If you're addicted to drama-filled shows like Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill , and 90210, make sure you make room in your fall TV viewing schedule for Melrose Place! Starting in September, be sure too get all of your homework done early on Tuesday nights because once you see the first episode there's no way you'll let yourself miss one second of this new show!
I've only watched the first episode and I'm already on the edge of my seat dying to find out what is going to happen next! Within the very first few minutes of the show you'll be captivated by a world of drama, romance, mystery, and gossip. Not only will you be mesmerized by the shows twisting plotline, but I have a feeling you are all going to fall in love with the cast too!
If I'm going to talk about the cast, I have to start out by saying that the guys on the show are hot! I fell in love with Jonah, played by Michael Rady, (he played Kostas in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants movies!) from the moment that his character was introduced and he is easily my favorite!
Then there is Auggie, played by Colin Egglesfield (you may have seen him in Gilmore Girls and Must Love Dogs), who is quite attractive but loses his appeal when you find out that he might be right in the middle of some dirty drama (that is unless, you go for the bad boys).
And if Jonah and Auggie don't satisfy your eye-candy craving (I don't know how they couldn't!) then there's David, played by Shaun Sipos, (you might recognize him from an episode of Smallville) who could easily make any girl melt with one look (plus he has amazing messy blonde hair).
Ashlee Simpson Wentz also stars in the show as Violet. Her character is very mysterious and you won't learn much about her from the first episode but I got the vibe that she is going to become a key character in future episodes!
Lastly, I have to mention that I feel an awesome soundtrack coming on from this show! Throughout the episode I found myself tapping my foot to songs by Lady Gaga, Matt Nathanson, Ciara & Justin Timberlake, Flo Rida and The Killers (just to name a few).
So what do you guys think? Are you excited about Melrose Place? Do you think it will be your new favorite TV show? I can't wait to hear from you guys!
