The Eclectic Corner #2: 90210

The Eclectic Corner is a new feature on The Left-Handed Book Lover in which I talk about basically anything I want. A whole variety of topics! This is kinda like my chance to talk about non-bookish things. I came up with this idea because I really wanted to incorporate my love of TV shows and music somehow. This gives me a chance to connect with other readers and bloggers beyond similar taste in books.

This week's topic is the TV show that I have been addicted to lately, 90210 (the new one)!

Okay y'all, I am way way WAYYY too obsessed with this show. I finished at least the last 3.5 seasons in a week, and I just have so many feelings and I need to talk to people about them. So if you watch this show, please discuss with me! I don't have any friends in my non-blog life who have watched this show, so I'm relying on you people. Just a warning, though, there are going to be super major spoilers.

To kick off this discussion, I'm going to discuss (in detail) my feelings on the characters.

I like Annie, I do, but I don't know that I have a lot to say about her. For some reason, she just wasn't my favorite, but I was still rooting for her SO HARD. She was half of my favorite ship in this show (which I'll talk about more later), and she grew a lot over the course of the show. I wasn't really a fan of her for that brief period of time she went crazy, but I totally understand why she did. She picked herself up, though, and turned out to be a pretty good girl who had made some really big mistakes.

I liked Dixon at first, but as the series progressed, I liked him less and less. I thought he was mostly just a giant whinebag. In my opinion, he didn't have a whole lot of depth.

Naomi turned out to be one of my favorite characters! She wasn't a particularly wonderful human being, but she owned it! It was impossible not to enjoy her character. She grew so much by the end of the show. I was on her side pretty much every step of the way after like the second season.

OH MY GOSH Adrianna is literally my lease favorite character on the show. She was a horrible person, but she didn't even freaking realize it. I am so pissed off that she got her happy ending. Any time anything good happened to her, I got angry and I screamed at my TV because she didn't deserve happiness.

I liked Silver a lot by the end of the show. She wasn't necessarily my favorite, but I still respected her character and wanted the best for her. I am so sad that she got really screwed over in the end. They left her in an extremely dark place and it broke my heart for her. She didn't deserve that while Adrianna got every fucking thing she wanted.

I loooved Navid throughout every single season. I thought he was really sweet and he always tried to do the right thing, and it rarely turned out for him. It was definitely a "nice guys finish last" sort of thing for him. I also just think he's adorable. I'm glad he found happiness in the end, but I hate how that happiness came from Adrianna.

His addition to the show is the best thing that ever happened to it. He is my all-time favorite character because I am a sucker for the couldn't-give-a-crap sweetheart. AND LOOK AT DEM ABS. He is actual perfection.

There are a lot of other minor characters, but I don't feel like going into detail on them. I liked Kelly, Mr. Matthews, and Teddy! I didn't particularly care about Ivy. I didn't dislike her, but I didn't like her either. I didn't mind Raj, but his character fell flat to me. It's like he was on the show just to be the guy who has cancer.


Favorite ships: 

Liam & Annie - OMG THEY WERE EVERYTHING. I'm so obsessed with their relationship and the way things ended and gaaahhh.

Navid & Silver - I thought they had a really great relationship, which is of course why it had to come to an end. They were very strong together and had a mature dynamic.

Naomi & Max - I thought they were sooo cute together. They complemented each other so well. He made Naomi a much better person, and she added a little excitement to his life. When they got married, it was everything I ever wanted, and I hate that they had to separate. It broke my heart.

Least favorite ships: 

Liam & anyone who wasn't Annie - I think this one explains itself.

Adrianna & Dixon  - I don't know who thought this was a good idea but they should probably never write anything again because it was horrible.


Favorite season: 3. I felt like everything hit the freaking fan in this one, an there were so many things I never saw coming.

Favorite story lines: 
~ the "Annie is dating a psychotic guy named Jasper" story line - for some reason I just found this so incredibly interesting. He was crazy and it felt like she was never going to escape his influence.

~ Silver discovering she is bipolar - it was like out of nowhere she went insane. I found it really exciting.

~ a teacher raping Naomi - Don't get me wrong, I don't think that kind of thing is cool. It's absolutely awful, but it was an exciting story in this show.

Least favorite story lines: 
~ Liam getting kidnapped by a crazy fan - like, what? Where did that even come from?????

~ Adrianna stealing songs from a dead guy - bitch stop. I probably just hated it because I hate Adrianna.

~ Raj having cancer - I said it earlier, but it really bothered me how Raj was just thrown in there to be the character who has cancer. I feel like we never learn anything about him except that he has cancer.

Please, please, please talk to me about this show. Tell me your opinions on everything. Argue with me!
