90210 and now Melrose!



Ok, so don't get me started. First they re-do the O.C and call it Gossip Girl. Then they re-do Beverly Hills 90210 and call it 90210. Apparently it did well enough for CW to want to clone Melrose Place now too. Personally, I love seeing old shows from my youth re-done. But it got me wondering: is it healthy for teenagers to have all these regurgitated shows? Don't they need their own identity?

what do you think?

That's one of the dumbest posts I've ever read. Congrats. And eventhough its a show about rich goodlooking teenagers, Gossip Girl is very different from the OC. The show is based on the book series that came before the OC. Dumbass.

the comment above is so annoying,true i don't see GG as an OC ripoff although they have common elements, however i do regard 90210 as a GG..um well not rip-off but they have a huge amount of similarities. now melrose place...i wouldn't wanna see that, but i see these shows (90210 and the possible new MP) as completely new that are written to "fit" todays youth and teens (at least as far as i've seen from 90210)
