Product Description

Product Description

From J.J. Abrams (Lost), Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman--the team that brought you Star Trek, Mission Impossible: III and Alias--and executive producers Jeff Pinkner and Bryan Burk comes a drama that will thrill, terrify and explore the blurring line between science fiction and reality.

When an international flight lands at Boston's Logan Airport and the passengers and crew have all died grisly deaths, FBI Special Agent Olivia Dunham is called in to investigate. When the search nearly kills her partner, Special Agent John Scott, a desperate Olivia searches frantically for someone to help, leading her to Dr. Walter Bishop, our generation's Einstein. There's only one catch: he's been institutionalized for the last 20 years, and the only way to question him requires pulling his estranged son, Peter, in to help. Under Special Agent Phillip Broyles, our trio will discover that what happened on that fatal flight is only a small piece of a larger, more shocking truth.

Synopsis

All the mind-bending adventures of the acclaimed Fringe series are gathered here in the complete seasons one through four. From the first paranormal cases explored by Special Agent Olivia Dunham, eccentric scientist Walter Bishop and his eclectic son Peter through the dynamic conflict between parallel universes, the implications of these events are far-reaching, complex…and extremely dangerous to the world as we know it!

Fringe is a series that to me felt like an X-Files 2.0. After seeing the full 4 seasons I know I was wrong. It's in a league of it's own. If you like CSI, X-Files and sci-fi then you will like Fringe.

Pro
This box is very well made, the boxes are solid, that is they aren't of such flimsy plastic you're worried to break them when you open them.
Fringe itself is ofcourse the biggest pro.

Con
This only counts if you want subtitles.
If you're from the scandinavian countries you are oke with subtitles, if not then you will have to do without them in season 3 and 4.

As I didn't really need subtitles I still gave 5 stars.

Having been introduced to 'The Fringe' by my sister's family (they are all obsessed by it), and having seen Series 1 on a set of DVD's they had, I became obsessed by it too. They had series 2 and 3 but on blu-ray which I couldn't play, so I had to order the complete 1 - 4 to be sent when it was available. I am mightily impressed by the everything about this series; the stories (which show the influences of, amongst others, 'Dr Who', 'Star Trek' [OS, NG, V, DS-9], and the 'X-Files'), the cracking dialogue, the production values, and not to mention the excellent performances given by everyone in the cast, not just by the main characters but by the people featured in each episode and minor characters as well. I was not a little surprised to find that the series has not won any Emmys (only being nominated in any case for Best Visual Effects). John Noble is outstanding as Dr Walter Bishop, and neither he nor Anna Torv have garnered the critical acclaim that they should have done. Given the premise of alternate universes, meaning that there are multiple versions of each character who often have very different personalities, the acting talent shown is remarkable. For British Sci-Fi fans who adopted the 'X-Files' as one of their own; who watched all the Star Trek versions; and grew up on Dr Who, and are big on the current series', 'The Fringe' should be a total winner. I can't recommend it highly enough!

Having been since many years ago a fan of science fiction in film, and being now 70 years in age, I have seen many series of this type along the years.
However, in terms of quality I have never seen anything like Fringe. Why ? Because the general plot is very well constructed (connecting also very well the episodes) , the sucessive "events" of fringe science are well thought and presented, and,, perhaps above all, the actors are convincing , from the "four commanders" (Peter , his father, Olivia and Broyles)to the occasional participants.
In this series never happens the irritating way of doing that I have seen many times in the past of presenting a lot of scientific new ideas that because they were not studied in full, end up in a complete mess, leaving the viewer with the sensation of having been fooled around.
Furthermore the special effects are very well done, adding to the general credibility of the series . I again stress, the best sci-fi series I have seen !!!

Started watching it again, had to stop, needed to sleep ! if you are fan of this, then this is a must from the beginning, especially if you have watched the entire 1-5 series, a lot of things will fit into place and you will realise what the final chapters were really all about. Great, love it !

So why not 5 stars? It's more of a 4.5 stars.
Well, Series 1 was very X-Files - The Next Generation. It was becoming a bit 'Monster of the Week-ish' and I'm old enough to have been there and seen an awful lot of that.
Once Season 2 and 3 got going, Fringe became compulsive viewing. The cast - especially John Noble are superb.
Then we come to Season 4 - which despite the lack of the lovely Joshua Jackson for the first few episodes, was excellent and innovative drama.
After hmm, many years of idle tv watching, I was gripped by Season 4. The plots were fresh and there were many 'wow' moments.
Really though, someone should have nominated John Noble for an Emmy. That man brings something wonderful to the screen.

Brilliant, original series, it really does shine out.
My daughter and I are eagerly awaiting season 5's release in May, These are set to be the last ever episodes and we will sorely miss Olivia Dunham and Walter and Peter Bishop.
We love the humour in the show and for real Fringe buffs there are added riddles,and hidden quest such as spotting the observer in each show.

This is a truly fantastic series - a bit overlooked compared to other JJ Abrams series like Lost or Alias, but my favourite of all of them. At heart, it is about the relationship between a father and a son, but it is wrapped up an X-Files type package. The lead actors deliver not just with the characters as they originally play them, but other permutations of the characters and throughout it all it maintains its own sense of style and a dark humour.
