90210 recapping: vegas, maybe?

These 90210 kids know how to live it up in Las Vegas! Thanks to hanging with “celeb” Liam, they get access to the hottest VIP pool party in what could pass as a backyard pool in the Valley. Yes, the gang—even Teddy—took a spontaneous trip to Vegas simply because Naomi wanted to follow her new boyfriend Austin. Apparently no one has any responsibilities like school or work, oh except for Silver who is somehow the most critical campaign staffer to politician Marissa (wow, that is not a good sign Brandy!). Fortunately for us, but unfortunately for the kiddos, their problems follow them to Sin City and lead to very fun moments!

  • Happy Birthday Mr. Austin! Naomi wants to be the best girlfriend ever to Austin, especially since he isn’t normally into the whole relationship thing. She even has her chef prepare breakfast, so that she can focus on the “in bed” part. Therefore, she is shocked when he blows town without her to spend his birthday in Vegas with his father. Naomi is not one to take a hint, so she immediately gathers her “sad and pathetic” crew to all head to Vegas so that she doesn’t have to go “sad and pathetically” alone. Turns out daddy is a total jerk “country singer super star” named Judd who constantly tells his son what a disappointment he is. This explains why Austin doesn’t want Naomi there—even he doesn’t want to be there. I often wonder if the writers pull costume ideas for Naomi out of a hat each week and then make it their creative writing challenge to build her story around it. This week my suspicion was confirmed, again, in that Naomi had to sneak into Judd’s party for his son and to do so she wrangled the Marilyn Monroe outfit off the impersonator—and ended up serenading Austin as the blonde bombshell. But Naomi did more than that for her boyfriend—she told Judd off for being so horrible to his son. Too bad that was the one birthday gift Austin didn’t want, because he got pissed that Naomi meddled into his business.
  • An escort in every city: Surprise, surprise. Raise your hand if you were surprised that Daddy Warbucks—ahem, Annie’s older rich dude Patrick—was hooking up with other ladies while out of town on “business.” Oh Annie, do you not recall how you met him? Hmm let’s see…while he was in town on “business” and he paid for you. However, the funniest part of this entire story was when Annie was casually laying by the pool and just happened to see a hotel staff person walk by with a sign for the so-called “Regional Asset Allocation Convention.”  That has to be the most fake-sounding uber-important vague convention name ever. Nonetheless, Annie knew this was the convention that Patrick was attending! So she took the opportunity to slut it up (hey, when in Vegas) and surprise her man. But first she took a moment to fawn over how gorgeous she and Naomi looked for “their men” and then tell single-gal Silver in the world’s most condescending voice: “Silver, you look really pretty.” How nice of her to throw a compliment bone over to Silver too! Her superior smile didn’t last for long when she watched Patrick make out with another woman. Annie isn’t quite ready to call it quits yet though—her rose-colored glasses may be broken but she still needs Patrick for his money.
  • She works hard for the money: Actually, is Silver even getting paid for her campaign work, or is she just the world’s most naïve intern? Basically, Marissa can barely function without her teenage videographer for 2 days, so Silver spends her entire Vegas vacation “working.” She does find time to help a friend in need when she proposes an interesting idea: proposing! You see, Teddy is on a break from his uncle’s campaign trail and Silver goes out of her way to not only get Teddy and his sort-of boyfriend Shane to come to Vegas, but she also proposes that Teddy and Shane have a fake wedding in Vegas so that Teddy can experience his fairytale. I am borderline on this one—kind of a sweet idea, kind of creepy in that it is Silver’s awkward intrusion. Anyways, this entire real-yet-fake wedding—captured on camera thanks to Silver—will come back to slap “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas” in the face. Silver accidentally sends the marriage ceremony footage to Marissa, who is running against Teddy’s uncle. Not sure why this will be so terrible, given that Teddy’s uncle wants his gay nephew to score him cool points. But, I am sure we will find out!
  • Addicted to Vegas: A few of our boys grappled with addictions tonight—Dixon with his drugs and Liam with his abs. Actually, it was more that this random dude was addicted to Liam’s abs and invited Liam to an invite-only high stakes poker game. Awkward much? One-billboard wunderkind Liam was all about living the high life thanks to his modeling money, and for a while I thought we were going to have to endure the cliché of Liam losing all of his money. Fortunately, he rebounded to almost break even and called it quits. Dixon, on the other hand, struggled to keep his junkie nerves under wraps and desperately clung to his buddies in an effort to stay clean despite the temptations of Sin City. Before leaving Vegas he even brushed off Ade’s concerns by saying, “It’s not like the minute I get to Vegas I’m going to turn into a drug fiend…haha [nervous laughter and beady eyes].” Ade knew better thanks to her own tumultuous past and apparently flew to Vegas, got the hotel room key, and hooked up with Dixon to calm him down. Great, way to give Dixon a sex addiction now too. Annie was none too pleased to catch Ade and her bro together in the room, with a bag of drugs. But Dixon fessed up saying that Ade was actually the only one who saved him from going further down that drug-fueled road. The verdict is still out on which girl is more annoying for being holier-than-thou: Annie’s obnoxious relationship and addiction advice despite being a paid escort, or Ade’s portrayal of ‘Adrianna the Patron Saint of Troubled Young Men.’
  • Hot Purse-suit: Navid and his female cop buddy were on a hot trail to catch dear ole’ Uncle Felony in the act. On his way to Vegas, Uncle Amal gave Navid a special delivery hidden in a total man-purse to take to Vegas. Seriously, couldn’t he have put it in a backpack or something less awkward? Because Navid’s buddies certainly enjoyed giving him a hard time about the “murse,” especially when Navid looked like the weird kid at the pool who couldn’t part with his safety object. Navid lost the purse for a little while—shocker—but eventually found it and got wire-tapped before making the drop. Too bad for him that Silver walked in on the wire-tapping and the cop kissed Navid to cover their true actions. All of that great sleuthing was for nothing because this special delivery was just a test. But, the next time will be for fo’ real.

