The Fringe Podcast Summer Rewatch Episode 01

The Fringe Podcast Summer Rewatch Episode 01

In this episode of The Fringe Podcast, we kick off our summer rewatch. We’re joined by community members Don, Jean and Michelle, and we discuss the season 1 episodes, “Pilot”, “The Same Old Story”, “The Ghost Network” and “The Arrival.” We discuss out thoughts about the dynamic between the characters, the quality of the pilot, the Observers and William Bell. We also talk about how the events we saw in these first 4 episodes tie in and give foreshadowing to events we now know about after having seen the first 4 seasons of Fringe.

  1. Nice job everyone ! That was fun and interesting . It’s good reviewing these episodes
    with the perspective we have now and connecting things in the context of the story arc thus far , can’t wait for the next segment .

  2. Great review. I had also thought Peter came off as kind of a jerk in the early episodes. And did we ever find about the people who were following him? I remember another confrontation in a later episode, but not sure how that situation was resolved.
    Concerning the beacon – I do not think it was overhyped; at least not by the characters. The people who knew about it were military. As such they would see it as a potentially hostile threat. I do not think the characters overreacted to something they did not understand. However, the writers led us believe it had a greater significance than being merely a beacon.

    • I don’t think they ever resolved the Big Eddy story line. I guess they decided to move in a different direction with that. Frankly, I’m kind of glad they did. It’s very unlikely that would have tied in to the Fringe mythos, and it would have just been a waste. I like your thoughts about the beacon and the perspective the military would have had on it. That makes sense for sure. Maybe we’ll still get more story on it that will give us a fuller understanding of it.

  3. Watching since day one, this year my 12 year old got into season 4 with me so we r watching the rewatch together. he was surprised at what a jerk Peter was and is dying to know what happened to agent Charlie. Loving the suspense. Rewatch podcast was terrific. Keep it up.
