It is fairly entertaining and the actors are pretty... but....
All the boys and girls look like they are from the same modeling agency and most of them look much older than 16. Yes, the kids get into trouble and face difficult situations, but everything seems somehow exaggerated and clichéd.
The greatest thing about the initial show was that the teens could relate to the characters and their problems. I do not see how someone can relate to the new crowd. Maybe I am just getting old, though.
I think that the show's cast would better fit some TV show about models or actors in their mid twenties (not Kansas-born and LA teenagers).
Overall, the show is watchable provided that one does expect it to be the same cultural phenomenon as the initial Beverly Hills 90210.
