Welcome Back Fringe - No Spoilers

After a brief hiatus (and thankfully a renewal from FOX for Season Three), Fringe returned with a new episode last night. The episode (titled Peter) explained the back story of Walter and Peter Bishop and their adventures in the alternate universe. We got a lot of detail and answered several lingering questions (including what the hell happened to Nina Sharp's hand). I won't get into the specifics right now in case people still have it on their DVR (and if you don't have Fringe taping on your DVR there's something wrong with you).

The bottom line is that Fringe is powering along as good as ever in Season Two. This was the best episode of the season in my opinion and I've eagerly looking forward to the remaining 7 or 8 episodes. Unfortunately I can't say the same for Lost (JJ's other show). I'm so over Lost and ready for it to end. This season has been terrible as it's become painfully obvious that the writers were indeed making up the show as they went along season-to-season.

Since "Peter" was set mostly in flashbacks in the '80s, the brilliant writers of the show decided to whip up an "80's themed" intro sequence complete with classic bleepy/bloopy arcade music. Here it is below. This kicks so much ass!

NOTE: Heading to Puerto Rico for my friend's wedding tonight. It will be good to get away for a few days. Josh cried this morning when I left and didn't want me to go. I haven't been on a long trip away from him in about a year so I can understand his uneasiness. Puerto Rico has Sprint service so I'll be checking in on the kids periodically over Easter weekend. My in-laws will be in town while I'm gone to help man the ship.
