I think I usually end up exclaiming 'Bloody hell!' at some point in each episode which is great Like the shocks and the episode of the week format but the overlying arc of 'the pattern' doesn't interest me. Love walter though, very well written character

I started watching this on Sky One mostly because of the promise of another Lost type show from JJ Abrams, but it just wasn't at that level and I stopped watching after about 4 or 5 episodes. However, the other week I noticed it was on next (after Lost) so I thought, why not? and gave it another go and I actually enjoyed it.  I think it's a good show in it's own right and it was unfair to expect another Lost-style ongoing mystery show as Fringe is more episodic and much more akin to The X Files and CSI. It's not essential viewing like Lost is but its still a good hour of TV. What episode are we up to now in the UK? How many episodes are in this season? And has it been renewed for a second season?

The latest ep was 18 out of 20, and yes it has been renewed.

Love this show, just a shame it's not on next Sunday due to Lost finale, but ah well, maybe there'll be a double bill week after

Who was the person they revealed to be behind the terrorist group that was the big reveal at the end of the latest episode? I take it we were supposed to know and be flabbergasted, but me and the missus just looked at each other and went 'who?'

I assume its the guy who created Massive Dynamic.

Sorry if this is a dumb question, but Fringe is one of those enjoyable filler shows that I usually watch when eating my dinner or something, so tend to miss a few things here and there.

The scene with Dunham and Broyles in the restaurant? Midnight I think that one was called.

CASTING SPOILER Leonard Nimoy plays Dr. William Bell His voice was at the end of Bad Dreams when Walter Bishop sat down and watched the video tape of 'Olive'.

It finishes in the U.S. this week.

The fact that it was so obvious is why I guessed it must be him. Glad I can be sure now, and HIM - I'm glad I'm not the only one.

The casting spoiler mentioned above makes sense now. As soon as the show finished I did a search on the name to see who the hell it was, and that persons face popped up.

Same here I think it must be the guy who started Massive Dynamic. I love this show even more than Lost and think its certainly becoming the next X Files its so orgional A Abrams is a genius.

I quickly lost patience and interest with Lost during series two (I know it’s apparently been awesome since) but I have to say it got annoying quickly for me and I didn’t “connect” with any of the characters or in fact like any of them, so by Series Two I moved on to Battlestar Galactica…
 
I wasn’t too sure about Fringe at the start; it was nonsense, entertaining to some degree but not fantastic, except John Noble who was instantly excellent and entertaining. However around the halfway mark the show picked up immensely, yes it’s still incredibly silly sometimes and the lead female Agent Olivia Dunham is still a little weak but Pacey has really come along since the start.
 
The second half of the series has been a blast, confusing, funny, gruesome and a little insane but still good entertainment.  I still believe John Noble remains the reason to keep tuning in, Walter Bishop has become less manic and a little bit more stable but remains his eccentric self and continues to amuse greatly whilst offering a lot of drama and angst too, the rest of the cast have settled into their roles and the last two episodes were brilliant.     
 
I await Series Two with some anticipation.

Bump!
Meghan Markle joins 'Fringe'
Actress to recur on Fox's sci-fi drama

By Nellie Andreeva

June 23, 2009, 10:28 PM ET
Meghan Markle has joined the cast of Fox's "Fringe" as a recurring.

On the sci-fi drama, set to return for a second season in the fall, Markle will play an attractive, brash and quick-witted junior FBI agent.

The Warner Bros. TV-produced series, from J.J. Abrams, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, stars Anna Torv as FBI special agent Olivia Dunham, who investigates paranormal phenomena with the help of Dr. Walter Bishop (John Noble) and his son Peter (Joshua Jackson).

Markle, who did an arc on the CW's "90210," is repped by Gersh and Shelter Entertainment.

I missed this the first time round as I didn't have Sky so I've been watching the re-runs on a Thursday night two at a time. I'm quite enjoying it at the moment and it does remind me of the X-Files in a lot of ways. Walter is an absolutely fantastic character and is being played great. I also enjoying to spot 'The Observer' in every episode. I can think of worse things to do for an hour......

I've seen it and thought it was great. The stunt at the start was brilliant, didn't see that coming. What I did see coming though was the ending of the episode though obviously this is not the time for spoilers.

Finally finished watching the re-runs of Season 1, what an ending! This show is definetly entertaining and has got better and better. So Peter died and Walter went and got him from an 'alternate universe', they'd hinted at something through the entire series but I thought maybe Walter had done the same trials on Peter that he'd done on Olivia, obviously not. The ending with Bell in Manhatten was a great way to end the season, looking forward to the Season 2 opener tomorrow now

I've heard the ratings aren't that good but the opening episode was decent.  The shape shifter storyline has been done loads of times before and parts of this seemed like a ripoff of the Angel episode lonely hearts but I still enjoyed it.  JJ is still woking on the show which surprises me.  How did Olivia survive and what did Spock tell her in the twin towers? Joshua Jackson is impressing me with his acting skills.  What did you think?

Watched the two final episodes of Season 1 on Anytime and now I see they've stuck up the first ep of Season 2. Is this a good time to jump in or have I missed far too much and should start from the beginning?

To be honest the first half of the first season was a little bland but it really picked up in the second half, I'd say watch it from the beginning though because there are plenty of story arcs you missed out on (although you've watched the Season 1 finale so a lot of the surprises were revealed)

The Season 2 opener was solid although I was a little annoyed with the writing when Olivia couldn't remember the meeting with Bell, just smacks of lazyness to me. The big reveal at the end was also clearly sign posted, me and the mrs clicked on to it straight away. It's a shame though, I liked Charlie. Looking forward to this season though, should be a blast if handled in the same way as the last half of last season.

It wasn't a bad opener by any means, but I was a little underwhelmed by the season two opener to be honest. I loved the first season, and that cliffhanger at the end was one of the best I have ever seen on television to be honest, I mean, my jaw was literrally broken from the way it landed on the floor, but, and I never thought I would say this about JJ Abrams, some of the narrative seemed lazy to me. I mean, to give Olivia amnesia and not remember her trip to the other universe just smacked of a way of not delivering answers. Now, I know it is a mystery show and I appreciate having to work for the answers (I am someone who watched The X Files for nine years so I have experience in watching a television series in this way), but really, come on, there has to be a better way than "I can't remember", it's just not on and goes way beyond being frustrating. Also, was anyone else disssapointed that we didn't get to see Leonard Nimoy in the episode, there was definitely a big hole in the episode where he should have been. On the plus side, nice to see Joshua Jackson having a big role in the episode and rising to the occasion, and although I seen the Charlie thing coming a mile off, at least it's nice to see that Kirk Avecedo is going to get some solid work this season as well. Oh and John Noble, brilliant as always.
