Fun times this week. You know what a 90210 nerd I am. So what better people to have on than two of the best podcasters out there who cover the show extensively, and that’s Tara Ariano & Sarah D. Bunting of the “Again With This” podcast. If you’ve never heard of it, you’re missing out. Give it a listen. They cover EVERY episode ever of “Beverly Hills 90210” with audio clips and their commentary included throughout. Very funny stuff. When I was on my 90210 binge during December, there were definitely a few episodes that I watched, where immediately afterwards, I’d pull up their podcast to see what they had to say. Yes, I recorded a podcast with them back in January that I accidentally deleted, but with the untimely passing of Luke Perry two weeks ago, it’s almost like this ended up working out better since it gave us a chance to reflect on his life and his career with the show. Also, because last night’s “Temptation Island” only had finality to one of the four couples, figured we’d push Kaci back to next week to where we can cover everything. Because you will know everything next week. That will be quite an interesting podcast to say the least. As always, if you’d like to respond to the interview, please include Tara & Sarah’s Twitter handles (@TaraAriano & @TomatoNation) in your replies. A fun trip back to the 90’s today. Hope you enjoy it.

Also, Nell Kalter’s episode 10 recap of “Temptation Island” is now up as well. Told you it was going to end with a cliffhanger on John & Kady. Just wait til next week. We get resolution on the three remaining couples, and updates on where all of them are at today. I’m telling you, next week is gut wrenching. It’s one thing to suspect what you think is coming. It’s another thing to watch it play out. It. Is. Brutal. You’ve been warned. Next week’s podcast should be interesting. In an exclusive clip of next week’s episode, you can clearly see how well things are going for Evan and Kaci at their final bonfire:
