    Beverly Hills 90210 | 29

    When the Aaron Spelling show Beverly Hills, 90210 debuted on the Fox Network in September 1990, it was panned by TV critics who called it shallow and stereotypical. Some predicted it would be cancelled before the end of the season.
    Instead, the show went on to dominate the TV landscape for the rest of the decade and along the way redefined the teen drama genre.
    On this episode of History of the 90s, host Kathy Kenzora looks at how Beverly Hills, 90210 went from the bottom of the ratings barrel to an international pop culture phenomenon.
    Guests: Tara Ariano and Sarah D. Bunting, co-hosts of the podcast: Again With This: Beverly Hills, 90210 & Melrose Place and co-authors of the book: A Very Special 90210 Book: 93 Absolutely Essential Episodes from TV’s Most Notorious Zip Code

Brings me back!

One of my favorites. I was super young in the 90s; this podcast gives me insight to many stories that I vaguely remember and definitely didn’t understand.

A trip back with a great storyteller and journalist.
