Random Observation

As I am deciding whether to keep this blog, I have become addicted to the ABC Family Show “The Fosters.”  I have my issues with the show, which I may or may not write about, but nevertheless it is highly entertaining.  But one thing recently struck me; the terrific Maia Mitchell, who plays the central character Callie Jacobs, so much resembled Linda Cardellini from her “Freaks and Geeks” days.  I’m not comparing the two shows, “Freaks and Geeks” was, despite only having one season, one of the most perfect shows ever to air on television, and “The Fosters,” despite its addictive quality, has a very strong tendency to repeatedly dive into needless melodrama.  But Mitchell’s Callie not only looks like Lindsay Weir, she has many of the same mannerisms.  Put her in an army jacket (please, someone, make it happen!) and it would be like Lindsay reborn.
