5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant fourth season, and a great DVD edition, 15 Oct 2012

This review is from: Fringe - Season 4 [DVD + UV Copy] [2012] (DVD)
Fringe has been one of my top three shows for a long time and its hard to see, after completing this awesome fourth season, how it could ever be knocked out of that top three rank.
With Peter having misteriously dissapeared after making a sacrifice to save both universes from being destroyed there are stranger- well stranger- things afoot in the world of FBI agent Olivia Dunham and the Fringe team. I won't go into plot details because that will spoil it for those who haven't seen this season yet but there are some corking plot twists and some breathtaking cliffhangers. As usual there are a handful of 'creature of the week' episodes that offer relatively standalone cases but do have a few hints and plot strands that continue and run through subsequent and previous episodes. What i will say is that the Observers are greatly expanded on in this season and there is also the return of a couple of old faces, one of which takes an unexpected turn as a villian.
As with every season of Fringe, the quality of writing, acting, directing and plots is outstanding- each episode plays like a movie. There are some excellent special effects, intriguing new Fringe cases and the overall plot arc thickens and deepens and many questions, not all however, are answered. It's sad to think that Fringe only has one more season to go, but we're just lucky to have that to look forward to as season four's finale was outstanding and the cliffhanger opens up endless, intriguing possibilities for Fringe's fifth and final season.
If you are new to Fringe, start with season one, you will not regret it. JJ Abrams, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman have given us something special with Fringe when they created it and its a journey that stands multiple viewings. This truly is a marvel of television, perhaps even surpassing Lost in quality and addictiveness.

This DVD set is brilliant, packed with extras. The final disc (disc 6) contains a blooper reel which is funny, but not as good as those of previous seasons; there are a couple of featurettes on Peter's plot line for this season and the reason the writers made the decisions they did, as well as the mythology surrounding the Observers; also included is a preview and a featurette on the digital comic book written by Joshua Jackson (Peter) about Peter's journey after the third season.
