Did You Know?

Trivia

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 »

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 »

Quotes

Val: We don't have to resort to using our bodies to get ahead
Lauren: Wake up Bambi! This is how things work in the forest.
Val: Not in my forest... and don't make that dirty.

A mixture of traditional fare and brilliant acting
21 September 2003 | by (WGC, Herts, England (born Sandfly, Ga)) – See all my reviews

The premise and scripting of WILABT are both reasonable, and compared to many comedies out there, they're excellent. However, by the standards of Friends, Everybody Loves Raymond and Frasier, this is a distinctly average show.

What makes me watch it every time it's on are Amanda Bynes and Wesley Jonathon. Jonathon is a great character actor, and livens up what could be a dull character (the "Best Friend"). The part of Henry is excellently written, which surprised me, as the Val and Jeff characters are both weak.

But as I said above, Amanda Bynes makes this a good show. Easily the most talented teen on television, and in the top 10, whatever age, of current times, she's a great asset to the show. Rubber faced, with what could be described as a "beauty in repose", she takes a part that's been poorly-written, with physical humour that could easily look horrible, and makes it funny.

What America may have found here is a true star - not a mildly talented actress like Lindsay Lohan who has the scripting to make her a star, or a "piece of ass" (to quote one critic) like Hillary Duff...but a true superstar. Long make she reign as Queen of Teens.
