The new Melrose? has no ambitions other than to divert and titillate viewers. And it does that well.

It seems a statement of the obvious to call the new Melrose trash, but a reviewer must observe certain formalities.

It's still not good, mind you, but it's more honest and enthusiastic about its badness, you know?

Let me just say what a pleasure it is to watch deliciously sleazy drama performed by professional actors, instead of the amateurs on "reality" shows.

And so I "like" the new Melrose Place, in that I think it has the potential to be as addictive, and phony, as a can of Pringles potato crisps.

This one is stylish, smartly produced and has a very appealing cast. Fans will fall in love all over again.
