Okay, here’s the thing…The Wife and I have NOT been watching this season of LOST. Well, we started watching it then there was this whole writer’s strike thing…we got into THE WIRE, BSG, and then Season 4 of BEVERLY HILLS 90210 came out on dvd…
Hold it right there! That’s right, you heard me! We are not watching LOST because we are too busy watching 90210. Don’t act all shocked and judgmental.
First, we are letting the final LOST episodes stack up in our dvr so we can watch them in a big chunk after the season ends…and second, 90210 is one of the greatest shows that has ever been on tee-vee! Yes, I said it..and I fucking mean it, so back off.
Besides, I’ve been kind of cheating with LOST thanks to THE NAKED JUNGLE’S weekly LOST blogs…check ’em out.
Anyway, with all the grief The Wife and I have been getting about 90210 vs. LOST it got us thinking….
Aren’t LOST and 90210 basically the same shows? Seriously…let’s take a look at our cast of characters, shall we?
First up, locations….
THE ISLAND….this is easy….BEVERLY HILLS.
THE HATCH…..THE PEACH PIT
THE BEACH CAMP….WEST BEVERLY HIGH
THE OTHER’S CAMP….THE BEACH HOUSE
Now on to the casts….
(The list is far from complete and maybe even flawed…if you have a better pairing of LOST and 90210 characters, please let me know.)
JACK….BRANDON (smug, self righteous, star)
SAWYER….DYLAN (bad boy to the extreme)
KATE….KELLY (annoying, flawed, love interest)
SAYID….JESSE (torture…pure torture)
CHARLIE….DAVID (punk ass kid)
CLAIRE….DONNA (not the sharpest knife in the drawer)
JULIET….BRENDA (pain in the ass bitch)
LOCKE….STEVE (always up to trouble…and a Mr. Canacorn favorite on both shows)
ANNA LUCIA….VALERIE (just dropping in to cause some trouble)
MICHAEL….MRS. TEASLEY (uh, you know…concerned about kids)
WALT….DESHAUN (okay, it’s hard to find black people on 90210)
SUN….CINDY WALSH (kind of there…no one really cares about your storyline)
JIN….JIM WALSH (see above)
HURLEY….ANDREA (fatty, fatty, 2×4, can’t fit through the kitchen door)
VINCENT….ROCKY II (dogs)
SMOKE MONSTER….EMILY VALENTINE (scary and mysterious)
BEN….NAT (THE MAN, THE MYTH…JOE E. TATA!) (the real stars of the shows)
So, we were stumped on a few characters…give us a break, it’s early and the pot of coffee is only half empty…but you can help! Just comment below and let’s get this list revised and completed!
