HASH(0x9987b054) étoiles sur 5 Reading with Tequila 14 septembre 2011
Par Jennifer Sicurella - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Immediately after reading Fringe Science I had an almost undeniable urge to re-watch the TV series it is based upon. That's a of a fantastic pop culture book. Having read many essays about varying aspects of the show, all I wanted to do was dive back into that world.

Fringe has a lot going on - on many levels. No matter if an episode if focusing on the past, the present, interpersonal relationships or the alternate universe, science always comes into play. Even in the most outlandish of episodes is based in scientific possibility if not probability. Fringe Science looks deeper at the science involved in the show and though multiple essays examines aspects of the show.

I love when books like this manage to educate through pop culture. Taking a closer look at Fringe using examples and scenes from the show, the essayists teach the reader about science fiction as a genre, diseases, memory and the possibility of time travel among other topics. My one complaint is about the essay entitled "Parallel Universes." Unlike the rest of the essays in Fringe Science, Parallel Universes was all science, devoid of even the slightest Fringe reference. While any fan of the show can read this essay and tie it to the show in their own way, the essays are more entertaining and effective when we know exactly how the author is relating the topic.

Some complicated concepts are discussed in the book, but unscientific readers won't be lost. For the most part, ideas and theories are explained clearly and fully, on a basic level. Not only will the book educate the reader about some less often discussed scientific theories, but it will also help fans better understand the possibilities of certain fringe events when viewing the show. Fringe Science is wonderful and a must read for any Fringe fan.

The book is extremely interesting. It reveals all hidden sences of the TV show. While reading it, one begins to understand the world of Fringe and the world around us better. "Fringe science" sets you thinking. It is absolutely worth reading.

HASH(0x996e9168) étoiles sur 5 Explains the Science of FRINGE 29 septembre 2012
Par Nicholas Vela - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
My only problem was that the "Parallel Universes" paper was to scientific, and had almost nothing to do with FRINGE (Come on, how do you forget the RedVerse?). However, the rest of this book is downright amazing, and delves deeply into the show. I recommend this book for any and ALL FRINGE FANS

HASH(0x99364810) étoiles sur 5 Since we can't watch more episodes, I guess we'll have to read. 2 mai 2013
Par PAUL MCNEIL - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
There is a big, Walter Bishop-sized hole in my life where Fringe used to be. It was my weekly dose of crazy sci-fi glued together with a gripping cross-dimensional family drama, the kind of show that often veered into melodrama, and usually pulled it off. Part of the fun, of course, was the freak of the week approach to "fringe" science, which often involved the kind of "what if" scenarios that take some scientific idea and took it to an entertaining, if scientifically ridiculous, direction. At its best, these scientific extrapolations tied in with the show's overarching themes, on top of allowing for a lot of mind-bending, genetically modified fun*.

For those who like to go a step farther and see just where the science meets the fringe, Fringe Science: Parallel Universes, White Tulips, and Mad Scientists offers up some good reads. This collection of essays on Fringe range in theme from the Golden Age sci fi roots and the TV antecedents of the show to the physics of parallel universes, the progress of neurotechnology, and Walter's psychedelic proclivities. The essays range from light-hearted to somewhat heady, such as Max Tegmark's "Parallel Universes," which discusses the theme without any reference to show. There's even a whole essay, entitled "Moo," dedicated to Gene the cow. The best entries here manage to say something about the "real world" and about the show, showing us how the liberties taken with space and time have their purpose, and also how the realities behind these ideas may be less spectacular yet remain just as world-changing. The book, like the show, reminds us that we live in a world where the impossible keeps being challenged.

Reading it now, at the end of the series, there are many issues from the final two seasons, which take very different directions from the first three while also continuing and revisiting the cases and ideas from before, which are not discussed (the book was published in 2011). The wide range of topics may also mean that some essays will be more engaging than others, but with titles like "Fringe Double Blinded Me With Science" and "Of White Tulips and Wormholes," I definitely enjoyed myself.

I enjoy the show immensely, and this book gives the parallels to the sci-fi influences. I've also discovered a wealth of sic-fi authors to read!!
