90210 > 90210 Season Three Report Card: C > Comments Page 2
If GG's so good, then why do all of its actors frequently complain about their characters and the show in general. And how can anyone say that the characters on GG are complex and well-developed? In the pilot, Chuck tried to rape Jenny. Near the end of season 4, he threw himself at Blair. Is that what you call character development?
I don't understand how you can say that 90210 is better than Gossip Girl. The stories on 90210 are inconsistent and the acting is awful. At least on Gossip Girl you have the undeniable talent of Leighton Meester, Ed Westwick and Penn Badgley. While some of the actors on the show may have some talent, the writers do not give them the opportunity for them to show it, but Josh Schwartz and his team give Blair and Chuck incredibly emotional scenes to show off their talent. 90210 and Gossip Girl are incomparable.
I don't think that the acting on 90210 is that bad. Shenae and AnnaLynne may suck, but the two Jessicas are good. As for the guys, I think that both Michael Steger and Tristan Wilds are good.
And as much as I complain about 90210, I still think it's much better than Gossip Girl. Since the beginning of season 2, GG has been Chuck/Blair plus filler. And even they're not as good as they used to be.
Best character is Naomi. Although Teddy's storyline was a good one, I still prefer Naomi cause she's one of the original cast. She has always a the funny lines and the most entertaining storylines. And to be honest, she really can't act but that's ok because in real life teenagers don't act like the people in Gossip Girl by looking all fashionable and have all that complex personalities. Teenagers are dumb and make none-realistic decision and are superficial. All in one teenagers behave like bad actors. So why even bother casting a talented actor that acts like a bad actor ? Just hire some good looking people and let them say some lines. That's the best solution. 90210 have bad actors that portrays the real life version of bad actors, teenagers. They are bad actors but who cares ?
OMG, Ok 90210 is not the show of the year, but i like it. Maybe the cast isn't talentuous as the GG's cast (but they're not great too). GG become so ridiculous since the season 3. Stupids storylines, that's just great to see the clothes and 'cause the actors are hot. In 90210 that's more funny, more simple. My favorite : Adrianna, she always has bad things. And when everything ok, she make bad things. So funny. We nerver bored with Ade. Worst : Navid and Dixon are so boring. What about Shirazi 2.0 ? 90210 desearve at least a B
This just proves how much TV Fanatic hates Shenae Grimes and Annalyn McCord. To think those girls didn't do anything wrong than just performed what they were supposed to do for the show. To think they almost didn't make it home alive when they were also caught amidst the panic and the crisis happening in Japan because of that large-scale earthquake there.
And shame on TV Fanatic for not even reporting that incident when two castmembers from one of the shows they're covering were there.
some fanatics really pissed when a few guest stars got more screentime than the regulars. But for me, i rather watch the guest stars instead of those boring-as-hell regulars. :/
My grade would be a B- because of the inconsistency and rushing.
Best character: Teddy. Though after he came out he disappeared and his boy friend problems were stupid I think he was the best this year. Adrianna is by far my favorite character, but I wish they didn't make her so evil this year, though she does it so well.
Worst character: Even though Dixon didn't do anything this season Navid was the worst. They totally ruined his whole nice guy act and made him a bad guy. I can't stand him anymore.
Best storyline: Teddy's coming out story. By far.
Best episode: Off the top of my head idk but the beginning of the season was wayyy better than the last half. I loved the episode Teddy actually came out and the part when Jenn dropped her baby (Idk the ep) was heartbreaking.
My hopes: With the new writers I think it'll be easier to keep all 9 characters. They better and if they don't please cut Liam, Dixon, and Navid. I love all the girls and Teddy. Liam has no personalit
i think you meant RAJ not ray hahhaha and i think gossip girl was way better at its firts season than it is now, you worship it way too much ( in my oppinion.)
90210 is my favourite program ever! the story lines are becoming slightly repetitive with Naomi being pregnant but my theory is that maybe she's not really pregnant! she said she needed to find some way to make max stay! Maybe this was a reason she came up with? Hope season 4 is amazing, i just can't wait. And i hope the seasons keep on coming into the future.
