It was reported last fall that due to the success of the new 90210 series that they would be developing a new Melrose Place. I’ve been looking forward to this ever since I read the article and the wait is finally over. The new Melrose Place pilot lived up to my expectations. It was filled with drama, mystery and hot new characters. Katie Cassidy who plays “Ella” is already a favorite, as she reminds me of “Amanda” played by Heather Locklear in the original series. Laura Leighton reprised her role as “Sydney” and my favorite line of the whole episode was when she said to Ella, “you would still be wearing Juicy sweat suits with French tips and have a bad dye job if it wasn’t for me”. Let the claws come out!
The one character I could have done without is “Violet” played by Ashlee Simpson-Wentz. I found her distracting and awkward. Aside from that, it was great and I’m hooked. I’ll be tuning in next Tuesday for sure. I hope they keep the momentum going and it will be just as juicy as it was in my teens.
Here are some more new fall shows that I’m looking forward to:
The Vampire Diaries - with True Blood coming to an end next week, I thought that I'd give this one a shot
Flash Forward - This show seems intrigiung from the promos.
Cougar Town - This show looks really funny.
What new fall shows will you be watching?
