Fringe Q&A: Does Gene Ever Get Any Lines?
Posted Mar 14, 2012 @ 12:43 AM
I'm a newbie, loving the show, and so glad I found this site. You guys are so perceptive! Thanks for filling me in on things I missed! I do have a question that I haven't seen addressed. William Bell was from the Blue Universe, living in the Red Universe, correct? Where is the William Bell from the Red Universe, then?
Thanks, in advance!

Jessica: "They can operate at hyper-attenuated time. To us, it almost looks like magic. It's not, though. It's just tech that essentially lets them move very, very fast."
ETA: Heh, beat to the draw. Talk about hyper-attenuated time!

Interesting question... I will watch some of those later Season 1 episodes again because I don't remember exactly how the secret of Olivia being a cortexiphan child came to light.

It seems pretty weird to me that he remembers what happened to Peter but he doesn't remember all the time he spent trying to get Olivia to cross over so she could get Peter home (as seen in "Subject 13"), but I guess that's just a case of the writers not knowing what lay ahead of them or not being able to tie later episodes back to the beginning as well as they do at other times.

You know what just popped in my head as an interesting scene that never was? Peter, the one we know and love, going to visit "his" grave. Josh could have knocked a scene like that out of the park. *sigh* Some shows have to scramble to find all kinds of crazy action to fill the time, but Fringe was great because it went deep into emotions and motivations and relationships...so much so that even now there are so many things dug up and exposed but still left waiting to be explored. I guess that's why, months later, I'm still thinking about all these things.

Here's a new question that just popped into my head...How did they manage to find so many cool, graffiti-filled areas for this show? I was just watching The Firefly, and Peter chases September to a place with really neat graffiti at the end. Then there was Olivia's showdown with Shapeshifter!Charlie, the typewriter room, and countless other places. Is there really that much graffiti in Vancouver? I've never been up there. Do you think they were drawn to using graffiti as a background because it has a kind of 'comic book look' to it?
I always marvel at how "pretty" Fringe is. They really always did a great job with the look of the show and the angles of the shots and stuff like that.

Another thing that sort of blew my mind was how Fringe sometimes used green screen (SFX) for stuff that seemed fairly ordinary. For instance, in "6B" when they were at the apartment checking out the balcony that the people fell from, you'd think they were looking out an actual building with double doors to a balcony, right? Nope, it was a set and the view out the doors to the buildings across the street was a green screen.

The Rosencrantz Apartments was a real building, too. It was across the street from a park that was used in multiple location shoots, and the bathroom where Peter kicks the stall door is also in that park. The building was real, but the balconies were cgi. There was another building, right around the corner I think, that was used for some of the Rosencrantz interiors.
I'll try to find some of my photos from the TFE trip - we had great tour guides and went all over Vancouver, saw lots of iconic Fringe locations.
