Mark Watches ‘Fringe’ Liveblog – Alone In The World

After a fantastic episode last week, I’m even more excited to continue on the journey that is season four of Fringe. This week, STUFF HAPPENS and I DON’T KNOW WHAT IT IS, because I don’t read spoilers. OMG EXCITING. Let us liveblog the HELL out of Fringe!

YESSSSSS. Thanks for all the new people who joined last week! Tell your friends to participate in these liveblog parties. They are so fun!

Because we are all on the exact same ground this time around, our spoiler policy for these blogs will be completely different. Anything that has aired in the past is fair game for discussion. Anything that has not publicly aired WILL BE CONSIDERED A SPOILER.

This liveblog will work in relative to when the episode airs for you. So, you may begin your livebloggy commenting down below when the episode starts. To avoid spoilers, I stick to the first page and comment away, and then go back afterwards to add any more

DO. NOT. POST. SPOILERS. This community is not the place for that. You have the rest of the fucking Internet. Go there.

    Yay, Fringe liveblog!

    <img src=""&gt;
    I completely forget what happened in the preview of this week's episode, so I have no idea what to expect! I hope Kennedy's back, and I'm really liking what they're doing with Olivia. Oh, and I wonder how Walter's terror about the Petergeist will evolve in this episode.

    I always love reading the liveblog comments. I wonder if I'll ever be able to actually participate in one. 🙁 Tonight I am going to be murdering heretics and aliens in a tabletop RPG called Dark Heresy. I will be thinking of all the weird and wonderful shit happening on Fringe though.

      • Dent D says:

        Oh Mark! ALL OF MY LOVE is going to you right now for wanting to play Dark Heresy! I will try to be as succinct as possible (which may not be possible at all).

        Dark Heresy is set in the Warhammer 40,000 (also known as Warhammer 40K) universe. Essentially, we are shown the universe 40,000 years into the future, where EVERYTHING IS AWFUL. Most of humanity worships a God-Emperor who is essentially a corpse kept alive through horrible daily sacrifices of thousands of people from many many worlds with psychic talent. Humanity is now fighting a constant battle against aliens (called Xenos in this setting), people who worship Chaos gods, and heretics who turn to witchcraft.

        Dark Heresy is an RPG that puts players into the roles of human agents working for the Inquisition. It is a branch of the church that looks for heresy and burns it out (quite often, literally burns it out WITH FIRE). The agents are tasked with specific missions. While it is nice to actually succeed in the missions, what usually happens is the players just struggle to survive.

        Using the first mission provided in the core rulebook for the game, it is entirely possible for the entire party of players to be WIPED OUT. Our group lost two characters and several limbs

        It's pretty gory and REVELS in the grimdark-ness of it all. There isn't a whole lot of "happy" in this game, but our group has a lot of fun with it.

        And now I am super curious. Mark, have you played tabletop RPGs in the past?? If so what and did you enjoy it?

    I assume the liveblog is on East Coast viewing times right? Alas, I'm on the West Coast…so I'll shall have to stay away.

    • xpanasonicyouthx says:

      Nope!!! It's relative to you. So you can join me at 9:00pm. I just avoid reading the comments and comment away in the box at the bottom!

  4. __Jen__ says:

  6. carma_bee says:

    My roommate watches Fringe with me every week but she only started watching at the season 4 premier, so it's fun to watch it with her. I have to explain some things but it's good, lol

  7. __Jen__ says:

    Is it just me or does this actor always play untrustworthy characters?

  8. monkeybutter says:

    So Walter's not completely free.

  9. monkeybutter says:

    And Olivia and Astrid have to report on him? Ouch.

  10. knut_knut says:

      • monkeybutter says:

        Very true. But he's really good at being a terrible human being. John Noble for all the Emmys, as usual!

    • Shiroikami says:

      Yeah, but did you hear what he was saying? "I'm right here Walter. I want to come home."

      He was saying important things, and I could only hear some of them because Walter was trying to drown him out!!!

      • monkeybutter says:
