Picks and Pans Review: The Crew

Fox (Thursdays, 8:30 p.m. ET)


Four good-looking young people, based in Miami, work together as flight attendants for Regency, an airline so pitiful that its 747s crash into each other while taxiing on the tarmac. The stereotyped cast includes the skirt chaser (Charles Esten), the gay man (David Burke), the sassy in-your-face black girl (Rose Jackson) and the perky blond from Utah (Kristin Bauer). Christine Estabrook costars as their supervisor; Lane Davies, as a pilot; and Dondré T Whitfield, as a bartender. This show is a junk-culture nightmare, full of gags about American Gladiators and Def Comedy Jam. Fasten your seat belt. The only class available on this turbulent passage is steerage.
