We were loyal fans of the sexy nighttime soap opera, “Melrose Place,” so we are so excited it’s getting a facelift and coming back to television. However, after the hack job they did on the new “90210″, we are very afraid about what the CW network might do to the other delicious Aaron Spelling drama! We want to help them help us. Here are the actors that would make us stay home to watch (and drool over) Melrose Place 2.0, after the jump.
What makes rockers hot other than skinny pants and good hair? Guyliner, aka a thin, manly line made with a black pencil that says, â€œIâ€™ve got a steady hand.â€ And an impressive string of straight men have been rockinâ€™ the glam look. Like the guy we all wanted to loose our virginities to, Jordan Catalano, er, I mean Jared Leto. While back in the day his TV classmate Ricky was workinâ€™ the liner, now Leto strokes a guitar and a black pencil as the lead singer of 30 Seconds To Mars. But Letoâ€™s not alone in the black and the blues — plenty of his fellow rock nâ€™ rollers are lining up too. Everyone, from emo babyface Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance to 40-something Californicator Anthony Kiedis of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, has been penciling in. Especially Ashlee Simpsonâ€™s other half, teeny boppinâ€™ Fall Out Boy Pete Wentz. Swoon for yourselfâ€¦. Keep reading »
One of the greatest gifts I got this holiday was the My So-Called Life complete box set. In case you weren’t part of the show’s demographic during its unjustly short lifespan (one amazing, wonderful season), here’s a synopsis: the show follows 15-year old Angela Chase as she tries to make it through life at her suburban high school, hanging out with her new “rebellious” friends Rayanne (the drunk) and Rickie (the gay), barely able to stand her parents Patty and Graham, and falling head over heels for bad boy (and totally illiterate!) heartthrob Jordan Catalano. So MSCL was hands down my favorite TV show ever and I, like many girls I know, so empathized with Angela’s character — the writers did a stupendous job capturing the teen angst meets boy crazy obsession that makes teen girls so….hard to understand, usually. Anyway, I kind of wondered whether the show would still resonate with me though I’m now older, much less angsty, and a whole lot less boy crazy. For example, would I wisely now see the appeal of Angela’s nerdy neighbor Brian Krakow over the insanely gorgeous, but also rude and dumb-as-rocks Jordan? Um, yeah. No. Brian, while used and abused by Angela still seems totally….deserving of her contempt 14 years later while Jordan’s silent but deadly indifference still is the stuff that drives girls, and apparently women, wild. Not to get all cerebral about a TV show, but does this prove that bad boys still finish first and nice guys will always finish last? [Amazon.com] Keep reading »
