I'm still waiting.
Now, I've noticed a dramatic shift in Zoey's characterization since the new regime took over the second half of the first season. She went from the sweet, humorous, happy, vulnerable bride-to-be (who wanted "Islands in the Stream" to play at her wedding...dear God) to being a stereotypically angry black woman - lame attempts to maintain her vulnerability notwithstanding.
Even worse, Zoey's fiance went from talking about her often and showering with her affection (not to mention ignoring his mother's petulant objection to his marrying a black woman) to "offering" to bang another woman (bringing up the change in Demetri Noh's characterization...which I'll discuss in another post).
It seems that the new regime has gone "old school." The Old Regime created a vivid, interesting character. As Tami would say, she was more like "the black women I know" and not the black women Hollywood would prefer you think about. The new regime, however, fell back on fucked-up stereotypes when writing her character. This "change", unsurprisingly, has had a profoundly negative affect in fandom. Zoey's name is vanishing from fanfic character lists. She doesn't have her own thread in a certain FlashForward forum of forty topics, even though inquiring minds (aside for mine) have inquired. Furthermore, some of us grew up watching Gabrielle Union and revere her like a goddess. To see a TV show waste her time like this makes our corneas itch.
Secondly, fans want Demetri to leave Zoey and hook up with Janis, and - I'm guessing - somehow "cure" her of her homosexuality. Should something like this actually happen on screen, it would severely damage the positive perception the homosexual community has already developed of Janis. For once they have a strong, professional lesbian who's smart enough to simply go to a sperm bank rather than obsess over finding sperm a la Bette & Tina from The L Word, and Heather & Ally from Australia's Satisfaction.
ABC - we'd really like the Old Regime characters back. Call up the creator, get on your knees and beg, sell your souls to the 21st Century - do whatever the hell you have to do, folks, to get your shit together and bring our loved ones home. I repeat: the casting department did its job. Now it's your turn.
And fans...haul your ass on over to The Blasian Narrative and help revive Old Regime Demetri & Zoey, please.
