Storyline

The FBI teams up with a formerly-institutionalized scientist - who was performing experiments on the fringe of real science - and his son to investigate weird crimes that are seemingly part of a larger pattern, and may be connected with a global company called Massive Dynamic. Written by Ron Kerrigan <mvg@whidbey.com>

Trivia

At the start of the second season, a new character, Junior FBI Agent Amy Jessup (Meghan Markle), was introduced. She was a major focus in the plots of the season's first two episodes (a piece on Buzzfeed said that Jessup was introduced to be a "a new governmental foil for Olivia Dunham to spar with, and a potential love interest for Peter Bishop"), but after that, she was never seen or mentioned again. In 2014, Markle shared her theory about what happened to her character: "That role was always crafted as being recurring or a series regular. Akiva Goldsman was directing those first two episodes, and he'd been doing all that DaVinci Code stuff [Goldsman wrote the screenplays for 2006's The Da Vinci Code and 2009's Angels & Demons], so this idea of how science and religion coexist was very much in the zeitgeist. I think it ended up being a storyline that scared off the studio or network, so Amy just evaporated. I was intending on being [in Vancouver, where Fringe filmed] for a while, but she was just phased out. Amy maintains this air of mystery and I kind of think fans assumed she was going to pop back up again--like Amy was the one behind all of the Fringe mysteries," she said, laughing. Markle went on to play a lead role on seven seasons of "Suits"; in 2018 she married Prince Harry of Britain. See more »

Goofs

Beginning in season one, establishing shots show the teams headquarters to be in a skyscraper which title cards identify as the "Boston Federal Building." However the building shown is actually Hancock Tower, a privately owned office building which is one of the most recognizable landmarks in Boston. The FBI is located in One Center Plaza which is across the street from Homeland Security office located in the John F. Kennedy Federal Building located downtown at Government Center. Both buildings are in direct proximity to Boston City Hall, a city courthouse, police station, local NBC/CW television station and immigration offices. See more »

A perfect concoction of intelligence and feelings
30 August 2013 | by flashcortexSee all my reviews

I started watching the show just when the first season was heading towards its end, and frankly I was taken aback. It was the perfect show for me, a heavenly combination of drama, action, thrills, science, fiction and characters that you can so easily relate to. You don't even notice how fond you grow of them. I've stuck with the show until the very end, and yes, there are some twists here and there that could've been dealt differently but the show ha maintained it's quality. It's not easy to watch and it's definitely not that easy to keep track of all the cases or events that come to happening but the complex nature of the show is very unique. And in a way beautiful.
