A love letter to New York City and, more so, to Jennifer Love Hewitt, this spinoff of the wheezing Party of Five captures both in luminous visuals--the pilot looks as if it cost as much as a full season of That '70s Show. But the writing seems decidedly more cut-rate. Hewitt's Sarah Merrin heads east to find her biological father and take a bite out of the Big Apple, dropping Holly Golightly-isms like, "Give me one good reason why I should not spend the night dancing!" This star vehicle, thus far, is a shiny subway to nowhere.
