“90210″ finally returned this week. I honestly wasn’t sure it was ever coming back after the news it wouldn’t be coming back for another season. Clearly though they didn’t use that extremely long hiatus to retool much did they? It was recycled nonsense as usual!
Adriana and Silver are still “fighting” over Mark, and Mark was the only one mature enough to say these head games
were so high-schoolish and needed to stop. Well clearly he didn’t go to Beverly Hills High, that’s why he’s so smart! His plan to try and get Adrianna and Silver to mend fences and get their issues out failed. Adrianna said she had matured and moved on while Silver hadn’t, so they couldn’t be friends anymore. Really Adrianna? You really want to go there? Wait, give yourself twenty minutes and re-evaluate that statement . . .
Where the hell is Teddy? At least he made the show somewhat interesting, if also infuriating. Oh yeah, he’s busy filming guest stints on other shows. Guess he saw the writing on the wall?
Dixon was falling for Silver’s surrogate Michaela, and it took the whole episode for him to profess his feelings to her. Too bad she’s got it for Navid! Oh boy, Navid and Dixon in love with the same woman. This hasn’t been done before. Dixon did at least SEEM to bow out gracefully. We know how well that went with Adrianna the last time though . . .
Naomi was hired by Jordan to plan an affair, a book launch for Author X, who she has no clue is Annie, even though everyone else knows. Noami likes Jordan, but is afraid to tell him so after Max as she doesn’t want to rush into anything and make mistakes like she always does. Wait . . . yes someone finally graduated high school! In the end Annie is exposed, and poor Liam is furious. He feels used by her after the two seconds he read of the book. It will probably take him a few weeks to make it through that entire book to the really bad ending and figure out everything.
Finally Liam and Navid exposed the Cronos cronies for cheating, but Navid is still possibly in hot water and going up before the council. How did he deal with this? By making out with Adrianna, who was crying over breaking up with Silver. Way to move on from high school Adrianna!
The latest “90210″ centered mainly around the opening of Naomi and half-brother Mark’s new restraint, and her attempts to bond with him. Meanwhile Liam, spurned by Annie suggesting he find something he loves to do, tried his hand at making beer. It didn’t go so well. The restaurant opening did though, and Naomi and Mark seemed to bond in the end when Naomi almost died from an allergic reaction to something in Mark’s dish. Mark saved her with an epi-pen.
Annie meanwhile was struggling with her feelings for Liam, and turned in her novel based on her blog to her publisher. Her publisher felt the ending needed something more, and urged Annie to figure out what Annabelle wanted from Leo. Nice names huh! Annie realized she wanted to give it another shot with Liam, and when she got the guts to tell him, he had passed out. We all knew this was where this whole thing was going, and just when they are happy I bet not-so-dead-Reilly resurfaces with the ability to walk. Later Liam thought he found his calling, making custom surfboards.
Silver and Adrianna turned Mark’s old food truck into a mobile documentary machine. What !?!?! Has Adrianna given up on singing again? Navid got kicked out of that Cronos society when he stopped covering for the president’s constant cheating on his girlfriend. Michaela got her big break on stage thanks to Dixon, who failed to tell Silver about it all given Michaela was supposed to be her surrogate and clearly wasn’t going to want to start her career pregnant . . . .
The one positive thing about this episode is that we didn’t have to deal with Teddy and Silver at one another’s throats the whole time.
90210, Castle and Body of Proof, PLL, Smash and Dallas Quick Thoughts . . .
Posted by Dustin on 02.20.2013 at 7:54 pm
Man I sure am having some issues with the shows I tend to watch as of late. They aren’t holding my attention like they use to, and it makes me miss shows like “Desperate Housewives” and “Brothers and Sisters.” A bunch of shows are returning in March, so hopefully they will be a little more exciting.
Shane’s sister and Silver’s surrogate continues to be sketchy. As it turns out she can sing and made sure Dixon heard her singing . . . Something tells me a big ole baby bump will get in the way of her singing career.
Liam had to testify against Ashley the cop and went bonkers, leading his other cop friend to suggest he may have PTSD. Zzzzzzz
Noami ended up tracking down her and Annie’s shared half brother, who is a chef, and they are opening a restaurant together. She’ll be the face end of it, he’ll do the cooking. I had actually completely forgot about their half-brother! It took me a while to remember the whole storyline actually.
