The Melrose Revamp Ill-Advisedly Continues

Nobody at the CW has, in the last month, come to their collective senses and said, "Holy hell, we are remaking a cheesy, awesome, cheesily AWESOME show and also giving Ashlee Simpson a paycheck. WHAT HAVE WE DONE?!" and aborted all plans for this remake, which is a pity, but they HAVE chosen to add one of my all time Melrose favorites to the cast: Laura Leighton's Sydney will be the new landlady.

Even though this is silly because we all saw her die dramatically on her wedding day, and even though she'll probably get even less airtime than Jennie Garth on the new 90210, and even though we still have not heard ANYTHING about a Michael Mancini cameo, I have to admit that this is the best Melrose related news I have heard yet (a statement obviously damning with faint praise), because Sydney and Laura Leighton are pretty fab.

EDIT: Thank you, Nikki for the heads up: Michael Mancini! On the new Melrose! Eeeeee!!!


I thought it was a huge mistake when they killed Sydney off. I loved her-- way more than Amanda.

Don't know if you've heard but they've added Colin Egglesfield to the cast. Also, and I don't know if you are a Sarah Connor Chronicles or Battlestar Galactica watcher, but they've also added Stephanie Jacobsen. For those two alone, I'll be tuning in. Lets hope the show doesn't suck lol.

I FLOVED Sydney ... Laura Leighton rocks! So like you say, that is the best news in all this.

well dead never REALLY meant dead on Melrose so I can deal with Sydney coming back..because as you pointed out Sydney is awesome squared. but the rest? Colin Egglesfield aside....the rest just no.

Your addiction to really bad TeeVee, Mallory, is a teensy bit concerning. Please don't pick this poser up for blog material.

I miss the real Melrose. Remember when Jane and Sydney fought in the swimming pool? Loved it. Sydney's death was so lame on that show. She was hit by a car, right? I always confuse Brooke's swimming pool accident with Sydney's death. It's been too long.

U got your wish Mallory! Michael Mancini is officially back.(according to People.com)

Oh my god, I'm not sure I'm going to be able to get Mallory to blog about anything other than Michael Mancini from now until this new trainwreck debuts!

I'm boycotting unless they get Locklear back. And even then, I plan to have a bad attitude about it.
