Random Thought

31 01 2009

So it’s still not clear whether or not One Tree Hill will be back for a seventh season–and if it is, whether Chad Michael Murray (Lucas) will be a part of the cast.

Regardless, I’ve come up with an idea for a spin-off centered around…Brooke!

Given the storylines in seasons 5 and 6, I envision Brooke (Sophia Bush) returning to New York where she tries to reclaim her company–Clothes Over Bros–from her manipulative mother, Victoria (Daphne Zuniga).  While there, she struggles to balance jumping back into her high-profile career with raising Sam (Ashley Rickards) and perhaps even another foster baby.

She would be single and casually dating until Julian (Austin Nichols) comes back into her life.

So what do you think?  Should I pitch it to Mark? 😉

Love Triangles Pt. 6: 90210

31 01 2009

Today is the last post in the series The Essential Teen Drama Love Triangles.  This week we looked at Beverly Hills 90210, Dawson’s Creek, The O.C., One Tree Hill and Gossip Girl.  And last, but certainly not least…

TODAY: 90210


How It Started: When Annie moves to Beverly Hills, she’s happy to see her one-time crush Ethan.  Her excitement ends when she catches Ethan receiving oral sex at school–and not by his girlfriend Naomi.  Ethan, intrigued now that Annie is back and unhappy with Naomi, breaks up with her.

How It Ended: Ethan’s interest in Annie has to be put on hold when she starts seeing Ty, her co-star in the school musical.  In the meantime, Ethan and Naomi  get back together but when he and Annie work together on a school project, the two grow closer and soon start an exclusive relationship.

Key Episodes: 1.1-1.11

YouTube Evidence: Naomi & Ethan It’s Over; Ethan & Annie Crush


How It Started: When new West Beverly teacher Ryan meets guidance counselor Kelly, he’s instantly attracted to her despite the large age difference.  Kelly is especially hesitant because she is a single parent to Sammy (whose father is Dylan).  Ryan and Kelly go on a few dates before she leaves town to see Dylan.

How It Ended: When Kelly returns, she notices Brenda is giving her the cold shoulder and calls her out on it.  Brenda’s reason: “I slept with Ryan.”  And so the Brenda-Kelly war over a man begins again…

Key Episodes: 1.2-1.4, 1.6, 1.10-1.12

YouTube Evidence: I actually cannot find anything!  Anyone have anything?





Spoiler: You Ask, I Answer

You are the best for 90210 scoop, Korbs! So excited about Donna Martin’s return, but do you really know for sure that she and David are still married? -Linds
Yep. They’re still hitched and co-habitating in Japan. But Donna’s contemplating a move back to BH, because she’s not happy overseas. However, if she does relocate, her already rocky relationship with David will be in real danger. Best cast scenario? Donna opens a store on Robertson and while here, David returns to be with her. Brian Austin Green tells me he’s down. And if Terminator tanks after its upcoming move to Friday, he’ll be freed up to do so.

Love Triangles Pt. 5: Gossip Girl

30 01 2009







How It Started: Everyone on the Upper East Side is shocked when “it girl” Serena suddenly leaves town.  Then when she returns a few months later, her best friend Blair is even more shocked when she finds out why Serena left town in the first place: because she slept with Blair’s longtime boyfriend, Nate.

How It Ended: Upon Serena’s return to the city, Nate–who is still with Blair–struggles with his feelings for both girls.  Serena isn’t interested in him, though, and works to repair her friendship with Blair.  Meanwhile, Blair and Nate work things out and continue to date.

How It Ended: When Blair has a pregnancy scare a few weeks later, someone tells Gossip Girl that Nate might not be the babydaddy.  Blair isn’t pregnant, but the damage is already done: Nate finds out about their one-night-stand, breaking up with her and ending his friendship with Chuck.  Chuck, likewise, rejects Blair telling her, “I don’t want you anymore and I can’t see why anyone else would.”  Blair and Chuck spend the rest of the season inching towards a relationship and then pulling back.  In the season finale, Nate and Chuck repair their friendship and he gives Chuck his blessing.

Love Triangles Pt. 4: One Tree Hill

29 01 2009






How It Started: Lucas had a crush on his half-brother’s girlfriend, Peyton, but ended up dating her best friend Brooke in season one.  It wasn’t long, though, before Lucas and Peyton couldn’t hide their mutual attraction and began sneaking around Brooke’s back.  When Brooke found out the real reason Lucas broke up with her, she ended her friendships with both of them, and the Leyton versus Brucas war began.

How It Ended: Peyton and Lucas realized they couldn’t move forward with their relationship after hurting Brooke so much.  By the end of season two, Lucas realized how much he missed Brooke and in the beginning of season 3 they got back together.  At the end of the season, however, Peyton also realized that she was in love with Lucas and told Brooke–effectively ending their friendship.  Brooke broke up with Lucas, in part because of this, in the beginning of season 4.  It took some time but Lucas finally realized he was in love Peyton, too, and Brooke gave them her blessing.

How It Ended: On their wedding day, Lindsey leaves Lucas at the altar after realizing that he is still in love with Peyton.  Lucas spends the next few months trying to get Lindsey back and blaming Peyton for their break-up.  Season 5 ends with a love triangle cliff-hanger: Lucas is at the airport and calls someone, asking “Do you want to get married tonight?”  It isn’t until the season 6 premiere that we find out he called Peyton.  She accepts his new proposal and they get engaged.

Is Christina still on 90210? If so, what will happen between her and Dixon? — Diamonde
MICKEY: Lauren London’s appearance on next week’s episode is the last for which she is contracted. It’s unclear what the producers intended Christina’s legacy to be — she wasn’t exactly a new love interest for Dixon — but at least we got to use the term “lesbian cheerleader” here on the site!

Mickey’s Mini Rant: We love Desmond Harrington as Dexter‘s shady Joey Quinn, but his one-dimensional portrayal of Gossip Girl‘s nefarious Uncle Jack, a sweaty-faced cokehead flailing to steal Chuck’s inheritance, fell flat on its Bass.
