Whomever is behind the curtain clearly has their act together
15 March 2011 | by See all my reviews

Once again we see that someone with a solid grounding and background in sci-fi is at the helm. This episode takes regular science, the laws of physics, gravity specifically, and turns them around with a "what if" scenario. Then adds in the human component of a caring scientist trying to help people out, so driven in his work that he regrets the casualties he is causing, but still won't stop. Everything about this episode worked. The security details, the investigative methods, the slowly revealed plot and motivation of the scientist, it all meshed. And that's the just the main plot! The secondary issue of "soul magnets" was teased throughout the whole 43 minutes until being fantastically unveiled at the very end. And once again, all along the way we were treated to a real fan of the sci-fi genre being in control of things, keeping the story believable, but with just enough red herrings to keep us guessing too.

Well done Fringe team, well done indeed.
