Quite simply, the best show ever on television
2 September 1999 | by Cornell-3See all my reviews

Without hyperbole, this was easily the greatest show in the history of the world. Though short-lived, it will remain forever in the hearts of its numerous fans, fulfilling an integral function that can neither be adequately explained nor casually dismissed. Set in Malibu, the useless and repugnant disaster capital of the world, the show documents what happens when a group of "poor" Valley trash children are bused to wealthy Malibu High School. High drama ensues, as a forbidden love affair between bad boy Zack and nice girl Chloe blossoms, angering members of both of their respective cliques. There are of course a number of fascinating sub-plots, including Chloe's bouts with bulimia, Teddy's battles with insanity and Flipper's attempts to woo the beautiful but vicious and vapid Charisma Carpenter. Each of these plot-lines draw the viewer into a Byzantine network of twists and turns, sacrifices and betrayls, promises kept and innocence lost. Once watched, it is literally impossible not to become hooked on this most illicit of legal narcotics. The show featured a mighty cavalcade of current stars, from Keri Russell of "Felicity" to Charisma Carpenter of "Buffy" to Christian Campbell of "Trick" to Walter Jones of "Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers" to Randy Spelling of "Sunset Beach." As obviously impressive as this is, it is nothing compared to the stable of young hotties assembled by the Maestro himself, the inimitable Aaron Spelling. From the nascent beauty of Charisma Carpenter to the ripe Katie Wright, each episode was a veritable buffet of eye candy. Overall, it would be downright foolish to attempt to think of a show higher in quality than the one and only "Malibu Shores." What Leon Trotsky was to international communism, so this was to television. What Mankind is to the WWF, so this was to television. What Billy Madison was to cinema, so this was to television. For anyone who has the misfortune of not having seen this magnificent show, I urge you to see it by ANY MEANS NECESSARY. Quite simply, it's just that good...
