Come Back to the Five and Dime, Tori Spelling, Tori Spelling

So Fox held itself a Sweeps-inspired reunion special for seminal teen-angst series Beverly Hills 90210 to celebrate its lasting mark upon our cultural landscape and for paving the way for other angsty teen series like Dawson's Creek and Felicity and Oz. And while many of the former cast members appeared on the show -- surprisingly, Gabrielle Carteris was available -- others were nowhere to be found. Chief among the no-shows was long-time TeeVee favorite Tori Spelling, who won the hearts of viewers everywhere with her oft-riveting portrayal of the sainted, virginal Donna Martin.

Land a role in "The House of Yes," I suppose, and the success goes right to your head.

I think I speak for everyone with even a passing familiarity with the Beverly Hills 90210 oeuvre when I say that a reunion special without Tori Spelling is like having no reunion special at all. That's like putting on a production of "Hamlet" without Hamlet. Or at least, without the lantern-jawed no-talent offspring of "Hamlet's" director.
