  • Why can’t they play Donna and Kelly? Somebody needs to repair the damage done to their characters by the new 90210! Still can’t believe they split up Donna and David and gave Kelly a baby with Dylan instead of Brandon! Ugh!

    • It’s time to let things these things go…..it was fiction.

      • I think they know its fiction. When a show is on for 10 years, you get a little attached to the characters. It’s just fun to discuss it, that’s all.

    • If they played their 90210 characters, then this show would be a drama, not a comedy.

      • I’m not so sure about that… Part of the joy of BH 90210 was how ridiculous it was. I find myself laughing at most of it everytime I rewatch it!

  • Here’s hoping they cast Shannen Doherty in a role too! Perhaps she can be one of the criminals they’re chasing.

  • Actually David and Donna didn’t spilt up. Remember when David sent her flowers, so I guess that was a way of saying it wasn’t over and left it open headed. I was PISSED about that.

  • I meant open ended. It was great seeing Donna again, but I was pissed that the writers thought messing with Beverly Hills 90210 biggest couple was good. Donna should have repapered one more time to make sure the fans know she and David were doing great. The new show on CW was terrible!
