90210 Recap: Season Two, Episode Seven, "Hollywood Forever"

90210 Rundown: Episode Seven, "Hollywood Forever"

This week's 90210 feels like two different shows happening in the same hour. On the one hand, there is wholesome, run-of-the-mill high school stuff like the tried and true "take care of a fake baby and pretend to be married to someone to learn about life" lesson, along with kissy boyfriend/girlfriend moments. On the other hand, there are narcotics divisions and overdoses and snorting and undercover cops infiltrating West Beverly High School!

Yesterday I made some proposals on how to improve the show, and at least one of them — releasing Naomi from her family drama and getting her back to intermingling with the kids —actually happens in this episode, so that's a good sign. Also grandma was back and said some awesome stuff, and everyone else did a decent job distracting me from the fact that Brenda and Kelly are gone. So let's chat about it —

.

  • I've been wondering what the heck Ryan teaches. This episode he mentions Orwell and "Big Brother" several times, so he's probably an English teacher, or maybe social studies.
  • Ryan also spars (flirts?) with a new transfer student from Las Vegas named Kim (played by Jessica Lucas, who recently starred in Cloverfield). He promptly throws her into detention and in my opinion is kind of mean to her. Do you think he's an inappropriate teacher?
  • Silver is inviting everyone to her half-birthday party at a cemetery and even extends an invite to Ryan. Granted, I've been out of high school for a while now, but teachers were not ever invited to parties and get-togethers with my friends. But maybe that's just me?
  • Yay for grandma Tabitha being back! She's up to all sorts of random stuff like flashing the gardener (she argues she was simply swimming naked because she "likes the feel of water when it glides off my ass").
  • I loved when Dixon sneaks into the house past curfew and bumps into Tabitha and says, "Grandma, you don’t see me, you just forgot to take your blue pill."
  • Naomi is back to mingling with the other teens, but this time she's mostly focused on her drugged-up best friend Adrianna, who's keeping a lipstick case of cocaine in her backpack. We learn that Naomi dabbled in coke back when she was part of the "C & C Club," aka the cocaine and champagne club. Yeah.
  • Annie doesn't get the part in the movie because Adrianna's audition is better — thanks to snorting coke in the bathroom. I find it hard to believe that anyone would want to hire a teen who's that washed-out, red-eyed, and sweaty.
  • Meanwhile, Harry and Naomi's mom have decided they want to find their long-lost son. And Debbie's cool with this, until of course Naomi's mom makes a move on Harry. Then Debbie gets sad and misses Kansas. I would have been much angrier if someone kissed my husband.
  • Speaking of Debbie, "Nobody puts baby in the corner"? Really? Even her kids were embarrassed at how flat that fell.
  • Once again Annie and Ethan have this weird flirtation going on where she really likes him but is afraid he's still hung up on Naomi. But he tries to kiss in her the end anyway, which is good. Hopefully Naomi hears about it and goes on a rampage. That is if she doesn't go to jail.
  • Navid is cute this episode and handles his same-sex partnership very well, I thought.

I think we can all agree it was not a smart move for Naomi to take the fall for Adrianna's drugs during the random school raid orchestrated by Harry. How'd you like that scene with Naomi running to the toilet to flush the drugs? The editing was weird to me. By the way — where did Harry's sudden authoritarian urge to crack down on drugs come from? Also, does Ryan strike you as totally inappropriate? Is he going to fall for the undercover cop before or after he knows she's of age? She's laying the flirting on pretty thick herself, which is confusing. And ew! Needle in the chest! Did Adrianna's dramatic overdose scene do anything for you? Or was it just kind of cheesy?

well - i finally caught up on the episode since i was on vacation and wow - um...didn't expect some of that - but totally pegged some of it to happen. i think that it's funny how they are using navid - since he's one of our favorites, but nice of them to really bring up the point that silver is painting one of kelly's walls..like that will go over well.

ALso, I love that ANnie's part has gotten so much smaller. YAY for that. We need to kill that character off.

Pink, then why are you posting here? I kinda liked this episode a LOT more then the others. I feel like the cast is melding into their parts a lot more. I still want more drama, but I guess easing into it is ok. GG and the original BH 90210 are SUCH different shows, STOP comparing them people. Sheesh! THat said, 90210 v2 needs to embrace the fact that it is not trying to be GG version 2 and embrace its BH 90210 self. DOes that make sense? One of the best parts about the original 90210 is that it was cheesy, drama, and silliness all at the same time. It should go to that more.

I would never waste my time with this show...I didn't with the last one either. This type of show should have NEVER been placed back on television for so many reason.

I was entertained by the sheer mindlessness of it. That's all I really want, so thumbs up from me!

Sorry, I have so much more to add!<b>NatashaAlexis</b><i>"Okay maybe I'm just a little twisted, but I thought the best part of the show last night was the last line spoken by Naomi to Aundrea. "Your dead to me!" and it cuts to Aundrea lying on the pavement looking dead. That made me laugh, great ending!"</i>I liked that part too! It was so dramatic.<i>"The way Naomi handled the coke was just stupid, she shouldn't have taken it at all. Instead put it back in the purse and the two of them could have casually walked outside. Don't feel sorry for her at all."</i>They couldn't walk outside, the cops were blocking the doors and the dogs would've sniffed out the drugs from her purse.<i>"Audrey's mom telling her that they almost lost the house, and only had $3 left in the bank."</i>I believe it was $300 not $3.

