S02.E06: Pass, Not Pass

Recommended Posts


One other thing that annoyed me in the Suitor plot line was that he said he wanted a tour of LA from 2 "authentic" California girls.  Ummmm, what?  Brenda grew up in MINNESOTA.  Come on writers.

Sorry to re post but I accidentally dropped this in the visual aids thread.

Brenda's hair looks incredible in this ep. That gif of her and Ohhndrea creaming themselves at the teacher (ew, I just grossed myself out)? I would literally die for hair that silky and shiny. Amaze.

Why does everyone always wear sweaters on the beach in Southern California on this show? I know it's night but does it get that cold? I've never been. Brenda also spent all these summer episodes wearing jeans and long sleeve shirts. Man, the 90's were weird.

Wow, did Jim steal that parking lot move from Jake Ryan? Are he and Brandon going to eat belated birthday cake on top of a table by the light of a million candles while the Thompson Twins take over the soundtrack? Because that's an inappropriately seductive posture for surprising your son WHO WAS ARRESTED FOR DRUNK DRIVING with a new car he completely does not deserve.

Arggh. For some reason Hulu does not have S206 or S208.

We don't get this, we don't get Emily Valentine's introduction, we don't get Scott Scanlon's accidental death, we don't get the gang going to try to meet Color Me Badd, we don't get Brenda and Dylan's Mexican Adventure.

 

What did we do to be deprived of these things???!!

Tough question: Is it TV-illegal to hook up with a character who's underage played by an actress collecting Social Security?

Also, if you keep your eyes on Kelly during the whole "dancing" GIF, she pulls a pretty great eleventh hour WTF side-eye.

Wow, Mr. Souter is SUCH an asshole! I like that Ohndrea stuck up for herself and called him on his outrageously inappropriate behavior even if he didn't hear it, but my god. What a shit barn.

Alas, this is one of those episodes that Hulu skips. What the heck precious and impossible-to-relinquish pop music was in this one that they couldn't afford?

"A Summer Song" by Chad and Jeremy?

I remember LOVING Brenda's hair as the years went on.  Especially when she grew it long.  I was oh so jealous of her perfectly straight hair.  

 

The sweaters and warm clothes kill me.  On this and the Golden Girls.  It's Miami!!! 

 

As a kid I loved Brandon.  It's embarrassing to admit but I'm going with the fact that I was young and didn't know better.  I learned my lesson as the years went on and I love the podcast for continuing to show me the error of my ways.

It's too bad none of the characters on the show (or the writers) was smart enough to remember that you can't legally enter into a contract with a minor, and that if the Walshes had shown up at Simon's with a lawyer, they'd most likely have been able to get Brandon's money back by threatening to sue. On the other hand, why does a 16-year-old need a classic car? I don't give a shit if they're in Beverly Hills. Brandon & "Brinda" aren't real BH kids anyway. Get a fuckin' Toyota. Why do I care so much? Ahhhh!

Again thank you for showing me why it was a good thing that I never watched this show. Though I do wonder...Why do you have klezmer music introducing the podcasts? Just curious.

It's a nod to the Yiddish-y accent we put on our "A-GAIN With This" line reading.

Why did any of us ever think a mock turtleneck was a good idea? And WHY would anyone wear one in LA, in the summer?

Kelly's sweater is amazing and acceptable for cool, possibly breezy beach nights.

"GET YOUR OWN GODDAMN MAN!" /GoodFellas

 

Given the not-so-amicable relationship between Doherty and Carteris, you have to wonder how much of Shannon was in Brenda's slap...

I looked it up and Gabrielle (dob 1/2/1961) and Michael St. Gerarde (dob 1/22/1961) are the same age (30 in 1991). I wonder what she would have been like on Melrose Place instead.

I am glad that Jim told off Brandon about not test driving the Mustang before he bought it.

I am shocked that the drama teacher tried to have a romantic relationship with Andrea.

She was a minor & he was her teacher.

Wasn't that illegal/immoral  in California in the early 1990's ?

Yes, of course it was.  It happened though, just as it happens today.

It's still illegal and immoral...
