    It seems every TV series does something like this.

    Though, I find the old 1960s style with all the laptops/computers/cellphones kinda interesting. Plus a tiny bit of near-steampunk...

    I found it a fun hour. The singing corpses were hilarious. But I expect it to go over like the "Bones" season finale did last year.

    I haven't watched this episode yet, but I was wondering: is everybody else's "Fringe" recordings marked as being reruns? At least the last 4 episodes have all had an "R" for rerun in the guide info. I have no idea why.

    This wasn't bad per se, but it was a huge waste of an opportunity. For a musical there was barely any singing. This could have been a nice attempt to do more humor but the entire episode came off as stiff and misguided. A real shame since I'm a huge fan of the show normally.

    Anyone notice that Astrid was singing lyrics from A Chorus Line ('I really need this job...' from I Hope I Get It')?

    And I had a blast, I thought it was quite fun, very well done, and over way too quickly. Easily one of my top 5 Fringe episodes.
    I loved the juxtaposition of the technology in the fairy tale, and Ella "fixing" the end of the story. Not to mention all the combo scifi-noir tidbits.

    Different strokes, different folks, etc.

    I didn't really care much for this episode because it really didn't do anything to advance the story line. Reminded me of what Supernatural has started doing every three or four episodes. Hopefully Fringe will be back in full force next week.

    I'm in the same camp. I liked this episode a lot. It was a fun mash-up of everything, and even more impressive, it kept thematic continuity with the current episode storyline. One understands just exactly what's going on in Walter's head when he's spinning this story.

    Not everything has to advance a storyline. It's nice to have breaks every now and then and just have fun. Plus, judging from the previews, it's going to be an intense three episode run to the season finale.

    I thought it was okay. It was pretty much a quirky way for Walter to show how he feels about the current situation.

    He sees himself as the monster and Peter as not only one of his victims, but the person he has hurt the most. We also see a fantasy of his where Olivia and Peter fall in love, unfortunately he doesn't see himself as part of their future even though he desperately wants to be.

    The last few episode have been very centered around Walter. I think the next few episodes will revolve around Peter as he tries to grasp the idea that he's not from this world. and he has other parents that may still be alive in the other universe. If Walternate is the villain, things may get awkward for Peter.

    I liked it. Lots of fun!

    What was that painted on the cow? Was that twister?

    It was definitely big colored dots!

    I also got a kick from immediately recognizing the album Walter was holding near the beginning of the story--Traffic's "The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys". I just *knew* all those years I wasted listening to music would pay off some day! :D Not sure who was singing though; definitely not Traffic.

    I think this was the best 'filler' episode of TV I've ever seen!

    I expected a lot more singing. If you're going to do a musical, do a musical.

    The one thing I didn't like was cell phones and computers in a 40s noir setting. I did like all the hats tilted to the side.

    Loved it! But, I love most musicals. :)

    I thoroughly enjoyed the mashup of it all. And, Ella "fixing" the story - just loved it.
