    Kelly Taylor from Bev Hills princess to guidance counselor?

    by tylerzero

    You'd think she'd commit suicide before letting her life become such a disappointment.

    They need to bring back Rebecca Gayheart.

    by Pops Freshemeyer

    I'm sure they can write in a zombie Toni Marchette someplace...

    I'd punch her in the mouth with my dick

    way to continue ripping off degrassi

    by bacci40

    the only reason 90201 was created in the first place is because spelling couldnt get the rights to degrassi...and now that degrassi tng is in american syndication, here they are again, bringing back 90201, with some original cast members...bleh, i would still rather watch a canadian teen melodrama than this crap

  • May 11, 2008, 12:50 a.m. CST

    And now for something completely different...

    by ShogunMaster

    That's a wicked price for the Monty Python set. I thinks it shall be mine!

    The TRULY sad part about 90210....

    by Playkins

    The 90s version of the show is now considered tame by today's standards. WHY THE FUCK CAN'T A NETWORK DO A REALISTIC TEEN DRAMA?!? "Freaks and Geeks" and "My So-Called Life" came the closest. What kid can relate to a buch of spoiled brats that hang out at yacht clubs and spend their parent's fortunes?!?

  • May 11, 2008, 2:03 a.m. CST

    Jennie Garth is 3 kids in and still...

    by poeticwarriorII

    a hot piece of ass! I would wreck that woman.

    Oh so tiny...

    by Stuart-Renton

    "I'd punch her in the mouth with my dick" Yeah, but with it (clearly) being so very tiny, she'd barely feel it.

    "I'd like to present this award...

    by Rocco Curioso

    ... to the girl with the biggest tits!" $39 for the complete Monty Python? I'm all over that like a cheap suit.<P>(Insert obligatory wanna bone Jennie Garth now-as-then comment) Some women hold up better than others... hence we have Jennifer Beals thriving a full quarter-century after "Flashdance".

  • May 11, 2008, 3:28 a.m. CST

    This will be such a shallow show...

    by wowsah156

    that it will succeed or fail on the theme tune alone. No jiggy or gangsta rap type opening titles please . I want some hollyweird type guitar RAWK!!! Anyway i have to agree that he casting should be along the lines of Gus Van Saint type teen casting. ACTUAL teens who are just going through puberty might help. I also agree with the criticisms of making it a show about aspirational teens who have rich parents. Audiences have moved on from that. They want a bit of depth and substance. What would be really brave would be to have a 3 season story arc about one of the characters suffering from depression who might plan a college massacre. And let him interact withthe spolit rich kids . The amount of substance that coud be got from a storyline of this natruee might be groundbreaking. Oh and please dont cast hollyweird brats who have never left LA. I want to see some REAL human beings. Not a dirtytanned hollyweird girliepuss who looks like something out of a porno.

    I don't have many fond memories of 90210...

    by newc0253

    but those that do involve Jennie Garth.

  • May 11, 2008, 6:01 a.m. CST

    Did the CW buy the rights from Fox?

    by Yeti

    Or did Fox not even own them? <P> How long before Tori (My father didn't even know I got the part of Donna Martin) Spelling tries to horn in on the action, along with pretentious hair plug recipient Ian (pronounced Eye-on) Ziering? Place your bets folks.

  • May 11, 2008, 7:28 a.m. CST

    It would be cool if she bangs some students.

    by BigTuna

    Great subplot.

    by Pizza The Hut

    They've added a few numbers thanks to the population explosion since the original series.

  • May 11, 2008, 7:38 a.m. CST

    Did she ever do any nudity?

    by fiester

    Garth ever nekkid anywhere?

  • May 11, 2008, 8:46 a.m. CST

    Jennie Garth

    by Itchy

    is one of those weird chicks who actually got hotter after she squirted out some brats. Just like Elisabeth Hassleback. Bizzare. Anyway, if she were my guidance counselor back in high school, then I would have been trying pretty hard to bang my guidance counselor.

  • May 11, 2008, 9:43 a.m. CST

    This show will be a hit...

    by Mr. Profit

    The CW is in the process of rebranding the network to build on it's "Gossip Girl" buzz. So this relaunch will work. You get rich kids together and give them crazy shit to deal with and you got a show that could go on as long as the original. Kelly Taylor coming back was lame though. I never thought her character was good. Brenda coming back would have been the boost to send this remake over the top. But as it is, this show already has the insanely hot Annalynne McCord and the cute Shenae Grimes as the lead.

  • May 11, 2008, 9:48 a.m. CST

    "Degrassi", "Fox", "Vmars", "Arrested Development"

    by Mr. Profit

    This show already stole a Degrassi cast member to be it's version of "Brenda". So I guess I should expect to see Darcy get killed off in the Degrassi finale? <p>The "Fox" network doesn't own 90210. Spelling did and his shit got sold to CBS Television Distribution. And CBS has a stake in The CW.</P> <p>Rob Thomas was behind this remake, so I'm giving it a shot.</P> <P>And Jessica Walter will be the drunken matriarch. So just to see Lucille Bluth again, I'm there.</P>

    Did the seventh seal crack while I was on vacation?

    by TheEleventhDoctor

    The mere existence of a 90210 sequel has got to be the sign of the apocalypse. Also, I find it hysterical that anyone would claim that the audience has "moved on". Moved on to what? Reality TV? So much for the theory of evolution, huh? The baseline for your typical television viewer is Stupid. Rarely does it go up from there and often it goes down.

    hot chicks from old series

    by johnnyg korrupt

    Nicole Eggert aint hot anymore..and she's only like 35. Erika Eleniak looks crap too as does the hot chick from Step By Step. Garth looks hotter now than when she was on 90210. Vanessa Angel probably looks the worst.

