Just horrible...
12 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode was just horrifying to me as a huge fan of this show. If I hadn't bought the DVDs, I would have quit watching the series. It is that bad. The break from the storyline and universe just shatters your ability to suspend disbelief and immerse yourself in the series...permanently. I cannot fathom why someone would produce such a cinematic abortion, but they should lose their job. The whole time I was watching I kept thinking "oh my God, Fringe has jumped the shark." As if that was not enough, they also have to go to the ridiculous and unnecessary extreme of showing Walter smoking a bong. As if the constant verbal references to his drug use wasn't already quite enough? That scene added no value and just served to alienate a huge number of viewers. This episode was just horrible. Unworthy of what otherwise has been a remarkable and innovative show.
