"Monumental personal problems." That's D&D Advertising executive Amanda's (Heather Locklear) sarcastic term. She's referring to Alison (Courtney Thorne-Smith), but in Melrose Place's essential third season, everyone's got 'em. Michael (Thomas Calabro) suffers amnesia from his near-fatal hit and run (Michael's actually a sweet guy when he has amnesia, and the defeated look on wife Sydney's face when she realizes that Michael the scum is back is priceless). Jane's (Josie Bissett) business partner (Andrew Williams) stalks Sydney (Laura Leighton) and bilks Jane out of her savings. Sydney is ultimately framed for trying to run down Michael and is later kidnapped twice--TWICE--once by a charismatic cult leader (Ramy Zada from Dark Justice; and when will that "It's Too Hot to Sleep" cult classic be released on DVD?). Alison wrestles with exposing her father (the great Monte Markham), a pillar of the community, as a child molester, and later sinks into alcoholism.

Jake (Grant Show) becomes the target in an elaborate revenge plot and later is pitted against his resentful half brother (Dan Cortese). Jo's (Daphne Zuniga) baby is kidnapped twice--TWICE--and it's only eight weeks old! Kimberly (a magnificent Marcia Cross), well, space doesn't permit all the manipulations, double-crosses, and betrayals she perpetrates before finally going crazy. And Amanda meets her cunning and ruthless match in Dr. Peter Burns (Jack Wagner), the new hospital chief of staff, who, as he so bluntly tells Michael, doesn't play games and takes no crap. And we haven't even mentioned Brooke (Kristin Davis) as the scheming, spoiled rich girl who comes between sap Billy (Andrew Shue) and Alison. Yes, season 3 is really something, as acknowledged that year by the classic show about nothing, Seinfeld, in the season 6 episode "The Beard," in which Jerry is forced to admit that Melrose Place is his secret guilty pleasure ("Oh that Michael," he rants, "I hate him, he's just so smug."). Season 3 is grand, over-the-top fun, a real disc-grabber (the DVD equivalent of a page-turner). Longtime viewers will appreciate the affectionate skewering the show receives from comedians John Aboud and Michael Colton in a bonus feature that presents an overview of the season (they're right; the name of Jake's boat, Pretty Lady, is the lamest ever). Those who turn up their nose at Melrose Place are encouraged to give season 3 a look. To paraphrase the apocalyptic season finale's famous last words: "It's not what you think…it's better!" --Donald Liebenson

Season 3 - the very best of Melrose Place - finally arrives in the UK. And as if that's not exciting enough, the great news is there are also some bonus features included.


Even at the very start of the season, Marcia Cross' character - the unbalanced Kimberly - is busy. Not only has she run over her fiance Michael with his first wife Jane's car - getting Jane arrested - she also then frames Michael's second wife Sydney (Jane's sister) for framing Jane. It's just another day at the Place.

Bedhopping several kidnappings (including one by a group of cult members), amnesia - complete with personality change, baby-stealing, long lost relatives, alcoholism and drug abuse, life-threatening illness. That may give you an idea of the sort of fast-moving, over-the-top fun you can expect this year.

New faces this year include Kristen Davis as the devious Brooke, and Jack Wagner as Dr Peter Burns - who decides to kill Amanda on his operating table.

Guest-stars include Traci Lords, Ken Howard, Monte Markham and Jasmine Guy.

Melrose also continues what became a tradition for a few years: bringing in a "Dallas" diva for the last episodes. This time, it's Morgan Brittany (evil Katherine Wentworth in Dallas) as a Donna Karan-type designer.

Alison and Amanda's feud moves to the boardroom when the board of D&D Advertising replaces Amanda with Alison (Amanda's response? "I don't know what you used to pull this off - you dishonest, self-serving, pathetic drunk - but when I find out, I'm going to turn it around and cut you open like a rotten piece of fruit"). As Amanda makes her power play, Alison laments "The only mistake I ever made was not firing you - - you conniving, bleach-blonde piece of dirt!

Format: DVD
If you're reading this, you know roughly what's going on. Suffice it to say, what was great in Season 2 gets even better in Season 3. I've just finished this season, and so much has happened it's hard to believe it was all on one series, but the main thing is that it just seems to get more fun, more exciting and more addictive.

It's amazing how your sympathies change. For the first season and about half the second, you feel for Alison and share her pain in her on-off relationship with Billy, but this season, you just want to shake her and hope something bad happens. Amanda continues as before, no bad thing, Jo can't pick a decent man to save herself and even sweet boring Jane has all sorts of weird stuff going on around her, although she's as drippy as ever.

The main players are Michael and Kimberly (again) and little Sydney, who now has all my sympathies. That poor girl could write the book on attracting and causing trouble, but you just can't help wishing her well. As for M&K - where do I start? Michael is as duplicitous, shameless and compelling as ever, and Kimberly (she's so gorgeous, sigh...) goes officially off the scale of bonkersness and is utterly brilliant in her portrayal of an ordinary, sweet, loving, caring, homicidal, psychopathic, schizophrenic, lying, scheming doctor.

As with Season 2, this was one of those shows where you shout out at the characters and feel their pain. There are genuine surprises and shocks in store and I'm really sorry it's over and that Season 4 isn't out in the UK yet.

I don't remember it being this good the first time around on TV and can honestly say it blows everything similar out of the water, even today. For me, it's up there with 24, Sopranos and Desperate Housewives for brilliant, compelling, just lie back and enjoy TV.

Oh my, where to start...right, season three of Melrose Place has cults and booze; shootings and kidnappings; babies and suicide; double, double and triple dealings, a large helping of mental illness (thanks to Kimberley), murder and mischief and ends with a cliffhanger to rival Dynasty's 'moldavia massacre'!

All great stuff and the stories spin past at such a rate that before you've fully comprehended one, the next installment of over-the-top-of-the-topness drama is starting to take shape!

Cannot rate MP3 highly enough, however you should start with season two to know how we got here but if beginnings aren't really of interest to you then jump straight in to season three from where you'll surely be hooked!!

When i first saw season one appearing in shops in november 06, i was tempted to buy it to recall one of my fave shows growing up. But i decided not to, remembering that season one was terrible- melrose hadn't found it's feet and was too earnest back in season one. Then, when i saw season two, i picked it up, i loved watching the show all over again and seeing how it transformed itself from serious issue driven storylines to downright outrageous stories.

season 3- This is the Melrose i remember- it was so outrageous and enjoyable and watching now -it still is. Season three really is the start of melrose at it's consistent best. season 4 and 5 continue to match the standard set here. I just loved watching this season. sydney joining the cult, kimberly going nuts again!, Amanda's cancer fight, jo's baby drama, jane being fooled by the sleazy Chris, the introduction of the spoilt Brooke, alison falling off the wagon (again!).

Watching this reminds of how good this show was even though it was never cool to admit it. I watched three to four episodes every chance i could, it's so addictive.
watching also made me think how modern US drama's are not a patch on the old ones. I mean Melrose moved at break- neck speed, if u missed an episode , u really had missed out, someone could have married and divorced in two weeks on this show. Look at Lost and Desperate Housewives now, not a patch on this, they take themselves way too seriously when in fact they are very tiresome, i mean the amount of actual plot development in these shows per episode is ridiculous. An hour of Housewives for instance is padded with so called comedy routines with just a mere tease of plot development meant to whet your appetite.
