Into the Looking Glass: Exploring the Worlds of Fringe Book Review
About the Book: A holistic approach to television criticism, this analytical companion to the popular show Fringe examines the drama’s mythology and unveils its mysteries while exposing significant cultural issues addressed in each episode. With a strong basis in science fiction, Fringe has all of the archetypal characters and themes of the genre, from the covert mastermind and the mad scientist to dangerous advances in technology, parallel worlds, and man-made monsters. This guide explores how the show uses these elements to tap into a deeper understanding of the human experience. Less focused on individual episodes, this book is split into three parts, each discussing a broad element of the narrative experience of the first three seasons of this multilayered show.
Our Take: Fringe is one of the best network TV shows in ages. The show follows a special division of the FBI that explores supernatural and bizarre events in the world. The show explores the themes of father-son bonds, romance, time travel and ethical scientific responsibility. The show is now airing its fourth season and things have really gone haywire with a THIRD reality where Peter Bishop, THE main character of the show, no longer exists! This book, Into the Looking Glass, is a wonderful companion to the show and a great read for any fan. If you can't get enough of Olivia, Walter and Peter then this is a great way to stay engrossed in their world. The book explores the characters and all the major themes of the show flawlessly and in a language that is intelligent, but accessible. We highly recommend it. OH, and watch Fringe on Fox. If you don't, you suck! That is all.
