so, fringe. anybody watch the season premier? don't worry, i'll totally ruin it for you.
because that season premier just may have ruined the show for me.
seriously? shape shifters? isn't that a little too sci-fi channel? okay, whatever. but what about the shape shifter shifting so quickly into charlie and then magically getting rid of the body and stripping it of its clothing and producing the body of the nurse? and what about the fact that when shot directly in the back, the shape shifter didn't even flinch, but kept running with obvious super human strength? or the fact that the shape shifter has super human strength and yet was working really hard on choking olivia dunham? and it didn't even work.
