I was quite young when my parents bought an answering machine. If we missed a call and they didn’t leave a message, then it wasn’t important.
You lobbied for Luann to do something exciting. You didn’t lobby for this. You’re not responsible for G&K’s bad writing.
Because we weren’t made to believe they went through with it and then told they didn’t. The disappointment isn’t because Luann didn’t go though with the jump. It’s because we were made to believe she did, and then told she didn’t.
Was that even part of Luann’s story? From what I saw, the story was just about the jump. The part about Tara and Piro bailing on Luann and not telling her actually happened.
Yeah, but I’d have been happier if I were wrong. It was a let down.
Nevertheless, not jumping out of a plane is the new jumping a shark. Their writing is getting stale.
I wouldn’t go that far. If they hated her, they’d pass the strip on to someone else. The more likely reason is they’re just getting stale.
Because the moment for that had already passed.
Luann paid a nonrefundable fee to jump, then chickened out like her friends did. She gave the jump to Frank because she was out the money no matter what. Unless he agreed to pay her back for the jump before he accepted it, he doesn’t owe her a dime.
True, personal growth doesn’t come from thrill seeking, but nobody’s saying that. She had a chance to overcome her fear, but instead backed out. That itself wouldn’t be so bad, but it was presented to the readers that she went through with it and then we were told she didn’t.
