Beverly Hills 90210 - Season 5
Television producer extraordinaire Aaron Spelling launched a pop-culture phenomenon with his 1990s teen soap opera Beverly Hills 90210, a landmark series that not only set the standard for '90s teen culture, but single-handedly wrote the rulebook for later shows like Dawson's Creek and The O.C. Created by Darren Star, the glitzy series chronicles the coming-of-age dramas of Minnesota siblings Brandon (Jason Priestley) and Brenda Walsh (Shannen Doherty) as they adjust to their new affluent surroundings, where they attend the fictional West Beverly High with a tight-knit group of teenage friends: good-natured jock Steve Sanders (Ian Ziering); brainy good-girl Andrea Zuckerman (Gabrielle Carteris); naive virgin Donna Martin (Tori Spelling); aspiring DJ David Silver (Brian Austin Green); blonde siren Kelly Taylor (Jennie Garth); and troubled bad-boy Dylan McKay (Luke Perry). Like its Canadian counterpart Degrassi Junior High, the series attempts social commentary by crafting storylines that feature a wide range of issues affecting '90s youths, including alcoholism, drug abuse, sex, and depression. Groundbreaking and iconic, 90210's fifth series is presented here in its entirety.
