Happy birthday to Aaron Spelling, the late, great TV producer born on this day in 1923. Spelling produced a ton of shows America loved, but the only one I care about is Melrose Place, which will teach you everything you need to know about blackmail and slapping people into pools. Here's the classic (first) demise of my favorite Melrose character.

Also, citizens should be aware that every second of Melrose Place—original recipe and 2009 reboot—is now available on Netflix Streaming. You're welcome.
