12 ‘Beverly Hills 90210’ Plot Details That Made Zero Sense

More like Beverly Hills 9021-ut-oh, right? Right?!

During the ’90s, millions of young viewers anxiously waited every week to see the new episode of Beverly Hills 90210. The groundbreaking prime-time teen soap opera followed Minnesota twins Brandon (Jason Priestley) and Brenda Walsh (Shannen Doherty) as they adjusted to life among the rich and despicably shallow students of West Beverly Hills High. Over its 10-year run, the show touched on serious topics like alcohol and drug abuse, estranged parents, and navigating sex. The melodramatic acting, outrageous fashion, and adult themes spoke to Gen X teens unlike any other television program had up until that point.

Now, over 19 years after it went off the air, Beverly Hills 90210 is getting a six-episode reboot, BH90210, on Fox starting Aug. 7. (Spoiler alert: there will be Botox.) Why anyone thought that bringing this show back was a good idea, we don’t know, because we’re still trying to figure out these 13 things that never made sense on the original Beverly Hills 90210.
