To this day I love this show. I watched it all the way through to the end. One of my favorite story lines was the Kelly becomes a cokehead one. I also really loved Brandon's ex who tried to blow up a float. Any other 90210 fans on DL? What are your favorite episodes or characters?

My friend and I loved The Kelly Becomes A Cokehead Arc. We weren't allowed to hang out with each other for a while because we kept getting into trouble. So, we would call each other on the phone right before 90210 started and watch the show together over the phone.

No, she never admitted to it (even denying it on Howard Stern, I believe), but it's quite apparent when you see her on Saved By The Bell: The College Years where she was flat-chested, and then a year later when they made the Zach and Kelly get married SBTB TV movie, her boobs were noticeably bigger.

And unlike most of the cast, she knew how to say a line without it sounding like she was reciting it.
Claire always just grossed me out. Especially in the beginning, but even later...I just though she was annoying and the fact at you could see up her nostrils didn't help. With all the actors that came and went I have no idea why they kept her on for so long - everyone I know couldn't stand her.

Some of the cast members weren't too old when the show started. Shannen and Jennie were 19 and Tori and Brian were 17. But if you watch the early episodes of the show and then compare today's actors who are in their late teens and early 20s, some look very young compared to how many 20 something actors looked in the 90s.

Kelly was cool in the early seasons, but then quickly became the ultimate victim by the time the cast hit college.
She was addicted to diet pills and nearly died, her classmate Joy was revealed to be her long lost half sister, she was burned in a sorority house fire and one of the other girls burned in the fire was a lesbian who later revealed that she was secretly in love with Kelly After Cosmetic Surgery For Her Burns! While being trapped in the fire, boyfriend Brandon cheated on her with psycho Emily Vakentine, right out of the sanitarium.
She joined the evil Professor Finley ' s New Evolution Cult, was stalked by the campus rapist in Season 5
Her Dylan and Brandon all "traveled back in time" where Dylan realized that Kelly was his soul mate
She chose herself, by turning down Dylan's offer of a trip around the world and Brandon ' s marriage proposal.
She hooked up with cocaine addicted and perennially shirtless artist Colin, who was already cheating on Kelly with a rich married older woman Claudia Van Eyk, played by Mary Crosby of Dallas fame
Kelly eventually became addicted to and was almost raped by her dealer until Brandon saved her
While in rehab, she met Tara, who Kelly became friends with and who moved in with her
Tara eventually became a Single White Female stalker, who killed Kellys pet fish, schemed and destroyed Kellys relationships, threatened to Kill Kellys nemesis Valerie and destroyed her car
She also got her hair cut just like Kellys and tried to seduce Brandon and take over Kellys life as a "lookalike"

Kelly, while on probation from her drug possession arrest the previous season, was working at an AIDS shelter, where she was accidentally injected with a contaminated needle
She thought she had AIDS
She was also shot, went into a coma, woke up only to have amnesia and therefore completely forgetting about her love story with Brandon
New x character Noah helped save Kellys life after he gave her his blood. Kelly than thought that Noah, not Brandon was the love of her love
It took months for Kelly to get her memories back
When she got her memories back, she reunited with Brandon only for him to cheat on her with a scheming, slutty, red haired "sex therapist" named Emma
Emma then started blackmailing Brandon, after he ended their affair, eventually Emma sent Kelly tapes on their love making and conversations!
Kelly broke up with Brandon, again!, only too take him back and finally accept his marriage proposal
However the day of the wedding, Brandon got cold feet and left her at the altar
Next season it was revealed that Kellys nemesis Valerie had written a long letter to Brandon on why he shouldn't marry Kelly
Kelly got a hold of the letter and blamed Valerie for her being left at the altar
Kelly then romanced and became engaged to lawyer Matt Durning, the only problem was that Matt HAD A Secret Wife With A mental illness that he had institualized, that he never mentioned to fiance Kelly
Lauren, Matt's wife, eventually found Matt In Beverly Hills and admitted that she still loved him and that she wouldn't divorce him so he could marry Kelly
Lauren and Matt also discovered a cure for her "brain illness", so Dylan and Kelly flew to Mexico to bring the cure home
The only problem was that Dylan and Kelly slept together, with Dylan cheating on his then girlfriend figure skater from he'll and Donna cousin, later revealed to be her half sister, Gina.
Gina found out and bitch slapped Kelly and wrote SLUT in lipstick on Kelly bathroom mirror
Lauren eventually gave Matt THE divorce, After THE Cure DIDN'T Work after all, and went away to die from her brain disease, leaving Kelly and Matt to get back together, only for Kelly to be raped by scumbag Joe Patch, Joe later found out where Kelly worked and tried to rape her again, but this time Kelly shot and killed his ass in self defense
Kelly was arrested for murder, but it turns out Joe was a client of Matt's, her fiance
Murder charges were dropped after evidence supported Kelly that she killed him in self defense
But she would break up with Matt again, despite the fact that Matt got her murder charges dropped, because she couldn't believe that he would defend a rapist like Joe Patch

