Today is 90210. September 2, 2010 which equals 9/02/10. A fun day to have a tie in to the TV series, Beverly Hills 90210. This is one of my favorite shows of all time and a show that I grew up watching. A generation of fans grew up with this show and grew attached to these characters that we watched grow over ten years. When the show signed off in 2000, it really felt like fans were saying goodbye to these characters that they had known and loved in that time. Now, we obviously had the characters going in and out of the series over the ten years although many did stay throughout the run of the series. I still find myself watching reruns on SOAPnet and remembering these fun episodes. I remember tuning in excited for the season to start early with the summer season premieres and wondering how the love triangle of Dylan, Brenda, and Kelly was going to turn out. The show tackled serious topics as well from teenage pregnancy, rape, drugs, and alcohol. Then, we also had the fun silly high school stories that were fun to watch. The show went on to the college years and into the real world beyond that with what the characters would do in their lives. SOAPnet will be airing its normal episodes today but I think that a marathon was in order. It is nice to see The CW airing a rerun of the new 90210 series but how fun could the promotion have been for the season premiere to be on the date of 90210? I get that the date doesn't fall on what its normal night would be but I think this would be a fun excuse for it. Plus, I wish the writers of the show would not completely forget its roots but that is another blog entry for another time and one that I've already done. LOL. Anyway, just a fun little moment of a day for us Beverly Hills 90210 fans. So, go get your custom license plates made that say I8A4RE, buy yourself a mega burger, put out an APB for Shannen Doherty to get in her Laverne gear, and by the way….Donna Martin graduates..….
