The mighty GKarsEye has seen Jeremiah, and it is good.
I got all escited when I watched the first episode and the credits said, "Created by J Michael Straczynsky." Yeah, baby!
It's also great to see a JMS show with the following three things:
I now understand why JMS wasn't too heartbroken over losing the Rangers show. He gets a series with star power and more freedom than he would have with Rangers.
Theo Huxtible is all growed up!
They named a character "Theo," which was annoying, because Warner is "Theo" to my mind. Perhaps they did this on purpose, forcing me to not think of Warner as Theo anymore.
As you may have expected, the mighty GKarsEye never watched a single moment of Berverly Hills 90210, so Luke Perry isn't typecast for me. From now on, while the rest of the world will think of him as Dylan (and I only know that name because my girlfriend told me), he will be Jeremiah to me.
The episode with Jason Priestly was great, due in no small part to Priestly himself.
And the woman behind the glass is absolutely stunning!
I think it's pretty obvious that Jeremiah's parents were directly involved with the virus somehow, and that Jeremiah has some important connection to the whole story other than just happening to run into the right crowd.
I also see the seeds of a possible rivalry between Jeremiah and Kurdy. Jeremiah gets more of the credit and attention- from the waitress in the first episode, from Priestly's character, from the children in the Red Kiss, etc. Kurdy has already made it a point to bring attention to how he's "pulling his weight." At some point, he may get sick of being the sidekick.
Anyway, this post serves as warning to y'all: I am here.
Unfortunately, I'll probably not watch these episodes as they air, because it's on at a Friday night. Ugh. I probably won't watch them until Sundays or something.
