I agree. And BTW, I was actually calling her "Bolivia" in this episode.

Loved this episode, hopefully I'm not catching-up just so this show ends. I hope there's one more season...if not, hopefully they could wrap this up cleanly, however impossible that might be.

Situations like Olivia having to be possessed for an entire episode by him to include the character is a classic jump-the-shark moment.

I want to say that it was a jump the shark moment except for that when Olivia was in Bell's office way back when, he rang a bell for no reason at all.

I do like this show and it was going great so far, but this episode was pushing it a bit. Bells soul, come on now. Yes she did a great job with the impression but it was only a ploy to get Nimoy character back on the show. The writers better be careful.

I love that THIS is the one thing you guys can't grasp. Of all the weirdo shit on this show, THIS can't be believed?

I thought it was a fun sub-plot, especially having Lincoln show up so Olivia couldn't recognize him.

there really is no "jumping the shark" on a show like this...the whole premise is based on fringe phenomenon

how can someone accept observers, fotw, crossing over, etc and then have a problem with *Bellivia* lol

My thoughts exactly. I thought it was something really different and added that element of comedy amidst the seriousness.

Re: Fringe -- "Stowaway" -- 3/18/11

Is it considered gay if Peter or Walter has sex with Bellivia?

Possible spoilers ahead for the final episode of the season:

I was on the set of Fringe last night in Vancouver and saw the following:

Oh, and I'll actually go back and say that these are probably big spoilers for the final episode - this set up I'm going to explain may very well be from the last scene for the finale.
Spoiler:

Forgive me if some of this stuff has been explained already, I'm 5 episodes behind in catching up.

I am fairly certain that those who have been saying there's a 3rd universe are correct.

They were filming in front of the Orpheam theater (where they crossed over the 1st time), there were demolished cars in the street, the Orpheam sign busted down - possible partially into the ground. There was a sign up on a fake subway station for "suborbital tours - now cheaper than ever"

The last bit is what's making me think this is a 3rd universe. Hell, the alt-universe is flying around in Zeppelins and I don't recall (at least in what I've seen to this date), anything about civilians behind able to fly near space).

On set was both Anna Torv and Joshua Jackson. I'd post pics, but still on vacation and I don't have an account to set up hosting.

They had signs up stating that if you were in the crowd, they could use you in the show and that by standing there you gave them permission. I don't think I was in any of the shots, but I suppose it's possible.

Spoiler:
multiple universe ain't no spoiler, very first thing i pointed out when they first started crossing over was "red phone charlie and the different fringe division" that we have not been seeing on the *red* episodes

Spoiler:

If they have space flights for fun in the alt-universe why do they use zeppelins for cross-country navigation??? That doesn't make any sense.


I'll probably upload pics sometime in the next week. I'm home from vacation tomorrow, but will surely be a bit tired from nearly a week of cycling and am hosting a party that night. Sunday will be vacation/party recovery day.
