"Thirty Something" meets "Beverly Hills 90210."
2 September 1999 | by KyleshiversSee all my reviews

Wasteland is more than just your average television series, it is beyond most shows with its up-and-coming actors and actresses living in New York with a Kevin Williamson style. I taped the first episode and I was surprised at how interesting this show really is. Playing the naive and pure Dawnie, Marisa Coughlan does a wonderful job and her character is truly believable. I think that this show will really boost her career as a serious actress. We also rarely see Rebecca Gayheart in a sweet and flirtatious role. I think a lot of people will really enjoy this show no matter how old you are. I am in my teens and I still enjoy the show because it is weird to wonder what they must be going through and that I could possibly be like that when I am in my late twenties. ABC did a good move when they picked up "Wasteland," for their fall lineup.
