Fringe season 3 Entrada Fringe Season 3 Entrada Trailer is Movie Style Epic

Fringe has been struggling in the ratings during it’s third season. The show started out strong with over 9 million viewers tuning in for the pilot and a good portion of season 1, while season 2 fell into 7-6 million range, and recent reports mark the show below 5 million viewers each week. It’s little surprise then that Fox is moving the series to the dreaded Friday night “death slot” starting at the end of January.

Still, despite the bumps in the road I personally find Fringe to be even better than ever in season 3. Instead of continuing to tease us about alternate dimensions and an epic overarching storyline, the Fringe pushed boldly ahead, splitting the season into two parallel storylines running across two parallel dimensions. And who says sci-fi TV is running out of good ideas?

Of course, parallel storylines must intersect at some juncture (I hear they’re like dimensions, that way), and Fringe season 3 is going to literally make worlds collide this Thursday in an episode titled “Entrada”.

The premise is simple: Peter Bishop (boy from the alternate world, now living in our dimension) has discovered that the agent Olivia Dunham he’s been bedding with recently is actually the Dunham from his home alterno-world, sent to our world on for reasons of espionage and sabotage.

Meanwhile, the Dunham from our world, who got trapped on alterno-world and brainwashed into thinking she is alterno-Dunham has regained her memory and figured out how travel back and forth between dimensions. But Walternate (the alterno version of Walter Bishop, Peter’s dad…sort of) has discovered that our Dunham no longer thinks she’s alterno-Dunham and he is taking steps to have her eliminated.

Alterno-Dunham isn't going down without a fight.

OK… so maybe this is not so simple after all…

Bottom line: there is going to be some serious good twin/evil twin drama going down on Fringe this week – drama so epic, in fact, that Fox has sprung for this movie-style trailer to showcase it:

Despite the titillating nature of the trailer, from what I can see, “Entrada” will be more of a stage-setter for the real payoff, rather than being the payoff itself. It would make sense that Fox would market the show hard in the lead-up to the big showdown: If they hook enough viewers in the next few weeks, Fringe could have a nice soft landing into its new Friday night time slot. And that’s something I think most of us sci-fi TV fans would like to see happen.

  1. Great trailer!!! It’s nice to see Fox advertising Fringe!! Hopefully the ratings will increase and give us more of this great show!!!

    I specially loved “The following preview has been approved for all audiences in BOTH universes” :P

  2. I also agree with you Kofi… this last season is the best one yet! They really gave the show new life by following the team on each side solving cases!

    I was just watching last night an episode and realized that when they’ll center on “our universe” the initial credits roll on blue and when they’ll follow the alternateverse the credits roll on red. Very cool touch!

    • really? i did not notice that…

      anyways, i hope this show wont get canceled, its a mix of x-files and CSI… its the x-files of this generation!!! i hope that it goes on for ten plus years (as long as they keep it fresh and new like they did with this season…) have every three seasons completely change pace, like this season they dont tease us with “over there” we actually go there… then in three years, make up a new big twist, like… i dont know, peter is a shapeshifter, and the real one is hidden in a base somewhere (area 51?)… something that makes it entirely new… these guys making this show set the bar higher and higher… and clear it by ten feet everytime!!! LONG LIVE FRINGE!!!
