Editorial Reviews

Product Description

One of the definitive, landmark shows of the 1990s, 90210 quickly became an important fixture on the FOX and in the popular discourse of adolescents and young adults. The second season’s main characters, Dylan, Kelly, Donna, Steve, David, Andrea and twins Brandon and Brenda all attended West Beverly Hills High School. Brandon and Brenda Walsh and their parents, transplants from Minneapolis were the stable nuclear family with strong values; their home was a safe haven for the whole gang and the center of much of the drama. The show dealt with a steady stream of love triangles and other romantic entanglements and occasionally touched on more serious issues as well.

Amazon.com

From a pregnancy scare and a psycho girlfriend to a cameo by Color Me Badd, Beverly Hills 90210's sophomore year demonstrates why this was "the greatest TV show in history with a zip code in its title." That's what comedians John Aboud and Michael Colton (Best Week Ever) call it in a very entertaining bonus feature that affectionately roasts 90210 from its so-the-drama melodramatics to its stuck-in-the-'90s fashion sense (high-waisted jeans, buttoned-up shirts, and whatever the heck you call the outrageous wardrobe worn by Brian Austin Green's David). This is the season that catapulted 90210 from Most Likely to Succeed to BSOF (Best Show on Fox). Certainly, it was must-see viewing for teens who anxiously tuned in each week to vicariously chart the serial adventures of siblings Brenda (Shannon Doherty) and older brother Brandon (Jason Priestley), recent transplants from Minnesota to glitzy Beverly Hills. Season 2, one of the best in this series' decade-long run, is one for the time capsule, with episodes and story arcs that loom large in the 90210 phenomenon, among them: Brenda's tempestuous, on-and-off-again relationship with soulful bad boy Dylan (Luke Perry in his instantly iconic role), causing rifts between her and her increasingly disapproving parents; new girl Emily Valentine (Christine Elise) going all Fatal Attraction on Brandon (no rabbits are boiled but a homecoming float is in jeopardy); Kelly (Jennie Garthhooking up with Melrose Place-bound Jake (Grant Show), and Donna (Tori Spelling) in her mermaid Halloween costume.

Degrassi Jr. High has nothing on 90210 when it comes to issues-oriented episodes. Not four minutes into the season opener, Brenda announces she is five days "late." "I love Dylan, and I thought I knew what we were doing" she tells BFFs Kelly and Donna, "but I'm beginning to get the feeling that it wasn't worth it." Other episodes address abstinence, child abuse, the physically challenged, sexual orientation, racism, rape, and steroids. A heartbreaking story arc concerns David shunning his former best friend, Scott, who returns from an Oklahoma vacation all urban cowboy, making him even more of an outcast with the popular kids. "Cool it with the guns," David cautions, foreshadowing tragic events to come in the episode "The Next 50 Years." Throwing something of a wet blanket on precious memories of the show is the substitution of generic songs for 90210's originally killer soundtracks of alternative and classic rock and golden oldies. One would think that the Peach Pit has the lamest jukebox on Earth. --Donald Liebenson

4.0 out of 5 stars True fans might be frustrated by this release May 3, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As a huge fan of Beverly Hills, 90210, I have been waiting for season 2 since the day after season 1 was released. Overall this is a good season, although not as good as season 1 or season 3. The show tried to remain true to its roots by tackling tough issues, and although this act is pulled off well, it leaves the viewer feeling like every typical high school cliché is touched upon.

