90210: A Little Too Late?

At the beginning of this season 90210 was literally a piece of ****…every week I would be asking myself why am I still watching this stuff? There’s only 1 episode left of this season (CW announced 90210 would be returning for another year), but I have to admit the last few episodes have been really good! Well, not really good, but good considering it’s still 90210- they’re decent.

I’m loving the whole Liam/Silver/Navid love triangle, I think Silver and Liam make an extremely hot couple- but I don’t understand why Annie doesn’t have a problem with it…I mean she was about to marry Liam at the beginning of the season…wouldn’t she be hurt/jealous at any of this? Also, why did Navid leave for 2 months to go to “Princeton” only to return and say he’s enrolling at CU? The small stuff really bothers me, why can’t they just make the show make sense?

I’m a HUGE fan of Vampire Diaries, and I compare these 2 shows a lot just because they have the same audience and belong to the same network, but really they are such different shows. The writing on Vampire Diaries is just amazing, and everything makes sense, everything connects without inconsistencies. In 90210, I feel the writers just throw in random bits hoping the audience won’t pick up on them- probably because their audience are mainly girls (13-18) who probably don’t think into things too much.

Annie and Caleb- I just don’t get it. They literally went on one date, and they’re already talking about how in love they are. It makes it hard for me to believe they’re actually madly in love with each other when they haven’t spent time together, and when they have their conversations are just normal conversations- their time together doesn’t stand out as “Omg I’ve spent 5 minutes talking to you and I’m already in love” It wasn’t like that, same with Adrianna and Dickson, nothing stood out as to why they would be attracted to each other. I look at the dynamic between Seth and Summer (The O.C), and their conversations always had a certain something, you could feel their chemistry, their inside jokes, you just felt like they were completely in love. I think that’s where the writing really makes a difference, creating story lines for your characters is one thing, but making them believable through the dialogue, to me that draws the line between a really good show and a not so good one. Also, I’m a film student so I think I pick up on those things more.

Austin- I love him, I always have I think he’s so sexy and I was so happy to see him back on the show. Dickson, I have no idea where he went or what he’s doing, well I know what he’s doing on the show but why do characters randomly leave on this show? It’s like Bonnie being MIA for 3 episodes and then returning and turning Alaric into a VAMPIRE KILLER!!

Anyways, Naomi is planning the wedding of her ex-boyfriend Max Miller whose some millionaire computer geek now. I actually really like this storyline, how it twisted after she broke up with CJ. I hope they end up getting back together, in next week’s trailer we see Naomi interrupting Max’s wedding so that’ll be fun too watch.

Also, Ivy and her man Juan? Forgot his name, I like him, and he’s about to get deported but why don’t they just get married? That way he’ll be an American citizen…I don’t get why they just didn’t think of that…..

*On a side-note: The wedding on next week’s season finale was also the wedding Caleb and Julie got married in, in The O.C…just in case you were wondering.*

And so this week’s episode of 90210 begs me to ask the question is it just a little too late? Why would they wait until the last few episodes of the season to start busting up the drama!

9O21O: R.I.P

Last night’s episode of 90210 was surprisingly good, and I say surprisingly because this season has brought us nothing but boredom. As the season is coming to an end (we don’t know if CW picked it up for another year)…we’re left wondering how each character will finish off.

P.J the newest addition to the Beverly Hills crew is not only the hottest cast member, but also the most confusing. Writers introduced P.J a few episodes back as the ‘rich kid’ wanting to do good for the community. At first it seemed like him and Annie would hit it off, but now it’s looking as if his sights have been set on Naomi. After a few episodes of fighting between sisters Naomi and Jen, at the end of last night’s episode P.J finally chooses Naomi, who is obviously still willing to hook up with him. Anyways, Jen is on a place once again, but before she gets on the plane she tells Naomi it’s a good thing neither one of them ended up with P.J (not knowing Naomi’s lying in bed with him)…clearly Jen has some dirt on him which we definitely want to stick around for.

Dickson, who is now a recording artist minus his girlfriend Adrianna is stressing over the fact that the label wanted him and him only, they don’t want Adrianna (since she’s a flop). He can’t admit this to her, and once again he’s left lying to her, however this time he suffers a stroke/heart attack and ends up in the hospital. Adrianna is obviously worried, their fight is now over, however Dickson finds out he has some small heart defect, and his addiction to ADHD medicine in the beginning of the season triggered his heart problems. So basically he might end up dying by the season finale.

While he’s at the hospital, he stumbles upon Raj (married to Ivy except they’re in the middle of a divorce)…Raj has always been suffering from cancer, he was in remission for a while, but now the cancer has returned and it looks like he only has a few days left. He tells Dickson not to tell Ivy…but obviously he’s going to.

P.J has a chat with best-friend Annie about her love life or lack there of. They decide to hold some charity clean up on the beach event, and while picking up ‘garbage’ on the beach…she meets a really cute guy who instinctively wants to buy her coffee. Anyways, they hit it off, he turns out to be a priest…which was kind of weird, because it really comes out of left field, and I don’t really know where they’re going with him…is Annie going to become a nun?

Silver…who is clearly developing feelings for Liam asks him to go with her to the hospital to find out if she has the cancer gene. He’s all supportive and cute, and they’re obviously going to fall in love which is going to be a major issue for her best friend Annie who almost got married to Liam! Although if Annie does become a nun, she probably won’t have a problem with that situation. Anyways, in the end Silver gets a phone call from her doctor asking her to come in so they can review the results of the test. Not really sure what that means…or what they were insinuating. I think she will probably have the gene, just because I doubt they would create this entire storyline…and have it end without a result. Or they could’ve just done it to bring Liam and Silver together. Who knows.

In the end, Dickson tells Ivy Raj is dying. She obviously is by his side the entire time, and surprisingly Raj looked more like he stepped into a spray tan booth for way too long then a dying patient. Anyways, Raj dies, Ivy drops her glass of water…and it’s going to be interesting to see how Ivy deals with it all. Her character is always on the back burner, hopefully this will create an intense finale for her.

I don’t get how they’re this far into the season and the CW still doesn’t know if they’re renewing the show for another go around. Basically, the episodes have already been shot, the finale is really a season finale…it won’t be as epic as a series finale. But, we’ll wait and see what happens.
