Sharks, creepy islanders and even a bit of surfing: It’s good to have ‘Beyond the Break’ back

In the summer of 2006, I gave "Beyond the Break" a C+ in a review, ranking it behind its contemporaries "Falcon Beach," "South of Nowhere" and "Degrassi: The Next Generation." Now it's back (The-N started running Season 3 this year after a very, very long hiatus; set your DVRs or check the Web site for times), and I'd give it more like a B+ now.
