Fringe: Season 2 Review

Image for Fringe: Season 2

Now with 40% more monsters

★★★★

The first season of J. J. Abrams’ show claimed it was based on possible, albeit barely plausible, science. The second season has a new mission statement: bugger science, bring on the monsters. And it’s more fun for it. The plotless meandering of season one has streamlined into a sardonic battle of oddball FBI agents trying to make sense of the nonsensical. It’s more X-Files than ever, but with a goofier edge.
