    I’m quite shocked that no one has created this topic with only 2 days left to last season of that fantastic show begin.

    The Last Season premieres on FRI 9/8c SEP 28.

    Please be the one sci-fi/fantasy drama that doesn’t end disappointingly.

    I spent most of this episode trying to figure out whether I was enjoying the episode. By the end I came to the conclusion that I have no idea where this season is heading quality-wise. I did think it was a more epic and involving premiere than what we got last year

    Noble and Torv remain mpressive and will remain snubbed.

    It was a good premiere, it was engaging enough to keep me hooked, that torture scene with Walter was so well-made it gave me chills, Noble as always was fantastic here, I also enjoyed a lot Joshua Jackson, he managed to show strong feelings when he was crying with Olivia but a negative point I thought it should’ve stopped there, that scene with Etta trying to find Walter using the traffic cameras with Olivia and Peter on the background still whining was kind of ridiculous, but that’s nothing compared to the rest of the episode. The end was beautiful, Wyman is such a talented and creative writer, that flower represents that there’s still hope.

    I finally watched it.  I am already a bit disppointed.  Not with the episode itself, which was pretty good.  But, I am disappointed with the entire direction of the final season.  The Alt Universe was a much more compelling story than this Observer dystopia they are now featured.  This is likely the least creative explanation for the Observers they could have come up with.  And I truly fail to see why they are even here.  I mean, what’s the point?  They ruined earth already, so they are coming back to do it again?  Huh?  It all just seems so cartoon villain at this point.

    The stories about the Alt Universe were much more interesting.  That was a story about the arrogance of Bell and Walter.  And Walter making a mistake which led to the deterioration of two universes.  I loved the large scale of that problem and how it directly affected the characters.  And the Alt Universe was depicted in a wonderfully creative, surprising way.  It feels like the show just wrapped that 3 season long story up with “Meh, just push this button and it will all be okay! Goodbye!”

    And now we are left with a much more cliched story.  Evil invaders occupying us and ruining the world!  Our characters had nothing to do with this, so the emotional stakes seem much lower.  Now it is just good guys vs. bad guys.  It all feels so rote.

    At this point I am just hoping to like it more than the final seasons of Lost and Battlestar Galactica.

    I enjoyed the episode.

    And I don’t blame the writers for shifting to this conclusion and final arc for our final 13 episodes. As compelling as the alt. universes were, that could go on forever without much resolve.  This will be a focused final chapter (although I do hope we get AT LEAST one more glimpse of the alternates at some point, though last season’s goodbye seemed pretty finite. ).

    I’m so glad Fox is giving Fringe fans this conclusion, because in reality, this show shouldn’t really be on the air anymore (ratings-wise) and we are fortunate to get this, so I’ll take it!

    ps – Noble was fantastic in the premiere.

    I thought this episode was all right, there wasn’t much action but the story moved on enough, I hope we get to see some of those experiments in action on this season, it looked pretty good.

    The actress playing ETTA is all kinds of beautiful, but damn it she’s not a good actress as Torv is, not even close, that bad girl’s face of hers at the end with the hostage guy was laughble.

    I wonder if any of the creators (Abrams please) would direct the final episode or one of this season’s episode, I googled it up and I found nothing, anyone knows something about that?

    That
    wasn’t a very important episode, it was the filler kind of episode but I
    still enjoyed it, I was hoping we would get to see more of the history of those
    people but I’m sure that wasn’t time for it with only 10 episodes left
    now.

    The Countdown Begins.

    I just caught up and I gotta say that I am loving this season.  I am enjoying more than last season up to this point.  Anna Torv and John Noble to give two of the most crminally underrated performances on the planet.  And Joshua Jackson has even brought it a little this season.

    Ye I’m enjoying it too, I said on some post above that Joshua Jackson is better on this season but it’s a shame that almost no one on this forum are watching it.

    I am enjoying the season well enough, but the “humankind slaves to machines/aliens/monkeys/observers” is just too been there, seen done that of a conceit for me to really be enthused. And I miss the alternate universe.
