While the concept of remaking Beverly Hills 90210 never ceases to amuse us -- didn't The OC and Gossip Girl already do this? -- there's little doubt we'll be tuning in.
For those that are unsure about revisiting the zip code that made Luke Perry and Tori Spelling household names, however, we present three reasons to watch this Tuesday's series premiere:
- Shenae Grimes
- Jessica Stroup
- Oral Sex
Here's a look at the first two reasons, as Grimes and McCord - who portrays Annie Wilson and Naomi Clark, respectively - posed for pictures at the 90210 premiere party last week:
As for the third reason listed above, no, Antonella Barba isn't guest starring on 90210.
But Shannen Doherty was recently asked by Entertainment Weekly how the new show differs from the original. She said the goal of The CW was to present realistic teenage behavior, which has changed dramatically from the era of Brenda Walsh saving herself for Dylan McKay at the spring fling.
"All I know is there’s a girl giving a guy a blow job in the first episode,” Doherty said.
In other words: if Aaron Spelling wasn't already rolling over in his grave from Dean and Tori: Inn Love, the original series creator is doing somersaults down there now.
