Beverly Hills 90210

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?

by Anonymousreply 33706/14/2015

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.

I did not watch it at first. But the producers were smart and they reran the entire first season over the summer, since there was only reruns on, I started to watch BH 90210 and fell in love. I never missed an episode.

It was great that they aired new episodes over the summer. I loved the Brenda years. It went downhill when they put Dylan with Kelly and Brenda was considered the bitch for protesting. Never understood how people liked Dylan/Kelly.

Gotta say, Dawson's Creek holds up better in reruns.

I was in high school when the show premiered. I had the hots for Mr. Walsh. What a sexy daddy. IIRC, there's brief shot of him in a robe during the opening credits.

Count me in on the Mr. Walsh lust. IIRC, there were a few scenes in the earlier episodes where he supposedly came home from jogging or whatever wearing a muscle / tank-top and looked fine. I think there may have also been a scene or two of him in boxers while in bed with Mrs. Walsh.

I loved the show for the first three seasons. The high school years. It was funny seeing Brenda turn into a bitch during the first Emily Valentine episode at the start of season 2.

She calls Emily a hootenanny during a family Bar-B-Q and says "Why don't you get your guitar and we'll all gather round and swoon!"

Thus beginning the "I hate Brenda" campaign.

Perhaps the funniest part is that the most fucked-up girl at West Beverly High has now, on the new "90210," become the West Beverly High guidance counselor! Which is really pretty perfect, if you think about it.

[quote]It was funny seeing Brenda turn into a bitch during the first Emily Valentine episode at the start of season 2.

The writers turned Brenda into a bitch specifically because Shannen had become such a bitch, which is why she was eventually sent off on a never-ending "semester abroad" to Paris.

I didn't watch 90210, but I remember how hyped Luke Perry was at the time. In the early 90s he really had the PR push behind him - he was going to be the next James Dean (even though he was about 30) and a huge movie star. Within a year of 90210, Perry was over and couldn't get arrested.

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.

R153 well I think TAT was the best actress. Even with all the backstabbing and bitching she was able to make her sympathetic and likeable. It certainly wasn't creditable to the writing.

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"

Tara eventually kidnapped Kelly at gun point and tried to kill her with carbon monoxide poisoning!

by Anonymousreply 21701/15/2015

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"

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!

One of my favorite Valerie and Kelly scenes is towards the end of season 6, when they're being interviewed by the police about the whereabouts of coke head bail jumper Colin, who had pulled an OJ and lead the police on a high speed chase only to "disappear"

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! "

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

And of course all of 90210 thinks that Kelly is gonna muffins dive with Alison

See in 90210 land, not only does every man fall in love with the beautiful Kelly Taylor, but the occasional lesbian does too!

But they left out the whole Ray cheats on Donna with Valerie storyline and after Ray breaks it off with Valerie, Valerie begins (briEfly) stalking Donna and Ray, only for Valerie to blackmail Ray and have Ray leave town briefly, which of course set up the Donna is tied up and nearly raped and murdered by the campus rapist storyline!

Good thing David saved her from the evil Garrett Slain!

They should have just let Donna get raped. Then that whole tedious virginity crap could have been over. And didn't Kellie get raped like three times?

[quote]Andera should have become a lesbian. The lack of gay representation on BH90210 is a strike against it. Melrose was ahead of the pack.

Melrose Place was ahead of BH90210 back then, when it came to gay representation. I might be wrong, but didn't FOX not allow a scene of Matt kissing a man to be aired?

I hated the short storyline in which Val had an HIV scare.

R289 she acted t well, though. Actually, she was the best actress on the show.

by Anonymousreply 29001/25/2015

In the episode about the HIV scare, I thought the writers were going to go the route of having Val test positive. This was a few years after Chad Lowe played an HIV positive character on Life Goes On. At the end, she got her negative results.

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. I bet he secretly pined after Brandon.

"The lack of gay representation on BH90210 is a strike against it."

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.

Remember seeing Casper van Dien trying too woo Tori Spelling. I mean, really?! Talk about fantasy.

by Anonymousreply 29501/26/2015

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!

Did EVERYONE on this show cheat? It sure seems like it

Accept for the Walsh parents of course

I mean even Donna's parents BOTH cheated!

Another thing is that EVERYONE had to be in a relationship, even if they didn't love the person or were waiting for the person that they really loved to return the favor

Also like Claire said "this group is so incestuous"

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.

Aaron Spelling loved the actress

Season 1 really feels like an entirely different show

The focus is on the Walsh family and the episodes are all self contained and actually have endings!

by Anonymousreply 31301/31/2015

The Walsh parents were so sickly sweet. Even as a teen watching the show, I wanted to puke. Brandon was also a bit too goodie-goodie.

Kelly was my favorite character, she was the school slut and got to bang most of the guys on the show.

R214 Brandon began to have an edge to him around season 4 when he began the affair with the older married woman Lucinda

A few years after that storyline ended, her new ex husband also a professor at the college cane back to the show to get revenge on Brandon as he blamed him for their divorce

Does anyone know why Jennie Garth and Tiffani Thiessen no longer speak? They were best friends during the show, but had some kind of falling out. Ironically, Jennie and Shannen are now friends after having hated each other for years.

Was Shannon really a total bitch on set? I know it was reported all the time. Did they invent this to make the show more interesting?

by Anonymousreply 31801/31/2015

Jennie Garth said in an interview years ago that she butted head with Shannen. I also vaguely remember Gabrielle Carteris saying something similar and Shanen wasn't invited to Gabrielle's wedding.

Aaron Spelling was always denying rumors about Tori and Shannen having problems.

R318 Just one example.

by Anonymousreply 32101/31/2015

Carteris was way to old for this show!

In real life she's actually a few months older than Heather Locklear!

All of her storylines sucked, including the previously mentioned hot mama having an extramarital affair with a hunky married doctor storyline

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

It was more like "Who cares"?

by Anonymousreply 32201/31/2015

I thought Andrea was in wheelchair because she had a double hip replacement.

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
