A nighttime soap opera about the lives, careers, trials and tribulations of a group of young people living in an apartment building in the trendy neighborhood of Melrose Place. The show was a spin off of Beverly Hills 90210 and starred Heather Locklear as the scheming Amanda Woodward, head of her own advertising agency and owner of the apartment building.

I had just finished watching Melrose Place for the third time when I came upon this DVD 'Melrose Place.' The set is a step up from the old Melrose apartments-swankier and the apartments are gorgeous--not at all like the 'real' Melrose.
I really started getting into the story around the third tape but since there were only four tapes in this collection I wondered how on earth they would end it. Well I found out. You pretty much had to figure that out for yourself. Nothing was completely 'wrapped up-storyline-wise' but another dvd would have been better and gone further to close out each storyline.
It seems that this Melrose was not on TV but went straight to DVD. The previous actors who played in the original series - Michael, Amanda, Jane, Jo and Sydney made appearances but Michael was still a sex maniac and a rotten person all around (we kind of knew that from the old Michael). Amanda was the one with the most dialogue and the other 'oldtimers' were on the show...
UPDATE, May 19, 2011: After six months of waiting and complaining, I finally received this product, and I was pleasantly surprised. Even though it's manufactured on demand, it doesn't look much different from any other official DVD, and the image quality is great. I wish there were more special features than the 10-minute behind the scenes featurette... perhaps the creators of the show talking about what they would have done with the show on season 2, giving closure to some of the open-ended storylines?
This is my original 'review', describing the problems I had with delivery of this product. Be aware that many people living outside the US had the exact same problem, and although it's been fixed now, there is no certainty whether this could happen again to future orders.
ORIGINAL REVIEW: I ordered this DVD on November 4, 2010. It's March 14 and I still haven't received it. Amazon's online chat people have been unable to tell me why they haven't received it...
The show is a Camp has given way to noir, soap has morphed into mystery, and acting and dialogue have become more sophisticated while alcoholism, drug addiction, infidelity and even murder remain among the permanent residents of the fictitious 4616 Melrose Place. It's all brand new and shiny but comfortably familiar and keenly calculated. The pleasures abound within the walls of the new "MP," but be warned: You'll want to take a shower afterward.
The new Melrose Place may not be the old, but it is, all told, instantly engaging and--from the evidence--likely to remain so and This one is stylish, smartly produced and has a very appealing cast.
With murder, prostitution, blackmail and hot lesbians in just the first episode, it won't be long before that iconic swimming pool boils over. Innocence lost is always fun to watch, especially when it's this good-looking. Terrific fun, and much classier than the old show, but still with plenty of cheese.
