Once and Again

Post by Guest » Aug 12th 2003, 10:22 pm

did any of u guys watch Once and Again, it was a herskovitz, holzman, Zwick, Winant show. It was good, there were some MSCL moments. Julia Whelan has some Angela in her, and Shane West is hot! I miss it, i didn't watch much (it was my parents favorite show, as was MSCL which they introduced to me-i was too young and missed it the first time around, and before that thirtysomething) I watched the third season though. The kids in that show were great. Zoe was a lot like danielle. I wish there was another show made by those people

I've just finished watching the final episode of "Once And Again" - and ohmygod, that was touching. The final scenes where everyone talks about their experience on the show was fantastic. I'm sure there's so much more stuff in their archives from that interview session which would make great DVD bonus stuff. Season 3 was a very good season - but I didn't like the "happy endings" of some of the episodes, how everything always turned out well at the end of an episode. Felt almost like "7th Heaven" in some scenes.

The storylines with Grace and Mr.Dimitri were so amazingly MSCLish, the storylines would have fit perfectly in an MSCL episode. (Well, they were written by Winnie Holzman). The same goes for the Jessie/Katie relationship - it was perfectly written and acted. It so sad that we'll never know how Karen, Rick, Lily and the rest of the family would react to Jessies homosexuality...

The episode with Karen's accident was an example for a perfectly written and directed TV episode. Edward Zwick directed it and it kinda reminded me of the famous "The Body" episode from "Buffy". And again, Jessie (Evan Rachel Wood) - what an amazing performance throughout the entire three years!


As for new Bedford Falls Productions - I'm pretty sure that they will do a new tv show sometime. Zwick & Herskovitz do still have a contract with ABC as far as I know and they have to produce at least one more pilot to complete the contract. What's TV worth without Bedford Falls? ;-) But both have been very busy lately with the new Tom Cruise movie "The Last Samurai" coming out and Winnie Holzman is currently producing a play on Off-Broadway if I remember correctly. Maybe we'll see a new Bedford Falls show in fall 2004.

Just for the record:

UNTITLED BILLY CAMPBELL PROJECT (FOX, New!) - The former "Once & Again" star has inked a talent holding deal with the network to topline a drama project targeted for fall 2004. It's not clear if FOX will build a project from scratch for Campbell or if they will place him in an existing series in development.
