Seasons 1-4 were and are still classics that I can rewatch over and over. I can laugh and cry, such wonderful characters, writing and acting. This season does not even begin to compare. First there is no explanation of why Mark, Jackson and Renee are gone and the show suffers. The terrible emptiness that is left when Larry goes back to Detroit is never filled. Robert Downey Jr. played such a great character that his absence kills the show, especially as the break up between he and Ally really has no closure or makes any sense. All I could think of with each passing episode is that I miss him and I can't stand these new characters, Jenny and Glenn. Jenny is just plain annoying, at least Glenn is attractive to look at but the younger "kids" ruin the show and they don't fit in at all. And of course, after John Cage leaves, it is devastating as he has always been a key character. I missed him too, and the whole show is just so drastically different that I can hardly bear to watch it. No wonder it had to end. Such a shame. I only own it as I wanted to own the complete series, but season 5 is a bust.
