90210 Beginnings…

Was my favourite ZIP CODE really this boring 16 years ago? That’s pretty much what I’m asking myself as I skim through the first few episode EVER of BEVERLY HILLS 90210

If you’ve been an avid reader of theTVaddict.com (and who isn’t?), you’ll recall my excitement when TVTROPOLIS.ca announced that they’d be airing 90210 from the beginning (starting last Thursday June 2). Right away, I ensured that my PVR would record each and every episode.

Yet after five episodes, all I’m wondering is when does this show start to turn into the 90210 I remember and loved? So far the show has been way too preachy, almost 7th Heavenesque in it’s episodic lessons, morals and values. We’ve dealth with drunk driving, high school gossip, drunk surfing, pre-marital sex, and Brenda’s temptation with shoplifting. Thankfully Dylan’s finally made an appearance, so hopefully the action will pick up soon. I’m not sure how much longer I can continue learning valuable high school lessons!

  • Honestly, I think you will start to see the turnaround during the “summer” episodes. Ya know…the Beverly Hills Beach Club…cabana boys….volleyball!!

  • totally agree… I loved the beach club episodes, they’re almost as good as the Saved By The Bell Beach Club episodes – oh how I miss Stacey Kerosee…. I’m sure the show gets better, I’m just impatient!

    Don’t worry… next thursday is Isn’t it Romantic where Brenda and Dylan have their first date… for me it is the first real good of 90210. And when the summer episodes will start and season 2, it is all going to be good.
