Who are you? After sacrificing himself to save both worlds, Peter mysteriously returns to ours. But he has been forgotten - by Olivia, by Walter, by everyone. It's as if he never existed. At the same time, shapeshifters controlled by an unknown master begin an onslaught of destruction, and now the two former enemy universes must cooperate to defy a common foe. Fringe's thrilling 22-episode fourth season continues the inspired series' synthesis of astounding phenomena, baffling secrets and dramatic, character-driven stories. And in this season, events may prove that the most powerful force in our universe - or theirs - is not a doomsday device, not a paranormal force, but human love.

The masterful writing and plot & character development continue to be the real stars with the mad-science gluing the narrative together. It is not possible to describe any of the plot without spoilers but suffice to say that a certain amount of concentration is required and even the few stand-alone episodes reveal a new intriguing twist so an unencumbered memory is essential. There is one episode towards the end of this season that seems to be totally unrelated to anything else but, surprise, surprise it does eventually make sense and sets the scene for Season Five (again, like Season Four, rumoured to be the last).
The cast continue to be superb but, again, John Noble shines brighter than the rest - he should definitely be in the running for an award of some sort. Fringe persists as one of the most original and downright strange series ever to grace our screens. Excellent, mind-bending stuff.
And what a fascinating array of characters they are. No-one is exactly what they seem. Heroes succumb to their weaknesses. Villains shock with unexpected displays of compassion. Everyone has their own loyalties and agenda. Everyone is flawed. The list of guest stars reads like a who's who of American character actors and I don't remember a single performance during the entire series that doesn't bring something memorable to the role.
This is television at its very best; intelligent, complex, suspenseful, allegorical, epic, passionate, painful, uplifting, unremittingly human and wonderfully entertaining.
In short, I thoroughly recommend it!
