I think the voter names show up after the poll is closed.
Before the ballot stuffing, voting volume was typical. If there are 8000 members, then only about 1% vote. The median rating of recent epis was an 8 ("very good"), and as of yesterday when I looked, this epi was a 6, "just ok." The stuffed ballot improved that by one point, but it's still a lower rating than usual.
I know people are worried about the show status, but every time I read the "C" word, I wonder why not say something positive, instead of putting negative thoughts in everyone's minds. If I'd never watched Fringe, I wouldn't be tempted to watch a show when fans keep mentioning cancellation.
People forget that the rating scale used here is relative, it's a comparison of best Fringe epi to worst Fringe epi. They can't all be best, unless the writing unerringly improves with each epi. With a dozen different writers pairing up in various combinations, and half a dozen different producers, there is bound to be variation in writing style. I am sensitive to speech patterns, and something was drawing attention away from my enjoyment of my favorite alt characters.
I love the alt world surprises and the alt world characters, but his week I didn't like them at all, much of it seemed out of character. If I'd been completely honest, I would have rated it a 1, it was the worst Fringe epi in recent memory, but I rated it a 2, "that was terrible" as that was my response to the dialogue -- throughout this episode. I noticed that Wiki identifies the writers of each epi, and I'm going to start paying more attention. The disconnect in speaking style this week was a distraction, and what endeared me to these characters (whether good or deliciously evil) was missing.
7 - From Me
The Episode was great, I was still shocked by the whole Baby Storyline, but I'm glad they are not going to be jamming it down our throats the whole time.
I have faith in the Writers and the only reason it doesn't get any Higher is I need my Crazy Walter Fix each Episode. And I don't like Charlie, never have, never will.
Rookie Sig Maker here!
Just a 6 from me, positives I liked Charlie and the bug woman, even though when I see altcharlie it makes me sad they killed this sides character off. Walternate showing us even he draws the line once in a while. Also was nice seeing Walternate in a liaison with an attractive younger woman, About time Noble got some loving.
Negatives I found the case dull and the baby idea is too damned soapy for a sci-fi.
ohh and in response to the fan saying 'Argent Farnsworth's personality is pretty shallow on the other side' that's actually intended as she suffers Asperger's syndrome.