All in all, I found this Vegas episode to be highly entertaining. I think this gang has the most fun when they take crazy trips because it actually serves to bring everyone’s issues all together. Oh, except for poor Ivy, who continues to be sidelined out of grievance and support for Raj. Before I close, I just want to highlight how amusing it was that everyone kept thinking Dixon’s problem with Vegas was that he used to have a gambling addiction, but Dixon knows that problem is, like, so yesterday. Seriously, get with the times people—and get your problems straight before you go out confronting others!

90210 recapping: it’s the great masquerade, naomi clark

Here is a Halloween Paradox to consider as we begin tonight’s exploration of the 90210 Masquerade episode: why is it that the girls of this show routinely wear barely a scrap of clothing for a coffee run, yet on the one night of the year that a typical girl sluts it up with minimal attire, the 90210 girls wear very covered-up and non-trashy costumes? I mean, Annie was a Disney princess—not a slutty princess! And Silver was a wiener—but not a sexual one! Adrianna was a jailbird—not a ho-bag! What is happening?! Halloween brings out strange and creepy behaviors in 90210-land.

  • Confessions of a Teenage Party Queen: It seems like practically every week Naomi must throw some insane Greek party without concern for budget. Oh wait, that is because that actually does happen every week. Once again, Naomi is faced with the excruciating challenge of being a college student solely to coordinate lavish parties that would make Kim Kardashian’s wedding seem understated. This time around, Naomi cannot fail in planning the perfect soiree for the campus Halloween bash since apparently their school somehow competes with other schools for best party to earn legit prize money (say whaaaaat?). Rather than deal with Holly as a Greek Council enemy, Naomi reaches out to seek Holly’s help in planning the event. The duo works pretty well together, coming up with ideas that seemed novel about 10 years ago on The Real World (i.e. video confessional booth and texting funny notes to a party screen). But then we find out “what happens…when people stop being polite…and start getting real.” Holly actually used the situation to set Naomi up by having her record a private confession to Austin about her genuine feelings, which Holly broadcasted to the college world. Naomi’s party may have backfired on her when Holly got the Dean to shut it down, but in the end Naomi got the guy—cowboy Austin—when he watched her confession of love.
  •  A Wiener in Need of Buns—and Brains: Silver dresses as a giant hot dog for Halloween, proving that “parents” of teenagers will always find ways to be embarrassing. Unfortunately, Navid’s “buns” cannot attend the party because he is too busy sticking his real buns where they don’t belong. Yup, Navid is still going along with the young cop’s plans to frame his uncle, and that means Navid needs to play along and prove his allegiance to Uncle Amal. Silver is ready to trust Navid again, thanks to a pep talk from her boss Brandy (i.e. politician Marissa), but Navid makes a show of banishing Silver in front of his dear Uncle. Not only does Silver lose her faith in Navid, but she gets a double whammy when she learns that Marissa actually uses paid actors for her campaign videos—GASP! Oh Silver, please go to college and learn how the world works.
  • fABulous: Poor Liam, his abs are just so perfect that girls from miles around come to gawk at him and pet him and giggle at him…OK, so it is annoying. Liam’s abs are causing a stir, but you know our boy Liam—he just doesn’t want the attention, dude. Austin, on the other hand, does want it! Badly! Actually, it is a little disturbing just how badly Austin wants girls to touch his abs. Anyways, Ade continues to try to act like the good guardian angel and offers Liam the careful advice of…uhhh…sell out for mad money! But, oh, just don’t let the fame go to your head and F**k up your life like I did, but other than that, just have, like, a blast with it and pimp yourself! Awww thanks for the heartfelt advice, Ade! Liam goes ahead and reveals his face for the ad campaign. He doesn’t waste a single second putting his new money to use—he immediately buys a motorcycle and admires his beautiful billboard! Even Liam swoons over his own abs.
