Storyline

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.

Trivia

Many changes after the pilot episode: The Walsh house changes to a different building (which explains the odd scenery behind James Eckhouse in the re-shot pilot scenes as it matches the Walsh house used in the remaining 10 years of the series, not the house used only in the pilot.) Also, Brandon's car changes from a Chevy Chevette in the pilot to a different model car in later episodes, referred to as "Mondale". Also, Luke Perry does not appear in the series pilot, he is first featured in the second episode. The building for "The Peach Pit" was also changed after a few episodes in season one. See more »

Goofs

Steve has shaving cream on his ears, but when the camera goes to a different angle the shaving cream is gone, and again when it goes back to the other camera angle, the shaving cream appears again. See more »

Quotes

[Dylan surprises Gina by showing up at a dance]
Gina: Oh, my gosh! What are you... What are you doing here?
Dylan: Well, as you never went to you own prom, I figured when you did, you might wanna go with someone whose voice had dropped.
Gina: Has your voice dropped? I hadn't noticed.

User Reviews

26 February 1999 | by (Long Island , New York) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best shows you will ever see !! I remember the first episode, all of the characters being sophomores in high school, just starting to gain some identity . To me, each character is a fantastic representation of the different situation a teenager faces in life. You've got the girls Kelly , Brenda, Donna (the good girl) , and Andrea (pronounced ON-dreea), and the guys Brandon (won my vote for best looking!) Steve, nerdy David, and soon to follow cool hand Luke - Dylan . The gang is as close as a bunch of high-schoolers are going to get, but let me tell you why to watch . This show crosses everything - drugs, sex , abuse, you name it . The characters bring the topics into their own hands and show how it affects their friends, family and lives. It has actually taught me a few lessons as well . One being that you never know your friends, and don't be surprised by their actions . This show proves that you never really know anyone . 90210 doesn't hold anything back, it shows emotion, and best of all rescues

My favorite episode, well let's just say I don't have just one, because I happened to enjoy all of them, but I will narrow it down if you're looking into checking it out . One episode that you must see is the episode where Dylan's dad dies, I myself was sympathetic to the character . The next best episode was of the 97-98 season, when the gang takes a trip to Hawaii, love is in the air, and everyone for that moment is just happy, but until the end where Kelly is shot .

If you are looking for a reason to quit doing drugs and drinking, check out the episode where David is addicted to speed , or when Kelly's co-dependency leads to her addiction with cocaine. Watch the chain of episodes where Dylan is over his head in drinking . If you are looking for abuse intervention, tune into the episode where Brandon mentors a physically abused boy, or when Donna overcomes her battering boyfriend (ray). If you are looking for some good-old fun episodes , check out the early college ones, when everybody is either pledging a fraternity or a sorority .

I strongly recommend this show to anyone who is interested in a reality based show, that is not focused on just the snobs of Beverly Hills, and is always teaching a different lesson .
