No, I never watched Beverly Hills 90210. I was probably busy watching Law & Order or Northern Exposure. Besides, I'm not big on "teenage angst." As their mother, it was my job to deal with my own teenagers and their angst while I worked hard at not strangling them, doing all I could to guide them towards a decent self-sufficient and productive life. Difficult, yet rewarding. Therefore, seeing all of these foibles, tantrums, etc dramatized on television was not interesting to me.Maybe I'm just weird since everyone else I knew watched it religiously.Anyway, check out the way Provenza cuts off people, especially Tau, when they attempt to explain things. He talks over people as if he's the last word on everything. Just because he's been there for 400 years does not mean he knows everything. He was so much more entertaining when he was simply the resident buffoon as he led Flynn down the rabbit hole.
Another good episode. However, even though the writers are not going to be asking me for my opinion, I think Provenza and his nasty habit of cutting everyone off, especially Tau, is getting old. Really, really old. It's right up there with Rusty's ongoing rudeness to everyone he meets for the first time. What's that about? Which brings me to the number of colleges on the eastern seaboard. I'm sure that at least one of them would take him, yes? I guess I'm just tired of his dismissive air whenever Sharon makes a suggestion. My greatest fear is that he signed a long term contract with the show runners. Oh well, I guess that's what the mute button is for. Then there's Luke Perry. I've never seen him in anything else, so I was completely unfamiliar with his acting, but was good in this role. Even though I cannot imagine actually swooning or going ga-ga over an actor, I found it hilarious that the women were swooning, if only because it bothered the men so much.

You're right, I'm now remembering how she introduced herself. Thanks. However, once she did that, she could have dropped the arrogant and dismissive posture and not have been so combative. Expressing concerns can be done with civility. For the writers to have portrayed her in this manner was not pleasant. They could have shown that a woman can be strong and decisive without snarling at everyone, or is this the way they see a strong outspoken woman? I wonder.
