From a pregnancy scare and a troubled girlfriend to a cameo by Color Me Badd, Beverly Hills 90210's sophomore year demonstrates why this was "the greatest TV show in history with a zip code in its title." This is the season that catapulted 90210 from Most Likely to Succeed to BSOF (Best Show on Fox). Certainly, it was must-see viewing for teens who anxiously tuned in each week to vicariously chart the serial adventures of siblings Brenda and older brother Brandon, recent transplants from Minnesota to glitzy Beverly Hills.


Season 2, one of the best in this series' decade-long run, is one for the time capsule, with episodes and story arcs that loom large in the 90210 phenomenon, among them: Brenda's tempestuous on-and-off-again relationship with soulful bad boy Dylan, causing rifts between her and her increasingly disapproving parents; new girl Emily Valentine going all Fatal Attraction on Brandon (no rabbits are boiled but a homecoming float is in jeopardy); Kelly, hooking up with Melrose Place-bound Jake, and Donna in her mermaid Halloween costume. 041b061a72
