Mini FAQ

What is this? I don't get it.
The TV show Fringe flashes up glyphs right before most of the commercial breaks. These glyphs all represent different letters and together the glyphs shown in an episode will spell out a word that is related to that episode in some way.
What do the red question marks mean?
Those are glyphs that never appeared in the show (the letters X and Z). No one knows what they actually are (or if the letters were ever even assigned a glyph), so what is shown is someone's educated guess.

Why not decode the glyphs immediately?
Because I didn't like the fact that I could often guess the glyph word before the end of the episode. This way I can keep track of the glyphs but only get the decoded word at the end. If you don't want to wait you can click "decode" at any time. It's up to you.
