Who is The Observer

Is this an Alien, a Government Organization, or something in between? What is the cone? What were those weapons shooting? Some have suggested, that the observer is writing in a language called Minoan, an ancient Greek language. Could this be an Atlantean? This episode left us with many, MANY more questions then answers. What were some of your observations and what questions do you have after watching this episode?

Fringe Rakes in the Ratings

In sharp contrast to the current downturn in the financial markets, Fringe experienced a ratings upswing last night, drawing in 13.36 million people. This is good news, and shows that the time slot that Fringe occupies after House is working. This is a 48% increase over the just under 10 million viewers Fringe pulled in for its premier episode.

Hopefully, this trend will continue and we will be able to enjoy this show for many moons. What do you is Fring going to stick around?

Thoughts on "The Same Old Story"

Last night brought us the second episode of Fringe and with that second episode but us more questions on what exactly is "The Pattern". Some of the main questions that i have after this episode are:

1. What role does the group that Phillip Broyles was briefing, only 45 minutes after the woman gave birth, have to play?

2. What happened to the first investigative team that Broyles mentions in this briefing to "The Group"?

3. Why is it that "The Group" is contacted and convened, before the investigative team?

4. The last scene seems to indicate that the work, started by Dr. Bishop, to grow an army of soldiers in three years is continuing. Who is carrying out this continued research and what will these grown soldiers be used for?

Massive Dynamic Building Redesign

There were some subtle differences noted between the leaked version of episode one and the premier last night. The one of greatest note was the look of the Massive Dynamic building. In the leaked version the building was very futuristic looking and was created using the Royal Ontario Museum as a reference. However, in the official episode one, Massive Dynamic is just a plain glass facade building. What building design do you prefer?

Massive Dynamic Allied With Credit Dauphine???

The premise of Massive Dynamic as a global corporation with vast ties to just about everything just cries out "BAD GUY", but I was holding out hope (and I still am) that there may be a sliver of good within Massive Dynamic, but with the latest ad from the Fringe comic book tie in, that hypothesis lies in doubt.

In the comic book there is an advertisement for Massive Dynamic that is brought to us by "MD Outdoors" and "Credit Dauphine". You can find the reference in the above picture right under the "M" in Massive Dynamic.

I haven't been able to dig up anything on MD Outdoors, but Credit Dauphine is a direct tie in to the front organization of SD-6, the covert criminal organization that is destroyed by Sydney Bristol in another of J.J Abrams hit shows, Alias. So, with this new information in hand, it becomes clear that Massive Dynamic is certainly up to no good. Just how deep their machinations go waits to be seen. What do you think?

Strange Events - Commercial Review

The newest commercial for Fringe is called "Strange Events." Take a look at the youtube video of this commercial, uploaded by our friends at

The interesting thing about this commercial is that there are quite a few scenes that are not any part of episode #1. The scenes that appear in the commercial seem to point to a future episode #?? that deals with a virus, chemical or some other nasty that is causing everyone on a bus to choke to death. Check out these screen captures, also provided by
