TV Review: Fringe 2×17 “Olivia. In the Lab. With the Revolver.”

First off, let me start by saying this:  Best. Title. Ever.  They even play Clue in the episode! Allow me to continue by saying that the second season of Fringe has so far been what we in the know refer to as “awesome.” Seriously. And “Olivia. In the Lab. With the Revolver.” is making the [...]
