Critic Reviews

  1. 80
    The dialogue is witty, the pacing is brisk and there’s some real heart amid all the tokens of the Palm Beach high life.
  2. Garcia is impeccable, and Newbrough and Hale are likably bratty. Funnier would help, but charm is abundant.
  3. Tonally, Privileged is an amalgam of the CW's other shows in this genre: more contemporary and (at times) funnier than the new "90210" but not as nihilistic as "Gossip Girl." And Garcia's both charming and a promising light comedienne.

    The show has the makings of a more sincere, "Gilmore Girls"-like take on female bonding.
  5. So while the plot points might be as far-fetched, the emotions aren't.
  6. Privileged has the potential to be a largely positive, female-skewing series.

    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!

    I also don't get how they got 150 characters in those reviews.
