Picks and Pans Review: Class of '96
Fox (Tuesdays, 8 P.M. ET)
Fox expands to a sixth night of programming, beginning with this series about college freshman dormmates. Jason Gedrick, Brandon Douglas. Perry Moore, Gale Hansen. Lisa Dean Ryan, Megan Ward and Kari Wuhrer play the students. Most of the time is devoted to their solemn weekly growth spurts, as they contend with formulaic dilemmas involving drinking, classroom cheating and, naturally, romance. Still, a capable cast makes this the best of Fox’s dopey young adult melodramas.
