A quick review of the "Fringe" season 4 premiere coming up just as soon as I need to erase someone from time...
As I've said before, "Fringe" is a tough show for me to write about regularly because it airs on Friday nights (weekends are family time) and I only get to see a handful of episodes in advance each season. Fortunately, Ryan McGee will be continuing his exhaustive episode reviews at our Monkeys as Critics blog, and his take on "Neither Here Nor There" is already up. I'll pop in when I can, sometimes maybe several days late, but Ryan does such a great job - and he and I are usually so in tune - that I'm comfortable leaving the show as his turf.
(*) The worst of those was their initial appearance, where they began talking about how traces of Peter were still showing up in the timeline before we'd gotten any significant examples of that. Drop a few big clues first, fellas.
John Noble's great, as always, and Anna Torv did a good job of portraying what seems to be the 57th different version of Olivia so far, but this one was kind of a mess. If the producers didn't feel confident in their ability to sell this story and keep Joshua Jackson (mostly) off-screen for a few weeks, I'd rather they have just done something else altogether. This is likely the final season of the show, and I'd rather they not waste part of it on an idea no one's comfortable executing.
What did everybody else think?