<i>"They are starting to put more clothes on Silver which makes this game less fun. I'm pretty sure the costume designers have clued into the fact she looks skeletal on camera and are trying to put her in flowy tops to prevent any more pre-teens from vomming up their dinner after they watch the show."</i>emms - I noticed that as well, they seemed to put more layers on Silver. However, you could still see her bare arms and they looked very very skinny, Skinnier than Angelina Jolie's arms.<i>"Also, if you are an undercover cop, you probably shouldn't be that noticeable."</i> - AllyaceAllyace, I was thinking that too. If you're undercover, wouldn't you try to blend in? Maybe she's trying to stir up trouble on purpose so when the undercover operation is done and she has to leave, it will look like she got kicked out.

run-of-the-mill high school stuff like the tried and true "take care of a fake baby and pretend to be married to someone to learn about life" lesson. It's funny that they always have this lesson on every teen show I have ever watched. We never did that at my school, but then again it was a private Christian high school. We might have taken care of an egg though, I don't remember :? It's kinda sad that I don't remember, since high school wasn't that long ago for me... On the other hand, there are narcotics divisions and overdoses and snorting and undercover cops infiltrating West Beverly High School! I like the drama! It did seem randomly placed in this episode though. Yesterday I made some proposals on how to improve the show, and at least one of them — releasing Naomi from her family drama and getting her back to intermingling with the kids Yeah, I agree with you Buzz - she needs to mingle with the kids more and she did do it more in this episode, but I still think the parents were there too often for my liking. Also grandma was back and said some awesome stuff, and everyone else did a decent job distracting me from the fact that Brenda and Kelly are gone. I like the Grandma, but I think that now they are just trying to make her stay shocking things for the sake of being shocking. This bit is kinda getting tired. I didn't even notice Brenda and Kelly were gone. I've been wondering what the heck Ryan teaches. This episode he mentions Orwell and "Big Brother" several times, so he's probably an English teacher, or maybe social studies. Yeah I think they mentioned it in the pilot, where Naomi has to turn in a paper for that class. Ryan also spars (flirts?) with a new transfer student from Las Vegas named Kim. He promptly throws her into detention and in my opinion is kind of mean to her. Do you think he's an inappropriate teacher? I thought they were trying to make a student-teacher fling with that girl...I think it's bound to happen eventually. Thankfully that girl is an undercover officer. I didn't think he was that mean to her...I think he was trying to be authoritative and not look like a wimp, since she was mouthing off to him a lot. Granted, I've been out of high school for a while now, but teachers were not ever invited to parties and get-togethers with my friends. But maybe that's just me? I actually hung out with some teachers outside of school in elementary & middle school, but definitely not high school. Annie doesn't get the part in the movie because Adrianna's audition is better — thanks to snorting coke in the bathroom. Annie's audition was terrible. Meanwhile, Harry and Naomi's mom have decided they want to find their long-lost son. And Debbie's cool with this, until of course Naomi's mom makes a move on Harry. Then Debbie gets sad and misses Kansas. I would have been much angrier if someone kissed my husband. Speaking of Debbie, "Nobody puts baby in the corner"? Really? Even her kids were embarrassed at how flat that fell. I think Debbie was mad - that's why she kept repeating "she kissed you?" At least he didn't reciprocate, she can't control what the other woman does. And I think her cheesy joke is supposed to show how parents try to be hip and cool but it doesn't always work. Poor Lori Loughlin, she got cheesy lines on Full House and now on 90210. Navid is cute this episode and handles his same-sex partnership very well, I thought. That part was hilarious when the other guy was chosen to be Navid's partner! I think we can all agree it was not a smart move for Naomi to take the fall for Adrianna's drugs during the random school raid orchestrated by Harry. How'd you like that scene with Naomi running to the toilet to flush the drugs? The editing was weird to me. I agree Buzz, that was weird. Naomi was dumb to think that she could just slip past. She should've let Adrianna take responsibility, because then she still continued to use drugs and collapsed.

Huh. Well, good to know there aren't all these writers who are making the fake baby training up! I definitely learned something today...*The More You Know* (ah, miss those NBC educational promos of my youth...)

Silver invited Ryan because he dated Kelly and he's a lot younger than the average teacher. I like the whole undercover cop/ student angle. Ryan needs a break after the roller coaster ride which was Kelly Taylor and he and Jessica Lucas have great chemistry. Naomi was so stupid to actually think Adrianna was going to show up to the attorney's office and get her off the hook.

Yes I had a sugar baby too...however my older sister had an egg baby that was much more challenging. I would love it if the teacher is actually a drug dealer. The show is terrible!

My sister had to carry around a 5 lb bag of sugar baby in middle school. I think it was based on some book they were reading.

My high school actually did the fake baby thing! It was in a child development class, which you had to take if you wanted to work at the daycare at school (yeah, my school ran a daycare. Long story). Anyway, I never took it, but there was always a week when I couldn't go out with most of my friends because they were all with their "babies."
Mykie7 Mykie7 7 years
Yes, I did. We had the Mock Wedding, had to set up a budget, run a a house and have a baby. It was in a class called "Family Life Education". Of course, that was in the 80's. LOL

How long did we all see Ade's OD coming? Yet, I can't really stop watching...this show just gets me all revved up for Greek at 9pm (which is far superior, and I would LOVE to see recaps on it here, Buzz!)By the way, has anyone actually ever done the fake-baby assignment in class? I feel like it's one of those weird tv/movie high school cliches that no one has ever actually experienced in real life.
