Thoroughly enjoyed Fringe season 3 finale. I had some mild trepidation about it at first after the second last episode because I thought that Peter was thrown into the other universe. But that 2026!episode was immensely satisfying and squees were aplenty when I realized they were married. I kept angstying that that might be alt!Olivia though lol. Even Olivia being shot dead didn't spoil it for me because PETER AND OLIVIA WERE TOGETHER!!!

I did think that what they did to Walter was OTT. Him being jailed was one thing but all those guards with the guns guarding him? What did they expect the old man to do - make a run for it? But I love future!Astrid and future!Broyles ( was he the President? ) and I like the actress who played Olivia's niece.

I can't believe that the show will be ending soon? Seriously, season 5 will be the last season? Unless they screwed up S4 really, really badly, I want the show to go on forever!

Also, I watched Bourne Legacy a while back. I wouldn't have watched it at all if Jeremy Renner were replacing Matt Damon as Bourne lol. As it was, I couldn't help but compare Aaron to Bourne. On its own, I guess it was alright. I lovelovelove Ed Norton, and Rachel Weisz and Jeremy Renner were good. But compared to the original Bourne trilogy, it fell way, way, way short. Heh, I guess they couldn't make Aaron cut and dye Dr Marta's hair, eh, despite her desperately needing some sort of disguise because even with the glasses, she screamed I'm Dr Marta Shearing, apprehend me!

Matt Damon, I need you back as Jason Bourne!

I liked Bourne Legacy better than the previous trilogy. Because I liked Marta much more than Marie. Never liked Marie. For me, Marta and Aaron clicked much better, they had better chemistry, IMHO.

Not much of a fan of Marie either. Lol, I wasn't upset when the movie did'nt stay true to the books where she was concerned. It's my absolute love for Jason Bourne himself that made me prefer the originals!

I like Renneer's movie exactly because he wasn't Bourne there. There's one Bourne :) But the movie itself was fun to watch and both lead characters were good so i have no complains (esp after someone (and i think it were you) said that it was Matt's decision to put away Bourne story for a while).

Oh, but if Renner was Bourne, I wouldn't be watching the movie at all! In fact, when the news first came out that Matt wouldn't be in the new movie, I thought the "replacement" actor would star as a younger Bourne in some sort of a prequel or something. My interest in the movie was only piqued when someone on my flist posted a clip of the trailer with a brief sypnosis. And also, I'm very much a fan of Ed Norton. Speaking of Ed Norton, apparently I'm the only one who was upset that he didn't reprise his role as Bruce Jenner in The Avengers lol.

And the rings that she and Peter wore *squeessqueessquees*

I hope I'll be able to finish season 4 before S5 starts.

The Bourne movies are incomparable. I can't imagine anyone else doing anything better. Matt Damon is Jason Bourne, and there can never be another. I never even considered going to see Bourne Legacy.

Nah, no need to watch it. Unless you're a fan of any of the actors. I adore Ed Norton, and Jeremy Renner has been getting to me since The Avengers and the last Mission Impossible. And Rachel Weisz was good too!!

Not sure I'm interested in seeing this "new" Bourne. Although I'm glad to learn Renner isn't actually playing the Bourne character. I wasn't sure before so I might see it now.

The main pull for me was Edward Norton. I'm a fan! Lol, I kept thinking about Jason Bourne while watching it.
