Critic Reviews for Fringe Season 2

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (8)

One of the great character dramas of contemporary television.

Sep 17, 2009 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The second season picked up that momentum and ran with it, letting things get stranger even as answers to earlier questions were doled out.

Jun 19, 2018 | Full Review…

Overall I enjoyed this season premiere and am looking forward to upcoming episodes.

May 24, 2018 | Full Review…

It's true that Fringe suffered from a bit of a sophomore slump, but it seems like the show runners got their mojo back just in time to go out with a bang.

May 24, 2018 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

I don't find myself invested in these characters, their stories, or this world (or these worlds, rather).

May 24, 2018 | Full Review…

Fringe needs to step up a gear, and stop with the X-Files emulation, I'd suggest.

May 24, 2018 | Full Review…

Every time you start to think Fringe is slipping into a familiar rut or treading ground we've seen before, the creative team pulls out a new twist or character angle that makes it all fresh again.

May 24, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

The show has learned to mix humor, drama, action and creep-outs.

Top Critic

As the season progresses, it is very possible that Fringe will find its footing.

Sep 17, 2009 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

For those of us who can't be bothered to decipher the mumbo jumbo, let alone take it seriously, there is diversion enough in each episode's discrete inner story, which doesn't require a mental decoder ring.
