Originality Is So 90s


I have seven words for the cast, crew, production company, and network behind the updated version of 90210: Saved By The Bell: The New Class.

It's nice to see Tristan Wilds get some work after his work on The Wire, but portraying the bad black kid that gets adopted by the nice wealthy white family: Yawn.

And Michelle Tanner's auntie playing the mom that's "as cool as the kids:" MILF, please. Poor Becky.

Then there's the narrator proclaiming, "The New 90210: Cooler, sexier, more provocative. Where every story is intriguing and every character has a secret. And nothing is what you expect." Yeah, whatever. Uh huh. That's what they all say.

It will be the same old tired story lines only with more underage sex and without Brenda Walsh again. Not to mention more drug references, pregnancy scares, bouts with bulimia, and girl-on-girl action if the censors let them get away with it. Oh wait, there's a younger male teacher, too. Expect him to push up on a student. Male or female? Well, I guess we'll just have to tune in to find out, won't he?

This show looks like a knockoff version of the OC which is a knockoff of the original 90210. I thought The Hills killed all of these shows off two or three years ago anyway? Do we really need another show dedicated to spoiled, pampered, horny, rich white kids with no real problems? Haven't we reached our quota for these teen dramas for the next 25 years already?

What happened to shows with Black people in them? We all don't live near Tyler Perry, y'know. And we're not all in jail either. You want to bring a show back? Bring back 227! That building may be gentrified by now, so the cast of Frasier lives there now but ya'll know what I'm saying.

The Cynical Ones.
