Quick Thought: "90210"

One quick thought about last night's episode of 90210 ("Model Behavior"), as it featured the final appearance (for now anyway) of one Brenda Walsh (a.k.a. Shannen Doherty).

Did anyone else feel that the ending--in which Brenda tearfully deleted Dylan's contact information from her mobile phone--was pretty cheesy, as well as woefully lacking in the drama department to boot?

I wished that she would have instead called Dylan and said something to the effect of "She knows," implying some sort of relationship or secret goings-on between Brenda and Dylan. (Why did he call Brenda instead of Kelly?) Some line of dialogue or action that would have at least opened the door to further developments down the road, or changed the interactions we've seen over the last few weeks between Brenda and Kelly. Having her delete his info was meaningless, especially if Luke Perry won't be appearing on the series and if Brenda won't be returning to BevHills anytime soon.

Of course, as I half-joked to my wife after watching this, I also wished that Brenda would have instead placed a call and said something like, "Move to Phase Two. Kill Kelly Taylor and Ryan Matthews."

But that might just be because I still have Chuck on the brain. And because Ryan is proving to be way too whiny for his own good.

"Move to Phase Two. Kill Kelly Taylor and Ryan Matthews."

Yes, please! Anything to make this show more interesting and put a stop to Matthews' whining and awful hair.

That whole fashion show was bizarre. And, supposedly, it was the photographer's biggest event of the season? Once again, 90210 needs to turn to Gossip Girl to see how it should be done. The fashion show in last week's GG may have been over the top but at least it was interesting!

That would have been awesome. I would also have loved Jack Bristow to drive up next to Brenda and tell her to get in the car if she wanted to live.

I TOTALLY thought she was going to call him and say, "We have to talk" or "Kelly suspects"

That deleting thing was just lame.

Also, is it just me, or...

Do they have different writers writing for Naomi every episode? They have NO idea what to do with her or who she is. Is she the bitch? Is she a sad, misunderstood lovelorn optimist? She changes every week, sometimes scene to scene. I could blame the actress, whom I detested on Nip/Tuck, but I am not even sure it's her fault.

What's Done is Done: The Eternal Struggle Between Good and Evil on the Season Finale of "Lost"

Every story begins with thread. It's up to the storyteller to determine just how much they need to parcel out, what pattern they're making, and when to cut it short and tie it off. With last night's penultimate season finale of Lost ("The Incident, Parts One and Two"), written by Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, we began to see the pattern that Lindelof and Cuse have been designing towards the last five seasons of this serpentine series. And it was only fitting that the two-hour finale, which pushes us on the road to the final season of Lost , should begin with thread, a loom, and a tapestry. Would Jack follow through on his plan to detonate the island and therefore reset their lives aboard Oceanic Flight 815 ? Why did Locke want to kill Jacob? What caused The Incident? What was in the box and just what lies in the shadow of the statue? We got the answers to these in a two-hour season finale that didn't quite pack the same emotional wallop of previous seas

Katie Lee Packs Her Knives: Breaking News from Bravo's "Top Chef"

The android has left the building. Or the test kitchen, anyway. Top Chef 's robotic host Katie Lee Joel, the veritable "Uptown Girl" herself (pictured at left), will NOT be sticking around for a second course of Bravo's hit culinary competition. According to a well-placed insider, Joel will "not be returning" to the show. No reason for her departure was cited. Unfortunately, the perfect replacement for Joel, Top Chef judge and professional chef Tom Colicchio, will not be taking over as the reality series' host (damn!). Instead, the show's producers are currently scouring to find a replacement for Joel. Top Chef 's second season was announced by Bravo last month, but no return date has been set for the series' ten-episode sophomore season. Stay tuned as this story develops. UPDATE (6/27): Bravo has now confirmed the above story .

Me Want Food: Jenna Gets Famously Fat on "30 Rock"

I don't know about you, but I've already ordered my "Me Want Food" t-shirt from the NBC store. Last night's episode of 30 Rock ("Jack Gets in the Game") was, in my opinion, one of the strongest of the series and has officially pushed the zany comedy into the realm of Arrested Development : deftly plotted and intricately layered, with so many jokes piled atop of jokes that it requires several viewings in order to catch them all. While at its heart, 30 Rock is a workplace comedy, it's left that narrow pigeonhole behind to become a witty example of how intelligent and taut humor can work (and flourish) on television... and exist in harmony with hilarious throwaways like the Thriller -inspired Werewolf Bar Mitzvah music video that would have done the AD crew proud. I want Will Arnett to appear on this series whenever possible. His gay exec Devin is hilarious, manipulative, and has an inexplicable weakness for Kenneth the Page, but he claims to have
