Fringe – Season 2 – Err.. Back To Being Idiotic

Someone had commented that this series was a well thought out series. I am guessing he would have a different episode guide than the one I have. Other than Walter, not a single character is interesting or entertaining.

Season 2, Episode 11:

Charlie Francis makes an appearance. This character was killed off and here he is – back with the Fringe team. Only explanation seems to be – this was supposed to be an unaired episode or perhaps this episode would have been a part of Season 1 and got somehow placed into Season 2.

I would Google it up to be sure, but even if I am doing absolutely nothing and sitting idle, it would be better use of my time – as opposed to Googling about this series.

Season 2, Episode 17:

I have no clue why Olivia is insisting that Walter must tell Peter that he (Peter) is from the 'other universe'.


OLIVIA: Walter, I have to tell him. I've got to tell Peter the truth.

WALTER: (quietly, but firmly) But that's not what we discussed.

OLIVIA: I know, and I'm sorry. But he deserves to know the truth about who he is.

WALTER: No. No, you don't understand. Things have never been better between us. I can't lose him again. I can't.

OLIVIA: You won't. Once he knows the whole story. Walter, you saved his life. I'm sure that he will understand.

WALTER: No, he won't. He will never forgive me.

OLIVIA: I -- I have to tell him. If it was the other way around, I would want him to tell me.

WALTER: I'm begging you. Not yet. Please. Give me time to prepare. Please.

What makes her think that disclosing this fact would make things better? Seriously, this Olivia character is ticking me off even more with every episode.

Later in the episode Olivia visits Nina Sharp. Nina insists that Olivia is there so that Nina would talk her out of telling Peter the truth. I don't even know how to react to that level of stupidity.

Towards the end, the episode reached its most idiotic level. Nina and Broyles are chit chatting. Here is how that goes:


NINA: Hmm. So I don't imagine you called me all the way down here just to share in your victory.

BROYLES: Aside from Olivia Dunham, there are still nearly a dozen unaccounted for people from the Jacksonville experiments, and thirty more from the drug trials in Wooster. If they all have capabilities anything like the ones we've seen, and if someone were to find them...

NINA: Well, Phillip, (thoughtfully) then we need to find them first.

Err, isn't that what these morons have been trying to do from the beginning? Coming all the way down there just to share in Broyles victory seemed like a waste of time to Nina, but Broyles telling Nina that there might be others with similar capabilities isn't ??!

Didn't Nina already know that there are others with similar capabilities / abilities?

This show is a waste of disc space and I am not going to bother with the following seasons. Only reason I will be completing Season 2 is because I already have it downloaded.

No eye candy, pointless statements, annoying/idiotic lead character. The only thing good about the show is Walter, but I can watch or read Walter's quotes on YouTube or Fringepedia. There is absolutely no need for me to subject myself to this nonsense any further.
