Anna was more of a jet setter...very over the top...yet at the same time...subtle. she and calliope were a fun friendship...and showed Anna could be grounded.
I think current writers forget that the 80s were larger then life...but it wasn't played up as such back then...back then, it was how life was and was played serious and not like a bad joke. It seems like any writer wanting to resurrect a character from the 80s...makes them so OTT that u wonder how they can dress themselves.
Jill is going to have her own story soon. If it is anything like Lauren's story or the rest its a disaster just waiting to happen.....I have no faith in Sussman to write a compelling story for any of these characters.
