Complete drivel
23 April 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Why do American shows always have to do awful musical episodes? What's the fascination? I do not want to watch a musical, I want to watch a science fiction show.

After the cliffhanger we were left on in the previous episode they give us this insult. This episode had no redeeming features. The acting was bad, the singing was bad, and the plot was bad. It simply did not need to be made.

Brown Betty has no bearing on the rest of the series. It's literally filler. I would seriously suggest that anyone watching Fringe just watch the last 5 minutes of this episode, because you will not get the 45 minutes back that you waste.
