Due to a happy accident of the calendar, today is 9/02/10, and diehard fans are using it as an excuse to celebrate the quintessential '90s drama, Beverly Hills 90210
. It's time we have our own discussion about the show.
For members of a certain generation, 90210 was our first brush with pop culture obsession. Kicking off in '90 on the still-fledgling Fox network, the show was a scrubbed-clean soap opera from the genius mind of Aaron Spelling and Darren Starr about a pair of twins who come from the simple life in Minnesota to the racy world of Beverly Hills
. Enrolled at West Beverly High School, Brandon and Brenda Walsh were the aw-shucks foils to the fast-living teens that soon made up their circle of friends. There was celebrity spawn Steve, party girl Kelly, bad boy Dylan, dim but sweet virgin Donna, striving freshman David, some kid in a cowboy hat who got shot, and Andrea, the brainy editor of the school paper who lived on the wrong side of the tracks and lied about her address to get into the good school
. How boringly earnest.When 90210 started, it was one of the lowest-rated shows on the air. Teenagers slowly started tuning into the show, though, and helped take it from the brink of cancellation to the center of the pop culture universe. ( Collapse )'Beverly Hills, 90210': Where Are They Now?
Tiffani Thiessen, Tori Spelling, Luke Perry and Gang Graduated to Parenthood
By LUCHINA FISHER
Aug. 19, 2010—
Two months after giving birth to her daughter, Tiffani Thiessen returned to work this week on the set of her USA series "White Collar" with newborn Harper Renn and husband Brady Smith in tow.
As one of the last of the "Beverly Hills, 90210" stars to enter parenthood, Thiessen, 36, makes it official: the "90210" graduates have all grown up. Moving on from the show, which ended in 2000 after 10 seasons, has been another matter.
After The CW Network revived the series in 2008 with "90210," three of the original stars, Shannen Doherty, Jennie Garth and Tori Spelling, signed on for guest appearances. As for the other five, no matter where their personal or professional lives take them, they will always be identified with the popular '90s drama about a group of teens living and attending high school in upscale, star-studded Beverly Hills.As Luke Perry, who played brooding bad boy Dylan McKay, once put it: "I'm going to be linked with him until I die, but that's actually just fine. I created Dylan McKay. He's mine."
Here's a look at where they are now:( Collapse )
