I really hope Fringe get a 5th season

Fringe is one of my fav TV show atm. Not the best , some episodes are duds but overall it's really really good TV. Too bad it doesn't get the rating it deserves ( why the fuck a friday night FOX ? ) because the team behind it are really dedicated to do their best.

My point is last episode : Letters of Transit.



It's one of those "weird" episode that got nothing to do with the main arc. Basically , it is set in a "Big Brother-Terminator style " 2036 , humanity was overtaken by The Observers and the few "free" humans are struggling for freedom. Following 2 future Fringe agent that got their hands on Walter frozen in amber after the 2015 collapse , the race is on to free the rest of the team while avoiding Observers and the "Loyalites" ( humans doing the Observers dirty job ).

While i'm not sure if they plan a futuristic spin-off of the serie upon cancellation ( on another channel i mean ) or just want to give us a glimpse of what could be ( if doomed after season 4 ) , this episode wins on so many level. Either on recurring characters or story development , it's gold but they still had to wrap it in a high-budget & " i can't believe they didn't keep that story for a movie after the serie is cancelled".

Henry Ian Cusick (Desmond in Lost ) is an awesome John Connor-like dystopian futur leader. Actually , acting - action - story - cinematography are all in sync. THAT'S FUCKING GENIUS.



Why the hell doesn't FOX support Fringe more ? I know it's not the first time ( Firefly says HI ) but i guess they rather broadcast another singing reality crap show. Alcatraz sucked.

My bigger WTF is why 2 Broke Girls got some many followers. Either people are dumb or the specific broadcast spot is meaningful. I know lotsa people will DVR Fringe but does that actually count ?

Oh yeah ... BTW , that episode of Fringe got one of the coolest ending

Spoiler:


srsly , wake up and realize Fringe is awesome and that it would fare better given a better spot and if you wouldn't take break here and there ( 2 months around xmas and 1 month in feb-march , 2 episodes finale in 2 weeks ). Get some balls and dedicate yourself to your shows !!!

Fringe really does deserves a 5th season. Money-wise , it's close to the 100 episodes syndication rule so at least make it a 13 episodes all-out bang final season.

The twist involving the girl being Peter and Olivia's daughter was utterly predictable. I saw that coming a mile away. But that didn't make the final scene any less moving.

Last week's episode will go down as one of my favorite episodes of the show and now if the show doesn't get renewed, I'll be PISSED! I love what next year's story line will be: the fringe team vs the observers! It's going to be EPIC!

The episode was a nice tease for next season (if there is a next season) leaving us with several dangling questions: what happened to Olivia? Apparently William Bell did something to her, what was it? And finally: how the hell is William Bell even alive to begin with?!!

Well the fact that it has not been renewed yet AND that they have filmed to different endings to the season is not looking good for the show.

Fox is just not capable of having a successful show like this. They will spend millions and millions for Seth McFarlane and his bullshit shows but they have fucked Fringe over constantly. The execs at Fox need to be put to sleep in amber permanently.

If Fringe were on any other network, it never would have lasted beyond 2 seasons.

Indeed. The fact that this has had 4 full seasons shows that Fox does indeed support and love this show more than most of its others. While I would like it to get a final season (perhaps a shorter 13 episode one to wrap things up), 4 seasons is more than I would have ever expected in this day and age for a show like this.

Sci-Fi would be the proper place for it. Hell USA could pull it off better than Fox. Fox is just a mismanaged barrel of assholes.

It never would have been on any of those channels because it's too expensive a show for those channels to produce.

Funny, I was just about to make a new Fringe thread, "Fringe: The Final Season." Maybe we can get the title changed, since, according to co-showrunner J.H.Wyman, we should hear whether or not they're gonna get renewed within the week and he's 99.9% certain that it's gonna happen. .

Grant it, it'll probably only be 15-episodes, but I'm very confident they could close it out in time...

Errrr....definitely don't think it was meant to be a "twist," more like a "reveal," I suppose, but even then, I don't think it was meant to be a big secret. I mean, she looks exactly like Olivia...
