Fringe Pre-Season 5 Discussion





I figured since Fringe is going to be a presence once again at Comic-Con, this is a good time for a warm-up thread to discuss what comes out of Comic-Con, and other news as we creep closer to the premier on September 28. The premier title 'Transilence Thought Unifier Model-11' is enough to generate a few pages of discussion.



I'm psyched, even though we got over two and a half months until the show returns. I hope that it might be the best season yet.

It's gonna be B5 season 5 all over again. A lame telepath war and all of the filler episodes they were going to use in season 3 and 4.

Re: Fringe Pre-Season 5 Discussion

I'm wondering how the departure of executive producer/co-showrunner Jeff Pinkner will affect the final season.

Good question. When Miller and Gough left Smallville, the show took on a slightly different feel. Could be the case here as well.

I expect it to be the worst, season 4 was already horrible when they got rid of the blue universe and replaced it with the nno peter version that Peter stumbled into. Now they got rid of the red universe and Lincoln and replace it with a stupid future observer war time travel story ... blergh.

The parallel universe story, the doubles of the characters, their different life experiences etc., were what made Fringe interesting, why did they ditch all of that?

I want Walter and Olivia from the blue universe back, I don't care if new Olivia remembers the stuff from before, it's not the same, she's still a different person. I want Bolivia and Walternate back, I want her to have a happy little family with red Lincoln and Henry. I want the characters I fell in love with during the first three seasons, not the crap the writer's threw in my face during season 4 and most likely season 5, I hate what this show has become, HATE IT!

Dude, I'm with you on that. I was not overly keen on Season 4 either, but I guess what I was trying to say earlier is that I'm hopeful that since this is the final season, they make some effort to make it memorable and worthy of the mythology that they built up in Seasons 1 to 3. I could be wrong and wouldn't be surprised if I am. Just being optimistic; I always try to view the glass as being half-full.

Thanks for that, EiG! I really, really hope this is indicative that the final season will be truly memorable.

The sad thing is that this doesn't even look bad, but it's almost a new show, except for the Fringe science it has nothing to do with what we saw the last few years.

Re: Fringe Pre-Season 5 Discussion

I really like what Fringe has done over it's 4 seasons. They've given us a show that breaks out of it's own formula as we see successive alternate versions of each character, each one entirely unique and separate from the others, yet each one the same person. Because of that we've seen some spectacular acting, and gone to places no other show could take us.

I'll take this final story, set 20 years in the future over another 13 episodes of chasing monsters of the week from a dusty old lab in Harvard any day.

This show has been up and down and up and down and up, but mostly down last year. Truthfully, I'm just ready for it to be over.

Showrunner JH Wyman directing series finale

Season 5 will only have three writers. I can't find the link for it right now though. I'll have to find it later since I'm taking off for work now.

Re: Fringe Pre-Season 5 Discussion

Only three writers probably will insure a better continuity for the season, over all. I've got to admit that I'm really looking forward to this, even if it doesn't resemble the Fringe well grew to love in the first three seasons.
