As I noted last night, "Melrose Place" (90s version) can now be streamed online at Netflix.
I was up until two in the morning watching.
I started with one episode in season four just for a taste. I didn't remember the episode. I missed it before. But I knew the episodes around it. So I could follow it. And Sydney (Laura Leighton) was so great. It was the episode where Antonio Sabato Jr. dies (he's playing Amanda's husband -- her evil and abusive husband). And Sydney has a tape and saw Amanda struggle with the 'comatose' husband. So Syd just knows everything's going to work out for her.
Of course it doesn't. Michael ends up buring the tape. Amanda gives her 1/2 the money she receives as the widow (which ends up being 50 cents) and Peter just attacks her verbally.
On top of that Michael's trying to sleep with Jane.
Josie Bisset looked so good until the last episode I watched. Then she cut her hair short. She never looked good like that, someone should have told her.
Allison was getting drunk, becoming a widow, having Billy save her. Brooke was finding out she wasn't really pregnant. Jake had a girlfriend (Shelly) who was stealing from him. And Jo stabbed Jane in the back by taking off with Jane's ex-fiancee and returning with him and rubbing the relationship in Jane's face.
I always hated Jo.
She was the whinest and she reminded me of another Jo I always hated, Jo on "Facts Of Life."
Kimberly was a radio talk show host. She was also flirting with a guy at Jake's bar. Turns out that guy was the crazy caller who kept phoning in to her show.
Matt got a boyfriend. I fastforwarded. I was ready to go to sleep and just wanted to see Syd drug Jane's drink, Michael leave the big party to go off to a bedroom with Jane, them to get semi-naked and Jane to pass out leaving Michael to scream for help when he realized she had no pulse.
So Brooke, Amanda and all the other stuff got fast forwarded through.
Even so, I was up until two. I watched at least five (maybe six) episodes.
And I had to tell myself, "You're done. Turn off the computer."
I could have watched ten more and just called off from work. Maybe I should have?
Going out with C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
