These are quotes from Joshua Jackson and Jeff Pinkner (he was the show runner at the time) that explain the "Unearthed" episode: Joshua Jackson: [The network] only had 22 airdates for our show this year, but they ordered 23 episodes... It's just an accounting issue. Jeff Pinkner: It's a stand-alone [episode]... Since it's supposed to be a ...

There can be a number of theories but I think the primary one is because it would have few viewers, certainly not enough to make the show profitable. TV shows are a conveyance for advertising - it is meant to be a profit center, and cannot be just ART. Ideally every television show's advertisers want millions of viewers each week, something that is difficult ...

You can possibly rectify this with string theory by extrapolating that these two universes are already converging, making it easier to cross between them as opposed to other universes. This would also explain why they both have so many similarities like the fact that human life exists on a planet with identical composition and that many of the people have ...

Any more and we'd either be watching sliders (with them unable to get home and constantly moving) or stargate (inevitable hostile universes trying to invade).. The story simply demands only 2...

This is called a recap sequence, as opposed to having a cold open like many TV sitcoms. I would argue there are a few reasons for doing this. Television shows are complicated. They are particularly complicated nowadays. Think of the complexity of shows like Lost, Battlestar Galactica, Fringe - unless a user is completely avid and is watching the episodes on ...

Well it entirely depends on which theory of the "multiverse" is adopted. They are not all the same and/or implemented the same way. You might want to give the different theories a read to better understand how it is represented based on point of view: The structure of the multiverse, the nature of each universe within it and the relationship between ...

As I remember, I think that their reasoning came from the fact that those two universes were the closest. Those were the two overlapping. To get to a farther universe would be theoretically and fictionally, impossible

Actually, my opinion is a bit anthropic; it's how it is because this is how it happened. Walter opened a door between two universes. Most doors only go to two places. Thus, these two universes are linked because of the door. One could try to make another door go to another universe, but they never try that; they are pretty much focused on the universe that ...

Walter & September's plan was to effectively change the future so that the Observers/Invaders never exist Not quite though. Michael is still genetically advanced with mental functions well above any human, however unlike the Observers, he still has emotion too, as September reveals in The Boy Must Live: He is an anomaly, but he's not less than ...

Short answer: Because erasing all of the character relationships would have been a terrible and disappointing end to the series. Long answer: Time loops work like that. If the Observers didn't exist, the Observer would never have come into the past and saved red Peter, the kid would never have gotten sent to the right point in time and Observers would have ...

Found One!Yes, there was a further mention of redistribution of mass, which I've just re-encountered by watching further into the following season. Season 2 ended with Olivia trapped on the other side because of collusion between alt-Olivia and Walternate. They knew Olivia, Walter, and Peter would escape the alternate universe to return home, so they ...

The "disk" episode investigations were very early in the series and demonstrate the growing investigation capabilities of Olivia Dunham. She was "assigned" to the group, and it could be believed that she was a little put out by it. The mere name "Fringe" could have been mocked by her other FBI compatriots before her transfer. Today she is fierce, ...
