Fringe gives us yet another case of the week with no apparent ties to the overarching mythology, so how do we feel about this one? Listen as we share our thoughts on this Fringe episode which… isn’t quite as down to earth as what we had come to expect. We talk about our favorite moments from the episode such as Broyles’ wholesome interaction with the young child at the restaurant and our appreciation for the show diving deeper into Broyles’ backstory. We also share some amazing feedback from listeners like you, feedback from Ross, Geoff (xforce11), Eric, and Patty from Canadia!
Although it sort of abandons the overarching mythology again and gives us what is more or less a standalone story, “Dream Logic” is still a strong episode of Fringe, giving us some great character moments and symbolism. We (Chris and Darrell) share our thoughts about this episode and what we first thought about it vs. what we think now. We share our favorite moments such as Olivia opening up to Peter about the death of Charlie, the episode’s many uses of colors such as red and green, and so much more! Be sure to stay tuned for the entire episode because we also share some great feedback from listeners including Eric, ShelkyBean, Pavla aka Polla, Geoff, and Patty from Canadia!

Momentum can be deferred, but it must always be paid back in full, and, after the last two episodes of the season, this episode certainly pays it back! We finally get one of the big season finale cliffhangers resolved – what Olivia and William Bell talked about in the Redverse – and also get a plethora of burning questions answered. It all comes to a head (see what we did there?) when our hero is broken and defeated and the bad guys have seemingly won.
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!

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.
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.
