Free Your Mind, Fringies
Since today is the last day of filming for our beloved Fringe, I thought it appropriate to mention the Twitter event now instead of waiting until the last minute, which is what I usually end up doing. I'm supposed to be working right now. But so what? Fringe is more important. Use the hashtag #FreeYourMind on Twitter this Friday at 8PM EST during "Black Blotter."
There are only a few episodes left. The last two are airing on January 18, 2013, the day a collective fandom breaks down and you hear a high-pitched wailing around the world. Yeah, we love Fringe. If you don't get it then you've never seen it. Or you were too impatient to stick around for a few episodes to see that it would become a beautiful experiment in weirdness anchored to reality by relationships that feel real, loveable characters you want to protect, incredibly soulful writing, and effortless acting of the highest skill. But that's all just words. Watch the pilot, just one episode, and see if there's not something there. Make it to "Snakehead" in Season 2 and I'll give you a cookie, because if you were just going along with it until then, you will suddenly realize the talent of John Noble and completely fall in love with the show. At least, that's when I did.
Update: And here's one of the reasons we love this show so much, showrunner Joel Wyman.
As an example, here are a few tweets from the previous event. Pointless now because I'm updating the day after the show aired. I just don't want to lose them. You can only go so far back when you search.
