Now that US tv is back big-time, i'm having to be choosy over what I watch & this has become one of the first casualties. a two-minutes-a-week fix of Kelly is not enough to keep me coming back to this glossy rubbish.

If the younger female eye-candy put on a few lbs, I might return. I'll stick with Gossip Girl & Greek for now.

I've given up on this. It's just rubbish. If I have to hear that Mamma Who Bore Me song one more time...

Why can't they bring back The OC? It's not like any of the stars have gone on to bigger and better things. They could do The OC: College Years or something

Uh, they already did, it was called Season 4!
I jest!
Anyhoo, yeah 90210 does suck but I'm sticking with it for now anyway just in case it gets juicy! If it remains the way it has for another 5 episodes I'll dump it.

I should write for 90210, I'd have Brenda help out Kelly and Mr Matthew's yawnsome romance only to swoop in and destroy it at the last minute as they head down the aisle (by letting Kelly's brat by Dylan have an "accident") and thereby finally getting her revenge on Kelly for stealing Dylan away from her all those years before...
Alas Brenda ain't sticking around though...
hmmmm, maybe Nat can take sweet revenge on her behalf? The kid could choke on a peach pit...

If you want OC: The College Years, look no further than Greek. I caught up with this when BBC3 showed the first half of S1 & since then i'm now up-to-date & still enjoying it a lot. Comfortably fills the void that the OC left behind.

OMG 90210 really does suck!
Finally (SEVEN episodes in) something actually happens but it's so badly done I simply don't care. Undercover fed enroles in high school for major drugs sting and druggie girl ODing to Mika ooooh drama! yawn.
And that Naomi, with her old lady hair and permenantly constipated look is a major disappoinment. Some mega-bitch she turned out to be. All she does is cry over her hot dad's affair.
WHY am I watching this?
It's off air for 2 weeks anyway so the test will be if anyone bothers watching when it comes back. Australia already dumped it! I wonder how far the CW will let it sink before they pull the plug (even though it's picked up for a full season, if no-one actually watches then it's dead right)?

OH HELL YES!!!!!
Now that's one show that can return with absolute pleasure! So long as they make it as mental as the first time. Mind you it'll be pretty hard to top eveything they did in that!

Heads up

CHannel 4 is showing this end jan.

And watching ep 12 at present, as its back in the US. So we may need spoilers - or my preference is a seperate UK thread?

This is so appallingly awful even I can't be arsed to watch it anymore, haven't bothered since it went on a few weeks' break after episode 7!

btw Tori Spelling is definitely back for several episodes before the end of the season.

Oh yeah, will deffo have to watch that retrospectivey thing! I hope we see clips of Kelly Taylor's "cocaine hell" from season 6 as that was hilarious!

Would you really drop the glorious Gossip Girl for this plodding bobblehead anorexia convention, Catherine?

I wonder how many UK viewers are going to bother with the new 90210 after umpteen episodes with that bloody Mama Who Bore Me song in the school play rehersals. It's just torture.

Gossip Girl is vastly superior to 90210 in every department. I watch plenty of rubbish, but like Richie, I dropped this incarnation of 90210 after a half-dozen excrutiating episodes. You can physically feel your brain turning to mush & running out your ears while watching it.

"I'm not an actor" says Ethan in episode 14. Never a truer word said and something that applies to the entire cast.
WHY does everyone in this constantly look really pained and keep having facial spasms with every line delivery? Either the direction is terrible (it is) or literally none of them can act (they can't). What's the Naomi chick like in Nip/Tuck? Is she as bad as in this (I haven't watched that since season 4 and she's in season 5)?
Anyway yes, I know I said I couldn't be bothered to watch but I couldn't help myself this week thanks to this thread bouncing back up! And oh yeah, yet another episode where nothing happens until literally the last two seconds! Why do I put myself (and you lot) through this?
