What I Like About You

What I Like About You
What I Like About You tells the story of Valerie "Val" Tyler and her younger sister, Holly Tyler. Val Tyler (Jennie Garth) is an uptight taskmaster who is very organized and somewhat neurotic. Holly (Amanda Bynes) is a rambunctious and narcissistic teenager who doesn't want to move to Japan where her father has a new job, arranging instead to move into her older sister Val's apartment in New York City. The show featured two strong sisters who love each other. They have equally loyal friends (Val's Lauren and Holly's Gary, or in later episodes Tina, for example). A key theme of the series is the Tyler sisters' exploits in love. Val's boyfriend Jeff (Simon Rex) seen in the first season was one of four love interests. She was briefly attracted to two of her bosses Vic (Dan Cortese) and later Peter (Stephen Dunham). Valerie was later engaged to an old flame, Rick, and later got married to Vic after a drunken night in Atlantic City. Holly's first love interest was Henry (Michael McMillian). She later dated Ben (David de Lautour) before hooking up with her true love Vince (Nick Zano). One constant, though, was their love for each other.
