  1. Is Janet Catholic? I'm Catholic and we most churches have very strict protocols regarding godparents. Usually they have to have taken a bunch of classes (after the baby is born) and at least one needs to be a practicing Catholic. Pink Moment... seriously? Stop saying it.
  2. I am looking at it through today's "MeToo" lens but David seems to freaking entitled. Just because Gina has kissed you a few times doesn't mean she is required to sleep with you! This sort of reminds me of early Summer of Deception where Dylan basically browbeats Kelly because she decides to draw the line on their cheating by not sleeping with him. And just like Val, I want to tell Gina to find new friends. Get a job at Contempo Casuals, give private ice skating lessons, work at Barnes & Noble - save the money while mooching off of Dylan and start hanging out with people who aren't total jerks.
  3. I thinks she also suggested to Brandon that they hook up one Thanksgiving when she was with Collin and he was with Susan.
  4. Forgot about Valerie. I guess we did have the cross over of "non Hillster" with Collin. I did see Brenda (Shannen) having amazing chemistry with David (BAG), thinking especially of when they danced together.
  5. Remembering that topic in high school health about how when you've had sex, you're sleeping with all the people that person's partners has slept with... Dylan- Brenda, Kelly, Valerie, Gina Brandon- Kelly Kelly- Steve, Dylan, Brandon Steve- Kelly, Clare David- Clare, Valerie, Donna, Gina I guess technically Dylan and David have slept with each other twice. And I'm impressed that Brenda is the only one who didn't date the gang.
  6. So many things in this episode drove me bonkers, mostly with the ladies. 1. Gina. When David said he'd "cleared it with Dylan" to ask Gina out, I felt like Gina should have been mad. Is she an inanimate object who doesn't get a say in who she dates? I wish she'd turned down David just based on that (and the fact that he's been having so much random sex it's too much) 2. Donna. She survived two attempted rapes- wouldn't she be more attune to Kelly's concerns? Also, who makes plans to have "casual sex"? Are she and Noah broken up? I get that she's discovering her sexuality but she's been cheated on numerous times by boyfriends. Why would she cheat now?
  7. I only remember the B plot of this episode- the stupid hypnotist. I felt so awful for Gina and Matt... knowing that Kelly would pick Dylan. I do give points to the show for keeping up with the idea that Dylan and Kelly have great sexual chemistry. I wish someone would spill all the dirt on Kelly to Gina- then she wouldn't have to feel so inferior. Kelly gives Gina shit for not being a star Olympian... what has Kelly done? Drug addict, barely graduated, worked at the clinic-clinic, now folds t-shirts.
  8. Or maybe Rush got in the mix too? My FIL is a geneticist, I need to ask him if this is even possible to have two sisters look completely different if they have the same father and mothers who are sisters.
  9. In Gossip Girl, I think they were obvious about the connections the kids got based on their parents/parents' wealth. It's like we are supposed to forget that no one has any business training at all and yet they all "run" businesses. I WISH I could have seen the reaction of any loan officer's face to these stupid kids.
  10. Ugh! I know there is no reality but I just cannot understand Kelly...she is bored so she HIRES someone vs. maybe trying to be a publicist herself (spoiler). Why would she manage the business side as she has zero business skills. It would make more sense to have had Val. How did they pay for this store? Whose parents coughed up the money? I know we're supposed to think these girls are working but it is so entitled that Donna and Kelly run a store when neither has retail experience. Literally, Kelly would be folding tshirts at the Gap given her track record (psychology dress in the late 90's, drug addict, no work experience except modeling).

    The only thing I was nearly as disappointed in was the ending of Lost. I was trying to explain to my 13 year old that way back then, we actually watched a show on dvr (another side conversation) and didn't binge and if the show made you wait a year that was it, and there was lots of talk about it. The podcast is actually called Again With This, and it's listed on the forums under podcast. They rewatch every episode, make fun of it, and then have a fun little challenge at the end. It's hilarious. Even when the show itself is dying (like in the final seasons), the podcast is great. But I only listen by myself.

    I still feel like I need to apologize... even though it's not like everything that my husband watches is "Masterpiece Theatre" (that's a running joke from my dad). My "me time" only shows include(d) Pretty Little Liars, Gossip Girl, Carrie Diaries, The Bold Type, and Younger. I was watching 13 Reasons Why but quit after episode 4. My husband joked that at least with The Bold Type and Younger, the characters weren't in high school anymore. I don't even let anyone know I listen to the Beverly Hills 90210 podcast. The only "teen" show I feel ok with saying I watched was Veronica Mars. Typing this makes me realize I need to get over it.

    S05.E12: Lizability

    This is one of the few shows I watch as just "me time" since I live in a house full of men/boys. I agree on the Liza/Charles vibe. I think that in the end, they are in similar life stages, have kids, understand the same pop references... all the kinds of things that makes a better relationship. Josh is sexy but the conflict of him wanting a baby is just the tip of the iceberg. I do wonder how the Liza/Charles relationship will change when she gets to more "take charge" at work vs just an ingénue. Can she just state her age now? If I were Diana I'd be going someplace else... this is total bullshit.
  14. or "Maria" since she's from the continent of South America, right? Or I guess she could be another "Carla", as I think that was the name of the Latina girl Brandon fell for who was in the witness protection program.
  15. Do you think that Felice was originally named something else, like maybe Francesca (Frankie and Bobbi) and then she changed her name? I thought she didn't get knocked up with Donna but rather miscarried after they got married. My fan fiction is that she was an ambitious gal in college and met/fell in love with this struggling med student or maybe he was just an undergrad and she helped him through school? Remember when Felice was having an affair? Wonder why she didn't bring up Dr. Martin's infidelity during that time? (since I'm assuming this was all carefully mapped out in the 90210 playbook).
