In an earlier post, I mentioned that the 2 main characters were twins. Obviously, this was not the case when the show aired Tuesday. Brandon and Brenda.. I mean Dixon and Annie are the same age but Dixon is a brotha, Annie’s not a sista, it turns out Dixon was adopted by the Wilson’s. Thought I’d just clear that up.
I was lead to believe that Kelly and Brenda were going to be characters on the show, but they were credited as “special guest stars”, whatever that means. I hope that the producers realize that viewers want to see them on the show (by viewers I mean me) and write their characters in permanently. From what I’ve read, they’ll have recurring roles; it’ll be much more than that if Himbo has anything to do about it. Kelly is the guidance counselor at West Beverly Hills H.S. and Brenda came back from London to direct a musical, also at West Beverly Hills H.S.
I am most excited that the characters from the original series returned so I thought about not mentioning the very thing I'm about to mention, but it wouldn’t be me if I didn’t: [clearing throat] Doesn’t Shannen Doherty look tow up from the flow up? After the excitement of her debut, I thought to myself, “Dang, the girl looks tossed up from the socks up”, and I never noticed the gap in her grill before! I’m not gonna hate on her gap too much because… [ahem, ahem] Madonna, Elton, Sandra Bernhard, etc. I must admit, her entrance was bad-ass though. I screamed like a little girl when each of them first appeared, but when Brenda shows up and starts screaming and hugging... I felt like I was right there with them, in fact, I think I ended up on my feet and had to sit back down and regain my composure.
Dude, I love the alchie-grandma, that heifer is funny! She is L.U.X.U.R.I.O.U.S. She had me in stitches every time she opened her drunk-ass mouth.
So the writers went full force with the amount of “issues” they tackled in the first episode. For example, today’s teenager has to deal with the dangers of blogging. Lol yes, they worked that in the premier episode but it sounds worst than it really is. I <3'd Naomi’s birthday party! I want my next birthday party to be just like that. The best part of all was the t.v. screen displaying a posing Naomi, just in case you forgot who’s party you were at.
Gula called as soon as the series premier was over, to compare notes. She caught a lot of things I didn’t notice until after she pointed them out to me. Here are a couple:
1. Somehow I missed the whole Silver thing; obviously that’s Erin Silver, sister of Kelly Taylor and David Silver.
2. The nerdy journalist/host of "The West Beverly Blaze", Hannah Zuckerman-Vasquez is obviously Andrea’s daughter. Did you catch the homage to Andrea when the teacher says, “How old is that girl, like 30”, or something to that affect.
Annie Wilson closes the episode with a cute quote, [waving her finger in a circle] “We ain’t in Kansas no mo”.
Okay, I'm going to bed. Buenas noches!
