90210 episode 3 Review
EPISODE DESCRIPTION: Annie (Shenae Grimes) and Dixon’s (Tristan Wilds) Friday night plans come to a screeching halt when they learn that Harry (Rob Estes) and Debbie (Lori Loughlin) have planned a family bowling night. When Ethan (Dustin Milligan), Navid (Michael Steger) and Silver (Jessica Stroup) show up at the bowling alley, Harry and Debbie realize they have lost control of their family outing but encourage their kids to spend time with their friends. Ty (guest star Adam Gregory) shows up at the bowling alley, causing Annie to choose between spending time with him or Ethan. Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord) deals with a disappointing evening with her father and destroys a gift from him in a violent rage. Dixon discovers Silver asleep in her car, prompting Kelly (guest star Jennie Garth) to confront their mother Jackie (guest star Ann Gillespie, “Beverly Hills, 90210”) about the repercussions of her alcoholic behavior. Jessica Walter also stars.
Mark Piznarski directed the episode written by Jill Gordon.
I like this show…I can admit it. It’s actually interesting because these kids aren’t all total douche bags who switch personalities every episode(I’m looking at you GOSSIP GIRL). The characters just work in this show. I love everybody, but I was glad that we finally get into SILVER’s story. SILVER is by far my favorite female character in the show, she’s the kind of girl that nerds like me wish where more prevelant in the world…lol. The story between ETHAN and ANNIE is interesting but I can see it getting annoying if they keep playing it, but I do like the chemistry between both the actors. Solid episode that shows that the “bitchy” character, NAOMI, has some issues and she isn’t a one note character.
PROS: I just am drawn to the screen when this show is on, the actors on this show are so talented that I think they won’t get the respect for they deserve. Just a much better show than Gossip Girl and the other american teenage shows.
CONS: With the show just getting into it’s stride I don’t have too many problems with the show…as of right now
