I loved Janice. She was so funny and indeed made Fiona Fiona again.
She's very watchable.
I think the mark of a good character is that you can put them with any other character or any combination of characters and it creates an exciting energy. This is certainly the case with Janice. None of the other characters are indifferent to her and it's fun to try to work out what other characters are "thinking" about her during their reactions. Just last night I watched a scene with Janice and Wayne, and it occurred to me that even Wayne became more interesting during their shared screen time.
Any scene in which she appears is more entertaining for her presence.
I met Rima a couple of times in the early 00s. Such a cool woman. We hit it off the moment I mentioned I like her in S&D.
That's great. Cool is the word that comes across in interviews. I'd love to know more about how you came to meet.
I quite liked Debbie and Craig aswell, infinitely better than 1985s wave of tepid new youngsters.
Craig has just arrived. We'll see what I think of him and Debbie this time round.
It feels settled again lighter, the dark and lost tone of 85 gone.
Absolutely. It feels like there's a conscious effort that's gone into changing the tone and making some casting choices that are a bit more interesting.
Alyce Platt left to be co-host on Sale of the Century. She was on that for several years.
I believe it's what she's best known for to most people. I imagine it helped that she had the history of working on a Grundy series.
