    The Fringe team investigate bodies with creatures attached to it. Olivia, Peter and Broyles discover that the case is linked to a dangerous organization.

    Sounds very X-Files tonight. Hope it's better than it sounds.

    If the ratings on Wikipedia are to be beleived then this show might be in alot of trouble when it comes time to renew it.

    ^

    My own personal take on it is that this season isn't nearly as good as the first one.

    Yup. That scene was right out of X-Files, all right.

    Probably not. It's in a highly competitive time slot which FOX has acknowledged and it is doing better in that time slot than anything FOX has had there in years. It's doing 30% better than what FOX had their last year. Plus, it gets a 25% ratings bump with DVR.

    Maybe the worms are being cultivated to be used against the people from the other universe.

    I wonder if these worms could cure Aids.

    I can't remember a less-interesting episode of this series. I absolutely do not care one iota about how it all turns out -- except, perhaps, for the sole purpose of writing a review for the episode. Put simply, this episode sucks snakes.

    EDIT:
    Very good scene between Astrid and Walter at the market.

    Agreed, that was some nice character moments between Walter and Asteroid.

    He is a very convincing genius, essentric, and half crazy scientist.

    Why not just give him a cell phone?

    Noble is terrific in this role. He really should get an Emmy for his performance.

    Did that basketball playing kid commit suicide when he told Peter about the drug?

    I can't believe he put a tracking device in his neck. :lol: The snakes were sure gross but I felt that the episode had a lot more potential than it used. Sadly, I have to give it an "Average." I enjoyed it of course but it wasn't as good as weeks' past.

    I thought for sure we'd get another "Massive Dynamic" ending where this is more of William Bell's doing to prepare for the invasion.
