Going to one’s high school reunion, for some, is like a blast from the past. For others, it is a night to dread.
For two years, between 2003 and 2005, the WB aired High School Reunion. The concept of this reality was basically a one night high school reunion that lasts longer than any standard high school reunion. And, like any high school reunion/reality show, the archetypes play a role in the storytelling: the outsiders, the jocks, the popular kids, the band geeks, the goof balls, etc.
In terms of reality television, I appreciated the novel concept. I also appreciated that like any high school reunion, it gave the participants a chance to reveal who they are as adults outside of their high school personas. But, at the end of the day, it was just another reality show.
Do I recommend it? Maybe.
