Halloween on Sahar’s Blog: Fans’ Real Love for The X-Files, Fringe, and Supernatural

Let’s be honest: while fans love the scare factor in The X-Files, the real reason that they keep coming has nothing to do with the paranormal.  The keep coming for the same two reasons fans of Fringe and Supernatural return: the relationship between the main characters and the deeper concepts each show touches on.

Book Review: Fringe Science: Parallel Universes, White Tulips, and Mad Scientists, edited by Kevin Grazier

From Sahar’s Reviews’ Vault During seasonal breaks, fans of shows can be seen doing many things to get over the emptiness of their weekly television slot.  And while many fans hate them, I for one love hiatuses because they give me a chance to touch base with fellow fans to discuss in more depth than… Read More Book Review: Fringe Science: Parallel Universes, White Tulips, and Mad Scientists, edited by Kevin Grazier

TV Review: Fringe, Season 5, Episode 9: Black Blotter

Fellow Fringe fan and my dear friend Monica was right; reviewing this episode was quite the trippy experience, for lack of a better word. Most of this episode was enhanced by Walter taking LSD giving this exploration of his guilt and fears a very unique taste typical of this sort of ‘special’ episode Fringe is… Read More TV Review: Fringe, Season 5, Episode 9: Black Blotter

TV Review: Fringe, Season 5, Episode 10: Anomaly XB-6783746

More frustrating than looking for the pieces of a puzzle is having the pieces and not knowing what to do with them. This pretty much sums up the 10th episode of the fifth and final season of Fringe, as the team, having found the child Observer now known as Michael, tries to figure out how… Read More TV Review: Fringe, Season 5, Episode 10: Anomaly XB-6783746

TV Review: Fringe, Season 5, Episode 11: The Boy Must Live

One of the benefits of having only one last, shortened season is that a lot is condensed. Unlike Season 2 when for example, the storyline about Peter’s his true origin stretched out for four incredibly stressful episodes. That story began with Olivia seeing  him glimmer, and ended with Peter, figuring it all out. In this… Read More TV Review: Fringe, Season 5, Episode 11: The Boy Must Live

TV Review: Fringe, Season 3, Episode 15: Subject 13 – Part II

Although we have long ago guessed it and even described it (sometimes at length…), it’s interesting to finally see how Walter’s guilt developed and where it stemmed from. By the same token, it’s interesting to see where Walternate’s current determination and drive stem from. While Season 2’s episode “Peter” showed Walter’s real intentions – i.e.… Read More TV Review: Fringe, Season 3, Episode 15: Subject 13 – Part II

TV Review: Fringe, Season 3, Episode 16: Os – Part III

While it doesn’t answer any question about the overarching mythology, I still loved the case that drove the Fringe episode “Os”. From the amazing opening scene to the climatic confrontation in the prison cell between father and son, it reeked of the human element that makes the series fantastic. The opening scene is brilliant; the way… Read More TV Review: Fringe, Season 3, Episode 16: Os – Part III

TV Review: Fringe, Season 3, Episode 16: Os – Part II

In the first part of this review, I touched on Walter’s current state of mind, how he is coming apart at the seams and how he is choosing to blame it on Bell’s absence and the surgical removal of his brain tissue rather than to look at all the resources he has at hand, namely,… Read More TV Review: Fringe, Season 3, Episode 16: Os – Part II

TV Review: Fringe, Season 3, Episode 17: Os – Part I

While this episode in itself was one of those Fringe episode that future fans of the show, in a hurry to find out what is going to happen at the end of Season 3, might be told to skip, I found it fascinating because of the oft mentioned storytelling prouesse of the production team. The… Read More TV Review: Fringe, Season 3, Episode 17: Os – Part I

TV Review: Fringe, Season 3, Episode 18: Bloodline – Part I

The third explosive season of Fringe continues and, because of the vagaries of life, I am quite behind on the show. Others are ranting and raving about the season finale, and I am only at episode 18. On the one hand, I am dying to know what is going to happen and what everyone has… Read More TV Review: Fringe, Season 3, Episode 18: Bloodline – Part I
