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
In 1999, a publicly hyped young writer for the show, Riley Weston, was revealed as a deceiver because she claimed to be much younger than she really was. At the age of 32, she began to market herself to TV studios as a recent high school graduate, posing her husband as her older brother. She was soon hired by the WB Network as a writer for Felicity. Praised as a young writer, she appeared on Entertainment Weekly in the 1998 list of "100 Most Creative People in Entertainment," which described her as an up-and-coming nineteen-year-old. Shortly thereafter, she was offered a six-figure scenario writing arrangement with Disney. Her real identity and age became visible after a Felicity producer checked her social security number. Shortly thereafter her contract with WB expired and was not renewed, and her deal with Disney fell through. See more »

I gave blood last month, and I had zero contact with anybody, and I have a card. So that means, medically, that I am safe sex material.
Wow. Okay, so, uh...

So, uh, when do you want to do this?
I don't want to rush it.
No, no, okay. Um, how about tonight?

I got lab tomorrow.

I originally thought this was another "Dawson's Creek" type teensploitation series. I was pleasantly surprised when I laughed myself silly at this extremely well written, well acted and often touching show. Felicity Porter is a much more realistic neurotic than Ally McBeal could dream to be and far more relatable. Did I mention the show is hilarious??? Example: Felicity's boyfriend has just had a fight with his brother upon finding out he is gay and planning a commitment ceremony with a man named Alex. The two siblings storm out leaving Felicity and Alex at the table alone. Felicity meekly offers "I'm marrying a gay guy too." (her gay boss has asked her to marry him so he can get a green card). It may sound far fetched but well-conceived scenes like this will have you rolling. Watch it!
