Storyline

Agent Dunham and the Bishops investigate the sudden appearance of a strange cylinder after an explosion at a construction site. She learns from an old friend that this is not the first time the cylinder has appeared and that it could disappear just as quickly. She also realizes that an odd looking man appears in several crime scene photos. It turns out that he is already known to the Government and has been dubbed 'The Observer'. Dr. Bishop has a special interest in the cylinder and tells Peter of their own special encounter with 'The Observer' years ago. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

At one point we are told a story of a Marine at Quantico in 1987. When we see him pictured, his equipment is modern and his uniform / camouflage is recognizable as the ACU. This uniform is used by the Army, not the Marines, and was issued in 2005. See more »

Quotes

Peter Bishop: He was awake until five in the morning reciting the chemical compositions of his favorite beverages to me. That was right after he finished lecturing me on how I'd squandered my above-average intellect and my substantial education. All while he was standing there naked, because he prefers the breeze.

Foxes Lessons Learn paid off with Fringe!
30 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After loosing "vanished" last year to low viewer rating (which was a great show,) Fringe appears to be a retooled version w/ more action, less political wranglings, more sex appeal and more blood and gore (lessons learned from Fox's pop show "Bones". All the quick action and great story lines like Vanished had us hooked with a thread, plus that underlining conspiracy running all the way through. Fringe is brilliant, from in every aspect - casting, writing, production, direction, right down to editing. Hopefully Fox will have faith in the show and keep it on long enough to grasp viewers this time! We love it! It would be a shame to loose this one when there is nothing else like it on Fox or anywhere else on the air! Keep the pattern going!
