Did You Know?


While talking to his fellow diner, Dr. Silva states that he is quoting Samuel Clemens. Samuel Clemens is the real name of Mark Twain, suggesting that in the alternate universe, Twain was still a famous writer, but never took a pen name -- another way in which the alternate universe is very similar, but slightly changed.

When Dr Armand Silva is at the Airship "port" bar with the first victim, he swaps drinks, his glass has a red straw/stirrer in it, for the victim's drink, whose glass has no straw which would be very hard to miss. See more »

Precious bug is my friend, light horror, conventional story, refreshing format, surprising character development
12 February 2011 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I'm invincible ! You know you've seen way too much movies when you can't help quoting GoldenEye and are able to list at least 10 productions featuring bugs, Starship Troopers being your very first reference. Immortality was in the same vein as the good old The X-Files episodes starring creeping crawling creatures and other less than human beings. Do your part, squash a bug ! What's wrong with you people ? Before watching this installment I felt like drinking a refreshing glass of water but now I think I'll wait at least 24 hours before doing so. Indeed some disgusting scenes were featured and the last should definitely appeal Zerg players. Still they could have made things even more disturbing and scary. Do they censor their gore creativity on purpose ? How disappointing ! I hate when a show is shy on horror elements when there's the potential to frighten the audience. A naked woman trapped in a giant spider web ? A man mutating into a mantis ? I'm no teacher's pet but I have learned my lesson and consider Fringe should take things to the upper level. The writing was just too conventional and only the surprising format made it more interesting. However there's no doubt that the character development was unexpected and unlike before you'll have to wait for the very last minute to comprehend what the writers had staged for us. It's not a lot but it's our life. The mere viewers we are can only be entertained but when it comes to Fringe I expect much more ! And as a good bug is a dead bug I think it's time for your devoted servitor to sign out.
