You know what's more exhilarating than Valentine's Day Beverly Hills teenager style? How about a show that includes sneak previews of the Jonas Brothers' 3D Movie? Ohhh, yeah, baby. Okay, actually, it's less "ohhh yeah" and more "ohhhh yuck!" but that's why God invented the dvr and the fast forward button--you know, for Generation Xers who watch a show about teenagers because it's loosely affiliated with a show that ushered us into our own fragile teen years. So let's get it on. I mean, it is the Valentine's Day episode and all...

Naomi, a 16-year-old who goes to a public high school and has a dad who lives at the beach with his new young chippy and a mom who bailed out of the blue to go vacation in New York to "find herself" or something, has been living at the W Hotel. Just who is footing the bill and why either of her parents are tolerating this is beyond understanding, but in TV land, anything is possible. Much like the fact that Naomi throws open her hotel room curtains and drinks in a view of the Capitol Records Building; this girl has super-powered eyesight, since the only W open for business in LA is in Westwood. Of course, she could live in the future, as in a year from now, when the W Hollywood is expected to be open, but...nah, that's not going to happen on this show. Regardless of the geography, this hotel seems super fantastic, because everyone knows Naomi by name, and they have her Vanilla Skim Latte ready to go and her car already pulled around up front so she can drive her spoiled ass to West Bev High in time for Chem class.
