Did You Know?


The whiskey William Bell is drinking when he's a cartoon is MacCutcheon, the same fictional whiskey Charles Widmore drank on Lost when he met with Desmond. J. J. Abrams was also the producer of Lost. See more »


At about 30 minutes in, when Walter broke the tube in his computer to transfer William Bell's consciousness out of Olivia, he went to his Zenith Circle of Sound stereo to get an ECL82 tube to replace it. But the Zenith Circle of Sound is solid state and only contains transistors and no tubes. See more »


Astrid Farnsworth: What you're feeling right now, it's just the effects of the LSD, but it's temporary.
Phillip Broyles: No, it's infinite.

Very Solid Entry Some Clever Ideas
16 April 2011 | by Traxman15See all my reviews

Hello Once Again: This is the Most Intriguing Episode of Fringe so far, well Done, some Very Imaginative Story Ideas--Good Pacing--Well Written--Great Acting--All In All It Bodes Very Well For the Upcoming Wind Up of this the 3rd Season! When are the Renewals for Fox Announced for Next Season? I Really Hope They Get Away from the Current Trend of Having Olivia in Trouble all the time, it is Getting Stretched Way Too Extreme, and Got Old Way Back in the Middle of Season Two! Does anyone else find these types of Episode Make you want to Yawn? The Next 2 I think will Determine if the Series Makes it any Further! I Don't see How they Could Fumble It Now--Seems to be heading into some Very Original Story Telling! Let's Hope That all the People Following this Will Watch and Push it's Numbers Way Over The Top!

Cheers T:
