Desperate Housewives - What if it's all a dream?

What if Paul Young would wake up one day, walk into the bathroom, find Mary Alice in the shower and realise that the whole series was just a dream?

Sorry, I'm stuck in the 80's.

Melrose Place - Ashlee and Colin fired

Today, it was revealed that Ashlee Simpson and Colin Egglesfield are being fired from the new "Melrose Place"! The creators say that this was always the plan, but the fans think it's because of the criticism the actors have recieved. Violet and Auggie will probably leave the show in episode twelve.

I'm going to miss Violet. I know Simpson isn't the best actress in the world, but I don't think she's as bad as everyone's saying. Besides, I think her crazy character is very entertaining. She reminds me of Kimberly (Marcia Cross) from the original.

And now for some good news. Today, the series producers Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer told Entertainment Weekly that Heather Locklear's Amanda will play a big part of the series when she returns, and she will be around for a long time. This is the best news I've heard all year!

Improve One Tree Hill

Teen drama series "One Tree Hill" would be so much better if they removed all the boring stuff about basketball. I mean, come on, who really cares about that? And am I the only one who thinks that Jamie Scott (Jackson Brundage) is taking up way too much of the main character's time? He doesn't need his own storylines! Besides, his character is very unrealistic for a kid.

Other than that, I like the show! My favourite characters are Brooke Davis (Sophia Bush) and Victoria Davis (Daphne Zuniga). I loved Daphne on "Melrose Place". What do you think of "One Tree Hill"? Let me know!

The new Dallas spinoff series!

A new "Dallas" spinoff series might happen, according to Ultimate Dallas, the original show's official website! Nothing has been officially confirmed yet, but Warner Brothers are planning to bring the rich Ewing family back.

This time, they will focus a new generation of Ewings, but some of the original cast will be brought back to guest star. Larry Hagman, Linda Gray and Patrick Duffy have already been approached.

I really hope that this will happen. It would be amazing! But they have to bring back my favourite, Sue Ellen (Linda Gray). I also want Pamela (Victoria Principal) to return from the dead so that she and Bobby can end up together again. They were the perfect soap couple!

But we'll see what happens. I will let you know as soon as I have more information!

Lili & Susie - Swedish italo disco

Listen up! All disco fans should download the new single "Show Me Heaven" by Lili & Susie, a popular Swedish disco duo.