C is the usual grade for things that are mediocrity. I totally agree with the reviewer about this. 90210 didn't come up with one incredible storyline that knock somebody's sock off this season. The most groundbreaking thing they came up this year was the Teddy gay storyline but that chance was given away by announcing it months before it actually happened. I would have sit and watch if he was really going to be gay or if it was just a phase. That would be better watching than me already knowing that he'll be gay. What also upsets me was the Naomi rape storyline. It was an insulting way how they portrayed such a serious issue. AnnaLynne McCord's skills are way to unskilled to play a rape victim. The way this story ended was horrible. I mean Mr.Cannon kidnapping Silver & Naomi in order to get money and then he got beaten by a hysterical Naomi. And no after match after that. Her rapist is arrested and that's it for her. No emotional scar or experience that made her mature and become a
I lost respect for this show the day they booted Jennie Garth form the show... She was the only character that made sense and acted her scenes brilliantly... TVF goes on about AnnaLyne McCord's acting, which is bad. But the fact is, that most of the characters are bad at acting... The people behind the scenes are to blame for this as they clearly chose on looks alone. Anna needs to get some work done and she will be better, but the producers won't invest time in that. They just give the actors these ridiculous stories and expect them to act it out with a glance back at how it is being done. I really think The CW should scrap it after season 4 and redo it but use the same people that did the original. The CW needs to freakin wake up and do things right if they want their shows to be taken seriously. Seriously.
I like the show but what really pisses me off is the fact that they do cliched stories and try to do too much. And I actually think the best episodes were the season premiere and the Enchanted Donkey. After the Enchanted Donkey they tried too hard to do too much in the space of 4 episodes. I liked Teddy's storyline the best and thought it was handled well but they gave the game away too soon - it would have had more impact if they hadn't announced that he was going to be gay. They also don't finish off storylines properly - What happened to Adrianna's reality show? I also don't think the acting is particularly terrible - Jessica Stroup has real talent- and Dixon was definitely underused this season. Overall I would say B-
Best character: Naomi. It's obvious because she carries she show with her storylines. AnnaLynne McCord can't really act but the others are even worse. I was glad that her rape storyline was over because it was horribly done and 90210 is not a show that can handle such a serious issue. Overall I liked her with Max and will see what's about her baby storyline.
Worst character: Somewhere between Dixon and Annie. They served their purpose in season 1 when they were the new ones in BH and quite the outsider status. But where was Dixon this year ? I guess not in 90210. Annie because Shenae Grimes' portrayal is just beneath contempt. Also her storylines were so uninteresting. Selling her ovocytes, making out with Charlie, Annie & Liam with absolutely no chemistry and the cousin Emily thing lasted a few episodes.
Best episode : ''The prom before the storm'' Well it's a BH 90210 tradition that prom episodes are the best.
Best storyline. Adrianna scheming on silver. Although not a
best episode: "The Enchanted Donkey". Lannie were the best part of it (actually best part of the show). Everyone goty their screen moment. And storylines were entertaining.
best character: Definitely Annie . It's a shame this show is all about and around Naomi.
Actress most in need of a cheeseburger: Annalynne McCord. Isn't it even obvious ? Shenae isn't skinny now at all , she has good body.
Hopes for 2011-2012: More Lannie is a MUST. I want to see smart drama , not some lame hooking up everyone with anyone. More grown up storylines. Maybe some family issues. Couple becoming more stable.
I want MORE LIAM!!! Give guy a storyline!
best character: Adrianna (3x17-3x22). I loved to hate her from 3x17-3x21, and I just plain loved her in 3x22. After being stuck playing a "cartoon-like diva" (Matt Richenthal) for most of the season, Lowndes was finally given a chance to shine in these last few episodes. She did an excellent job at playing both a manipulative psychopath a suicidal teenager.
worst character: Navid. I know he's just a fictional character, but I used to look up to him. He was an excellent role model for young men like me. Now, he lies, cheats, sneaks around, and is an all around hypocrite. I can't even look at him anymore.
best episode: "The Enchanted Donkey". Watching Silver and Adrianna sabotage each other was entertaining. Watching Naomi and Max in the bedroom was entertaining. I loved Ivy's scenes with both Dixon and Raj. And for once, I actually thought Lannie was kind of cute.
best storyline: Naomi's rape, I suppose. But even it could've been better. It was weird how it was prominent for t
Uhhhhh, C really! I would give them at least an B minus cause they improved from season 2 and 1! The biggest problem of this show is that they are rushing through the show!
Not a single storyline is done well! And this whole we are BFF's and they don't even get mad at each other come on! Annie sleeps with Liam and his brother is cool with it! The Emily and Teddy stories where rushed through without any consequences !
And Adrianna wasn't the worst character it was Dixon! Adrianna story was poorly done but she played the part of the self-absorbing, spoild and evil bitch really good!
In comparison to VD and Nikita it is a slow show, but GG and Hellcats were done just as bad as 90210 and the raitings show that 90210 was the better show this year!
