Tyler @ Pulp Tone - FRINGE: All That Jazz & Brown Betty

by Tyler Weaver.  Follow me on Twitter.

When reviewing a “musical” episode of anything, the first question asked is “yes, but can the stars of the show sing?” Yes. The cast of FRINGE can. Moving on.
I’ve long ragged on the FRINGE done-in-ones. They either pop up at inopportune moments, like pulling the e-brake instead of lightly depressing the footbrake in a car, or they’re just not that good. This episode was actually how a done-in-one should be… done, reminding me of the recent HOUSE done-in-ones, “5 to 9,” featuring the HOUSE formula from Cuddy’s eyes, and the recent “Lockdown” episode directed by Hugh Laurie. The done-in-one should provide a different perspective on the established show formula, especially when the show is as mythologically-oriented as FRINGE, or steeped in character, such as HOUSE.
This episode succeeds admirably.
