FRINGE: OVER THERE, PART 1

Fuck me with a Cuisinart. I freaking LOVED this ep. We finally get to see the alt-verse, and it is messed up and awesome and I can't decide if I like it better than this universe.The alt-verse has more fascism and state control of stuff, but cooler buildings and better tech. A good trade-off?

I need to make/yank some icons.

Random observations:

1) Did the map of the USA look weird to anyone? Must study a screencap.

2) The poster at the bus shelter showed that Obama is running for RE-election.

3) What was that awesome freaky building next to the World Trade Center? Cortexiphan kid mentioned a hotel.

4) Peter's alt-mom is kind of awesome.Props for not overdoing the mushy reunion stuff.

5) Alt-Olivia is so different than our Olivia. The whole alt-Fringe division is super hot, Broyles and Astrid rocked the black military look like whoa.

6) Leonard Nimoy can do no wrong.

7) Blimps! FTW.

8) Not everyone can have an alt-verse self. Because for that too happen, everyone's parents would have to get together at exactly the same time. But if you DO have an alt-self, the urge to see what she's like would be very, very compelling.

9) I am eternally grateful that there is another Ep next week.

10) I am also grateful that Fringe in renewed.

11) I will probably dream about this ep tonight.

Which Olivia do you like better? I like ours, Alt-Olivia has a little too much swagger for my tastes.

AUGH. This post made me simultaneously so happy for you that you still have a show you can love and flail over and so sad for me that I really think probably I will never have one again. Woe. But yay for excellent season finales. I vaguely remember when those used to be fun! When Fringe is off the air I'll probably watch it because I enjoy the sort of supernatural/sci-fi stuff normally, but I doubt I'll obsess because I'm just a shippy girl. The cinematography looks awesome though.

You will find another TV show that you love. You just haven't met it yet.

Wierdly, the reaction on TVWoP has been kind of meh. I seem alone in my flail, but I haven't checked fringe_tv yet today.

Erm. Well let's see. I got into 24 in 2009 and XF went off the air in 2002, so I only have to wait . . . seven years! *sobs moar*

I am kinda looking forward to a huge mainline of Fringe when all is said and done, as long as everybody doesn't die. That way I won't notice the lack of shippiness as much because I'll be able to just keep going with plot.

And it's okay to be on your own in your flail! I'm an expert;)

And she was bronze. Wonder what's up with that.

And the USA Map looked like it had gobbled up a bit of Canada. Noooooo.

As handy as a naninite regeneration chamber would be, the rationed coffee could be a problem.

Peter is growing on me too.