Castle and Body of Proof
Both “Castle” and “Body of Proof” ended up doing storylines where the main characters daughters got abducted. Odd! On “Castle” they’ve finally been returning to the senator who is responsible for Becket’s mother’s death. I can only hope “BOP” will bring back the mystery of Megan’s father’s suicide as well. I will say I was not a fan of Peter’s death, the ousting of all the cops and bringing in Mark Valley as her new partner and love interest. What happened to the hunky gardner? Oh yeah he’s on a new TNT show . . .
Pretty Little Liars
This week’s episode and the strange “killing” and disappearance of Detective Wilkins by Hannah’s mom was definitely great. Where did his body go? Is he really dead, or is he on the A team?
Ezra returned and made it known to Aria he wants her in his life. Aria didn’t tell him about getting a little too close to his brother, and Ezra’s mother showed back up and Ezra finally stood up to her and put her in her place. Eh, wasn’t all that thrilled with this part of the show.
Spencer finally broke down at the very end and told Aria that she knew one person who was helping Mona out . . . It looks like she’s finally going to tell the others about Toby, unless there is a huge twist coming. Spencer’s sister Melissa was back too, and we learned once again that Melissa may have had a motive to kill Alison. The night she died Melissa was on a rampage to get a tape she had. The tape we’ve seen bits and pieces of over the year.
I’m not sure where “Smash” is going this season. I liked the first hour, since then it seems to be floundering. Money troubles have tied it up, suddenly they want the whole book re-written, Ivy is acting in a play and Karen is pulling Derrick into her new potential love interest’s emerging-still-being-written musical.
Julia is going head to head with the guy that was hired to help her rewrite “Bombshell’s” book. She hates him, he pushes her buttons, the countdown is on until they sleep together. Recycle plot #48! Meanwhile after Tom coached Ivy to a new job, she suggested he go into directing. I can now see him and Derrick sparing over who will direct Bombshell.
Most of this week’s “Dallas” was about Anne’s day in court for shooting Ryland. He and his mother framed the hell out of her, and it wasn’t looking good. Their daughter Emma overheard Anne and Ryland arguing in the hospital, so she now has some kind of a clue as to what kind of man her dad is. My guess is she’s always known, she’s just been so brainwashed. Christopher pleaded with her to get on the stand and tell the truth for Anne, but she didn’t. When Anne was found guilty, she ran out of the court room. My guess is she’ll find evidence to help Anne out. There has to be cameras in that big ole mansion of theirs, Ryland definitely seems like a paranoid guy to me. If they can get a video of what he said to her, they may be able to prove it was a crime of passion and she reacted to what he told her. I mean hey it’s Texas, doesn’t everyone carry a gun in their purse down there?
John Ross is continuing to undermine Elena in order to get her to default on her loan to his mom so he can snag her shares. However JR continues to learn of John Ross’ betrayals with Cliff and Rebecca. Don’t mess with JR son! Sadly we are coming up on the episode where JR will be shot, and this time he won’t be coming back.
Dallas, Glee, and 90210 Thoughts in a Nutshell . . . .
Posted by Dustin on 02.17.2013 at 8:24 pm
So I am combining a whole lot of thoughts from various shows in one post in order to pump them out and NOT keep falling behind! I’m going to do the same with reality television this week as well.
The Ewings can’t seem to catch a break at all lately. Rebecca got away with murder, having Cliff pin everything on his driver Frank, who took a cyanide capsule at his arraignment and thus couldn’t rat out Rebecca. Once again, how does the judge not see how well everything turns out for this girl? It drives me nuts! Poor Christopher! I was glad to see J.R. tell his son he was hanging on all of Christopher’s droppings!
Meanwhile even though Anne shot Harrison, Bobby took the blame for her. Then when Harrison woke up, he fingered Bobby! Seems his momma put him up to it, and they just want to continue punishing Anne. I wish characters on soaps could learn to use the recording devices on their phones to record people when they share all their secrets. Anne went to Harrison to get a reason out of him! Sure he made sure she didn’t have a wire on, but did he check her phone?
