Noel Crane. Noel brought a human element to the show that was much needed, and MUCH MORE BELIEVABLE than the Ben/Felicity storyline. Of course, my affinity for brunettes in sweaters skews this opinion slightly; however, Noel and Felicity are just more of a fit.
Like most shows, Felcity had a super strong start and an ending that made you say, "what the f***?" The show started to go downhill once they switched theme songs (I hate when shows do that). And the ending was...just...I mean, really? Time travel? Why introduce something so supernatural into a show that shined because of its realism?
Despite possibly the worst ending of all time, there is something really loveable and addictive about Felicity. Of course, the love triangle keeps things exciting. I also appreciated the scripts ability to highlight mundane eccentricities of each character, like Javier's use of "crunch" instead of crush. Lastly, there was something really special about the show's portrayal of college life: the dark-halled dorms, the late-night study sessions during finals week, the roommate issues, gritty shots of the classroom, etc., all shown in a contemporary way.
Characters today are entirely too glammed up: fake eyelashes, suits, designer shoes. I miss the shows of the 90s, like Felicity, that have stripped-to-their-soul characters: fresh faces, realistic clothing, minimal makeup. None of this I'm a hot spy that solves a crime everyday nonsense.
But I guess that's a rant for another time...
What did you think of Felicity?
P.S. WHY was Elena alive in the last episode?!?
