    Ugh, a full hour of "Walter, there is too much pepper in my paprikash. But I would be proud to partake of your pecan pie."

    Torv's poor impression aside, I enjoyed the episode. Ironic that it featured whatshername from Caprica and the storyline involved a bomb on a train.

    When she first walked on the roof I thought she was Ann Heish from HBO's Hung. I'm sure I didn't spell her name right.

    Actually I thought Torv got Nimoy's cadence down pretty well.

    As I said last week, it was a second-rate impersonation...good enough to know who she's trying to do, but not good enough to impress you with how good it was.

    But good enough for the job, I'd say, and she certainly seemed to have fun with it.

    I loved the interaction between Bellivia and Astrid :up:

    "maybe you can get Astrid to milk me" (or something like that) :D

    I thought Anna Torv did a pretty decent Mr. Spock impression. I hope they end it next episode though.

    It was fun seeking Lincoln Lee on this side. I hope he becomes a regular part of the team.

    I didn't mind Torv's impression of Nimoy so much. And I enjoyed the friendship between Walter and Bellivia. It was great for Walter to have someone to get high with. :D

    But I hope they don't drag it out too long, either.

    They sure seem to show Walter smoking weed more often now. :up:
    I want some of what he's smoking. I bet he grows some pretty good hybrids. :D

    After finally putting two and two together about who Lincoln was, I can see how the glasses worked so well for Clark Kent all these years.

    I kept thinking he looked familiar. Knew I'd seen him somewhere. Duh, it was on this very show! :p

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who couldn't figure out where I recognized him from. Stupid alternate universes.

    I too loved seeing Lincoln. He's more tightly wound on this side though. Hope we see more of him-if there is a fourth season. :(

    To Torv's credit, she also changed her body language some as well.

    As Rob says, it's not a great job (we're not talking Enver Gjokaj in Dollhouse here) but good enough and she does seem to be having some fun with it.

    And yes, it's good to see the friendship between "William" and Walter here. I also smiled at them solving the train math problem.

    I also like the fact that Peter is totally freaking out over this.

    Good job by the writers.

    In case you didn't see next weeks preview, it looks like another episode that takes place in the other universe, so I don't know if the Bellivia storyline will be resolved or even mentioned next week.
    In other Fringe news, I've read that despite Leonard Nimoy's retirement, he will be back for another appearance as William Bell.

    I wish I'd paid more attention to the wording of what he said. I wonder if it was really a reference to him returning, or just a misdirect that was really about Bell returning (as a disembodied ghost living in Olivia)?

    I'm sure Nimoy's returning - I did see an ad featuring him the other day. I'm sure we'll see him return...

    It was totally unrealistic. I would think that Bell would just wander around naked, feeling himself up. Of course, he does seem to want Astrid to milk him.
