Now I couldn't have said it better myself Bravo ;D
Um Alex Ron didn't have to say that (what you brilliantly wrote ) because all that is implied in the last scenes. You're kind of describing the last sequences of the finale, though the characters didn't explicitly say so themselves. To the horror of non K/R fans it wasn't really that subtle.
And what's to stop Ron from panicking AGAIN once he's reminded of this situation. Remember the airport scene in part 1, of the man and woman leaving each other, what's to stop Ron from worrying when he's reminded of something like that AGAIN, nothing because the college plot was unresolved, and no Mystical (God out of the machine) monkey powers are going to resolve this problem.
It's not that I needed to see them AT COLLEGE. Heck they could've shown us a scene where Ron's parents give him his college acceptance letters as a graduation present, and that these same colleges are one's that Kim has applied for. LIKE I've suggested MANY TIMES.
I mean for crying out loud, HOW HARD CAN IT POSSIBLY BE to record, and storyboard, 30-45 seconds of this plot resolution. Was it REALLY necessary that we HAD to show Bonnie rushing to cry in Junior's arms. You could've dumped THAT scene and added the one I suggested, EASILY.
As long as the VIP's had the power to insert this scene, I'M NOT LETTING THAT PLOT GAP SLIDE.
The fact that one of the God's who created Kim Possible, Bob Schooley has declared anything off screen to be not canon. Also gets on my nerves.
And almost has me wishing that So The Drama would've been the end of the series, because THAT ending trumps this one. Not only that but the ending with Kim and Ron at the end at the dance was both subtle AND informative something this ending WAS NOT.
-Ron didn't unlock anything, his MMP's came at the most convenient moment, JUST LIKE THEY ALWAYS HAVE. The powers were treated as a god out of the machines. It's another thing the VIP's should've handled alot better.
-Kim reassured Ron MANY times throughout and yet that didn't stop him from worrying DID IT? And YET suddenly Ron gets over this, and the audience is given no organic reason as to WHY he has this change of heart. THAT resolution wasn't convincing in the slightest EITHER.
Really Graduation (like Superman Returns) builds up a moment through exposition, that we the audience are not allowed to witness.
Because by the time Ron comes crashing down to reality, he'll realize that he still has no way of getting to college, back to square one . And I wasn't given any exposition, story wise that THIS won't be an issue in the future.
RENDERED IRRELEVANT, when was the college issue in the story irrelevant? The ending to the episode just refused to answer the question, that doesn't make it irrelevant. The writing at the end, just ARROGANTLY ASSUMES that viewers will accept the ending because the characters LOOK HAPPY, but they make no CHARACTER TRANSITIONS.
And if the college issue wasn't that big a deal, than why did the writers make such a BIG DEAL out of it constantly throughout the two parter?
WHERE? Show me the scene THAT SHOWS US, that Ron comes to THIS realization. There's no scene to be found like that in here.
Offtopic: Cadmus I'm curious but have you ever seen a Coen Bros. movie?
Yes I've seen one of them, but I didn't care for it.
Oh fyi yvj, I meant to respond to you on this awhile ago, but never got back to it, until now.
Has it occurred to you that everyone pretty much has closure on the finale (not to mention the show itself) except for you?
But if you want that ever-elusive sense of closure, here, I'll help.
College = threat to K/R
Alien warlords = threat to world
threat from aliens > threat from college
Ron PWNS aliens therefore Ron > threat from aliens
K/R = Kim + Ron therefore K/R > threat from aliens > threat from college
therefore K/R > threat from college
There ya go.
