It began as a spin-off of Beverly Hills, 90210, but this summer replacement quickly established its own unique identity. The connection is creator Darren Star and the character of Jake (Grant Show), who had a fling with Kelly (Jennie Garth) on 90210. In the pilot, she

stops by 4616 Melrose to pay a visit (and returns for two more episodes). Jake's neighbors comprise of Alison (Courtney Thorne-Smith), Rhonda (Vanessa Williams), Sandy (Amy Locane), Matt (Doug Savant), and married couple Michael (Thomas Calabro) and Jane (Josie Bissett). When Alison's roommate runs out on her, she takes in Billy (Andrew Shue) to cover the rent. Just as 90210 had the Peach Pit, the twentysomethings of Melrose gather at Shooters, where aspiring actress Sandy waits tables. Her roommate Rhonda teaches aerobics. Other professions include mechanic (Jake), receptionist (Alison), social worker (Matt), doctor (Michael), designer (Jane), and writer (Billy). Midway through the season, photographer Jo (Daphne Zuniga) and ad exec Amanda ("special guest" Heather Locklear) arrive to shake things up. What had been a program about work and life issues takes a darker turn as Michael gives in to temptation and Amanda sets out to ruin Alison's career--and her relationship with Billy.

Other troublemakers are waiting in the wings, like Michael's colleague Kimberly (Marcia Cross) and Jane's sister Sydney (Laura Leighton). Both return to stay in the second year. Melrose Place ran for seven increasingly soapy seasons and spawned the short-lived Models, Inc.. Afterwards, Thorne-Smith moved on to Ally McBeal and According to Jim, while Savant and Cross would eventually segue to Desperate Housewives. Other actors had a shorter stay at the infamous West Hollywood apartment complex-- notably, Locane, who makes her exit in the 13th episode ("Dreams Come True") and Williams, who makes hers in the 32nd (two-part season finale "Suspicious Minds"). --Kathleen C. Fennessy

"Melrose Place" is pure '90s excitement! Do you remember this super-cool 90210 spin-off? I sure do. I loved this show. Although, like many fans I didn't start watching until the mid-second season. When I used to watch repeats of the first season I never really enjoyed it. Because it was so different from the rest of the series (it's sorta like the difference between the first season of "The Facts of Life" compared to the rest of that series.) There were different characters and the stories were nowhere near over-the-top. There was no trashy sex or backstabbing. Although, now when I watch the first season I have a whole new fondness for this show. It's almost like looking at baby pictures of an old friend. She may have looked like an "ugly duckling" but I know that she's gonna turn out to be a knock-out!

I like to think of the first season of "Melrose" more as 3 mini-seasons. Because the entire first season is rather diverse and unique. I suppose the producers and writers (not to mention the actors and actresses) were still trying to find their way (i. e. make the show a hit,) which made them retool it more than once during that first faithful season. Let's see... There's the Sandy Era (Amy Locane,) which is the shortest of all season one's mini-seasons. This only lasted 14 eps (technically, 12 since the pilot is actually 1 ep and Sandy wasn't on the ep prior to her last one.) Then there's The Jo Reynolds (Daphne Zuniga) Era, which picks up right after Sandy leaves for NY (actually, 1 ep later.) The Jo Reynolds Era takes us through the end of '92 and the beginning of '93 which is also the start of the third and final season 1 mini-season.

Finally the best soap of all time released on dvd and the music has been replaced! So much of the power of this show was derived from its use of contemporary popular music, so this is a real shame. The show is still brilliant, but now the whole thing feels a bit low-rent. Who would want to hang out in Shooters if THIS is the garbage they play!

I remember the hype surrounding this show when it first aired and I remember staying glued to the television each Friday night to watch. It certainly lived up to the hype and it was always the talk around the water cooler.

The show is focused around the apartment complex of a group of 8 late 20 somethings and the lives they all lead. In the pilot we meet Alison Parker (Courtney Thorne Smith) who looks for a new roomate; enter Billy (Andrew Shue). There is also Michael Mancini (Thomas Calabro) the bad boy who is the building manager and a doctor. His wife Jane (Jossie Bisset) seems like a quiet demure girl - and owns her own clothing boutique. There is Matt Fielding (Doug Savant) who is gay with a best friend Rhonda (Vanessa Williams) and the gorgeous Jake Hanson (Grant Show) who we see trying to get rid of Kelly Taylor (where this spin off from 90210 begins) who he had been dating.

Through the years you see so many people come and go, and while this honestly is a trashy show, it's a trashy show in the good sense. It's adictive (you always want to know who is sleeping with who) and extremely soapy.

The first season of this show was pretty shaky, they were experimenting with some things that didn't really work too well and were promptly jettisoned. It was a bit like Beverly Hills 90210 in that they occasionally tried throwing some politically correct themes into the mix. I think they finally figured out that this show was attracting a slightly older audience than 90210, and preaching to them like they were a bunch of brainless teenyboppers wasn't going to work. Thankfully this stuff was completely abandoned and the ratings skyrocketed. Once it got going, I think the series was absolutely fantastic around the middle part of its run - those battles between Amanda and Allison were memorable, with poor Billy always stuck in between. The shenanigans between Jane and Sydney were always high in entertainment value as well. And when Kimberly blew up the whole apartment building, it was the season finale to end all season finales! But it went downhill towards the end. That god-awful Southern Belle Lexi and pathetic alcoholic Kyle really grated on a person's nerves.

Of course, this stuff all happens in later seasons. The first season is certainly quite watchable and entertaining. The main appeal comes from the fact that these people are beautiful yuppies, living in a glamorous apartment complex in LA, dating all the glamorous people and doing all those glamorous things that we all want to do. It wasn't completely over the top fantasy like Dallas or Dynasty, what these people had was actually achievable by the average person. In that fashion, it's the perfect escape for all of us folks who just live normal, less-than-glamorous lives.
