Fringe | Season 4 | Episode 1 | “Neither Here Nor There”
Fringe slips back onto our screens for a fourth season, jumping right into weekly casework and dropping hints about what has happened in the short time (days?) since the Universes were joined and Peter sort-of-vanished.
An electron gun is an essential component of most visual display equipment made before the advent of LCD, LED and plasma technology. An electric current heats up a metal filament or rod, causing it to emit electrons. These electrons are accelerated towards a screen using an electric field, and special coatings on the screen cause it to fluoresce (emit light) when the electrons strike it. Images are built up by moving the electron beam across the screen very rapidly, and colour images by using different beams for red, green and blue light (it looks like the Observer got hold of a red one).
Thirty-odd people were killed in a highly unusual fashion, and nobody thought to place the kill sites on a map? Really? It took Agent Lee’s insight to realise that the killings were grouped around transit stations? Current score for this season – Baddies: 1 | Fringe Division: -1000.
