    I'll preface this review by saying that I do not watch "What I Like...", and caught it while channel surfing.

    This show, being on ABC (Family), is obviously aimed at teenagers. So, you might understand my dismay at having seen a young woman, despondent over something having to do with her wedding dress, or lack thereof, and walking upstairs to her room (presumably), and then being followed by her "friend" who brings a bottle of liquor to calm down the girl.

    I drink. I see nothing wrong with adults drinking responsibly. But, to do so on a show whose actors are barely out of their teens is not only unnecessary, but is reprehensible that the producers, directors, and writers, much less the actors, would stoop to this purposely shocking bit. The fact that they just as easily have substituted ice cream or chocolates for the liquor, banal as that is, shows that they purposely went for the shock value.

    Shame on the show!moreless
  • Val's dressmaker dies shortly before the wedding. When Holly tries to find her dress, she discovers Rick eating pizza with Julie.

    This episode was funny, but it wasn't the best. The best parts of this episode were when Vince was forced to take his sweater off and use seduction to get the information they needed XD I felt sorry for him after he "sweet-talked" the woman in the thrift store XD And I can't believe Rick actually visited Julie just 2 days before his wedding! What was he thinking! If I were Holly, I would have moved aside and shown Val what Rick was doing. She could have marched right over there and demanded to know what was going on. But Holly tried to ease her pain and hide the truth.moreless
  • Gittle dies.

    Wow, did not expect this. Gittle dying? That was so unexpected. What was very unexpected in this light episode is Rick eating pizza with Julie!? That was a perfect fill in for this episode. I like how Vince has to show off his muscles to get a dress. He still doesn't get it. That is just classic. Anyways, the end with the girl who is about to get married also filled in perfectly. I like all the adventures the gang go through to get the dress. I also like to see Holly being protective of her sister when she confronts Rick. Perfect. Too bad Tina wasn't in it.moreless
  • I liked it a lot!

    When Gittle, Val's dressmaker, dies, the dress is given to a thrift store. Holly, Gary, Ben and Vince go to the store to get it, but it is sold. They get the address. Holly sees Rick at a pizza place with Julie. Val is totally freaking out about her wedding. Holly has a dilema, whether to tell Val about Rick and Julie. The new owners of the dress don't want to give it up. Rick tells Holly that Julie called him for closure. Later, Nikki, the wedding dress owner, decides to give it back to Val. Val then gives it back as an act of kindness!

    This was a great episode! I'm glad that Val was kind and gave back the dress! I recognized Tamara Mello from 7th Heaven and Boy Meets World! This episode gets a 9.5 out of 10 from me!moreless
