Fringe has always been a unique show. It has an intricate storyline that has a style reminiscent of the cult phenomenon, Lost, with a complex mythology and mind blowing plot twists. This past season, however, Fringe has been in a league all of its own. I’ll be the first to say that while I love the show dearly, seasons 1 and 2 weren’t exactly what we can call consistent. We had a few excellent episodes and a lot of okay episodes.
Things have changed in season 3, though. They have finally hit their stride and this season has been nothing short of spectacular. It has been a joy to watch the cast finally be given a chance to showcase their abilities better, especially Anna Torv, who plays Agent Olivia Dunham. I thought she was just an alright actress before, but this season she has more than proven herself, playing beautifully three versions of the same character. I think it’s pretty safe to say that Fringe is now one of the best shows on television. Maybe even the very best.
Tonight we will get to watch the penultimate episode of this season and if last week’s episode was any indication, things are about to get really intense really fast in both universes. Peter is in the hospital, Fauxlivia is being held prisoner by Walternate, who has every intention of destroying our universe. Olivia will have to join forces with the mysterious Sam Weiss in a desperate race against time in order to save the universe.
