MONDO EXTRAS

The Beverly Hills 90210: The Reunion

Next, we learn about Shannen's most personally embarrassing moment. Surprisingly, it is not when she got fired, but rather when she had to wear an unflattering orange puffy wig for that episode where Kelly tried to dye Brenda's hair blonde. Apparently, it was hard for her to flirt with Dylan while wearing that ugly wig. Poor Shannen. That IS humiliating. How have you not yet taken your own life?

The next, and almost final, segment is called "Most Romantic." Brandon thinks the most romantic episode was "the shot heard round the world," when Brenda lost her virginity to Dylan at the Spring Dance, and I must agree with Old Crazy Priestley in this instance. Steven then mentions the scene where Jim Walsh Finds Out That Brenda Had Sex Because They Found Her EPT, and yes, that was a defining moment for us all, Steve. Brenda says she, "as a person," was very embarrassed filming that scene, since she never had The Big Sex Talk with her own parents. "It was humiliating," she says. It seems that Shannen Doherty is very easily embarrassed, especially for someone who's been engaged four times. Dylan thinks that the entire romantic arc of Donna and David was the most romantic relationship in the show, and this cues up a vaguely amusing montage of Donna cock-blocking poor David. The montage ends with a clip from the Donna Finally Gives Up The Ghost episode, which is totally hilarious because Brian Austin Green looks totally unenthusiastic and basically completely grossed out by the idea of having to bang La Spelling.

After the ads, we revisit the time Brenda transformed herself into Laverne in order to force herself to work at the Peach Pit. This serves mainly to introduce the appearance of Carol Potter, Joe E. Tata, and James Eckhouse. The only thing you really need to take away from this is that Jim Walsh is bald as a boiled egg. Everyone hugs, and I notice that Joe E. Tata is really fucking short. Andrea yammers something about being nervous to be in the Walshes' living room again, or some shit that I totally didn't catch because I don't care about her.

Somehow, this leads to talking about Brandon's wacky car racing accident. "That wasn't hard for me," Brandon cracks. We then all reflect on how sad it was, that time Brandon almost died. Andrea gets sort of emotional again and starts sniffling about how she wishes Tori and BAG were there, and they're like a family and yadda yadda schmadda. Dylan reflects that "TV shows come and go." Mostly go, in his career. "We've all been on them. We'll be on other ones," he finishes. Well, good luck with that, Dylan. Anyway, they all agree that they're still secretly close and shit, and they'll always love each other, or something. "I Will Remember You" plays again, and everyone gets into this love fest, which is total bullshit because no one wants to see a love fest! We want to see cat fights and snippy fights. But no. Instead, Kelly yaps something about how they're "family" and "connected," and there's a montage of hugging, of all things. Steve reflects that his experience with 90210 "continues to this day to be rewarding," and everyone in the living room with me says, in unison, "because of the residuals." We close on more hugging and sniffling, and you guys? That was it.
