A sad change of character.
on May 8, 2014
The series continues to have decent writing and dialogue, and the awkward title is fulfilled through the episodes.
However, without going in a spoiler-ific direction, the character development in the show makes me sad. Jenna's path is slowly becoming a non-sympathetic path, Ming is becoming even more stereotyped, and Tamara is slicing from an eccentric outsider to a generic wanna-be.
Not that it all happens at once, but the writing's on the wall, and several characters are writen into making choices that don't seem in keeping with previous seasons. I suppose sometimes you have to invent drama to keep a show fresh, but the conflicts are not as effortless as they were.
Still a fun season (half) and I'll watch the rest hoping that the show returns to the sort of effortless awkward that the first two seasons had.
