90210 3.08 “Mother Dearest” Review

It’s sweeps period, but you wouldn’t know it on tonight’s episode of 90210. Is that a bad thing? I guess it depends on who you ask. The episode wasn’t bad by any means, but I wasn’t wowed as I was with the previous entries this season. I blame my massive headache at the moment.

Navid’s Wake Up Call

While I vehemently despise Mr. Shirazi for hiring underage girls for his films, I kind of wanted to hit Navid in the mouth tonight for his condescending nature at times. A part of me feels as if Navid should’ve known about his father’s shady dealings in porn (come on, it’s porn!) from gate, but the other part is saying ‘not so fast’ in the judgmental department. I was a bit peeved when Navid talked down to the high school student/porn star tonight, because she was right in terms of him having no clue about getting a job at the Beverly Center. It’s kind of hard to come off as a humbling and good natured person when your riding around school in a red Lamborghini to the hottest events in the city, and you want to tell someone where they should be working? That argument would easily be shut down by anyone, no matter what their immoral occupation might be. It was a wake up call for our moral compass of the group, but Navid might’ve opened up a whole can of drama by telling his guidance counselor his father’s business. Can Navid make it without the perks he’s had all his life? Well, he better learn how, because his father is going down when the cops get a hold of him.

Another wake up call Navid got tonight was the BS with Adrianna, who probably waited a tad bit too late to realize that Victor needed her more than she needed him. While Ade was busy putting two and two together, Silver and Navid got a bit closer and were disappointed they couldn’t explore how much closer they could get. Too bad Savid’s eventual union was postponed, but did you see Silver’s eyes when Adrianna pulled Navid onto the red carpet? She could’ve taken out the whole block with that look…

Mommie Dearest In Training

Jen, Jen, Jen. I will NEVER for the rest of my life forgive you for putting that baby in some leather jeans! Seriously, who does that?! No. Who MAKES baby leather jeans? They need to be reprimanded just as much as the mothers do…

As for Jen’s parenting skills, I seriously wanted to cry with her as Jacques rolled off the changing station and hit the floor. I felt her pain and, while not a parent yet myself, I understood her fear. Hell, I freeze up every time someone places a newborn in my arms, so I can imagine the parent feeling pretty damn horrible after something like dropping their kid happens on their watch. However, I was shocked as hell that Jen upped and left Ryan with the baby. You could also say Naomi will have to help raise her nephew, but a part of me feels that Jen will eventually be back soon and will want to reclaim the baby. Mark my words.

But Jen, seriously, I’m still pissed about those leather pants on Jacques…

In Other West Beverly News…

Ivy finally managed to get some revenge on Oscar by enlisting Naomi as her partner in crime. While it was a bit refreshing to see Naomi bond with Ivy, I can’t help but feel as if Naomi now has a target on her back with Oscar, who isn’t as innocent as he seems…

So Harry Wilson has moved on and wants a divorce, all while keeping things from Debbie. The writers are really making Harry into a punk and the guy isn’t able to defend himself. Oh, well. I see a potential explanation for Ryan Matthews remaining with show once the kids graduate… hook up with one of their moms.

And the Grey’s Anatomy voice over experiement? No, sir.

Standard episode, but it was way better than some of the outings from last season…

Thoughts?
