I’m a pretty big fan of the TV show Fringe. The idea of alternate universes was introduced in the first season but it wasn’t until late last season that the RED universe fully entrenched itself into the mythology of the show. I really like the Red Verse story lines as they give a unique take on the world we all love and know. In the Spirit of Valentine’s day falling this week I’d like to run down a few random things that I really LOVE about the Fringe Red Verse. Just a note that I do not claim ownership to any of the images you see in this post:
Scarlie – In our world, Charlie fell victim to an intricate plot involving shape shifters that I don’t have nearly enough time to explain. In the Red Verse Charlie is alive and well and pretty bad ass.
Airships – Public transit includes the option of traveling by helium filled air ships. How rad would it be to take a Zeppelin instead of a train while traveling?
Eric Stoltz wasn’t replaced by Michael J. Fox – Originally Eric Stoltz was hired to play Marty McFly in Back to the Future. Everyone involved including Stoltz felt he was miscast and, as we all know, Michael J. Fox (fellow Canuckistanian) was hired to fill the roll. Can you imagine Marty as a redhead? If you check Youtube there are some early scenes of Stoltz as McFly to view.
Cool DC Universe Titles – Some well know titles with a slight twist. The adventures of Red Lantern & Red Arrow would be very righteous!
Twin Towers – This was the final scene of the last episode of season one. We got to see just how different what would be come the Red Universe is from ours. I got goosebumps the first time I saw this.
Glatterflug – Daily Flights to the Moon. Just sayin!
Hot Redheads! Fauxlivia is far superior to her “our world” Doppelganger and Bug Girl is too cute for words.
That is all I have for now, please feel free to comment, I’d love to hear from other Fringe fans.
