Trivia

The 17th episode of the third season, What I Like About You: Dangerous Liaisons (2005) included many callbacks to Beverly Hills, 90210 (1990) (on which Jennie Garth played Kelly Taylor for all 10 seasons), including Luke Perry (as Todd) mentioning his high school girlfriend Brenda (Perry's character "Dylan" on Beverly Hills, 90210 (1990) dated Brenda Walsh, played by Shannen Doherty), and in a flashback where Todd and Val are talking in their high school, a male extra walks by and Todd addresses him as Brandon (Brandon Walsh was also a character on Beverly Hills, 90210 (1990), played by actor Jason Priestley, who would go on to guest star on What I Like About You (2002) the following season).

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 »

Lots of Slapstick
21 September 2002 | by lzf0See all my reviews

I wasn't expecting much. Just another boring, predictable "talking heads" situation comedy. But this show was different. Amanda Bynes has a background of playing broad comedy on Nickelodeon shows. Jennie Garth is best remembered for playing teen angst on "Beverly Hills, 90210". Inside the silly plot of the pilot, which was similar to an RKO short subject comedy of the 1940s or 1950s, physical comedy abounded. Bynes comes off like a teenaged Lucille Ball and Garth is dragged into the action. No, Garth is no straight women; she handles the physical stuff better than expected. The pilot was a good start. Now only if the writers don't allow the show to get soft and sentimental! Keep the physical comedy coming!
