Picks and Pans Review: Melrose Place

Fox (Wednesdays, 9 P.M. ET)

This Beverly Hills, 90210 spin-off, centered on a Hollywood apartment complex, makes a nice first impression but quickly wears out its welcome.

The characters don't seem like people, just self-absorbed stereotypes. Construction worker Jake (Grant Show) is the Hunk. Writer Billy (Andrew Shue) is the Wacky Guy. And actress Sandy (Amy Locane) is the Sex Kitten.

Its creators call the show a blue-collar answer to 90210, but this is proletariat TV like Ivana Trump is a coupon-clipping hausfrau. Grade: C