  • A Barrel of Creepiness: The Annie-Patrick “Pretty Woman” relationship continues to creep me out. Not only do we have the fact that it began as a paid escort situation, and the fact that there is a very significant age difference only made worse thanks to Annie’s immaturity, but now we are seeing some disturbing ownership-like behavior on Patrick’s part. He sends her clothing and arranges their plans while telling her exactly where to be and when. When she claims to have super important other plans—like researching celebrity bloggers for a class project and attending a masquerade party—he arranges to have Perez Hilton just stop by to help free up her schedule. I was quite proud of ‘Pretty Stupid Woman’ Annie for holding her ground and not just giving in to Patrick’s red-flag relationship behavior. But then I grew majorly concerned when he showed up the college party dressed in nothing but a barrel and texting her a public apology for treating her “like a princess.” Oh Annie, can you not see how this is going to end so badly for you? I guess not, because you leapt into his barrel with open arms. Watch out for those splinters.
  • Quality Bond(age) Time: I cannot imagine a crueler punishment than being handcuffed to Adrianna for 24 hours. If that didn’t scare Dixon straight into stopping his ADD pill addiction, I don’t know what will. As previously mentioned, Ade is still on a mission to make amends for her previous season grievances by offering concern and counsel to her boys—Liam and Dixon. In Dixon’s case, she seems to be the only one who recognizes signs of drug abuse. What’s a good friend to do? Why break into your friend’s house and wait to confront him in an after-school special moment, of course! And when that fails, handcuff yourself to him for 24 hours to make him prove he doesn’t have a problem. Then, to really torture him, insist that you go to a Halloween party in a couples costume of cop and robber. Dixon makes it through the 24 hours—just barely—and I am barely convinced that he wasn’t sweating and experiencing withdrawal symptoms simply from the trauma of being chained to Ade. Nevertheless, upon a few moments of freedom, he finds his math nerds at the party and scores more pills, while in his cop uniform which is nice irony.
  • Ivy was there: Ivy still doesn’t have anything to do other than pretend like she matters. That and take photos of her own friends to insert Raj into the pictures. We all know that they are saving Ivy’s acting juices for when Raj hits the end. And who will be there to pick up the pieces of Ivy? Why cutie photographer Nick! Just one question: what was Ivy’s costume supposed to be?

I continue to enjoy the show’s absurd and amusing story lines. Before signing off for the night, I do want to give a shout out to my favorite moment. I loved when the random guy at the bar got Adrianna as his waitress and asked to try a new drink: a Has-been Pop Star! Ha, this just proves that the show can take itself lightly and have fun with itself.

90210 recapping: party politics

[Editor’s note: This week’s recap was written by Jeni’s friend Karyn for Show and Tell. Aside from this substitution (an example of superior friendship skills btw!) it’s still the same great recappery you’ve come to know and love. –Nicole]

As you may have noticed, I am not Jeni.  I am, however, a huge fan of 90210 (did I really just admit that?) so I will try my best to fill Jeni’s shoes while she is out of town on business travel.  So let’s get down to business and dive into some “Party Politics!”

