*OFFICIAL* Fringe M/TV Board rewatch thread (current episodes discussion p. 53)



On the menu this week:

Season Four:

Episode 19: "Letters of Transit" - The saga leaps ahead to 2036, where rogue agents from a marginalized Fringe Division recover most of the original Science Team after two decades encased in Amber. The Observers have most of the native population subjugated, oppressed and repressed as an inferior culture... but there is new hope.

Episode 20: "Worlds Apart" - Both universes begin sharing aligned disasters and it becomes apparent that David Jones is using the Cortexiphan talent from Olivia's youth to draw both universes into the same gravitational space. Fringe Divisions generate a shared investigation and come to a terrible decision - they need to end the alliance they have fostered and terminate the healing influence of the Wave Sink Device.

Episode 21: "Brave New World, Part One" - Citizens are beginning to spontaneously self-incinerate as pawns in a larger game to alter mankind's destiny. The Boston Metropolitan Area faces immolation as the power of the sun is focused on the fossil fuels below Eastern Massachusetts. David Jones makes it personal when he attacks and severely beats a member of the science team.

Episode 22: "Brave New World, Part Two" - William Bell brings his captured colleague, Walter Bishop, along as he transports his vessel full of mutant creatures to a precise spot in the North Atlantic. Olivia and Peter locate and board the vessel as Bell's plan to collapse the two universes comes to fruition. The Observer hadn't witnessed this potential outcome before now - and others need to be warned as a result.



If you don't have time to watch the episodes, check out the Fringepedia pages for each episode...they do a great job of detailing and explaining everything that happens in the episode. Here they are for this week's episodes:

Letters of Transit

Worlds Apart

Brave New World, Part One

Brave New World, Part Two



Discussion on this next batch of episodes due to start Monday, December 29th. Enjoy the show.


CURRENT DISCUSSION

Episode discussion begins on ~page 53 for the following episodes:

Episode 16: "Nothing As It Seems" - Olivia's neuropsych evaluation threatens to keep her on the sidelines while Lee and Peter investigate the mysterious aftermath of VertusAir Flt 718. This is Peter's second exposure to the case, and his foreknowledge sends the Fringe Task Force chasing after a cult determined to manipulate the evolutionary process and mankind's future.

Episode 17: "Everything In Its Right Place" - FBI Agent Lee lends his law enforcement expertise in the alternate universe to his Fringe Division counterparts assigned with the task of apprehending a vigilante connected to the remaining shapeshifters. Along the way, he gains the respect of those he meets and takes heart with his newly discovered friendships.

Episode 18: "The Consultant" - Walter visits Fringe Division in the alternate universe to lend his scientific expertise to the investigation of a recent destructive breach in the fabric between the two universes. David Jones initiates the next phase of his master plan. Colonel Broyles unknowingly raises suspicion with a DoD colleague.

Nothing As It Seems

Everything In Its Right Place

The Consultant




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)
catholictigerfan

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.

Yeah, she hasn't posted since April 17th...weird. Anybody IRL (or even FB) friends with her?

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!)
