I’m going to be talking to someone about treatments of parallel worlds in popular media next week, and as the only going mass media concern with a parallel-worlds plot seems to be the show Fringe, it would be helpful for me to be able to talk sensibly about it. Thus, two questions:
1) Where is the best place to look for an explanation of the show’s mythology, particularly in the parallel worlds area?
2) Can you suggest a smallish (ideally single digits) number of episodes to watch to get the idea of how this plays out in the show?
I am aware that, the Internet being what it is, there will be dozens of fan sites and the like just a quick Google away. I have also been around the Internet long enough to know that 90% of these will be utter crap, which is why I’m asking here for suggestions from people who already know something about the subject, and can pre-filter material for me.
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