  • 2 Guys and a Girl…and Ade: Jim is alive!  To echo what Jeni has already said, I’m still not sure why we are supposed to concern ourselves with these characters (has anyone else noticed that their names are Jane and Jim?) but I guess it is a big deal when someone who is supposedly dead comes back to say hello.  After Jim promises to leave town, and after Ade promises not to tell Liam about Jim’s return, Jim shows up at the bar and Liam could not have shown any less emotion when declaring, “you’re alive.”  Thanks Liam.  They proceed to take a long walk on the beach and Jim leads them to believe that he is in the dark about their little romance and Liam and Jane agree that it’s best not to let him in on the “secret.”  But after Ade exposes Jim (shocker) in his lie to Liam, Liam gets all fired up and engages Jim in an amazingly choreographed fight…and it isn’t until Jane gets pushed into a wall and Liam blurts out that she’s pregnant that the boys seem to come to their senses.  They decide to put their boyish ways behind them and Jim basically offers his wife to Liam, because yes, after a month long fling it seems really plausible that Jane loves Liam more than her dead husband.  Liam, being the good guy that he is, is happy to have his friend back and agrees to let Jane go.  Isn’t he supposed to be recovering from his rejected proposal (both of them) from Annie? 
  • Love Triangle: Naomi has the hots for Austin, but won’t admit it.  Austin has the hots for Naomi, and finally does admit it.  And then there’s poor Max who is totally clueless.  He’s just happy to be helping his girlfriend with the ‘get out the vote’ campaign.  So at the Strip to Vote party, which included none other than Cobra Starship as the musical guest and Brandy (yes, Brandy, aka Moesha) as a politician, Max catches Naomi and Austin half naked about to kiss in the back of an overheated van.  I will gloss over the absurdity of this entire party because it’s just so ridiculous and will skip to the part where Naomi comes clean about having slept with Austin before Max’s return.  I know that Max was out of the picture when Naomi and Austin got together that one time, but it seems to me that Max was incredibly understanding when he found his girlfriend about to get it on with the hot cowboy.  I’m not sure how this love triangle will progress in the future, but I’m excited to find out!
  • Teddy is Back!: I must say that I’m sad that Trevor Donovan is no longer a series regular because he’s probably my favorite character these days.  After being mysteriously gone for 3 episodes, er excuse me, playing tennis in Barcelona, he returns to our favorite zip code without having ever received a return phone call from his father.  However, his politician uncle seems to be welcoming him with open arms.  It’s later revealed that said uncle is a well known homophobe and, according to Teddy’s summer fling who randomly shows up in Cali to support Brandy in her campaign efforts, he’s just using Teddy.  I’m not sure how many more episodes Teddy is scheduled to appear in, but this is an interesting story line to start knowing that he’s not a regular.  In true 90210 fashion, it will probably be wrapped up in 2 weeks.
  • Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s an Escort: Acting as the mature college freshmen that they are, Navid and Silver take it upon themselves to essentially confine Leila to house arrest.  Oh, by the way, Leila has returned from where ever she was the last episode.  Anyhow, the two ‘parents’ really want some alone time together and decide that it’s ok for the grounded Leila to go out with the babysitter, Annie, to dinner with some friends.  Leila is no fool and she soon discovers Annie’s little PG secret, promising not to tell as long as she can get a cut on the action.  Meanwhile, Silver discovers Navid’s dirty money, confronts him on it, and then tells him she can’t be with him if he doesn’t come clean.  I get why she’s upset and I get why he can’t confess.  What I don’t get is why the writers are messing with this relationship.  It seems like the one love story that is actually believable and I hope they don’t break them up for good.  As a side note, I suppose I should mention that Silver is now tasked with making campaign videos for Brandy.

Dixon and Ivy get honorable mentions for appearing in this episode, but not offering much.  Although I do appreciate Ivy and Naomi’s dynamic.  But it seems like these two characters will get their screen time next week, where it looks like we are headed down a dark path.

What did you think of tonight’s Party Politics?  Do you think Naomi will choose Max or Austin?  Will Annie’s secret be exposed?  And will Jim and Jane just go away already?

90210 recapping: let the games begin

It was a slow start to the games this week, as I was a tad bored for the first part of this episode. But the action and absurdity picked up the pace in the later half. Grab an orange and some super-slippery sunscreen and let’s dive in to “Let the Games Begin!”

