Just finished watching it and, like some, I´m a bit on the fence. It´s a good show that has a lot going for it, most of all the cast. The acting is outstanding at times and gives you some really beautiful moments between the characters. John Nobles performance is among the best I´ve ever seen on TV. And I became very fond of Anna Torv. And despite the fact that a lot of the scientific background is borderline at best the show never feels silly. But like some others mentioned I too think the plot went south during the later parts. The first two season got me hooked pretty fast, the third I think was at times to much to fast. But with the forth came the nosedive. It deteriorated to a point where I simply didn´t cared anymore for the plot and just went on watching to see how it ends. Not to mention that the conclusion has huge logical problems. I´m not regretting watching it but I don't want to watch it again.

Best Series Ever By Far !!!

The ending of the final season was such a big let down =(

I watched 100+ tv series but Fringe is my favorite. I am really missing Fringe.

This is an absolutely splendid series, but it is not for the faint of heart. You will notice that after 10-15 episodes in, there are so many unanswered questions. To add fuel to the fire, they only add more questions to the bank. It got to the point that before the even answered ANY of them, I was already so lost that I had completely forgot how they all connected. Don't misinterpret this as I did not enjoy the series, because I did, it was just a lot of moving pieces that added up to a huge puzzle that got answered in the last episode. Everything before that was just unanswered questions that left a lot of cliffhangers. Otherwise, good show.

Rewatching season 3. Could never get tired of it!!

Best sci-fi show ever!!!

avatar

the sci-fi aspect of this show is very entertaining but i think its strength lies in how much heart it has and how absolutely heartbreaking and lovely the characters and relationships are. i really wish it wasn't so underrated. i guess the final season and the series finale in general didn't satisfy everyone but since for me this was a story about family and love i thought it was perfect.

I watched this show when it aired and rated it a '9' when I joined Trakt a few years back. However, I decided to rewatch a few days ago which has turned into a complete binge.....honestly enjoying it so much more the second time around. I am pretty confident that once I've gone through this iteration I will be bumping my score up to 10. Some of the 'episodes-of-the-week' are a bit formulaic and derivative of what has gone before. However, even in some of the weaker episodes (which are few and far between in my opinion) what really props it up is the excellent cast of characters and watching their relationships develop with each other. Great balance of sci-fi, feels, and funnies with plenty of twists and turns.....totally engaging. Oh and Walter Bishop is, perhaps, one of the greatest TV characters ever created.

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
