How come nobody watches this show (or doesn't talk about it)? It really is good.

It is supposed to non-fiction but it isn't realistic, however I like it better than Heroes and Prison Break right now. Wouldn't except less from the makers of Lost ;).

Also, it always has a couple hilarious quotes from Dr. Walter :P

Much to my dismay I haven't kept track of it lately. I had to work a couple of Tuesdays so I couldn't catch the episodes and I was too lazy to look it up online.

You should catch up, they're good.

At the beginning of the series I wasn't very interested and found it kind of boring. However, it is a good thing I kept at it because it is good and getting better.

Production and filming for FRINGE moved from New York to Vancouver for season 2, so expect to see a lot of Vancouver!

Yeah, I'm real excited about that. Just another way it's similar to the X-Files. Hoping for an excellent season premiere.

just saw it....the season opener was slow. The UBC Chemistry building was Walter's [downsized] Harvard lab and UBC's Irving Barber Centre was the FBI headquarters.

The show feels weird now that it's filmed in Vancouver.

^ look for it online...sidereel.com



As much as I love our local film industry, the Vancouver sets were far too familiar and it killed my imagination.

lol I like the subtle nod to Vancouver by having the X-Files playing on the TV in the opening scene. Also, I noticed they used the same dark, steam-pipe filled corridor that appeared many times during X-Files and SG-1 as well. Not a bad episode, and I think it's cool to recognize a lot of the scenery... As a local, I know we aren't downtown Manhattan though

If I'm not mistaken, the first 2 episodes for this season were filmed way before they decided to move to Vancouver.

I don't know...but now that they have that new female agent he's not really needed anymore. I wonder if that Francis plot will end next episode of if they'll continue it on for a few episodes.

^^ They also referenced x-files when "X" division was mentioned when Broyles was talking to the Senators that were shutting down Fringe division.

Yeah, they had to get a new agent to replace him, but I hope she doesn't kind of take the limelight away from Olivia. But I guess they couldn't get just another male to fill the same role or it'd be rather redundant because you know they'll get the shape-shifter soon.

The X files thing (both references) are fun for 2 reasons. Of course the Vancouver connection and that this show is very much like it in concept

Fox originally planned to broadcast 22 episodes. But after they finished filming, Fox decided to hold off the last 2 episodes till the second season. That's why they could release a trailer for season 2 right after the finale and before they started filming in Vancouver.

Anyone watch it? It's from one of the creators of "Lost". The plots revolve around fringe science like, I'm assuming, telepathy, robotics, etc...it was a bit of a lacklustre pilot in my opinion but I'm still going to watch it. I wonder if there's any chance it may eventually tie into "Lost".


Edit: Nevermind didn't realize the first post was from last year haha.

Anyway I like the show and shall continue to watch

I am quite sure that at least some of that was Vancouver. Just based on the fruit juice on the shelf in the store.

What was it?

Ocean Spray or something?

I usually find the biggest giveaway of Vancouver in a movie is the BC Tranist busses. Although not in this show, yet...
