Sorority Forever is a new show on the new WB

The newly launched TheWB.com is bringing TV to the Internet in an all new way, with a mix of classic shows (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”, “Gilmore Girls”, “Friends”) and all new webseries, like “Sorority Forever” from McG (as pictured above).

“Sorority Forever” looks like a show that we would have seen on The WB had the network never merged with UPN to form The CW. The production values are top notch, the cast are from the networks same perfect mold, and the show looks like a mix of “Buffy” and Dawson’s Creek”.

In “Sorority Forever”:

“Phi Chi Kappa is the hottest sorority on campus. For every freshmen girl, getting in seems like a dream come true, but there are mysteries around every corner of the Phi Chi House. Behind the sex, the drama, and the beautiful people lies a terrifying secret.”

The series stars Jessica Rose, aka Lonelygirl15 the first YouTube superstar and is being executive produced by McG (who produces “Chuck” and “Supernatural”, not to mention directs films such as the updated “Charlie’s Angels” series). You can check out the show’s trailer here, the series premieres on September 9th.

Kelly Taylor and her son Sammy, on 90210

For anyone doubting the return of the world’s most famous zip code to TV, the show’s premiere is the highest-rated debut on the CW ever with over 5 million viewers. You can read detailed breakdowns of the premiere’s ratings on Adweek and EW. What I want to focus on is that the episode was good, really good.

For 2 hours, it felt like “Beverley Hills, 90210” never ended.  The show remained true to its roots, while still remaining fresh and introducing us to a whole new crop of characters.  The nods to the old series were sprinked throughout the first two episodes and the growing mystery of who is the father of Kelly Taylor’s son (could it be Brandon, Dylan, or someone new?) added a great dynamic to the show. I’m going to keep watching, will you?

If you have some free time, you might be interested in heading over to Erin Silver’s blog, The Vicious Circle, as seen in the show. The blog features some of Silver’s thoughts and she shares all new pictures (including the one at the top of this post!).

Did you miss the “Prison Break” season premiere? Well, thanks to Hulu, you can watch it in its entirety. Continue reading to watch “Scylla”, the first episode of the forth season of “Prison Break”.
