part of the beauty of falling in love with you is the fear you won't fall

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 ?

  6. mr matthews is definitely the sexiest guy on the show, my favourite character also. i felt so sorry for him when he was accused of sleeping with a student (how sad am i caring about fictional characters??).

    long story short, i heart mr matthews.

  10. i totally agree with you about shenae grimes - they couldn't have picked a more annoying actress. her voice makes me cringe
    the show over all is alright, i'm going to start watching it again in the summer xo

  13. Hahaha! I got addicted to this a couple of months ago and dowloaded everything up to date. Its so easy to watch and to get to know the characters that I just couldn't resist.
    I really don't like silver as a character or as a actress, super annoying. I half hope she dies in some kind of car crash where she goes crazy and tries to kill (whatever her boyfriend was called) in a 'if I cant have you, no one can' vanilla sky kinda way.

    god! so i'm not the only one who HATES annie!
    she seriously pisses me off.

    but i adore naomi, and of course liam.

    Over the years the Breitling has built a solid reputation and is now known as the “world’s oldest chronograph.” During the 1950’s and 1960’s sub-collections like Breitling Windrider were released. The Navitimer Montbrillant is named after the factory in which this chronograph was first made. The Bentley Motors design is 40’s inspired and comes with a 38mm case, while the Navitimer World is one of Navitimer Watches ever made, measuring 10% bigger than the Navitimer.
