Oh Felicity. Watching your show makes me want to go back to college. Then again, everything makes me want to go back to college, like my premature gray hairs, adult acne, responsibilities, living at my parent's house, and alcohol related regret.

But we need more of a hook here. Something CRAZY...
Let's see: "Young woman follows her high school crush across the country so she can go to college with him."
|Yes. Felicity was created by JJ Abrams.|
|Grunberg Blumberg Shlumberg|
|Who somehow ends up being the most stable person on the show. love. her.|
|No, not that Brian.|
Anyway. Felicity's New York world is bathed in earth tones, surely to compliment her autumnal hair and skin. Everyone has that kind-of laid back, east coast vibe. It's all very collegiate. She works in a trendy coffee shop and loves ART.

New shoe leather
A new way home
I don't remember
Ok, sorry about that. The theme song for seasons 3 and 4 has burrowed itself in my brain like some kind of parasitic earwig. New shoe leather? What the hell does that mean. All I could think of while watching the intro was buying a pair of Frye oxfords and create a new version of me. Good job JJ. Your subliminal advertising WORKED.
|I only pulled my pants on halfway to take this photo.|
|a neeeew version of you.|
|I know, my hypocrisy is revolting.|
|What was with the mullet?|
|God this man is hideous.|
|nope, not that one|
|Much like the mythical Scott Speedman Rabbit Animorph.|
I'll throw my husband in for you Speedman.
|ooo! Love me some Susie Q!|
|Fun Gay Boss. Yeah!|
|Black best friend!|
|Diversity! Hell yeah!|
also, there's "Not Ben":
|right. shit. NOEL. I don't know why I can't remember your name.|
All I can think of is the giant lipped children they would have together.
Key up some kind of ridiculous piano melody for me here...
Seriously, why does everyone have to LIE to each other. About EVERYTHING. You know what's good for healthy relationships? Communication. You know what's not good for dramatic television? Healthy relationships. I remember watching All My Children with my mom as a teen, marveling at how everyone was such a mess. And Barb says to me, "(sigh) I don't know Shay. They just can't keep anyone happy for too long." And that friends, is DRAMA.
Well, the drama must be in the water at UNY, cause there is also a running theme of pregnancies or pregnancy scares that all coincide with an incident of infidelity.
So pardon me while I go back in time and re-do all my past maybe mistakes, just to make sure I made the right decisions in life. Naturally, I'm starting with the college years. brb.
