What I'm Watching: 90210

90210: Season 1, Episode 7 "Hollywood Forever" (F)

I feel like this kind of show always has a themed episode like this where all the characters get together for a big event. I do feel like I'm repeating myself because, well, so is this show. Dixon appears not to have been reprimanded at all for his punching that guy in the face last episode, but he so easily gets himself into trouble straightaway for falling asleep past his curfew while watching horror movies with Silver. I'm dismayed by Silver's sudden character change - she wouldn't have a big blowout birthday bash because she doesn't care what anyone else thinks, and certainly wouldn't made a big deal about a birthday of all things. I think it's a ridiculous, stupid notion to have an undercover cop trying to make a drug bust, and worst still to have eternal high school girl Jessica Lucas (of "life as we know it" fame, though she broke out of that briefly by playing a twentysomething in "Cloverfield") playing her. This show is aimless and awful.
