Love Bites – “Firsts” – review
Most people who tuned into the premiere of Love Bites probably aren’t aware of its tumultuous past. The show was originally going to be in NBCs 10 p.m. slot on Thursdays, but it didn’t get the buzz NBC was hoping for. They pushed it to midseason with no actual start date set. Shows got switched around and put in new slots, but Love Bites remained absent. Eventually it was given a home in the summer burn off section of TV. There were also a lot of production problems, including the departure of a main actress, a pregnancy, and the loss of its showrunner.
With all these problems, it’s no wonder the show turned out to be a bit of a joke. The format for the first episode, titled “Firsts,” involves three unrelated segments that only connect together through the character’s various friendships. These segments are supposed to be feel-good fluff stories, and they constantly lean on overused clichés. The characters are forgettable, as are the jokes, which rely heavily on pop culture–but not in a good way. The only positive thing I can say about the whole episode was Craig Robinson, who managed to be the only person to get a laugh out of me.
It’s a ridiculous show and doesn’t deserve anyone’s attention. I feel bad for the actors who thought this was a good thing to be a part of, especially Jennifer Love Hewitt (who plays an embarrassing version of herself). I don’t plan on watching anymore of Love Bites in the future.
