This show has the feel of something that was planned by a committee with focus group input. You can see their list: (1) hire several great actresses; (2) hire a couple of cute actors; (3) make one wise motherly figure, one young sweet person, one sarcastic rebel, one hard-as-nails type, and one "medium" person as an entry point for the audience; (4) use "ripped from the headlines" plots; (5) use trendy Lilith-Fair-type music; and (6) have one humorous subplot each week. The list has been checked off neatly, but the show doesn't feel organic. In time, the talented cast may be able to gel into an ensemble that the viewer can care about; a lighter tone would also help. But as it stands now, this show is a bit cold and uninvolving.
