In season three, episode ten, "The Firefly", Christopher Lloyd (Doc Brown from the Back to the Future trilogy) plays a character who sees his son who had died in 1985...the year of the "present" timeline in the Back to the Future trilogy. "The Firefly" revolves around "The Observer" explaining to Walter that their actions in 1985 had altered reality, a science fiction theme common to the Back to the Future trilogy. In the same episode, Walter puts on 3-D wire rimmed glasses and says to Astrid that he got the "look" from an old friend, Dr. Jacoby from Washington. Doctor Jacoby was a character who wore the same glasses on the television show, Twin Peaks (1990), which was set in Washington. (Possibly a stretch, but, Christopher Lloyd's character is Roscoe Joyce and his son's name is Bobby. Bobby was a charcter on Twin Peaks (1990) played by Dana Ashbrook, who appeared in nine episodes of Dawson's Creek (1998), which starred Joshua Jackson (Peter on this show).) See more »
Beginning in season one, establishing shots show the teams headquarters to be in a skyscraper which title cards identify as the "Boston Federal Building." However the building shown is actually Hancock Tower, a privately owned office building which is one of the most recognizable landmarks in Boston. The FBI is located in One Center Plaza which is across the street from Homeland Security office located in the John F. Kennedy Federal Building located downtown at Government Center. Both buildings are in direct proximity to Boston City Hall, a city courthouse, police station, local NBC/CW television station and immigration offices. See more »
I had started watching Fringe when it aired in my country, and at first, I didn't really find it particularly interesting. However, I decided to persevere with it, and I'm very glad I did. This show is not perfect, but it's definitely not as bad as all these reviews tend to make out. With each episode (so far), I find myself more deeply immersed in the plot, more involved with the characters, and I can't wait until the next one airs. A lot of these other reviews say it's worse than 'Lost' - which isn't true. I tried watching Lost, for the entire first season, but I found myself completely bored, with no real plot line to follow. The opposite is true with Fringe. Each episode has two plots - One, the overall plot of the series, and two, the plot of the individual episode, such as the investigation. This is common practice, but Fringe makes it.. fresher.
All in all, don't make any decisions on whether to watch this or not based off reviews on here. There's a lot of controversy - some hate it, some love it - just watch it for a while and judge it for yourself. I personally don't like the first 10 or so episodes, so I recommend you at least for a bit after that. They honestly do get better. 9/10
