Sweet Valley High TV Series -- Season 1, Episode 9: Coma


And yes, I realise that this is my second post in as many days, but I've come to realise that the TV show recaps are far less time-consuming, and they're also a little addictive. Okay, back to the recap.

If you're anything like me, I'm sure you realise that there are a number of things that go on in the Sweet Valley books you literally CANNOT make a TV series without mentioning. At least one dead boyfriend, Heriocally Deaf Regina (still waiting on that one...) and, of course, the personality-altering motorbike accident that left Elizabeth in a very non-Elizabeth state of mind. Nine episodes into the first season, and we're there. To be honest, this is actually a pretty shit episode. The acting's all over the place, the tension is kind-of nonexistent, but as you can tell from everything I've been able to tag, it's Sweet Valley just as we love it. And oh yeah, I've included screencaps, because sometimes my descriptions of the absurdity going on in front of me just won't do. Here's your first, for viewing pleasure:
