Everyone scrambles to get dates for the big annual spring dance. Kelly asks Brandon to the dance, offending Steve who has nobody while Andrea ponders whether or not to go to the dance. At the dance, ...
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

The exterior of Dylan's house changes without him moving. The first outside shots show a white house in a comfortable neighborhood. Later outside shots show a dark wood house set back from the street and down a slight incline. See more »
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 did not watch much of the show when it was originally on TV. Now, about 25 years after it started I decided to watch something that "is 90's" and BH 90210 was the show that right away got into my head.
So I went through all the 10 seasons, now in my 30's and I must say I really enjoyed it. The fact that the actors were older than the characters doesn't bother one at this point anymore, actually it helped. It almost brought the feeling back of me watching the show about the older kids who are already in high school, just like it was back when I was 10 and caught a few episodes.
It is of course very cheesy, yet entertaining. One can see how Aaron Spelling started and set up the formula for the teen dramas that followed Beverly Hills. It is also great to see the 90's go by in their clothes and the things they live through.
I loved their high school years, but I enjoyed the show pretty much until Valerie left. After she was gone it went downhill for me, but by that time the show was almost over.
While Valerie was my favorite female character, David was my favorite guy. He was a sweet kid from the start, although he has done a lot of stupid things during the show. Most characters had their charm. But even though I liked the show pretty much until the end, when it came to the adult time most of the original cast has lost their charm. I liked Kelly at first, but in the final years of the show I couldn't stand her. Steve stopped being fun but an annoying guy who will have a kid. And when Dylan came back he seemed like an annoying parody of himself.
Still, the show is a classic for me. As somebody who once in a while likes to watch some cheesy soap, this was a good entertainment with a great cast that fitted the show very well and will always be the faces that I associate with the 90's pop culture.
