Which is one of my two huge problems with what the show has become.

You don't watch characters grow for three years just to have them thrown to the side and forgotten. That's just stupid.

Then the Observers make no sense. No matter how many times people try to explain why they invaded it doesn't make sense. Why invade now? Why invade just to pollute the world even faster? If they can see every possible outcome like Peter did when he became one of them, then why haven't they caught our team? Why are there no females? And we will clearly not be getting those answers tonight.

I seriously hope this isn't the last time we see John Noble playing Walter Bishop. I'd take him doing internet spots at this point. That's how great the character and his performance is.

I agree with you totally on the invasion part, I'm STILL expecting an answer on that issue. And your last statement is also most likely on target, we probably won't learn why this happened in tonight's finale.

But I still like this season better than the fourth, but not as much as 1 - 3.

I honestly didn't see most of season 4, I had a life briefly ad didn't care to follow completely, so yes the 5th is more enjoyable.

Once the Observers started reproducing artificially, they just didn't make females since they had purged emotions and decided females were not necessary.

But where did they get unfertilized eggs from? Or did they just stockpile a google-plex of them for future use? (no pun intended).

They don't necessarily need the eggs. They create an artificial matrix in place of the unfertilized egg and insert the DNA into it.

Re: Fringe Series Finale (Discussion, Spoilers)

Hello everyone, so we've finally come to the end. It's bittersweet, but at least they got to go out their way.

I look forward to one final live commentary with all of you.

OK, I'll buy that. It makes sense, in a strange sort of way.

Call me crazy, but I really hope that they brought back Alterna-Charlie back for the finale.

No chicks and they dress like they're from the 1950s. Fun...

Still so strange to see him with hair.


Hey Quo, glad you made it to the party.
