That Started it All

Just in time for Valentine's Day, CBS DVD and Paramount Home Entertainment release the first volume of the Melrose Place's fifth season. The highly successful spin-off of television mastermind Aaron Spelling's first '90s smash Beverly Hills 90210, Melrose Place became the most fascinating and steamy apartment complex in Los Angeles during its phenomenal run, earning legions of fans as characters came and went-- including season five's newest arrivals of Kelly Rutherford, Rob Estes, and Lisa Rinna to help heat things up along with the central cast Heather Locklear, Courtney Thorne-Smith, Doug Savant, Andrew Shue, Josie Bissett, Jack Wagner and Brooke Langton.

Following the "lives, careers, trials and tribulations of a group of young adults from various backgrounds," as "lying, cheating, stealing, seduction, backstabbing, betrayal, murder," and gossip of course became the recurring theme of of each and every day and season of Melrose Place, the four-disc set features all nineteen episodes clocking in at nearly fifteen hours from its '96-'97 season.

While it's been successful in syndication on channels like the SoapNet and highly influential on evening soap operas that followed, there will always be only one Melrose Place-- the show that Jerry Seinfeld failed a lie detector test into admitting he was addicted to on Seinfeld as the most sinfully guilty pleasure.

So this year, forget the chocolates, roses, and teddy bears and pick up some drama and romance as each episode in the slim-packaged case appears in its orginal 4x3 full-screen format complete with stereo surround and closed captioning for the hearing impaired.

And once you move in, you won't want to waste any time getting to know the neighbors!