He said that a lot of the cast HATED the show at this point and HATED having to do a soap opera week after week, but certain actors stayed with it because that was where the money was.
He also said that the writers had no problem writing "soap opera" but they also tried to make the drama realistic and character driven, but by the time he was leaving the show in Season 7, they had already jumped the shark with their stories and became Melrose Place esque and all plot driven
He said the whole show had become "Who's sleeping with who or cheating on whom this week"

Did anyone else love Dylan's exit storyline in Season 6?
Basically he befriends Toni Marchette, because she's the daughter of the mobster who "killed" his dad, Jack Mckay, back in Season 3
Eventually Dylan falls in love with Toni for real, even though Toni is devastated that Dylan at first only befriended her just to get access to her father
Toni and Dylan confront her mobster father at the Peach Pit (!) Where he reveals that he did have Jack "killed"
Dylan and Toni move in together, with Toni cutting all ties with her father, and the 2 decide to get married
Antonio Marchette, Toni ' s father, hears on the marriage plans, begs Toni not to marry Dylan and that the marriage will be doomed
Toni tells her father that she loves Dylan and if he can't accept that that she wants nothing to do with him anymore
Dylan and Toni get married, but Antonio decides to have Dylan whacked on their wedding day!
But the hit man accidently kills Toni instead
I'll never forget that scene where Dylan runs over to her bullet ridden body screaming to Brandon "look what they've done to her!" In tears.
In Season 10, after Dylan had returned to the show, it was revealed that Dylan's dad Jack DIDN'T die in that mob hit car bomb explosion in Season 3 after all and he was alive and living in the witness protection program for the last 7 years and remarried too!

R238 90210 was always "soapy", but it really went the full blown prime time soap route starting with Season 5.
It was fairly obvious they were trying to keep up with the antics of spin off sensation Melrose Place.
Another of my favorite storylines it during Season 9, when Valerie confesses to David that her molester father didn't kill himself 5 years ago, but that SHE shot and killed him and cleaned up the crime scene to make it look like a suicide
Meanwhile Val's mom Abby (played by Knots Landings Michelle Phillips) comes to town with her new fiance and announces that she's eloping with him to Vegas that weekend
Valerie joins her mom and fiance Carl and the bitch begins seducing and sleeping with Carl, her mom's fiance!
At the wedding after Abby marries Carl, she's all like "Why don't you kiss your stepfather Valerie"?
The look on Valerie ' s face was priceless!
Carl, of course becomes obsessed with Valerie, Abby finds out and confronts her daughter and Valerie also confesses that she killed her father and that he was a bastard child molester and that she hates her Mom, because she knew about the abuse and allowed it to go for years
Abby then bitch slaps Valerie and it's so UNINTENTIONALLY hilarious!

Kelly SWEARS that Valerie knows where Colin is, since Colin naturally started fucking Valerie after Kelly went to rehab and dumped his ass
Valerie tells the police and Kelly that she has no idea where Colin is and Kelly says he may have contacted Claudia Van Eck, the rich married older woman played by Dallas' Mary Crosby of "Who Shot JR" fame, whom Colin was cheating on Kelly with
And then Valerie goes "Oh Claudia I've heard of her wasn't she that OLDER woman who Colin was doing behind your back the entire time that you 2 were together Kelly? How precious! "

Anyway cunt Kelly tells Brandon that in order for her to be happy he only has to do one thing... kick Valerie out!

Remember in the first seeason, when it looked like the Walsh family were gonna move?
Andrea offered to give her virginity to The Bran Man!

