Fringe Fifth Season

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 5/5/13

I watched every episode of this show as it aired, so watching and reviewing the DVD was easy. I loved it and I am very sad still that it's not continuing past these 5 years. What a fantastic scifi show. I really miss it. None of the remaining scifi shows come close to it in quality or entertainment.  The writers never treated us like idiots, and they were always challenging their audience instead. What a concept!

I wasn't thrilled that the last season took place in a dark future, but it was still a very good show, and it had a fabulous ending. It ended pretty much the way I would have wanted it to end. If you like the show and have watched the other DVD's, then you will enjoy the ending, too. They could not have done it any better.

Now I have all the DVD's, so I'm very happy. There are many great extras on the DVD set, such as "A Farewell to Fringe", which as the series creator J.J. Abrams reflecting on the series as well as the executive producer J.H. Wyman and the cast. It is quite long and entertaining. They also have a Comic-Con panel from 2012, which I enjoyed. I used to go to Comic-con in the 70's and 80's, but I don't live in San Diego any more, so it's great to see videos from it.

There is also a digital script of the final episode (not sure what the point of that is), and of course the usual episode commentary if you're into that kind of thing, as well as a gag reel and some unaired scenes. Not too many, though.  Any scifi fan should love this set!
