When our favorite series flee the airwaves around Memorial Day, the summer TV “season” begins. These shows are supposed to prevent the next three months from becoming a wasteland of reruns, reality TV marathons and fake award shows.
Last night I came upon NBC’s Persons Unknown, a show that caught my attention because the lead guy looked annoyingly familiar. When I visited IMDB I was mortified to learn that my brain cells had retained the memory of an obscure Beverly Hills 90210 character, Kelly’s pill-popping artist boyfriend Colin. It was then that I realized that there are certain rules when it comes to summer TV.
