Trivia: Beverly Hills 90210
  • Actor Allusion: Maeve Quinlan as the mother of a girl who dates another girl.
    • In one episode Dixon is given a fake ID with a Spanish name on it. Tristan Wilds is Hispanic.
    • Liam has a scene where he dresses as a vampire.
    • This is not the first time Jim would return from being lost at sea.
  • The Danza: Ryan Matthews is played by Ryan Eggold.
    • Riley is played by Riley Smith.
  • Dawson Casting: In the extreme, to the point where this trope is often called "90210 Syndrome" outside of this wiki, since the extremeness makes Dawson's Creek look like they cast age-appropriately.
    • Though there were some aversions (Brian Austin Green, Tori Spelling, Jennie Garth, and a few others), the straight examples were very extreme (Most infamous was Gabrielle Carteris who was twenty-nine when she started on the show).
  • Dye Hard: Silver is a natural blonde as shown in the parent shown, but is a brunette for the entirety of the series save for when she briefly dyed it red.
  • Executive Meddling: Season two drops Ethan and focuses a lot more on the new characters rather than the old cast. That's cleverly done for Kelly's mother's funeral as it's not shown and Silver comments that a lot of people that knew her but she didn't know attended.
  • Fake American: Shenae Grimes is Canadian.
  • Fake Brit: Blair Redford who plays Oscar is not British.
  • Fake Nationality: Michael Steger is a mix of several nationalities but Iranian(or anything Arabic) is not one of them.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: It seems Michael from The Wire did get a lucky break after all.
  • The Other Darrin: Rather than bringing back Mercedes Castner to play Silver, she was played by Jessica Stroup.
