Too much to drink, huh?

- No observer story progression. With all the characters being changed, I do really only care about Peters and the observers storyline at the moment. What happened to Peter between the disappearance and coming back, what are the observers real purpose?
- Fidelito's post was ...interesting...but I fully agree with the last statement. Peter shows up, knows a ton about everyone, says something happened to make everyone forget who he is, yet it is as if it's not even an important storyline. It gets a couple 3 minute scenes in the whole hour. He just sits in the FBI office. Now Peter's credibility is even more in doubt with the chance that he's a shapeshifter, which leads to possibly more weeks of him staying locked up. It's fine if no one fully trusts him, but the whole point with him being able to help track down the shapeshifters should have lead to more trust and instead it went the other way limiting what he is going to be able to do in the next few episodes likely.

Dabbling In Fringe Science
I don't really enjoy the new arc on the shape-shifters. To be honest, I'm quite sick of shape shifters and I hope that we can move on to explore more about the time fractures, time slips, observers and most importantly, Peter's disappearance from the time line.
Damn those shape-shifters.
Fringe is beginning to look like: Oh, we've erased peter from the timeline and everybody's memories but he's still there! And there's a whole lot of new problems even after resetting the time line! To me, it seems like there's no difference between erasing Peter and not erasing him so it feels like we're wasting previous episodes on this arc. Anybody thinks so too?
It's just too much now... I find it so hard to digest and follow even though I'm a huge Fringe fan. I also find it less compelling for me to defend Fringe whenever people say shitty shows like Warehouse 13 are much better.

Tuning into the Ghost Network
for me, the only way the shapeshifters will be interesting is if we get Jones back and he is the operator...and really soon.....!!!
The point raised by peter that someone was keeping an eye on their agents, was let go rather quickly by some supposedly bright FBI people I thought...Broyles didn't ask where is the signal going, how can we find out...surely the ringmaster would have been his focus??Does this team have a lower collective IQ? If so, peter is going to have his work cut out for him.
But I do share concerns that the whole thing just feels sluggish, and is being filled out with repetition and exposition...never Fringe flaws in the pat...they have to rescue it really soon....and we need more focus on peter and Walter to bring it alive...the other characters in this univers are dull...dull...dull
I think Broyles was more interested in stopping the shapeshifter they had eyes on and trying to stop it curing itself.

On The Fringe..
Like someone who just appears out of a lake is allowed into fringe division, with access to their computers. Yeah sure.
I said that the show before the break was the last, now I'm sure of it. The ratings are in the tank anyway. It would have been much better if they just cleaned all the loose ends from the first 3 seasons. Knowing well that they are doomed for cancellation.
They are "LOST".
