The WB Fall 2002 Grid
New Show Descriptions
"Birds of Prey" (Wednesdays, 8 PM)-Loosely based on the DC Comic, New Gotham is torn apart when the Joker lets loose and kills Catwoman and confines Batgirl to a wheelchair. Batman leaves the city in mourning for Catwoman, while Batgirl (a.k.a. Barbara Gordon) changes herself into "Oracle" and takes in Batman and Catwoman's secret love child, "Huntress." It stars Ashley Scott, Dina Meyer, Rachel Skarsten, Shemar Moore, and Mia Sara.
"Everwood" (Mondays, 8 PM)-A neurosurgeon who has allowed his career to take precedence over his family gets a wake-up call when his wife dies. Packing up his 9-year-old daughter ad 15-year-old son, he abandons New York City for a small Colorado town where he opens up a general practice and charges his patients nothing. It stars Treat Williams, Gregory Smith, Emily VanCamp, Debra Mooney, John Beasley, Vivien Cardone, Chris Pratt, and Tom Amandes.
Over" (Thursdays, 7:30 PM)-An unhappy, 34-year-old salesman has a
freak accident and is sent back in time to his freshman year of high school.
Armed with 20 years of knowledge, and a dysfunctional family, he sets about
making his life over. It stars Penn Badgley, Angela Bethany Goethals, Gigi
Rice, Natasha Melnick, Michael Milhoan, and Josh Wise.
"The Gilmore Girls: Beginnings" (Sundays, 6 PM)-Not really a new show, but "The Gilmore Girls'" first season rerun in chronological order. This show is still my second favorite show on TV today (behind a certain show about a vampire slayer that this show replaced on Tuesdays this past season!)
(Fridays, 8:30 PM)-A 15-year-old tries to figure out where he fits in, both in
life and in his ethnically diverse family: Dad, the proud but impossibly
pragmatic Mexican American; Mom, a fierce Irish American; his sister, who
insists she's Spanish; and his extremely hip uncle and grandmother. It
stars Pablo Santos, Julio Oscar Mechoso, Rebecca Creskoff, Jacob Vargas, Aimee
Garcia, Jamie Strange, Bobby Chavez, and Lupe Onitveros.
Like About You"
(Fridays, 7 PM)-A 16-year-old free spirit turns her straitlaced big sister's
life upside down when she goes to live with her in New York. It stars
Amanda Bynes, Jennie Garth, Simon Rex, and Wesley Jonathan.
O'Keefes"-Eccentric parents home-school their three children, only
to have their two teens and one younger child become obsessed with knowing about
popular culture. Ultimately, they are left with no choice but to send the
trio, who can speak six languages but don't know how to make friends, to public
school. It stars Judge Reinhold, Kirstin Nelson, Joseph Corss, Tania
Raymond, and Matt Weinberg.
