90210 Recap and Videos: Episode 19, "Okaeri, Donna!"

90210 Rundown: Episode 19, "Okaeri, Donna!"

Well, 90210 continues to click along and improve ever so slightly. It's not as laughably bad these days, but it's also not the best thing ever.

On this week's episode, the kids are let loose on Spring break. Dixon and Annie take a road trip together, Ethan and Naomi help Mr. Matthews build houses for Habitat for Humanity, and Silver is stuck at home under the watchful eye of Kelly. Oh, and Donna's back! I missed Navid and Adrianna and think the new guy, Liam, is super annoying.

Sometimes words alone aren't enough to convey this show's funniest/weirdest/most dramatic scenes, so I've grabbed some of my favorite clips from this episode. To watch and discuss, just


Liam is supposed to be the new "bad boy" on the show, but he comes off as a jerk at best (and not in the good, Chuck Bass way) and a know-it-all at worst. It's a shame — I thought his casting had so much potential! So I'm focusing this week's videos on his various interactions with Naomi and Ethan, because they're so funny/cringe-worthy.

Check out this hilarious scene, in which he tells this kid what's what about Peyote (Liam learned about "tripping" from Hunter S. Thompson — uh huh):

Naomi cracked me up this episode, but her attraction to being shoved around and sexually manipulated by Liam is way icky:

And finally, here's Liam and Ethan tripping. It's so bad, it's awesome:

What did you think of this episode?

It's not AS bad...but it's still bad! Naomi looked so cute in her camping clothes though and her little ponytail! They need to keep her hair straight all the time. Annalynn looks a little too thin though...I mean she doesn't have any boobs anymore! Liam was super annoying expecially how he kept grabbing Naomi and being a general douche bag. No way would I have wood sex with that guy if he was treating me like crap and then being so forceful. Annie and Dixon's scenes were nothing like how real (adopted or otherwise) brother and sisters interact. It was bascially a cheesy Dr. Pepper commerical. Diablo Cody sucked big time and I'm sure she really goes and visits her designers friend's little sisters all the time... I thought Donna was cute and bubbly, but I'm PISSED that they broke her and David up! Why can't they just leave some things sacred, they already broke up Kelly and Dylan with no hope of reconciliation seeing as Luke Perry refuses to guest star.

That is because they left the baby with the crazy bipolar highschooler. haha

sarah I am so with you! I was loving it last night watching Donna and Kelly together again. Then they ruined it at the end when she says she isn't with David anymore! They have to work it out they are Donna and David them getting together is how the orginal 90210 ended- they can't screw that perfect ending up now! Did anyone else notice how she had a baby with her when she first arrived and kid disappeared the rest of the time? I didn't see a nanny near by they just were out doing their thing no baby in tow. I like Naomi- she plays that bitch part so well- such a vixen I love it! Her new man is a step up too -HAWT!

Anyone else think that Diablo Cody was straight awful in her scenes? She was honestly at least as bad as Annie, maybe worse. And that "tripping" scene was so ridiculous. I snorted when the coyote showed up. I mean, really?

I hate that they have made everyone of the old cast into either losers or just plain unhappy. Can't anyone actually stay happy! Donna and David are separated, with a BABY. Jackie's back to boozing and Kelly and Dylan hardly even talk. Brenda's still weird and strangely angry for some reason. Happy Endings people! I see the show improving, slowly but slowly.

am i the only one who notices that the "background" music is extremely loud even through the people talking? even my roommate who never watched the show said "maybe because there's really nothing important going on they're just covering up the bad acting" ...touche? haha. i miss the old guy that naomi was into. this guy just reminds me too much of buffy's love interest that turned out to be a private mutant agent or whatever in the later seasons of buffy the vampire slayer.

Maybe since the new writer(or whatever she is) doesnt want to do any more 'stunt' casting and focus on the younger kids they will have Donna go back to Japan to be with David

I miss more commentary on these posts rather than the video clips...we've already seen the cheesy awful acting! They probably just want to keep Donna around for a while and would be hard to explain how she could just up and leave her husband in Japan. I too would love to see David make an appearance though.

Me too SaRaH! I hope they fix that storyline asap or they will have a lot of disgruntled fans who were happy to see David and Donna get married at the end of the old 90210.

I only watch the show for the Kelly Taylor parts...and now the Donna Martin ones, but I am sooooo mad that they ruined the picture in my head that Donna & David lived happily ever after!

Yeah, I want BAG to come back and be the DJ at the school's prom :ROTFL:

i can't really agree that it's getting any better. it's still REALLY painful to watch. the kids just can't seem to act - liam and ethan's new found friendship and fake tripping was just over kill....and kelly being as over protective as she is was just horrible. i liked that donna was back, but um...that was quite obvious that she and david were on the rocks, yet that doesn't make sense to me knowing how long they took to get married. they should be solid - no? maybe they are trying to leave the door open for BAG to make an appearance and come back to LA to get donna back.

I loved this show last night. I am so happy Donna is back but what is up with the crazy expensive car she was driving around?? Also, why is Kelly being such a bitch to silver? I understand being protective, but Kelly is not that much of a tighass. Right? I loved how much screen time Kelly and Donna got. I hope David comes back to BH and begs Donna to reconcile :)
