For today’s Whatta Man Monday, I thought I’d tackle a topic I’m very passionate about.
Beverly Hills, 90210.
When 90210 first got really popular, my parents didn’t let me watch (although looking back now, I see why they didn’t) . It KILLED me to hear all my friends talking about it. And like all kids that are told “No”, I became totally obsessed. Once I was finally allowed to watch, I was hooked. I watched reruns, new episodes (can I just say I liked Tiffany Amber Theissen way better on Saved By the Bell?), and continued watching all the way to the series finale when Donna and David FINALLY got married.
And like any true 90210 fan, I know that a girl can’t love Brandon and Dylan both. Seriously, someone should’ve sent Kelly the memo because she sure took her sweet time making up her mind. I was a Brandon girl. Most of my friends loved Dylan, but he didn’t do it for me. His cheeks were too sunken in, his forhead too liney, and his moods too swingy. So this post is obviously going to be skewed in Brandon’s favor. Sorry.
Remember The Rules:
Read through the points about both of our featured favorites and carefully weigh the pros and cons. This is an important decision, after all. Then, sound off. Which is YOUR favorite? The winner will be announced at the end of the week and crowned Whatta Man of the Week.
Pros: Brandon Walsh was adorable (duh) hardworking, kind, and ambitious. He generally stayed out of trouble and tried to do the right thing. Also, he was the only reason I ever really liked Kelly very much.
Con: The whole Brandon/Andrea storyline. I mean really…we all know they were a horrible match.
Pros: Dylan McKay was a bad boy (which I guess can be exciting, if you like unreliability and moodiness). His sideburns were legendary and he also lived at a hotel, which means free room service for you!! Also, I will admit that the death of his wife Toni tugged at my heart. He seemed to really love her (after he got over the fact that he was using her to get to her dad).
Cons: The whole Dylan/Kelly relationship. They started off on the bad foot, living it up on the beach while Brenda was in Paris. And it just went downhill from there (I’ll never forget the Brenda and Kelly face off: “If it walks like a duck…”). I never really felt like he and Kelly belonged together, and wasn’t fully satisfied with how the two of them ended the series.
So there we have it. You know who has my vote. Who has yours?
I can’t wait to see the results of this one!!
