We all have at least one guilty pleasure TV show that we know is killing brain cells but we can't stop. Right? Or is that just me?
Mine is most certainly the new 90210 (returning for the second half of Season 5 on Monday, January 19!). I also loved Melrose Place but The CW went and cancelled that. Broke my heart. But back to 90210 and why you should be watching: it's just fantastic! The acting is almost too bad to believe, which just perpetuates my belief that this isn't a TV show and is in fact real life somewhere. Somewhere that I want to be! Similar to the original 90210, it follows the lives of Beverly Hills high schoolers beyond high school and into "real life" which is not really anyone's real life. The cast encounter jealous ex-boyfriends, porn and then car theft rings, in-vitro fertilization, recovering drug addicts, and so much more. It's pure TV gold. Late last summer I'm pretty sure EV and I plowed through several full seasons and now I'm finally caught up. Now that Gossip Girl is off the air, I'd strongly encourage you to consider 90210 as your new TV show of choice.
Seriously, this should be reason enough:
