Trivia

Interestingly, during this musical episode, the two regular cast members of Fringe (2008) who have the most Broadway musical experience do not ever sing. Blair Brown (Nina) has had singing roles in Broadway productions of "The Threepenny Opera" and "Cabaret." And Michael Cerveris (The Observer/September) is better-known as a Broadway leading man than as a television or film actor; he has had lead roles in Broadway musicals such as "The Who's Tommy," "Titanic," "Assassins," "Sweeney Todd," "Lovemusik," and "Evita"; was nominated for Tonys for all but one of these; and won a Tony for "Assassins."

Quotes

Peter Bishop: [as Miles Davis' Freddie the Freeloader plays... ] Do you like jazz?
Olivia Dunham: Jazz?
Peter Bishop: Miles, Duke, Louie, John Coltrane. You can tell a lot about a person by the music they listen to. And whether or not they dance.
Olivia Dunham: Jazz- not so much, but dancing? Sure.
Peter Bishop: Well, I guess we're opposites. I hate to dance.

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.
