Interesting Drama... Too bad it didn't last too long.
20 March 2001 | by pdunn98See all my reviews

This wasn't the greatest show on television or was nowhere close to it, but "Pacific Palisades" will always hold a special place in my heart. It came out around the time FOX's other landmark dramas "Melrose Place" and "90210" were beginning to lose their steam. So it seemed PP would be the perfect addition to the lineup, well it unfortunately failed, and even Joan Collins couldn't save it. The show had many twists and turns through the course of the dozen or so episodes which aired. Luckily the series managed to wrap up all it's loose ends in the last episode, so it wouldn't leave viewers wondering what ever happened.... oh well, it failed... and it's long gone... but it made out as a great summer series.
