Morning After Report: 90210 Episode 17 'Life's a Drag'
Wasn't life a drag without new episodes of the new(ish) 90210 to obsess over? Luckily the CW was heavy-handed with reruns of the first 16. Ahem. So, despite a several week-long stall, we're picking up exactly where we left off.

Naomi kicks things off with an apology to the underage bartender she tried to woo at the imaginary W Hotel. He responds by throwing her against the lockers and giving her a tongue lashing--i.e. right down her throat. Rrrrowl! Not only was he happy to see her...but he also had a banana in his pocket. What? Clever little dream sequence. But guess who was getting down and dirty at West Bev? Silver and Dixon, the little bunnies, are scrambling to re-dress after doing it in the media room. Oh, and how does the location work for them, per Silver: "Media Room: better than under the bleachers but not as good as the cafeteria." Gross. Get a room. Dixon at least wants a bed...Silver wants a bed of roses at the Huntington Gardens. Well, that sure would give Pasadena's horticulturalists something to talk about.
Motormouth Annie is apologizing ad nauseum for using Rhonda's story for her acting class. Ethan isn't into it, because what she did was sucky, but her acting was so good he now doesn't know who she really is. Teenaged boys these days are deep thinkers! So are teenaged girls, because Silver is beyond enthused about Lord Byron and love poetry.
Naomi is in Geometry class--awake and not dreaming--when the underage bartender strolls in late. He does not know some formula, and I long to jump into the TV to tell all of them that for the most part, this material has zero application in real life, when I notice that new 90210 shares a funny quirk with old 90210--just like Brandon carried around for three years the same Biology text book I used in the 9th grade, right in front of Naomi sits the exact same Geometry text book I hated to crack open in the 11th grade. Anyhow, Naomi needs some extra credit so she offers to tutor underage bartender in Geometry. I'm guessing that would be like me offering to tutor someone in Geometry. Oh well. Let's roll that opening theme riff and enjoy some ads for zit cream...
