It’s been a while since we last inducted a classic TV show into our Remote Patrolled Hall Of Fame, so I thought it was time to select another honoree – and this time around it’s one of my favorite slices of soap opera silliness, Melrose Place!
I am of course referring to the ORIGINAL Melrose Place, which ran from 1992 – 1999 on Fox, NOT the dreadful CW remake from last year. Boy, was that a misfire in every way. Shot like a music video with a non-stop soundtrack and with a far too young cast, Melrose 2.0 was everything the original wasn’t – charmless, over-calculated and bland.
But oh how I loved the original Melrose. At the time I was still living in England when the show hit and had to catch episodes on Sky One in the UK, a minimally watched cable network which insured that Melrose never really took off in Britain the way it did overseas. I think I was one of the few people following the show, so I couldn’t exactly discuss the plotlines around the watercooler! And of course this was in the pre-internet age…
