Darker, more serious.
on August 7, 2013
I think the show has moved a step up this season. Annie has matured, as most people do once they are four years into a job. The show is darker, however. Some of the comic relief has disappeared, and the witty banter has decreased.
The loss of the graphic laden, and somewhat cheesy, intro is a positive (though we miss the shots of Piper Perabo). However, the loss of the theme song is lamented. The song had little application (for those who could make out the words) to the early Annie. Now, as she moves into a mature, and more compromising, phase of her career, the song makes sense.
But the show still moves, and is even more engaging. Hopefully, the Annie character will not lose the charm, but simply temper it as appropriate. A great deal of her charm lies in her not diving down the rabbit hole as a person, but learning to compartmentalize. She needs her sister back to provide the bungie that pulls her back out of the hole as needed.
