Privileged: 5 Reasons to Save ‘Privileged’

Joanna Garcia, ”Gilmore Girls”-like banter, and a surprising dark side make the CW show worthy of watching

The CW is giving Privileged a very early season finale on Feb. 24, making us worry for its future. Here’s why the freshman critical fave deserves to graduate to a second season.

1. Joanna Garcia
As tutor-to-the-rich Megan Smith, Garcia (right) plays cynical and sunny, pretty and goofy, dark and funny. Think Lorelai and Rory Gilmore in one, with a little Veronica Mars on top.

2. The Gilmore Vibe
Nothing can replace the Girls, but Privileged comes close, with heartfelt family stories, endearing side characters (Allan Louis’ chef Marco has his own series’ worth of drama!), and sparkling banter.

3. The Twins
Megan’s wealthy charges, Rose (Lucy Kate Hale) and Sage (Ashley Newbrough), struggle with Paris Hilton urges, date dorks and the help, and might even want to be a little smart.

4. Its Dark Side
Megan’s mom, who ditched her when she was a kid, suddenly reappeared. She then stole $25,000 from Megan’s boyfriend. Who was planning to use it as bail money for Megan’s sister. Who was accused of running drugs.

5. Underrated Actors
Anne Archer as matriarch Laurel, Sharon Lawrence as Megan’s mom, and cougar bait Robert Buckley (Lipstick Jungle) as her editor…they’ve earned their job security!
