 There really is nothing like the original. Something about the freshness and uniqueness of something the first time around makes it great. So, when I heard they were doing a remake of Beverly Hills 90210, I shook my head in disbelief. How could they even attempt to redosomething so masterful and iconic the first time around? Sure, they brought back a few of theinitial cast members, but it couldn¶t possibly be as good as the 90s version we all loved so dearly.I gave the new season a chance, and couldn¶t bear to keep watching. There weren¶t any ripped jeans, no baggy pants, no jean jackets, no flannels around the waist--no nostalgia at all.So, it brings me great joy to reminisce on the crème de la crème that was the inceptive 90210. Itwas called Beverly Hills 90210, but it didn¶t take long for the fan base to shorten that to the mostfamous zip code to date²90210²when referencing the recap of an episode in the lunch line atschool. The phenomena that was 90210 brought us the Beverly Brood, that consisted of Brandon,Brenda, Kelly, Steve, Andrea, Dylan, David and Donna.Brandon was the ³MAN-don.´ The guy was slick and suave with the West Beverly babes. Hishair was styled with such impeccable force and mousse that it could withstand driving around inhis yellow mustang with the top down. Brenda....oh Brenda. Brenda was the twin sister of Brandon, yet in real life, Priestley and Doherty thought that incest was best, and put the ratings tothe test. They dated off the air for most of the first season, but audiences didn¶t seem to mind, asthe show continued to rule the school. Her character on the show, however, inevitably fell headover heels for Dylan (Luke Perry) and who could blame her? The guy had the sideburns of theGods. They were so incredibly even that carpenters rented him out to verify their house frameswere level. I tried to do the sideburns thing, but all I got facial hair-wise was a pencil thinmoustache that was more creepy than cool. Steve was the chia-headed wing man. Typicallycausing trouble and doing anything to impress the ladies, Steve gave the show that sleezy, yetstylin¶ guy that you couldn¶t help but like. Donna and David were like that annoying couple youalways saw holding hands and hugging by their locker. Except these two were the extreme --drugs, sex and a rockin¶ deejay made these two a train wreck waiting to happen. Kelly was theever-morphing character, who went through everything from cults to cocaine. Apparently itworked, because she was one of the few that remained on the show for the full 10 seasons. Last, but certainly, okay, probably least, was Andrea. I think she was there to show high school girlsthat you can get a guy like Brandon. Unfortunately, he would have to be on ecstasy to like you inreturn. Plus, on the first season, she played a high schooler, when in actuality, she was 29 yearsold. So, I give her credit for being able to pull that off.The show was monumental in the 90s and became a hit for high schoolers everywhere.Remember kids, even if you get wasted at prom, you can still have your friends rally behind you
