Over the summer my husband and I found a television series called Fringe on Netflix.  There are five seasons in total, and there are over twenty episodes per season.  We started watching the series and soon found ourselves addicted, which is not something I can say we’ve ever done before.  We watched the show almost every night until we reached the end.

It’s a science fiction show, and they take the impossible and make it possible, which gives way to chaos.  I don’t want to say too much.  I read a review of the show before I began to watch it, and the review gave away a detail that I wish I had not known.  It would have been better to figure it out on my own.  If I don’t give you any details, the first two seasons will be better for you.

I can say that since watching the show, I’ve seen others typing about it on Facebook.  It seems my husband and I weren’t the only people addicted to it over the summer.

The first two seasons are fun and interesting, but the third and fourth season get a little deeper and suspenseful.  The fifth season is nothing like the others.  It’s much darker and intense, and I wonder if they had a different set of writers or director.  In the end, you’ll love the characters and feel for all they go through, which is a LOT.

As for my rating of the show, there is a lot of gross and bloody, scientific scenes, but I wouldn’t call it gory.  There’s only a couple of sexual scenes, and I considered them mild.  The scientist in the show does have a struggle with his belief in God, and if you are a Christian, there are some moments where you’ll cringe at what he says.  However, his comments are balanced out in his later self.  Although it is a scientific show and there is a struggle with science and God, the writers seemed to try to balance faith with science, which I found surprising.

I highly recommend this show.  You can watch it instantly if you have Netflix, and Prime members can watch it for free on Amazon.  I also noticed there are some books on Amazon that seem to be an addition to the television show.  I think they were written for the fans after the show began.  I doubt I will be reading them.  I have a large stack of books I need to read from my author friends.  It will be a while before I buy other books to read.
