FR00 – Introduction – Felicity
This episode is our introduction to the series. We’ll discuss what drew us to the series for the first time, the cast and what impact the show has had on us as individuals and on the TV culture. Next week we will start an episode-by-episode watching of the series and we’d love to have you join us on the long journey! We’ll include details at the end of the show for how you can get in touch with us to send in feedback or to volunteer as a guest!
Segment 1: Let’s start by sharing what drew us to the series for the first time…
Segment 2: Let’s now talk about the show itself. The show aired from 1998-2002 on the WB Network and launched the careers of many young Hollywood stars. It was created by JJ Abrams and this was his first television show! His next show was Alias, and that is also being reviewed on this network! Of course, today everyone knows who JJ Abrams is. He’s gone on to produce several TV series, including Lost, Fringe and Person of Interest, just to name a few and has produced many films including the Star Trek reboot trilogy and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, just to name a few.
The cast is really fantastic, and 15 years ago when the show premiered many of them were not well known. Several have since gone on to other roles.
Keri Russell as Felicity Porter
Scott Speedman as Ben Covington
Amy Jo Johnson as Julie Emrick
Tangi Miller as Elena Tyler
Scott Foley as Noel Crane
Amanda Foreman as Meghan Rotundi
Greg Grunberg as Sean Blumberg
Ian Gomez as Javier Quintata
Segment 3: Finally, let’s talk about the lasting effect the show has had on us and on the tv culture.
