Overall, this season of Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman had a slightly sadder feel to it than the previous 4. The inevitable fate of the Native Americans was becoming more and more apparent, despite Sully's and Mike's best efforts. The focus of the show shifted from emphasizing Mike and Sully's relationship (which was always the reason I tuned in! What a strikingly beautiful pair they made!), and more to matters of the townsfolk. It continued to seem as though the people in town, nearly all of whom Mike and Sully considered to be their friends and many of whom Mike had saved on more than one occasion, were all just as ignorant, judgemental and even mean-spirited as they were in the Pilot episode. Episodes would end with the wrong-doers shame-faced and contrite, and in the next ep they were right back to doing the same things again. They never seemed to learn anything. I suppose it's portrayal of human behavior was one way the series was very realistic, but after 5 seasons it could be frustrating and unsatisfying to watch.

This season did have two of my favorite episodes, A Place To Die, which detailed the effects of a staph infection in Dr. Mike's clinic at a time when very little was known how to combat such things. (Long before real sterilization beyond hybolic acid was used and before antibiotics were discovered.) In the end Dr. Mike burned her clinic and everything in it to the ground and started fresh, but it also meant humbling herself before the slimy banker Preston A. Lodge for a loan(the same actor who played evil General Custer in previous seasons!)It began the onset of money problems that would plague the family the rest of the series.

The other ep I am particularly fond of in this season is The Body Electric, which featured a visit from author Walt Whitman.

I have loved the Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman series from the very beginning. I have loved watching the characters develop and change over the years. Seeing Dr. Michaela Quinn come from Boston, slide in the mud in the pilot episode, to now seeing her with her own young daughter Katie, and a wonderful family and a very good looking husband, Sully.

This is one of my favorite seasons. We get to see the struggle with the indians and the soldiers hit its peak. I have found this part of the plot so poignient throughout the series.

Dr. Mike now has a young baby to take care of, along with 3 wonderful children growing up. Mathew is a young man now, and the town's sherrif. Colleen is off to college and then medical school, while Brian is now a big brother, and turning into a young adult. Sully was the indian agent, but resigned his post. He now wants to help the indians in any way he can-even if it means sacrifices to his family.

This is the series at its very best. The lighting and setting is simply stunning! The homestead that Michaela and Sully live in really is gorgeous, and, a little hard to beleive that Sully built by himself with a tommahawk and some nails, but OK-.

If you have not watched Dr. Quinn from the beginning, now is a time to start. The best part about the this series is that it is family friendly, and deals with modern day issues, such as homosexuality, marriage, young adult issues nd problem, money, alcoholism, and each episode has a moral or strong point. Go Dr. Quinn!

I started watching Dr. Quinn when it was well into its 6th season and by the time I really got into it the show sadly and unfairly had been canceled. Well, obviously with reruns on PAX & Hallmark as well as various tape tradings I have seen all the seasons of DQ, but not all the episodes. Season Five has alot of episodes that I had either not seen or seen only once so it was a treat to watch this season again. First of all the commentary by Shawn Toovey (Brian Cooper) and Chad Allen (Matthew Cooper) on "Legend" was amazing. Chad Allen is very informative and hilarious giving alot of behind the scenes info on the series and the actors. Shawn Toovey was less talkative especially since most of the stories Chad refered to were from earlier seasons when Shawn was only 8 or so. Still, the pair seemed like close old friends happy to be together again.

I still haven't re watched all the episodes yet but I found "Having It All" to be an excellent introduction to the Sully family's life with newborn Katie (played by the Calabrese-forgive me for the misspelling- triplets) and the departure of Colleen (Jessica Bowman) for college. "All that Glitters" has Colleen return from college a changed women more confident and independent. "Los Americanos" has the introduction of a new character Senora Teresa Morales a Mexican widow one of the only people throughout the series who are not won over by Dr. Mike's charm and starts a back story that goes throughout the season, Brian's jealousy of his new sister and his wish to get more attention from his mother. "Remember Me" gives Jake Slicker more back story and a reason behind his alcoholism.
