Remembering 90210

The always entertaining Best Week Ever blog has a roundup of 90210 characters/actors. It was a lot of fun to read, and kicked me back in time to the simpler days of loving Dylan McKay with all my heart, and believing in blonde power above all else (as I always always chose Kelly over Brenda). But the piece irked me, as it kept getting one thing majorly wrong. One thing that is very important, at least in my eyes. Kelly & Brandon did not end up together! He left the show before it even ended! Kelly and Dylan were together in the final scene! What's wrong with you people?? Also, the Kelly/Dylan relationship went on for years and years, in the background of every other relationship both of them ever had, whereas Kelly/Brandon was a comparative blip. I mean hullo, anybody else remember the previous life flashbacks of Kelly and Dylan in the Wild Wild West? Soul mates! So, uh, stop it guys. Kelly & Dylan 4 Eva!

One thing they thankfully got right, however, was that Donna and David totally did it during college. Towards the end of the series, the show -- and people at large -- seemed to forget that and were all going on about Donna's virginity. But nay! They totally did it, in the beach appartment. Donna had short hair and wore really lame white lingere. Never forget people! Donna Martin was not a virgin when she got married. Read: Donna is a slut.

Oh, and, by far my favorite part of the post, regarding David Silver: "[he] inexplicably turn[ed] pie-and-coffee hangout The Peach Pit into an after-hours nightclub (which was somehow never affected by competition from LA’s more “posh”, less “diner-like” bar scene)."

(Even though I have questions about the accuracy there, as I remember Valerie having a strong involvement in the Peach Pit After Dark. Really, this parenthetical statement is just an excuse to link to this.) Jeremy Jordan! Alright!

The Brandon/Kelly relationship was featured during seasons 4, 5, 7, 8, and 9. It was not a "comparative blip" at all, as anyone who watched the show knows.
