Prime-Time Pick

A Different World (8:30 p.m., WFLA-Channel 8) has a cute premise this evening as Walter (Sinbad) does his best Rod Serling in a sendup of The Twilight Zone. The episode is called "Tales From the Exam Zone." We follow Walter as he visits students at Hillman College during exam season. Normally a tense time on any campus, Hillman proves to be no different. For example: Dwayne (Kadeem Hardison) is gently coerced into tutoring Terrence (Cory Tyler), Col. Taylor's son, all the while forsaking his own studies; Whitley drops her torch (for Dwayne) in favor of a quiet place to cram for her exams; Freddie (Cree Summer) is locked in mortal combat with her "intrusive alter ego" (NBC's words, not ours). Those who have lived through a similar experience will no doubt understand why the producers saw a certain surrealism in the whole exam process and decided to bring it to the screen in this format._ TV Data
