DOUBLE DOWN: 5.0 out of 5 stars

Sid loves the triumphant return of Brandon Walsh, December 9, 2007

When we last saw Brandon Walsh he was leaving Southern California to pursue a writing career with the Boston Globe. Obviously the Globe doesn't know talent when it sees it because now the cameras are following around Brandon and his buddies on their adventures. The crew from West Beverly is no longer around. We will miss you Steve, Dylan, and Mr. Walsh. But, now Brandon is actually cool. He is a gambling, heavy-drinking ladies man instead of the goody-two-shoes fruit he was in his younger years. He and his buddies are a versatile group. You have Brandon, his buddy Mike, a degenerate gambler who never won, Cory the Jersey Jinx, and Dangalo, the sissy of the group who falls for a trannie and tells him/her he loves it on the first date.

So, the guys are looking for some direction in life. They decide to put all their energy into getting money together to open a sports bar. This way, they can continue their drinking/gambling/womanizing but profit from it. See, they're geniuses. Sid won't spoil the ending or too much of the plot because it is highly recommended. So, take it from Sid, see Double Down. It's an Elf classic.
