Random comment, but I noticed that 90210 is using the same school from The O.C. For a second it really confused me because it looked so familiar lol. I guess it’s not really surpising since I think they use a lot of the same places. I thought I would put that out there anyways 😉

Good eye, Alyssa. I believe another commenter (Brandon, I think it was) pointed this out last week as well.

Great recap!

So did I miss the part where Jen and Naomi moved out of the house from the end of last season and into the new one? I might be expecting too much but a simple line could have cleared that up. I was thinking perhaps Jen didn’t want to deal with cleaning the mess from Naomi’s party bit where would they get the money to buy a place that huge. Has Jen been scamming rich guys all summer? Or am I just out of it, and it is the same house?

Mount St. Marys is growing on me for the exterior of West Bev. Anything that looks more like Torrance is fine with me. However turning the blaze into a video newspaper doesn’t feel realistic to me. I dated a girl that went to San Dimas high school and was on her highschool paper and they still printed it. Online paper I could buy, but this is like the death of journalism. And like the nerd I am I’m going to take overhead shots of all of the high schools used for west bev and try to make them mesh into one campus. Oh I also don’t like the new set, looks more like a hotel then a high school.

I thought the whole scene between Jen and Naomi regarding naomi’s optimistic attiude was poorly done. I so wanted Valerie Malone style
blackmail out of this storyline, but I guess you can’t have everything. :p

final note: I was surprised they didn’t flaunt Jennie Garth in the episode promo, isn’t she in the next ep?

Brandon: Nope, you didn’t miss anything. It wasn’t addressed at all so I’ll just chalk it up as a continuity error.

Speaking of continuity, your point about using St. Marys and the old overhead shots is another incongruity. But I imagine they’re doing it so viewers do think it is in fact the same school. Not every has a keen eye like you and Alyssa!

I am more accepting of the Blaze’s transition (though I do have nostalgia for the good ol’ days of the print edition). As someone in the journalism field, I totally buy that a school has gone this route.

Any scene with Jen was poorly done, IMO, just because it’s so hard to roote for her character. Who exactly did you want blackmailed Valerie Malone style? And by who? At least with Val, we loved to hate her. Jen I just hate.

I’m not sure when Jennie returns. IMDB should be able to tell you. The issue of including her in the promo is a double-edged sword: they’ve said they want to move away from the old cast and the stunt appearances, so a promo with her would go against that and look like they are just trying to get people to watch because of her. But, it would likely work and get people excited and grow the audience, so it’s probably in their best interest to it. Then again, there may be people out there that don’t like her and are tired of her appearances, so it of course wouldn’t work for those people. And there’s always the promos and sneak peeks that are released during the week. She could be in those.

To answer your question regarding the blackmailing, I thought it could have been more interesting to see Naomi holding the nude picture over Annie’s head as blackmail I don’t think I will ever like any of these “bitchy” characters as much as I liked Valerie Malone, but I think the sext came out too soon. I’ll be disappointed if there’s not an attempt to discipline Naomi over this – which leaves me wondering if she did infact send it as anonymous.

What’s your opinion on moving away from using the vets? Last season I found myself wanting to see the vets, but I’ve actually been entertained this year. The only bad thing still, sadly, is the opening titles.

And, the scene between Harry and Ryan – if they haven’t completely dropped the storyline about Harry’s son with Tracy, I’m still holding out for the revelation that Ryan is their son. I’m not buying the sudden “bro” vibe between the two of them, I liked the clashing personalities.

Hmm. I wonder what Naomi could’ve done with the photo if she was using it as blackmail. Like, what would she have wanted Annie to do? You brought up 2 great questions–will Naomi face consequences and did she really send it anonymously. I hope this isn’t one of those things that just gets “dropped.”

I haven’t taken a strong likely to ANY of the new characters or couples, so that makes me yearn for the vets. But every time they’re on, I get pissed off at how much they’ve changed the history of BH90210, where the characters ended up and what they’re like now.

That’s a great point about Harry and Ryan. I don’t know if that storyline will get revisited, but the Ryan theory has been floating around among fans for a while now. Would be interesting to see it play out. The “bro” vibe, as you called it, did seem random considering how they interacted in the past, which I did like better than this.
