"Wait, it's not what it looks like...IT'S BETTER...!!
Season Three was the very best of "Melrose" because all the stories were so interesting and incredibly over-the-top. My favorite good characters were Jo and Jake (he is absolutely the perfect man!) And my favorite bad characters were Sydney and Kimberly (she is absolutely the perfect psychotic!) And, deserving honorable mention as one of the bitchiest ladies on "Melrose" is two-faced Brooke.
These are the Season Three usual suspects:
Alison Parker (Courtney Thorne-Smith)
Jo Reynolds (Daphne Zuniga)
Amanda Woodward (Heather Locklear)
Jane Mancini (Josie Bissett)
Jake Hanson (Grant Show)
Dr. Michael Mancini (Thomas Calabro)
Billy Campbell (Andrew Shue)
Dr. Peter Burns (Jack Wagner)
Sydney Andrews (Laura Leighton)
Dr. Kimberly Shaw (Marcia Cross)
Henry/Kimberly's Demon (Zitto Kazann)
Brooke Armstrong Campbell (Kristin Davis)
Matt Fielding (Doug Savant)

"Melrose Place," you never know what they're gonna do; you just want to be there when they do it!! And remember, you are what you watch!"
The most enjoyable trash available...with NO extras!

"The other reviews have given the standard plot summaries, so I really don't need to regurgitate those. Melrose Place continued to gain steam in the 3rd season, as Amanda (Heather Locklear) and the gang continued to get into crazier (but still fun and trashy) plots that kept you hooked each week. The only plot line that is difficult to watch is the one involving Allison. She is so whiny and self-centered that it just gets boring. Next to Amanda, Sydney is probably one of the most fun characters to watch; kudos to Laura Leighton for making it possible to keep her hooker-gone-good character fresh, funny, and sympathetic all at the same time. Now for the technical review: again, the quality of the transfer is poor. Kristin Davis appears this season as Brooke; her acting skills are almost non-existant; it's easy to hate her character. Amazing to see how much she had grown as an actress by the time she made it to "Sex and the City" (although in my opinion, she was also the weakest of that quartet). It looks like video tape and is not of the highest quality. The color is good, but the sharpness and detail are marred by the substandard transfer. The "extras" are just rehashed clips from the series. However, there is one somewhat funny extra entitled, "Everything You Need to Know About Season 3." Michael Coulton & John Aboud give somewhat funny commentary (totally satiric) as clips from the season are shown. It seems really weird that they would go to the trouble of putting this segment together yet not have any real behind-the-scenes-stuff. So...if you are a Melrose fan or just want to know what the buzz was all about 15 years ago, get this set. It's hours of trashy over-the-top fun! 5 for the trashy fun; 1 for the quality of the print and the crappy extras."
Melrose Place goes BOOM!

"This was, without a doubt, the BEST season ending cliffhanger of this series. I remember the original ending was to have had the explosion of the complex, but due to the Oklahoma City bombing, they saved the explosion until the fall and what an explosion it was! Marcia Cross was perfect as Dr. Kimberly Shaw, psychowoman, lol.
"Wait, wait wait---WAIT! It's not what it looks like" Peter: Kimberly
Kimberly: It's worse..... Michael: NO!!!!!! Kimberly presses the detomator and 4 bombs go off, one at a time........."
I Love This Show!

"This is by far the most fun and Aaron Spelling-ish season "Melrose Place" had through its run! The show seemed to have peaked by season 4 (though seasons 5 and 6 are worth checking). It features what is perhaps the most sensational and memorable "Melrose" storyline with Kimberly slowly losing her sanity and finally blasting the complex (it's a real shame how Marcia Cross was wasted in her last season). "Melrose" went over the top by this time but that's what was so good about it. It was shamelessly campy!"
