new Reunion debuts tonight.

new Reunion debuts tonight.
The second High School Reunion debuts tonight on The WB at 9 p.m. ET. 17 former classmates from Round Rock High School in Texas will gather to reminisce, look at pictures, and claw each others’ eyes out. The WB says they’re from a “notoriously clique-ish campus” and the 1993 graduates will be joined by “three hot, bikini-clad girls from the class of ’95” who will “crash the reunion with revenge on their minds.” Besides that, you just know there will be drama because producers have already stereotyped each of the participants with conflict-oriented names like “The Homecoming Queen,” “The Redneck,” “The Ugly Duckling,” “The Teen Mom,” and “The Sophomore Vixen.” The Hartford Courant says “there’s an especially nasty triangle in which an underclass ex-girlfriend confronts the woman who apparently landed the big jock with a lie” in addition to “a major geek makeover in the offing this season.”
