What Were You Thinking Emmys?

I am very disappointed that there was no Emmy love for John Noble and Anna Torv this year.  What's up with that?  Between them they played what could be considered 10 versions of their characters.  Present Day Olivia and Fauxlivia, Bellivia, Older Olivia, Present Day Walter and Walternate, Younger Walter and Walternate, Older Walter and Walternate. 

Yes, maybe I'm stretching it a bit with all the Present Day, Older, Younger etc. but each version of themselves was a little different and they deserved recognition.  Oh, Emmy Gods - shame on you.

Yipee! that Josh presented but Hiss!  Boo! about John and Anna.

Fringe was nominated for Outstanding Creative Achievement in Interactive Media so at least there's that.

See who else didn't get the nod.

I must go now.  I have some sulking and pouting to do.

Favorites and Best Ofs: Fringe Season 1 Episode 2, The Same Old Story

Favorite Peter and Walter moment ... Hands down when Peter sings Row, Row, Row Your Boat to Walter to help him sleep.

Favorite Peter and Olivia moment ... When he sits with her on the bench and touches her hand, letting her know she is not alone in facing the madness.

Best Ewww, Gross moment ... Walter digging the eyeball out of it's socket.

Best WTF moment ... When Broyles asks Olivia if she and John were safe the last time they were intimate and then Olivia's stomach starts growing like she's pregnant.  Double WTF points because even though I have watched this scene many times I still always think it's real at first.  (Uh, maybe that last sentence should go into a new category titled Best Senior Moment.)

Fringe Recap - 'The Same Old Story' - (1x02)

Fringe - Season 1, Episode 2
'The Same Old Story'

Episode 102 opens showing the location marker of Boston Mass attached to a highway overpass. Next, we are taken to a motel room where a very talkative stripper is stretched out on a bed speaking to a shirtless man as he zips up his jeans.

When he grabs his bag on the way to the bathroom, she asks if there is a mushroom pizza in it. Huh? I'm assuming she's joking, maybe trying to diffuse any post-copulation awkwardness, but she's so damn babbly there's no time for awkwardness. Some people have a cigarette after sex, she apparently has Chatty Cathy syndrome.

She proceeds to fire off an onlslaught of words at the man, asking him if he's married, stating she knows it's none of her business, telling him her real name (maybe she gets lonely working the pole all day, who knows...), explaining that she and her sisters all have flowers as their middle names.  She says that her Mom didn’t even spell her first name right.
