Exploring the art of storytelling.
“Kimmy Goes to School!” was filled with some great lines. One example was when Titus said, “This idea came to me in a dream last afternoon.” It added to his character. Another line was when Kimmy said, “You touched a boy and made him a man,” to Mr. Lefkovitz. I was already suspicious of Mike Stampone’s comment in the yearbook, so that line became a very dark joke.
Titus’ song, “Pinot Noir” is so horrible, but so catchy. That will definitely be stuck in my head for days.
Dylan Gelula (Xanthippe) had a poor performance in “Kimmy Goes to School!” She acted a bit too snobby. Her voice and annunciation sounded like a stereotypical teenager. She became a caricature. Also, Xanthippe gave in too easily when Titus and Lillian threatened to tell her father about the party. And it wasn’t believable; I thought Xanthippe was tougher than that. At the end of “Kimmy Goes to School!” we watched Xanthippe refuse a drink from her friends. This made the episode feel like a lesson to teenagers. It was heavy-handed.
