Join Chris and Darrell this week as we discuss “Fracture” – the third episode of Fringe’s second season! We reflect on whether or not we initially suspected that the case would tie into the Observers and how this episode ties into season 5. We also discuss how the last couple of scenes really help save the episode for us, and we share feedback from Rory, M.G., Patty from Canadia, ShelkyBean, and Musketeer Dad.

It’s finally time to discuss the infamous Mole-Rat Man episode, the episode that initially went down as many fans’ least favorite episode. How does it hold up fourteen years later? Do we still not care a whole lot for this episode, or do we now look back at it more fondly? We speculate as to why this episode didn’t initially go over well and, of course, share listener feedback from Rory, Patty from Canadia and her daughter Emily, ShelkyBean, Erin, and Juan!

It’s a new day on the old podcast for us as we are back to discuss the amazing season 2 premiere of Fringe! We discuss what we love so much about this episode while also acknowledging our minor frustration around certain seeds being planted in this episode that never came to fruition, and we also get some phenomenal feedback from listeners like Geoff (xforce11), new feedbacker ShelkyBean, and Patty (our favorite wacky Canadian)!

Unearthed from Fringe’s first season is this bonus episode which is, well, an episode. While it is a complete standalone story and really nothing all that special, it does give us a tiny bit of insight into some of the characters’ mindsets and their beliefs, and we both agree that the acting from guest star Alice Kremelberg is really great. We share what we think some of the episode’s most memorable moments are, and we also get feedback submissions from Geoff (xforce11), Michael, Rory, and Patty from Canadia! If you would like to be part of the feedback section in the future, be sure to hit us up via one of the contact methods listed below. We would also love to have you as a co-host for a season 2 episode, so sign up to be a co-host by visiting the community portal!

There’s more than one of everything, and that include our hosts this week. We have not two hosts talking about the climactic first season finale but once again we have three! This time, Chris and Darrell are joined by a voice that listeners of the original run of The Fringe Podcast will definitely recognize – the one and only Clint! In Fringe’s first season finale, Olivia notices a connection between The Pattern incidents while Walter and Peter retrieve the only thing that can stop Jones from his ultimate plan.
S1E19 The Road Not Taken
Chris and Darrell take the road not taken with guest Michael London (creator of Fringe Connections) as we discuss this phenomenal penultimate episode of Fringe’s first season! Olivia is once again confronted by her past as a Cortexiphan subject when she starts having strange visions of alternate versions of events and colleagues, and, much to our delight, we get to see Harris make a fiery exit!

We take a quick break from the Cortexiphan story to discuss a vampire… sort of. This vampire is engineered by science and must feed on spinal fluid rather than blood. (That’s Fringe for you!) Dive into our discussion of this myth-alone episode which features a standalone story with some loose threads to the overarching mythology. We discuss our memories of this episode and how, for some reason, we both had forgotten about its ties to ZFT.
S1E17 Bad Dreams

Imagine having a nightmare in which you murder someone only to wake up and discover that it really happened… or did it? Dreams aren’t always literal, after all. Join us as we discuss one of the best episodes of Fringe’s first season, the second episode of the show that dives into Olivia’s past as a Cortexiphan subject. We discuss our thoughts about the connection that Olivia shares with Nick Lane as well as the connection that she shares with Peter of which Walter seems to be somewhat aware, how much of this episode we remembered since the last time that we watched it, the big reveal at the very end of the episode, and so much more!

Get ready as we unleash our discussion of this episode of Fringe! We both agree that, despite its dubious science, this is a decent stand-alone episode, and we, as always, think back to our thoughts when we first saw it and whether or not we feel any differently now. We talk a lot about the character development and growth that we see from Walter and discuss whether his heroic act at the end is truly heroic or just another display of hubris. We also share our thoughts on the little bit of Polivia development that we get here.

Get in touch with your inner Observer child this week as we discuss this exciting episode of Fringe! We reflect back on our initial thoughts when we first watched this episode, including wondering whether or not the Child (also known at the time, by us at least, as CBK) was an Observer and what that implied if so, if Olivia disliked yellow M&Ms because they reminded her of Cotexiphan, what the deal is with Eliot Michaels, and so forth!
