ABC's newest comedy, "Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23," would be pretty hilarious even without the incredible self-parody from James Van Der Beek, but The Beek from the Creek is a revelation here. He is an unexpected joy in flannel.
In "Don't Trust the B" (I don't have to explain to you what the "B" stands for, do I?), a naive woman moves from the Midwest to New York City to start a promising career in the financial sector, but when everything falls apart (pretty much as soon as she arrives in the city), June (Dreama Walker) can either retreat in defeat or stay and conquer the big city on her own.
June decides to stay and conquer, and the first step in starting her new life is finding an apartment and a roommate. Unfortunately, she falls in BFF-love with Chloe (Krysten Ritter), whose scam is collecting "first and last month plus security" from trusting roommates and then turning full-blown "B" to scare them off. And I'm not talking about leaving the milk on the counter and playing the stereo too loud. Chloe's tactics are evil and over-the-top and hilarious.
