As the season comes to its abrupt end, and Jillian returns for what ultimately turns out to be the last episode, it really is a reminder of what a great show this was, and how we saw the main cast develop and grow up over the last five years. The most upsetting part though is in the end when the screen goes black and say "To Be Continued", only you know that will never happen because NBC did not respect its fans enough to even let them finish that last episode. Despite this ending that will make you sad, and angry at NBC, you get to look back on the series and realize that this went from some taudry drama when it began and grew into a really special television series.
In this season, we see Tom Selleck join the team as the new owner of the Montecito, AJ Cooper. Danny and Dalinda find out that they're having a baby, and he becomes the President of the Montecito. Piper and Mike wake up one morning finding themselves married (which they keep secret) and when the wedding is out in the open, Mike puts together another wedding for the sake of his mother which prompts Danny to properly propose to Dalinda.
It certainly isn't the best season in it's five year run, but it's still good if you are a true fan of the show. I really love episode 12 called I Could Eat A Horse where Danny and Mike are sent to Wyoming to buy a horse for Coopers ranch and also It's Not Easy Being Green where Dalinda is obsessed with becoming environmentally friendly.
If you've also watched Las Vegas from the very beginning, you'll probably still like this but may find this isn't it's finest work. There are still plenty of laughs and of course there's Mike and Danny who provide a lot of eye candy for us girls. I still enjoy it and hope that all Las Vegas fans will as well.
I personally think that only Tom Selleck could have pulled this off after James Caan left - but was rather disappointed that they didn't develop his character more. He never seemed to have that many speaking lines if you'll notice.
I couldn't BELIEVE that after investing 5 years in this show and owning all the DVDs, that the network would just leave everyone HANGING with such an ending. I have heard that the show was outrageously expensive, but can't believe that some network like HBO won't pick it up?? And they wonder why no one watches TV anymore?? It seems as though inane reality shows are less expensive to produce!
Be prepared to be disappointed in the ending to a great series, but otherwise a wonderful show!

|Seasons 4, 5...Censored?!||
good question! However, like most commenters here, it drives me crazy every time I see the "to be continued...." on the last episode. My theories: The last two Vegas episodes are in a can someplace and will be presented on either television or the big screen...eventually. My second... Read More
