In the beginning teaser, when the NY Police stop the 'kidnapping', they are armed with 9mm Beretta pistols. This is a mistake. NYC Police do not carry Berettas. See more »

"Of Human Action" is a good episode of "Fringe" with an entertaining episode. The connection of Dr. Bishop with his son is a great moment of the show. The secret about the evil Tyler is a surprising plot point. My vote is eight.
