Admittedly, I was thrilled to read Entertainment Weekly's dishy interview with Shannen Doherty and Jennie Garth about their reunion on the set of the new 90210. It's a great flashback to the love triangles and backbiting of the earlier series, and it helps explain why the two of them have decided to reunite on the new show.
But it also got me thinking again: Is it a bad thing that when 90210 lands on the cover of EW, it's because of its old cast members and not its new ones? I actually asked executive producer Gabe Sachs about that back at TCA, and he said they'd take publicity any way they could get it, even if it came in the form of buzz about the old cast. That will work for a while, I'm sure — but can it turn the series into a hit?
What do you think? If you're planning to watch 90210, are you watching for the new folks or for the vintage flashbacks?
