August 3, 2020
The premise of the original 90210 was that it was a zip code, a lifestyle, and a group of friends that audiences vied for and wanted to visit. But this? This is not a place to visit. This is a place where you avoid eye contact with the residents.

The premise has a chance to be disastrous, but it succeeds on pretty much every level.

BH90210 is the best kind of gratuitous fanporn.
November 8, 2019
The new series opted for a narrative twist that was proposed as a comic but that never captured the audience. [Full review in Spanish]

It's not Spinal Tap -- few things can be -- but BH90210 plays a daring dance, mixing mischief and nostalgia and, beautifully and unexpectedly, doesn't put too many feet wrong.
September 20, 2019
An entertaining, if slightly loosely scripted, eminently watchable offering that is at once self-parody and elements of Hollywood satire, with a smattering of inevitable melodrama.
September 12, 2019
BH90210 is meta and so very aware of itself - which is what makes it work. It's very obvious that the whole cast had fun making this! Looking forward to more!

The result is just smart enough to feel clever, just silly enough to feel relaxing, a guilty pleasure by design.
August 23, 2019
It's naval-gazing for anyone, but the really hardcore fans.
August 18, 2019
Even assuming that there's an audience that would rather see the actors playing themselves instead of their characters, BH90210 is too short on substance.
August 14, 2019
Meta reboot of teen soap is clever and self-aware.

I've seen what this show can do at its best, so I'm rooting for a strong finish.

"Meta" is the word used most to describe this strange take on a reboot, which in its very weirdness will have viewers-all of whom will be those that watched the original series when it aired in real-time.

August 9, 2019
The original 90210 cast reunites to play themselves in a fictional reboot of the '90s teen soap-a uniquely meta premise that, in practice, is less interesting than it sounds.
August 9, 2019
Destined to be the hottest show in my peer group? Probably not. Am I going to relax and keep watching? Absolutely.

You get the show within a show - plus the backstage dramas. Two soap operas in one!
August 7, 2019
There's nothing technically new under the sun with BH90210. But it nonetheless feels that way via this fresh approach to what easily could have been a very wrong address.

"The tone of BH90210 is legit wild."

August 7, 2019
BH90210 is more than just a nostalgia trip; it's genuinely funny and surprising, and the gang still has the same chemistry they had 30 years ago.
August 7, 2019
At its best, BH90210 zeroes in on the price of stardom, and especially has-been-dom... That part threatens to make "90210" kind of interesting, but of course, the producers don't really trust the audience to be looking for any level of seriousness
