A strange extension of the movie
4 June 2013 | by jdollakSee all my reviews

Linda talks about her engagement to Doug in class. There is a push from her friends to meet him. Damone starts a rumor that Mr. Hand has a glass eye. Everyone seems to believe it, and the stories start getting exaggerated.

I'm getting really confused. During the Pilot episode, Linda is broken up with Doug. This is made more confusing by the fact that they had broken up by the end of the movie. I could probably deal with the TV show breaking continuity with the movie, but this is only three episodes in, and it's not consistent with itself.

I have some mixed feelings about how this story plays out. Linda's relationship with Doug was always supposed to be fishy, but it's actually a disappointment to have a conclusion to that story. Keeping the mystery from the movie would have been a little difficult to sustain over the course of a series, I guess.

This was an improvement on the prior episodes as well. The storyline with Mr. Hand is very charming, and I have a suspicion that the rest of the series will manage to get these stories right, even if they never get the other characters.
