I have just watched the first episode of the second series of 90210 and I loved it! Ok I have to admit it is pretty over the top. I tried to summarise the plot of the first series to my boyfriend with great difficulty! Needless to say I don't think he will be watching it with me again.
90210 is a spin off/ re- make of the original Beverley 90210 in the nineties. I used to love this show and was completely in love with Brendan (Jason Priestly - remember him?). A couple of the original characters feature in the new series (Kelly and Shannon) and it is full of other 'beautiful people'.
The series follows a new set of teens, the majority beautiful and wealthy but with familiar issues - teenage pregnancy, relationships, drugs, depression etc.
Ok so it is quite shallow and predictable but I think it has a real charm. I recommend it to any OC fans; it is definitely in the same vein. For a bit of fun TV watching you can't go wrong!
Summary: Good follw up from the original show
