The upside is, the show has nowhere to go but up.  Once you have "worst episode ever" under your belt, you can just move on.

Seriously though?  Flying human-porcupine hybrids?  Seriously?

And if I hadn't become seriously ambivalent already the last few episodes as far as Peter/Olivia went, having Lincoln tell Peter that Olivia looks at him with googly eyes all the time might have done it.

ETA: And they get Alessandro Juliani on the show and utterly waste him in a one minute scene that goes nowhere.  Good idea.  (True confession: I don't really care about Lincoln all that much and I don't think Seth Gabel is all that great - everything he does is fairly one-note as far as I'm concerned, and he's not my kind of cute (COME AT ME FRINGE FANDOM) - and I just had the thought what if AJ was Lincoln oh God it would be completely amazing.  But alas.  No.)

And also I've come to the conclusion that this season is stupid and doesn't make sense.

I sort of cringed when those porcupine things started flying; they looked terrible to begin with, but then having them spout wings, wtf show.

I also really don't care about Lincoln. (Okay, okay sometimes I actively dislike him. A lot.) So I never feel bad when he's sad and sometimes I laugh when he has his stupid puppy dog eyes at Olivia. And I uh, wouldn't mind if he died. (Also I don't find him attractive either, bleh).

Seriously the most exciting part of this episode for me was seeing Alessandro Juliani. (If he were playing Lincoln holy shit then I would be so happy!)

Yeah, the CGI this episode was pretty rough.

Also, I still just can't get around human/porcupine hybrids. Like, that's the next step in evolution? Really?

Oh God let me tell you about how excited I am that someone else doesn't care about Lincoln. I always feel like such an outsider! But seriously, he is just such a cipher of a character for me. I liked him okay in Altverse, but here? Just blah, and so much of his character is predicated on him being all googly for Olivia. And whatever. Don't even care.

Okay. I now feel more comfortable expressing my serious hate of Lincoln. Like I know a lot of people like him and that's fine. But personally, I sort of hate him. I see no point to him and a lot of the time I just feel like Astrid would be better used in his place. Especially on our-side. He didn't bug me as much in the altverse but over here he is just so pointless and boring and I could completely be happy without him. And I will stop my ranting about him now, but no dear, you are not alone at all in your Lincoln apathy.

Yes. He takes away what could be great Astrid time each episode, that's the major thing. It's like, isn't that why they got rid of Charlie? Because he had nothing really different to contribute? And I liked Charlie a hell of a lot more than I like Lincoln. I think making Seth a regular and sticking him on Ourverse was total fan pandering, because everyone was like "OMG Lincoln Lee!" last season.

I'd love once for a show to not just at the opportunity to do love triangle shit. It's so overdone and uninteresting, and of all shows, Fringe doesn't need to mess with that. When Peter was like "I guess we need to talk about Olivia" I literally groaned out loud. Yes, let's talk about Olivia like she's a prize to be divvied up between you two. Barffffff.
