      Email Post       9/30/2012 08:51:00 PM      

In episode 502 of The Fringe Podcast we break down the Fringe season 5 premiere entitled, "Transilience Thought Unifier Model-11." We talk about the new feel of the episode and how this season will likely be different from previous seasons. We share our thoughts on the cast of characters for season 5 and how they are still very similar to the characters we've seen in previous seasons. Darrell offers up two new theories on the Observers and William Bell. Clint shares some real world science that relates to what we saw in this episode. And, of course, we discuss some of the powerful scenes from this episode and the amazing work the cast and crew did.

Fringe Review: Transilience Thought Unifier Model-11

      Email Post       9/30/2012 04:48:00 PM      

“Resistance is futile.”

While we’re all sad that Fringe has only 13 episodes left, there’s something to be said for the showrunners knowing when a story is going to end, in time to craft a beautiful ending. In the past, one of Fringe’s strengths is that it forces us to ask questions. But its greatest strength has been that it reminds us that questions can change, as in last season’s switch from “will they or won’t they” to “who are they, and is identity a stable category?”

Fringe Episode 5.01 Review - Dandelion Wine

Transilience Thought Unifier Model -11


Dandelion Wine

(The Simple Joys of Yesterday)

“Somewhere, a book said once, all the talk ever talked, all the songs ever sung, still lived, had vibrated way out in space and if you could travel to Far Centauri you could hear George Washington talking in his sleep or Caesar surprised at the knife in his back. So much for sounds. What about light then? All things, once seen, they didn't just die, that couldn't be.

It must be then that somewhere, searching the world, perhaps in the dropping multiboxed honeycombs where light was an amber sap stored by pollen-fired bees, or in the thirty thousand lenses of the noon dragonfly's gemmed skull you might find all the colors and sights of the world in any one year. Or pour one single drop of this dandelion wine beneath a microscope and perhaps the entire world of July Fourth would firework out in Vesuvius showers. This he would have to believe.”

Ray Bradbury

I am elated to be able to write some thoughts about this episode. This show has 12 more to tell an epic saga, and so far, so very good.

A Beautiful Dream Inside of a Horrible Nightmare

As the Fringe family of Olivia, Peter and their young daughter, Etta, enjoyed what Peter might call, “the perfect day,” I could not help but to smile. These precious moments of a happy family are few and far between on the show. However, there was also a conflicting dread, as I witnessed father and mother enjoying their precious toddler’s joy in her discovery of the effect that blowing air against a mature dandelion has on the flower.  Fringe fans everywhere probably felt the same, as we know when Peter and Olivia are happy, something's gotta go wrong. And the wrong that came has got to be the most gut-wrenching imaginable.

Happy Fringe Season Five Premiere Friday!

The fifth and final season picks up from the ominous events of last season’s “Letters of Transit” episode, in which the year is 2036 and the overpowering Observers rule. The Fringe team – preserved in amber for 20 years - is now a rebel resistance team fighting for freedom. Peter, reunited with his now adult daughter, Etta, sets out to find out what happened to his wife and Etta’s mom – Olivia – as they start their mission to save the world from the Observers.
During tonight's season premiere episode, help promote Fringe by tweeting about the episode using this week's hashmark #TheyAreHere (Wait until 8pm, and don't use any other #hashtags! - plus please add the word Fringe (without a #) into your tweet.)

Social Media Campaign for 5x01 "Transilience Thought Unifier Model-11"

      Email Post       9/28/2012 04:40:00 PM      

The team over at Fringenuity are preparing to launch back into the weekly social media campaigns that helped give the fandom a voice during the last season. The focus is a little different now that we no longer need to worry about the future of the show, but Fringe's fandom has become a sort of story in itself, and we intend to be there every step of the way down this last stretch of road. Fringe, and its fans, deserve nothing less.

FOX Broadcasting will continue its support of the community's efforts by displaying the fan chosen hashtag in place of the old #Fringe tag during each episode. For the September 28 premiere, the hashtag was really a no brainer (see what I did there?); the logical answer to September's ominous warning. After a summer full of warnings that "They are coming," the hashtag for the season five opener is



Be sure to make your first tweet of the night a thank you to @FoxBroadcasting and @WarnerBrosEnt for making season five possible.

1) Don’t use #TheyAreHere before the designated time: 1 HOUR before Fringe airs.
The event will take place 1 hour before Fringe airs – 8pm EST. As these events become larger, we are gaining more new Fringies in the effort. Gently remind others that use the tag before the event to wait until the right time, and tell them that using the tag too much beforehand will lessen trending impact. This happened when Fringe fans tried to trend #WhereIsPeterBishop for the season four premiere. The # had been used all summer long, was not anything new on the Twitter radar, so it did not trend. Trending happens with terms that are relatively new, and many people tweet about them at the same time. Terms break out onto the scene, but trending becomes more difficult the more they are used. Be nice! We want everyone to feel welcome.

2) One # term per Tweet. Use only #TheyAreHere (What Are Hashtags?)

3) Lots of people tweeting matters more than the number of tweets.
Tell every Fringie about the event. There is strength in numbers – remember that the more unique tweeters we have, the more likely we are to trend, and for a longer duration of time. Send your tweets out fast – but remember to pace yourself. You want to avoid “Twitter Jail.” We know we can hit worldwide trending now, so sustained tweeting matters. Trending can be a distraction, but we need you to keep those wonderful tweets coming. You may have also noticed that the # will drop off the charts after a while, only to trend again when Fringe airs. This is due to other viewers joining in by tweeting the hashtag on the bottom of the screen.

