I decided to watch the premiere of the new 90210. They’ve been promoting the hell out of it since the Olympics; I had to see what it was all about. Sometimes the teen drama can be good entertainment; the first couple of seasons of The O.C. come to mind. In The O.C the characters were interesting and actually had some depth beyond being spoiled rich kids.
They’ve unsuccessfully tried to duplicate the original Beverly Hills 90210 and The O.C; this 90210 spin-off is completely vapid. The characters were shallow, and the story was empty. There’s not much more to say; I won’t be tuning in next week.
I’m looking forward to new episodes of House and Battlestar Galactica. Thankfully there are still some TV shows out there you don’t need to be ashamed of watching.
