Cute Fringe homage to Back to the Future, esp. the reference year of 1985, when BTTF was in theaters alongside Christopher Lloyd's appearance.

Has me contemplating the general idea of time travel in fiction. Time travel backwards at its heart embodies the desire to change outcomes that have already come to past. Time travel forward has the core desire to adventure to a place unreachable. In reality we can do both, ironically, change outcomes and adventure beautifully at that place where past and future converge!

Overall, I'd have to say Fringe has been on a slide this season.
