Today is a day that we’ll never see again. It’s 90210 Day. Get it? It’s September 2, 2010 aka 9/02/10! Those magical numbers have aligned to give us that Beverly Hills zip code that belongs to some of TV’s most famous (and rich) teens. Back in 1990 creator Darren Star gathered a group of unknown actors, some teens, some damn near 30 (we’re looking at you Gabrielle Carteris) and made them the faces of a generation. So in honor of the day and the zip code, here’s our 90210 tribute…
Besides its stars, “Beverly Hills 90210” was known for its cool theme song and opening credit sequence. When you heard that heavy electric guitar you knew you were in for drama. Out of the ten years the show was on air season 4 had my favorite intro. Therefore, I’ve posted it here for you to enjoy.
In the decade that followed the cancellation of the series, many new teen-centric dramas tried to take its place, most notably “The O.C”. They used the formula of pretty people with ugly problems, and it worked for a good 4 seasons.
Here are a few fan made videos that pay homage to the show that started it all.

And of course, here’s the theme for the new “90210″ that currently airs on The CW. It doesn’t have as much pizazz as the original but I guess this is what the kids like these days.
What show do you think was the most influenced by 90210 (besides the remake)?
