CAMP Review: NBC's New Drama Is Nothing to Write Home About

NCB’s summer drama Camp may sound like a Ryan Murphy production, but it isn’t. It stars Rachel Griffiths (Six Feet Under) as Mackenzie "Mac" Granger, the owner of the Little Otter Family Camp, located somewhere in the Midwest. The specifics of the camp itself are vague: who attends the camp, where it’s located, why some of the counselors are parents of the kids there and apparently don’t have jobs during the rest of the year, are all left unexplained. The intricacies of everyone’s sex lives, though, take up a lot of the premiere episode. NBC ordered the show straight to series last year — a bold move meaning they would not first see a pilot. This is key when watching the premiere episode, because one imagines if they had, some tweaks might have been made. Hit the jump to see whether to pack your bags or cancel your reservations.

'Camp' review: NBC's summer dramedy should be sent home early for bad behavior

"Camp" is the sort of show that gives scripted summer TV a bad name. Broad, cheap and tedious, it wouldn't have the slightest chance of cracking a major network's schedule during the regular season. But in the summer -- or so the theory goes -- anything can draw some fans, simply because there's so little competition. Not that that line of thinking is helping ABC's "Mistresses" or NBC's "Crossing Lines." In the age of DVRs, on demand, streaming, YouTube and so many other entertainment options, the networks have more competition than they want to admit. "This is not going to be some coming-of-age movie," nerdy lead Kip (Thom Green) announces when he's dropped off to be a counselor-in-training at Little Otter Family Camp. "This is not going to be the greatest summer of my life." Irony alert! That wink-wink dialogue isn't actually representative of the show's snoozy earnestness. It's apparently included just so we know... //

Television Review: NBC's Camp Is as Much About the Grown-Ups as the Kids

NBC’s new show "Camp" is about a typical, all-American lakeside camp, with color wars and young, sex-obsessed counselors, but also a humane guiding ethos. Read More... //
