Re: Out of the list business -- question about 2010s
Good catch, Dan. It's an uneven but enjoyable effort--tough to repurpose an episodic TV show (from "regular TV" just prior to the "Netflix revolution") into a film without sacrificing the specific rhythms that became a sizable portion of its appeal, but it does supply some closure for those who'd followed the original story arc--and, thanks to Kristen Bell, the female take on the "private eye" meme is intact thanks to her acting and narrating talents. A pity that the "FBI version" of her life didn't make it to TV or was used for a film--it had a lot of promise and would have provided a change of pace from the increasingly pat "have-have not" dynamic centered around the swanky beach town location, which moves into sledgehammer mode in the new Hulu series.
