May. 16th, 2006 @ 12:44 am and yet another real-life soap opera comes to a close
I'm really glad I took some time out from programming to see the last Boredom. I confess that I was growing less and less fond of the show with each episode--at around the point I stopped going I remember telling someone, perhaps unfairly, that the show had finally lived up to its name--but the finale left me pleasantly surprised. It was interesting to see how all the actors had finally grown into their characters--no more floundering around like a bunch of people did at the beginning of the year; just smooth, organic acting. I got the feeling that the characters all knew each other really well (which I suppose is true considering how much time their actors have spent together), and they all talked and thought and gesticulated like real people in ways I'm not sure I've ever seen before. And everyone had accrued an astounding amount of depth. Even the principal and the coach--oh man, that last speech over the intercom nearly brought me to tears. It actually felt like senior year of high school in ways that were not disturbing.

I know, I'm know, I'm not an actor; I have no right to judge. There's just something about that show that brings out the hipster in me. Brought. Past tense. *cries*

Also: Gabby died and no one told me? WTF?

Highlights:

  • Tess's character admitting she knew a thing or two about ghosts (was this a Day of the Night reference?)
  • Principal: "When I was little I used to have nightmares about coming to school in my pajamas. Now, I guess it finally happened."
  • "...and we'll miss the days when we were bored and nothing ever happened..."
  • "...You're screwing with me." "I could."
  • "You don't scare me." (awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww)

    Curse you, Boredom! Every time I hear the acoustic version of that Green Day song, I will want to cry.

    Tell me they didn't close with "Good Riddance." *groans*

    That song epitomizes everything I hated about high school. EVERYTHING.

    ...almost everything.

    No, they played an acoustic version of that song they play in the locker scene of every episode. I forget what it's called.

    I just had a dream about your recent post; the one that you turned your paper in 2 days late. I'd really like to find out whether everything's ok with that, just to ease my mind ^.^

    The song is SULK by radiohead, and the acoustic version - arrangement & recording was performed by Anna & Guy from the cast.
