So what do you do if your hit TV show went off the air in 2000, your last studio film was Scary Movie 2, and you've become tabloid fodder and a sure-fire pop culture punchline? If you're plucky Tori Spelling, you go the Fat Actress route and co-create and bravely star in a TV series that takes a self-deprecating look at your life. In an interview with Tori included amongst the ample bonus features, she reveals this series was born out of "years of people laughing at me." Making lemonade out of her lemon of a career, she seems to have taken Robin Williams' maxim to heart: "Joke 'em if they can't take a (blank)." While this is decidedly a fictionalized portrayal, there is, with a bow towards Stephen Colbert, a playful "truthiness" to So NoTORious that will appeal to her fans and even her detractors. There are, at her expense, plastic surgery jokes, eating disorder jokes, and, hitting way close to home, nepotism jokes, as when Tori insists to uber-producer father, Aaron (cleverly heard, but not seen, a la Charlie in Charlie's Angels) that she thinks it best if she gets her own acting jobs, adding, "Unless, of course, you want to buy me a studio... No, daddy, don't do it. I was just kidding."

Through miserable dates, disastrous parties, and career setbacks, So NoTORIous is nearly as cringe-worthy as Curb Your Enthusiasm, although unlike the irascible Larry David, our heart goes out to the hapless Tori, game as she is to somehow right the ship of public perception of her as a "spoiled Beverly Hills princess who's had everything handed to her." "I'm trying to keep a low profile," she complains at one point, and accordingly, the series does not feature many star cameos or appearances by her Beverly Hills 90210 costars. Farrah Fawcett does a nifty turn as herself in the episode "Plucky," and Whoopi Goldberg appears as a psychic in "Cursed" ("You are a wretched, miserable soul," she divines). Making a welcome return to the small screen is Loni Anderson (WKRP in Cincinnati) as Tori's neglectful and self-absorbed mother (which certainly couldn't have helped the well-publicized real-life rift between Tori and her mater). Who knows where Tori's career goes from here? Based on So NoTORIous, there could be a Suddenly Susan in her future! --Donald Liebenson

Product Description

Forget everything you've ever heard about Tori Spelling. OK, maybe not everything. It’s true, her dad is the most successful TV producer of all time and she did spend a decade playing the virginal Donna Martin on his hit show "Beverly Hills 90210." But now that Tori has left that zip code and her parents' mansion behind, she wants the same things we all do: friendship, respect, and love. Used to tabloid scrutiny, Tori navigates life with a self-deprecating sense of humor and the support of a loyal crew of friends she’s know since high school, along with her devoted manager, her beloved nanny, and her ever scrutinizing mother Kiki, the ultimate Beverly Hills housewife.

First thing's first - how many Tori Spelling fans were really out there in the 90's? Just some teenagers who were addicted to Beverly Hills 90210 and probably sent her enough fan mail to suffocate a horse with. But I'd have to say she was one of the least popular members of that cast. She made a safe transition after this show to Lifetime television movies and independent films, but failed to have the bigtime Hollywood career she always wanted. How many fans can you possibly gain with movies like Scary Movie 2, A Friend to Die For, Co-Ed Call Girl, and Mother May I Sleep with Danger?

So, probably the most interesting thing about her was her famous parents and what we could only imagine her life was like - on a megahit TV show about teens that wasn't very good while still experiencing all the same pratfalls as someone slightly more talented on a better show. Then moving onto a truly miserable career in TV obscurity, still being that name everyone knows without a great career to argue her name's worth being on the tip of our tongues. Her career may have just lived in infamy as Scream 2 being the best and brightest spot on her resume.

That is, until 2006, when VH1 debuted her new reality-show-esque sitcom about chaotic distortions upon what must be her actual life. If there's one part Tori could win an award for playing - it's herself. Who could argue with that? Just one thing left to ponder: is the show any good?

I happen to think it's very good.

