In the news: The Best Years, more US reviews

From Marilyn Moss of the Hollywood Reporter:

  • BestYear2Bottom Line: A welcome summer addition to young-adult programming
    “The N’s new series for college kids (or thereabouts) is a welcome summer addition to young-adult programming. Realistic but not overwhelmingly so, humorous yet with enough pathos to get college kids involved, The Best Years, which focuses on one freshman’s new experiences at a Boston college, is wonderfully engaging fun and not in the least bit superficial.”

From Joanne Ostrow of the Denver Post:

  • “Best Years” moves to head of the class
    “The tone of the pilot is uneven, at times juvenile, at times reaching to far into Fox territory. But if producer (Aaron) Martin can figure out how to keep the angst going without making the stories too frighteningly real for younger viewers, Sam Best may be the coed to watch.”

From Rick Ellis of All Your TV:
