finished watching the gg reunion after my solo/zoom thanksgiving dinner. late in the final episode, during the protracted steely dan flash mop discussion (the last of many that had me shouting “SHUT UP” at the television), when luke said to lorielei, “you’re exhausting.”
those two words summed up everything i felt about the entire reunion. like viqutorious, i too, “liked some parts.” i just don’t have the energy to spend any time figuring it out.
one final observation:
somewhere in the revival discussion, someone pointed out asp and dp were used to hour episodes and 90 minutes might have been out of their depth. but an hour network show is 42 minutes. so the 90 minutes is actually two full episodes, which would account for the weak story arc and the extended musical interludes — filler that took up time that could have better used been used to more fully develop the characters. ironic that longer the longer episodes felt so “rushed, forced and busy.”
