Just listened to Amy’s piece – great as usual – and it has piqued my interest in Fringe. Sadly, it’s only shown on Sky in the UK, which, for reasons I won’t go into, I will not subscribe to. So, I’ll have to go looking for the DVD box sets…
I think it’s a genuinely brilliant show. Amy’s piece was great as always. It’s gone a little OTT at the moment but the ride is well worth it.
There’s some fantastic episodes and in particular 2 which stick in mind are the episodes White Tuplip and an episode about a man with the ability to work everything out (I can’t remember what the name of he ep was). Both were brilliant.
The show’s full of literary and genre references but, if I have one criticism, it’s that the writers have shied of telling the story. There’s so many threads that are left dangling that I can’t see how they are going to reconcile them all.
PS. Forgot to mention: if you’re on Goodreads.com, and you have a mailing address in the US or Canada, you can sign up for one of two giveaway copies of the Fringe Science book here as part of the Goodreads First Reads program.
