What is it that can make a random five-number sequence memorable though? Repetitious numbers certainly could do it, it is easy to remember repeating numbers.

That, of course, is all thanks to the massively popular TV show from the late 1990s, Beverly Hills 90210.
While memorable, it took a TV show to make it memorable.
