Melrose Place was my fave show from the age of 13 and I loved it. The first 4 seasons were by far the best, (I remember wacthing the reruns on TV in the summer, I was that hooked!) Alot of people said the final three seasons were less than thrilling, but I have to disgaree, at least with this particular season 5. It's amazing really, that was as fans can catch up on the final 3 seasons that some of us may have missed out on and it's like "new" to us who stopped halfway through the series. Season 5 is one fast paced, jaw dropping sultry season ! If anything this season did it's best to introduce new charaters that had real chemistry with the original cast. Jane's stories were really interesting to see play out, especially seeing Sydney and her finally become allies and friends. Samantha is a breath of fresh air, and it was cool seeing the softer side of Peter show while trying to ballance his life out. I heard V.2 will have a few more departing faves, but at least we can enjoy seeing their final scenes and... hopefully... if the final season is released see the re-appearance of Jane to help finish off one of the best Prime Time Serials in Pop Iocn history !