I hate that they are destroying Max and Naomi, again. Make up your mind show!
Teddy demanding Silver use a surrogate was pretty harsh, and bringing in his lover’s little sister to be the surrogate? Oh hell no! Silver should have vetoed that. Shane clearly has some insane agenda with this kid, he has since he found out about it. He pushed Teddy to get custody. He’s up to something. Now it seems his sister has some past with Navid? I wonder if she was one of his dad’s underage “actresses.”
They should just hurry up and put Annie and Liam back together, as we all know that’s where their storylines are going.
I was not happy that we didn’t get the Will and Emma wedding, but somehow knew we wouldn’t. This show has never made it easy for either of these two. Will didn’t find out about Finn and Emma’s kiss, but he eventually does and it’s not pretty. For know he seems to think this is another one of Emma’s freak-outs.
At the failed wedding former lovers reunited, and others experimented. Quinn and Santana got it on! But it was just an experimenting thing for Quinn, because “all college girls do it.”
I was sad that Kurt and Blaine hooked up. I know! But after what Blaine did to Kurt, I was hoping his new guy in New York would treat him right. Now I worry Kurt blew that. Kurt at least opened Tina’s eyes to Blaine though . . .
Finally it seems Rachel is pregnant? But who is the daddy! And is her new boy-toy at NYADA a gigalo?
So I finally got caught up on “90210.” Last week’s dream episode was just plain silly, and this week’s episode was down right depressing!
Dixon continues to be a Dixhead, stealing money Adrianna had been working hard for to buy out her counteract an using it to set a fake scholarship to keep his new girlfriend from having to move back home. When the truth came out it blew up, and both girls are furious with him. Good!
Liam’s life is spiraling out of control after the whole kidnapping thing. He’s become pretty angry, taken up boxing, and looks to be moving on to other things. Wait didn’t “The O.C.” do this story with Ryan’s character already?
Annie was getting her life back together after getting shot by the insane cop. Both the cop and Vanessa are gone. Annie learned about Reily and his surgery to fix his legs. He didn’t want her to know because of the dangers involved, but he was doing it to give her a life with him that he felt he couldn’t currently give her. He made it through the surgery and Annie visited him. All was looking good, until the final few minutes when Annie called the hospital to check up on him and learned a blood clot formed and he was dead. What !?!?! Damn! I am suspicious that he’s not dead, that he had a doctor lie to Annie because things didn’t work out. However this also leads Liam and Annie to possibly get back together.
Things aren’t going much better for Noami either. She found out that Max didn’t go to a gamercon in Switzerland, he went home to stay at mommy and daddy’s house. The bad news kept coming. She ran into her old boss, who’s replacement for Naomi is doing wonderful things and hosting parties around the world. Then she learned Max had decided he wants to go back to school at MIT. Noami blew up at him, realizing they were once again over, because Max doesn’t seem to want to grow up. This pissed me off as I really liked them together!
Finally there was the also depressing story going on with Teddy and Silver. They are in court battling one another and Teddy says the only way he’ll let the embryos be born is if a surrogate carries them. Something tells me Silver is just going to risk her life again with the IVF treatments . . .
So last night was “90210′s” winter finale. It comes back in February I think? My tivo always cuts off the previews for the show. I also have to admit, my tivo’s FF button got a heavy workout last night as well . . . some of the stories just bored me to death.
Adrianna tried to make peace with Dixon, but he wouldn’t have any of that. He then began putting the moves on Megan . . . he was clearly heartbroken over what Adrianna did! He finally told Megan that he was in the car her dad hit, fearing she’d be pissed. Apparently not, as she kissed him and then began to jump his bones. What what ?!?!? I’m not sure if she thinks her dad brought them together, or if this is some act of revenge on him somehow?
Annie found a writing program she wanted to attend, in Scotland. Apparently it’s just impossible to find a writing program in California? Riley wasn’t happy with this news. Later when he saw how happy Annie was that Dixon was all better, he made a call to try and undergo some experimental surgery he’s a candidate for. However it seems a side effect could be death. Hmmm, I’m thinking it’s too bad Dixon didn’t need this treatment!
