some recommended i watch it, some disagreed, others simply stated that the lackluster remake was a good way to pass time, though not as thrilling as all the hype would have indicated . long story short, i decided to give it a shot .
90210 is another show about filthy rich teens (which, i must admit, i have the tendency to sink my claws into and devour for all they're worth) living in a world that could never be mimicked, a world i love and desperately want to call my own - los angeles, calif . and i think that's what i liked about it .. because it certainly brought nothing new to the table .
the plot is pretty similar to any other teen drama (aka dreen or trama) - pregger teen ? check . new girl at school ? check . hot lacrosse player (hello, nathaniel archibald ?) check .. and the list goes on and on - but i know myself better than to say that i would be able to set the show aside after having watched the first few episodes .. the truth is, i'm a sucker for the aforementioned dreens & tramas .
and so, i'm already at episode what, like, eighteen ? three days' worth of intensive internet pirating and here i am, no longer able to call myself the cynic who didn't have time for such nonsense . not to say there weren't a few things i didn't like . annie wilson is annoying as hell (i am not a shenae grimes fan, at all . period .) and her dad is three times worse . also, a bit too much 'counselling' and 'learning about yourself' and 'we're a big happy family' for my taste .
but i do like mr. matthews (he's very hilary swank in freedom writers meets ryan gosling in half nelson), the naomi + drag racer dude relationship (if you can call it that) and silver as a psycho .
yep, i'm now one of those sappy kids who knows all the characters' names .
big change from a few days ago, n'est-ce pas ?
