Pilot Review: Privileged

Privileged (CW)
Premiered September 9 at 9pm

Now this is one show that's hopeless from the start. I had imagined it as an exact clone of "90210" without having any idea whatsoever what it was about, but it couldn't even live up to my low expectations. It is hardly about anything, setting a boring character in a relatively unexciting setting set to work with equally uninteresting characters. The celebrity grandmother is talked up as if she's far more intriguing than she really is, and granddaughter number one contributes nothing. Granddaughter number two, played by Lucy Hale (the only good thing about NBC's short-lived "Bionic Woman"), could well save this show from being the most uninteresting thing on Earth, but it's unlikely. Lead actress Joanna Garcia is bubbly and annoying, and her supposed intelligence translates only to over-chatty geekiness. One of my favorite hilarious actors, Michael Cassidy, is sadly underused, and his few scenes couldn't lead me to consider sticking with even another episode of this poor, bland, entirely unoriginal and worthless show.

How will it work as a series? I'm sure there's some equally uninteresting storyline set to occur over the next few episodes, but I doubt anyone will care. There just isn't enough intrigue and all of the characters are tragically one-dimensional.
How long will it last? I'd predict not long. After a theoretically kindred "90210" it doesn't hold up. I don't think anyone will be interested in watching it, and could see it going the way of the extremely short-lived "Runaway" from two years ago. I give it 3-4 episodes.

Pilot grade: F

Side note: I'm giving up on "The Cleaner." Not interested anymore.

When you find yourself looking to quit smoking, make use of the approach that works well with you. Some individuals convey more success by quitting slowly, while some do greater by laying off chilly turkey. Attempt one method, and in case it can do not do the job, move to the other strategy to see if it provides you with much better results. [url=http://www.x21w12w21.info]Biuyu656gy[/url]
