Updated 2/28/2014: Looked into an issue in comments, still in order. See comments for details.
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.

Season 2-5: In Order
Season 1: 1-20, Don't watch 21

Episode 21: watch it some time when you're bored, it's not very good and doesn't fit anywhere in the continuity. From Wikipedia:
"Unearthed" was the last episode filmed during the first season schedule. Although it was filmed during the first season,[4] "Unearthed" aired during the following season on Monday, January 11, 2010, a departure from its normal timeslot on Thursdays.[5] 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.

  2. Now it seems that the last and second-to-last episodes of season 1 are simply reversed.

  8. I have been watching Fringe on Netflix over the last few weeks. I just watched Season 4 Episode 19 Letters of Transit and it is definitely out of place. It has to belong to season 5.

  9. Hey pmtnmama,
    I looked into it and it seems to be in the right place. According to IMDB there are credits for "Observer #1", Lead Tattie, Kitty, and "Club Doorman" that all match the credits, and seem like they'd be pretty specific to the individual episode. A lot of stuff in Fringe seems out of place, but that's just JJ Abrams for you :P

  10. I second the just reverse the last and second-last episodes. The second season starts where the second-last episode left off and the final episode is not worthy of a finale. Having just watched it, there wasn't anything at all going on with the overall storyline, so I really don't think you're spoiling anything in season two by watching it (I watched as it aired and this is my second go-round) That sort of goes along with Jackson's quote about them filming an extra episode just to fulfill the order; not really knowing where it would fit in, they purposely didn't make it part of the overall arc. I get why it is where it is, but you could really skip it altogether if you wanted. It's one of the few episodes that wasn't all that interesting scientifically and it didn't have its usual charm or sense of humor. I never once said, 'I love Walter' out loud While watching it.

    American networks are forever cancelling programmes.you just get into a season only to find out there isnt another one.
    Yet something like bones and criminal minds that is the same format every episode get 10 /11 seasons.

  14. Bring Fringe back!! I've watched and rewatched the Series 6 times. Was just watching Season 1, episode 1 when I saw network was charging. I already pay for Network. Why do you need to charge again for 'old' shows?
