During the show's fourth season, Ian Ziering had a bit of a rock star-style breakdown. In an episode that saw him wrongly accused of rape, he was given some serious material to work with while attempting to clear his good name. But, so much powerful stuff was edited out. This was the first time he really got some great words to say, and he workshopped them, studied, and brought his game, only to never have even made it through the edit. Feeling betrayed, he tore his dressing room apart. See more »
Throughout out the series, it's clear that the actors/actresses portraying teenagers are actually in their 20s+. This is done as to not interfere with the schooling of real teenagers and to give the general viewing audience who are teenagers themselves, people to look up too. See more »
Look, David, we're putting out this issue with a tribute to Scott.
Why? So people can glance at it and then throw it in the garbage?
No, so people can get some idea about who he was.
Look, he was a jerk, okay? He was a jerk who blew himself away, that's who he was. You don't know. You left early. You missed out on the fun part when he picked up a loaded gun and twirled it around like he was Wyatt Earp. You weren't there to see him goof up and bleed all over his mom's Persian rug.

During the original run and earlier syndication airings, the show featured a lot of music from up to the time the episode takes place. However, due to issues with rights regarding the songs, all DVD and Hulu versions change the majority of the original soundtrack with generic replacements. There are also episodes with scenes edited out that would mention certain songs or music artists. It is not known if there will ever be a future release that retains the original music with unedited episodes. See more »
I did not watch much of the show when it was originally on TV. Now, about 25 years after it started I decided to watch something that "is 90's" and BH 90210 was the show that right away got into my head.
So I went through all the 10 seasons, now in my 30's and I must say I really enjoyed it. The fact that the actors were older than the characters doesn't bother one at this point anymore, actually it helped. It almost brought the feeling back of me watching the show about the older kids who are already in high school, just like it was back when I was 10 and caught a few episodes.
It is of course very cheesy, yet entertaining. One can see how Aaron Spelling started and set up the formula for the teen dramas that followed Beverly Hills. It is also great to see the 90's go by in their clothes and the things they live through.
I loved their high school years, but I enjoyed the show pretty much until Valerie left. After she was gone it went downhill for me, but by that time the show was almost over.
While Valerie was my favorite female character, David was my favorite guy. He was a sweet kid from the start, although he has done a lot of stupid things during the show. Most characters had their charm. But even though I liked the show pretty much until the end, when it came to the adult time most of the original cast has lost their charm. I liked Kelly at first, but in the final years of the show I couldn't stand her. Steve stopped being fun but an annoying guy who will have a kid. And when Dylan came back he seemed like an annoying parody of himself.
Still, the show is a classic for me. As somebody who once in a while likes to watch some cheesy soap, this was a good entertainment with a great cast that fitted the show very well and will always be the faces that I associate with the 90's pop culture.