The biggest disappointments for me in this season were in the following areas:
- At times the transfer to DVD appears incredibly grainy and in poor quality.
- On the DVD cases for discs 6 and 7, the episode overviews are not consistent with the actual plots for each episode. I have written them correctly in the list below.
- The soundtrack: This issue makes the show a lot worse off. Music by Seal, R.E.M., Monie Love, Garth Brooks, Chris Isaak, Roxette, Robert Palmer, Janis Joplin, The Bangles, Color Me Badd, The Pretenders, and many other artists has all been replaced by forgetfully bland generic studio tracks. I realize that it's not always possible for all of the original music rights to be obtained for a series, but the omission of every noteworthy song affects the overall quality and experience of the show. The two episodes where this is most evident is in 'Chuckie's Back', when Steve pulls away from the gang on a bus, the song '2000 Miles' from The Pretenders is played, resulting in a heart-tugging ending. The episode of 'The Next Fifty Years' starts out with 'Friends In Low Places' by Garth Brooks and hypes up to 'Work It Out' by Monie Love as the gang teaches Scott how to dance. Those songs all appeared on the original series but were replaced on the DVD version with no-name songs that will surely leave hardcore fans frustrated.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointed with season 2 May 6, 2007
Format:DVD
I watched 90210 as a teenager,and couldn't wait for it to come out on dvd.Season 2 was SUCH a disappointment! The quality is poor- very grainy in some parts.But what upset me the most was that they edited the episodes and took some dialouge out.For example-in the episode where we meet Emily Valentine,they cut out the song she sang to Brenda on the school lawn,and when they were at Brenda's house-they cut out the part when the girls were writing the lyrics to "addicted to clothes" to perform at hello day.Also-and this has to be the worst part about season 2-they changed the music!And replaced it with songs that don't go with the scene it's played with.Again-in the episode with Emily,when Brenda and Dylan get back together at the end,the original song that was playing in the car was Chris Issack's "wicked game"...watch the episode in season 2 on dvd,and it's something different! Or,in "beach blanket brandon",when Brenda breaks up with Dylan,originally R.E.M.'s "losing my religion" was playing...on dvd-it's some no-name song.Part of what made 90210 great was the music played-it really made some scenes memorable(thank god they didn't change the slow song every one danced to in "spring dance"!)I just think that if we're going to buy the episodes they filmed,then we should be entitled to the WHOLE episode-no deleted scenes,and more importantly,no deleted music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why are there missing episodes?? August 24, 2014
By John D.
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I love this show and my girlfriend and I were excited to see that Amazon had finally added more than just the first season. Unfortunately, for some reason, multiple episodes are missing in each season. I'm really confused by this and it's quite disappointing. I was guessing that it had to do some type of licensing or agreement issue with the music in the episodes but I really don't know.

4.0 out of 5 stars Would be 5 stars with original music May 26, 2007
By J
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This was one of the classic seasons of the show. I would have rated it 5 stars except that the original music was replaced...again. The acting was better and so many issues were addressed: breaking up with a first love, teen pregnancy, rape, death of a best friend, party drugs (U4EA, steroids, and others.

I highly recommend this season!

5.0 out of 5 stars I love 90210!!! June 2, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have season 1 and was glad when season 2 was coming out. I love to watch 90210 over and over again. They should have come out with the series on DVD a long time ago. For some reason the DVD's are a bit grainy, not up to DVD quality, but I see past that and keep on watching them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic June 7, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Beverly Hill 90210 is as much fun now as it was back when it came out! It's funny to see on this season how the microphone pops into the top view of the screen in a lot of the episodes, but it doesnt ruin the show. Quality product, can't wait for season 3!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Starting to come into its own February 14, 2007
Format:DVD
Much like its counterpart, Melrose Place, this show started to take off after a rather tame first season. Here is the list of the second season episodes....

1 Beach Blanket Brandon

2 The Party Fish

3 Summer Storm

4 Anaconda

5 Play It Again, David

6 Pass/Not Pass

7 Camping Trip

8 Wildfire

9 Ashes to Ashes

10 Necessity Is a Mother

11 Leading From the Heart

12 Down and Out of District in Beverly Hills

13 Halloween

14 The Next 50 Years

15 U4EA

16 My Desperate Valentine

17 Chuckie's Back

18 A Walsh Family Christmas

19 Fire and Ice

20 A Competitive Edge

21 Everybody's Talkin' `Bout It

22 Baby Makes Five

23 Cardio Funk

24 The Pit and The Pendulum

25 Meeting Mr. Pony

26 Things to Do on a Rainy Day

27 Mexican Standoff

28 Wedding Bell Blues

While there are some great storylines in this season, I think they tried a little too hard to bring issues to the show. First, there is the issue of death (THe Next 50 Years, David's former best friend accidentally shoots himself. My Desperate Valentine brings up the issue of raves and underground drug use. A Competitive Edge deals with steroids and high school athletes, etc.) And it goes on......

The relationships between the friends continues to find new twists and turns, and that alone makes it entertaining. And I think it is admirable that this show tried to tackle serious issues that affect many people, especially today. But, I think they tried to do it too much in one season.

A good season, yes. Not the best one, though.
