    The dialogue is witty, the pacing is brisk and there’s some real heart amid all the tokens of the Palm Beach high life.

    Garcia is impeccable, and Newbrough and Hale are likably bratty. Funnier would help, but charm is abundant.

    Great it’s not, but the fizzy mix of soapy elements, screwy comedy, high-society hijinks and romance dovetails with where the netlet has been heading programming-wise.

    Garcia is a major-league cutie and sunny on-screen presence without being cloying. But enough with the filthy-rich-kid dramedies!

    While the show doesn’t (yet) expand on its opening diagnosis of the “New Gilded Age,” it just might offer more careful consideration of other possibilities of self-interest.
  6. But aside from Garcia, Archer and Louis (who does a colorful turn as the chef), there's too much sizzle here and too little steak.
  7. 30
    Just about everything in Privileged has popped up before, and what hasn't popped up before should never be permitted to pop up at all.
