Trivia

The layout of the loft changes from season 2 to season 3. In season 2 the door is up on the riser. In season 3 the riser is beside the door and there is a huge fan on the wall where the door was in season 2. See more »

Goofs

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 DON'T I Like About It?
1 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

Great. Show.

Simon Rex does very well as Val's caring, 'frustrated', & kinda dumb boyfriend Jeff. Wesley Jonathan (City Guys) also capably handles his role as Holly's friend Gary.

Then the REAL stars. Jennie Garth was arguably the single most talented cast member of 90210, so it's good to see her in something that's actually watchable now. She does a great job as Val, and is much funnier than most predicted she'd be.

Amanda Bynes. What more can I say? She's (literally) the reason this show was created, she plays the main character Holly perfectly, she's one of the best physical comediennes still living today, she's funny, she's a gifted actress, she's very down-to-earth and normal off-screen, she's smart, she's a great improvisor, and she's beautiful. What more could someone ask for?

My only problem is that they should've used the original song for the opening; otherwise, the show's superb.

This show is well-written, well-acted (of course), well-premised (if that's even a word), and well-casted (duh, it's Amanda). I can't wait for next week's episode, and I encourage all of you to watch.
