"All good things..." comes to an end




Afternoon in Internetland!

Wanted to drop a quick line since we really haven't in forever. As finals and my thesis ends, I'll be sure to post a lot more about the show, my impressions of it, what it meant to me, and where we're going with the future (trust me, it's better than I had ever anticipated).

This is just to freshen things up, so I want to take the opportunity to thank the entire cast and crew for what turned out to be a kick-ass series and some of the best memories I'll ever have. Cheers to you and yours, and THANK YOU SO MUCH to all the fans and viewers who came to the site and watched our stuff. I even hear some of you watched episode one. You are truly special people...even I don't watch episode one anymore. Kidding.

Back to the thesis,
Woody Tondorf

Great job guys. And love the flutie cameo. All i can say is that they better have "I heart Jesuits" t-shirts available in the bookstore this summer! Best of luck to all the cast and crew in life after BC. Don't stay in LA too long - you'll get soft!

Awesome episode. Ending it with Shiver was just perfect. Like the previous poster, I absolutely loved the Doug Flutie cameo. Once I saw him walk onto the field, I was like, "NO WAY!" Coming from a Jesuit high school, I found O'Hara's AMDG tatoo hilarious. Major props for that. Alright, well, good luck with the future. I'll never forget The BC.

Okay guys. Now I have more time to offer my thoughts on the final episode.

Some spoilers ahead for anyone who hasn’t seen it yet. You’ve been warned.

I must admit you guys succeeded in tugging at the heartstrings a little. Love the ending, where Woody simply walks away, and it's up to the audience to decide where he goes. Also, liked the quick O'hara sighting in the end. He was too kick-ass to simply die anyway. The Flutie cameo was awesome. How fitting that he ended both The BC and his football career pretty much at the same time. He came full circle, so to speak.

I must admit, I never saw the father-son twist coming, I always wondered what the heck was up with Hanlon and the whole Armenian thing. Nice.

Just a few criticisms if I may. First of all, I find it hard to believe that the entire cast and crew did not contain a single pre-med student because the other bone in the lower extremity is called the Fibula, not Fibia. There was an awkward moment when the sports doctor (aka Seb Bonaiuto), walked away from Lukewalker with a piece of tape stuck to his foot. Anyway these are minor problems. I know you guys were working something like 80 hour weeks through all this. So we’ll let it slide. 

Now, please allow me to don my Oscar hat and hand out my best actors of the series awards. Best Actor of The BC goes to Michael Fox as John O’Hara. I’ve never seen an episode of 24, but I can still see the resemblance to Kiefer Sutherland and that’s no small thing. Best Actress goes to Laura Murphy. She has consistently put in really strong performances and seems to bring out the best in Sabia.

Good job to all. I will be checking the news out of Hollywood for the names of Tondorf and Sabia to be mentioned. Good luck at graduation!
