9 0 2 1 WOW
OK, I'll admit it - Beverly Hills 90210 (the original) rocked my world. I totally loved it and its sister show Melrose Place. In fact, in college our big night of the week was watching these shows while bingeing on Little C's - there was nothing better in the world than watching all the ridiculously cheesy drama with good friends and cheap, greasy pizza. My family was big into it, as well, which is where it all started for me. My love for the show was true up until the very end - every catfight, breakup, and drug addiction was recorded in the back of my mind. I watched both shows from beginning to end and clamoured for more. My sister still watches them on Soapnet whenever they come on. We can't stop watching them. That being said, I had mixed feelings for the new 90210. Why would I care about a new cast? What would draw me in? How could they improve upon perfection (OK, OK, that was taking it too far, but you know what I mean)? Plus, I'm nearing 100 years old, why do I care to watch a P.S. Yes, I realize I'm talking about these characters as though they're real. So what? Shut up.
