The 'Felicity' Pilot Is More Unhinged Than That Haircut

It was the haircut seen — and loathed — around the world. After scoring great ratings and reviews in its first season, J.J. Abrams' Felicity made a choice more shocking than any twist seen on Lost: producers decided Keri Russell should cut her famous long, curly hair, shooting ratings down straight into a Dharma hatch.

But there's something even more shocking about Felicity: just how unhinged the series was in the first place. In our latest episode of TV. Watch. Repeat., my co-host Allison Piwowarski and I revisit the pilot and the history of the series, and deeply question Felicity's life decisions. Plus, we find out about Abrams' high school inspiration for the show, and how a harmless prank nearly killed the series altogether.

So grab your oversized cardigan and enjoy the story of Felicity on our latest episode of TV. Watch. Repeat. on Apple, Spotify, or wherever you listen to podcasts. And be sure to check out our other pop culture podcast, Pop Chaser, for all your entertainment headline needs!
