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.Written by

Despite being a soap opera, and with it the need to couple and uncouple as many people as possible, an enduring plot thread was how Donna Martin stayed a virgin for years after all of her friends had all hooked up with each other. The reason was not to present a positive view of abstinence or anything like that, but because the executive producer of the show was Aaron Spelling, and Donna Martin was played by his daughter, Tori Spelling. He didn't want to see his daughter having sex, even pretend sex. Of course, when Donna finally did copulate with David Silver, it was event television. See more »

David are you okay?

Listen David do yourself a favor, do us all a favor, the next time somebody asks you how you're feeling tell them.
You can be honest with us. We'll still be your friends.

During the original run and earlier syndication airings, the show featured a lot of music from up to the time the episode takes place. However, due to issues with rights regarding the songs, all DVD and Hulu versions change the majority of the original soundtrack with generic replacements. There are also episodes with scenes edited out that would mention certain songs or music artists. It is not known if there will ever be a future release that retains the original music with unedited episodes. See more »
I admit I haven't watched this show for years, so am going on memory here. I watched every episode of Seasons 1-5. When the quality took a nosedive after Season 4 (but Andrea was still around) I started watched it less and less. From what I gathered the plotlines just got more and more ridiculous. The new main actors were all plain like vanilla, like Vincent Young, Jamie Walters, Lindsay Price, Vanessa Marcil, etc. None of the new replacements excited me at all. (Daniel Cosgrove was not bad).
But, in terms of pure gold, the Brenda years, love or hate the actress, Seasons 1-4, were the best. Season 5 clocked in some golden moments too although I hated what happened to Andrea's character, going from brainy nerd to reluctant mother. After that I wouldn't watch anything as a repeat or catch up on what I missed.
