    The only time I laughed with pleasure last night--as opposed to hooting derision or abashed guffaws--was when Tabitha/Walter delivered the best line of the episode for anyone who loves L.A.: ''I'm gonna call Dan Tana's for some takeout!''

    It was simply a blah variation on "Beverly Hills, 90210," which lasted a decade on Fox.

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Laura Fries

    Sticking absurdly close to the same formula as the original, down to the opening theme and the filming style, the new version lacks that same sense of wonder and awe that Beverly Hills decadence and excesses once held over viewers.

  • Matthew Gilbert

    90210, the CW remake that premiered last night, is pretty bad.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Marisa LaScala

    For the most part, 90210 seems unsure what to do with the Gen-X demographic, fitting in an awkward assortment of teachers, guidance counselors, and big sisters alongside the kid stars.

  • Verne Gay

    The show juggled a lot of storylines last night, maybe too many, but the vibe feels right. "90210" is not a disaster, and the CW can now officially let out a deep ... sigh ... of relief.

    Well, it wasn’t “Masterpiece Theatre,” and it wasn’t outright terrible.

  • Misha Davenport

    Where the original show used to be a leader, so far the spinoff is a follower.

    The truth is it really isn't so horrible after all.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Alan Sepinwall

    Neither trainwreck nor masterpiece, the new "90210" was exactly what nobody expected it would be: remarkably faithful in tone and spirit to the original adventures of Brandon, Brenda, Scott Scanlon and company.

  • Adam Buckman

    Nothing surprised me enough, while watching 90210, to blurt out, "Oh my God!" but hey, I'm not as easily surprised as a 15-year-old from Kansas.

    It's not a great show but it's not a terrible teen drama, not by a long shot.
