First Look: The New 90210 Gets a Promo Video

"You wanna live in the zip. . . you gotta live by the code."

Yup, that's the super cheesarific tag line at the end of this new promo video for the CW's resurrection/retooling of 90210 (which just found a dad in former Melrose Place guy Rob Estes). The beginning of the promo made me howl with laughter as the classic theme music starts up again and the new kids basically reenact parts of the original 90210 intro. This quickly ends, though, and we launch into the little interviews with the cast of the show.

The most bizarre part of all is seeing Jessica Walter in this setting, since she will always and forever and ever be Lucille Bluth from Arrested Development in my eyes. I hope she gets to provide a lot of the funny lines in this show.

Anyway, to get a glimpse at the new Beverly Hills kids (and parents),

eh gads. WTF? First off, who names a character "Silver"? And the beginning of the intro, I swear it looked like they casted Cordelia from Buffy, Screech from Saved By The Bell, and Lindsay Lohan?? These actors looked too familiar for me. And that teacher character? Is he going to have an affair with one of those kids, because he looked younger then most of them. Good to see that the casting people recognized that yes, there are black people who live in the 90210. Hee hee. ;) All in all, I may pass. These kids look way to young and boring. Unlike Gossip Girl, where they definitely casted older actors who looked way more mature and cool.

I watched the original too, until they got old and added all of the new characters. I was looking forward to this show until I saw the preview. I loved Gossip Girl and I even catch One Tree Hill sometimes, but this doesn't look tolerable to me. Who am I kidding though, I'll probably watch it anyway.

Nooooooooooo....... 90210 was THE show back in the day. I watched it the entire run (with my mom). This "rendition" looks..... amazing dumb. Don't mess with a classic! The kids this is geared towards were not old enough to have watched the original, so why not just name it something else? With no Kelly/Brenda/Dylan, is it even worth it? IMPOSTER!

isnt that Eden from Nip/Tuck in the corner? I can not stand her!

I was too young to watch the original, but I want to see Shenae Grimes in this, a.k.a. Darcy from Degrassi. She's been stepping up with some mature storylines lately on that, and I'm curious to see if this can make a go of it and if she can pull it off. ...And Lori Loughlin is a hoot. I've always loved her.

Haha, I know, serenavallentine. You know what I would definitely watch? A spinoff in which Lucille Bluth, in all her boozy glory, told all those 90210 kids what's what. ;)

i'm excited to see jessica walter as another drunk grandmother. however, there is no way this cheesy spin off is going to compare to the golden arrested development.

Did you expect them to use a new theme song? It'd be different if the show was like... let's say what Knots Landing was to Dallas. Set in entirely different locations (and eventually entirely different timelines because they never acknowledged that Bobby wasn't really dead). They each had their own distinct theme, also because they were on at the same time. 90210 is just a continuation of BH90210, and therefore, uses the same theme.

Oh lord...I'm still so annoyed by the thought of this. It will never live up to the original. And I hate that they're using the same theme song. UGH.

i cant believe this show is going on when so many good shows have gotten cancelled. i'm sure this will be all sex and over-the-top drama. blah.

They have some color in the cast this time around. Mmmm. Was Lindsay Price the only minority cast member that stayed on the show for more than an episode?
