Yes, everyone, it’s Beverly Hills 90210. You know, the Saturday night series where you were actually expected to give a flying feather duster for a bunch of over-privileged, under-mannered Los Angerlese teenagers.
It’s all coming back to us now: Brenda and Brandon, the twins who looked like there was a fifteen year age difference; the Peach Pit, where Brandon worked to show that he came from down-to-earth parentage; Luke Perry…. Mmmm.
Anyways, it’s not the original, it’s a spin-off, bringing the 90210-ers right up to date (so presumably they’ll be making sex tapes and ‘leaking’ them on the interweb) and it’ll be a pilot written by someone who wrote Veronica Mars. Us neither.
Oh, but Darren Star – the fabulous producer type person behind BH90210 and Sex and the City (and the fine but forgotten Central Park West, starring Raquel Welch and John Barrowman in the giddy world of NYC magazines) – is not involved. How boo!