  • Naomi is ReuNERDed! …and it feels so confusing! Naomi was still hell-bent on enacting revenge upon Holly and her pink velour-wearing Kappa army. Her own rag-tag sorority—who continue to be the best girls on this show—unfortunately don’t stand much of a chance of winning the Greek games against a bunch of bratty girls who jog in matching outfits. Oh, unless the games consist of things that are entirely non-athletic, like pie-eating, balloon popping, or a relay race that only involves passing an orange and giving a piggy-back ride for two feet. Seriously, why was ANYONE training for this? Well, to be fair, Naomi didn’t train as much as she strategized. She thought that Austin held the secret to beating the Kappas, since one time his frat beat them…granted, he admitted his frat just stopped smoking weed for that week. But Austin convinced Naomi he could find Holly’s weakness, and he did in fact know a weakness. But little did Naomi know that Austin seducing her and them getting it on in the kitchen was only fuel to make Holly jealous, since apparently they used to date. This was news to Naomi, who now also felt betrayed because she was starting to have real feelings for the cowboy. Follow all that? Because it is about to get more confusing! At the games, Holly unleashed her final weapon upon Naomi by surprising her with an appearance by everyone’s favorite nerd: Max! Naomi was shocked, but the two quickly reconciled and all was right with the world…for two seconds until Naomi was again turned on by Austin. Max sees the good in Naomi; Austin sees the bad in her…which side of Naomi will ultimately prevail? My money is on the bad!
  • 2 Broke Siblings: So, so, so many things are ridiculous about the pathways Annie and Dixon are heading down. Honestly, not much new stuff to report on for the siblings—Annie still needs money for school and Dixon still needs money [and talent] to make it in the music biz. And the two are still making poor choices on how to do that—Annie is now gung-ho ready to be a paid escort and Dixon is hooked on ADHD pills for the “intense focus” it gives him to make crappy music. But let’s talk for a moment about their heart-to-heart convo held at Dixon’s insanely expensive beach pad about just how broke they are and how they can’t very well call their parents who are having their own money problems—I guess money problems so severe that Debbie just has to live in Paris with her ex-teacher boyfriend who also has a child to support. Do the writers actually read what they write? Does it make sense to them in the writers’ room? Or do they purposely craft their scripts to help me write my blog posts every week? OK, rant over for now. All that really happened was that Annie got booted from her sorority, which was no biggie because she still has her new friend and that girl’s escort service. And Dixon first hit up the stoner frat (ha! wrong choice buddy!) and then appropriately the math team to score more of his “homework helpers” (or in Dixon’s case let’s call them the “music machine” pills). By the end of the episode I thought he was about to start singing “I’m so excited…I’m so, so scared!”
  • Surfs Up! Shirts Off! I can’t stand what they have done to Navid and Silver this season. They took the two most ambitious characters (at least in terms of academic drive) and neither actually ended up in college (I still don’t know why—did the show ever explain that?). Instead they just hang around all day “running” Shirazi Studios and living in nonexistent Kelly’s guest house with Navid’s now nonexistent sister, whom he worked so hard to protect. This show suffers from an invasion of the body snatchers. Anyway, because Navid now has dirty auto theft money on his hands and Silver has literally nothing to do, he funds a project for her and Liam. Yes, Silver attempts to direct Liam in a commercial for his bar. Clearly she is an idiot because she should have known to just take his shirt off at the get-go rather than have him try to act. Liam’s abs are a success and apparently that is all it took to get peeps to his bar—that or the fact that here is a bar on the beach where underage kids are serving alcohol to other underage kids.
  • See Jane Run. I am going to make this one quick since all I really want to say is, “we should care because…?” Ade is hit on by a creepy yet cute dude on the beach during an incredibly awkward meeting. She later sees him spying on her at the bar. Liam gets all super protective of her because lately he is not feeling like much of a macho man in providing for Jane. Turns out creepy-cute stalker guy is Jim—Jane’s supposedly dead husband. And I still don’t care about this storyline at all. Why should we be invested in this love triangle when we never even saw it established?
  • Ivy was there, again. Poor Ivy—not only is her husband Raj stricken with cancer, but she has barely had a line of dialog this entire season. Tonight she finally had an inkling of what could become an actual story arc! She and Raj argued about his health and wondered if there was hope for him to get better. But, she also met a photographer on the beach who seems interested in her. I am going to refer to him as Navid-Lite because they kind of look like each other, but we’ll see how this plays out.

What do you think of this season of 90210 so far? Should Naomi pick the nerd or the cowboy? And can Navid give some of his extra money to me for writing this blog?

