A touching episode. Amazing.
4 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

I see a lot of TV shows, practically everyone with an +8.0 rating in IMDb, so, took a time in my agenda to star viewing this show and I'm not disappointed, specially after this magnificent episode. Very touching, truly special this chapter and the performances and the development of all the characters of this show is getting better with each chapter. It's not easy to find a good sci-fi show with this kind of "feelings", and Fringe is capable to do that. I start to see this show because J.J Abrams was one of the producers and I need to hear the amazing compositions by Michael Giaccino (this duo on Lost was superb). I'm not usually do reviews on chapters, but this one deserve it. Excellent writing. Superb.
