'NYC Prep': Party down


"NYC Prep" is ready to party this week, with the teens attending not one but two drama-filled soirees that managed to hold my attention for the full hour. It's a miracle!


Pre-parties, Camille goes to a gallery with Sebastian. It starts as a simple (and obviously producer arranged) afternoon, but quickly devolves into a disaster when they compare notes about their love lives, or lack thereof. Man, high schoolers are vicious. Camille is more concerned about her upcoming Harvard visit, however. She, Kelli and Maite meet with the most horrible Harvard faculty member who proceeds to insult them all and act generally superior. Ew. Thank goodness their student tour guides seemed a bit less pretentious.


Jessie is still raging over PC's new unsavory friends and the general downward spiral of his life. Kat tells Jessie to let PC fail, but Jessie basically says she just needs to stop being friends with him for good because watching him fail will be too difficult. Yawn. Jessie, please listen to Kat. She might be the most sensible person on this show. Later, Jessie works on her Operation Smile event.


Eventually, pretty much the entire cast ends up at the NYC equivalent of a house party (except it takes place in a posh restaurant instead, because houses are so 2007). PC tries to engage Cole and Taylor in a conversation about last week's fashion show, but Cole and his friends don't play along and end up being quite rude to PC, driving him away. Next, the charming Cole confronts Sebastian about why he doesn't want to be friends with Taylor. THEN Cole ditches Taylor to go talk to his ex-girlfriend Deniz! And then forces them to have an awkward "let's all just get along" talk when they weren't even fighting to begin with! Cole is a prince, you guys.
