One of these days, I'll open the mail, and in it will be the pilot of the new 90210, and then I'll be the happiest girl alive. But since that day hasn't come yet, at least I have a couple of new promos and a boatload of pictures of the new cast to help satisfy my curiosity.
The biggest thing these new ads show: Jennie Garth as Kelly Taylor, all grown up! OK, so we see her for a split second, and half of her one line is delivered off-camera, but still: Kelly Taylor! It's fun to see. Also nice: A few more shots of the sun-drenched, bikini-clad kids living the high life in the fanciest zip code in the country. (No action shots of Dustin Milligan surfing yet, though — but I've got a photo of it in the gallery.) Also, my worries that Shenae Grimes might come off as a bit too whiny are balanced by my sheer delight every time Tristan Wilds smiles — so for now at least, it's all good. I also have to give the ad designers props for dropping the final "-10" from the show's title at the end of the ad, leaving "9.02" — the show's premiere date. Clever, clever.
To check out the videos and images for yourself and tell me how you think the new 90210 is shaping up, just read more.
