What's up bitches?
So today, marks the Day 1 of 90's week here @ The House, and oh what fun we'll have too.
But first, I just have to brag about what I got last Saturday from my local comic shop.
-ML Sabertooth for only $10
-ML Beta Ray Bill for $25
-DCUC Gorilla Grodd for only, get this, $10!!!!!
Yes only 10 big ones.
Plus some back issues I've been looking to add to complete certain runs, like Earth X, the Early 90's GL series, and a single issue of Fury Max, that concludes the very awesome Fury/Frank Castle Vietnam story-arc. Damn good!
So, today I'll briefly mention just two of a handful of shows I enjoyed watching back in the 90's: 90210 and Melrose Place.
90212 was the first of the two on the air, and the first one of the two I watched. Running from 1990-2000, the show was all about teen angst and the typical teen issues of the day.
It made household names out of Shannon Doherty, Luke Perry, Ian Ziering, Brian Austin Green, Tori Spelling, and Jason Priestly.
Was it cheap melodrama?
Hey, this shows wasn't brain surgery. It was a soap opera for teens in its purest form, and you either got it or you didn't, simple as that.
Amazing how co-creator Arron Spelling had his finger on the pulse of what the kids/teens would like despite being old as dirt even back then.
Ah Melrose Place:)
This is what the nighttime, adult-version of 90210 looked like.
Co-Created by Arron Spelling, and running from July of '92 to May of '99, Melrose Place was what you'd like your life to be if you were in your 20's or 30's and living wherever the hell they lived. California I guess.
Packed with plenty of steamy implied sex, betrayals, fights, twists and turns, and all the drama you could ever want in a hip young show, MP was the only real challenge to my continuous viewing of WWF's Monday Night Raw.
Oh and of course of because because of this sexy-ass blonde who'd show up in the 3rd season:
Yep, Heather F'N Locklear;)
She's the only other reason I stuck with the show as long as I did. Hey, anything for my woman;)
Both shows are back(kind of) with mostly all-new casts with the exception of one original.
Yes folks, apparently in television, just like in the movies and comics, everybody loves to bring back old shows and reboot them.
