The original 90210 premiered when I was out of my teens, but I still love it. Great drama, and a great cast round out a fun show. A particular favorite of mine from Season One (which I will always consider the BEST season) is Its Only a Test in which Brenda has a breast cancer scare. That episode still has an impact on me, many years later. Shannen Doherty may be controversial, but she was the best choice to play Brenda Walsh. The whole cast works together to create a great show; no matter what your age.

Throughout the 1990s TV's "Beverly Hills 90210" (that # is a zip code) was a mega-popular program that spoke volumes to millions of unfocused teens all across the American nation, and beyond.

Put plain & simple - The "all-important" message that this series clearly communicated to that decade's lost generation was this - "If you're not young, beautiful & rich - You're nothing!" (And, yes, as you can well-imagine, zillions of gullible teens bought into this empty-headed propaganda, hook, line, and sinker)

Literally overloaded with "rich-kid" stereotypes - "Beverly Hills 90210" absolutely reeked of vicious rivalry, cry-baby angst, and petty personal dramas that had me convinced that one really wasn't any better off coming from a wealthy family, at all.

I cannot believe that this super-shallow series of pretty boys and girls actually ran for 10 seasons. 'Cause watching these 21 episodes from Season One was certainly more than I could stand.

From Minnesota to Beverly Hills, teenage twins Brenda and Brandon Walsh experience major culture shock as they adapt to the glitzy Californian life. Thrown into one of the best high schools in town, the two rub shoulders with the children of the rich and famous. There's Kelly, a material girl whose single mom can best be described as an alcoholic cougar, and Steve, a valid horndog whose life is shattered when he learns the truth about his family on his eighteenth birthday. Then, there's Donna who loves drama and glamour and Dylan who lets his heart shine past his bad-boy exterior. Then, there's the less snobby kids on the margin, like Andrea, the clever "geographically undesirable" school paper editor who buses herself across town to get the best education, and David, a geeky and girl-crazy freshman who tries to elevate himself in the eyes of the more popular freshmen. Out of their element, the twins must slowly adjust to their new setting, including its wild and crazy rich kids. Broaching a new life lesson per episode, BEVERLY HILLS, 90210 is a great guilty pleasure worth the watch at least once. For anyone who can handle the cheesy nineties appeal of high school melodrama, I'd recommend it.

I really like Beverly Hills 90210 because is interesting and funny. The weird thing is that I'm a 21th century kid. I've seen all the seasons 5. They are all great but the best are 1,2,3,4 and when i will watch the 5th season i will compare it too.
