I am about to purchase season 5, and just discovered the show was cancelled. This makes me very sad as I found it to be an outstanding program. Superbly acted, impeccable timing, heartwarming, touching, carthatic and real. The network cancelled it because of "budgetary reasons." Found it very expensive to produce. Well, of course...the sickening slew of reality shows makes any quality programming seem expensive. Reality shows are cheap to produce. And as the old saying goes, you get what you pay for. There you go, America. Keep clamoring for cheap, soul-less entertainment and that's all any of us are going to be left with. I'll stick to my B & S DVD's, thank you. And thank you, Amazon, for making them available - I now have all five seasons!

With such great momentum coming off Season 4, I was really disappointed by Season 5. Half the characters are gone or only show up rarely, and I felt like the show just lost its zest. I still enjoyed watching this season, but not as much as the ones before it.

Brothers & Sisters fifth and, as it turns out, final season saw the Walker clan deal with more emotional highs and lows amd gave us one last chance to spend time with the sometime disfunctional but always connected family. Starting out a year after the devastating finale of Season four took a little getting used to, but the decision makes some sense, allowing us to step into the lives they have created for themselves since. This season gave us some great storylines especially for Sarah (and Luc) as well as Kevin and Scotty. I love both couples and enjoyed seeing them with a little more screen time. The quality of the acting on this show has always made it a stand out for me and even when the writers stretch the boundaries of our expectations the cast always rises to the occasion. It is a pity to see it go, but I loved the fact that final episode offered some sense of closure and completion. Nice to see commenatries on this one, though I miss Ken Olin- I love hearing him talk about the shows he's worked on. The Walkers, their wonderful and often fraught family dinners, and all who attend them, will be missed.

The finale episode threw me a bit, but I think the writers tied up enough of the series to feel accomplished.
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.

My wife wanted this series as there are too few programs on TV that she can keep interested in. We bought the whole set starting with the first season at a flea market. All I can say is WOW ! Sally Fields plays the perfect family head and all the actors or actresses do a great job. It's like it's real. I recommend this series to anyone who really enjoys a good drama with out the swearing of false situations commonly found on TV today !

While I enjoyed the final season of Brothers and Sisters, I have to admit that the one word I would use to describe it, is "scattered."

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.
