Changing my mind a bit.
28 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't like to admit when I am wrong but it is starting (thankfully) to look like I was wrong. I believe in letting a show go through it's first season before I pull the plug and this one was very close to getting the ax prematurely...until now.

Show starts off with Olivia escaping from captivity (after noticing some clues about her masked abductors) and then contacting Charlie for a pickup only to be arrested (?) by unknown people. She wakes up in the hospital to find none other than the man that she arrested previously for molesting numerous women got exonerated and apparently promoted so now he's Broyles's boss and has been tasked with auditing Fringe division. I would be hard-pressed to find someone more arrogant and annoying (perhaps Peter Bishop?) than this fellow. Not sure why (even if he had been acquitted/exonerated) the higher-ups would put someone with such an obvious ax to grind in charge of auditing the Fringe division.

Long story shortened, Mitchell and his wife get found out although a plot twist is that Loeb says he 'saved' Olivia by abducting her and injecting her spine with some liquid...hmmmmmmm.

Although I still can't stand smarmy Peter Bishop I will/must admit the show is starting to pique my interest!
