I dug out my old DVDs and I'm quite enjoying it.%0D %0D Wow, Felicity was such a psycho nut. I love when they 'by accident' play one of her psycho tapes at a dorm party, talking about how she's ready to have sex for the first time.%0D %0D Scott Speedman was adorable. Smiles his great smile all the time.%0D %0D But, I can only handle watching one episode at a time or I get a headache from the teenage triteness.

I had a huge crush on Amy Jo Johnson and her gymnast body.

by Anonymousreply 203/21/2011

Loved Felicity. It was on while I was in college, so it felt like I was watching portions of my life.

I never did understand why the ratings dropped when she cut her hair. Did people really care that much about Keri Russell's hair?

The last episode still makes me cry. Some people didn't like the time travel stuff, but I enjoyed it.

by Anonymousreply 303/21/2011

The ratings fell off because the writing wasn't as good, not because Keri cut her hair. I liked her hair best not immediately after she cut it, but toward the end of season two, when it was a curly bob.

I LOVED Felicity. Such a unique show. Amy Jo Johnson was a fabulous actress. The last season suffered without Julie. And I do think the whole time travel thing was really odd, but I do love the final.

Please dont say too much about the finale, I'm still only on series 2. I actually have been warned off getting anymore of the series.%0D %0D I agree, series 2 isn't nearly as good as series one. But it's still good.%0D %0D Who do you guys prefer, Noel or Ben?

by Anonymousreply 903/21/2011

Actually, the ratings fell off because the show went from a cushy post-Buffy Tuesday night timeslot to leading off Sunday nights before Jack & Jill.%0D %0D I liked the show, but I always felt it was a little overpraised. It's the only show, though, where I have not found Greg Grunberg to be unbelievably irritating. As for his documentary, it was one in a long line of devices contrived to allow for voiceover. First it was the ridiculous taped conversations to Sally (even in '98 no one communicated by mailing tapes), then it was sessions with Amy Aquino's shrink character, Dr. Pavone, and then it was the documentary.

by Anonymousreply 1003/21/2011

I actually grew to like Sean, but they expanded his part WAY too much. I guess maybe because he was best friends with J.J Abrams.

Sean's stupid character took up more and more screen time and they relegated poor Noel to stupid story lines including that ridiculous thing with him going off and marrying the Doritos girl.

One of my all time favorite shows. Like an above poster, watched it during college, and felt like I was watching snippets from my own life. Still a big fan of the cast and wish that Scott S and Keri were bigger stars. Anyone ever work with either of them and have personal scoop?

I got drawn into and came to quite like, discovering Felicity when it was re-aired at one point every week night during the hour I usually prepared dinner -- the perfect hour for semi-mindless, familiar as an old pair of slippers fare. %0D %0D For all the ridiculous things wrong with it, aspects of it were well done, and Scott Speedman could be forgiven for most any amount of mopeyness.%0D %0D If I recall, the film quality was interesting, too, very crisp, with lots of lush, deep black and intense depth of color. The Dean & Deluca store was an example.

by Anonymousreply 2303/21/2011

I agree too. He's a remarkably good actor. He responds to people so well and naturally. Laughs as though he's hearing the joke for the first time. That's a skill of its own.%0D %0D I think Felicity's parents are definitely a very weak link. It always happens in very good shows. Her mother is awful. I don't believe a word she says.

by Anonymousreply 2703/21/2011

I, too, am surprised Speedman isn't a bigger star, though for a while after Felicity, it seemed like he chose the wrong projects. I also think he could totally land a good TV show, but he seems not to be interested in TV anymore, even though it would make him a bigger name.

I once raised his name to a big-time producer, as a casting suggestion, and she wrinkled her nose and said that she was totally unimpressed by him, that in person, he's not at all dynamic and like a wet noodle. So maybe there is something going on off-camera that makes him less appealing? Or maybe this was just one person's opinion.

by Anonymousreply 2803/21/2011

Well nobody came out of Felicity a big star, except, ironically, Jennifer Garner. Who would have thought she'd end up the movie star?

Scott Speedman was in some indie movie with Sarah Polley that was pretty good. I think he's a very charismatic actor, but other than those vampire movies, I'm not sure what else he's really been up to.

Pretty much none of the mega hyped WB stars made it in movies like they thought they would. SMG has come crawling back to TV, Keri Russell had some sitcom on Fox that was canceled. In fact, the only big names that came out of the WB are Katie Holmes and Michelle Williams.

The best thing about Scot SpeedMan's character was his use of the word "DICK" he used it every time he could. Felicity had one of the best supporting casts in a show. Javier, Meghan, Richard..I loved them.

They killed him off? I never knew that. Felicity must have been such a freak out on that episode (and for several after). She was such a drama queen, even when there was no drama. Cool cat she was not.

I never bothered getting seasons 3 & 4 mostly due to all the stuff I heard about the show going off.

Unpopular opinion Keri looked fantastic with short hair.

by Anonymousreply 5905/21/2012

The time travel thing was done because the show was originally only picked up for 17 episodes its last season. Then the WB ordered 5 more episodes and the writers had to scramble to come up with something. That being said, they really could have come up with something a lot better. Also, Elena was alive again because when Felicity went back in time she convinced her to go to a different med school. Unfortunately, that scene got left on the cutting room floor so her miraculous resurrection made zero sense.

by Anonymousreply 6005/21/2012

So the last five episodes aren't canon? It seemed the producers already wrapped up the show the way they wanted and those last 5 What If episodes were just tacked on but not meant to be taken seriously, like the What If episode of Grey's Anthony or the Halloween episodes of The Simpsons.

by Anonymousreply 6105/21/2012

Didn't they meet Hurley during those episodes?

by Anonymousreply 6205/21/2012

R61: it still makes zero sense.

If she had warned Elena and averted her death, then that means the spell was NOT undone, meaning 1) Noel would be dead and 2) all of the characters would be able to remember Felicity changing things in the new timeline.

There is no logical way to explain why Elena and Noel would both be alive.

Idiotic, lazy writing. A much simpler solution would have just been to nix the whole "Elena dies in a car accident" story altogether.

by Anonymousreply 6305/21/2012

Why did they get rid of Julie? Did Amy Jo have something else going on?

by Anonymousreply 6405/22/2012

I'm not sure what exactly happened to Amy Jo, but I know the network never liked her. There was an EW article before the show premiered that said the WB wanted to recast the role, but the producers went to bat for her and the network relented. I guess after a couple of years, though, the network got their way.

by Anonymousreply 6505/22/2012

R66 - Thanks. I found Julie/Amy Jo more interesting and more attractive than Felicity (though I do like Keri Russell).

by Anonymousreply 6605/22/2012

Actually she left the show on her own to do music. Stupid move on her part.

She was the best actress on the show and the only character who was willing to be like "WTF Felicity!?".

The time travel thing was weird but without it JJ Abrams wouldn't have the device used in all of his series.

Amy Jo Johnson did not leave the show voluntarily. It may have been spun that way in a press release but she was definitely let go.

She left in the third season when her real life mother died. She was always welcome back and she did return at the end of the fourth and final season.

Meghan's box actually contained Felicity, Noel, Julie, Ben and Elena.  The whole episode was in black and white and it involved Felicity's visit to a doctor who promised to relieve her of her heartbreak by cutting out her heart.  Her friends had all visited the same place and had thes ame procedure done.  Then they all end up trapped in a room and it turns out that they are little dolls in Meghan's box.  The title of this particular episode is "Help for the Lovelorn."
