Mr. Walsh Goes to Washington (2) - S4-E32

Trivia: This was Shannen Doherty's last appearance as Brenda. She wouldn't play the role again for almost fifteen years, when she appeared on the 2008 spin-off "90210".

Trivia: To avoid suspicions of nepotism (favoritism granted to relatives), since her father was an executive producer, Tori Spelling used the name "Tori Mitchell" at her audition.

Season 8 generally

Trivia: Hillary Swank's role was originally going to last longer than it did. She was written out after only sixteen episodes due to poor audience response to her character. This eventually ended up in Swank's favor: she was able to take the lead role in Boys Don't Cry, for which she won her first Academy Award.

Under the Influence - S5-E2

Trivia: This was the first of four episodes directed by Scott Paulin, who made guest appearances as Corey Randall, one of Brandon's professors at CU.

Show generally

Other mistake: When the show aired in 1990, in the pilot episode Brenda falls for Jason. She later on reveals herself to be a "16 year old junior" in high school. Season 2 opens up with the gang on summer break which technically would make them going into their senior year. It wasn't until Season 3 that they were going into their senior year. They graduated in 1993 from West Beverly but the show debuted in 1990 so technically they should have been sophomores.

Question: How did Steve and Janet end up with the Walsh house? I know that Steve was living there with Brandon once the Walshes moved to Japan, but once Brandon left, did they sell the house to Steve?

Chosen answer: I'm sure something like that happened. Brandon (always being the good and concientious friend) probably passed on the title so Steve could live in the house legally and if anything happened like a fire, would be there to take charge.
