As I am neither a teen nor do I have kids, there's really no reason that I've become as addicted to Cartoon Network's live-action drama "Tower Prep." Yet, I have.
Teens with certain special abilities (some might even call them powers) -- like having a split second inkling of what's about to happen, being able to mimic anyone, scarily broad powers of persuasion -- wake up and find themselves as a boarding school with other teens of their kind. No contact with old family and friends and no idea of whether or not the school is training them for something good ... or a bit more nefarious.
There's a mystery and a conspiracy plus all that good old-fashioned angsty teen stuff. Plus, it's kind of a refreshing vampire/werewolf TV cleanser.
