Will Melrose Place Be Saved?

My new guilty pleasure, Melrose Place, has long been on the hopping block and been at the risk of being cancelled.  They tried to turn things around by firing the non-actress Ashlee Simpson, but made a mistake by also letting Colin Egglesworth go with her.

But Dr. Michael Mancini himself, Thomas Calabro, told E!'s Mark Malkin that he feels as if Melrose Place will triumph since internationally the show is a hit.  We must also remember that the original MP almost didn't make it, but Heather Locklear saved that show.  Is it possible she will be able to do the same to this one?

The Sydney murder mystery dragged on throughout the first half of the season before blowing up tremendously at the very end.  And what a payoff it was, for me at least.  The twist was something I didn't see coming at all, and the resurection of Jo, Jane, Amanda, and Michael fan-freaking-tastic. 

Calabro also hinted at a reunion episode that would bring all of the MP alumni together in one scene.  I don't know about you, but I suggest giving this nighttime soap a gander.  Sure it was dark and seemed very serious in the beginning, but reports are that when MP returns, it will be a lot lighter and have more humor.  Plus, how fun is it to see all the character's we loved to hate from the 90's?  Still hoping that Kimberly shows up with a bomb again.  That was the best season finale ever!  Is anyone on the MP boat with me or would you rather it hit an iceberg and sink quickly?

Now if we can get them to renew Life UneXpected.

Ashlee may not be a great actress, but I think she nailed creepy Violet and I'm kind of sad to see her go.
