From the May 21st Entertainment Weekly:

The latest news from the TV beat by Joe Flint
DEARLY BELOVED, we are gathered here to pay our respects to Melrose Place, the most mindlessly entertaining apartment complex in TV history (sorry, 227). Oh, how we'll miss the psycho bombers, the love triangles, the provocative hemlines. But at least we have our memories. How did MP's 226 episodes (the last airs May 24) intrigue us? Let us count the ways.* -Bill Jacky
