And then we've come full circle because isn't that the unofficial motto of the show-- "all is not as it seems". How many times have we heard that over the last few seasons?Originally Posted by wonderintern;3339903;
No matter how it plays out, Fleiss & Co shot ABC in the foot based on how they edited the show. Melissa has been front-and-center the entire show; they showed her, more than once, saying that she's "unlucky in love" and is always the dumpee. Perhaps... their intention was that they would use those quotes as foreshadowing for the ultimate ending.
However... as they have proven in the past... they have absolutely no insight into how the 'average viewer' perceives the show. And instead of foreshadowing the breakup, they helped viewers to fall more in love with Melissa and to champion her in her quest for her 'fairy tale ending'.
If I were ABC, I would give whoever wrote the storyline/edited for the last few seasons their pink slips. Matt & Shayne made a pretty 'fairytale'; however, most of us could all see through it. Deanna & Jesse-- well, after their editing, the majority of us were thinking "Jesse????" because we really didn't know who he was and how he got to be F1. Now, they've set Melissa up to have her fairytale story, when, in fact it could be Molly who ultimately ends up with it. If that's the case, then they should've pulled back on Melissa and played up Molly more.
I admit, I'm curious to see how this all ends. That being said, they've lost me from here on out. I've got House and Gossip Girl, 24 and Heroes that I'd rather be watching instead of taping.
