I always wonder, would I rewatch a TV series if I owned it on DVD? And the answer is in fact yes. I don’t do it often or with many shows. There are only two shows that I seem to rewatch on DVD, even though I own quite a few.
Those two shows are Felicity and Gilmore Girls.
Felicity started my sophomore year of college and I was fan from the beginning, the only problem was the WB was no longer available in College Station my last semester, so I stopped watching it and had to wait to finish the series until it was available on DVD.
I’m not 100% sure why I love this show, but for some reason I do! Despite the fact that my brother always refers to it as “feelin’ sh*tty”. . .I can understand he thoughts because it definitely seems more female focused.
Probably the fact that I was in college and this show was based on a group of college friends I could relate. Though fortunately I didn’t have to experience a roommate like Megan, but would have been highly entertained by Sean. But my main reason for liking this show most was because I wish I had done something as elaborate as move across the country and try out a new place instead of just staying in Texas.
I started rewatching Felicity last weekend and have been really enjoying it. I seemed to forget most of the details of the story line but they are slowly coming back to me as I watch. Ever since her days on the Mickey Mouse Club I have been a Keri Russell fan. I think that is what initially drew me to the show, since her character was the focus.
J.J. Abrams created this show which I think is somewhat ironic because he moved on to Alias, Lost, Fringe and Star Trek the movie. Though, in watching his other shows I am impressed at his loyalty and the way he seems to have brought many actors and actresses along with him from project to project.
So. . .if you’ve been wondering, that’s what I have been up to in a lot of my spare time. And I am still (even though the show has ended and been finished for years) rooting for Ben over Noel. . .
I miss the good old days of the WB, Felicity, Dawson’s Creek and Gilmore Girls. . .the CW dramas just aren’t the same.
