    This is like trying to watch HEROS after season 1, hoping they could recapture the flame, only to see them fail. Now Fringe, after a great season 3 is throwing it all away. Makes me appreciate how special Battle Star Galatica was, makes me mad at these producers. Is it true that they brought on a new writing team after season 3?

      They hired David Fury. They brought back J.R Orci (who left after season 1), i dont know whether they hired whole new writing team but their certainly alot of new people, id never heard of the people who wrote wallflower and i hope never to see them pen a fringe episode again.

        Matt Pitts (who co-wrote Wallflower) has been there since Season 2, his first episode was “Olivia. In The Lab. With The Revolver” (co-writer Justin Doble never wrote an episode before, though).
        Ethan Gross, who wrote the last episode, works on Fringe since Season 2.
        Alison Schapker & Monica Owusu-Breen are still writing episodes, just like Robert Chiappetta & Glen Whitman.
        But I really miss Zack Stentz & Ashley Edward Miller. They wrote “Momentum Deferred”, “Grey Matters” and “Jacksonville”, but they obviously left Fringe.

          I too miss Zack Stentz & Ashley Edward Miller, they left to work on movies. But I guy I miss the most is Akiva Goldsman.

            AkivaAkiva Golsman co-wrote the season 4 premiere, Subject 9 (4×04) and the next one, Making Angels (4×11).

            The creative team is still pretty much the same, THEY are responsible for the show’s direction, not a couple of writers.

          Matt Pitts also wrote Concentrate And Ask Again and Ethan Gross, who wrote Forced Perspective, wrote Immortality.

    I imagine this will be actually be a straight mythology episode.

    They can’t reveal too much in the description, but it sounds like Olivia finds out about Nina.

      Hey, Chris. I just finished 410 and from my perspective it seems that something has subtly shifted in the writer’s room. I can’t explain it, but the plots are more solid–indeed it seems like we’re back to season one in the feel of things. Of the characters. They just seem to be more there. Even the set decoration and lighting seem better. Whatever it is, I’m liking it. A LOT. I think the slight uptick in the ratings numbers may bear witness to it.

      I’m sure I don’t have to tell you that you can’t have a good episode, or film with out great music. It’s a make or break kind of thing, but I don’t need to tell you that. Just know that there are people out here who pay attention to it. (Just think about the movie “Lady Hawk” for a minute…eh?)

      Anyway, keep up the good work. I’m sure you’re right about the forthcoming eps.

        I would agree that Season 4 is very similar in its structure to Season 1.

        It seems very much 60% standalones and 40% mythology.

        Whereas Season 3 I would say was 70% mythology and 30% standalone.

        They’re trying to bring back that Season 1 feel to draft in past viewers (evidenced with the return of Mr. Jones).

        I just wish they’d wrap up other loose ends from Season 1 (the Beacon, child Observer, red glass hand-discs, ZFT, etc.)

    Any doubts I had about Season 4’s quality and potential were blown away after I saw the 2nd episode of the season. And the 8th and 9th episodes were just as good if not better. I’m on board for what lies ahead.
