Season 4 of Fringe ends tomorrow night, and it’s big enough that the show managed to pull Leonard Nimoy out of retirement to show back up as William Bell (although admittedly pulling Nimoy out of retirement doesn’t seem to be the most difficult thing to do). At any rate, here’s a trailer for the finale, which contains a bit of new footage and a lot of old footage. But some of the new footage includes Nimoy and Walter looking at verdant field with some kind of lizard people in it, so it’s worth watching. You know, not that I particularly want our universe to be destroyed — it’s where I keep all my stuff — but if has to be destroyed and then remade in someone’s image, really, we could do a lot worse than Leonard Nimoy, don’t you think?

He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
