5.0 out of 5 stars BEST SHOW EVER!!!!!!!!!!, September 13, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Fringe: Season 3 (DVD)
Wow. I have been watching Fringe since season 1 and have boughten all of them and will do so for season 4 as well. ( and hopefully the show will continue on to a 5th and 6th season!) Fringe is THE MOST creative, fascinating, and well made show EVER. I honestly would like anyone who HAS SEEN the show (it can't just be somebody who has watched one episode and thinks they can judge the show) and thinks there is a better sci-fi episodic tv show to let me know because I will watch it and give it a good fair chance if this person still thinks it is better than Fringe. I doubt any show is better though. Fringe is the perfect blend of real science and technology with riveting fiction that captures the viewers attention and leaves them hooked, wanting to watch the next episode, and then the next. J. J. Abrams, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, the creators of Fringe, put more work and detail into this show than any other show I've seen. First of all, they have the observer walking in the background of various scenes, sometimes even so small or for so quick an instant that you have to press pause on your remote to spot him. The creators also slip in almost unnoticeable clues that relate to the current or future episodes, like a number on a license plate of a random person or a word on a coffee mug that an agent is drinking out of. The observers and these clues blend into the show as if they were just chosen randomly for background purposes or props but in reality everything is so carefully thought out. It makes one really appreciate the work that is being put into the show. All the small details that many people who watch the show probably don't pick up on or notice at all and never will. There are so many easter eggs (that's what fan sites call the clues) in each episode that I probably have missed a few things myself. It just shows you how much the creators care about the show, that they are willing to think of small fun details, even when there is a good chance most people won't even see them. They also have Fringe glyphs before each commercial break (you can find a translator for these glyphs on the internet) and each glyph stands for a letter. And by the end of the episode, you have a word that relates to the show or the current episode or again a clue for the next one. None of these little extras are crucial to your understanding of the show, they are just exciting freebies that help the viewer feel more involved in the show and it creates kind of a personal interest in the plot. Season 3 is definitely my favorite season of the series. It is by far the most suspenseful and exciting set of episodes so far, in my opinion. But actually this is all in my opinion haha:)
p.s. a really good website for it you want to follow along with all the Fringe easter eggs and just general fringy talk is [...]

If you haven't (and judging by the review I think you have) you NEED to watch LOST. You'll love it. Not saying it's better than Fringe, but it's incredible.
