The series revolved around the fictional college experiences of the title character, Felicity Porter, as she attended the "University of New York", based on New York University, across the country from her home of Palo Alto, California. The show ran for four seasons from 1998 to 2002, with each season corresponding to the traditional freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior years students attend at universities. The series was created by J. J. Abrams and Matt Reeves. It was a good show with a decent premise. Controversy was typically based upon Felicity's hair change in one of the seasons. Good show overall and received a Golden-Globe.