First of all, the show arrives in a sea of scripted reality-shot shows about pre-teen girls trying to make it in the music industry, snooty twenty-something's (that act like pre-teen girls- even the boys) working at high-fashion magazines, and teenagers just chillin' on the beach.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tori Spelling Is Funny! November 27, 2006
Format:DVD
This season Tori Spelling fans will have two new releases to choose from. Earlier this season Paramount released Beverly Hills 90210 The Complete First Season on DVD. Now her VH-1 original series So Notorious is available on DVD. The DVD release includes the entire series which consists of 10 episodes.

The most surprising thing about So Notorious is just how funny the darn show is. On Beverly Hills 90210, Tori Spelling didn't get to show off her comedic chops. The actress has also starred in a handful of series themed Lifetime movies, so most people didn't know what Tori had to offer comedy wise.

So Notorious can most easily be compared to the Kirstie Alley series Fat Actress. Similar to Fat Actress where Kirstie Alley starred as Kirstie Alley with actors cast as her friends, in So Notorious Tori stars as a fictional character named Tori, with actors playing the roles of her family and friends. In the series, Tori explores post 90210 life which includes dating, friends, family, tabloids and Beverly Hills life.

There are some really funny moments in the series. The guys who want to hook up with her because her father is a famous producer. Some of the greatest scenes in the series include actress Lonnie Anderson who stars as Tori's mother KiKi in the series. Hands down one of the funniest episodes of the series is the episode "Charitable." In this episode, Tori takes a disadvantaged "teen" under her wing. Before she knows it

she is throwing the young girl a huge party. When the "teen" doesn't get her way she threatens to go to the tabloids. Things really come to a head when Tori learns the teen isn't a teen after all, she really is a grown woman.

So Notorious is a cute show. The DVD set includes 9 episodes that aired and a 10th episode that never aired on the network. Special features include episode commentary, deleted scenes, outtakes and cast interviews.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm NOT a fan of 90210 and never was... December 10, 2006
Format:DVD
But I did read some good reviews of this show before it began and decided to program it into my TiVo [product placement-1].

I watched the first episode and was hooked. It's not a reality show. It's based on being a celeb and it's better than Kirstie's on that pioneer pay channel or Lisa K's on the other big pay channel.

This show was actually funny which is rare for a sitcom these days and it had a female lead; another rarity in this new century.

I loved the running gags like the gates to Aaron's Mansion playing the Charlie's Angel's theme or never seeing Aaron but hearing his voice ala-Charlie.

Loni Anderson was the PERFECT choice for Tori's mom and some of quirks were deadly funny. I loved the Christmas room in the mansion.

Why did they make only 9 or 10 eps? Why when I recorded an episode with title "A" did the ep with title "c" show up? and this was during a "marathon". [Not on VH1 but another channel showing it...I forget which one]. So I never saw all 9 eps on regular TV. I think I saw 5 at most.

Now I have the DVD set and I can enjoy it and share a good comedy with friends. [and encourage them to buy their own].

I never liked 90210 but Tori spelling can be funny and make fun of herself while being a good sport about it.

Oh and the limo getting stuck in the drive-thru was truly funny.

5.0 out of 5 stars HIIIIILARIOUS - WHAT a pleasant surprise! December 18, 2006
By MattW
Format:DVD
I had heard great things about this show (critically) and then the last I had heard it was then abruptly cancelled. I have very little history of Tori Spelling's career, 90210, and I don't even have access to VH-1, so I went in with little context and much to my delectation found it to be quite hysterical. The one-liners come fast and furiously and the script is extremely clever, self-effacing, and entirely topical. Tori obviously has a wonderful self-deprecating sense of humour and you're very aware that her character is a very close representation of who she probably really is, which is a good thing because she's very likeable. Spelling has really come into her own with this vehicle, and it's a shame that there won't be more episodes. I've become decidedly fond of her and her eclectic cast of characters. Loni Anderson absolutely deserves an emmy for her turn as Tori's mother "Kiki" - she is simply too funny to be believed - yet utterly believable! Torina - you've made me a fan!
