Melrose Place (2009)
Excellent show and worthy sequel to the original
i really enjoyed melrose place in the 90s, same as beverly hills. i think the cast of the new melrose place is great, because they are about the same age as the original cast, unlike this "supposedly sequel-ish" 90210, which in my eyes has quite nothing to do with the original. seriously, high-school students? beverly hills was about young professionals and their lives, so 90210 is a no-go for me.
it's nice to see that in melrose place at least, young professionals still are in the center, with the addition of the old characters such as michael mancini and amanda woodward. the drama is still here: they face problems with their jobs, love life, friendships, there's issues with money, intrigues, lies and much more, which i liked so much about the original. i really loved it when amanda returned in episode 10 and can't wait to see her meeting michael and later-on jo and jane. up to now, not much has developed yet (since we only have 10 episodes so far), but as it looks right now, things are expected to heat up at ep. 11 and further ones, so don't miss the show.
what i don't like is the almost constant use of contemporary pop-music tracks in the background, it's sometimes just too much, i mean i'm watching a TV-show and not MTV. it's bearable and won't get me stopping watching this show, but if some of the CW-people reads this, please think about that, i think i'm not the only one being a little annoyed by this.