4) Those with lots of followers help out a lot!
Alternate accounts with few followers do not have as much “influence” towards trending. But tweets from accounts like @JWFringe, @FringeOnFox, @VancityJax and @johnnob58004412 make a big impact. Let’s try to build our Fringe fan follower networks. One easy way is to follow people on fan Twitter lists. Here is Aimee's Cortexifan list. Follow some Fringies! Another way is to follow some folks on Twitter “Follow Fridays.” You may have seen tweets that are tagged #FF – followed by a bunch of twitter names. This is because they are recommended people to follow.

5) We want to pique the interest of non-Fringe fans.
This is the key to our trending duration success. It gives a chance to get our message about Fringe out to another audience. Try to construct a list of thoughtful and informative tweets before the event. These can be copied and pasted for easy tweets. Use some witty Fringe sayings – link some of the official promo videos – speculate about the plans of William Bell, or on the fate of Olivia. Cool tweets are more likely to earn re-tweets, and this immensely helps trending.

6) We can discuss aspects of the show in our tweets.
TRY to include the word FRINGE (with no #) in your tweet if possible. Talk about the characters and the actors.  Maybe use the episode title. We’ve recently been able to trend Fringe, Broyles, John Noble, and William Bell! Something tells me that Etta and Observers will trend as well…

7) Private accounts must have their locked status removed, as the tweets from locked accounts do not count toward the trend tally.

8) Retweets are the easiest way to help out the trending effort.
Just search for the hashtag, and retweet the ones that are interesting to you. If you know how to use a Twitter application suite like TweetDeck or HootSuite, this is made even easier.

9) Remember to check in at GetGlue for cool stickers and so that Fringe will trend there as well.
With this difference in purpose, we are setting our expectations for lower participation in these events than before the renewal announcement. Without the execution fear hanging over us, there won’t be such a flurry of anxious determination. On the other hand, we’d like to be proven wrong and see more people participate than ever and Twitter trending all over the world once again. Many people have watched Fringe over the summer due to streaming access and news of a definite end date. Fans have been gained. Let’s try for the next few weeks to engage people online whether on Twitter, FB, Tumblr, GetGlue, etc, and talk with them and remind the about Fringe’s return.

Merchandise Monday - Fringe Glyphs

      Email Post       9/17/2012 01:54:00 PM      

So for this edition of Merchandise Monday I'm looking at the Fringe Glyphs.

Since they first appeared there was a fascination with them and work soon began on decoding their meaning.

Of course once they had been decoded they become even more of an enigma as they seemingly give clues to either the overall Fringe story or simply a hint at the next episode.

The beauty is of course that you don't need to understand the code to watch, they are just part of the show and I couldn't imagine an episode without them.

I have always wanted to create my own simple versions of the glyphs as the on screen versions are beautiful, but don't translate well to my preferred limited color way of working.

Book Review of Kindle Discounted Fringe Science

      Email Post       9/13/2012 04:13:00 PM      

Smart Pop Books has just released "Fringe Science: Parallel Universes, White Tulips, And Mad Scientists" on the Kindle for a very user friendly price of 99 cents!

You can buy it - HERE

Awhile back I reviewed the book and found it a very enjoyable and thought provoking read.

And now at less than a dollar this is a no brainer!

Note - It will be available at the discounted price only until September 23.

Taken from the Smart Pop website 'About' page:

'Smart Pop Books - On the best in Pop Culture Television, Books, And Film'

'Smart Pop books is a line of smart, fresh funny essays on the best of pop culture tv, books, and film, with particular focus on science fiction and fantasy television and literature.'

From the back cover of Smart Pop's Fringe Science book:

'Fringe has always been more than the sum of its parts-but its parts, too, are worth a closer look. The show combines a surfeit of mad science, some old school sci-fi flair, and a dash of strawberry-milkshake whimsy to create the challenging, fascinating Pattern that keeps us coming back season after season and universe after universe.'

Matt Mittovitch over at TVLine has posted a report noting how involved Joel Wyman is with the upcoming final season of Fringe.

The airing schedule of Season 5 still seems to be in flux. According to the report an uninterrupted run is not in the cards:

The fifth and final season, premiering Sept. 28, will have “two little breaks,” Wyman suggested to TVLine during our fall preview interview.
 Even the previously reported Feb 1 Finale date seems up in the air.
“Four [episodes], and then two… and the rest is a[n uninterrupted] run-on” — landing the finale in mid-January, at least

In this episode of The Fringe Podcast, we are joined by Allan, Michelle, and Lou as we rewatch and discuss the Fringe season 4 episodes, "Making Angels," "Welcome To Westfield," "A Better Human Being," "The End of All Things," "A Short Story About Love," and "Nothing As It Seems." We dig in to many of the themes and character developments covered in this group of episodes. We talk about the journey that Olivia and Peter go through and whether or not the writers took too long to resolve it, we talk about the new revelations we received about the origins of the observers and how that information gives us insight into season 5, and we talk about the series of Fringe as a love story. Some of us like the idea of Fringe as a love story, and some of us hope that there is more to it than that.

Speaking of that tale, specially marked copies of the Season 4 set are available at Best Buy that come with a mini-comic of the Jackson story. A yellow sticker on the front of the DVD or Blu-Ray will alert you to it being included inside.

In this episode of The Fringe Podcast we continue our summer rewatch series with the Fringe season 4 episodes, "And Those We've Left Behind," "Wallflower," "Back to Where You've Never Been," Enemy of My Enemy," and "Forced Perspective." Joined by Michelle and John, we discuss the Observers and how this new timeline might effect their overall plan, the differenct character growth and nuances of Peter, Walternate, Walter, Elizabeth and Nina, and we talk about some of the clues that we originally missed that reaveal Peter is where is should have been all along.

We also read a very insightful email we received from Joey that discusses the Observers plan, how their plan effects each universe, and how September has been working to avoid the Observer invasion from season 1.
