Trivia

Towards the end a little girl is watching a cartoon with a white lion cub. That is 'Kimba the White Lion', a 1960s Japanese cartoon show based on a 1950s manga. When Disney released 'The Lion King' that movie's similarities to 'Kimba' caused a bit of a stir. See more »

The Shadow Man

"Earthling" is another intriguing episode of "Fringe" that recalls "X Files". The plot is not well resolved and "Earthling" is one of the weakest episodes so far. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Earthling"
