WATF: Fringe – Episode 103: The Ghost Network

My “Well After The Fact” (or WATF) reviews are my personal analysis of content. Usually this means that I purchase wrestling dvds, graphic novels/trade paperbacks, and television episodes of genre entertainment on the cheap, through ebay or other means. And then I review them.

Well, I’ve been abandoned. You make your vows, saying that you’ll be there in sickness and in health, good times and bad, richer and poorer.  But they never make you vow, that you will watch a television show with your spouse, unless both of you agree to stop watching.  That should be in the nerdy/genre fan wedding vows.

And here Fringe does it, in Episode 102: The Same Old Story

WATF: Fringe – Episode 101: Pilot

My “Well After The Fact” (or WATF) reviews are my personal analysis of content. Usually this means that I purchase wrestling dvds, graphic novels/trade paperbacks, and television episodes of genre entertainment on the cheap, through ebay or other means. And then I review them.

This is my first review of the television show, Fringe.  I have been enjoying this since it debuted in September.  It is the fourth television series developed by JJ Abrams and the Bad Robot production company.  And I loved Alias and Lost, so Fringe was a no brainer.

Onto the review of the pilot episode of Fringe, originally broadcast on 09/09/2008:
