Storyline

It all starts the moment shy, beautiful Felicity Porter asks Ben Covington to sign her high school yearbook. It's graduation day... he's gorgeous... and she's had a four-year crush on him. Even though the two have never spoken, what he writes is so insightful, so perfect, it persuades Felicity to change the course of her future. A future defined by medical school and the dreams of her parents. She surreptitiously follows Ben to UNY (the fictional University of New York) and is quickly swept into a romantic triangle that brings both discovery and heartache. Felicity moved to New York to find romance but ends up finding herself. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

For the second season, star Keri Russell cut her long hair short, and the network moved the show to Sunday nights. Ratings declined. The network blamed it on Russell's hair, not the move to Sundays, and required the rest of the cast not to cut their hair. On both sets of DVDs recently released by the WB, it is mentioned numerous times that Felicity cutting her hair was written into the script by Abrams and Reeves. Keri Russell did not do it on her own. See more »

An underrated gem.
25 February 2003 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

I didn't watch Felicity when it originally aired because I was sick of all the WB teen dramas like Dawson's Creek, etc. But to compare this to Dawson's Creek and just write it off as another teen drama would be unfair. This series is a heartfelt look at college life and focuses on many issues we all face when we get out into the real world. The thing that makes this series so good is the characters: loveable, easy to identify with. You really care about these people and they are not sleazy soap opera trash characters. These characters are people you would really love to know if they were real and the actors portraying them are not all supermodels, a big plus. Felicity is of course the title character who follows high school crush Ben all the way to a New York college after giving too much thought to something he wrote in her yearbook. Her impulsive decision is a reminder that we are all vulnerable and confused once we leave the home for the first time and get out on our own. We all can identify with her in some way, even if we didn't make a decision that big. The stories are all well done and done so well that you can really see the creators care what they are putting on the screen. All the common themes of teen drama are twisted here. One other outstanding thing is the music and photography. God, that photography! It's beautiful. Felicity was never a ratings winner and was cancelled after only 4 seasons. But don't let that fool you. It didn't get cancelled because it was a bad show. There are many reasons it went to a swift downfall. I think it was being aired on the wrong network (it was the only mature drama on the WB at that time) and the show was too mature for the usual WB viewers and was skipped over by those who were right for it because of the channel it was on. Nevertheless, sometimes good shows get cancelled. If you want a really good series that takes a different approach to college life and the teen drama, check this out. It stands apart from all the other trash shows like Beverly Hills, 90210 and Dawson's Creek. And just to let you know, I am a guy and I love it, so don't think it's a chick show or anything. Buy the DVD set. It's worth it. Especially if you are the same age as the characters.
