TFP Episode 446-Feedback For “Worlds Apart”

TFP Episode 446-Feedback For “Worlds Apart”

In this episode of The Fringe Podcast, we get blown away by the amazing listener feedback we received for the Fringe season 4 episode, “Worlds Apart.” Ryan called in one of the best contributions in the history of The Fringe Podcast, Interdimentional Dave gets philosophical, Xerophytes doesn’t get invalidated, Pat rubs salt in Darrell’s wounds and MUCH more!

  1. I think that Walter’s dream may actually be a memory of an idea that he and William Bell had but he can’t completely remember it because pieces of his brain are missing.

    I don’t think DRJ is soul magnet Bell, I suspect that Bell initially lied about his alternate self dying and he may have been working with his alternate before and the alternate is still alive. I think evil alternate Nina points to the possibility of an evil alternate Bell.

    I also like the Star Wars reference in terms of DRJ being the apprentice and not the master. It is also incredibly masterful that the ZFT document points to the situation with the observers more than the other side this whole time.

    If Olivia has to die i hope she comes back as a shapeshifter…

  2. As far as the earthquake time of 11:23, it appears to have been signalling the beginning of the Fibonacci series of (0),1,1,2,3.

    • Nice catch Darell! (nice name too) :-)

  3. Hi, guys,

    I love the show. Thanks so much for all of your hard work!

    I have about 30 minutes left to listen to on your latest feedback show, so please excuse me if this is a repeat of something you’ve already heard.

    One thing about “Worlds Apart” didn’t quite gel with me. If Jones needs the bridge to facilitate connection between the Cortexiphan subjects and their doppelgangers, and this is what gives the subjects enough power to create earthquakes, why did Jones send alt-Broyles to sabotage the machine just a couple of episodes before? Maybe what he really wanted was for them to shut down the machine. When alt-Broyles turned himself in, the only other way to shut the machine down was to convince Walter and Walternate to do it themselves. Jones staged the earthquakes just to get them to shut down the machine.

    Why? Here’s my theory:

    In “Letters of Transit,” when Simon, Etta, and Walter were looking at the hologram of what looked like the machine, Simon mentioned something about it looking like a beacon. If the Observers need beacons to find their way through time, and a small, briefcase-sized beacon is sufficient to help September and other members of the science team to find their way around, the Observers would need a really huge beacon to help an entire Observer civilization make a mass exodus into the past. The machine’s ability to bridge the red- and blue-verses may just be an additional perk. Perhaps it also attracted time-displaced Peter and helped him find his way back.

    Here’s an additional fun fact. David Bowie’s real name is David Robert Jones. This can’t be a coincidence, because Thomas Jerome Newton, the name of the main villain in Fringe season 2, is also the name of the character that David Bowie played in the movie “The Man Who Fell To Earth.”

    Thanks again for the show!

  4. The ” Meth Lab in the Pants ” was hilarious as was the absurdity of a highly trained agent laid low with a Bic in the belly .

  5. Feedback for “Brave New World (part 1)

    :) Clint and Darrell,

    As we approach the finale of the finale this timeline feels like *the timeline* where we should be. First of all, I was jumping for joy when Olivia was talking about the nursery, and melted seeing Peter’s smile. Astrid supporting Walter as a friend, and not like a guardian, and being kickass made the whole episode for me. And yes, I found it more interesting than Leonard Nimoy coming back. Second of all, I think we had some of the most outstanding monster of the week/case of the week/19th episode of the season episodes. I look forward to rewatching them all. Those are… little (baby) nuggets of joy spread across the timeline. One of a very mature sci-fi show which just keeps amazing me :)

    Ps. I never had problems with spelling your names. Didn’t even have to look it up. Thanks for noticing that in my last feedback.
