Actually that might be another beef of mine.

This whole show is the anti-Scully. She was always skeptical no matter what on X-Files, whereas NOBODY acts surprised by anything on Fringe.

Nobody. I could understand the main cast getting used to bad weirdness but NOBODY seems shocked or surprised by anything happening.

So yes, I do think he could be tried in court for murder with mind control.

I think that everyone but Walter has their moments where they're mortified initially... but after everything they've already seen - They know it's happened so it's not like "That can't happen" and they go about figuring it out.

Not really.

I'm over halfway through season 2 and I can't remember the last time anyone including bystanders acted shocked by anything happening.

the only person who wasn't really shocked by finding out about the shite that happens with the Fringe team is Walter and that's b/c he had been doing crazy arse experiments years before their creation.

BS. I've watched over 30 episodes in the last week and almost nobody seems truly shocked by anything.

Not sure which show you watched.

Sorry but yes it is.

Nothing to get all up in arms over. I've still enjoyed pretty much every episode except 1. The other one, I just didn't understand the point of saying the kid got off with counseling. I still liked that episode just not the last 30 seconds.

off the top of my head

people were pretty damn shocked when Olivia flew the hell out of that crashed car to start season 2.

The wife freaked the frick out when her husband turned to dust in the episode where the shadow alien was killing people.

When that girl caught fire in the middle of the street people were pretty damn weirded out.

When people started dropping dead at the wedding everyone was scared shitless.

No actually they weren't. Given the fact she appeared out of nowhere, the cops around the scene showed almost no shock.

It doesn't happen in every episode but plenty of the time almost nobody questions anything.

Many issues. I've said I disliked one episode and 30 seconds of another. Stop getting your panties in a wad if someone doesn't fall down in orgasmic ecstasy for every second of Fringe.

I have nothing invested in your liking this show or not, my panties are far from in a wad as you say. I am just noticing you complain a lot. i don't think fringe is a flawless show and there are shows i would rank higher on my list. i have no problem with you not enjoying it but the majority of your comments have been negative enough that i wonder why are you still going.

One thing did bother me a bit in the last episode {Road Not Taken}. Olivia picking the lock to get into that attorney's office



quote:

Hmm.... the old Fringe Unit shutdown to start out season 2. That is straight out of X-Files. At least with X-Files, half the time there was no real evidence of what happened in the episode.

In Fringe, they have plenty of evidence to support something weird as hell happened or was stopped.

They killed Harris only to replace him with a whole panel of assclowns. I don't like this angle. Not one bit and especially not right after getting rid of that prick Harris.




quote:

I have a huge problem with the ending of "Of Human Action."

I don't even understand why they had Peter say that the kid would get off with just some counseling. There was no point to us even finding out his punishment.

The kid kills several cops in cold blood and he gets counseling. It would possibly be one thing, if the drug he took caused serious aggression but they never even mention anything like that.

That kid should fry.

That pissed me off. As I said, there was no real point to even mentioning he would get off with counseling. I wish I knew why the writers stuck that last second mention in there.

Wow 4 things in 35 episodes. How can I continue to watch?



And one of them I said I might have a beef which means I don't yet but I might. So your massive list of 3 small things doesn't really add up to me hating on the show after 35 episodes.

Hell, as PsychTiger knows, I could find 15 things to hate on per episode of SGU or 15 things to hate on in the first 15 minutes of Terra Nova. Don't get me started on riding motorcycles at night in the jungle.

By the way, I'm not sure I have ever had as big a turnaround on a character as Walter.

As I have said before I hated him so much as Denethor, it clouded my judgment of Walter. I think one of the reasons I stopped watching was Walter.

Now I love his character.

He does such an amazing job portraying an almost child like excitement. Noble is very good actor.

Additional evidence for this is how much you hated him as Denethor.

The fact that I've made only a few negative comments over 35 episodes is POSITIVE.
