    I honestly think this is the possible way to do a reboot/revival, especially considering the grievances that TNTDallas, CW90210, CWMelrose and nuDynasty has gotten. This is the most brilliant show on air right now!

    I really enjoyed the first episode. They really don't hold back when it comes to satirising their real lives, particularly Tori & her money troubles. It's a really fresh way of rebooting the show although I would've watched it anyway, if they'd done a straight continuation following the characters lives.

    They paid respects to Luke during the entire episode, but damn, if the last scene didn't tear me up - just a bit. A little bit because my heart is black so I didn't cry or anything. Just a slight sniffle and then I was ok.

    I was wondering how they were going to handle that. But I guess the result would be the same, no matter how.
    So...this is both fiction and reality? Like, they're playing themselves?

    Basically, Tori's trying to get a reboot done and that's the plot.

    But that's the fictional part, right?

    The entire show is fictional.

    Tori's broke and she's run out of options for reality show ideas. It makes sense when you watch it, really!

    I think it's a great concept, I'd love to watch it.

    p.s. does this mean she's not going to be NuAlexis 3?:(

    It's not Tori's fault that she lacks basic life skills - I mean, she's not normal! She can't function in a normal enviroment - it's like letting a zoo animal back into the wild!

    Really?

    I was standing up for you!

    Well, please stop.

    The show is sort of like Episodes with Matt LeBlanc, a fictional version of reality. It's clever and I laughed a number of times in the first episode. I'm excited to watch more.

    The ratings for this is hilarious - the debut episode got 1.5 in the A18-49 demographic; which is amazing. However, if you break it down it only got a 0.4 in the A18-34 demo. But then a 1.9 in the 25-52 demo.

    Should we guess that the viewers of this just might be, I don't know, somewhere in the 35-49 demographic?

    Also, it's hilarious to listen to any interview Jennie and Tori does to promote this - Jeeebuzz, Jennie has the worst memory ever; she does hate the storyline with Kelly getting burnt because she had to wear burn make-up until one day she didn't lol.

    I just watched the first episode tonight and I LOVE IT! :spinning:

    It's definitely a parady take on their lives. They are playing themselves but they are not themselves. For instance in another reunion I saw Jennie Garth was really shy. In this one she is acting like Kelly Taylor. It's like they want us to believe that she is similar to her character in real life.

    The plot is a bit confusing since the lines between fantasy and fiction is being blurred. Tori seems most accurate to herself in the sense that we see her real life husband and 5 kids, her reality show seems to be cancelled and she is probably strapped for cash. Loved the line "She's like a zoo animal let out of the zoo" :rlol:

    But Jason has kids already.
    Ian also has kids.
    Jennie is married. (not going through a divorce as far as I can see)
    Brian Austin Green is still married to Megan Fox.
    I don't think Gabrielle is a grandma either although she is born in 1961 so she is in her late 50s now.

    Still it's a fascinating take on celebrity life and what it can be like for some people. :D

    I bet some pieces are probably true though, like Brian and Tori's routine before doing takes. I totally buy that, also I think I've read somewhere before that they used to date way back when. So it's possible they are ex's for real.

    Oh and I am the only one left wondering if Jason and Jennie ever hooked up in real life? :confuse:rotf

    None of their spouses are the same as real life, https://tvline.com/2019/08/08/why-bh90210-recast-megan-fox-brian-austin-green-wife/

    I really enjoyed the second ep too :)

    I do feel a bit dumb that I never knew Ian's name was pronounced the way it is. I guess I never watched any interviews or anything to hear people say it.
