I think my favorite thing about Felicity was the way JJ Abrams kept getting bored with his basic concept. “Okay, I recognize that we’re a realistic drama about a student at a thinly-veiled NYU, but they’re friends with a guy who markets Smoothaise. And her roommate is sometimes one of the subway mole people. And are we absolutely sure she can’t be a spy? Fine, but then we’re having a Twilight Zone episode. AND IN THE FINALE WE ARE DAMN WELL GOING BACK IN TIME.”
I imagine being on the writing staff of Felicity was a lot like playing dolls with a four-year-old.
