PostSubject: 2x15 Peter - Several recaps and reviews   Sat Apr 03, 2010 10:42 pm

Quote :
When last we left our team of plucky investigators, they had finally figured out it wasn’t a ghost at all in the abandoned amusement park, but actually Mr. Worthington in a costume! Sorry, wrong show.

Actually, FBI investigator Olivia Dunham, discovered that her partner – and possible romantic interest – Peter Bishop is from another dimension, one that she has the ability to interact with . Not only that, but his father, Walter, knows about it. And we, the viewers know this: Walter kidnapped Peter. A great set-up for the triumphant return of a sci-fi show, wouldn't you say?

. . . It’s the “Fringe” version of The Mirror of Erised from the first “Harry Potter” novel: showing the heart’s desire of both Walter and his wife, Elizabeth by showing a frail yet alive version of their son. That “Potter” comparison only makes sense: Harry was the boy who lived; Peter is the boy who HAS to live. That’s what September insists, for reasons which are still unclear. (I smell a season finale reveal coming!)
. . . at first, he found it odd that the image in his window was now flesh in his laboratory. But once he saw the look in Elizabeth’s eyes when holding The Boy Who Needs to Live, Walter truly saw at least part of the giant problem he had created. What do they say about the road to hell, again?

. . .leaves Olivia will a moral quandary: stay the course with her makeshift, potentially world-saving team, or tell Peter the truth about his origins? Armed with the information of Walter’s actions and Peter’s importance, she has to perform quite the balancing act from here on out. After all, if Peter found out about the Walternate, well, that might suddenly swing the tide way over to that universe’s side, wouldn’t it?
Fringe returns: 'Peter'

Quote :
the superb irony of “Peter” was that the Observer’s need for Peter to stay alive is entirely different than Walter’s — one involves the fabric of the universe, the other the bonds between a father and his son.
NY Mag: The boy is important

Quote :
After a two month hiatus, J.J. Abrams’ sci-fi procedural returns with an episode that instantly offers fans a reason to keep themselves glued to their TV sets (or whichever other medium they choose to watch it on – this is the 21st century, after all).
. . .
In patented Abrams fashion, the episode also manages to answer several questions while raising a few more, such as in what way is Peter so important to these bald-headed Observers that they would advocate the potentially universe-destroying portal between two worlds to save him?

And this one is very nice, gives a lot of props (well, everyone rightly is) to John Noble, and delves more into Walter's motivations:

Quote :
Oh, how this show just keeps getting better and better. While it
might somewhat be related to the feverish anticipation of the last
couple of days, fanned by an eight-week hiatus and a Twitter #Fringe movement,
the topmost reasons why this episode instantly became a fan favourite
are fourfold. First, the amazing storytelling made the hour go by in
what felt like 10 minutes; second, John Noble’s amazing performance;
third, the preparation was carefully and meticulously done in the last
year and a half; and fourth, while so many questions were finally
answered, there are yet still so many more that remain to be answered.
I see now what you did there, JJ Abrams, and I like it.

And one more! Critics are adoring this--and I must add that I am too, now that the pain of all those tears has abated.

'Fringe': 1985

Wow.
OK, forgive me, but I’m going to spend the entirety of this post raving about how great “Fringe” was tonight.

Quote :
How loud can I yell this – “Peter” is exactly what
“Fringe” needs to be. Beyond the fact that it contained some of the
best writing in the series and an incredible performance by John Noble,
“Fringe” truly separated itself from its brethren “X-Files” and “Lost”
by showing the audience what exactly happened. “Fringe” teased, then
followed through. I know the instinct must be “if we show them
everything, we won’t have anything else to show,” but cast that aside,
“Fringe.”
