Flashback Friday- Beverly Hills, 90210 (1990-2000)

A fish out of water is always a good place to start at the beginning of a story.

For a certain generation,  Beverly Hills, 90210 (1990-2000) is television. Everything the then young audience went through, their fictional counterparts experienced on-screen.

Brenda and Brandon Walsh (Shannen Doherty and Jason Priestley) are teenage twins from the mid-west who have recently moved to Beverley Hills, California. They’re certainly not in Kansas anymore. As the twins integrate into their new community, make friends and grow up, they become the people they were meant to be.

While some of the language, fashion and music may seem a little dated, being a teenager and growing up is a universal tale.

In 2008, 90210 was rebooted, but it did not have the success of its predecessor.

Do I recommend it? The original, I would say yes, for nostalgia’s sake. The second, well I tried, but I could do without.
