Have you been interested in Fox’s hit-show Fringe, but missed so many episodes that you feel lost in series’ tortuous plot? Or, like me, have you tuned in from the beginning but are still unable to comprehend what’s actually going on?

Either way, you’re in luck as Fox has set up “Fringe 101” to help get you up to speed”

Before FRINGE returns with eight all-new episodes on Thursday, April 1, visit FRINGE 101 to view:

  • Four must-see FRINGE episodes (streaming for free)
  • Videos recapping the series with cast interviews and show footage
  • Special video “10 Things You Need to Know About FRINGE”
  • Character descriptions, secrets and spoilers

Fox has recently come under fire for putting the show on a two-month hiatus in February, following a previous month-long hiatus in December. With the network’s track record for ceremoniously “dumping” sci-fi programming, the numerous delays had fans believing that the show’s cancellation was all but confirmed.

However, the recent announcement of Fringe being picked up for a third season, combined with the new “Fringe 101″ crib sheet, proves that not only is Fox committed to the series, but that they’re actively trying make the show (which has an extensive mythology) accessible to new viewers.

In case you’re wondering what the “10 things you need to know about Fringe” are, check out the video below.

Unfortunately, they left out one of the most important things: above all else, you need to know what’s actually going on. Despite tuning in from the beginning, I’m just now feeling like I understand what this entire series is about – Although, I’m sure that as the season progresses, I will need to amend that statement.

As Fox states, new cases and endless impossibilities begin when Fringe returns Thursday, April 1.

  1. I'm very excited about “Fringe” returning. I am very surprised at the level of committment FOX has shown to the sci-fi show. What I would love to see would be a “Fringe” in 8 Minutes. “They” did two that I know of for the last seasons of “Battlestar Galactica” and “LOST.” They're hilarious! But since “Fringe” has only been on two seasons they could only need three to four minutes. :)

  2. Aww, crap. I knew I shouldn't have watched that before I caught up on my DVR episodes! ARRGH!

  3. I love Fringe, but I have not seen all the episodes. It's hard when you wan tot catch up on what's needed to know but you don't want to know anyspoilers from the past since I want to watch them first. I can't wait for the show to be back, though, it looks so intriging. I really wan to know what the heck happened to Peter and is taking Peter from the alt. universe the reason the pattern is happening?

  4. When Fringe returns next week, you'll see all that plus much more. I don't want to ruin anything, but John Noble can really pull off a young Walter Bishop (as you can see in the last photo).

  5. im so excited to watch the new episodes and i actually have been able to follow the plot :) this and supernatural are the only shows we watch as a family.

  6. You are far superior. ;-)

    While many questions will be answered, it would be worth tuning in just to see the 80's version of the Fringe intro they created especially for this episode.

  7. We're currently at the early stages of Season 2 here in Australia but “Fringe” & “Burn Notice” are two shows my wife and I tune into regularly. This show keeps getting better and better.

    Was pleasantly surprised to find out Anna Torv & John Noble are Aussies. Full accolades to them. :-)

  8. It's about time. I think this year has had more hiatus even with other shows like Supernatural, Smallville, etc., because of the Winter Olympics. Had no choice but to watch the olympics because nothing else was on. Also noticed when it's close to Spring Break, usually in March, they show a bunch of re-runs also.

    Back to the subject. I've watched every episode so far of Fringe and this season explained more things. I don't think this episode coming up is necessary for those who have been following it and understand the storyline so far. For those who are just catching it, it might help. Great show BTW
