A few weeks ago I was home on a Saturday afternoon with the TV on. This rarely happens because for one thing – I’m not often home on a Saturday, and for another – there’s nothing on Saturday’s that I want to watch. Of course this takes into account the fact that I had completely forgotten about SoapNet’s “Breakfast in Bed” which is a marathon of 90210 repeats for a better part of the day.
I got sucked in RIGHT at the good stuff – which is Dylan and Kelly (hisssss!!) telling Brenda they’re an item and her bitching, “I hate you both! Never talk to me again!!” Now this is just a Classic 90210 moment and so I tweeted it to the fabulous Go Fug Yourself Girls who are themselves massive fans of BevNiner and got I even got a tweet reply from GFY Jessica!! Ok, so it was just a “Yeah!!” but still, that’s kinda awesome.
Then of course, Dylan’s dad blows up and he literally embraces his wounded Inner Child at the funeral (why is this not on YouTube??!!) It is all kinds of Cheesy Teen Drama greatness at it’s very best. And it reminded me how much I loved this VF cover:
SIGH – OH DYLAN!!!!
See, I don’t just do contemporary Shirtless Men – I go 90’s Old School too 😉
A few nights ago I watched a much older Luke Perry in the Jason Priestley (Brandon ‘n’ Dylan 4Evah!) directed Goodnight for Justice, which was a pretty predictable Western in which Luke plays a hard-drinkin’, horse-ridin’, vengeance seekin’, justice servin’ Judge in the Ye Olde West. Oh Coy Luther Perry III – I still Heart You – even with lines on your face and a scruffy beard. But we will always have this picture!
