I'll call it.

The original Observer is Walter White.

Because that worked out so well for the X-Files.

What would it be about? Walter's adventures in the future?

R Rated Movie in which we get to see more of the lovely Anna Trov...

I'm okay with that.

Great finale, but it seems fine to leave it as is. Everything wrapped up pretty well, and I'm not sure if a movie would be worth it.

Maybe if the movie focused on something going on in the alternate universe. Most likely, we'd end up with something as pointless as the X-Files movie.

What did I just read? Some guy whining on his blog about how much he hated season 5, and then a paragraph of "I don't think they answered EVERYTHING so....movie?"
I don't think this guy's "New kind of news" is really gonna take off.

Ed Finnerty: Because that worked out so well for the X-Files.


And we're done here. The first X-Files movie wasn't terrible but it wasn't all that great either. The second one made me want to punch Chris Carter in the face.

That's just, like, that guy's opinion, man.  It's over, it ended beautifully, and I don't want to think about it or else all this dust is going to act up again.

This guy is moron. For starters, JJ Abrams hasn't had anything to do with this show since the first season, so to say that he can get a Fringe movie is ridiculous. Add to that the last time a cult show did a movie it pretty well tanked (it didn't even earn back its budget) and that that series had about 50% more viewers when it was canceled.

This also makes no sense:
"JJ Abrams and the gang claimed that if Fringe had been canceled after four seasons, they could have wrapped up the entire show in that season's final few episodes. This somewhat wasted thirteen episode season makes me think that they were sure all along that's what would happen, got caught off guard when they were granted a fifth half-season after all, and had to stretch a few episodes worth of epilogue material out to thirteen, making it slow and thin, an ongoing nightmare instead of a swift thought puzzle."

The didn't find out Fringe was renewed until after all the season four episodes were in the can. There's no way they could have changed the ending to that season after they found out they were renewed.

I don't really think that a movie is really necessary. I would love a comic book either post finale or classic Fringe.

//But I would also love a porn version where Olivia and Fauxlivia have to gain the secrets of the universe through through lesbian sex with Astro, err Ostrich, I mean Asteroid, is it any chance Asprin?

That wouldn't be lesbian sex.

Yeah it was wrapped up nicely. Why risk ruining that?

Although it would be cool for Peter and Olivia to leave messages for Walter to find in a hundred years

I hope that's not snark. I've watched since the beginning (thought it was getting lame year 1) but what a great way to end it all.

Those two episodes were so chock full of plot holes and nonsensical behavior from the characters it was downright distracting. I loved this show, and watched every week, but it went off the rails after Season 3, and never fully recovered. The first few episodes of this season were pretty good, but there was a lack of creativity (every week another videotape with just the right vital pieces scrambled), a lack of cohesive storytelling (compare to the solid story arc of Season 3) and plot dead ends (Observer-ized Peter).

Better than Season 4, to be sure. But the creative wind went out of this show's sails two years ago.

Nope, no snark whatsoever.

100 Watt Walrus: (Observer-ized Peter).


No matter what horrible event has happened to you, it's not worth losing your humanity and turning into your enemy to defeat them.  Compare to whatever real life events you choose, but I figure it was obvious from how Peter was hurting people to get answers out of them what story they were telling, and I thought a very necessary one considering the loss they just suffered and examining what an appropriate response was.

I just meant the abrupt abandonment. The way they built up that arc, like it was going to be pivotal to the resolution of the story, then "Please remove the tech. I love you." "Okey doke."

Fringe jumped the shark after that whole move to the future thing, after that it was almost as bad as Eureka with their alternate timelines and realities. Why couldn't they just finish the story and tie it up, instead of just randomly change it entirely and leave a ton of things unanswered.

I think I will just remember Fringe as good three season show that unfortunately was cancelled before they could tie the storylines together.

It is terrible that Walter, the child abductor, wasn't killed off or brought to justice.
Instead he walks off into the future with yet another child.

sick.

Why would they need to? Walter is in the future. Surely it is conceivable that Walter can figure out how to time travel to 2015. After all, September was from the future and he brought back stuff that they needed to create the wormhole. Unless I am missing something, I don't see why Walter can't do the same thing in the future. In fact, it would be easier for him.
 
2013-01-20 12:57:24 PM
IMHO I don't believe Walter has much of a future. Donald took the innoculation, whatever it was supposed to protect from wasn't clear. I think without it, his life will be pretty short in the future.

woojest: IMHO I don't believe Walter has much of a future. Donald took the innoculation, whatever it was supposed to protect from wasn't clear. I think without it, his life will be pretty short in the future.


He did inoculate himself back before he was ambered. He had always intended to be the one to take the boy to the future. That's why he sent Peter the letter and left him the videotape. The injection they found was an extra one, in case Walter wasn't able to go through with it and somebody else needed to be prepped to go.

Correct me if I'm wrong but the only major plot device not entirely wrapped up is that of The First People.

thamike: Correct me if I'm wrong but the only major plot device not entirely wrapped up is that of The First People.



Walter and Peter (and I suppose Olivia) were the First People, they designed the machine that sent Peter into the future in the Season 3 finale and sent it back in time to be hidden and used.

Unrelated but I watched the last 3 episodes back-to-back the next day and the Walter-Peter scenes were tough to watch. And by that I mean, there was a lot of dust in the room. Fracking lot of dust. Godsdammit, someone open a window in here.

Yeah, but was that ever definitively established, or was that just our logical conclusion?  Point being, it's the only question that hasn't been answered in a televised portrayal of events.

Though, honestly, I would be happy with a spin-off side-quel devoted entirely to David Robert Jones.

Walter stated it onscreen. He said something to the effect of "I know who built the machine. I built it and sent it back in time."

Why not? Her alternate self came to her universe and had sex with Peter, after all.

//I liked that they used the Fringe bio-weapons to stage their attacks against the Observers. Very cool.

Maybe I should have said "actually depicted on television" so as to avoid confusion.
