FELICITY

I actually really loved this show (Amy Jo Johnson rocks!), but it's so weird that JJ Abrams pulled that time travel crap in the last season. Must he employ time travel in EVERYTHING he does???

No.

Amy Jo does rock.

It's a shame she never made it big. She does constantly work, though, so that's cool.

Why did Amy Jo leave Felicity in the first place?

by Anonymousreply 506/07/2013

R5, her mom was sick and eventually died from cancer. She left for that. She did come back at the end, though.

Thanks R6

[quote]Amy Jo Johnson, an original series regular, left the show early in the third season for personal reasons relating to a death in her family. However, she later reprised the role of Julie during the show's final season.

As someone who missed the last season, what time travel stuff happened?

I loved the show, but the last season was confusing.

Amy Jo Johnson has aged beautifully. She's always looked a ecade younger than she really is.

by Anonymousreply 1306/07/2013

It's been a long time since I've seen the show: I couldn't tell the difference between Jennifer Garner and Amy Jo Whatshername, or their characters.

by Anonymousreply 1406/07/2013

Well, Jennifer Garner was in 3 episodes. Amy Jo was in 50.

by Anonymousreply 1506/07/2013

Jennifer was Noel's classical musician girlfriend. Amy Jo played Julie, who played the guitar while she wasn't trying to play Ben (or look for her birth mother).

by Anonymousreply 1606/07/2013

They did look very similar, though.

by Anonymousreply 1706/07/2013

Garner is about 6 inches taller.

Man, late 90s fashion was terrible:

But Amy Jo could work the bare midriff.

by Anonymousreply 2006/08/2013

She still has a rockin body. Must be all of those years as a gymnast.

by Anonymousreply 2106/08/2013

Felicity was the show that made me and probably a lot of other people during that time and at that age want to move to New York.

The final season was completely jacked up. Besides the fact that the entire thing was shown to be a dream it turns out it actually wasn't a dream at all but they barely managed to explain it because the scenes proving that it was real were cut from the finale.

The extras explain that Felicity learns it wasn't a dream because in a cut scene she manages to warn Elena who died in the original timeline to go to Duke instead of Columbia. So years later at Noel's wedding when the audience sees Elena at the wedding Felicity also speaks with her and learns that Felicity's actions in the new timeline caused Elena to go to Duke instead of Columbia thus preventing her death and proving the time shift actually did happen.

At that time a lot of fans took the final scene as a cast party because everyone assumed the entire season never really happened at all when it actually did happen. So stupid.

R21 - Keri still has a rocking body too.

by Anonymousreply 2306/08/2013

I always liked when Julie would perform on Felicity. She has a soothing voice.

by Anonymousreply 2406/08/2013

I thought I remembered reading an interview with Amy Jo Johnson where she stated that her personal issues weren't the reason she left the show. I think she alluded to the fact that she had disagreements with the Producers/Writers over the direction of her character, (I don't remember the show that well, but didn't her character become depressed or suicidal?). I think in that interview, she also hinted that they just used her personal problems as justification to write her off the show.

Anyone else read that or remember it?

by Anonymousreply 2506/08/2013

R25, no, Amy Jo has said several times that it was her mother's cancer. She had uterine cancer when Amy Jo started Felicty and passed away during her run on the show. She left, and the producers told her she could come back anytime she wanted, and she returned in the final season.

JJ Abrams also put her in his What About Brian show.

by Anonymousreply 2606/08/2013

My recollection of what happened is that they had a certain number of episodes written and planned, culminating in the series finale, and then ABC asked them for a few more. You can see that the plot essentially comes to an end before the time travel episodes start. I guess they figured the show was ending, why not do something outrageous.

I actually liked it because the last season was pretty dull up to that point -- the show had pretty much run out of ideas -- and it felt like going back and seeing how things might have turned out differently gave the season more of a purpose.

by Anonymousreply 2706/08/2013

I thought they just got rid of Amy Jo because her character was so unlikeable.

by Anonymousreply 2806/08/2013

Julie wasn't unlikeable - no more so than any of the other characters,

by Anonymousreply 2906/08/2013

I couldn't believe the shit she went though finding her birth mother who denied she was her mother and was in fact still married to her birth father.

by Anonymousreply 3006/08/2013

Amy Jo at the Tiger Eyes premiere.

by Anonymousreply 3106/08/2013

She looks exactly the same WTF

by Anonymousreply 3206/08/2013

Keri or Amy Jo? Who is the better actress?

by Anonymousreply 3306/11/2013

Amy Jo fucked every guy in the cast and showed Scott Speedman how much pleasure his ass could give him. Love that dirty bitch.

by Anonymousreply 3406/11/2013

R18, we weren't talking about their similar body type, we were talking about their faces. Johnson and Garner had very similar looking faces. Hilary Swank could easily have played their fugly triplet.

by Anonymousreply 3506/11/2013

Amy Jo was a better actress then. Keri probably is now.

