High School Reunion debuts Sunday.
The WB debuts its six-episode series High School Reunion on Sunday at 9 p.m. ET. The show, which will repeat weekly on Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET, follows a two-week reunion in Hawaii of 17 classmates from Oak Park/River Forest Illinois class of 1992. Branded by their high school identities (“The Loner,” “The Chubby Cheerleader,” “The Homecoming Queen,” and “The Nerd”), the show “will test who these people have become and what their classmates think of them now, giving them one last chance at redemption or revenge.” Reviews and reports call the show, produced by Mike Fleiss, “standard reality-show stuff” and “only a slight variation on ‘Elimidate.’”

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
