Same zip code, new attitude? Not sure if this is the worst idea of all time or just plain genius, but the CW is going ahead with a Beverly Hills, 90210 spinoff most likely written by Veronica Mars mastermind Rob Thomas. While I worship the brilliant but cancelled Veronica, do we really need an updated version of this cheesy-but-classic teen drama? Was there not another clever, or at least new, idea in Thomas's gifted brain just dying to get out? Will there be a new Brenda and Dylan or, ugh, will we be following the antics of Donna and David's offspring? I mean, it worked for Degrassi, but I'm cautiously skeptical about this whole prospect. If anyone can pull it off it is Thomas, but it still just seems like a blantant way to captialize on the success of Gossip Girl with something familiar (though do teens today even remember the original 90210?)
If this really does happen, one can only pray that a nearly 50-year-old Gabrielle Carteris doesn't show up trying to still play a hip and young teen. That would be just plain old depressing, I'm sure there's a nice open spot on Dancing With the Stars available for her instead. But if there is a god in this wild and crazy world... please, please let Enrico Colantoni run the Peach Pit. Please? I'm begging. He could dole out sage advice to the spoiled teens while slinging burgers and maybe he could even investigate some crimes on the side. It would be perfect I tell you. Perfect.
