Milo's Recap: We kick off with the Inaugural Meeting of East Adams High School 2007 Prom Committee. This fine organization consists of Nikki Wagner (i.e., two-timing Chad's girlfriend), Michelle (Nikki's hawtt friend who wore the yellow bikini at the pool party in Ep6, though she hasn't spoken yet), and Ben (who got the ominous txt msg in Ep2 saying "u r going to kill the prom queen"). The august committee is led by Jill Raymond (aka, Lauren-the-flirt's mom, and assistant to the principal).
Ms. Raymond want this to be the best prom since SHE was prom queen! (circa 1988. whether guns&roses songs will be allowed is yet to be determined). Ms. Raymond asks Ben to call her "Jill" and gives off a very weird mrs.robinson-vibe with Ben, and also congratulations him on his "early acceptance" (to her bedroom?) Ben's next txt msg arrives as he leaves the room: "u need to pay attention to me". Hmmm. Ben then escorts Courtney to "rehearsal" (probably drama club? I thought Ben was on the soccer team too, how can we do BOTH! major plot hole!!!! :-) ) Jill stares at their backs like a lunatic while a little music snip like the crazy end of a Lost episode plays.

You can't get into college anymore if you just play soccer or just do drama. The acceptance rate at Columbia was 8.9 percent this year! You have to do soccer, drama and be class president... otherwise it's off to the JC with Daniel.
It looks like the people on MySpace are really struggling to keep the characters straight as well. They think that class-president Ben is the same as soccer-star Chad.
I wonder if the 90-second format is too short for people with poor-facial recognition skills to keep track of what's happening? Or is it a matter of focus? Are some MySpacers unable to concentrate on this show for 90 seconds at a stretch?
