April 1st isn’t just April Fools Day, it’s also the day that Fringe returns to our screens! To help build momentum, FOX has released a slightly different promo for the first episode back from the Lowatus. Head past the jump to watch it with your eyeballs.
Nothing too different from the other “Peter” promos, but you know, I’m cool with that! The worst thing about this long break isn’t the fact that we have to wait for the show return, in my opinion, it’s that too much gets revealed about the next episode, either by the network, or by spoiler hounds.
I’m pumped for “Peter” (erm, so to speak), but I don’t want to know plot reveals before the episode has had a chance to air. It’s a fine line, but I’ve seen other networks fail in the act of building anticipation and hype without revealing too much information so that it actually ruins the episode when it finally does come along. Hopefully FOX wont fall into this trap. Which brings me to my next point..
A heads-up to those of you who don’t want to have crucial plot-reveals spoiled a month ahead of the show’s return might want to be careful whilst surfing the net. Unfortunately some bright spark has posted a “sneak peek” which is more like a “ruiner” in my eyes (just watching the first 10 seconds has certainly ruined a portion of the episode for me). If the video turns out to be FOX approved then I’ll be very disappointed, as that’s no way to treat your show – especially a mystery show like Fringe, which depends on it’s revelations. I’m not going to post the clip here as like I said I think it’s reveals way too much. I think it crosses the line when you have a 2 minute 30 second clip featuring one of the most integral moments in Fringe mythology, one month ahead of the episode airing. *Slow clap* to who ever was behind that idea.
Now I’m off to put my eyeballs in deep freeze until April 1st. Not sure how I’m gonna blog in the meantime. Although I hear telepathy is all the rage.
Fringe returns with brand new episodes from April 1st on FOX.
