Melrose Place was fantastic. It exceeded my expectations, I thought I would be disappointed like I was with 90210 and it blew me away, really smart to hire an Oscar winning director to direct the show. Even Ashlee Simpson, who is usually an AWFUL actress, was not as bad as I thought she was gonna be, but that was due to smart editing, they focused more on Stephanie Jacobson, who was brilliant in her role as was Thomas Calabro who was great with his subtle cyncism, Laura Leighton doing manipulative brilliantly while adding a touch of humour, Shaun Sipos was also great, as was Michael Rady, they were all on point and sharp with their acting, and this comes from an actor who has studied and performed in theatre my entire life (me). I'm VERY nitpicky when it comes to seeing acting mistakes, I can't even watch Ghost Whisperer because of the atrocity that is Jamie Kennedy, but Melrose? Just brilliant, brilliant acting, brilliant cinematography, music, 10 stars.
