 Fringe: The Complete Third Season


  Review by Suzanne 8/31/11

I love this show, and I have watched every episode, every year. I was so happy that they renewed it for next year. It's really good science fiction. It could have easily just been a re-do of "The X-Files", but it's so much more than that. It never disappoints and always surprises. That's a great TV show. All TV shows should aspire to be as good as this one.

This season they took on a lot of really inventive stories, and it could have easily jumped the shark. Writing stories about two different worlds, with two different sets of characters, must be very difficult for them to do, yet they more than rose to the challenge.  It's not just the writing and acting that is great, but also the special effects and make-up, and all the little production details. They do an excellent job.

The DVD has four major featurettes, with lots of great information. They are so entertaining. One feature focuses exclusively on the animated episode they did with Leonard Nimoy.  The other features have the actors and production people discussing the dual characters and world in detail and all of the other things that went on this season. I really enjoyed hearing them talk about how they did the acting and other details differently for each character. Of course, it also has the usual unaired scenes.

Buy this and you won't go wrong! Any scifi fan should love it.

"Fringe continues its hot streak known as Season 3. ... It's been firing on all cylinders all season." - Andrew Hanson,

BURBANK, CA (June 28, 2011) - The mystery of the universe(s) deepens and two worlds collide with the release of Fringe: The Complete Third Season from Warner Home Video (WHV). The critically acclaimed third season of television's most thrilling sci-fi series features 22 mind-bending episodes with over three hours of brand new special features, including a Blu-rayTM exclusive featurette and free download offer for an HD digital copy of all 22 episodes. Recently renewed for a fourth season on FOX, Fringe (Fridays 9/8c) continues to be a solid hit among fans and critics. Fringe: The Complete Third Season comes to DVD and Blu-rayTM for the first time September 6, 2011 for $59.98 / $69.97 SRP.

Immersive. Compelling. Hypnotic. Brilliantly imaginative. Endlessly thrilling. Pick your term. The Fringe team escapes from the parallel universe - except for Olivia, trapped in the other world and replaced in ours by her double, who turns Peter and Olivia's tentative relationship into a love affair. Then Olivia returns, bonds of trust fray, ever more bizarre and terrifying phenomena occur, and secrets that stretch back to 1985 threaten to destroy our universe. Or theirs.

"Following the series' recent renewal for a fourth season, Warner Home Video is thrilled to release Fringe: The Complete Third Season on DVD and Blu-rayTM " said Rosemary Markson, WHV Vice President, TV and Special Interest Marketing. "This year, in addition to two and a half hours of never-before-seen special features, our Blu-rayTM release will feature exclusive content, including 45-minutes of maximum episode mode content on "Glimmer to the Other Side" and a free HD digital copy offer for all 22 episodes, not to mention premium quality 1080p video and DTS-HD 5.1 (lossless) audio."
