Violent, speed-jar tv show sure to draw you in.
Fringe is about fringe science. Because of the experimental nature, it can be horror-ish. I watch with my mom, because our main concern is sexual content(it has some!!)
Violence: 4/5 Lots of blood, pus, etc. Frightening creatures. Gagging, choking and hand to hand combat. Sometimes it is stuff out of a horror movie. Brains melt out of ears, teeth fall off, and jaws decompose. Gun wounds are shown. Explosions and talk of loss. LOTS of Blood. A death of a well known character happens in our world, but we see more of him in the alternate universe. One episode revolves around child abduction. A man hangs himself, another slices his throat with a razor blade, and another swallows a razor blade(we see him on the ground, eyes open, surrounded in a pool of silver blood). Talk of dying in childbirth, of cancer, etc. Walter has a few panic attacks with smashing, hitting, etc. People abduct pregnant Olivia, attempting to harm and abort her child, although she escapes. We see her deliver the baby with Lincoln and Henry(not graphic.) The last season is the most graphic(Walter is tortured, and we see him sweat and bleed out of his nose and eyes, Etta is killed and we see a good amount of blood). Torture sequences include mind reading, electrocution, etc. Nina kills herself with a bullet to her head. August dies-little to no blood. A bullet is removed from the back of Olivia's head, we see blood.
Sex: 3/5 Women are often seen in underwear and bras-both for experiments in labs, and in bed. Olivia and her former job partner John meet in hotels to have sex. We see them kiss and roll around, but never actually SEE it. Talk of cheating. Kisses. Walter makes many, many, many innuendos. A few scenes take place in strip clubs with women dancing for money. One sex scene, with music as the primary sound, showing brief undressing, rolling around, and making out. Peter and alternate Olivia sleep together/make out. Talk about STDs, and sex in general(whether they used protection, if it's happened yet, etc. A man offers to give his girlfriend(it may be his wife, idk) a back rub, with them undressing, kissing, and massaging. A few other sexual scenes in dream like sequences are mostly rolling around(under blankets) making out, and commenting
Language: 2/5 Bastard, hell, damn, God.
Drinking/Drugs: Scenes take place in bars. Characters are seen drinking and smoking. Walter says the only thing he loves more than taking drugs is administering them. Lots of LSD use.
Good show, but parental viewing is needed!
