I'll definitely check out the online episodes and behind the scenes stuff, I'd love to learn more about why they changed the things they changed. Re: the double spoiler, he was. I really need to read it, because I'm unclear on what's Mr. Nancy v Spider v Charlie, not to mention how that is colored by who's describing whom.
OOHHH YESS I love that angle on Ostara! That makes total sense! Like I said, I don't dislike the character (or actor or portrayal) I just wish we got to meet the book version of her at some point too. I won't hold my breath for it, and I'm sure there's a million other untold stories that should be told first, but I'd like to see that version of her in a Coming To America segment.
Also I would watch Coming to America as a standalone series. Even like a youtube web series. MOAR PLZ
