I'm not going to say much else, in order to preserve the genuinely surprising twist this show takes toward the end of the pilot. ) This show has promise of becoming an anxious allegory of global capitalism, and it's not just the super-sharp halogen flashlights that remind a viewer of "The X-Files." If Abrams keeps his urge to overreach under control and lets the mystery seep out organically over time, while tracking the shifting three-way relationship between Dunham and the Bishops, this could be a very good and even significant TV show.
Yet I will suggest that it has a playful manner and untapped resources of "X-Files" paranoia, manifested in Blair Brown, who plays the placid public-relations face of Massive Dynamic, a hugely fearsome corporation run by a former colleague of Dr. No so "Privileged," the CW's new class-conscious, but otherwise bubbleheaded exercise in elitism and how the other half lives, debuting at 8 p.m. Jo Anna Garcia, who could double as Amy Adams' baby sister, stars as Megan Smith, an aspiring writer who ends up serving as tutor to two bratty Palm Beach teens: the more humble Rose, played by Lucy Kate Hale, and the more ferocious and dominant Sage, played by Ashley Newbrough.
As it is, this show couldn't be more predictable or less compelling. It stars Jerry O'Connell, who was the best thing about the canceled "Carpoolers" (except maybe for T. Miller's Marmaduke), as Neal, the horndog manager of a well-to-do hotel.

I don't know how it is Fox can produce such high-minded dramas and such idiotic comedies, but my guess is this series will be forcibly removed from the Fox schedule before the baseball playoffs move in come October. Fox WFLD Channel 32 is getting into the online-community dating business. The highlights are culled from about 80 submissions of short audio stories.
