FOX Source have released a short interview with John Noble. He talks about his experience working on this season’s episodes and the developing dynamics between the characters. The interview is at least a few weeks old (presumably held back for the Lowatus), so some of the context is lost, but it’s still worth a look. Continue past the jump to watch the video.
As initially reported by the FutonCritic, FOX will be putting Fringe on a seven week hiatus from February. The mid-season schedule sees the Fringe “winter finale” air Feb. 4th with the remaining 7 episodes returning from April 1st (not an April Fools!). FOX newbie “Past Life“ is taking over the Thursday slot for 6 episodes from Feb. 11th. Good luck Past Life, you’ll need it!
There are probably two main points of contention amongst Fringies – first, we have the show taking an enormous break, denting whatever continuity the story has – not to mention giving the “all-important” casual viewers more time to forget which one Olivia is (really). And upon its return, Fringe will go straight back into the hazardous Thursday slot to once again slog it out with heavyweights like Greys and Office. Ouch!
JJ. Abrams is a busy man. Not only is he set to produce the next Mission Impossible movie, but he has a new Spy series in the works and a Superman movie has been rumoured. In fact there must be more than one JJ. Abrams, that’s the only logical explanation for how he seems to get so much done! Speaking of twos, JJ. Abrams talks exclusively to Tribune Interactive about the alternate reality storyline that has helped make Fringe “sexier” and more “confident” in season 2. Whilst I have a few problems with the ‘standalone’ element of the show it’s difficult to argue with JJ.’s assessment.
