    Smile Stargate lore used in Fringe tonight! (spoilers for Fringe and greater good)

    Fringe's episode tonight had all sorts of lore that I swear came straight out of Stargate! They had a whole storyline of humans that existed long before we did.. before the dinosaurs even. There were references to Atlantis, the big bang, a code buried in time that was left by the ancients. Peter even dropped the word Destiny.

    They had to go around to different locations to dig up things.. i half expected to see a Stargate on the end of the crane! =D

    I know it's got nothing to do with Stargate per se but needless to say, I ate it up!

    Great episode. I thought of Stargate too. And I also thought
    Spoiler:
    about the observers!!!


    Fringe is kicking all kind of ass plotwise this season!! It's more serialized or mytholized with each episodes presenting a whole compelling story and adding to the overall arcs at the same time.

    Agreed. I'll go into it more when the discussion thread opens up in the Fringe forum. Good fun on the horizon!

    Yeah, it did remind me of Stargate for a moment. Ancients and all that. Also, kinda Lost-y with the numbers, and kinda Alias-y with the guest star guy being that short guy from Alias whose name I've forgotten.

    But most importantly, it was kinda Fringe-y. And I wouldn't have it any other way...

    I noticed these too with all the "First people" references. I think it's possible this was done on purpose, but it could very well just be coincidences.
