    I can't believe that I'm writing the opening commentary to the second-to-last of our discussions. The Fringe Team only has three hours left to defeat the Observers!

    :eek:

    This week's TV Guide has a pretty good article on Fringe's final hours, without really giving away too much. But I do have the feeling that it'll be pretty good. At least I'm hoping.

    I also hope we have a good turn-out for our final threads. It's been a tremendous amount of fun, especially this season.

    Hopefully the final three hours will be better than the rest of the season. There were some exciting moments, but so far I've found most of the first ten episodes kinda on the lackluster side.

    Sadly, this has been my general impression so far as well. There have been some exciting moments, and the last couple with the kid have kicked things up a notch, but overall THE FINAL SEASON hasn't been as grand as I expected. I've been especially disappointed with Oliva's role this season; she's almost seemed like a side character. I anticipate the final three episodes will be more Fringe-worthy and wrap the series up in a satisfying way, watching it all at once without hiatuses & commercial breaks.

    That said, I'll definitely be getting the season on DVD/Blu to complete my collection, and it will possibly play better that way.

    Let's hope that Walter doesn't achieve an 'altered state' and morph into an ape.

    OK, here I go with the requisite, time-travel questions... If Captain Mindshifter just traveled back to the future, wouldn't he know what the outcome of his conflict with the Team is in the past?

    I hope that Arnie flick turns out to be halfway decent, grew up with the man and would like to go for another ride or two.
