Return to explore the boundaries of a mysterious mythology that holds millions of viewers in its hypnotic grasp. This 6-Disc, 22-Episode Season 2 of Fringe contains worlds (and alternate worlds) of excitement complete with shape shifters, cryonic heads, belly-dwelling beasts and people who turn to ashes before our eyes. But the overarching narrative takes three clandestine FBI agents - Olivia Dunham, Peter Bishop and Walter Bishop - through a mind-bending investigation of a parallel reality that threatens to destroy ours.
A decent second season.

This second season of Fringe is surprisingly good and pretty much takes off from the point season one ended. Without giving away any spoilers, like season one the episodes fluctuate between the storyline which dominated the end of season one and self contained episodic stories. The whole season is fairly consistent in quality with the exception of 'Brown Betty', which is an appalling standalone episode set in the 1930's which features musical numbers from various cast members, which is played under the guise of drug addled Walter telling Olivia’s niece, Ella, a fairy tale while under the influence of a strain of marijuana called Brown Betty. That duff episode aside, this is a decent second season and every bit addictive as the first.
