This is one of my favorite shows. It was never a ratings winner, despite cast defections and a host of other problems, it's a miracle for fans that it managed to stay 'on the air' for five seasons. This is a strong, if not entirely successful, attempt at a return to the quality of the first two seasons,(not to be missed)... after two lackluster middle years. The outrageous plot lines and 'over the top' action are back on hand; along with a refound sense of humor and a rededication to the family drama that was always the underpining of this hugely entertaining, totally preposterous, story. A real treat for long time viewers this year is the reemergence of such familiar faces as Will Tippen, Francie Calfo, Julian Sark, Irina Direvko and, fan favorite bad girl, the delicious Anna Espinosa. We leave this show as she often left Sydney... with a 'lipstick kiss' on the glass.
