Fringe 2×05 “Dream Logic”: Reactions from a First Time Viewer

Whatever happened to the bar the season 2 premiere established? The episodes following the premiere have been good but haven’t regained the amazingness that was Olivia being catapulted through the windshield of her car. (That stunt should have received an Emmy.) Episode 5 had some great moments though. Let’s recap: Polivia in college sweatshirts, Polivia working on a case, and oh yeah, Polivia being ADORABLE. big grin They are perfect for each other. day dreaming So I don’t sound like an obsessed Polivia fan, let’s recap Walter’s scenes. They were hysterical! It’s amazing how versatile the character is in one episode. He goes from being vulnerable in the Seattle hospital and breaking my heart to making me roll on the floor in laughter as he experiments with his “non-student.” Great work writers and John Noble!!

  1. “Military prosecutor” was a goof. The pilot established Olivia as a “special investigator” in the Marine Corps.

  2. Don’t worry Mary, the Polivia obsession is only going to get worse as you see this all-star couple grow closer and closer! But it’s okay because you are in good company as I have never loved a TV couple more than these two (except maybe Sawyer and Juliet on LOST) LOL!! Anyway I’ve actually nerer loved a TV show more than Fringe either!!!

    Really Mary it just gets better and better! #HurryUpMary

  3. Mary, enjoy the pace of these episodes because in a few more episodes….it’s about to build, big time!

    DIDN’T ANYONE ELSE NOTICE THAT KASHNER = SUBWAY FROM THAT COMMUNITY EPISODE? I just rewatched this episode recently and I got such a kick out of the fact that both Britta and Subway have guest-starred on Fringe.
    The first half of s2 consists mostly of standalones. But then it gets fantastic by the end. The last couple of episodes enough are alone to raise the s2 grade from, say, B+ to A-, imo.
