Updated 9/22/2014: Seasons 2-5 are In Order.
It’s been a while since we had a new out-of-order report from Netflix, but it was only a matter of time before a new report surfaced. When watching Season 1 of Fringe, don’t watch the last episode, it contains strange spoilers from Season 2, even though it doesn’t fit into Season 2 very well. It is important not to watch it where it is listed though, as there are spoilers.
“Unearthed” was the last episode filmed during the first season schedule. Although it was filmed during the first season, “Unearthed” aired during the following season on Monday, January 11, 2010, a departure from its normal timeslot on Thursdays. Actor Joshua Jackson explained the move in April 2009, “[It’s] for boring reasons. They only had 22 airdates for our show this year, but they ordered 23 episodes, so we shot one for next year, which is just silly TV network stuff.
As always, check the left column for any shows you’re about to watch on Netflix to make sure you don’t stumble on spoilers, and report any out of order episodes you find in the comments.
