The Cast of the OC.

With a hip soundtrack and a cast packed with attractive members of Harvard’s thespian elite, Ivory Tower is developing a burgeoning undergrad fan base. The latest episode of the Harvard sitcom, which claims to be “redefining America’s soap opera,” features rule-breaking romance and sinisterly flirtatious freshmen. But will the back-stabbing, scandals, and sexscapades of the Harvardian specimen ever rival the creme de la creme of self-indulgent, mindless programming—that is, The OC? FM investigates.
