Episode 209

All of the original 90210 characters are making their way back to the new version, and I find myself having to Wikipedia the plot-lines so I have any clue what's going on. So, I have decided that this summer, I will make it my priority to watch the original series (10 seasons). The original was actually one of the few shows I wasn't allowed to watch as a kid (good call, Mom). Now that I have (too much) control over what I watch, it must be done. However, watching one trashy teen soap inevitably means watching many. So, I have compiled a list of the top three other trashy teen soaps that I need to watch -- in their entirety -- this summer: 1) My So-Called Life, 2) Party of Five, 3) Gossip Girl. If anyone disagrees about those choices, speak now or forever hold your peace.

P.S. For those of you who aren't caught up yet on the new series, don't fear, one of the characters has suddenly been diagnosed with bipolar disorder after one episode's worth of manic episodes (no pun intended?) So, in case you thought Dawson's Creek and Friday Night Lights had a monopoly on suddenly-bipolar characters, think again.


  1. Yay for Gossip Girl! Lindsay will be so proud :) Maybe that's what we can do at our GCLP the 2nd season!

  2. What, no Melrose Place? That was the trashiest of trashy shows when I was growing up (I was also not allowed to watch that, 90210, Party of Five, or anything that wasn't the Cosby Show).
