Random Thoughts, Questions, & Ideas
By Patti G
Before I ramble on with my thoughts about this last episode of the season, I
think it calls for a bit of fanfare. I would like to thank the people at
Prospect Park for getting AMC back to the viewers and bringing the show into the
21st century. Thanks to all the writers and producers and all the behind the
scene staff that work so hard and have done an admirable job with this first
season. A special kudos to the writers for keeping an eye on the show's past
and characters' history while bringing the stories current. I want to thank the
actors who took a leap of faith and signed on for this new venture. I am hoping
that more of your fellow cast mates will join you this season. A nod also has to
go to the viewers who have proven that Prospect Park was right in taking
on this project, and that we viewers of AMC are a loyal bunch.
There were some bumps at the beginning of the season. Some viewers objected
to the profanity. I myself did not mind it when it was used sparingly and within
context, but I don't miss it. The same was true of the more liberal sex scenes
which also upset some viewers and have been toned down as well.
Now onto my Random Thoughts….
Angie is right, without Tad (or maybe with him) and his all-purpose detective
agency, Jesse is a shoe in for all the local residents' business.
Maybe some of the men in Pine Valley should take a cue from the song "if you
like it, better put a ring on it."
If Miranda wants AJ, she better speak up, and Heather really needs to dial it
down a notch.
We need some explanations as to why people are living where they are (Dixie
at The Chandlers), where some characters are (i.e., Kathy, Gabby). What is Adam
doing exactly? If they are not going to be able to get back original actors for
some of the characters or recast them, then WE the viewers need a more plausible
explanation as to where they are or more precisely why they aren't in Pine
still don't understand why Brooke and Adam as well as Dixie and Tad are not married
after five years.
It is nice to see that Colby can be kind when she wants to. Her friendship with
Cassandra is very genuine.
Why is JR paying for Oliver's medical bills? Just to impress Cara or out of
guilt over stealing her prescription pad?
If Brooke does get together with Dimitri, she will once again be getting
Erica's hand me downs.
Honestly, I never understood what is so great about Brooke. She is attractive,
smart, loyal, and true but so is a good dog. I also think they dress Brooke very
I don't understand exactly why Count Andrassi (Dimitri) would want a job
working for the Chandlers? He must have supported himself all these years doing
whatever he did in the past. He is a count for goodness sakes.
David is right about one thing. If Jesse keeps lying to Angie, she will reach
the end of the line with him (at least for a while), long enough for David and her
to have some sort of dalliance.
I thought for a season-ending episode, the show was a dud until the very end.
Tad is returning!!!! It just dawned on me what the title of the episode meant. I
really feel stupid not seeing it till it was right in front of me.
See you next season. Look for my Fan Fiction Episodes.
I would love to hear from any of my readers.
