'Fringe' Friday: Fox gives you props
It feels like it's been forever since we had a new Friday night "Fringe," but our favorite dimension-jumping show returns tonight with the first of three episodes that lead up to the big finale for Season 3. If you had any doubts about it being worth the wait, check out the exclusive picture from tonight's episode. Broyles blowing bubbles? I think we're in for a treat.
Speaking of treats, Fox is handing out a few goodies to the fans of "Fringe."
The future of "Fringe" was highly debated online after Fox moved the show to the Friday night death slot in January, but fears of its cancellation were quelled in March when the network greenlighted the sci-fi series for a fourth season. Now, to thank the viewers who followed "Fringe" to its new home on Friday nights, Fox is giving fans props. Literally.
Between now and the season finale on May 6, Fox will be having weekly drawings to give away replicas of props used on the show. You could win the blueprints for the doomsday machine, the Observer’s doomsday drawing, Massive Dynamic stock certificates, or a prize package that includes "Show Me" ID cards, an ear cuff and a branded chair back.
Of course, this is "Fringe" we're talking about, so nothing comes easy. Here's the puzzle Fox lays out:
"On Fridays after 12:00 PM (Noon) ET, FRINGE fans can head over to www.fox.com/fringe or www.facebook.com/fringe to begin their search for clues that will lead them to the code word hidden in FRINGE content. Fans who find the code word can enter it upon check-in at GetGlue, a leading social network for entertainment, which will unlock online FRINGE stickers and also enter the user into the weekly drawing. The giveaway promotion is open to all fans 18 years of age and over who check in to FRINGE at www.getglue.com. Every Thursday, one winner will be selected at random by GetGlue among all entries made between the preceding Friday through Wednesday entry period."
So head over to the "Fringe" website and start your own investigation, but don’t forget to tune in for tonight's episode and then come back here to leave your thoughts when I post on Show Tracker. To tide you over until then, I'll leave you with a little extra Astrid Action.