90210 recapping: greek tragedy

Grab your ADHD pills, kids, because it is going to be a late night of Greek Mixers, paid escorts, stolen cars and Alaskan adventures. All of our story lines from last week—plus Ivy this time—moved as quickly as Dixon’s impending rage storm. Let’s jump right in to the “Greece Mix”…

  • Sisterhood of the Traveling Toga: Naomi is still out for revenge against Holly and the Kappas for being bi-otches, and apparently for issuing the lamest “insults” possible: “Guess we’ll see you at the Greek Mixer tomorrow…oh never mind, that is just for Greeks!” Wow Holly, hope you didn’t hurt too many brain cells thinking of that zinger. Naomi’s original plan was to have initiated sister Annie infiltrate, but it seems Annie will be a bit too preoccupied with other matters soon (more on that later). Even better is Naomi’s new plan, which I highly enjoyed. It may have been a rip-off of The House Bunny, but I really liked Naomi joining a “frumpy” unpopular sorority just to gain access to the Greek system and giving them her sage advice to be cool. Her nuggets of beauty wisdom were hysterical and sharp—“Hang it in another gallery” (regarding one girl’s tattoos being called art) and “It’s better to look good than to feel good.” When Naomi dresses the girls up in extravagant togas for the Greek Mixer and then learns she was duped into thinking this was a costume party (apparently now we are using Legally Blonde’s story line) she still comes through big time for the girls by making a grand entrance. The girls may be pissed that Naomi was using them, but they end up having a great night. And now they all have a great enemy: Holly. Yes, Naomi has truly bonded with her new sisters, and this is shaping up to be a fun plot development. Plus, I hope these girls stick around for a while!
  • Paying her dues: Annie must pay her dues figuratively and literally in this episode. Since she is still cash-strapped (I guess the Marla money situation is in limbo off-screen) Annie must find a way to pay her new sorority dues and get over Liam, all at like the same time…omg. OK, first of all, since Naomi is the one who wanted Annie to stay in the sorority in the first place, why on earth wouldn’t Naomi simply give Annie the money she needs? But, then again, we wouldn’t be treated to this ah-maz-ing development of Annie not knowing she is on a paid escort date with sorority sister Brie. Annie even kisses the guy (to make Liam jealous) but that only earns her some more bucks! Yes, Annie has found her new calling…literally as a call girl. And looks like she is headed down a dark path given how upset she is over Liam ending things. Really Annie? Really? You seemed plenty over him last episode when you were all about cute coffee boy who later turned out to be Marla’s family. But that was before…
  • Liam’s Offshore drilling project: I am pretty sure I saw a sign on the bar Liam bought that said “Offshore – coming soon!” So, I guess we can assume Liam has re-named Salty’s and that we now have the official Peach Pit After Dark 2.0 live music/club scene for these crazy college kids of the new era. The “drilling” refers to Liam banging his Alaskan girlfriend Jane. What is up with this girl? And what is up with Ade wearing a huge winter parka indoors while everyone else rocks tank tops? Jane and Liam already bore me to tears and, once again, I find myself completely un-invested in a Liam relationship because this show is clearly against taking the time to establish them. Instead I have to simply listen to Liam and Jane explain to us in choppy dialog that her husband is dead, Liam feels guilty, and now she is pregnant from her dead husband. And she is only 20 years old. And Liam—who proposed to Annie a mere two weeks ago—is fully ready to commit to Jane. Whatever. We all know your sole purpose on this show now is to simply run your bar where underage students can drink and drama can go down.
  • The Juice is Loose: Dixon has been feeling “crazy focused” on his music lately. Soon, he will just be crazy thanks to abusing prescription meds. His career suffers a major setback, though, when DJ Juice doesn’t show up to hear Dixon play at Liam’s grand opening party (and I am only assuming you spell this guy’s name like the kind of juice you drink). The reason why the Juice doesn’t show? He is pissed that Navid cancelled his recording session at Shirazi Porn Studios. And why did Navid cancel? Well, Navid wanted to cater to Bieber’s people instead and make a lot of money to pay back his sketchy uncle so that he won’t have to owe him anything. Did anyone else laugh when the uncle told Navid that he is now a “family man” and has to support his family? Again, I do not understand why we have Navid and Silver acting like a 45-year old married couple with a teenage daughter. And, I still don’t get why the only two West Bev Over-Achiever Awards students (Navid and Silver) did not enroll at CU. Navid is learning what it means to be a family man in the Shirazi family, though, because he must keep his uncle’s auto theft ring a secret or risk facing his own jail time. Wah wah!
  • Life or death drama: Ivy was in tonight’s episode.  She mainly pops up to get really pissed at her friends or random party strangers when they moan about life’s cruelties. Obviously Ivy and Raj have real life or death problems on their hands. I never thought I would say this, but I think we actually need more Ivy to add a dose of reality to this show.

What did you think of tonight’s Greek Tragedy? Who else is excited for the continuation of Naomi’s “Big Fat Greek Sorority”? And, I think it is safe to say that Annie and Dixon’s forthcoming downward spirals are the reason why the original show kept Jim and Cindy Walsh on through sophomore year of college.
