This sudsy drama from Aaron Spelling focuses on the lives and loves of young adults in an apartment complex in Los Angeles. From the complicated scheming of scandals to the murderous plots of lovers, the residents at Melrose Place are more messed up than average folk.



This 54-disc set comes housed in similar packaging from other CBS/Paramount complete series releases, like Star Trek: The Next Generation and Beverly Hills 90210. There are two extra-wide keep cases with seasons 1-3 being in one, and seasons 4-7 in the other. The discs are exactly the same from the individual releases so this includes all of the bonus material.

VIDEO – 3½/5, AUDIO – 4/5

Paramount releases Melrose Place: The Complete Series onto DVD presented with a 4×3 full frame aspect ratio as originally aired between 1992-1999. As these are the original discs the transfers are also the same and for the most part the picture looks decent, if not a bit washed out on the earlier seasons. That said, still more than acceptable.

Each episode comes with a standard but effective Dolby Digital 2.0 track outputting clear dialogue levels and the music comes through with good clarity.
