"Might be looking for a 1 bedroom apartment at 4616 Melrose Place"
8 October 2003 | by Totallyrad80See all my reviews

I remember watching the first episode (which was 90 minutes long) and remember all these people I never heard of (with the exception of Grant Show and Courtney Thorne Smith) and I liked it when it first came on with all the adventures that these 20 something year old characters. They didn't have money like "Beverly Hills 90210". They were adults making their lives. And it was typical like having a gay character (Matt which they never did much with) and a token black (Rhonda), all in this gang but it was interesting. I did like Sandy (Amy Locane) and I wish they kept her on as they can, because I did like Jo (Daphne Zuniga), then came along Amanda (Heather Locklear, an almost ageless beauty) who was cunning and shrew with almost all the characters. I loved Jane (Josie Bissett) and I was upset when her mean sister, Sydney (Laura Leighton), did all these things to her (I could never to that to an older sibling and get away with what she did). But it was good. It was the show to watch but it did get boring about how many times could Billy (Andrew Shue, a good looking but a BAAAAD actor) and Allison would get back together. I was glad that Allison put him out of her life and get together with Jake for a while. But I like the issues they had such as childhood abuse and alcoholism that Allison faced. But it was an interesting show. I like Kimberly (Marcia Cross) who went through heaven and earth to be with Michael (Thomas Calabro), only to find him someone after she died. That was sad. But then there was Brooke (Kristin Davis) who I liked as this spoiled little rich girl who snagged Billy away from Allison, married him and made all these mistakes but to wind up falling into the pool. (Anytime they had a cast photo by the pool, they all were there except for Brooke). But I also like Richard, (Patrick Muldoon) till he raped Jane, which was good that Jane was this strong minded character and became obsessive with Jake because of that. But when Taylor (Lisa Rinna, probably the best lips job in Hollywood) came on she spiced it up. Now Billy found love with Samantha (Brooke Langton) and Taylor was that warped lady obsessed with Peter (Jack Wagner). Since Taylor was so evil, she became my favorite. I liked the way she stood up to that she devil Sydney (who took an interest to Kyle (Rob Estes) and made her take her favorite painting out of her restaurant and auction it off. Taylor did wrong to Kyle, but Kyle was wrong by sleeping with Sydney before he found out about her affair with Peter. But the best was there was no more Sydney, because she was so annoying. It was good for a little time more but it was no more the same except for Lexi (Jamie Luner) who did things against Amanda and I always loved that last scene she had with Michael, who wanted to marry her in the pool and she turned him down and told him "You deserve better" - a man who did evil from the second season on could not meet his match. All this drama going on in 1 building or by a beachhouse I would definitely take a residency as a single person.
