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

Quotes

Meghan: This is how I know Felicity still likes you. You ready?
Ben Covington: Yeah. Wha... what is it?
Meghan: Sarah McLachlan.
Ben Covington: What?
Meghan: When Felicity showed up last year, head over heels for you, Sarah McLachlan was all she listened to. If "Fumbling Towards Ecstasy" wasn't in the CD player, it was only so "Solace" could get a little airplay. I started calling it 'Ben music'... not to her face but behind her back. But then it went away, and I thought Sarah was gone for good. I almost started celebrating. And then you showed up ...

User Reviews

Yawn.
6 July 2000 | by Nuala SSee all my reviews

No matter how hard I try, I cannot get into this show. The cast are, in general, quite talented and appear to understand their characters. Unfortunately, their characters are, well, boring. I'd prefer to watch a group of my own friends run around in a field for an hour. At least that may entertain me for more than five seconds.

I mentioned earlier that the actors are quite talented, but I hasten to add that none are great shining lights, good enough to break through the severe repetition of each episode. The quirky moments the characters enter or find themselves embroiled in simply do not work. In a quality youth-orientated show, such as that gem "Press Gang" (although I'm aware it's ridiculous to compare this TV show with most of today's attempts at that genre), the actors have the ability and the instinctive comic flair to make these silly moments work. The actors on Felicity take themselves too seriously, as though they're afraid they won't be nominated for an Emmy if they crack a smile. Instead it's a wrinkle of the nose and a roll of the eyes. You can tell that these guys are ultra mature.

Worst of all perhaps are Felicity's 'reflective' moments. The same thing, week in, week out, sometimes more than once an episode: Felicity leaves the college (or is it the halls of residence?), the film is slowed. A boring acoustic guitar/female singer number is played over the top. This is sickening stuff. It seems that life only runs on normal time inside the walls of the college or the dorms. The rest of the city must have broken watches.

As Colin Matthews of 'Press Gang' would put it: "Boredom City"
