The Final PushThese are all the things I did in the last couple of weeks for Fringe. I don't feel like having them lost in the shuffle of posts. Fringe was the most important show in my life, the best thing that ever happened. Now that it's over maybe I'll post something once in a while, but I'm sure I'll be back to talking mostly about other things. A sad thought.

I also just updated my Fringe playlists at YouTube and recategorized everything. It took forever, and they're great videos, so I might as well include them.
And my tweets for Fringe's final two episodes, "Liberty" and "An Enemy of Fate." I will miss this. It was fun showing my support for this tremendous show.
Fringe has always been completely genuine in its depiction of family and love. That is why we #KeepLookingUp.— Erin Bates (@Reinbeast) January 19, 2013
This one I messed up and didn't separate the first word from John's name, so I just now tweeted it again.
I also left comments here and there, such as...

"Whatever happens I know that Joel and company won't let me down. They did what they thought right for the story. That may mean that Walter dies. I assume as much, because my favorite characters always die. I've been expecting it since the end of the second season. I'll never be prepared for it, but I'm certain this will be one of those rare instances where it's done for an actual reason and won't take away my love of the show. I will love it more than I thought possible, as happens with every Fringe finale. And if Walter, Olivia, Peter, Astrid, and Broyles all survive, I will be surprised and think, 'How very Fringe.'" Again, Fringe blew past my expectations. I wasn't as nervous as I might have been, because Joel kept reassuring us he loved the characters, which was obvious in his writing and direction. He even said it was hopeful at the end. It was. It was beautiful. And, as usual, it surprised me.
These last two are from December, but I'm including them anyway.
