S3E5 Amber 31422

S3E5 Amber 31422

We are joined by special guest Conor this week as we discuss “Amber 31422,” the episode in which Olivia’s true self finally comes more fully to light. We talk about our favorite moments and the many shoutouts to season 1, and we share some incredible feedback from listeners like Geoff (xforce11), Anna (Not Torv), Eric (or Eric from Pennsylvania as you prefer), ShelkyBean, and Patty from Canadia!

S3E4 Do Shapeshifters Dream of Electric Sheep

S3E4 Do Shapeshifters Dream of Electric Sheep

Things are definitely heating up in the Blueverse as Foelivia/Fauxlivia takes things to the next level to secure Peter’s trust and we learn that Senator Van Horn has been a Shapeshifter this whole time! Join us and special guest Sarah Clarke Stuart (author of Into the Looking Glass: Exploring the Worlds of Fringe) as we discuss “Do Shapeshifters Dream of Electric Sheep?”

S3E3 The Plateau

S3E3 The Plateau

We return to the Redverse for this episode to witness quite the plateau, but fear not – this season isn’t about to plateau anytime soon! We are joined this week by our friend Erin to discuss Milo Stanfield and how his ability seems to be the precursor to what the Observers do. We also talk about Olivia and how her true self is beginning to breach through the Fauxlivia/Foelivia facade.

S3E2 The Box

S3E2 The Box

We are back to the Blueverse and are discussing “The Box” in this episode of the show, sharing our thoughts on the infuriating but fun dynamic between Peter and Foelivia/Fauxlivia/Bolivia/Altlivia, the great character development from Walter and the stark difference between him and Walternate, and so much more! We also share some wonderful feedback from listeners like you – Francleigh, Geoff (xforce11), Erin, Eric from Pennsylvania, ShelkyBean, and Rory!

S3E1 Olivia

S3E1 Olivia

After a bit of a break between seasons, we are back to tackle season 3, cortexifans! We are starting, of course, with the season 3 premiere, simply titled “Olivia,” which shows us the immediate aftermath of the shocking cliffhanger at the end of season 2. With Olivia trapped in the Redverse and her team not realizing it because Fauxlivia/Altlivia/Bolivia (take your pick) is undercover pretending to be her, she runs and hides from Walternate and Fringe Division, befriending a taxi driver named Henry along the way. Join us as we discuss everything that we love about this premiere.

S2E21 Over There Part 2

S2E21 Over There Part 2

Joining us for this incredible season 2 finale from the fringe of America is Patty from Canadia, and we are so excited to be talking about this episode with her! We, of course (and by we, we mean Patty), tackle some of the science in this episode and whether or not it all makes sense. We also talk about our favorite moments from this finale and how amazing Anna is in it, and we talk about aspects of the third season that this finale potentially foreshadows.

S2E21 Over There Part 1

S2E21 Over There Part 1

We are finally nearing the end of season 2! Join us as we, along with David Wu (the mastermind behind The Fringemunks), discuss the first half of “Over There,” the incredible season 2 finale! We discuss what we love so much about this epic finale and how it is truly a huge climax for the series overall, pivoting the series in a very new direction for seasons 3 and 4. We also hear from some of our Fringetastic listeners sharing their thoughts about this episode.

S2E20 Northwest Passage

S2E20 Northwest Passage

Returning to the main Fringe canon, we find out where Peter went after disappearing at the end of “The Man from the Other Side” – none other than the literal northwest, Washington State! Here he meets Sheriff Ann Mathis (one of the show’s best episodic characters played wonderfully by The Goonies’ Martha Plimpton) as he helps her investigate a string of murders that feel uncomfortably close to Newton’s M.O. Meanwhile, Olivia and Astrid help Walter deal with the aftermath of Peter leaving. Our guest host, Rachel, helps us untangle all of the references that this episode has to the classic show Twin Peaks!

S2E19 Brown Betty

S2E19 Brown Betty

Geoff (xforce11) joins us for this episode to discuss the first of four especially whacky Fringe episodes, Brown Betty, (of which we would get one each season from here on out). In this one, Walter, deeply troubled after the disappearance of Peter, tells Ella a story in which Olivia is a noir detective investigating the disappearance of Peter after he stole Walter’s mechanical heart, except, as Walter tells Ella more than once, things are not quite as they seem. We talk about our thoughts on the short musical numbers, the noir atmosphere, and the many anachronisms.

S2E18 The Man From the Other Side

S2E18 The Man From the Other Side

The Man From the Other Side is (at least in correct people’s opinions) one of the best episodes of the entire series of Fringe! Something that we had been anticipating for such a long time – the culmination of the secret that Walter has been keeping for so long and it finally being exposed to Peter. In this climactic, pivotal episode (which really, in a lot of ways, leads fairly directly into the incredible two-part season finale in a few episodes), Peter finally inadvertently discovers that he is from the Redverse, and the scene that follows is one of the best acted, most emotional scenes of the entire series, with absolutely top-notch acting from both Josh Jackson and, of course, John Noble!
