And now it's time for the Most Awesome Thing I Saw on TV Last Week. The most awesome thing I saw on TV last week has already been written about by Sars, except where she thinks it was bad and yet she couldn't stop watching, I think it was awesome. Yes, I'm talking about the early seasons of 90210. I recently saw what is, to me, the single most awesome scene of the entire series: the one where Dylan and Kelly told Brenda that not only were they together, but they had hooked up over the summer while Brenda was in Paris. And then Brenda's response was to just walk away. Which then led to the ridiculous (and yet awesome) episode where Brenda had a daydream in which she tried to kill Dylan and Kelly with an ax, and one where she cut all of Kelly's hair off. Which then led to Dylan's dad being "killed" by a car bomb, which then led to Dylan finding out that his dad was really a government informant, which then led to Dylan living with the Walshes for a while, which then led to Kelly deciding she needed to start taking diet pills. All of which led to me wondering what the hell kind of drugs the writers were doing. And I'm not even getting into David's shitty recording contract or Brandon's laughable gambling addiction or Donna's complete lack of storyline or the fact that Andrea is clearly about fifteen years older than anyone else on the show including Dylan "Receding Hairline" McKay and Steve "Could My Pants Be Any Tighter?" Sanders and Brenda "Check Out My Crow's Feet" Walsh. All of which is to say, every Saturday and Sunday you will find me on the couch watching a few hours of 90210 reruns, at least until Brenda leaves the show, because then it all goes downhill.
