So it only took a couple of episode from this show going from "fair" to awful again. Looks my prediction is coming true about the show being at the same place as it was last season in terms of quality. The only highlight of the episode for me was the Train appearance but that's about it.
Ivy & Diego have established their relationship. By the next episode, Diego will be forgotten and some new guy will pop up in her life and they'll have the same issues. I'm only predicting this will happen because this is the exact same thing that happened with the photo guy. This is just pointless and not entertaining to see the same thing happen twice within a span of a couple of episodes.
I bet in the making of the episode, the writers started with the concept of a ridiculous mud fight and built it off from there.
This was just so unbelievably bad, I literally felt stupider after watching the show. And what was with Annie falling in as well? It didn't add anything substantial other than something amusing to look at.
Although I did completely agree with Annie when she said everyone was acting as if they were twelve. Looks like Annie is going to stick with this 'good decisions' thing for a while now.
Adding on to the list of recycled story lines, we've got the new love triangle that probably was the worst disappointment about this episode. Why can't the writers just realize that hooking everyone up together does not make things more interesting, it's just annoying. Does anyone else still think that the Dixon & Adrianna relationship is unfathomable?
The Silver/Liam/Vanessa triangle is exactly like the Navid/Adrianna/Silver triangle, and seems also very familiar to the Liam/Annie/Naomi triangle. The "nothing is going on" at first, and then a romance builds. I'm so tired of it.
The second thing on the list was Dixon getting offered a record contract without his partner. Kind of like how Adrianna had the same thing happen to her, huh? I swear, the writers are drawing at straws here.
And on to the list of disappointments and poor characterization, didn't Naomi say she was done with guys and said that she would focus on her career? Like a couple episodes ago even? Now she's on to some new guy showing she's hardly matured when it comes to this subject.
Adrianna & Naomi not interacting didn't phase me as much until tonight. They were in the same room tonight and didn't say a thing to each other. Are we just supposed to assume that everything is okay between them now? It just doesn't make much sense to me.
Overall, by reading this review, you probably now my feelings about the episode. Just an utter disappointment all around.
