Stars: Becki Newton, Greg Grunberg, Constance Zimmer Writer: Joe Lawson Director: Timothy Busfield Network: NBC, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: June 23, 2011 How did I end up liking LOVE BITES? Let’s just say by brute force! Being chosen to review the show against my will, and hating the premiere episode, I’m now finding it a pretty agreeable and enjoyable summer time filler. The structure of a weekly romantic anthology series didn’t seem like the best idea in the world at first, but since it’s found a way to have a handful of recurring characters and bringing on a great […]Read On »

Stars: Becki Newton, Greg Grunberg, Constance Zimmer Writers: Tracy Poust, Jon Kinnally & David Feeney (“Goodbye Boob,” “Cutlets”), Larry Wilmore & Danielle Sanchez-Witzel (“Ninja Vanish”) Directors: John Scott (“Goodbye Boob,” “Cutlets”), Marc Buckland (“Ninja Vanish”) Network: NBC, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: June 16, 2011 It’s taken two weeks, but the initially dreadful LOVE BITES has grown, just two episodes in, into something quite watchable and sort of entertaining. Yes, you heard me say it – the show is getting better and is attempting to take its love connection stories and actually striving for something a little more complicated, slightly […]Read On »

Stars: Becki Newton, Greg Grunberg, Constance Zimmer Writers: Colleen McGuinness (“Banana Bread”, “Decent Proposal”), Danielle Sanchez-Witzels & Larry Wilmore (“Eyegasms”) Directors: Wendey Stanzler (“Banana Bread”, “Decent Proposal”), Marc Buckland (“Eyegasms”) Network: NBC, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: June 9, 2011 After literally crucifying the series premiere of LOVE BITES last week, I felt that this LOVE, AMERICAN STYLE-type anthology series deserved a second chance. After all, debuts of most TV series that turn out to be great, usually decline after that. In this case, there’s no where to go but up, right? Surprisingly, “How To …” is much better than […]Read On »

TV Review: LOVE BITES – Series Premiere

Stars: Greg Grunberg, Constance Zimmer Writer: Cindy Chupack Director: Marc Buckland Network: NBC, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: June 2, 2011 The good news, the person who greenlit the new NBC anthology romantic comedy series has long since been fired and a new regime is in place. The bad news, I still had to sit through one of the worst hours of television that I will never get back. LOVE BITES has an unfortunate name, because it’s easy to sum up the show in one easy work. It bites. And it bites hard. The idea of a romantic anthology isn’t […]Read On »
