    But she made the shows for me much more fun to watch, I don't think Melrose Place would survive another 6 seasons without Heather Locklear

    Melrose Place is a show you need to watch - the first 20 episodes are somewhat riddled with Knotsian "biker gang" episodes where they deal with "issue of the week" (which ends up being horrible and snark-worthy at least) then it turns into a soap that you'd need crack to quit.

    Tommie is absolutely correct. Melrose Place was such an addictive soapy trash! It was so much fun to watch all those years ago. Heather Locklear as Amanda, Marcia Cross as psycho Kimberly, Laura Leighton as Sydney and Jamie Luner as Lexi were my favorite bitches on the show.

    Heather Locklear/Amanda definitely had a lot to do with turning Melrose Place into the hit that it became. But it wasn't just her that made the show better. Pretty much everything got better in season two. The whole Jane/Michael/Kimberly/Sidney story alone made the show a must watch. Plus as tommie said, in season two they did away with the "issue of the week" and developed far more interesting ongoing stories.
