The “90210” redo is sort of working for The CW, so they decided to bring back another show from the dead: “Melrose Place.” A spokeswhore for The CW confirms to Michael Ausiello that they are indeed working on an update of MP for next fall. Sydney, crawl out of your grave, you’re needed at Melrose Place.
Before I start busting nuts through my ass, I need to think about this. If they brought back the old bitches, they would have to call this shit “Melrose Retirement Community,” so I’m assuming the cast will mostly be new and young whores. I’m not sure how I feel about that. I’m already having a hard time feeling love for the new “90210” youngins.
However, I would die and fall into Megan Lewis coma if they brought back Amanda, Kimberly and Sydney. They would have to bring back Sydney from the dead, pay Heather Locklear a shit load of cash and get Marcia Cross to leave a “respectable” acting job. Yeah, it’s not going to happen.
With our luck, we’ll be stuck with Jane Mancini, Jake Hanson, Taylor McBride and Billy Campbell. All the boring ones!
Why ruin a good thing? Instead, The CW should try and remake shows that never really got their shot. I’m talking about “Models Inc.,” “Pacific Palisades,” “CPW” and “2000 Malibu.” Oh shit! 2000 Malibu Road!
Sometimes, I wake up in the middle of the night thinking whatever happened to Jennifer Beals‘ character! I mean, the show ended with her practically dying in a stairwell and we never learned her fate. And did Tuesday Knight’s character ever recover from being struck by lightning?! I need answers! Bring back 2000 Malibu Road! But leave Drew Barrymore out of it. Opening credits below:
