SPOILERS - if you haven't seen last night's episode...
Wow, interesting angle with Oldlivia being implanted with Newlivia's memories. Will be neat to see how it plays out. While the episode was good
though, it was kind of like the second Lord of the Rings movie...all that, and we're still kind of at the same part in the story... Hope it moves
along a little faster...
I haven't the strength to abstain from reading spoilers! Though I agree with you that the previews usually do give too much away. Movies do that a
lot too.. the protagonist will be looking for answers that we are already aware of because we've seen the previews! >_<
And I noticed you have a different avatar every week!

guys as an xfiles fan from back in the day ive been told this would be just right for me, any opinions?
Yeah definitely, I was a huge X-Files fan too and "Fringe" is very obviously similar. It also features a secret division of the FBI that
investigates strange occurrences!
Fringe is currently season 3, I definitely recommend starting with season 1. If you just want to jump right in, there is a very very short recap of
the first two seasons here, and also this
video has some very important plot points that should catch you up.
I'm happy to see Walter getting back to more of his old self...
I feel we're kind of losing Olivia though.
I mean, the one here is really the alternate Olivia...and the one there is our Olivia, but brainwashed into being "Newlivia" also...so two of
her...and ours is in limbo.
She does a great job of acting it though...different characters, without being obviously different, so very convincing. Must be tough to pull off.

just got into fringe upto ep 3 season 1, so far so good! Does it get better or worse ?
I agree with TheAssociate, better, definitely. There are occasional episodes that I find are just boring and don't advance the plot any, though. Also
in season 2 there is one episode that was shown out of continuity for some reason, just a warning.
There has to be some catalyst to win Fauxlivia (I like that) to the cause of "our" side...so this could be it. I don't think they'll go that far
though, I think the relationship alone will do it....(and thus, they get them together, without getting them together).
All in all, it's a pretty ingenious solution to the tv curse of having the sexual tension finally broken, that usually killed other shows.
It was a good episode, good ideas all around that led to Olivia figuring out she's not from there. Also interesting to see alter-Charlie catching on
to the ruse. Most shows would have kept her in the dark for weeks just to drag out the story longer. Although I really wouldn't mind seeing more of
this alternate world.
A few things about this episode:
-What's the deal with alter-Astrid? She's so much different in this universe.
-Walternate's idea of using water as sensory deprivation reminds me of it's uses in Season 1. Speaking of which, do you think we'll see John Scott
in this alternate universe?
-In this episode, Milo was able to finish other people's sentences. The last time we saw someone do that on Fringe was when Peter confronted the
Observer! But maybe it is just coincidence.
