revisited, and jaws were dropped. Can't ask much more from a Fringe episode, and this one deserves a big WOW from me!
But on an interesting "behind the scenes" note, did anyone notice that the Twitter hashtag during the episode said #WhereYouBelong? That little garage start-up of a Twitter campaign has reached some pretty public levels! At the most recent Wondercon, even Joshua Jackson was sporting a pin that showed he was supporting the Twitter campaign. And he and one of the showrunners J.H. Wyman further supported it by tweeting live during the episode last night using said hashtag. Pretty darn impressive, and ingenious if you ask me. Once again, this Fringe related hashtag was the top trending topic on Twitter for a few hours during the East and West coast feeds. All of this publicity cannot be bad for its renewal chances (which keep improving as it is).
Anyway, it's time that we get into recapping this wonderful addition to the Fringe mythology!

Hello everyone! We're back for another Alcatraz recap. I am enjoying this show, don't get me wrong. But, I have to admit I'm kind of happy the finale is next week! We got some good plot movement this week to set up the 2 hour finale, but hopefully there are some big reveals next week to keep us excited for a 2nd season (which I think chances aren't looking too good). Anyway, it was another solid outing tonight and here comes the quick recap!

Hello all and welcome back to Alcatraz for a hefty helping of Auntie May's Ribs! Decent episode tonight that was intended to precede the past 2 episodes we saw. My DVR had it labeled as episode 10, but we all know it was episode 8 and that's what this blog will record it as! We got a good brain dump of information on what has happened to some/all of these 63s that are showing up in the present day. And as always, the manhunt was just as thrilling. As always, we'll stick with a brief recap and then discuss some of the key talking points. Here we go!

Hello fellow time traveling, super blood inmates! So, lots of drama outside of the show itself with FOX scheduling and the Daytona 500. Last week's episode did not air and will not air until next week. So, we were treated to the 2 episodes that were meant to air together tonight on schedule. Not sure if that will impact any mythological advancements that were learned this week. Probably not. But we might lose some momentum that was built tonight. Because we got 2 pretty solid episodes with some fairly interesting tidbits about the secrets of Alcatraz! Considering it was 2 hours and I'm on a busier schedule these days, my recap probably won't be much longer. So, let's just get on with it!
