A widower whose book about coping with loss turns him into a best-selling self-help guru, falls for the hotel florist where his seminar is given, only to learn that he hasn't yet truly confronted his wife's passing.

Look, David, we're putting out this issue with a tribute to Scott.
Why? So people can glance at it and then throw it in the garbage?
No, so people can get some idea about who he was.
Look, he was a jerk, okay? He was a jerk who blew himself away, that's who he was. You don't know. You left early. You missed out on the fun part when he picked up a loaded gun and twirled it around like he was Wyatt Earp. You weren't there to see him goof up and bleed all over his mom's Persian rug.

Seasons 1-4: The best; 5-8 Entertaining; 9-10 Horrible
I remember the first time I watched 90210. It was in early 1991, and I was in fifth grade. Brenda and Brandon were going to a party at Donna's and Steve spiked Brandon's drink which culminated into a shocking turn of events as good-guy Brandon was arrested for driving drunk. I tuned in every week after that, and it had become my favorite TV Show, next to the Simpsons.
I caught up on season 1 during the FOX re-runs in the summer and in syndication. Season 2 was great, but seasons 3 and 4 were absolutely the best 90210 ever was. The Kelly/Dylan/Brenda triangle was awesome! Brenda was a great character, and the show was not the same without Shannen Doherty, but the show was still good after she left. Val was a great addition to the cast. I enjoyed seasons 5-8. In my opinion, the May 1998 finale in which Kelly and Brandon were going to get married but called it off should have been the final episode, except they would have actually gotten married. I started college when season 9 began and decided to keep watching it. However after Brandon and Val left, there was no point. The show lost its luster. I occasionally tuned in to see what was going on, but I laughed at it because this was not the 90210 that had once been so great.
As much as I loved it once, it shouldn't have continued beyond season 8. I tuned in for the final episode, and I didn't even slightly enjoy it. It was poorly written. Yes, some former cast members came back, but none of the Walshes did. What I would have loved would be for all of the Walshes to come back and or everyone to reminisce about old times before Donna and David's wedding. And Brandon and Kelly would join them in a double wedding, and they would all live happily ever after. But you can't have everything. I will treasure seasons 1-8, and pretend that it didn't go on beyond that.
My favorite episode? It aired in January of 1993 when Kelly and Dylan were in the pool and he chose her, and they finally told Brenda the truth about the summer when they were together. Greatest moment of the show.
