'90210' -- The Reviews Are In!

The first reviews are in from last nigiht’s two-hour premiere of the much-buzzed-about 90210. Check it.

90210 is a perfectly competent and reasonably seamless revival that understands what made the original tick (and tick and tick), while being infused (occasionally suffused) with enough contemporary touchstones to remind new viewers that this isn’t their parents’ (or at least older siblings’) trusty fave… 90210 is not a disaster, and the CW can now officially let out a deep … sigh … of relief.” — Newsday

“More than just a famous zip code, 90210 is easily the most hyped show of the fall season and the CW is banking on all of the buzz to draw in big ratings. This spinoff, eight years after the first series ended, is a pallid copy of the original fish out of water story only with shinier cars, fancier clothes and Botox aplenty.” — Variety

“All the expected ingredients were there: gorgeous teens, lots of style and extravagance, raging hormones, and always the potential for backstabbing, broken hearts and payback. Same old, same old at West Beverly Hills High School.”– AP

WHAT DID YOU THINK of the two-hour premiere of 90210 — YAY or NAY?

    I actually thought it was kinda boring..

    me and my mom were watching it (she liked the original so we were watching this one together) and we just kept on looking over at each other like.. uhh when is this supposed to get interesting.

    this was the pilot episode though, so I’m not going to write the show off just yet.

    I’m a huge fan of gossip girl though! :)

    gotta say the 90210 Gangee wasnt that bad, funny too

    the show was watchable and not as bad as i thought it would be

    personally, i thought it was a good teen drama… but it should not be called 90210. if you had just tuned in and missed scenes with kelly, brenda and nat.. you would just think it was another oc/90210 rip-off. it may have some of the same characters and some of the babies grown up (erin silver/hannah zuckerman), but it’s just NOT 90210.

    i like the characters and the actors, but they don’t live up to the hype. the whole show didn’t live up to the hype and the 2-hours just made it dull. the first hour was better.

    soundtrack was good though :)

    I was a little disappointed in the show…but, I must say…it’s sad how true it is that many of these teens you can’t tell if they’re actually teens…I thought they lack a bit of the character from the original…I’m happy that they’ve included most of the originals which would make since…but, Lori Laughlin…I got a little confused and thought I was watching a rerun of Summerland…she never changes…nor does her character stretches much…but, hey, it’s good money for her if she can get it…I liked it…I won’t knock it because I loved the original and I hope they can step it up a notch…looking at the teens today really have you thinking how jaded they’ve become before they’re 18…sad, but true…and how old they look…jeez…take off some of that makeup and overdone hair girls.

    i thought this show was so boring and dumb. i didn’t like it at all. it reminds me of a racier version of sweet valley high…the issues and themes presented on this show have been recycled on so many other shows. nothing is different. it’s just the same old same old. i couldn’t get into the story at all… but i did see gossip girl yesterday and loved it. 90210 should just go away. all that hype for nothing. rating= F!

    Honestly, I don’t want to write this show off, but I thought I was watching the O.C. That’s not good since it’s the original O.C., But, I’ll try to give it a chance. Also, there’s the Gossip Girl factor. The only thing that separatesit from GG is the narrator. P.S. The Annie character is annoying. The kids look less troubled than the original. Maybe the acting in the original was stronger.
