Another 22 down, 13 left to go, and still a ton of sci-fi mystery to look forward to. Fringe closes out another stellar season of TV with season 4's head scratching finale, "Brave New World: Part 2".

Time loops make for a humorous way to spend February 2nd but maybe not if it happened to you on any other day. This week's Fringe puts it's own unique spin on time anomalies with everything from time loops, bubbles, chambers, and displacements.
Could wormholes and paradoxes be Fringe's new bread and butter? Maybe, as the season finale picks up after last week's episode left off, with Peter now somewhere in the future.
Soap star turned superhero in Metropolis? No, Jensen Ackles isn't returning to Smallville for one last time. Its daytime soap opera star Eric Martsolf guest staring on Smallville as Booster Gold, one of the latest hero to come from the DC universe.
