    Default Anyone watch the 90210 reboot?

    I'm aging myself but I watched the original series in the 90s and loved it. I watched the reboot and was so disappointed. I'll probably give it a few more episodes though.

    Wondering what anyone else thought about it.

    I watched it out of curiosity. I really liked the original as well... until the last couple of seasons.

    I think premise is OK, but them playing "heightened versions of themselves" doesn't work for me because I think we all know too much about them IRL. I mean, we all know Tori is married to the weasel, so seeing her with an actor playing her husband was odd. However, the jokes about Tori being broke were funny. (I think she looks horrible BTW),

    I don't think I'll watch.

    Wait there’s a new reboot? I watched a little of the first lame reboot from a few years ago and I had no idea there was a new new one.

    I watched the first episode only, out of curiosity. It.was.terrrrrrrible.

    I loved the original, until the last few seasons. Once Luke Perry left, then Shannen Dougherty, I quit watching

    I must be the only one in the world who loved it. I would have preferred an actual reboot of the show, but thought the concept that they went with was brilliant. They are basically playing themselves as the world sees them, which is their 90210 characters plus all the tabloid stories that get written about them. In a lot of ways it does feel like you are watching a reboot of the original show since they are acting like their characters to a large extent. They even made a joke about it early on how people think they ARE the character that they played. I'm hoping for a second season, but don't really expect it because it seems like so many hated it. I think they probably made a mistake going with clever instead of giving the fans what they wanted.

    I liked it as well, though I never watched the original, so maybe that's why? And I was surprised Tori is actually a decent actress, at least in this!
