  • What I Like About You... is not your bad advice.

    Posted on 05/17/2010 by Mary

    Friends. They try to help. We ask for advice, and they give it, and sometimes they do a really good job! Yay friends doing a good job! And then sometimes.. . they are kind of yappity know-it-alls who lead us down the path of destruction, embarrassment, and bad romance moves.

    Remember that time that cute- but-daft guy that Val was dating tried to tell Holly that Penn Badgley was super into her and that she needed to "set him free" before he had even asked her out or anything? (Tonight, 10pm et, btw.) And then Penn Badgley was all "omg, ego, I wasn't even into you!" (Though, actually, he was, but still, pretty bad advice ... a pre-emptive let-down before a question has even been asked?)

    Although the idea of someone not returning Penn Badgley's attention is fairly unrealistic, the whole "person professing to know for sure what's up and giving really, really bad advice" angle sure did ring real-life true...

    What's the worst advice you ever got?

    Penn Badgley and Jenna FischerWay back before he starred in Gossip Girl and John Tucker Must Die, Penn Badgley guest-starred in an episode of What I Like About You. He played Holly's coworker at Copy That.

    And way back before she played Pam on The Office, Jenna Fischer guest-starred in the very same episode. She played Val's coworker at the public relations firm.

    Wanna see Penn and Jenna (If they dated, they'd be Penna!) before they were household names? Watch the episode called "Copy That."
