I remember, back in '08, when 90210 was some drama show that play on Thursday nights on M-Net just before Desperate Housewives (my obsession with a capital obsesh) and was all over every Seventeen magazine and school homework diary but I didn't care much for what another teen drama could offer - I had Gossip Girl since '07, 'mkay?
But then I was somehow convinced to watch it (note: 2008 me was such a push over) and it was the best decision I could have ever made. And for the next five years that it would play on M-Net, Vuzu and M-Net Series I fell head over heels, mind over matter, completely and utterly, mind-blowling, slightly annoyingly in the love.
And, of course, great loves have to end because the CW and the rest of those Hollywood losers don't know how to keep a good thing going but, deep breath, I'm going to have to put my anger aside even though, just like Gossip Girl, they led us on for five freakin' seasons and gave us a couple of stinky side-dish episodes they decided to call season six.
|Remember when Annie's hair was still that hideous shade of just-plucked-from-the-farm?|
Remember how Dawson's Creek ended? Beverly Hills, 90210? Desperate Housewives? That was premium entertainment.
But enough of that, this all a story for another time. I shouldn't get into all the lose ends and cheap shot endings that were chosen right now because I WILL NEVER STOP.
Let's celebrate the six seasons of great style 90210 gave us. Especially in the form of we're-not-in-Kansas-anymore Annie Wilson and what-kind-of-place-doesn't-have-valet-parking Naomi Clark.
