90210 Evaluation Results

2 06 2010

Thanks to all who voted in the second annual 90210 Evaluation.

FAVORITE CHARACTERS

Winners: Annie, Liam

Noteworthy: Silver had the lead early on, with Naomi having no votes at all. In the end, Silver fell short by six votes and Naomi managed to score 11. Liam more than doubled the votes Navid received and earned about 5 times as many as Dixon.

Last Season’s Winners: Silver, Liam

Thoughts: What a difference a year makes! Last season, readers voted Annie the worst character. Either I’ve got some new readers (or lost a few) or this season really put you in Annie’s corner. I was surprised to see Silver did so well, since I’ve read many complaints about her storylines this season and personality changes. Your love for Liam, however, is just as strong, if not stronger. Does this bode well for an Annie-Liam coupling next season?

FAVORITE COUPLE

Winner: Adrianna and Navid

Noteworthy: A few pairings didn’t receive any votes, but most interesting to me was that the three-highest vote-getters after Navianna all included Dixon and/or Silver. Dixon and Ivy came in second while Dixon and Silver tied Silver and Teddy for third place. Looks like Dixon couple love but not Dixon character love (see above and below).

Last Season’s Winner: Adrianna and Navid

Thoughts: I wasn’t surprised that Adrianna and Navid won again, even though they didn’t win the character polls, since the show is short on “supercouples.” It seems to me that fans are much less divided over Navianna than the other “major” couples that have been presented thus far.

WORST CHARACTERS

Winners: Naomi, Dixon

Noteworthy: Despite winning best character, Annie came close to “winning” here, too, with less than 10 votes separating her from Naomi. Dixon “won” by a huge amount–Navid and Liam weren’t even close, truly reflecting the opposite of the best character results, but with a larger margin.

Last Season’s Winners: Annie, Ethan

Thoughts: While I have little respect for Naomi, I had the impression others were fans or at least entertained by her, so I wasn’t quite expecting this. I did expect Dixon earning the title, based on comments I’ve seen from people wishing Tristan had better, more challenging storylines. I guess, at this point, he should consider himself lucky the writers aren’t making him follow the path of last season’s winner in this category.

WORST COUPLE

Winner: Naomi and Liam

Noteworthy: Liomi narrowly “beat” Annie and Jasper. Validating what I said above about nearly all viewers standing behind Adrianna and Navid, the couple received zero votes in this category–and was the only duo to do so.

Last Season’s Winner: Annie and Ethan

Thoughts: Liomi and Annie and Jasper were two pairings that I’ve seen really split the audience. That said, I think that’s true for some of the other pairings as well, such as Silver and Teddy (who came in third) and even Dixon and Ivy. I guess my point is that I could’ve seen any of these couples earning this title, as well as some of the others.

FAVORITE SUPPORTING CHARACTER

Winner: Ivy

Noteworthy: Most options didn’t receive any votes–including Harry–but Kelly came in second and Teddy in third. There were two votes for Mr. Cannon, which post-finale, I don’t really understand.

Last Season’s Winner: Kelly

Thoughts: Ivy and Teddy’s results bode well for the show, as both characters have been upgraded from recurring guest stars to series regulars. I’ve seen a lot of questions around the web asking where Kelly is and the poll indicates people still want to see her on the show–sorry folks; there are no plans in the works for that…but never say never. On the flipside, I’m not sure how to read Harry getting zero votes: a sign of dislike for the character, which means it’s a “win” for the show that he’s done, or a sign of indifference, since people know he’s gone and therefore there isn’t a point in voicing support for him.

BEST STORYLINE

Winner: Annie and Liam’s friendship

Noteworthy: No one came close to Annie/Liam and the second-highest was Annie related as well–the season-long hit-and-run storyline. The other storylines with multiple votes: the plan to take down Jen, Adrianna all season, Navianna’s relationship, Ade’s singing career Jen all season and Liomi’s relationship. Some of the more interesting responses: “Jasper and his crazy ass,”  and “annie and her GUILT~!” and “all of them – i cant decide!”

