Felicity: Pilot helps to mark the WB's final broadcast
18 September 2006 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Sunday, September 17, 2006, marked the official last night of the WB network. It was marked by showing pilots of the following shows: Felicity, Angel, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Dawson's Creek. Felicity is the story of a high school graduate who decided to go to college in New York after a boy she barely knew as a teenager signs something in year book after graduation that makes her change plans that were decided by her parents. So there she meets high school crush Ben (Scott Speedman), as well as new best friend Julie (Amy Jo Johnson) and resident adviser Noel (Scott Foley). She also has a weird roommate named Megan (Amanda Foreman) and sends messages on tape to former French tutor Sally (voice of Janeane Garofolo). A good start to a mostly realistic show about college life and its good and bad times. Written by J. J. Abrams and directed by Matt Reeves, the shows creators and executive producers, they picked fresh-faced Keri Russel for the title role and she is perfect in showing the character's uncertainty and eventual acceptance of New York living, 2,000 miles from her hometown of Palo Alto, Calif. A worthy show that helped put WB on the map, it's as good a start as any to mark WB's farewell broadcast. Here's to you, Felicity Porter!
