USA (ended 2014)
what the...? 11 to 5 in favor of MAGGIE?!? i'll give lawson a chance but still...
Anne dudek is way better. big mistake on the part of the writers. BIG mistake...
just my opinion.
I highly doubt this was the fault of the writers. Sounds to me like maybe she didn't test well with test audiences or maybe producers found her unlikable. Doubtful that the writers were the ones to get rid of her.
|I never liked the detective in the pilot, so I was happy when she didn't stick around for long. Plus Shawn needs a love interest, and the first was already taken by the dufus detective.|
I liked Anne Dudek, but I'm liking Maggie Lawson better. But I think they're giving Maggie more of a chance to shine. After all, Anne was only in the pilot, and she wasn't even in it all that much. They didn't really give her a chance. Maggie's character is taking a bigger role than Anne's because they obviously plan to hook O'Hara up with Shawn.
Some people just don't test well. People are replaced in shows all the time. Carol on "Friends" was recast after the first episode she was in. Jane Sibbet played her in every episode but that first one that Carol was in, and I think she did much better than the original actress. That's just how things go. They have to think about the show and the chemistry between the actors.
Also, never fault the writers.

(after Juliet refuses to give Shawn and Gus the case file)
Gus: I liked the other girl better.
Shawn (smiling): Not me...
Guess we know which one Shawn prefers, huh?
When I was watching it and that part happened, I immedietly thought of this thread, and I'm like, well that helps that argument.