Teddy and Silver ended up on the outs after Shane returned and had a big talk with Teddy about this baby thing. Shane convinced Teddy that they should be a part of the kids life and he shouldn’t sign his rights away. This put Teddy and Silver against one another. It didn’t seem that she didn’t want Teddy around, but she didn’t want to share. Being from a split home, she knew how much it sucked and she didn’t want this kid going back and forth all the time. That’s what I was feeling at least. Shane meanwhile, given they seem to keep splitting up, and it was Silver who helped them reconcile . . . not sure I’m liking him much right now! I think Teddy should be a part of the kid’s life, but Shane seems to be on a mission for some reason. He’s threatening to use his political pull to sue Silver, and my guess is if Silver goes through with having the kid then she’ll end up losing it completely before it’s born. Guess she better find a new donor!
Max was upset with Naomi for continuing to try and fix things for him, and accused her of liking having him dependent on her. She was determined to find out what Bryce was up to, and used Navid as her tool. She set them up on a date and Navid learned that Alec had been behind Bryce getting Max fired all along. I knew it! When she confronted him she learned why . . . Alec wants Max all to himself because he loves him! Oh brother . . . . I wish they hadn’t spoiled that one on the previews last week honestly. That was the best twist of the show. When Naomi went home, she found Max had flown the coup. He’s at a gamercon in Iceland “thinking.”
Finally Vanessa blackmailed Liam for 1/2 a million bucks, which Annie was prepared to lend him. However Annie wasn’t about to let Liam be taken advantage of. Adrianna earlier in the day saw Vanessa was back, but she didn’t know Vanessa had supposedly “died,” only Annie did. Adrianna made the mistake of telling Liam’s crazy body guard this, and the body guard/cop thought Liam was going back to Vanessa . . . So she kidnapped him! Annie went to the meeting and was stunned to see Vanessa alive, but neither knew where Liam was. He’s now tied up in some basement of a parking garage it seems. Lovely! I don’t think he’s ever gunna find a sane person to be with at this point.
So believe it or not, I’m still watching “90210″ and I have to say I’ve started enjoying it again. At least in comparison to some of the other new shows I tried to picked up and lost interest in. Some I will try and get back into over the December hiatus, like “Revenge” and “Arrow.” I wish I could like “Revolution,” but I’m just struggling with it.
Noami’s story remains my favorite as usual. They should probably just give her her own show really. I did hate the whole story with Alec and his jealousy of her, and I don’t think we’ve seen the last of him. I’m sure he’ll be back to cause problems since Max chose her over him. Speaking of problems, will Alec’s replacement Bryce be a problem? I wouldn’t be shocked if she was somehow working with Alec, or starts working with him on the side . . .
Annie’s boyfriend Colin ended up being a hacker and cyber thief, stealing Max and Alec’s program. It also seems this storyline is just over, and he’s won. Really? I hope he gets what is coming to him! Annie is now dating Riley, who has been helping Dixon with his recovery and stuff. I don’t know, I just don’t trust him either. Annie definitely doesn’t pick the right guys ever. I actually would like to see her get back with Liam at this point.
Adrianna has found herself torn between Dixon, who as usual was acting like a dick, and Taylor, the club promoter. It seemed she was about to dump Dixon for Taylor, but had a change of heart for some damn reason. I guess because she did love him, and he apologized to her and now wants to sign her to some label he’s starting up (with what money?). The previews indicate Dixon will find out the truth about her and Taylor soon. Good! I don’t like Dixon anymore, so Adrianna is better off with someone else.
At the support group Dixon has gone to off and on he made friend with a girl who was there because she lost her dad in a car wreck. Dixon learned her dad is the one who hit him and the car he was in. However he hasn’t told her this yet. Yeah this will come back to bite him in the butt at some point.
Navid became convinced that Liam was getting back with Silver, and ended up sabotaging his relationship with his teacher Lindsey. Like Dixon, I’m over Navid as well. Both of these characters have just become so unlikeable! Liam ended up cutting Navid out of his business, and even Silver seems done with him too. Poor Navid . . . not!
Silver meanwhile is going ahead with her baby idea, and after complications with the drugs it seems it’s a now or never shot. She found this out when with Liam . . . Oh dear! Why do I think Liam is gunna end up being the baby daddy?
