Kat’s joined this week by guest co-host Kim Hoffman, and #1 fan of “the Dylan show,” Stephanie Hamper. Stephanie supports the podcast on Patreon—the subscription being a Valentine’s Day gift from her husband; swoon—and identifies as a Cindy. Stay tuned after the outro if you want to hear about toothbrush pyramid schemes from a dental professional. In addition to being passionate about Mel Silver’s representation as Beverly Hills, 90210’s resident oral surgeon, Stephanie is a mom who wants to spread the word about pediatric stroke. Learn more, and consider making a donation to support the Children’s Hemiplegia and Stroke Association, in honor of Stephanie’s daughter Sarah.
Also discussed in this episode, the infamous VMA pairing of Milton Berle and RuPaul.
Kat’s joined this week by Pam Myers, whom she and Lizzie first met at a concert featuring performances by Color Me Badd and Kid ‘n Play. She previously appeared on The Blaze for the Beverly Hills, 90210 season four episode “The Time Has Come Today,” and last week’s BH90210 Patreon exclusive recap episode. They’re interviewing Joanna Wilson, the world’s—or, at least, the internet’s—foremost expert on Christmas episodes of television series, whose works on the subject include the “Christmas TV History” podcast and blog, and a number of encyclopedic books.
We’re reeling from the rave-turned-lesbian-house-fire, and so are Kelly and Steve. Luckily, we’re joined again by Julia Cunningham, morning DJ on SiriusXMU, and soon-to-be-cohost of the new entertainment interview series The Jess Cagle Show. Charitable organizations discussed on this episode: Kids in Need of Defense, RAICES. Listen to Julia’s previous episode, season three’s “Back in the High Life Again.”
Well… it happened! Steve Sanders Management has spent the past two decades working to get a reboot or reunion of Beverly Hills 90210 on the air, and a miniseries starring the original cast playing fictionalized versions of themselves has finally premiered. We live-tweeted the premiere episode of BH90210, and were joined for immediate reactions afterwards by Santina Muha, Kim Hoffman, and Mickey Keating.
Be sure to keep up with our live tweets of the West Coast airings of the rest of the series for the next five weeks, 9pm Pacific Time on Fox! Podcast recaps for the episodes will be available for Patreon supporters at the “Les Wildcats” level and above! And if you want to share your reactions or viewing experiences, please send them to us! Our journey through season five of the original series will resume on Monday with the episode “Injustice for All” providing a continuation from the cliffhanger of the previous episode’s lesbian house fire!
We can hardly believe that it's finally here... this Wednesday, August 7—29 years after the premiere of Beverly Hills, 90210, and 19 years after its conclusion—the miniseries reboot, BH90210, will premiere on Fox. We'll be live-tweeting the West Coast premiere at @90210blaze, and releasing our next full-length episode the next day, covering the reboot premiere with some ~friends of the show.~ Recaps of the further episodes of the reboot will be found on our Patreon, and our journey through season 5 of the original series will resume next week! 🤜🤜
