Explore the ever-shifting line between science Fiction and reality, where hybrid monsters tear through sewers, thieves walk through walls and portals open to parallel universes, in this complete collection of the acclaimed, mind-bending series.
Unable to police a world in which science has advanced beyond our wildest dreams - and nightmares - Special Agent Olivia Dunham enlists eccentric 'fringe' scientist Walter Bishop and his jack- of-all- trades son, Peter, to investigate paranormal incidents that defy human logic and mystifying events that threaten our very existence on a universal scale. When the unimaginable happens, it's their job to stop it.

Fantastic sc-fi from the ubiquitous JJ Abrams. Think of X-Files but even more of a mind-melt! Most intelligent tv series for many a year - shame it didn't last another couple of seasons.
Just started to watch it and its very good
This is an amazing series and I would recommend it to anyone. If you like sci-fi or not, there's something here for everyone. It's funny, dramatic, surprising, heartwarming and imaginative. Though admittedly the final season doesn't live up to the first four, it still stands up to comparisons with the very best shows I've ever seen. Worth watching for Walter Bishop alone - brilliantly written and portrayed.
This is a box set and so don't know if all play well, or at all. Looks immaculate, seal wrapped, just what I was looking for. Great price, great service. Thank you.
One of the best scifi shows in recent years all collected together at a bargain price, if you like scifi, especially something like X-Files, you can't go wrong.
I think this is a very good series from what I have watched so far. It is a lot different from some of the supernatural series.
This is certainly one of the most outstanding serials in recent years in ANY genre, not just sci-fi/fantasy. The quality of performance by the actors and the story threads are impressively high throughout. Great humour, pathos and sensitivity are shown by all the main characters, especially Anna Torv (Olivia Dunham), Joshua Jackson (Peter Bishop) and the sublime John Noble, who plays Walter Bishop. A fine cameo by Leonard Nimoy (William Bell) binds the whole series together, although Nimoy himself does not appear in many episodes. The actors themselves are continually stretched in terms of their ability by the fact there are parallel universes - with each character having very different traits depending on which universe they live in. Anna Torv is truly superb as in one universe Dunham is quite vulnerable and lacks confidence; in the other she is a super-confident martial arts practitioner and appears to have no weaknesses. Noble is the star performer though, with one Walter having lost parts of his memory and is living in a sanatorium having once been a brilliant scientist. His mood swings are wonderfully portrayed and there are moments of genuine sadness and delight in equal measure. The alternative Walter is the US Secretary of Defence and is far more driven and controlling. The plot shifts in very different directions and there are episodes which are based both in the past and future, so the watcher (or should I say OBSERVER?) has to concentrate to make sure the thread of the story isn't lost. an absorbing series which would probably benefit from a second viewing - and what better way to do it than buying this box set.
This is great value for money. I bought this for a friend for Christmas she loves fringe. This was the best price around by a mile. Delivery was quick and package was good. Many thanks Zavvi.
I bought this as a gift for my elderly parents. For a generation still grappling with DVD/bluray on-demand technology seems light years away to them, but box sets they can handle. This entire 5 series box set was a bargain, and its going to last them ages, well I thought so but they seem addicted to the show and are blitzing through. They received it within 5 days of placing the order, so both service and product get topmarks!
Interesting Series for everyone who likes X-Files
Show: fun, fresh and innovative this show at first glance appears to be an X-Files for the 21st Century but it's more than that. Neatly and wittily scripted it's a joy from start to incredible finale. Clever touches throughout (credit and title music tinkered with to match the episode/series) this is a show that delivers on repeated viewings. Highly Recommended. Boxset: the presentation is neat and compact (ideal for DVD collectors running out of shelf space!) it boasts a fine transfer to DVD and each series has decent if limited extras.
Best money I spent in a long time. This box set not only has all the brilliant episodes of Fringe it also has great extras. These include gag reels, commentary on one of the most intriguing episodes in season 5 and the comic con panel and so much more. This really is one of the best sci if series in ages and you will not be disappointed. The father son relationship between Walter and Peter Bishop played beautifully by John Noble and Joshua Jackson is one of the highlights of the show for me. Each series gets better and better and now I have the box set I can watch my favourite episodes anytime I like or just start from the beginning again. If you enjoy great plots, paranormal activity, parallel universes and great acting from a fantastic cast then this is the box for you.
Love that I finally have the series. Would say that the packaging was a little flimsy, there was a few corners bashed on the box and one of the disks was floating around in the case.
