* AndStarring:
** And Scott Foley.
** Ian Gomez was PromotedToOpeningTitles and given the "With" credit for Season 4.


* OstentatiousSecret: Felicity's witchy roommate Meghan made a big issue of no one having permission to look in her locked box. In this case the box was used as a RunningGag and its contents were never revealed. There was a SomethingCompletelyDifferent episode styled after ''Series/TheTwilightZone'' in which it was intimated that all the series regulars were actually trapped in a magical universe within the box.

''Felicity'' is a
ComingOfAgeStory from [[Creator/RonHoward Imagine Television]] and [[Creator/TouchstonePictures Touchstone Television]], set at [[NoCommunitiesWereHarmed the University of New York]] and focusing mostly on the LoveTriangle between the main character and her two on-and-off paramours Noel and Ben.


One of the strongest offerings in the WB's 1998 season, this show suffered a massive {{ratings}} drop in its second season. Executives reportedly blamed the newly-shortened hairstyle of the main character (a drastic response to a harsh breakup), and WB executive Susanne Daniels famously said of the show, "No one is cutting their hair again on this network".

* [[ActorAllusion Actress Allusion]]: A "Pink Ranger" can be seen in the background of the first year HalloweenEpisode. Amy Jo Johnson (Julie) played the Pink Ranger on ''MightyMorphinPowerRangers.''
** Even more humorous is that this random Pink Ranger acts as throwaway rival in the eyes of [[ClingyJealousGirl Felicity]], a role that Amy Jo Johnson filled in earlier episodes.

* EnforcedMethodActing: To elicit real emotion from the rest of the cast during the filming of the final scene, in which Sean is offering a toast to Noel, Sean's actor spoke largely out-of-character, expressing his regards for his co-stars.
* ExecutiveMeddling: Most probably, the sudden and completely ridiculous switch from Noel/Felicity to Ben/Felicity (having Ben fall in love with Felicity ''because of a spell''?). Also, the time-travel storyline at the end of Season 4.



* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: One of the first shows to fall victim to the issue of music copyrights; the music used in syndication and on the DVD is mostly different from the music used in its original broadcast, with only a few exceptions.

Added DiffLines:

* TrueCompanions: Felicity, Ben, Noel, Julie, Meghan, Elena, Sean, and Javier are all basically one big extended family, a point driven home with season 1's Thanksgiving episode.
