Melrose Place / メルローズプレイス始動か?

Recently, I’ve been obsessed by 80s and 90s stuff, music and TV drama series, and movies(oops, movies what I’ve been watching were not 80s or 90s…it’s 60s! hahaha:P)

In music, I’ve been listening to are early late 80’s through early 90’s hit songs, such as Guns n’ Roses,Wilson Phillips,Kylie Minogue,Mariah Carey,Whitney Houston,Jamiroquai,so and so. I’ve been also listening to 80s and 90s Japanese Pop music also.

Today, I wanted to talk about one of my favorite show back in 90’s. It’s “Melrose Place“.
I started watching the 1st season by DVD again.

“Melrose Place” was created by Darren Star, who is well known by “Sex and the city” director, and produced by the super producer Aaron Spelling, who’s Tori’s dad. I bought this series because that was my favorite TV series when I was in Japan…, but the middle of the seaoson 7 or something, that show got canceled…I remembered it was awkward ending.

Last year, E! Online reported due to “90210” sucess, there’s possibility of a new Melrose Place starts soon.

One of my blog followers also announced the CW and CBS are now working on this remake show. So I’m kinda looking forward to seeing it though.

メルローズプレイスってドラマ知ってますか?
ビバリーヒルズ高校白書』のスピンオフ版としてスタートした、メルローズのアパートの住民たち中心に起こる様々な出来事を描いたドラマで、1992年から1999年まで放送されていました。日本でも、私はWOWOWで大学生の頃、母親と一緒に欠かさず見ていたものですw
ディレクターはあの”Sex and the City“で有名なダレン・スター。今年の秋にリメイク版が遂に始まる?とのことで、またまた盛り上がってきた今日この頃。

今考えると当時のキャストって今じゃ超有名になった人達ばかり!

マーシャ・クロスはドクターキンバリー役で出演しており、最後は精神病に架かってしまい、殺人などを起こしたり、みんなのアパートを爆弾で爆発させたり気が狂った悪魔のようなキャラ。
今じゃ、『デスパレートな妻たち』のブリー役で大人気。
ゲイのマット役をやっていたダグ・サヴァントも、マーシャ同様、『デスパレートな妻たち』のトム役で出演しています。メルローズの時のゲイ役に比べて、今は3人の子供たちの父親役。こっちの方があってる感じ。。。
お嬢様ブルック役にはクリスティン・デイヴィスが。『Sex and the City』シャーロット役で人気を得ました!
他にも、お~っ!て思う俳優がたくさん出演しています。

DVDを見て、今と昔(ビフォアーアフター系w)を見比べられるので面白いです。

Melrose Place 2.0 が待ちきれない~~~

    I haven’t watched Melrose since quite some time, I think I might rent the dvds before the new show start off.I really hope Courtney Thorne-Smith (Allison) comes on the new show because she was my favorite.ps: Actresses in the 60’s were hot and classy (i.e Sophia loren, Patricia Neal lol)

    I loved every character when I was watching this show. Marcia Cross was always interesting to watch, and also, Heather Locklear. Alison is likable character. So I could understand why you like her. *Actresses in the 60’s were hot and classy part, Yes,I AGREE!;)