Speaking of Andrea, one of the worst storylines was in Season 5 when Andrea, married with a newborn and in medical school, begins having an extramarital affair on Jesse with Peter, the red head doctor, who is also married
They completely destroyed the Andrea character and it was ultra sleazy, with Andrea and Peter doing it in the hospital(!) And cheap motel rooms
There was this big dramatic scene when Andrea tells Peter that she loves him and is prepared to divorce Jesse if it means that they could be together.
And Peter is all like what we have is just sex, I'm not divorcing my wife for you! .Stupid bitch Andrea!
And I seem to recall that storyline going on FOREVER, essentially all 32 episodes of Season 5
I remember watching it and thinking "When are they gonna end this damn thing"?
It's also funny how Andrea didn't even have a single scene with new Season 5 cast members, Claire, Valerie or Ray
It was like the producers knew that it was gonna be her last season

R261 there was also Allison, the lesbian that Kelly was trapped in the sorority house fire with.
She was REALLY burned in the fire, weeks after the fire they showed Alison all bandaged up in the hospital telling Kelly that she misses her
By the season finale it's revealed by Alisons ex that they broke up not only because of the fire, but because Alison was secretly in love with Kelly!
Cue the melodramatic soap music!
Kelly then invites burnt lezzie Alison to her house, but Alison is miraculously beautiful agsin, with no burns on her body!
Must of been a great Doctor that she had
And of course all of 90210 thinks that Kelly is gonna muffins dive with Alison

I always thought that Steve was on the D.L. He sauntered model-perfect, like he was balancing a book on his head, wore the best fashions of all the guys (those tight pants, buttoned-up-to-here silk shirts, half tops and short shorts were to die for!), had mommy issues and always wore his heart on his sleeve.

Well there was that episode in the first or second season where Kelly is dating one of the most popular guys at West Beverly but figures out he is gay. It was a very pro-gay storyline and the guy was played by David Lascher who at the time was SUPER CUTE.
I think Scott was secretly in love with David and it subconsciously led him to be careless with guns.

R295 yes that was ludicrous! And ugh Donna had to choose between Griffin Stone (Casper ' s character) and Ray, she eventually picked Ray
I remember Felice, Donna's excellent bitch mom, tried to break Donna and Ray up by offering poor white trash Ray a nice check if he were to dump her daughter.
Of course Griffin would try to get back at Donna by starting the sorority house fire that nearly killed Kelly, he also set Steve up for the fire, who was arrested
Ray would eventually turn into a woman beater and cheater too!
The HILARIOUS Season 5 finale scene where Ray accuses Donna of sleeping with David and giving her virginity to him, because his back and ending with Ray pushing Uggo down a flight of stairs has to be seen to be believed!

The actress who played Emily, would write episodes for the show in later seasons under an alias name
She was living with and dating Jason Priestley at the time
I believe she also wrote some episodes of Melrose under an alias as well.
Emily was such a crazy psycho character, especially when she drugged Brandon and slashed his tires and almost set the float on fire.

I also remember some RIDICULOUS SL around season 3 when she was mysteriously ran over by a car while crossing the street!
She was in a wheelchair for episodes and there was this big "Who ran over Andrea Zuckerman?" Mystery storyline going in that was complicated and also involved Brandon and Steve

I remember being like 10 and the Dylan/ Brenda/ Kelly triangle being a BIG DEAL with all the girls at my school
It lasted basically all of season 3 and even season 4, although Brenda did get engaged and nearly married a guy named Stuart who Dylan had previously known, even leaving Stuart at the altar in Vegas Half the girls in my class were for Brenda and the other half fir Kelly
I remember when Dylan FINALLY made his decision it was like a big TV event that Fox promoted the hell out of, it was even the cover story of Soap Opera Digest that week
That triangle really worked because it got people talking and emotionally involved with the characters, with viewers talking about it like they KNEW these people in real life
The whole relationship and storyline with Kelly hooking up with her best friends boyfriend, while Brenda was away in Paris, was excellently plotted and hit every beat even if it was slow moving
They dragged out the reveal that it was Kelly who Dylan cheated on Brenda with for months and then got more story out of that and jumped to the next beat of the storyline
Even Spelling himself said that if Shannon didn't get herself fired and Brenda wasnt written off the show , they would of spent years continuing to milk that storyline
They tried to replicate that triangle in Season 5, but this time it was with Kelly/Dylan and now Brenda ' s twin brother Brandon,but it didn't have the same success
