I know, right? We were totally cute.
I guess I was your typical 17 year old. I had the whole world figured out. I was definitely way more mature than most of my peers or so I thought. What could be more perfect for a girl of that age than a teenage soap opera in prime time? Well judging by the way my friends and I watched the hell out of Beverly Hills 90210, not much. Oh my gosh, the endless conversations about Brenda, Kelly and Donna. What they wore, their hair and of course which one was our favourite. Should Dylan pick Brenda or Kelly? Or were Kelly and Brandon soulmates? Should Donna sleep with David? And why was her Mom such a hard ass? Such cutting edge drama when you're 17.
And the best part? It's Back!! Oh that's right baby, 90210 is back. Now I would have tuned in for the title alone, but tell me that Brenda and Kelly (it would have been awesome if they'd been able to work out a deal for Donna too) are back and I am making an evening out of it. We're talking an early bedtime for the kids so I can ensure a two hour time slot of no interruptions for the premiere on Tuesday.
What about you? Were you a 90210 fan back in the day? Will you be watching the updated version? I'm interested to see what's considered racy for a teenage soap now compared to a decade or two ago. I can only imagine how vastly different it will be.