Finally Liam has been getting bizarre “I know what you did last month to Vanessa” messages. Who is sending them? My bet is it’s Vanessa herself. However a new “cop” has been assigned to him as a security detail from Liam’s production company to protect him. Well that’s what she said, and Liam didn’t seem to bother to check it out. However by the end of the latest episode, we learned she was just an obsessed fan it seems. Maybe she’s behind the messages?
So I had seen “90210″ on my Tivo, but the title just seemed like the wedding finale from last year. So I didn’t watch it. Last night is when I realize that was the season premier. So I finally made my way through it, and here are my thoughts.
Naomi and Max ended up marrying on an impulse, which probably means this isn’t going to end happily ever after. Max’s business partner Alec seems dead set against Naomi, he knows she broke his heart before and he refuses to let her do it again. It’s clear he’s going to cause problems. Um, has everyone forgotten that when Naomi thought she was pregnant that Max ditched her? I don’t think this should all be put on Naomi.
Navid and Liam both wanted Silver, but she wanted a baby more. Navid was going to give Silver a baby, Liam wasn’t ready for that. Silver didn’t know which guy she liked more . . . and ended up going to Teddy for a baby. In the end Teddy said yes, and Liam and Navid seem to be over Silver for the time being. I don’t think Teddy will end up going through with this honestly. I’m not sure why Silver doesn’t just start freezing eggs?
Vanessa returned and told Liam he had a contract to shoot a movie sequel, and it would cost 200 grand to get out of it. As luck would have it, his bar burned down! It seems the insurance money may cover it, but I don’t think Vanessa is about to let Liam go that easily. Something worries me that Liam and Annie will end up hooking up again. They really need some new blood for these kids!
In Vegas Adrianna hooked up with a new guy to try and get Dixon out of her head. He however turned out to be the club promoter who was supposed to come see her perform. However she had to jet after learning about Dixon’s accident, so she never went on.
Dixon is of course alive. This was spoiled over the summer in photos from the set. I’m just not a fan of his character and wouldn’t mind him going away. I am glad it brought Annie and Dixon’s mom back, even if only briefly. It’s silly that we never see any of these kids parents anymore. Dixon is alive, and now Adrianna is by his side. However the club promoter from Vegas has shown up in town looking for her . . . stalkerish much? He met up with Navid, who seems to have decided to take over (or partner with) Liam’s bar. He and this new guy also struck a deal to promote the beach bar . . . but it’s clear this guy only wants Adrianna. I have a feeling Adrianna is only going to stay with Dixon out of guilt though.

More Casting News for Fall 2012 + Spoiler Photos and Videos!
Posted by Dustin on 08.05.2012 at 5:12 pm
Michael Raymond-James, probably best known to many as Renee from the first season of “True Blood,” has landed a recurring role on “Once Upon A Time.” At this time it’s not known who he will actually be playing. Also Collin O’Donoghue has been cast as Captain Hook on the show. Source: TVGuide.com
Word has already gotten out that Eric Dane aka McSteamy is leaving “Grey’s Anatomy” in the upcoming season after only a few shows. Now leaked photos twittered by Patrick Dempsey suggest how that may happen! The photos showed Eric’s character Mark Sloan in a bed and on life support. Another photo showed Callie sitting by his bed side. Dempsy was later asked to remove the pictures, but by then they had made it to several sites.
Ryan Murphy revealed one of the first images from “American Horror Story” season two on his twitter. The image shows Adam Levine in what appears to be tunnels below the asylum shining a light on a painting of “Bloody Face.” It looks like this is the new big bad of the season. Also the new season will be titled “American Horror Story: Asylum.” The season is supposed to be focused on real life horror and insanity, and less on supernatural elements.
According to Deadline.com Jessica Parker Kennedy (formerly of “The Secret Circle”) will join “90210″ this upcoming season in the recurring role of Megan, a young girl involved in a therapy group with one of the main characters. Also Zap2It is reporting that Lindsey McKeon will be a mentor character to Silver this season over her medical issues with breast cancer and the Braca gene. McKean is probably best known for roles on “Supernatural” and “One Tree Hill.”
