NBC (Mon., Feb. 24, 9 p.m. ET)


This is the tale of the hazing terrors endured by a pretty freshman (Hilary Swank) while pledging a college sorority. The girls of Pi Gamma Beta are pert, pretty and nasty. In short, Greek-alphabet vixens. Some nights they gather together on campus in hooded robes, light candles and prick their fingers to swear blood oaths. In one initiation rite, pledges are ordered to walk down a tabletop wearing bikinis. The heartless sorority sisters reach out with laundry markers and circle their goose-bumpy cellulite. In another stunt, a girl falls to her death—or was she pushed? The sisters lie and tell the authorities she had been drinking. Faster, faster, Pi Gamma Beta, kill, kill! If you enjoy the borderline-prurient spectacle of nubile coeds physically degrading one another, this two-hour piece of trash is not to be missed.
