Fringe
« on: August 06, 2018, 04:24:36 PM »

I loved this show, one of the few I watched on live TV as it came out. I thought it was some of the best sci-fi (sci-fi horror kindof) since Star Trek/Stargate. Not a huge fan of the last season but I loved the rest of it.

Anyone else here Fringe fans? What was your favorite aspect of the show? Favorite character?

I watched some of it. Haven't seen the full series. I'll eventually get around to watching the whole thing.

Saw that TV show twice. Seasons 1-5. I believe its 5 seasons. That's how much I liked it. But its been so long since I last saw the show, so I might think about binge watching it again. Anna Torv was pretty awesome as the main character and she's pretty good in her role. Good actor. As is other actors as well.

Decent show to watch. Like X-files, only better. No offence, but the quote "The truth is out there" by Fox Mulder gets tiring  :P  >(  :sam10

Anna Torv was really spectacular. She had some challenging scenes. I think my favorite, however, was Walter. And I loved the Walter vs. Walternate storylines.

I didn't ever watch X-Files, not sure why really. But I did imagine Fringe was very similar. It's been awhile since I've seen it, too. I'm currently trying to watch a bunch of shows I've never seen before, though, so rewatches are being pushed aside for a while.

Oh you should watch the X-Files. Although it is 9 seasons long, its pretty fun to watch it to pass the time. Should warn you though. Some episodes can be pretty scary, but the show itself is good.

Oh yeah!
Love that series! Got the DVDs at home and think I've seen it about two or three times? Some ep's more than others too...

Favorite char? Well *hrmm* have a look at what actor I've chosen to in the RP-section for my char Mike ;)

Then again, I really love the entire cast. They're good in their interaction with each other, how they portray their char's, char development over the seasons...
And how Anna Torv and John Noble manage to do those subtile changes in their char's when doing their alternate version! It's Olivia and Walter alright, but then they're not. Great acting!

Fringe ... I've seen a few episodes and no one in a row, so I can not give an opinion about this series

I liked it, and I was fond of Walter, all the actors were good in their roles and it was interesting.
Do watch X Files, great series, as well as Warehouse 13 my personal favourite

I loved the episode where Olivia's car shows up, then near the end she comes flying thro the windscreen, totally unexpected.   I did like Alt Olivia as well.

Oh I'm not concerned about scary, haha. Is it scarier than Fringe? How about Sleepy Hollow (tv show)? I'm less into horror/thrillers now than I used to be, but I still enjoy a good scare now and then  :)

And how Anna Torv and John Noble manage to do those subtile changes in their char's when doing their alternate version! It's Olivia and Walter alright, but then they're not. Great acting!


Yes, that was the best part about Fringe, the alternate universe dynamic. They did such a great job portraying their characters differently. In a lot of shows the actors may have to do something similar once in a while, for a short time, but these guys had to do it regularly for episodes at a time! They did such a great job. Oh and I loved the dirigibles. haha

Do watch X Files, great series, as well as Warehouse 13 my personal favourite

I like Warehouse 13, too! Only seen it once all the way through. Such a different atmosphere to that show, though. Funny and lighthearted, and very fast paced. I like both, but I think I prefer the kinda darker more serious atmosphere, and slower pace of Fringe. I think Stargate is a balance in between. Not dark, but not super funny and lighthearted either. And a good paced show, in my opinion. Sorry, I guess getting a bit  :OT   Haha not sure the etiquette here yet

Do not worry too much, we all do it, so long as we do not go too far from the subject we are ok.

In Italy Fringe did not get so much success so much that they relegated him in the late evening up to remove it directly :argh!

This is why I have never seen it all or anyway in sufficient number of episodes to make a judgment