by Anonymousreply 3606/13/2013

I know I'm alone in this, but all anyone ever talks about with JJ Abrams is what a brilliant producer and director he is. I agree, but I'm more taken with the fact I think he's fucking hot. Anytime I see pics of him, that curly black hair just drives me wild. Bet he has a nice, hairy ass and would make a really HOT bottom. Any JJ gay stories? I'm sure he's hopelessly straight but I'd still like to know if he's ever played around with guys.

by Anonymousreply 3706/13/2013

I loved the show too, but that last season was weird! I loved Amanda Foreman as the goth bitch roommate. JJ must love her, he puts her in almost everything he does. She even has a tiny part in the new Star Trek. Love Keri, too.

by Anonymousreply 3806/13/2013

Amanda was recently in Parenthood as a mother of a child with Asperger's.

by Anonymousreply 3906/13/2013

I always loved the intro for seasons 1 and 2. I think Amy Jo Johnson sang them, actually.

JJ has a tendency of reusing a lot of the actors he works with. More than a handful of the Felicity cast ended up on Alias, a show he says was conceived out of a story line he wanted to do for Felicity.

by Anonymousreply 4106/14/2013

He does reuse a lot of Felicity actors:

Megan Foreman, Jennifer Garner and Greg Grunber are all in Alias

Amy Jo Johnson was in What About Brian

Greg Grungerb was in Lost

Keri Russel was in Mission Impossible 3

by Anonymousreply 4206/14/2013

R42

Kevin Weisman and Robert Benedict were also on Felicity and Alias.

Terry O'Quinn was on Alias and then on Lost.

Trivia... apparently Greg Grunberg and Abrhams have been friends since Kindergarten.

by Anonymousreply 4306/14/2013

What happened to Sally?

by Anonymousreply 4406/15/2013

I adored Amanda Foreman in Felicity, too. She was hilarious.

by Anonymousreply 4506/15/2013

Am I the only who disliked the way Sean became so prominent during the last season of Felicity? I thought Sean worked better as a supporting character, not front and center. It didn't help that Sean and Megan were not a convincing couple to me.

Oh, r44 I also wonder what happened to Sally! Seriously.

by Anonymousreply 4606/15/2013

Yeah, there was definitely too much Sean at the end.I actually think that once Julie left, the focus of the show got really scattered and it kind of lost touch with the original aim of the show.

Also, Noel was the most annoying unlikeable creature ever by the end of the series.

by Anonymousreply 4706/15/2013

Because he`s really John Titor.

by Anonymousreply 4806/15/2013

R48 - Sean was the weakest link.

by Anonymousreply 4906/16/2013

Both of Noel's girlfriends grew up to be a spy.

by Anonymousreply 5006/16/2013

Keri is a lot better playing a spy than Jennifer ever was.

by Anonymousreply 5106/17/2013

Was there any in-fighting on the show?

by Anonymousreply 5207/26/2013

R52, if there was, I doubt it involved Keri. She's just too nice. I always wondered why Amanda Foreman was basically cut out of most of season 4.

by Anonymousreply 5307/26/2013

Good question R53. Amanda is ten years older than Keri. She was 32 when the show started. Maybe she had a baby then.

by Anonymousreply 5407/26/2013

So does anyone here know of any on set Felicity drama or gossip?

by Anonymousreply 5507/27/2013

Love this scene with Julie (Amy Jo) and the cheerleaders.

by Anonymousreply 5607/27/2013

Is this show anything like Alias, Person of Interest, Fringe, Lost? I always thought it was a sappy, romantic college girl comedy (not to say his other shows are sappy). It's hard for me to figure out what this is about. Can someone describe? Even IMDB doesn't shed light.

by Anonymousreply 5707/27/2013

I have to say Amy Jo is very sexy both then and now. She definitely has that 'x factor.'

by Anonymousreply 5807/27/2013

R57 - Felicity is a sheltered California high school graduate. On a whim, she follows a boy (Ben) to New York and NYU. During he first season, she dates her RA Noel, but still has feelings for Ben. Meanwhile, her friend Julie starts dating Ben.

It gets goofy in the final season when JJ adds time travel to the story. Seriously!

The first two seasons are quite good. The third starts to stray.

by Anonymousreply 5907/27/2013

Thank you r59. I'm researching this show and found the beautiful, amazing song that Amy Jo wrote for the show. Tearing up listening to it (I know, Mary!)

by Anonymousreply 6007/27/2013

R60, she wrote that song for her mom who was suffering from cancer. She died, and that's why Amy Jo took a break from the show.

by Anonymousreply 6107/27/2013

Amy Jo was very cute as the Pink Power Ranger, too!

There was something so authentic and special about this show. Can't put my finger on it.

R64, probably all of the magic and time traveling.

R65 - There's no time travel or magic till season 4.

Sean was such a useless character. His condiment invention was completely stupid.

by Anonymousreply 6707/31/2013

I agree. Sean took time away from the characters I cared about. And his loft was ridiculous.

I always wondered if Felicity and Sally were secret girlfriends.
