Fringe Season 5 Preview

25 09 2012

It’s 2036. The Observers now rule. The big question is “Where’s Olivia?”

The 13-episode final season of Fringe begins Friday, September 28, 2012 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

When we left off in “Letters of Transit” in season 4’s “Letters of Transit”, we discover that the Fringe team was preserved in amber for 20 years. Peter is reunited with his daughter, Henrietta (Etta), who is now an adult.

Thanks to FOX VIP I received the wonderful privilege of viewing the premiere episode of season 5, “Transilience Thought Unifier Model-11.”

Things are quite different in the future. It’s a world full of bad air, egg sticks (Walter: “What a miserable future”) and amber gypsies. We learn more about things that happened to the original Fringe team both privately and as a unit. With only 13 episodes, the writers quickly get to the point and keep the momentum going, stopping only for important intimate moments between our characters, which left me crying several times. Some questions are answered by the end of the episode and others are raised. Although the episode remained dramatic, there were always moments of levity with nods to other science fiction/fantasy shows. I swear I saw a Daggit in the marketplace. “It’s always the red wire…unless it’s the white wire.” “Resistance is futile” and Etta’s response was priceless. Fans will be fed fabulous clues and symbolism.

The hashtag on Twitter for this episode will be #TheyAreHere. The Twitter protocol (from http://morethanoneofeverything.net/2012/09/19/we-were-warned-they-are-here-fringe-premiere-twitter-event/) is this (you can read it in more detail at the link):

Be sure to make your first tweet of the night a thank you to @FoxBroadcasting and @WarnerBrosEnt for making season five possible.

1) Don’t use #TheyAreHere before the designated time: 1 HOUR before Fringe airs. The event will take place 1 hour before Fringe airs – 8pm EDT.

2) One # term per Tweet. Use only #TheyAreHere

3) Lots of people tweeting matters more than the number of tweets.

4) Those with lots of followers help out a lot!

5) We want to pique the interest of non-Fringe fans.

6) We can discuss aspects of the show in our tweets.

7) Private accounts must have their locked status removed, as the tweets from locked accounts do not count toward the trend tally.

8) Retweets are the easiest way to help out the trending effort.

9) Remember to check in at GetGlue for cool stickers and so that Fringe will trend there as well.

Let’s all tune-in live to give Fringe the send-off it deserves (and leave the door open for movies?)
