We have no parents so we eat fast food all day.

Everybody talks about Beverly Hills 90210, The OC, Dawson’s creek, One Tree Hill, but what about Party of Five? Does anybody remember this show? Anybody?

The reason why I wanted to watch this show in the first place was because I found out Jennifer Love Hewitt is in it and I’m a huge fan. Yes, I said it. Don’t make fun of me! Sadly she is not in the first season, but who cares because the first season is super entertaining! Who needs Love Hewitt?

Mr. and Mrs. Salinger have died tragically in a car accident. Bailey, Julia, Claudia, and Owen are orphans and their new guadian is their 24 year old brother Charlie. Here are the best and worst bits of each character:

Charlie : Best episode: When he was caring for his baby brother Owen like a father. So cute and touching.

              Worst episode: When he cheated on Kirsten! Luckily I forgave him for that after two or   three episodes.

Bailey : Best episode: When he stuck to his principles on whether or not he should rat out on his friend to stay on the football team.

            Worst episode: The entire time he was with who-cares-about-morals-drug-addict-liar Jill! This went on for a long time. He wouldn’t even listen to Charlie’s advice. Where’s Brandon Walsh? He could give this guy a lecture or two about his ways.

Julia : Best Episode: When she thought it was a good idea to talk to the man that was at fault for killing their parents. Good for you Julia.

         Worst Episode: Uh, there were tons! Over half of the season Julia was acting like a brat! When she lent her house to be the party house without telling the rest of the family. When she pretended to like a guy so she can have sex and quickly lose her virginity. When she pretended she was twenty one. When she made a guy fall in love with her when he was way too old to be dating her (still pretending to be twenty one). When she didn’t want to talk to Charlie while he wanted to tell her that Owen was in hospital. There’s a lot more.

Claudia : Best Episode: The time she sold her voilin to help the family out with their financial issues.

               Worst Episode: She was acting like a brat and wouldn’t listen to Charlie. She did whatever she wanted even though Charlie is the legal guardian. She drove Charlie up the wall and she drove me way up the wall!

Owen : He’s so cute! All he does is eat, sleep and cry, so he’s great all the time. I hope he doesn’t grow up into a brat. Teenagers are such a handful. Tweens are annoying.

 Matthew Fox (Charlie) plays Jack in ‘Lost’. He looks really different with long hair. Neve Campbell is not hot. Hewitt is so much prettier. Sorry. No comparison. Campbell sucks at acting too. It’s really annoying whenever she does that one nervous laugh that isn’t really a laugh whenever she talks. Sounds more like a high pitched exhale. She does it when she’s nervous, casually talking, and when she’s close to tears. Enough!

 I love this show for it’s realism, unlike the crappy teenage stuff on today. I’ve only seen the first season and it’s great so far. The finale surprised me. I can’t wait for season two. Jennifer Love Hewitt will make her first appearances!!! Who needs her? Uh, if this show continues to keep Neve Campbell, this does.

And BV 90210 enter our lives.

It’s 1990, and I am born. While I have no idea what is going around me, people in America are watching the first episode of Beverly Hills 90210. I actually never heard about it until the episode of their reunion aired on television. I was a big fan of Prue Halliwell from Charmed, and hated the rest of the season when she left. So you can tell how excited I was to see her in her teen years on a hit teenage drama. I love teenage dramas.

Family Guy (One Tree Hill):

Nathan: Dude, let me tell you something. There is nothing that will ever happen in the rest of our lives that is as important as what’s going on, right here, right now in high school by these lockers.

Lucus: I got so many problems

Nathan: Hey, nothing that can’t be fixed by starring at a lake.

Weep, well said you guys. I live right by a creak, but it’s covered in old packets of potato chips and soda cans, and there’s barely any water because of the drought. I think I’ll just get angrier if I stare at it too long. . . SO Brenda and Brandon Walsh (played by Jason Priestley and Shannon Doherty) had moved from a town in Minneapolis to Beverly Hills because of their father’s job. A major culture change. They must have filmed this in 1989 or something because the eighties were still rocking in this show. The first thing we see is Brandon Walsh waking up with a mullet. Oh the horror! I was glad that he decided to cut that thing off. 90210 became so famous and loved by many teenagers. Some people even believed that it was a realistic show. I’ve never lived in Beverly Hills so I wouldn’t know what it was like. Brenda quickly made a friend in chemistry class by the name of Kelly Taylor. Kelly didn’t want to sit with a loser, and she just had a nose job which showed the audience what character we were expecting. Kelly annoyed me so much. Her voice wasn’t helping either. Steve Sanders was only slightly better. He was the cocky blonde guy (so typical) and wanted to get back together with his Kelly. He was also really stupid. Especially in the episode where the girls steal his car. He allowed them to screw with him twice!

Everyone at school were invited to a party except for the freshmens, so David Silver and his side-kick decided to crash it anyway. David Silver was pretty much the most desperate kid you’ll ever meet! Brandon met the host of the party who was having lots of problems, comforts her, and in seconds the two of them were dating. Through out the first season, Brandon always seemed to get every pretty brunette that gets shoved in his face. The mexican girl, the senior with the baby, the tv actress, uh, uh, I’m sure there’s more but I can’t think of any more right now. The brunette that he should have been with was Andrea Zuckerman, although I thought they would have been a strange couple at first. Andrea was his boss, the editor of the school newspaper. She was his wise friend who was always right about everything. Her social life wasn’t very active and she hid it behind her school job.

The best thing about this show was Brenda and Dylan. Dylan McKay was the mysterious James Dean looking kid. He had the money, but he didn’t have what he wanted most; love. His father didn’t pay attention to him and his mother was a flake. His life started to change when he met the Walshes, and fell in love with Brenda. They were so happy together, if only the father could see it. The biggest problem they had was ‘sex’. When was she going to put out? Did she want to put out?

Eventually she did. Brenda and Brandon found out that they would be moving back to Minneapolis (already!) and they felt miserable. They had only been there one year. They lived in Minneapolis for their whole lives. They should had been slightly more excited. Sex was still a problem between Brenda and Dylan because it the season ended with her thinking she might be pregnant. That would suck. They did it like, two times. This means that the first time is not a free pass, Michael Kelso!

I forgot about Donna Martin on purpose because in the first season she was pretty much a nobody. I only knew her as Kelly and Brenda’s friend. There was only one episode with her storyline; April is the Cruelest Month. Matthew Perry was in that episode as a rich senior student, Roger. Even though Brandon promised to remain friends with him, he was never seen in another episode ever again. Too bad. I knew him better in that single episode than Donna for the whole season.

I hate the music, the clothes, and the hair, but this is one of the best teenage dramas ever made.
