The more I look back on pop culture from the ’90s, the more I want to set fire to my memories of adolescence. For a couple years, before Shannen Doherty left and all the characters graduated and went to the same college (because that’s what high school friends do), “Beverly Hills 90210” was THE television show for young people to watch. And it was crap. Utter crap.
Watch this video if you don’t believe me. I’m 100% positive that Color Me Badd was the result of a music executive betting someone that he could take the four ugliest guys with decent pitch and make them into a pop sensation. Their entire existence was a practical joke on pop culture. And “90210” fell for it.
