Originally based around the lives of a group of high school students living in the wealthy Beverly Hills neighborhood, then later moving on to their college days as they got older. The kids become friends and enemies, fall in and out of love, and go through an endless series of crises as this small group somehow becomes personally involved in every newsworthy social issue from alcoholism to South African apartheid to pregnancy to AIDS.

Brandon's car nicknamed the 'Mondale' was named after Walter Mondale. Mondale was Minnesota's senior U.S. Senator during the late 1970's and early 1980's, and was chosen by the Democratic Party to run for President in 1984, only to suffer a brutal landslide defeat to incumbent Republican President Ronald Reagan.

I practically grew up in Beverly Hills. When 90210 first aired in 1990, I was 2 years old. I watched the first episode together with an older brother, and I was hooked. I really liked the "Brenda-years". She show became rather weird when Val came to live with the Walshes. The original cast was the best, IMO.
The show should've ended with the gang's college graduation in 1997.
Or, when Brandon left. It always seemed that Brandon and Brenda were the "main" characters of the show, considering that the show started with the Walshes moving from Minnesota to LA.
The last episode was sort of a dissapointment. It was a very bad ending for *the* show of the 90's. Dylan should've stucked with Brenda, they were great together, and Brandon should've married Kelly. David and Donna were the only "good couple" who got together in the end.
Even though I didn't like the show in the very end, I watched it because I had very fond memories from the early 90's, and I wanted to see how Aaron Spelling ended the show. But, when I think of 90210, I only think of their high school years. For me, Beverly Hills will always be a fond childhood memory.