In 2011/2012 i wish a serial killer who will kill Dixon, navid, Adriana! And some new interesting stories and bring Emily back and Ethan!
i have liked Gossip Girl better than 90210, but this time i think 90210 was better in storylines. As far as acting, i have no comments for 90210. The regular cast of GG is simply awesome, especially Leighton Meester!
Anyways, i agree with pw and aria that a C is a bit harsh considering that almost every episode of this season got great marks from the critics. I think it deserves at least a B-. To me, if the acting in the show was better, the story lines could of been more believable, and therefore earn a higher grade.
Also, I dont think Adrianna was the worst character and I dont think there really was a "best character".. Everyone was okay - not bad not great.
I honestly hope that 90210 does great in season four considering that it has new fresh start with college because I definitely want a season 5! :D
LMFAO ABOUT THE COMMENTS OF 90210 BEING BETTER THAN GOSSIP GIRL. GG HAS THE BETTER CLOTHES AND FASHION, THE CHARACTERS ARE MORE COMPLEX AND DEVELOP THROUGH THE SEASONS, THE STORYLINES ARE BETTER WRITTEN, THE SCHEMING IS BADASS, THE ACTORS CAN REALLY ACT, THE GG CAST LOOKS HOTTER AND THE ANNOYING CHARACTERS WERE FIRED WHILE 90210 WILL STILL STICK AROUND WITH ANOREXIC SHENAE GRIMES FOR THE NEXT SEASON.
Please C is still a nice rating for this show considering the bad acting in this show by almost every character. The handling of Naomi's rape was an insult to real victims. She was raped got a bit crazy and drunken and few episodes later everything is okay and shiny world. Totally handed the wrong way. So was the Teddy gay plot. I don't even start about the uselessness of Shenae Grimes' character. Also it's not true GG is less viewed then 90210. While more people watch 90210 on tv. Only a few of GG viewers watch directly in tv but more through internet. GG is always first ranked by iTunes after an episodes release also on sides like tvDuck it's always in top 3 while 90210 is somewhere from 40st place. Also don't place GG on the same level with 90210. While GG has intriguing character with developments and OMG to WTF storylines. 90210 is still stuck where they were from the beginning. Naomi was the bitch from season 1 until now, neither there's any change in her even after the rape. Dix
i totaly agree with pw ur way to hard on this show and more ppl watch 90210 then gossip girl so its clearly a better show and you ppl on hear who i love has gotten this way wrong u gave like 3 episodes out of 22 a bad review and the rest got around 4 stars so how dos that mean it gets a C ??? defo should be a B xx
oh my god are u kidding me really c u gave nearly every eppisode a 4 or 5 star rateing and come on ade was not the worst in the show she was anoying but she was a massive part of the season and jessica l is a really good actress and so is annalynne mc cord teddys comeing out was not predictable i mean come on u just wont give the show a break just coz u dont like it dosnt mean u need to rip into it i love the show but i wouldnt give it an a it was a B season and really gossip girl is the same thing every season its so boreing and i so wont be comeing on to this website ever again coz u havent got a clue what ur talking about
Think that a C is quite a fair result for this season of 90210. Like Poppy said above, when i hear the plotlines i think oly S*** and get all excited, but am ultimartly let down. Am hoping for a massive character shake up, as there are just way too many character, and some have done nothing really ie. Dixon.
They deffo need to seize the whole college thing and just try and plan out what to do. I know many people will hate me for saying this, but Annie deffo has to go. bak in season 1, when she ran the guy over, i ws lik "BOOM! interestin", but that whole storyline was played out HORRIBLY, and i think the producers wished it just didnt happen. Navid serves little purpose, and i think that instead of Adrianna fixing her relationships with evry1, the smartest thing to do would have been to keep her as a Georgina Sparks-type character, who stirs up shit and doesnt care that they aren't liked. Finally, i actually really like teddy and Ivy, and, although im not the biggest fan of her weddin
COME ON HOLIDAY MADNESS WAS AMAZING TEDDY CONFESSING HIS FEELINGS
ANNIE AND LIAM
MR.CANNON ATTACKING NAOMI
ANNIE AND LIAM.YES I SAID IT RTWICE BUT THAT WAS CRAZY AND BIGGEST SHOCKER WAS THE MR CANNON IT WAS CREEPY DEFENITLY THE BEST EPISODE
Every time I hear of a new 90210 storyline which sounds great, I tune in. But I am almost always disappointed.
I feel this show has never found it's way, so a cast shake-up might help it. As you said, it lacks the suspense of TVD, the wit of GG and even the warmth of the original Beverly Hills 90210.
Moving onto college offers a wealth of opportunities for the show, let's hope they seize them. It'll never last 10 seasons, but hopefully S4 will be an improvement on S3.
