Question
hey, i was wondering if you could tell  me how old the characters are from the start of the show (1st season) to the end (10th season). also, were they juniors in the first season? cuz in the pilot, brenda tells jason she is a junior, but that would mean repeating junior year since they graduate in season 3.

Answer
Hi Kayla,

Yes, they were all Juniors in the Pilot and throughout Season One, except for David and Scott, who were Freshmen.  Then they do indeed repeat Junior Year in Season Two, which allows David to catch up a bit and be just one year behind the gang (and graduate with his friends in Season Three after taking on a lot of extra coursework).  The series basically covers the ages of 16 to 25 (15-24 for David).  

Thanks for the question!

All the best,

Mel

Can Dylan solve quadratic equations? What makes up a "mega-burger"? If an answer exists, I probably know it. Whether your question is general, begging the context of all 10 seasons, or completely inane, feel free to drop me a line either way. I will provide episode reference numbers for each response and plan to have some fun with this. Trivia quizzes often need correction, and publications will get their plotlines/characters/relationships mixed up too. I accept dialogue/scene requests, but please limit your inquiry to 1-2 per question. I only know music from the original broadcasts/reruns, not the DVDs. Been a fan since 1990 and didn't miss a beat.

Experience

Well, I began watching "Beverly Hills, 90210" at the tender age of 9 and a half, during its original run. By 11, I was a huge fan; 13, obsessed; 14, growing bitter. I don't like S6 - S10 as much as Seasons 1 - 5. But, technically, I still watch all of them in some way. Do this for 20 years and you'll remember the darndest things.

Education/Credentials
I'd like to say I've earned a "degree" on the life and times of the original eight, with specific concentration on Seasons 1 thru 5, any Jack McKay drama, Dylan/Kelly together or apart, and the guest stars of 1992-1994. Season 4, I think, was the best and strikingly different from any other. My only weakness might be later-season 'stand-in' characters like Matt and Noah, and the ever-changing ownerships of The AfterDark.
