Never Met a Zombi I Didn’t Like…

FRINGE executive producer Jeff Pinkner explains mind blowing Season Finale

Fringe-castGood sci-fi programming is alive and well with everything JJ Abrams is touching these days as Lost, his new Star Trek film, and now Fringe, are giving fans of this genre a lot to think about with the concept of alternative universes and time travel. Tuesday night’s season one finale of Fringe [on Fox] featured one really fascinating WOW moment. In the last scene of the episode “There’s More Than One of Everything”, Olivia (Anna Torv) finds herself in an alternative reality in which John F. Kennedy is alive and well, the White House is being rebuilt and, most shocking of all, it is revealed that the office of William Bell (Leonard Nimoy), the founder of Massive Dynamics, is in one of the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York. I must admit when the camera panned outside the office to reveal the Towers it felt like a Planet of the Apes moment. It clearly was a ballsy move by the show’s writers as they had to know this re-creation would possibly be offensive to some. Still, as sci-fi goes, it was truly a memorable moment that will hopefully get people talking about the show even more as one of the very best offerings on TV these days. Walter Bishop (John Noble) at a grave site with a tombstone that has his son, Peter Bishop (Joshua Jackson), passing away at the age of seven was also pretty fascinating as it’s clear there are a ton of possibilities to explore in season two. Here’s what Fringe’s executive producer Jeff Pinkner has to say about the ending. Take a LOOK
