Is It Any Good?

Even if Love Bites' frustrating "anthology" format worked, an entire hour is way too long, and there's a surprising lack of laughs for that much screen time.

It's also strange that, in spite of the 10 or so characters viewers meet in the first episode (including the ever-reliable Craig Robinson of The Office), the show's website warns that only three of them are permanent. (And, we'll tell you right now: It's not the best three.) So forget about love; the only thing that really bites here is the concept.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
