  • I’m shocked that 90210 has made it to a hundred (a hundred!!) episodes. Also hearing about the new ABC Family shows makes me mourn Jane by Design even more.

  • What is with 90210 grabbing people Carman Electra and Denise Richards for the 100th episode? That episode is going to be cray cray.

    • Maz Jobrani is Iranian…he looks Iranian and sounds Iranian. There’s nothing even close to Lebanese about him and he does not look like Lebanese people do. This casting is a FAIL when there are tons of good Lebanese-American actors out there…

  • The show Men at Work is so… blah. For one thing, it tries too hard. For another thing, it doesn’t work.
