A More Sophisticated and Mature Melrose
14 April 2010 | by SeeBearSee all my reviews

My First Review

I'll be honest. I expected this show to be one giant laugh fest, which is the only reason I decided to tune in.

Boy was I surprised! What did I get?

1. Characters that were over-the-top, yet believably two-dimensional.

2. A Gorgeous cast that can actually, dare I say, act. Even Ashley Simpson's awkwardness works to create a character that is uncomfortably off-kilter. It was a shame to lose her so early.

3. Sumptuous- Absolutely beautiful sets with fantastic directing. Seriously, the camera angles alone absorb you into the story. They're so impressive and will sadly be overlooked by most.

4. Great writing and fantastic dialogue that will fill your quota of witty snap-backs for decades to come (courtesy of Ella Sims).

The phenomenal Katie Cassidy leads this ambitious Motley Crew and lights up the screen with her flawless performance. Her effortless charismatic charms and sharp wit hold your attention from beginning to end. Even when she's not involved in a storyline of her own you find yourself missing her whenever she's not on screen.

In this return to Melrose, the there's plenty of action and "Oh My God!" moments that mainly reside in the the dialogue and the ways in which the characters interact. It's a smart and more sophisticated version that doesn't lack for suspense and nail biting moments.

And although wackiness ensues, their exists a level of respect and caring among the residents that you rarely find in a series of this type. Amidst the amoral antics, it can be surprisingly uplifting; making it a rare bird indeed.

Of course, there's backstabbing, cat fighting, underhandedness (which is the typical order of the day), but the way the characters are fleshed out makes the impact of the tragedy that befalls them that much more affecting.

Melrose 2.0 is a rare underrated gem that is a hybrid in many ways. It's campy, suspenseful yet smart and implosive, which can often confuse and polarizes audiences. It has aspects of the original but, in many ways, is its own creation.

But if you don't mind taking the leap you will undoubtedly enjoy the smooth rush you get just being in the company of these wild sexy beast.
