I’ve been re-living my Melrose memories by watching the first season of MELROSE PLACE on DVD. So far I’m about five episodes in, and boy did I forget how painfully bad the show was B.A. (Before Amanda). Jake secretly trying to pass his High School equivalency exam, Jane lying to Michael about being pregnant, Matt working in at underfunded youth shelter, Billy trying to make it as a writer and of course Allison trying to make it as an Ad Exec. Seriously folks, early Melrose Place is a prime example of ‘so bad it’s good’ (or at least funny). Watching Andrew Shue ‘act’ is almost as much fun as the show itself. I can’t wait until I get to the episode were Billy learns from Rhonda about racism! Cue NBC music ‘The More You Know….”
I’ve been re-watching FELICITY from the beginning on the W Network (my first time watching FELICITY). I’m in the mist of the final season, and all I can say is could this fourth season be anymore of a downer? How many more times do I have to watch Felicity and Ben try and save their dying relationship. Every-time they are in a scene together, their sad piano theme plays in the background, completely sucking any energy out of the show. Let’s hope the series final batch of episodes is more exciting than the first half of the season and that depressing piano theme is put to rest.
CBS’s freshman sitcom, THE CLASS is growing on me. What started off as a perfect example of yet another unoriginal generic three camera sitcom is slowly evolving into a show worthy of following in HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER’S footsteps. This week’s Thanksgiving episode was perhaps the series funniest episode yet, thanks to the appearance of Yonk’s daughter (better known as ‘Shrek’) and a guest starring turn by THE COMEBACK’S funniest hairdresser ever Robert Michael Morris. Any show that casts an alum from THE COMEBACK is all class in my books.
