    15 Things You'll Only Understand If You Grew Up Watching "Beverly Hills 90210"

    Da-da da-da. da-da da-da. *claps two times*

    1. You got really excited when there was a new version of the opening credits

    Spelling Television/ Fox

    New season, new me.

    2. And you clapped along every time...

    Spelling Television/ Fox

    It so god damn catchy!

    3. You were either Team Brenlan or Team Dylly

    Spelling Television/ Fox

    OK, I just made those couple names up, but you definitely have an opinion on whether Brenda or Kelly should have ended up with Dylan. (But deep in your heart you know he should have ended up with Toni. Obvi.)

    4. Your expectations for high school and college were outrageously high because of the show

    Spelling Television/ Fox

    It turns out that neither high schools nor colleges are flooded with beautiful people in cutting-edge, fashionable outfits who are all lining up to date you. Only people in sweats trying to pass their exams... just like you.

    5. You definetly had a crush on Dylan at some point

    Spelling Television/ Fox

    He's just the ultimate bad boy with great hair, a killer smile, and (of course) a Porche. Everyone has to go through that stage in life.

    6. But once Dylan left the show, you turned your eye toward David...

    Spelling Television/ Fox

    While you were busy keeping an eye on Dylan, David went from being a nerdy student radio producer to a sexy nightclub DJ. Well done, puberty!

    7. You were extremely keen on getting one of those cool cell phones they were all carrying around!

    Spelling Television/ Fox

    A phone without a cord... WHAT KIND OF SORCERY IS THIS?!

    8. When Donna (finally) lost her virginity it kinda felt like you did too.

    If this sexy and yet cute scene didn't spark your sexual awakening, nothing will.

    9. You were extremely frustrated when you had to explain to non-fans which characters had been in a relationship with who.

    Spelling Television/ Fox

    Honestly, it's complicated!

    10. You've since contemplated how problematic the lack of diversity is...

    Spelling Television/ Fox

    Even though the zip code is predominantly Caucasian it's not like other races don't exist. I mean come on...

    11. You were heavily inspired by the outfits worn on the show — with varying success...

    Spelling Television/ Fox

    Some of the outfits just don't really translate all that well. Especially if you watched the show a couple of years after it aired, like me.

    12. You cried your eyes out when Donna's dog Rocky got cancer and died

    Spelling Television/ Fox

    I MEAN... WHAT THE HELL?! *blows nose into a tissue*

    13. The show taught you quite a few life lessons

    Spelling Television/ Fox

    Don't do drugs, don't drink and drive, and definitely don't throw a huge party at your parents' house where you encourage your friends to tear the place apart. Cindy will find out. And she will be disappointed.

    14. You still miss some of the truth bombs that were dropped on the show

    Spelling Television/ Fox

    The shade was real with this one...

    15. And most importantly of all, you learned that real friends will riot for each other...
