Did you watch 90210 Tuesday night with your teen? Or maybe they watched it without you. If they watched it alone, you missed a great opportunity. I have mentioned before I will be providing some parent viewer guides to some of the teen drama’s this TV season because I think that watching TV with your kids can be one of the best opportunities to start discussions and gauge their opinions on important issues in their lives.
Before I give you some discussion points on the new 90210, let me point out a few of my observations:
-Um, hello product placement for Macbook Air and Pepsi. Could they be anymore obvious?
-The girls are ridiculously, ridiculously, skeletal skinny. We were watching last night and were hurting at how skinny their bodies were and huge their heads were.
-No one drops as many books in real life for the “oops, you dropped this effect.”
-During their lunch period, the main character was eating a side salad and a Dr Pepper while her friend had a coffee for lunch.
