For me, the end would have justified the means, had the show ended, which I know for many it did end here; but in reality it didn't end the show's run.
I really don't like the majority of the episodes in season 7 except for graduation day. I agree that Claire's character became increasingly annoying and I started disliking her. Further, the whole Donna "We Interrupt This Progam" scenario was just too painful to watch in reruns. If the major couples, David/Donna, Brandon/Kelly and Dylan/Brenda hadn't been together, it would have been just another horrendous season like 8, 9 , and 10.
I agree with sheerwill, there was no zip to the season. No stand out episodes. Sorry but it was subpar!
Actually, I didn't say anything negative about Season 7. LOL. I think you meant wilezrules.
I liked Season 7. I agree that most of the episodes weren't as "dramatic" as those of previous seasons but I still enjoyed them. The B/K reunion was spectacular and I anxiously await it everytime I watch Season 7. I really didn't start getting bored of 90210 until Season 8 came along. It became less entertaining without a school environment - whether it be high school or college. But Season 8 was still watchable for the most part and it would have been a good season if it ended with B/K married. Seasons 9-10 are a different story. EVERY episode in those two seasons is painful. I can honestly say that I didn't enjoy a single episode of the last 2 seasons. They were that terrible. Dylan himself was like a faux character, LOL.
