Synopsis

The critically acclaimed and fan-favorite series, FRINGE, returns for its fifth and final season to deliver a climactic conclusion…in all worlds. Picking up from events depicted in season four's flash-forward episode, the seemingly peaceful Observers seized control of our universe in 2015. Now, in 2036, they have become ruthless rulers who stand unopposed. What awaits in the future, however, is the Fringe Team's final stand, which will bring together all they have witnessed in preparation for the final battle to protect our world. Joining Fringe scientist Water Bishop, FBI agent Olivia Dunham, Peter Bishop and the Fringe team is Olivia and Peter's now-grown daughter, Etta, in a final season filled with struggle, surprises, and sacrifice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Be a better man than your father... 19 Jan 2013
Format:DVD
Please note that I won't pretend to be impartial, but this is just my opinion. Personally, I've always loved Fringe, and think this final run has been tremendous, but I know that many haven't been as enamoured. All I can encourage you to do is buy the DVD and try it for yourself. I'll try and give you an idea of what to expect, whilst being as spoiler-free as possible.

To put it delicately, this Final Season of Fringe has proven to be very divisive, the time-jump into the future aside. In opting to focus more on the quiet emotional moments between the main characters, the series' trademark streak of weird and wonderful craziness has been toned down a little, leading many to claim this last 13-episode run has been 'boring'. I respectfully disagree. It's these little moments between characters that have always made Fringe more than just another throwaway sci-fi series. 'Weird science' may be what Fringe started off as being about, but since then it has matured into quite a brilliant family-related drama, and a thought-provoking discussion on the relationship between pure emotion and pure intellect, technology and faith, the old and the new, the unknown and the conventional. But above all it has been about the relationship between father and son, between Walter and Peter, and that is where this Final Season places its focus. It goes for the emotional jugular, without sacrificing its intellectual integrity, and it connects. It provides satisfying answers to long-standing questions without feeling as if the writers are simply painting-by-the-numbers. It's difficult to create an ending that feels fitting both plot-wise and emotionally, but somehow they managed it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally someone got it right!!! 27 Mar 2013
Format:DVD
One of the best scifi series ever made for tv so naturally I was that much more apprehensive they would mess it up right at the end, like so many of its predecessors, Lost and Battlestar Galactica coming to mind first and foremost, well, my mind anyway. But I didn't have to worry, the creators of Fringe did a wonderful job and gave a great sendoff to the characters that I became so fond of over the years. Like many have already said before me, it does constitute a criminal injustice that John Noble hasn't received just about every tv acting award in existence for an acting performance that has been so consistently fantastic that it would lead me to say the best television acting performance I have ever been lucky enough to have been witness to and I have seen many many tv series the last 40 years.
Not that I won't miss the other regulars as well, I never had the pleasure of loving two characters in one series that were played by the same performer, fantastic job Anna Torv. Joshua Jackson was equally great, this last season no exception, though I was relieved that this season, when there is a major twist to his character, my worries of where the central plot for his character would take him because of it proved unfounded.
The season's final is just perfect, so well balanced in tone, emotion and suspense, I could only give a big sigh at the end of it, both of satisfaction that it was everything and more than I had hoped for as well as sadness that I'd just seen the final moments of a series I had loved so much.
Thank you all involved for these 5 years, you contributed in creating an oasis in the tv landscape desert we find ourselves in so often.
And yes, that includes kudos to Fox for sticking with this series and its fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars a perfect ending 4 Jun 2013
By cmac
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
What a perfect way to complete the collection of arguably the best show ever to appear on television. This box set of s5 is the same style as prior seasons. The quality of the presentation, along with HD quality of the episodes is pretty flawless. It now sits snugly in my vast BR collection, under the letter F, side by side with s1-s4. Just a perfect collection if high quality tv , all in the one place, perfect !!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fitting conclusion 27 May 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Harking back to an episode in Season 4, this whole season is based in 2036, the Observers have taken over, and so we have the Loyalists ans the Resistance, The Fringe team is not as it was, in the four previous seasons, they have to hunt for clues as to how to overthrow the Observers...It is a season that is shortened to 13 episodes, and done on a smaller budget, but that doesn't really distract from the Brilliant series, that is Fringe...

4.0 out of 5 stars Fringe Season 5. 31 Dec 2013
Format:DVD
The final season of Fringe. To bring you upto date, Fringe was co-created by JJ Abrams - who also created Lost. Lost ran for 6 seasons, and Fringe finished after 5. Whilst both shows are quite different, they share the same DNA. A multi-layered look a sci-fi and human relationships - both told with 'I need to see what happens next!' story telling.

Fringe was a beacon of hope during the past few years of throwaway weekly crime schedule fillers - a character driven sci-fi TV show that didn't shy away from high concept lunacy. They were never afraid to stretch the possibilities of science in the name of exciting storytelling. Add to this pop culture references, discussion about morality, faith and ethics and a huge self awareness of its own mythology - you have have a refreshing injection of sci-fi geekery.

To avoid too many spoilers I'll move right onto season 5 and assume you've seen the previous 4 seasons and just want to know if its worth finding out how they wrap things up. In short - if you've watched seasons 1-4 and enjoyed it, season 5 is a no-brainer. You'd be doing a huge injustice to yourself by not completing this season, just for completist reasons.

Did I enjoy it? For the most part yes. There was a turning point for me in the show when they knocked the shine off almost enough to put me off - when they made the show about 'the power of love' and it became about good old humans with their emotions vs emotionless people from the future that have forgotten what it is to 'feel'. They almost lost lost me, but luckily this theme was less and less heavily layered in place of a tale about a dystopian future - and thank God.
