Melrose Place

Wow, four of the original Melrose cast members together in one episode. Not bad. And I'm glad the makers of the new Melrose Place are pulling out all the old tricks to keep from getting canceled. Residents of the building all sleeping together: check. Plenty of lies and tearful revelations: check. Double crosses and dodgy revenge schemes: check.

Hell, they're even willing to do not one, but two fights in the swimming pool in one season! I don't think even the original went that far. Although, neither of those fights held a candle to the glorious spectacle of Jane fighting Sydney in the pool while she's wearing their mother's wedding dress. (Click here for video of that.)
