These People Must Be Stopped
Seriously, The CW, that's enough. Just stop. Do not pass go, do not collect $200, and do not, under any circumstances, move forward with your plans to remake Melrose Place. I am begging you.
It's heartbreaking enough that they took Beverly Hills 90210, which was like the perfect blend of cheesy, tawdry and fantastic, and remade it into an hour a week of television more boring and more poorly acted than your average afterschool special*, but I will not sit idly by** and let them screw with the legacy of Amanda Woodward, Michael Mancini*** & Co.
*I don't know how you manage to make something involving rich bitches, drug overdoses, secret children and Lucille Bluth boring, but the new 90210 has done it
**I don't know what I will do in lieu of sitting idly by; letter writing takes a lot of effort and will only confirm Becca's belief that I am a Melrose Crazy, so maybe I will just settle for angrily blogging about my misgivings
***Why doesn't Thomas Calabro get more work? Why is Kate Hudson as famous as she is and the relentlessly entertaining Thomas Calabro only shows up in random guest spots on crappy shows? Life is so not fair
