90210 - Season Two
on 16 August 2011
Season One of the revamped classic 90210 was a good start- it wasn't award winning in its quality but it certainly made for enjoyable viewing. Season Two, thus, was a disappointment by comparison. The season isn't terrible but it lost alot of the glossiness which Season One possessed, and the storylines are handled badly- either dragging out stories which didn't need to be or else adding truly bizarre twists into the mix.
This series manages to move supporting characters like Naomi and Silver into the limelight whilst last season's lead characters move more to the back- a bold move although slightly irritating given that Annie, for example, has a rather compelling storyline this season.
The series also fails in it's realism in comparison to Season One- whilst that series was eccentric and rather different from my Bristolian life- it did ring true through its characters. This Season is bizarre in its feel- somewhere between a reality TV show and a teenage drama.
Despite my criticisms, there really are some great storylines this season, and for anyone who was a fan of Season One, it certainly makes for great viewing- and Season Three tops both it's predecessors so it's worth hanging on and watching this Season to bridge the gap between the two!
