The Beverly Hills 90210: The Reunion

Dylan then awkwardly tells this story about how the girls had a fight over who got to wear a red dress at a certain photo shoot, but he tells the story really poorly. I can barely follow it. And from what I understand, that fight was what led to Shannen Doherty and Jennie Garth's falling out, so I wish he were a little more articulate, but that is not to be. Inside, Brenda just looks like she wishes he would shut up, and then he just trails off. Steve laughs really weakly, and Dylan says he wishes Steve had worn the dress, and we cut to a scene of Steve in a dress, which I think is from the episodes where he was rushing KEG house, but I don't entirely remember, and yes, I am appalled that I don't recall.

After the ads, we open with a scene of Nat and Brandon at the Peach Pit, in which Brandon is all telling Nat how responsible he is and shit. When we get back to Reflection Soundstage, Jason Priestley goes, "Brandon was, in a lot of ways, the social conscience of America." Um, excuse me? With the sleeping around and the drunk driving and the gambling addiction and the falling in love with that ice skater and the bombastic self-righteous pontificating? Whatever, Jason. I think that accident knocked a screw loose. "And, uh, he was a real straight arrow," Brandon continues, leading into a clip of him telling Dylan that getting wasted and fooling around with firearms is, contrary to popular belief, Not That Cool. "For me, being in my twenties and growing up in Hollywood, it was good to have a friend -- and I consider Brandon a friend -- who was such a straight arrow," Brandon continues. Okay, several things: first of all, why are his pants so tight here? Second, "I CONSIDER BRANDON A FRIEND"? Dude, for one thing, he's not, you know, real. For another, he's you. "He kept me out of trouble a lot of times, which was a good thing," Brandon finishes. I'd make a joke about how maybe he ought to let Brandon drive more often, but we all remember the time he crashed Mondale and got thrown into jail, so that's not really very good advice, is it? "I think Brandon was a good influence on Jason in a lot of ways because he was a very thoughtful, very contentious guy and I think having him be a part of my life was good for me." Wow. Holy multiple personalities, Batman. Leave the third-person bit for Inside the Actor's Studio, okay? I mean, theoretically, obviously, because it's not like Jason Priestley is ever going to end up on Inside the Actor's Studio.
