As happens with the Walker clan, a new member of the family is revealed--but this time it's not a love child of the departed William Walker (Tom Skerritt). And there are heartbreaks and great, deep romantic connections. Sarah (Rachel Griffiths) finally gets a major story arc of her own in this season, and it's lovely. Her bond is only growing with the handsome Luc (Gilles Marini), and they make a decision on how to face the rest of their lives. Kitty and Seth have a different kind of decision to make, and Beau Bridges, excellent as Brody, a onetime flame of Nora's, reappears in her, and the family's, life at exactly the wrong time. Which of course means the perfect time for wonderful, engaging TV drama. The fifth-season boxed set includes some great extras, like bloopers, behind-the-scenes details, and a hilarious interview with the undeniably gorgeous but extremely self-effacing Marini. Fans of Brothers and Sisters will want to make room at the table one last time for this loving, lush finale. --A.T. Hurley

ABC cancelled the show on Friday May 13th (lucky day....).
Will be buying of course to complete my collection.
Like Married...With Children, the end felt more like a season finale than a series finale, but if I remember correctly ABC hemmed and hawed over whether or not to renew B&S for a sixth season... at least the writers had enough notice to land the plane gracefully.
Things changed drastically during season 5. The show lost two of its main characters (Robert and Rebecca) which left their counterparts (Kitty and Justin) with completely new story lines. Kitty's was by far the most random of the story lines. She was not so much the focal point of this season as she had been in previous ones, and with all of the unusual experiences they had Kitty doing, it was almost as if her character had no direction.
This seemed to be the theme throughout the majority of the Walker clan. A lot of quick and insignificant plots occurred throughout season 5, which almost made it feel as though the writers had no idea where to take the series. They would just throw things in the season which were unnecessary and had no bearing on the over all show. The story arch of the season, while interesting, was definitely something that had just been thrown together. I don't feel that the drama of this season was up to par with previous seasons, but it didn't make me love the show any less, it just made it feel like a completely different series. The final episode, while heartwarming and emotional, felt more like the end of a season rather then the end of the series. Luckily, it didn't really leave many questions unanswered. You pretty much knew where each character was headed and it was satisfying.
Ultimately, I think the loss of Robert really hurt the show. Justin's character could survive without Rebecca as it seemed like their relationship had really run its course, but there just seemed to be something seriously lacking without Robert because that meant there was a lot missing with Kitty.Read more ›

Enjoyed, although I would label it as a prime time soap-opera in most of the episodes. The actors are great and did a wonderful job. Read morePublished 4 months ago by joan sterner
