Did You Know?


For over half of the first season, Jennie Garth was pregnant. Most of her scenes only showed the top half of her or showed her sitting down, behind a couch, etc. See more »


In the first season, the door next to Val's door is proven useless. Her apartment is too widely spaced for that door to lead to a neighboring apartment, and it's entrance would have been covered up by a large wooden dresser. See more »

What I like about "What I Like About You"
12 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While I would say I enjoy the show, I expected something completely different from when I first saw 'What I like about you' I expected to find something along the lines of 'All That' (I am not sure if it is going on anymore) but I have to say I do like the show and while i don't classify it as a breakthrough show, it is very charming and I do like the chemistry between the characters as well (including the supporting cast)

I would definitely say that it is great to see Wesley Jonathan back on the screen because I really loved him in City Guy. I had also seen the woman who plays Valerie's friend in Popular and while I think that was an okay show, I do not really like her character in this show because she's just not my cup of tea but she rounds it out pretty well
