Did anyone ever watch this? I didn't catch it's first run back in 95-96 but a website I stumbled across about 10 years ago had every episode and I loved it. I actually thought it was better than Melrose Place and always thought if it had been on FOX instead of CBS it may have had a chance at lasting longer.

I know I watched the first season, but I remember virtually nothing about it at this point, except that it made the same mistake that the Melrose Place reboot did, that of having the lead male be totally bland and uninteresting and really so pathetic that he just drags down the women fighting over him. In this show's case, you had Madchen Amick and Mariel Hemingway turning themselves inside out for whatsisname the struggling pathetic writer, like in MP's case they had Katie Cassidy's Ella being crazy for Jonah the struggling pathetic director (at least on that show, the other woman involved was pretty bland herself).
I do remember Amick's character telling him near the end that she had never actually read his Great American Novel, which semi-redeemed things since it meant that all her gushing over his amaaaaazing talent was just so much bullshit.

Such a shame such a good show was on the wrong network because I agree it could've outdone Melrose Place.

I enjoyed Raquel when she came on, but her character was a poor Alexis clone who got a good zinger every now and then, but without much real purpose.

John Barrowman was very, very yummy.

He was a good guy in this, right? I think it was more sinister in Titans, but I could be confusing the two parts.
For the most part he was a good guy. He ended up trapped in a marriage to a psycopath who faked a pregnancy complete with faked miscarriage and during a fight she fell on a knfe and died. He then dumped her body in the river and went on the run with the help of his step-father.
He was definitely more evil on Titans. Interesting though, both characters were named Peter.

I always thought that on CPW he was meant to be John F Kennedy Jr.
Yes! I remember thinking that as well. IIRC there was some press at the time about the show to support that as well.
