I am a huge fan of the books. I've been reading for 11 years and love them dearly with a collection of approximately 400. For those of you who have never read the books - please read them before making a judgment.
I grew up with Sweet Valley. Sometimes (I know it's sad) the SVH gang were my closest friends, they were always there. Imagine my delight in looking in my TV guide to see 'Sweet Valley High' I was as high as a kite. It first aired when I was 11. I'd never seen it and was so excited. I saw it. I watched quite a few episodes. Then I realized how much I hated it. I felt it took away all the values and the characters the book series had created. So I stopped watching. When I was 15 it re-aired. At 5:35 am. I remember that I hadn't seen an episode for four long years so I was feeling more open minded. When I got up that morning it felt like Christmas. Watching the episode I was so happy. I realized that yeah, they were different from the books, but last time all I did was sit there and pick faults. This time I just sat and watched. And enjoyed. I saw it for what it really was: a poor effort at a TV show about a brilliant book series. But at least it was an effort. However I must say the Sweet Valley I attended in my heart was the one of the books, not the TV show.
All in all not bad, if you can separate it from the books, otherwise you may hate it.
