[BLOG] PCR’s further thoughts on ‘Fringe’

Hey Somethings, PCR here!

This past Tuesday, we dropped an episode of “In the Beginning” talking about the pilot episode of Fringe (here if you haven’t listened yet…), and, one of the things we ask ourselves is.. does the pilot do enough to make you want to watch more?

Well, I’m 2 episodes into Season 3 so far and, I’m glad I continued.

While it felt a bit odd that they dropped some story angles (The Pattern) and some characters seem to had some minor look and personality tweaks from S1 to S2 (Peter…), I’m enjoying the journey this show is taking.

One constant I can speak on, who.. for my money.. has become THE glue to this show and absolutely chews up EVERY scene they’re in, is John Noble as Walter Bishop (and Walternate in some seasons).  The depth of emotion he can portray is absolutely astounding… and the fact he gets to show another facet when he plays Walternate speaks even more volumes to his skill.  Again, I’ve just started S3 and he is legitimately the best actor on this entire show, and it’s not even close.  That’s not to say the other actors are slouches, but Noble is such a jump above the others it’s palpable.

I’m looking forward to seeing where the show goes from here, but I’m glad we got this fan suggestion to do Fringe on “In The Beginning” because otherwise I likely never would have started it.
