Season 4 ended magnificently.
Dean Morales
Andromeda was never an intellectual show, but it was entertaining and humorous, which made it enjoyable nonetheless.

Talent really fell into the black hole with this one. Andromeda was never an intellectual show, but it was entertaining and humorous, which made it enjoyable nonetheless. I personally didn't care for the ending of season 4; Dylan Hunt's rise to near-godhood was so self-indulgent.

Season 5 was just horrible. The writing and directing were mindless. The same pointless, poorly-choreographed fighting that plagued Hercules was too abundant throughout the season. Every episode seemed to have a drunk picking a fight with one of the crew for no reason, just so Dylan or Becka or whoever could prove their fortitude. It was painful to watch the story go absolutely nowhere every episode - in the same terrible sets. The plots were just so circuitous with no payoff.

Astronomical bodies being represented by avatars? Becka the matriarch of the Nietzschean race via a time-traveling Drago? A black hole in love with Dylan? Too many lame ideas and twists being pulled out of too many you-know-whats. Everybody knew the show was coming to an end and stopped trying.

While I was not a fan of the first four seasons of ANDROMEDA, my reaction to Season Five was quite mixed. One of my main complaints about Seasons One through Four was that except for Trance, there was little or no character development, and that the overall narrative tended to be more episodic than serial. Season Five both featured more character development and had far more of a serial composition, but disappointingly the series didn't get much better. In fact, in many ways it was less enjoyable than previous seasons. Why? Partly because the changes to the show in Season Five were simply undesirable. After the apparent rescue of their corner of the galaxy by Trance's destroying the mother shihp, the crew of Andromeda found themselves in a dingy, harsh, and unpleasant solar system. To make matters worse, most of the crew members were angry with Dylan Hunt and Trance for getting them in this fix. Nevermind that their anger was not believable (destruction of the mother ship?). It was all just unpleasant and, to quote Iggy Pop, no fun.

Another problem was the pregnancy of Lexa Doig. Since she played three characters on the show, her inability to play much of a role changed the chemistry on the show. The timing of her pregnancy was such that it relegated her to her "A.I." character for nearly the whole season. She then came back to the show probably a bit too soon after giving birth. Her place was somewhat filled by the inclusion of former Penthouse model Brandy Ledford (though to be fair, she is a much better actress than you would expect given that pedigree) as a new android, Doyle. And watching the interplay between Doyle and Romy when Lexa Doig made a late season reappearance makes you wish that they could have been together longer than they were.

Like many, I initially did not care much for Season 5. However, I would give it 3.5 stars now. While there are some plot holes and inconsistancies with the past, it is actually very clever. Perhaps too clever in that you only pick it up fully seeing it over again. I just finished watching the Season 5 DVD's and throughly enjoyed them. The entire season builds toward the ending, which while not excellent is still satisfying. Actually, my only complaint about the ending is that there was not a little more post victory stuff.

Sorry folks, but this one drags on for no good reason. Having watched it once i would never do so again. I have been a big fan of the andromeda series and enjoyed many of the episodes. There are simply too few episodes of any worth in season 5 and so it came to an end. What a sad finish to what could have been a much greater series. Watch farscape if you need a long running decent sci-fi. I hate to bag something unless necessary but it is that way here. Take care.

I like the Andromeda series but season 5 is a complete disaster.

Sure the show is low budget and the writing is sub par but it always seemed to have a nice charm to it. With season 5 any charm it had is now gone replaced by writing from a 12 year old boy lost in random thought fantasy land.

The story line for season 5 makes no sense (spoiler alert!).....wait how can I spoil what is already a spoiled rotten mess? The Vederans having to creating a solar system of barley inhabitable planets where random people get shipwrecked on and taking off never to be seen again is silly. Even more silly is the planets are going to be used to slow down the Vederan star when it comes back after taking off for some unknown reason.

This is crazy 12 year old boy daydreaming. I know most Sci-Fi shows do not stick to science very well but come on! Just imagine the sun taking off one day for no reason and then using Venus and Mars to slow it down when it comes back. That's like throwing golf balls at an 18 wheeler going down a turnpike at 75 MPH to slow it to a stop.

There are more insane story lines but I don't want to turn this into a book so to the next disaster we go. The little sayings at the start of each show were mostly ok with a few here and there that were good in the previous seasons but with season 5 each and every one were about as thought provoking as a 10 hour speech on trickle down economics given by Ben Stein.

The writing must have been farmed out to teenagers in the early 1990's. I feel sorry the actors had to say most of there lines on film so the humiliation is forever haunting them.

The acting too is 98.43% of the time "phoned in". It's obvious everyone had given up on the show and just wanted to go home.
