Fringe finally brings the chills
24 March 2012 | by (Pune, India) – See all my reviews

Fringe is one of my favorite TV series currently on-air. The Science showcased may be fiction but it sure is fascinating. It's pure storytelling if you ask me. I deeply admire J.J. Abrams, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci for creating something like this. This is director J.H. Wyman's first go at Fringe and it worked wonderfully. Can't wait for episode 22 which is also gonna be directed by him.

This particular episode is very well paced and deeply involving. Technically speaking, the cinematography of Fringe is much more cinematic than say Breaking Bad or similar dramas (which i love in its own way). The Screenplay is tight, the edit is crisp and the acting right on the money. The background score revives some old motifs used in earlier episodes hence giving it a nostalgic feeling.

Emotionally, this episode works on many levels, Olivia's ongoing quest to find love in Peter. Peter's confusion about her memories. Nina's comforting words for Olivia and Walter's worries about Peter. This also answers some important questions about the timeline situation and the disbanded observer. Intriguing case about love again compliments the whole situation.

Overall i felt like reading a book about some of my favorite characters in a wonderful set-up. The story moves forward. I really hope they end it properly. Excited about future episodes!
