I thought I'd start a new thread for the spoiler free people. The new version kicks off tonight on the CW.

Figures that they would put this on at the same time as Big Brother, LoL. Bastards!

I'll probably watch it overnight. Let's just hope it's good.

I'll be flipping back and forth I guess. I'm just glad I woke up in time to catch this and the 90210 season premiere... ^_^

Pretty good so far. I don't know if I like how close the tenants appear to be. You can't tell me that everyone in that complex gets along with each other. I hope that changes soon.

I wonder if the writers even changed the dialogue when they couldn't get Heather Locklear's Amanda and settled for Laura Leighton's Sydney. Everything Sydney has said so far could've came out of Amanda's mouth. Every last word.

It's funny you should say that because I was thinking the EXACT SAME THING.

And, yeah, Sydney made a lot of trouble in her day, but I doubt any of the old tenants would tremble in fear of her the way that she implied.

That's what I thought. Amanda intimidated every single tenant. Sydney just annoyed them.

After watching the little bit that I have so far, I believe that if Locklear would've signed on to play Amanda, David would still be Jake's son and Thomas Calabro would've never been asked to come back. They only brought Michael back because of the Sydney connection.

I don't like how all the tenants are so friendly, either. It's boring. This is Melrose Place. We need some rivalries.

ASW is terrible. She's the Shenae Grimes of this show.

Thinking back on the original, everyone got along at the beginning, but as we all know, that quickly changed upon the arrivals of Amanda, Kimberly and Jo. Hopefully, we'll be introduced the new show's "Amanda, Kimberly and Jo" very soon.

Well, here are my thoughts...

The writing and acting were very so-so, but I was entertained. God knows it was a hell of a lot better than 90210 last year. I just hope they work on the dialogue, because that was a key element of the original MP.

My favorite characters so far are Ella (though, try as they might, she'll never be Amanda), David, and Auggie.

The tenants memorializing Sydney in the courtyard was the hokiest thing ever. I didn't buy that for a second.

I think Violet is going to turn out to be a daughter Sydney gave up for adoption, and I still think Michael will be revealed to be Sydney's killer.

Looking forward to next week!

Just a random guess. But maybe the killer is Jane gone crazy again!

I liked well enough. Ella is definitely ts the favorite for me. You could tell she doesn't like Hayley at all and desperately wants Jonah, so I hope she does something to achieve that goal. Speaking of Hayley, looks like she's the bore of the season. Snooze-fest LOL

David and Auggie are gorgeous and physically my eyes won't let me look away.

The worst thing about ASW is that if Violet was played by someone better, her character would be divine. :(

And just in case you're wondering, I would have taken both money propositions in heartbeat ;)
