Picks and Pans Review: Moesha
UPN(Tuesdays, 8 p.m. ET)
Bubbly 17-year-old pop singer Brandy Norwood is irresistible as Moesha Mitchell, a bright high school girl in a middle-class black neighborhood in Los Angeles. Funkier than the Huxtables, the Mitchells (William Allen Young and Sheryl Lee Ralph) have both sophistication and soul, and Moesha's likable pals discuss their problems in a zesty, up-to-the-minute slang. There are a few weak jokes, but in its substance, look (fly fashions), and sound, this could be a real trendsetter.
