While I've managed to cut The CW's 90210 update a bit of slack, I will be all up on them like stank on a Dena Higley script if their planned Melrose Place reboot isn't all that and bottle of Kimberly Shaw's happy pills. I loved the original Beverly Hills, 90210, but it's far soapier spinoff was my SHIZ NIT! I never missed a single episode, not one, even when Rena Sofer was on.
Amanda (Heather Locklear), Billy and Alison (Andrew Shue and Courtney Thorne-Smith), Sydney (Laura Leighton), Jo (Daphne Zuniga), Jake (Grant Show) Jane (Josie Bisset), Michael (Thomas Calabro), Matt (Doug Savant), Peter (Jack Wagner) and of course that crazy Kimberly (Marcia Cross) will always hold a special place in my pop culture congested heart, so The CW better come correct!
Here's a classic clip from the original MP that saw twisted sisters Jane and Sydney battling it out over their grandma's wedding dress. Syd planned to wear it to her wedding to Jane's dirty ex-hubby Michael (primetime's most underrated villain). Too bad thanks to her mad-as-hell sis, the bride ended up wearing chlorine! Thanks Gush900 for the tip!
