OK, it’s official. Marisa Meltzer has no life. Yeah, yeah, I know. The debate has gone back and forth over the past few years at a furious pace, but now it’s official. The proof of the pudding is her essay in Slate celebrating the release of the first year of Beverly Hills 90210 on disc. Brandon,* Brenda, Kelly, Steve, Andrea, Donna, Dave, and the ill-fated Scot, they’re all there.
Naturally, being a chick, Marisa can’t resist administering beatdowns to both Tori Spelling and Shannen Doherty, but otherwise she’s all over this 6-DVD box set, like brown on rice, as a vegetarian might say. So it’s official: she has no life.
*A kid from Minnesota named “Brandon” in the nineties? Whoa! Sorry, this show was always a lie.
