The new version of “Party of Five” debuts tonight on Freeform

As viewers and reviewers all know, some shows are good, others bad and many “interesting” — often in ways their makers had not intended. The “new” “Party of Five” (9 p.m. and 10 p.m., Freeform, TV-14) debuting tonight is pretty interesting. That doesn’t make it very good.

The original series ran for six seasons on Fox and made stars of its young cast, which included Scott Wolf, Matthew Fox, Neve Campbell, Lacey Chabert and Jennifer Love Hewitt. As we all know, it concerned the four young Salinger siblings forced to care for their infant brother and each other after the death of their parents.
