branewurms: (Fringe - STRAWBERRY FLAVORED DEATH)
Re: recent events in Fringe! (Wow, that was a good arc and all, but boy am I glad it's over.)

Now, don't get me wrong, I am all for focusing on Olivia at every possible juncture, but while everyone's worrying about her trauma, shouldn't someone... spare a thought for Peter? I mean, granted, the scale of trauma here is rather different, but I think what Peter's gone through is pretty darn traumatic??? What with him having been DATING AND SLEEPING WITH AN IMPOSTOR FOR LIKE WHAT, WEEKS?! MONTHS?! And yet.

Also, I am still kind of annoyed at the whole Peter never realizing it was the wrong Olivia thing. I mean, you just cannot play up a character as so smart and observant and as having such a keen understanding of people and then... have him so completely drop the ball. ALTLIVIA IS SO COMPLETELY FUCKING DIFFERENT OMGGGGGG HOW COULD ANYONE NOT NOTICE THAT. The way she walks, the way she wears her clothes and make up, the way she holds her face, the way she laughs, THE WAY SHE DOES EVERYTHING. Y'know, Anna Torv did a great job portraying someone so similar yet wholly different, but it made it completely incomprehensible that Peter wouldn't notice. It would be one thing if he didn't know about the other world and the other Olivia! BUT HE'D EVEN MET HER. AND NOTED HOW SHE SEEMED DIFFERENT.

Also, seriously, Olivia is way hotter than altLivia. Which is not meant as a dig at altLivia, she's got a damn sexy swagger up in there, but Olivia is like. ETHEREAL. Like a fairy tale. A fairy tale in an armored tank, maybe, but a fairy tale all the same. AltLivia is earthy and mundane by comparison, which, idk, might be more in line with some people's preferences, but MY preferences otoh, jfc, it's like they made Olivia specifically to slay me ded.

Anyway, /tl;dr random rant about a show that is ~95% everything I could ever possibly want from TV. I HAVE A VAGENDA AND I AM NOT AFRAID TO USE IT.

That was also bothersome. And Peter's "Oh, I explained it away based on the events that we went through" seems remarkably unscientific for him, as well. One would think, being around Walter for as long as he has, Peter would have long since burned out any capacity he had for rationalization.

Agreed entirely about Anna being able to portray two different, yet similar, Olivias and to do it well.

Now, onward to Walternate's grand designs!
