Geek Blu Review: Fringe Season 3

Fringe may go down as the most ill-hyped show of the last few years. When it was first announced, way too many people started comparing it to a past Fox hit series – The X-Files. At first the similarities were there with the weird, impossible events being investigated by a team of FBI agents. There were creatures and aliens and crazy people – Oh my! I was at first against another X-Files type program and therefore hesitant to watch Fringe. But watch I did and am I glad I did!
Something happened after the first few episodes, something changed. It wasn’t the show per se but my perception of it. Once I stopped looking for the Mulder/Scully connection and started watching this new show, I became enthralled with the Fringe Division. With Walter Bishop and Olivia Dunham. Watching for the Observer, hunting down glyphs. This wasn’t the “New” X-Files, this was a real show. A better show. A show that just started its Fourth Season and just released Season Three on disc. A Season Three I just plowed through on Blu ray. Warning: There be mild SPOILERS ahead!
Customers And Investors Smacking Netflix Around!

People are getting pretty fed up with Netflix lately. Once a poster child for a company that does no wrong, the online rental company is facing down an angry mob of customers and investors. After the company announced the 60% price hike for the popular one dvd plus Instant Streaming, users have been tearing it a new hole on message boards, blogs and Facebook pages. Now Netflix is beginning to feel the pain as investors are taking fire the home of the Red Envelope.
Netflix stock saw a 13% slide in price which translates to a $28 per share loss. That’s from early trading, things could change by day’s end. Chances are if it does rebound, it will not gain that full 13% back. This is partly due to Netflix’s revised subscriber numbers announced today. The company is looking at close to a million LESS customers than it had previously expected for the U.S. third quarter. 800,000 of that is loss of expected dvd only subscribers. Netflix had been over optimistic about their numbers after they announced the price hike, leading many to question the management’s sanity.
