Yeah…I was waiting for the friends forever thing. Wasn’t quite expecting them to completely cut themselves off from the magic rock, though. Not bad…if a tad drastic for what the situation was. I give this ending a low-medium-ish rating in my books. It’s as complete as endings get, I suppose. Unless they come up with a new set of girls, they can’t exactly continue things…the rock’s probably had its run.
It’s a strange series for me as a whole. I seemed to have a lot of problems with it, yet I continued to watch. I wonder if I should make a post about the rock…I’m pretty sure I have a lot to say about it. With my feelings so mixed, what are general impressions of this show? Final Note: I counted 8 repeats, so going through the same day 9 times. Does that count as Endless Eight?
Well…that ending (if you can even call it that) was kinda predictable. Then again, there are two types of endings that allow you to have a second season. The first one is the ending that gives you the satisfaction of a stopping point, but with some facts missing. The second is the type where you create an event that basically has to be continued. I’m actually not sure which one would have been better for this situation. If the ending had left out the zombie bite, I don’t think it would have been so much better. I mean…what was really accomplished in this first season? Got the father off their case? That’s it?
I may even argue that the zombie bite was the better of the two options. The simple explanation is that it gives the impression that whole “zombie” thing hasn’t been forgotten. But there’s a problem with this. I’ve seen no indication of the second season…so are they just teasing us with an even longer wait? Unless it magically shows up in the fall season somehow, it looks like the case.
Putting that aside, though, this show was a pretty interesting experience (if you completely block out the zombie fetish bit like I did). It was fun for me to ponder the biological implications of a reanimated corpse (as illogical as it is). I’m actually considering a post to go over most of the stuff I came up with while I was watching. But even if I don’t I’ll still review the show as a whole later on.
