*OFFICIAL* Fringe M/TV Board rewatch thread (current episodes discussion p. 38)


On the menu this week:

Season THREE.

Episode 1: "Olivia" - The third season spent its time alternating between the prime and parallel universes, and "Olivia" was placed in the latter. This is indicated in the introduction of the episode, with the same red screen used in the last season's finale, "Over There". "Olivia" follows the cliffhanger left by the second season, in which Olivia Dunham is trapped in the parallel universe. The episode explores the consequences of Olivia's abduction by Walternate, and her attempt to go back to the prime universe.

Episode 2: "The Box" - The third season spent its time alternating between the prime and parallel universes, and "The Box" was set in the former. It followed a mysterious box that when opened, killed whomever heard it. The fringe team of Fauxlivia (a doppelgänger of Olivia Dunham), Peter, and Walter investigate, with unknown consequences to the creation of a doomsday device.

Episode 3: "The Plateau" - As one of the early Season 3 episodes that takes place entirely in the parallel universe, the episode centers on Olivia, conditioned to believe she is a member of the alternate Fringe team, trying to track down a mentally unstable man that can predict the team's every move.



Discussion on this batch of episodes due to start Monday, September 22nd. Enjoy the show.


CURRENT DISCUSSION

Episode discussion begins on ~page 38 for the following episodes:

Season TWO, and these episodes:

Episode 19: "The Man From the Other Side" - The episode follows the attempts of Thomas Jerome Newton, with the help of shapeshifters, to create a pathway between the two parallel universes, while the Fringe team's Olivia Dunham, Peter Bishop, and Walter Bishop try to stop him.

EPsode 20: "Brown Betty" - As the episode begins with Peter's continued disappearance, Walter consoles himself by smoking a strain of marijuana called "Brown Betty." Most of the episode is then told from his drug-addled perspective, in which Olivia is a 1940s noir detective and Peter is a conman who ran away with Walter's glass heart.

Episode 21: "Northwest Passage" - The episode follows Peter (Joshua Jackson) as he continues to stay away from Boston after learning his true parallel universe origins; his travels takes him to a small town, where he helps the local police investigate mysterious disappearances.

Episode 22/23: "Over There (Parts 1 and 2)" - The finale's narrative recounts what happens when Peter (Joshua Jackson) is taken back to the Other Side by his real father, dubbed "Walternate" (Noble). FBI agent Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv) and Walter lead a team of former Cortexiphan test subjects to retrieve him, after discovering that Peter is an unwitting part of Walternate's plans to bring about the destruction of our universe using an ancient doomsday device.




Note to people who haven't seen the series:
Please feel free to join in at any time, but know that there will be spoilerish things discussed since this is a REWATCH. So while you may not get too many things spoiled on you for the most part, eventually the discussion will begin to tie in with future happenings on the show. So be prepared for that. However, I actually think this could be a really cool way to experience the series for the first time, so you're more than welcome to participate.





Original post:

So I've mentioned this several times for a while now, and it seems to have interested some. I'm thinking we could sort of "assign" 3-4 episodes a week (or whatever number works for the majority) and keep a running discussion going in this thread as the group navigates the series.

Thoughts? I need input on:

- How many episodes per viewing period
- Length of viewing period (one week is the easiest I think, but would it start on Sunday/Monday/etc?)
- How many would be interested
- Discussion format suggestions (discuss all 3-4 at once, an episode at a time, what..?)
- etc. (anything else you can think of?)

People in for this:
Cocomo
wish i was tebow
SouthofSouth
Fearthehat0307
Bryon Bojengles III
BaddestAndvari
Freauxzen (already rewatched; confirmed for discussion)
TigerMyth (potentially)
TigerinATL (partial participation because he's married and whipped)
UMRealist
Gugich
LSULEFTY
angryslugs
TH03
WhistlinDixie15
iluvdatiger (first time watcher)

Others who have expressed interest in doing this:
RicketyCricket
LewDawg
yurintrouble
gjackx (may be in)
BluegrassBelle (first time watcher)
jamsmiley

Anybody else who would want to is welcome. I'll try to keep a list here.

I know there have been several "I'm watching Fringe" threads in the last few weeks/months, so people like that would likely not want to rewatch it again so quickly, but who knows. And even still, they can always jump in on the discussion and contribute that way since it's still relatively fresh in their minds.

Anyway, this is the official thread to see what kind of interest there would be in actually doing this and sticking with it...I kinda feel like it would suck if there were only like 3 or 4 of us participating.

As for viewability:
quote:

Per a quick Google search, Fringe is on Netflix.

It also seems to be on Amazon Prime.

Also on Hulu Plus I believe (though possibly not season five yet).

And of course, you can always just buy the DVDs.



All I wanna know is....who's coming with me?

I say 4 per week is a good number. I don't think it's too many where people wouldn't be able to keep up. Discussion of all at once would be my preference.

I assume so as well. I'd hope at least BA so he could explain shite to us.

Last time I talked to her the owner of her restaurant she was a manager at had sold his company... to her. So basically her life has changed pretty drastically, and she's the owner of a restaurant now, I don't think she has time for TD discussion like she use to.

And Freaux, I mean participate in the thread mostly...obviously if you just rewatched the series you wouldn't have to watch the episodes again, but you could still do the episode discussions. Sort of like this is a test that you've already studied and done the homework for.

ever since I cut the chord, I find that I download stuff even less, oddly enough

Maybe it's because I keep getting promotions at work and keep making more money? iono.. (it's probably because I'm saving $70 a month and can buy a movie / tv show every once in awhile now!)
