  • Just another washed up celebrity vehicle. Please Cable suits, please stop it!

    I watched this a few times on rainy Sunday afternoons, but Im still not sure why.



    Tori is pretty weird looking - she looks like a space alien. She resembles ET as her eyes are too far apart. She had a decent body, but I just could never get past her face. The only reason she ever got anywhere was because her daddy was Aaron Spelling. She is a self absorbed rich girl who has never done anything of substance. The only reason she was on 90210 was... her daddy. Tori isnt as goofy as, say Britney Spears, but shes close. The show did have 1 good point, it shows how disfunctional alot of Hollywood celebrities and their families are.moreless
  • Really funny

    9.1
    I really enjoyed this show. It is really refreshing to see someone take the mickey out of themselves the way she does. So many people take themselves to serious now days and I liked the fact that she just didn\'t make fun of herself, she made fun of her whole life and just had a laugh at it. The writing is witty and sharp. I love the fact that she plays herself and her friends are so over the top. It makes L.A. look ao fake the way it really is. I give it two thumbs up. Way to go Donna!moreless

    Sublime, perfect casting, especially Kiki. Even people who can't stand Tori love this show. It's such a shame that VH1 has suspended or cancelled it. The situations, the characters, the places they visit, the awkward situations they find themselves in are so quintessentially West Side L.A., and when you think about it, very few television shows do L.A.--that is everyday L.A.--much justice. I particularly enjoy the tension between Tori and her mother, Kiki. I suppose it's quite exaggerated for comedic effect, but so captures a particular type of difficult relationship between mother and daughter that is not so uncommon, at least among people I know.moreless
  • This show is...ummm...mmm..ugghh..

    ...bad.

    I tried many things to make this show better. Here are some examples:

    *Stabbed my feet with needles.

    *Ripped out my finger nails with my teeth.

    *Shoved a spoon down my throat.

    *Imagined Tori's voice was replaced with Astro's voice.

    *Poured honey on my body and then released the red ants.

    *Burned my nose hair with a hot ice pick.

    *Whacked my hand with a hammer over and over again until I went blind.

    *Spent my time dreaming of Jeanie.

    *Putting my face on a George Forman Grill.

    *Putting one of those strange sand beetle things from Star Trek 2 in my ear. (Let me tell those are hard to find)

    Of all these, the only thing that helped make the show better was unplugging the TV. Go figure.



    P.S I don't like this show.moreless
  • I watched an episode Sunday, and I felt my IQ drop 50 points.

    1.0
    I have some questions. Okay, I have many questions. Number one is: why would people waste their time watching this? Why would someone even think of watching this? Why would somebody take their time to make this show? What the heck was Tori Spelling thinking?



    If she thinks she can act she needs to get her brian checked. Whoever agreed to help her make this poor excuse of a comedy show needs to have their brain checked as well.



    The show is not funny, in fact it is very far from funny. The whole entire show is just plain stupid. Enough said.moreless
  • THANKSGIVING IS HERE, SO COUNTERACT THE LAZY EFFECTS OF YOUR TURKEY DINNER WITH LAUGHS FROM THE EVER-POPULAR SEINFELD OR HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER. SIT DOWN WITH THE SECOND SEASON OF DR. KATZ, PROFESSIONAL THERAPIST, OR GET THE ADRENALINE PUMPING WITH THE COMPLETE SERIES OF ALIAS. IF BIG-SCREEN SENSATION BORAT HAS WON YOU OVER, YOU WON'T WANT TO MISS THE COMPLETE SERIES OF DA ALI G SHOW FOR MORE OF SACHA BARON COHEN'S SINGULAR STYLE OF HILARITY.
