    Boy, I’m glad you said lackluster.  The last 2 season finales (can’t even recall the 3rd) of 90210 have been dreadful.  Herein lies the problem with this show:  It is supposed to be directed at young people–who demand instant gratification, excitement, BIG everything…and 90210 delivers zip.  Yeah, nice scene with Ade getting exposed…but beyond that, what was “compelling” or worthy of any viewer giving the show a 2nd-thought over the summer.

    This has to change in Season 4.  Hopefully the new showrunners and new CW chief realize that.  They’re got a snoozefest leading off each week, when it should be a sizzling, scandalous soap. 

  • I’m saving my 90210 post-mortem for later in the week after all the upfront madness, but to nutshell it: Clearly exiting showrunner Rebecca Sinclair phoned it in.
