Exploring the art of storytelling.
In most sitcoms, whenever a character undergoes a big change, there is usually an episode filled with flashback montages trying to make the audience feel nostalgic. To be honest, I think those types of episodes are just a waste of time. Since “The Show Must Go On” was about Brick’s middle school graduation, there were a few flashback montages, but they were different from those in most sitcoms. Each time a character had a flashback about Brick, he or she would be interrupted. It was actually pretty funny and allowed for us to reminisce without becoming too nostalgic or losing the main storyline of the episode.
I thought it was hilarious that when Frankie asked Brick about his school day, he just listed the movies he watched in each class. I could easily relate to this. The last week of school, we would always watch movies in class.
