    It’s a compelling premise, though the show still needs to flesh out the kids as characters.

    Freeform’s “Party of Five” reboot spoke to me in ways the original never did – the Acostas’ precarious situation feels much closer to the jagged edge of reality than the Salingers ever approached.

    The trick with a series like this is to educate and inform the viewer without seeming preachy. The main point of a family drama must remain to entertain. Party of Five does that with compelling teen angst, love triangles, rebellious adolescents, family intrigue and all the other things that make a good drama tick.
