Product Description

Fringe: The Complete Fifth Season (DVD)

Amazon.com

One of television's most intriguing and provocative science fiction shows comes to an end as Fringe bows out with this set of 13 episodes (on four discs, plus bonus material) from its fifth season. It's been quite a run, as the members of the multi-agency task force at the center of the action (principally Anna Torv as FBI Agent Olivia Dunham, John Noble as the brilliant but erratic Dr. Walter Bishop, and Joshua Jackson as Walter's son Peter) have gone from investigating bizarre phenomena (slugs as big as footballs, teethed parasites that can crush your heart) to figuring out the nuances of a parallel universe and, in this series end game, trying to save the world from their most implacable foe yet. That would be the Observers, a highly advanced species of humans who have invaded Earth (the storyline, which takes place in the year 2036, was introduced in the season four episode "Letters of Transit"). Pasty, shaven-headed (humans call them "Baldies"), and sporting identical dark suits and fedoras, the Observers have sacrificed emotion for intellect, are able to read our minds, and are pumping carbon dioxide into the atmosphere to make it more breathable for themselves. It's a totalitarian nightmare, but our heroes have a solution, of course. Having preserved themselves in amber since the Observers showed up in 2015, they are now free and, joined by Olivia and Peter's now twentysomething daughter (Georgina Haig) and helped along by a couple of renegade Observers, they spend most of the season on a kind of doomsday scavenger hunt for the various elements of a device that will defeat the invaders.

With so much at stake, the overall tone of the show changes somewhat in this final season, with an action-adventure element marked by numerous chase scenes, gunfights, and last-second escapes from the bad guys. At the same time, this is a much more emotional Fringe; as is often the case in such tales, it's human elements like trust, sympathy, and love that distinguish us from other species, and while the finale is filled with complex pseudo-science, it's also very moving, especially when it comes to the relationship between Walter and Peter. Bonus material includes interviews with series creator J.J. Abrams and other members of the cast and crew, episode commentary, deleted scenes, and more. --Sam Graham

"Fringe" enthralled me from the first. Its alternate universe structure, its forays into the future, its "pattern" of impossible-yet-real cases - all these could have easily become unwieldy, opaque, or - even more dangerous for a TV show - complete gibberish to the viewer. And yet, these negative outcomes never happened. We always knew where we were. A large part of the credit goes to the close attention paid in the very structure of the show to the inner reality of the characters: thus, the very color of the background to the show's logo lets us know immediately if we are in the original prime universe or the original alternate universe. (And yes, please note the use of the word "original" here; I will not divulge the number of universes, nor the colors associated with them, lest any new viewers who are reading this review lose some of the thrill of discovering the complexity of "Fringe" for themselves.) Also, credit for helping us locate ourselves within the "Fringe" universe must go to the superb cast. All of the main characters - yes, even the one who at first seems to be the only 'singular' person in the several universes - play subtly different versions of themselves so well, we know immediately who they are and which universe they belong to..

Unfortunately, the best of these universe-twisting role-playings occur prior to this final season. But for those of you who are only now dipping int the wonders of "Fringe", as an added fillip, in an earlier season (no cheating, I'm not gonna tell you when), please keep your eyes open for the time when a very major character suddenly starts to channel Leonard Nimoy's guest star persona so well that at one point you can actually see Nimoy-as-Spock reacting to an incident.

Which means you already know what I think of this simply amazing, too good for TV scripted show that NOBODY is watching, hence I get, I think 11 more episodes until my heart is once again broken as I salute the end of another absolutely outstanding television show. I am with both reviewers of TV Guide and USAToday who have tirelessly and shamelessly promoted this show (who both often will try to push a Friday night show opposite it, ie: "you can watch so and so for some slightly decent entertainment, or you can crawl out of your it's the end of the week and I'm tired and don't want my brain to work too hard malaise and watch Fringe for truly intelligent, well-acted, excellent entertainment" (sic). I do have to say that putting Grimm up against Fringe is simply Hollywood being rude again as if there is a real choice. I mean, Fringe has been on a lot longer, but has continued to get better and better for the three of us watching it. Grimm is pretty much on a par with Fringe, in creativity and intelligence and lovely quirky characters (seriously, Walter or Monroe? As if we have a choice!), but I think I'm just being bitter again.

Admittedly, Fringe had a bit of a stuttering beginning, but I don't believe I've ever seen a sci fi show that didn't (I'll reference Eureka here, which in my opinion had about the worst first year of any sci fi show I've seen - fast forward to its final show that I used up a box of Kleenex as my heart broke watching what became, to me, as close to the perfection of Firefly we have gotten on the entertainment medium called scripted television).

(Review of 5.02)
When we last left the Resistance, they were experiencing the first burgeonings of hope - here we learn just how hard those hopes will be dashed, and how mightily they can rise again.
Fringe hits its stride again, calling up questions of hope and hopelessness, and whether the bonds of family can transcend the good and the desperate. While the pacing seems to trip up in places, "In Absentia" provides several emotional thrills with a tiny dose of heartbreak - but that's Fringe for you. Dialogue does the heavy lifting plotwise, but the heart of this show has always been in the quiet moments, the subtle looks, and the powerful cast chemistry, and this episode is no exception.
With only a few episodes to go, Fringe promises excitement around every turn, and I am thrilled to be along for the ride.

(Review of episode 5.01)
With only a half season to wrap things up, the pressure is on for Fringe as it tells its final story. Gone are the filler episodes of yore (here's to you, Molebaby) as mythology takes charge.
Etta (Georgina Haig) fits right in with everyone's favorite team of misfit heroes. The burgeoning family dynamic is nice to see and will certainly be interesting to watch grow.
The episode itself was well-paced and engaging, keeping me right along as it moved from plot point to plot point. Some of our regulars were conspicuously missing, but they were in the promo photos so I'm sure they'll reappear. Complimenting the acting at this point is just silly, as once Anna Torv shed all accusations of "woodeness" in season one, there have been nothing but thoroughly-deserved accolades for the entire cast.
All said, a very worthy beginning of the end. I look forward to so much more.
