Very fair grade. It definitely wasn't the show's most exciting episode, but it did a great job on character developement! I just hope they keep this show going. I would hate to see this show fall on the ever expanding list of cancelled shows that where "ahead of it's time" on Fox. They need to move it back to Tuesday nights!

I'd give it a "C", especially after the weak Tuesday episode. Probably my least favorite episode of all so far.

They have a new genre show "Past LIfe" debuting on Thursday, Feb 11. Hope this isn't a bad sign of things to come for Fringe.

 This episode was so, so ripped off from X-Files, the episode with the town of Vampires feeding off cows told from two points of view, and the infamous Hills Have Eyes episode with the inbreds.

Fair grade/ I remember those 2 X-files episodes and the only thing in common this has was it was in a small town. None of these people were Hills Have Eyes inbreds. That is such a knee jerk comment. Of course some things from Fringe will be like the X-files. Many have already been noted, but they aren't ripping anything off. Its like saying Ford is ripping of Chevy because they use tires on their vehilcles.

 One thing that sets Fringe apart is the Agent Broyles character.  In most shows he would be the unbelieving skeptic, a suit that the main characters would have to constantly work around and constantly butt heads with until he begrudgingly helps them.   Instead, Broyles has their back, believes in them and serves as a buffer between the Fringe team and the bureaucracy of the FBI and their superiors.

This episode was awesome, and no, it did not rip off X Files.  Was it very X Files-ish?  YES, and thank God!  Being like the X Files should be a compliment, not a complaint.  Fringe continues to impress me and I'm looking forward to (hopefully) many more future episodes.
