It took me a few seconds to remember where I had seen John Noble before Fringe and then it hit me..Return of the King!

I love Walter!

He's a genius, really. I like the fact that he did unimaginable things and that now he looks incredibly candid about it. But I think he knows/remember more that he agrees to admit: remember that scene at the end of Bad Dreams? *ponders*

Anyway, John Noble is amazing portraying the role. He gives the character all the depth he deserves and that is awesome to watch... XD

He's one of the reasons why I love watching this show. He portrays his character so effortlessly, making him believable. Love the character's eccentricities! Eating whilst conducting an autopsy for instance, don't know half the time if what is in the lab is a meal or an experiment! Little throw away comments and totally off the wall yet plausible observations. He's a real joy to watch, and you can see that John Noble is really enjoying himself playing Walter Bishop. :)

I think he almost confessed to that in an episode before (can't remember which one cos I've watched all 25 episodes in 5 days LOL) when he said he'd lost something very special and done something terrible as a result, then they got interrupted.

Walter is my favourite character though.

I have to say Walter is one of my favorite characters in any of the shows i watch! Last episode i couldn't stop laughing when he called the paramedics lunatics for putting the body in what he perceived to be the wrong way in the ambulance. :DD

Seriously love him lol, his character is developed so well and portrayed by John Noble like a pro.

I have to admit he's the main reason I watch Fringe. There just aren't enough mad scientists on tv.

Couldn't agree more!

I tried explaining all about Fringe to a friend of mine and the only short way I could come up with the describe him was a wonderfully wacky genius. I think it about sums him up! :lol:

He's just like a kid in so many ways, and John Noble plays it fantastically well. More Walter please, he never fails to make me laugh every single episode! :D

Oh, Walter Bishop is my favorite character on TV at the moment. So amusing.

Is it just me or does he remind anyone else of the Professor Farnsworth?

Dr. Bishop is indeed the more interesting of characters. His mind can go from brilliant discoveries to quirky wants in a heart beat. I think that he seems to be someone who I admire for his genius and yet at the same time I have this strong desire to watch over him. And with his past what it is, he is indeed a very complex character I can't help but love to watch.

Walter is the main reason I watch this show. He's insane and brilliant, funny and chilling. John Noble is doing a fabulous job.

I bought the first season two weeks ago and I have been re-watching it. The way he keeps hinting about things about Peter and what will happen in the next two seasons is just amazing. His acting and all he does is so cool.

So glad we'll be seeing more Noble/Walter next year! And even more so to the obvious Walter vs Walternate scene, cannot wait to see that

Walter is the only thing that kept me watching this show during those rather unimpressive season 1 episodes. The character is brilliantly written. A little like Grant Jansky from Traders. Very lovable and quirky genius.

John Noble is a fabulous actor. I honestly don't think they could have cast anyone better for the role. But what's up with his eye? I tried looking up that shiny eye thing on the net, but couldn't really find anything other than it's the result of cataracts surgery.

When I waited tables in Oyster Bay, I had a customer whose eye glimmered the same way. I wanted to ask him what was up with it, but thought it a bit of a rude question. Plus he was a good tipper, and I really didn't want to screw that up.

It draws my attention to it every time the light catches it, then I can't think about anything else.

I thgink that is actually a contact in his eye. if you look at both of his eyes, the color is just a littler different. At least that is what I think it is for Mr. Noble.