  • May 11, 2008, 11:20 a.m. CST

    Luke Perry is the old man in the retirement home

    by Datascream

    that hangs out around the schools and bangs the high school chicks.

    I could not have said it better myself.

    Kelly Taylor

    by Bat185

    I thought I read somewhere she was going to be a fashion design teacher? Now they're saying she's a guidance counselor? Either way it'll be nice to see someone from the old series crossing over to the new one. And yes, Jennie Garth is still HOT!!!!!

  • May 11, 2008, 1:17 p.m. CST

    They need to get it right

    by Turd Furgeson

    Teachers are fucking CRAZY!!!!!!! Kelly was the most mentally unstable one of them all so it kinda fits. As long as they don't make her a do gooder guidance councelor like every other high school show and movie out there. She needs to be hooked on pain killers or coke and her only decent moments are when she's advising the kids.. Remember show writers, the craziest women on the planet are teachers and flight attendants. First rule of dating for guys is never date a teacher or a flight attendant, unless you just wanna get laid, cause that's all they're good for.... This could have potential if the show portrays the teachers and students realistically, wacked out adults and mal-adjusted, retarded, fuck up california kids!

  • May 11, 2008, 2:48 p.m. CST

    It's like the original 90210- But even MORE vapid!

    by ZeroCorpse

    Jeez. And I thought it was shallow originally, but compared to today's Gen-Y kids, the original cast would seem like scientists. <p> Can't Gen-Y come up with ANYTHING original for themselves? Everything in that generation is borrowed from previous ones, and then just "updated" with the Internet and mobile phones. <p> CW is a cesspool of stupid.

  • May 11, 2008, 3:28 p.m. CST

    Mr. Profit...i was thinking the same thing

    by bacci40

    i wonder if they will have darcy really commit suicide on the degrassi finale' question is, why get shenae? seems they want to grab the degrassi audience, so why not try and sign cassie steele or better yet shane kippel....cuz spin rules

  • May 11, 2008, 3:54 p.m. CST

    I loathe 90210,but Jennie Garth is ok.

    by Toby___Wong

    It's strange that she never made it to the big movies. Really strange. And she looks as fine as ever.

  • May 11, 2008, 4:22 p.m. CST

    Come to think of it none of the cast has done well..

    by Yeti

    Brian Austin Green is the only one to have done two additional TV series since 90210. A sitcom with Freddy Prinze Jr and the Sarah Connor Chronicles. <P> Yeah yeah, I know Shannon Dougherty did "Charmed" and got sacked after 3 seasons. And the North Shore was so insipid I'm not even going to count it.

  • May 11, 2008, 4:24 p.m. CST

    Cassie Steele would have made more sense...

    by Mr. Profit

    She is hotter, a better actress, and would make more sense since Manny Santos has LA Ambitions... Shenae Grimes is OK, but I would have prefered Cassie.

  • May 11, 2008, 4:26 p.m. CST

    Shannon left. She wasn't fired.

    by Mr. Profit

    She bounced on Charmed when she heard Milano went to the producers and wanted her fired. So she quit.

  • May 11, 2008, 6:05 p.m. CST

    Brian Austin Green will not be returning

    by ewokstew

    He will have his hands full kicking Terminator booty

  • May 11, 2008, 6:21 p.m. CST

    Kelly would never have turned out

    by PotSmokinAlien

    as a fucking guidance counsellor. If anything she would have volunteered in the school's health center or something.<P>And to those of you saying 90210 was shallow, the first season was pretty groundbreaking (for 1991, anyway) in terms of what a show aimed at kids and teens dealt with. It didn't really get ridiculous until they got to college.

  • May 11, 2008, 7:29 p.m. CST

    shenae grimes is fugly

    by bacci40

    and she doesnt have any slut pics on the internet...cassie does...and seriously, if the cw wants a ratings winner, they can bring over all the degrassi viewers with the casting of shane, its ez to kill him off from degrassi...he has ball cancer...bring shane kippel to the states

    Kelly is back!

    by Dazzler69

    I am there! And she did have a series on WB thank you very much.

    Shannon Doherty gotta eat!

    by DarfurOnTheRocks

    She should be in this. They could work it where she finally comes back from France after getting her doctorate from the Sorbonne in Structuralism...

  • May 12, 2008, 3:24 p.m. CST

    Judge Briggs... yes she has

    by Potch

    You said she hasn't worked since 90210, but she has. She was on the WBs What I Like About You for 4 seasons.

  • May 12, 2008, 4:08 p.m. CST

    Why not a guidance counsellor?

    by jim

    Rob Thomas can use all the ideas he never got to use on Miss Guided.<p>I thought the premise of this new 90210 was a "former West Beverly student returns as the Principal and his mother is a pill-popping ex-actress". That would be Steve Sanders, right?
