When the show 90210 came out, the first thing that came to my mind was "Oh no, why are they still churning out teen flicks with the same old recipes? Like can't people come up with original ideas anymore these days?"
So imagine my shock, horror and complete amazement to discover last night that a lady in her early fifties was relentless in me switching tv channels because she watches, no wait, follows the show. The said woman is my mother!!! OMG. And she can tell me all the names of the characters, their relationships with one another and the plot. Fulamak, impressive...
I think my eyes popped out of the sockets, rolled on the carpet as I launched into a semi-speech about such shows and how of all people in the world (she despises the tv, never wanting us to become tv addicts when i was growing up), she watches 90210.
I'm gonna *pengsan* if i ever hear even whispers of her vaguely watching the L Word.
