LOVE BITES “Sky High” Review

LOVE BITES "Sky High" Season 1, Episode 4 – Thanks to this episode of Love Bites, I’ve got "On the Wings of Love" stuck in my head. I don’t even know how the rest of the song goes, so in the first segment, "Sunday Fun Day," I was surprised by how many people in that church knew all the lyrics well enough to join in on the spontaneous musical number. Music aside, there really wasn’t too much in the way of plot in this segment. Dan shows up – with his ponytail miraculously reattached – he and Judd get high, Judd convinces Colleen to get stoned and then hilarity ensues as they cope with hanging around Judd’s family at a christening. Pretty predictable stuff and if not for Judd and Colleen being super cute and funny, this segment would actually be kind of boring.

The second segment, "Kiss and Tell" used Annie’s younger sister to pull a high school story into a series that has largely been about adult relationships. It started off about about Christy, but very quickly became about Josh and his friends. Instead of rushing to fit everything in, "Kiss and Tell" would probably have worked better as two 14 minute segments where we could spend more time with those two characters and address their stories as separate plots that end up tying together.
