Review of the BD set not the show,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Fringe: Season 1 (+ BD-Live) [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
If you're looking at this, I assume you already have interest in this unique show, so I will focus this review on the blu-ray release. First things first, the cover has a cool reflective casing, with two different images. Nice touch considering the content of the show itself. It has the usual flip type case for multiple discs that we've seen in sets like Die Hard and Blade Runner. I actually prefer the flip cases to smaller individual cases. Also has multiple images on the CD's, the cover and the inside, nice touch. That's about it for cosmetics.
There is over 7 hours of bonus features including the bd-live content. BD-live is a very cool feature to have, even if you aren't utilizing it now, you might be in the near future and it includes a single insert with instructions on how to get started.
Special features exclusive on blu-ray include Fringe Pattern Analysis: Take a Closer Look at 6 select scenes with the experts. These are actually really nice, as they focus on select scenes, instead of just some broad behind the scenes generalization that you usually get as an "extra". And also additional writer/production commentary available through bd-live.
Some other goodies:
Featurettes on the show's creation, casting, the real science behind it and a great look at the special effects.
There is the feature of Fringe: Deciphering the Scene Sidebars on every episode, this is an interesting add-on. I thought it was cool.
Disected Files and Unaired scenes are here. Alot of extras involved in indiviual episodes, which I thought was great and any fan of the show will like, as I'm sure we all have our favorites and our "not-so-favorites."
I give this blu-ray set a enthusiastic thumbs up for all the extras. It's appreciated. I'm a fan of behind the scenes info and if you are as well, you'll enjoy this set.
Now, for the look. I have a blu-ray player (PS3) and an HDTV and all I can say, is beautiful. If you want to see what its capable of...this is it. The colors practically bleed off of the screen.
This is the best blu-ray package I've received since the Blade Runner release.

Thank you for discussing the blu-ray features of this box set. Most of the other reviews focus only the show and fail to mention any features of the set, let alone the blu ray aspect. Not only is your review top notch, you clearly spelled it out in the title. Your comments were exactly what I was looking for. Thank you!

I agree with "Gamer", I was debating about which set to purchase & loved to see that this has all the extra goodies included. Thanks again so much for adding the needed detail!
