Remember when viewing parties for this prime time soap were THE place to be during the 1990s? Juniper does. She's our guest blogger today, writing on one of several over-the-top holiday episodes of Melrose Place. Juniper Sage is not only my fellow den mother for Dance Dance Party Party (DDPP-Akron) but she's one of the organizers for CraftyMart, a hugely successful independent crafters event held bi-annually in Akron, Ohio. Check out: CraftyMart. This third season episode of Melrose Place is available for viewing on DVD as well as streaming on Netflix and IMDb. Click here for the IMDb link.

Just like when I first started watching Melrose, watching this episode after so many years was confusing. I wish I had my friend Kevin sitting beside me to explain all of the ins and outs just like he did back then.

It wasn’t hard for me to love Melrose. Some of my favorite characters from General Hospital and The Days of Our Lives (Jack Wagner, Lisa Rinna) were on the show and there is a hospital/doctor storyline that I found very familiar. It was after all a nighttime soap and I grew up on the daytime version.
