Re: Has anyone binged the original Melrose Place ?

I've found that with nighttime soaps, it is highly variable when it comes to binge waching.

I haven't watched the original Melrose Place since its orginal broadcast, until I purchased the dvd season sets several years ago. Though I found it somewhat difficult to watch, even for season 1. (Back in the day, I more or less stopped watching sometime in season 3).

So far the only nighttime soap I enjoyed binge watching through, is the original Dynasty. This is including the really horrible seasons, such as the Moldavians + massacre.

For the original Dallas, I found that I could only watch it until season 4 or 5. After that, I found Dallas somewhat difficult to watch.

it used to be on a channel, POP maybe, along with 90210. i watched the early eps and highly enjoyed them. it got messy towards the end of it's run, but this and 90210 are only soap-type shows i've ever watched and really enjoyed...

I have done it. That show is a guilty pleasure. It's best from season 2-5, but I don't think the other seasons are terribly difficult.

I agree with morriscray about Dallas. I started it about 4-5 years ago and find it very boring an difficult to get through... and I'm still on Season 5 all these years later. I've never attempted to binge the original Dynasty, though. I plan on doing it at some point, though.
