One of the biggest television surprises in a long time is What I Like About You. Putting Amanda Bynes and Jennie Garth together in a sit-com was not the sort of thing that sent me running to set a Season Pass on my Tivo. But, I have to admit that the show about opposite sisters sucked me in.
Possibly, and you have to take this in the right way, in much the way that iCarly has sucked me in over the years. Both shows are firmly entrenched in their gimmick, and have a target demographic that doesn’t allow for much crossover, but neither are content to just throw out what will “probably work well enough.” They take chances, stick with their characters, and balance the requisite goofiness with some pretty fantastic writing.

“You are my sister. You’re supposed to drive me crazy.” Twenty-eight-year-old organization freak Valerie Tyler loves her 16-year-old sister Holly. Even if Holly is rambunctious. Spontaneous. Impulsive. Disconcerting. And definitely disorganized. Then Holly moves in with Val, and the sisters discover they may make better siblings than roomies.
Amanda Bynes and Jennie Garth star as the Tylers and Simon Rex and Wesley Jonathan star as two of the men in their lives in this bright, giddy comedy set in Manhattan – and in the hearts of sisters everywhere. Pop some corn and plop on your fuzzy slippers for all 22 Season One Episodes, plus funtastic bonuses. Romance, laughs, family: That’s What I Like About You.
