90210 Review: The Bitch Is Back?

by at . Comments

"Babes in Toyland" seemed more like babes in the woods.

We just witnessed Naomi Clark dressed in a latex Catwoman-style sex suit in what may have been the only highlight of what was otherwise one of the more turgid 90210 episodes so far this season.

The promise of bad girl Jen back on the scene fizzled out because it seems that Paris has turned Jen into more of a flat souffle than the hot tarte she used to be.

Back in town with baby Jacques in tow, at first it seemed she was around to stir up trouble. Alas, all she was looking for was love and a baby daddy. Neither of which panned out.

The Clark Sisters

Naomi rented out a sex shop and landed the big ticket client Naomi Clark Events needed. But it was Jen's flirting with - and eventual blackmail of - married Mr. Paddington that gave Naomi's start-up the boost it needed.

Loved that Naomi had to break into the sex shop and wear that latex suit she claimed to be allergic to. Is there nothing that girl can't wear and not look amazing in?

Of course, the minute Naomi swore off men and claimed to be channeling all her energy into her career she accidentally met future soulmate number-27 in Preston Hillingsbrook.

And will anyone please explain how Annie can continually meet rich guys? All of a sudden in business with Hillingsbrook because she bought a $40,000 bag without looking at the price?

Was it wrong of me to think of this as another boring storyline for Annie that was sheer torture? Although balloon archery did look like fun.

Silver was psyched to have gotten accepted into NYU until Dr. Negative Nelly's breast cancer chat bummed her out. Poor girl, after having had such a rough year she just wanted to be excited about her future.

Meanwhile, the doctor just brought her down with her droning on and on about family history this and death before 30 that. Genetic testing can do that to you.

Elsewhere, Vanessa showed her true conniving colors by sending Adrianna and Dixon on a fake meeting with the VP of A&R of Def Jam while she stole their movie producer audition.

But really, how stupid were those two? A meeting at a coffee house in Echo Park with a big time record exec? Adrianna should have listened to Dixon's advice: don't quit your day job.

And all of a sudden Liam was a major movie star with a trailer because Vanessa worked what her mama gave her and "influenced" the big time movie producer?!? Of course. Doesn't it always work that way in Hollywood?

Ivy continued down "bad girl" road and became further involved with the local gang of street artists. And the attraction to Street Guy finally boiled over. Like we didn't see that coming.

But does anyone out there really care about Ivy's new Raj-lookalike street boyfriend? Do we care if Jen intends to stick around and bore us all with her quest for acceptance and love? And will Liam ever stop acting like a block of wood?

Guess we'll have to wait until next week to find out.

Um sorry for you Jarrod Mitchell, while its likely to get another season, gossip girl will definately be getting one more season. Its in their contracts... But we'll see, upfronts is a month and a half away.

A pretty slow episode! missed a bit of action!
The dixon/ade/Vanessa stupidity was really done stupid! She called, he called! Where did she got the number come on! We can do it better!? Flatting their tires would be more believable!
Silver! And the breast cancer!? Nice to bring this story back, I know Jessica can pull this story off just if they write it decent enough!
Annie and the ritch guy! Solid story! A typical Annie mess, she being naive, he being an as*! standard regular story!
Naomi and Jenn! I wanted more, but come on ! Jen grow up, yes it's hard to believe it but she wants just to be happy! And these sister got each others back! remember Jen wanting to kill Mr. Cannon! The sex shop scenes were really laughable!
Seems like there will be enough drama and fun next week! With Ade taking down V and Naomi and Jenn wanting Annies rich guy!

I didn't really think it was a strong opening, but it does have a lot of potential for the next episode.
I look forward to Adrianna and Dixon taking down Vanessa. I can't wait for her to go. I actually hate Vanessa so much. I can't wait for Liam to give her the boot.
I felt bad for Silver. I know she won't have cancer and the only reason for these test are for the writers to lead into her pregnancy storyline.
Annie did annoy me this episode. I'm sick of her innocent act. I wish that she'd embrace life and her fortune.
I knew Naomi's plan would backfire, but I'm glad Jen was there to assist Naomi in landing that client, even though it was in the most awkward manner.
Ivy was just plain annoying too. I'm sick of her constant changes in interest. Not to mention, isn't she still married, but also seeing someone else on top of kissing someone? I'm not for name calling, but honestly, she's turning into quite the slut.

Sucks for those who want it canceled, as it's more than likely to get renewed over Nikita, Hart of Dixie, Ringer and Gossip Girl. It's all the way up there with renewal along with Supernatural, The Vampire Dairies and The Secret Circle.

Couldn't have said it better myself @Sa'ad702. They are definitely ruining the legacy of the original series. This show used to have promise, but it all became very inconsistent. I hate what this show has become. I really do.

They should end it with this season. I'd rather watch McCord in something else.

Saad702

The acting is appalling. Instant coffee is stronger than the stories, the directing is sub par. The only thing its got going for it is AnnaLynne and Matt's bodies and Jessica Lowndes beautiful face. Seriously end this crap NOW!

Saad702

OMG. I really hope they cancel this awful show. It is RIDICULOUS in the extremes and is ruining the image of the original series which was freakin amazing! Seriously! No amount of guest stars and stories is gonna change how dumb and stupid this show has become! They rather cancel this crap and save nikita and move it to another night so ratings can increase!!!!!

Everyone in Paris is much too willowy...especially the men.

Jen

Are you forgetting the time when you tried to make fanny packs in Beverly Hills a felony offense?
