I love Fringe and never miss an episode. I also love collecting
DVD's for my favorite shows (whether or not I even watch them). If you liked the
X-Files, you will probably love Fringe. Both shows are about FBI agents that
chase weird phenomenon. Fringe is a little different, though, in that all of the
weird things are linked to the fact that one of the characters, Walter, ripped a
doorway between our dimension and another one that is very similar to ours. As
we learned in the first season, and learn more about in the second season, a lot
of weird things leak over from that universe to ours. Also, Walter and others
have done experiments that lead to weird things, which go awry. And lastly,
people from the other universe have started a war with our world, so they send
over soldiers (including shapeshifters) to wreak havoc in our world.
Although you could easily start watching this set of disks without having seen
the first season, you really don't want to do yourself the disservice of missing
the first season. Go rent or buy that one, and then come back and watch this
Each disk has some features about the episodes on that disk. "Analyzing the
scene" has the actors and production people talking about one of the episodes
and shows some of the behind-the-scenes stuff, like stunts and special effects.
There are some deleted scenes (called Dissected Files) and some commentary about
one of the episodes. There are also two other features on disk three: a gag reel
and a special about the unusual special effects on the show.

as Warner Home Video Releases
FringE: The Complete Second SEason
ON BLU-RAY(tm) AND DVD ON September 14, 2010
Loaded with Over Four Hours of Exclusive, Thrilling Bonus Features
BURBANK, CA (June 17, 2010) - When the unimaginable transpires on
screen, you know Fringe creators J.J. Abrams, Alex Kurtzman and
Roberto Orci (the team behind Star Trek, Mission: Impossible III and
Alias) are behind it. Witness as the impossible becomes possible and
worlds literally collide when Warner Home Video releases the hit TV
series Fringe: The Complete Second Season on Blu-ray(tm) and DVD on
September 14, 2010 for $59.98/ $69.97.
Return to explore the boundaries of a mysterious mythology that holds
millions of viewers in its hypnotic grasp. Season two of Fringe
contains worlds (and alternate worlds) of excitement complete with
shape shifters, cryonic heads, belly-dwelling beasts and people who
turn to ashes before our eyes. But the overarching narrative takes the
FBI's Fringe Division - which includes Special Agent Olivia Dunham
(Anna Torv - The Pacific), formerly institutionalized "fringe"
scientist Walter Bishop (John Noble - The Lord of the Rings: The
Return of the King) and his son, Peter (Joshua Jackson - Dawson's
Creek) - through a mind-bending investigation of a parallel reality
that threatens to destroy ours. The impossible is here in a series
that The New York Times says offers "the most satisfying, coherent
story arc of any science-fiction-flavored primetime drama."
Fringe is executive produced by J.J. Abrams, Jeff Pinkner (Alias),
J.H. Wyman (The Mexican) and Bryan Burk (Star Trek), with Alex
Kurtzman (Star Trek, Transformers), Roberto Orci (Star Trek,
