ABC Family (Mondays, 9 p.m. ET)

Falcon Beach isn't any more original than a beach paperback, but it's not bad as a toned-down, family-oriented OC. Some heat, no sweat. It's mostly about the kids in a resort town. Tanya (Devon Weigel) is back from Europe, disenchanted with a modeling career, and keeps running into her old townie boyfriend Jason (Steve Byers). Paige (Jennifer Kydd) sulks because she's lost her dream internship with daddy's big firm in the city. Poor Paige! The good thing is, these people all seem nice under their sun-tanned skins.
