I assume there's going to be a flashback episode of some sort later on, explaining how exactly the Observers took over, but as for last nights show? It was grand, and I applaud Fringe for mixing it up yet again (even though this series was probably never really meant to be) but it just didn't feel like the Fringe I've been watching for years.




i really hope they do do a flashback ep it would be a good idea, its a bit strange that they've jumped ahead to this for their final season .

Desmond's decapitated but still alive head really freaked me out.

Solid epsiode though. Even if I'm still not fully on board with the whole future setting.

The reunion with Broyles got me more than Etta's death. Mostly because I think they'll resurrect her somehow before the finale.

And mostly because I love Broyles.

I didn't really care about Etta's death, because it's hard to give too much of a shit about a character who's only been in half a dozen episodes or whatever.

That's one of the big problems for me with the last couple of seasons of Fringe - it's become far too po-faced. I liked the first couple of seasons because it was a but silly, a bit scary and a bit of fun. Increasingly it's come to feel like Lost and Heroes ('find the tapes - save the world' seems like a bawbag hair away from 'save the cheerleader - save the world' to me), in that it's a different programme to the one it was at first. I don't really care about uber-bad-guy baldie, I preferred it when the baldie was a guy who observed for reasons unknown and asked for sandwiches with loads of jalapenos. I preferred it when Walter was a vulnerable guy getting off his chops and talking to a cow rather than some kind of resistance fighter.

I'll stick with it because we know the end is coming, and in spite of my criticisms it's still decent enough telly, but I doubt I'll ever end up buying it.

I felt pretty much the same right up to this episode you're currently discussing (I'm on US speed so a couple of eps ahead). I still miss them investigating Fringe cases and all the alternate Universe shenanigans but I really like where they seem to be going with this season now. I reckon at it's conclusion I will have enjoyed it more than I did season 4 which had the most pointless partial retcon in the history of TV.

really enjoyed the last ep - really surprised they killed Etta so early on esp as mom & dad have only just found her again.

Loved the last episode where Walter has created a 'pocket universe'.
Also loved the way Peter is developing after inserting one of the others computer chips into the back of his neck. It's obvious where this plot thread is going but it'll be a thrill ride to witness.

Walter's vlogs were brilliant.

It's very Neo vs Agent Smith isn't it?

Totally, and you could see it coming a mile off. But for all it's unoriginality in this last series - I still love it.

Anyone here? Anyone? Hello?

Anyway, apparently Sky1 are doing a simulcast for the finale. So it'll be 01.10 on Saturday morning.

Just a heads up.

I don't think I like the show that much. It's recording so I can probably wait till the next day.

Oh no, I'll not be watching then either. Will Sky+ it and watch it on Saturday morning, but at a more respectable time.

Just finished the final 2 episodes. I thought it was quite low key, but still enjoyable. The final season as a whole was a step down from the others for me, especially the 2nd and 3rd seasons.

Also, John Noble is awesome. I had a little moment when he told Peter he was his most favourite thing.

Just finished Season 5 myself, I really liked the low key ending as that's probably how it would happen in any case in terms of their ignorance (trying not to spoiler here). I think they could have stretched it out to another couple of episodes but I'm also so glad they finished the series properly and tied up all the loose ends unlike many other series where they just pull the plug without any conclusion so hats off to the tv studios and everyone involved in the making of Fringe for having the kahunas to follow it through. In months to come I think it will feel as if I have lost a family member now though. I'll miss Walter, Olivia, Peter & Astrid immensely.

Although I will always be able to visit them via the bluray train.

John Noble is all kinds of awesome - Walter was easily my favoutite character and performance over the last few years. His moments with Peter in the finale just showed what a fantastic actor he is - it's just criminal that he didn't receive much recognition for the role.

There was a lot to take in in those last couple of eps, what with all the paradoxes, time-travel and alternative time-lines and I'll admit it did make me scratch my head a few times and think it through while trying to follow everything else (I'll put that down to age ), but I'm just glad they had time to finish things as they wanted to. Personally, I would've been happy for them to leave it after the last series - as the focus ended with Liv's powers, cortexaphan (sp?), the Walter/Bell relationship, fringe science and the other universe - which were the key threads of the series. To then make it all about the Observer's (although entertaining), only served to demystified them. But no matter, I still got to watch Walter, Liv, Peter and co. for 13 more eps - and that's the plus for me. And to be honest I would have been happy watching a series focusing on Gene the cow if it meant that I'd get to see the gang again.

Me too.

I was also trying to work out where each of the Fringe events used in the tower attack came from, didn't get them all.

I had this done just before Christmas. As you can see I'll miss Fringe very much . Not the best image using a camera phone but you get the idea.

I thought Season 5 was very unnecessary (worried we'd get like a Babylon season 5 issue) . But fair play to them they did a grand job. Loved it and really enjoyed the 2 last episodes.

Very sad to see September buy it, but loved how they told us what happened to the original 12 Observers

Just started re-watching Fringe from the very beginning of Season 1 this week. Loving it just as much as the first time we watched it.

Watched the finale and I really enjoyed it. I don't mind admitting I teared up a couple of times.
