surreal parody of what you'd expect from a high school popularity show
6 January 2017 | by RavenGlamDVDCollectorSee all my reviews

Yeah, exactly what this series needed from the start. Ch-ch-changes. Big time. Almost all the supporting cast. And that "foremost perpetrator" main driving force... Read on...

{don't think that it's fun for me to write this, it is a saddening experience}

The big question while watching this: Is this junk? Yes. Right then, is it good junk? At times. There most certainly are moments. I, of course, am here for Leslie Bibb, and Carly Pope has become a favorite as well. As for that other lot... Well, I'd cheerfully give 'em the sack. Tammy Lynn Michaels, ooh girl, you'd hit the road so hard your head will spin, you ham actress you. :) And Leslie Grossman, you campy over-acting ol' thing, really, wherever did they find you? Mars? :) Actually, I am not kidding. For this particular episode though, my wrath is focused on Delta Burke. Ooh what can I say? I'll leave it to what Al Bundy on MARRIED WITH CHILDREN would say, and we all know what he would think of her. Unfortunately, if I went the whole hog like that, this review wouldn't get posted. Summed up: Delta Burke, please leave! Never darken my screen again. (Agreed, lots of people would find her entertaining, there is just no accounting for tastes, is there?)

I'm sorry, but in the cold hard light of day, face the facts, guys, this show missed the POT when it missed out on WHAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE PLOT taking the torch from BEVERLY HILLS 90210. Instead we have this junk which is most of the time really just a whole load of embarrassing drivel. Every third character is weirder than weird super-gay turning it into the GLAD torch-bearer Deluxe thanks to the firm hand on the wheel of Mister Ryan Murphy. It doesn't have the wallowing-in-mockery (okay, in all fairness now, that's my own opinion) of his later NIP/TUCK, so I'm not going to say too much, but all the queer goings-on have become boringly predictable.

In short, it should have been titled GAY HIGH OOH LA LA or something like that.

Not at all what I took it for when I signed up buying both seasons. Irritating characters abound, and Mister Murphy's thinly-veiled agenda of providing a platform for everything & anything NOT STRAIGHT quickly becomes a pain in the ass, pun intended.

This show is watchable to me only because of its two female leads. I'd much rather have wanted to see those two in a better presented show, one that isn't such a weird lot of nonsense.

To the many fans: Sorry for offending you. But take another long, hard look at the show, and see its inane structure BEFORE dissing my opinion. Thank you.
