Fringe > Fringe Review: Haven't We Been Here Before? > Comments Page 4
I have to agree with the review. I love all the characters, but I feel the show is at it's strongest when focused on Olivia. I find it strange that she has taken such a back seat so far, especially when you consider how it was in the earlier seasons. I'm not saying that the other character shouldn't have storylines, but I've always thought of Olivia as the main character so it seems weird for her to be sidelined. Thats just my opinion, I know some will not agree. And unlike the reviewer I haven't lost faith.
Why do I get the feeling somewhere down the line we're going to get the "Altered States" scene with Peter banging down a hallway morphing out of Observerhood and finding salvation in Olivia's arms (I just pray that don't have Aha's "Take On Me' as the soundtrack to the scene).
Well, this is not a review, more a rant. So I call this comment review of this review: Fringe isn't story about one character, it is more about characters influence on each other and consequences of their own decisions. Walter and his primer sin, Peter and his lost world and Olivia as glue and product shaped by actions of Bishops boys. She is in between and story in this final chapter called season 5 finally coming in full circle of consequences. Asking for AT material is your right as fan of her work, which was in course of 4 year nothing more than amazing (she deserves 10 emmys!), but now is time for closure and there is more to Fringe than Olivia Duhnam. John Noble, Joshua Jackson, Jasika Nicole, Lance Reddick and Blair Brown as actors all deserves closure to their character which they gave five four years of own life to shape them. And we as fans also deserve this closure. I want closure on Olivia, on Peter, on Peter AND Olivia, on Walter AND Peter.And I want writers to give us fi
I thought this was one of the better eps of this season. Can't wait to see what happens to Peter.
I'm not a fan of this review either. I guess I see this final 13 eps differently in that I'm loving where they have taken Olivia's character in the first five episodes. She has become a much more open character emotionally now, which is a direction I think they needed to take her. Olivia is the stable one at the moment, so I see her character becoming the rock for everybody else.
I'm sure there will be consequences for Peter with what he has done, eventually. Grief doesn't make you think rationally and Peter is completely broken. Plus there is the parallel that he is doing exactly what Walter did in grief. "Be a better man than your father" ( a phrase brought up quite a few times during the seasons), is probably what this arc will end up addressing and Olivia will be the one that will bring Peter back. So, I can see them further down the track fighting the fight together, but only when Peter confronts his grief and what he has done.
All three characters will complete their
John, your comments are welcome. Please make one.
Rion, Peter has had many stories. He was the savior of the universes. The key to everything. He's always been important. Wouldn't it have been nice if, as you call them, POLIVIA could have fought this fight together? One episode he was trying to pull her back to the world, the next she was in it and he flew away. They're killing the characters I've loved, and I've loved them equally and together.
This review was only 50% BS. The season is, however, 90% BS.
Peter FINALLY gets a storyline where he is not collected like a lost umbrella--yet---but it trashes him and Polivia; switching to more Olivia worship, or the altverse, won't help.
And dear God if they get a movie deal, don't let it be a continuation of this.
This review was complete BS. Please don't write more.
