4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Show--mediocre DVD, August 3, 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Felicity - Freshman Year Collection (The Complete First Season) (DVD)
I have loved the show since it first appeared on the WB. Second only to Buffy in terms of watchability, I was thrilled when the DVDs came out. However, as noted in other reviews, the DVD quality isnt the best nor are there many special features. The thing that bothered me the most was the change in soundtrack. Great songs like Eagle Eye Cherry's Save Tonoght, Kate Bush's Woman's Work (on the soundtrack), Some Sarah and Jewel among others have been edited out and replaced with what I think is Amy Jo Johnson's own music. The sountrack to this series was what made it amazing, all the thought that went into every seen. Amy Jo deserves accolades for her musical career, but not at the expense of what was formerly a flawless TV soundtrack. The rape episode in particular suffered greatly in meaning without the strong voices of many female vocalists now replaced with Johnson. The scene where Julie finally goes to a counselor was amazing with This Woman's Work in the background; the closing seen with Julie reading Zach's letter used to have Jewel's Absense of Fear as the closing notes. Even the sighs in the song had been choreographed to match Julies own intakes of breath. Her own songs just dont have the same power. I wish there was a way I could have the original episodes back. These are good, as the show is amazing, but I feel very dissapointed with the changes.

I had never seen the show in its original form, and while I can understand that someone might miss the original songs, I think the stuff they used to replace it was pretty good. (It wasn't all Amy Jo Johnson's stuff)