Invalid Others: None

Last Season’s Winner: Adrianna and Navid’s relationship

Thoughts: Pleased to see people following the “focus on this season only” rule and selecting the right option. It’s quite remarkable that Annie and Liam won considering their storyline isn’t romantic and only really revved up in the last batch of episodes. I may just have a lot of Lannie readers, which is fine by me (and, of course, it’s fine to have fans of anyone or everyone else, too).

WORST STORYLINE

Winner: Naomi’s false then real harassment and Annie/Jasper’s relationship

Noteworthy: Only one vote separated those from the second place tie, which was Liomi’s relationship and Teddy/Silver’s relationship. The other ones to get multiple votes: Adrianna’s singing career and Jasper in general. Some of my favorite responses: “The whole Annie/Jasper thing. Made me scream at the TV EVERY single week,” “everything involving jen” and “Annie’s hit and run … when will it end?!”

Invalid Others: None

Last Season’s Winner: Annie in the season finale

Thoughts: I’m surprised and not surprised about Annie/Jasper since, as I said above, I think the pairing gave many mixed feelings but people liked Annie enough this season to vote her best character.

BEST CLIFF-HANGER

Winner: Naomi seemingly about to be raped by Mr. Cannon

Noteworthy: Most of the votes were for things from the finale, such as Liam and Jasper’s fight (second place) and Annie confessing (third place). But the ending with Naomi won by a large margin. Some of the answers: “Naomi’s Possible Rape. So Devastating! That guy should go back to Dawsons Creek,” “The finale.. What will happen with liam beating Jasper? Naomi get raped? “the finale there were so many!” and “WHAT DID ANNIE TELL HER PARENTS/where was dixon going with that hat on (kidding).”

Invalid Others: None

Last Season’s Winner: Adrianna’s drug overdose

Thoughts: For all the talk of the finale not delivering, there were some interesting cliff-hangers, even if they weren’t quite what people were expecting, and clearly you guys agree. I was surprised there weren’t more votes for Jasper about to commit suicide and the mid-season finale where Jasper told Annie he knew she ran over his uncle.

RATE THE SEASON OVERALL

Winner: 9

Noteworthy: All values were voted for and only 2 votes separated 9 from 8.

Last Season’s Winner: 7.5

Thoughts: Quite frankly, I expected a lower rating given the response to the finale–I thought it would color people’s view of the season overall. But, as many critics have said, quite a few believe the show has improved a lot from last year, which makes the increase in rating by 1.5 not that surprising.

RATE THE SHOW OVERALL

Winner: 7

Noteworthy: The only value not voted for–2. The second-highest vote-getter was 10, followed by 8 and 9, respectively.

Last Season’s Winner: 7.5

Thoughts: And throwing a kink in my “show improved” theory is the response here, where the rating decreased from last season. But, as I said, 10 came close to winning–like one vote away close–so I don’t know what to really conclude.

The Teen Drama Evaluation, with the results from all three polls going head-to-head, will be posted tomorrow.

I love Lannie! I was part of the majority for most of these answers. I did vote for Annie/Jasper midseason cliffhanger at the winter ball though. I can’t wait for tomorrow’s poll. I have no idea who I’m gonna vote for.

I never like Annie in the first season as she was really annoying, but she definately won me over this season:) I never know a lot of people also started to like her but glad they did. The Liam and Annie relationship definately has potential for long term.

I think the reason why the cliffhangers you mentioned didn’t get many votes is because the finale’s cliffhangers are still fresh in viewer’s minds. For me, I’m not an avid fan so it was difficult evaluating this show. I sometimes forget about plot points and storylines. 90210 is not my fav show by far.

I’m so glad Liam and Annie won 🙂 I love them but I didn’t know so much people love them too.And Annie is my favorite character so this is amazing that she won “favorite character” because she was hated last season.
