Trivia

"Fauxlivia" identifies Ronald Reagan as the male star of Casablanca (1942), implying that Reagan, and not Humphrey Bogart, was the star of that movie in the alternate universe. In real life, Warner Brothers did plant a press release in the January 5, 1942, "Hollywood Reporter" announcing that Reagan, Ann Sheridan, and Dennis Morgan were all slated to appear in Casablanca, but internal Warner Brothers memos indicate that none of those three were ever in serious consideration for the movie, and producer Hal B. Wallis considered the role of Rick Blaine to be Bogart's from the time the source play was acquired for film adaptation. See more »

Decent script, super Olivia, well balanced episodic and heavy arcs, interesting character development, emotional scenes, welcome guest
15 January 2011 | by (France) – See all my reviews

An other child abduction driven story ? Indeed but when it comes to Fringe you can be sure it'll be a little weird. However my new reference in the genre is Dexter's Lost Boys so saying that my expectations were great is almost an euphemism. But as I root for Olivia and embraced the red side I could only enjoy the ride. First even if the script could have been more exciting it had enough twists to thrill from time to time. Second Anna Torv was in great shape and Olivia was as dynamic and smart as in the premiere. Third the episodic contents was well mixed with the parallel arc. Her actions influenced the opinion other characters had and in the end it should influence her fate. Fourth it was enlightening to learn more about Philip Broyles and consider the father behind Lance Reddick's wax figure. Seeing major characters in a different light is always interesting and layer their development, making things even more unpredictable. Fifth the scenes could have been more heartbreaking but a few of them were fueled with diverse emotions and the children well played their part. Last but not least one of my wish was granted and you should really enjoy the return of someone Olivia met during her journey. The ensemble cast is inspiring in general. What a great way to represent diversity and convince people to care about each other instead of fighting for nothing ! Still the show weaknesses were also part of The Abducted, like the lack of depth in the writing, but overall it was a relatively good episode. I wish it had been scarier or even more dramatic but Fringe is not The Dex-Files so for now let's appreciate the show for what it's. Moreover season 3 proved that their skills have matured so it can only improve and that's definitely a sweet thing. Want some candy ?
