Show Summary

When their dad took a job in Japan, teenage livewire Holly Tyler (Amanda Bynes) and her straight-laced (twentysomething-year-old) sister, Valerie (Jennie Garth), move in together in New York City . Just when Val thought she had the perfect existence - a promising career in public relations, her own Upper West Side apartment (now Loft), and plenty of eligible men to date - everything in her neatly regimented life started to unravel the minute Holly stumbled through the door. Their new life together will take a lot of getting used to, but Val and Holly's relationship is stronger than ever. In early 2006, when The WB and UPN decided to combine to form a new network known as The CW, the number of WB and UPN shows being ported over to The CW were cut back in order to make room for new programming. This show was one of the many WB shows that suffered as a result of the networks joining, and was canceled in early 2006, and the series finale aired in March, leaving the final season at only 18 episodes. The WB's Broadcast History: September 2002-May 2003 Friday at 8:00pm June 2003-September 2003 Friday at 8:30pm September 2003-December 2003 Thursday at 9:00pm December 2003-May 2004 Fridays at 8:30pm June 2004-March 2006 Fridays at 8:00pm (Simulcast in HDTV starting with episode 23) Theme Song: Lillix's re-recording of The Romantics "What I Like About You" is used in season 1. It has been remixed in Season 2, 3 and 4. The original version (used in season 1) can be found on their album "Falling Uphill".moreless

  • Amanda Bynes - sweet and innocent character

    10
    I really love the Holly and Val sisterhood! that's why What I Like about You has turn out to be the number one on my list when it comes to teen show. I also miss the Amanda Bynes I used to watch before and this show reminds me the innocent and sweet Amanda! Hope she'll come back like what we used to know of her. I bought a DVD copy of this show at memorylanedvd .com which is a really good set - the quality of both audio and video are way better than watching this show on screen years ago! All I can say is, it's good to watch this show again. reminds me of the good old days!moreless

    What I Like about was one of my favorite TV shows before and I must admit that I have become hooked watching it every week. Holy and Val were simply awesome and really hilarious. I used to remember that this is a great start for Amanda Bynes career back then. I really do miss watching this show and as an enthusiastic fan, I've always longed for having a complete DVD collection of this TV series. I take a look on those different websites. There are lots of them but I take a deep research and read some reviews on some of them. I choose to buy this series at memorylanedvd .com . DVDs were shipped promptly and the quality is great! The DVD set I received has all the complete episodes and I'm fully happy because I can watch this funny show all over again.moreless

    I really actually liked this show.
  • 10th Anniversary, but season 1 is way better...

    1.0
    I used to like this show back in 2002-2003 (Season 1) because of Amanda Bynes. But after season 1, the show went downhill very fast. Simon Rex, who played Jeff, left the show for no reason. Wesley Johnathan, who played Gary, was better actor than the girls. As a matter of fact, both Simon and Wesley were considered the best. Season 2 to Season 4 became corny when increasing topics on sex and vulgar and bad jokes. I'm glad this series ended at its 86th episode when that happens. I think Wesley Johnathan can star in a new series since he has better acting and jokes.moreless
  • Too cliche, too corny, not a great show.

    3.0
    I am a fan of Jennie Garth, but not in this show! This show is too corny, too cheesy, too cliche, too boring! You know what's going to happen before it happens. I find myself rolling my eyes more during this show than I ever have in my life. The jokes aren't funny. The acting isn't funny or good. This show is a waste of time! How it lasted four years I don't even know. The whole Vince and Holly thing is played out! Everything they do is so cliche and so already done a million times. Nothing on this show is realistic! How did Val afford her apartment for a year when her business went way south? How can she keep her bakery afloat when there seems to be almost no customers and everything is boring?moreless
