'90210' returns to Torrance High School. Better known to us as Sunnydale High School, as the New York Post article reminds us.

Let's hope they don't plan any explosions at 3 o'clock in the morning. (And that Shannen Doherty gets turned into a fish monster.)

Shannen Doherty IS a fish monger's wife monster!:-)
*blinks* That's my picture of Torrance High School illustrating that article.
I dunno...It is really hard for me to see this as anything other than Sunnydale High. I don't like that another show is using it, LOL.

I didn't even realize Torrance High was used in the original 90210 until it was mentioned on a Buffy commentary. Oh well, Torrance High will always be Sunnydale High to me. :)
I don't have a clear enough memory of the high school years of 90210 (didn't watch much of it), was it shot a lot differently than the way Buffy did it ?

Maybe there weren't many options, but since 90210 happened before Buffy, you'd think they'd've wanted to avoid comparisons and use another school.
Never watched 90210 but it's always a strange feeling when I remember how close to Torrance high I lived, as a kid. If my family hadn't moved to another town when I was twelve, I would have gone to High School there.
