90210-logo2

So, another good episode of 90210 last night!  I’m really really beginning to like this show. 

First off, we got to see more of Liam (Matt Lanter), which is always a pleasure.  🙂  Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord) and Annie (Shenae Grimes) went to a bar to meet up with Liam and his cousin.  Naomi was a fumbling idiot in front of Liam and excused herself to go to the bathroom.  While she was in the bathroom, Liam began flirting with Annie.  However, while she seemed a bit interested, she played it VERY cool, which only caused Liam to want her more.

Erin (Jessica Stroup) went off to Catholic School, since she was so embarrassed by the sex tape she made of her and Dixon (Tristan Wilds).  Plus, since being diagnosed as bi-polar, she just needed to get a fresh start.  However, the girl that befriends her had seen the sex tape, and tells Erin that she must tell the entire school what she did to get it off her chest.  Until Erin told everyone, this girl was going to fast.  Feeling guilty that the girl may starve herself to death, Erin told the entire school and became the laughing stock.  Poor Erin just can’t catch a break.  😦

Adrianna (Jessica Lowndes) and Navid (Michael Steger) decided to tell his parents that they were getting married and having a baby.  However, when Navid’s parents learned that he wasn’t the paternal father, they told him to end things.  Navid rebelled against them and moved in with Adrianna.  Adrianna then confessed to Navid that the father of the baby is actually Ty (Adam Gregory) and not some guy from rehab as she originally told him.

At the end of the episode, after Naomi managed to piss off all of the Wilsons, she called her sister Jen (Sara Foster) and moved out of the Wilson Household.  Later, Jen drops Naomi off at school and bumps into Ethan (Dustin Milligan).  After an awkward hello, Jen whispers to Ethan “Don’t worry, I wont tell Naomi that I was your first” or something along those lines.  So, if Jen took Ethan’s virginity while he was with Naomi, it’s only a matter of time before Jen sinks her claws into Liam.  Also, Jen showed an interest in Naomi’s teacher Ryan (Ryan Eggold) who is dating Kelly (Jennie Garth).  I think Jen is going to stir up a lot of trouble in these hills.  What do you think?

Also, Tori Spelling (Donna), in a recent interview, has expressed her desire to come back to 90210 next season and she’s hoping that Brian Austin Green (David) will follow.  That would be awesome!!!!

OK, tonight’s episode of 90210 was by far my fave episode of this new series.  It was actually REALLY good, and Jennie Garth and Tori Spelling actually remembered what it was like to play Kelly Taylor and Donna Martin Silver.  Everything about tonight’s episode made me feel like this was a real continuation of the original series, and I couldn’t be happier!

I’m glad that Naomi (AnnaLynn McCord) and Annie (Shanae Grimes) are making a go at being friends again.  However, it is such a fragile relationship, and I’m just counting the seconds until it’s dissolved once again.  The preview for next week show that this friendship wont last long, since Annie descides to go out on a date with Liam (Matt Lanter), which is Naomi’s man.  Stupid move Annie.

I’m actually getting really sad about Ethan’s (Dustin Milligan) upcoming departure.  The character is actually becoming three dimensional and I’m really liking him.  He was always easy to look at, but now he’s interesting to boot.  I’m still not completely understanding the move to get rid of him.

As much as I didn’t care for Navid (Michael Steger), tonight he actually grew on me.  At first I thought that this kid wouldn’t be able to carry a story, but now I’m actually enjoying him.  And I really really like his scenes with Adrianna (Jessica Lowndes).  I’m so sick of teen pregnancy tales, but this one is actually watchable.  That says a lot, b/c I really hate those stories.  They’re so played out.

My only complaint tonight?  Erin and Dixon.  First off, Erin (Jessica Stroup) became so interesting 2 weeks ago when she had her break down.  But since then, her character just hasn’t been interesting.  And she’s actually been EXTREMELY predictable.  Who didn’t see this story coming of everyone treating her like she’s a porcelain doll?  It’s been done so many times and there’s absolutely NO originality to it.  Plus, what a huge departure for her character in the beginning of the episode.  This is a girl that doesn’t give a shit about what people say or think about her, who has blogged about all her fellow students making fun of them, and now she cries b/c two snobs said she was a psycho?  It makes no sense.  I understand that she’s fragile now (could I use the word fragile more tonight?), but it’s still too big of a departure for her character.  Poor writing.

My honest opinions about casting…Get rid of Dixon (Tristan Wilds).  He’s BORING!  Not only is he boring, but he doesn’t have good chemistry with ANY of the other characters.

Keep Ethan.  Someone just needs to save him at the last minute.  Bring on George Evans (Kellan Lutz) permanently.  He’s the perfect new Steve Sanders and would look great with Naomi.  Plus he’s funny!  The kid has barely been given a story and I care more about him than I do about some of the series regulars.  Plus, he’s on the rise due to the popularity of the Twilight franchise.  Bring on Ty (Adam Gregory) permanently.  He’s awesome, he’s a snob, he’s hot, a perfect Beverly Hills brat.

After tonight’s episode, I also think the show would be smart to bring on Kelly, Donna, and Brenda (Shannen Doherty) on a more permanent basis and give them good and fun story.  As The OC and Gossip Girl have taught us, the adults can have very good story that entertains kids, teens, and adults alike.

I hope that tonight’s episode is a sign of things to come b/c I actually enjoyed it and didn’t feel like I was watching out of obligation for my love of the original series.

I applaud thee!  🙂
