The number 47 appears frequently throughout the series. This is due to show creator J.J. Abrams directing/producing the Star Trek reboot movies (as well as show co-creators/writers Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci writing for them). It is well known in Trek lore that the number 47 appears frequently throughout the different series (from The Next Generation and forward). The story behind that is Joe Menosky (writer from TNG on) began inserting it because at his alma mater Pomona College 47 was something of a superstition: it goes back to 1964 where it originated partly in a joke-proof from math professor Donald Bentley that all numbers were equal to one another (he chose 47), and partly from the observation by a few students that the number 47 occurred more often than you'd expect it to.

Whenever a shapeshifter is wounded they are shown to bleed "mercury." However, mercury is not sticky. It would not be stuck to the bodies or clothing around the wounds, nor stain the gloves of the investigators. It would simply spill onto the ground. See more »
Strongest otherworldly show out there since x-files and 4400
When I first saw Fringe, I was immediately reminded of firstly The 4400 and secondly the X-files. Each show is similar in that supernatural incidents occur, and that only a specialized task force is capable of dealing with them. In the x-files we mostly followed the story of agents Skully and Mulder and their investigation in cases that revolved around aliens, religion and metaphysics. In 4400 it were agents Skouris and Baldwin who investigated incidents relating a group of "special" people. In Fringe, it's all about science. An investigation team researches cases where high tech inventions that border on the supernatural are being used to commit crimes, show off, or even unexplained purposes. While some cases seem to be uncomfortably similar to what we already experience in daily life, other cases are more fantastical.
There are many things to like about Fringe. The show is very professionally put together. Every episode shows a consistent progress in the storyline as the mystery unfolds. You never get the full sense of really what's going on, just as the persons in the show don't. But at the same time, you get clues and hints to what is happening, and every episode reveales a new lead that evolves the story.
The ambient music adds a thickness to scenes that would normally be tense already, and now become completely chilling.
The cast is varied and interesting enough for each viewer to have their personal favorite. Some of us will relate to the meticulous and sensible detective, while others will develop a bond with the brilliant but troubled and sometimes mad scientist. I found the acting to be very strong on all accounts, except perhaps for a few awkward interrogation scenes.
At times, so many scientific terms are being used back-to-back, that I felt like watching a Startrek Voyager episode. With Fringe though, everything is based on facts and in the rare events that things just don't make sense, the scientists in the show will assure us that they have no clue to what is going on.
