People are going crazy – or as one may say, “off the rails” – so let’s see if anyone gets stabby. Or plays with a gun and accidentally shoots themselves in the belly, setting into motion the ascent of Brian Austen Green. Dear Lord, let’s hope it is not number two.

This week, Silver goes full bore loopy, and Adrianna realizes she may not be terrible at this kid thing. Plus, Brandon is back… just behind the camera. Tease!

After a long, long time away (including, evidently, two episodes my DVR didn’t get), everyone’s favorite zip code is reopened for business in episode 17, “Life’s a Drag”.

This week, Naomi tries to snake her way into new guy Liam’s life, Silver gets carried away with looooooooove, and Hip Teacher Ryan finds himself in another awkward spot. Or so the previews would lead us to believe. Let’s see, shall we? (more…)

Last week, the return of 90210 had teen pregnancy, theft, illegitimate children who were not actually legitimate children, and the promise of someone passing out in chemistry class, making West Beverly High very similar to rural Iowa. This week, secrets will be revealed and boyfriends get mad when their girlfriends are knocked up by someone else… also similar to rural Iowa. And everywhere else in the world.

After returning to Everyone’s Favorite Zip Code (Copyright, All Rights Reserved by The CW’s Evilly Deceptive Promo Guy) in September, we’ve been away for about a month. A re-return post-holidays should find a new wave of drama, right?

Let’s address this right away:

  • Yes, I am a man.
  • Yes, in the spirit of Mike Gundy, I am 31 years old.
  • Yes, I am straight.
  • Yes, I am addicted to the shows of the WB… er, the CW.

The big new show for the CW this season is 90210, touted as a return to everyone’s favorite zip code. I kept meaning to start this in the fall, but schedule conflicts prevented it. With those cleared, and the show returning on Tuesday, let’s get up to speed.

When we last left our intrepid fish out of water –

  • The crazy WomanChild left, but didn’t go without a temper tantrum that should keep her from being picked up in bars for months.
  • The Religious Girls were hitting on everything in the bars
  • Krista with a K sat pretty, encouraging my case of her as a favorite… though saying the country was kind of boring won’t help her in the long run.
  • Stacey wouldn’t shut up.  Maybe she got a concussion when she hit her head… and the fun is underway as the girls start to backstab.

Solo on the Big Brown Couch – where I try to keep from taking up residence – away we go, after the jump.

Hi-ho the derry-o, here’s what we know:

  • Strapping farmer lad Matt lives small country town life and wants a wife.
  • Said small country town is actually only twenty-nine miles from the St. Louis Arch – so not quite as remote as The CW wants us to believe.
  • Several of the vying females must either be very dull or not last long, because the first week focused on only half the group. The rest were background actors.
  • Josie, who may be a man, should not live anywhere there is not a doorman or where there may be minorities. She also thinks she is an eleven.
  • Christa earned the first personal date, Krista is this reviewers favorite, and Kanisha got to sit pretty by being scrappy and catching the most chickens. Yeah – I used scrappy to describe a non-white person. Sports journalists everywhere just died inside.

Mrs.JB* joins me on the Big Brown Couch again to make snarkastic comments and tell me all the things the commercials make her want to buy after the jump.

Ladies and gentlemen, I am JB* and I will be your guide for the next several weeks as we walk down the path towards what producers surely hope may lead to the CMT Reality Series, “My Big Redneck Wedding”. Joining me on the Big Brown Couch is Mrs.JB*, who will be adding scathing catty commentary along the way.

The premise of the show is your basic romantic comedy fare –
1. Allegedly hunky farmer (who looks like Christopher Titus with bigger ears) lives in small town (Portage Des Sioux, Missouri)
2. Titus wants to marry, but darn, there’s just no good catches here in this small town
3. Enter the fish out of water in the form of ten city girls on the farm
4. Oh, the hilarity ensues. Look at the princess get dirty! Hear her whine! See them kiss!
5. Profit!
