At last, Party Of Five is available on DVD!!
on 2 November 2006
After a few weeks I've finally watched all 22 episodes of the first season of Party of Five. I never caught the first series when it was first show on English TV (I think I must have started watching it during the second series). I loved it though. What a fantastic show! It follows the lives of 5 (really 4 because Owen (the baby) is just over 9 months old and doesn't really get up to much!) brothers and sisters as they come to terms with the deaths of their parents in a car crash six months earlier. Relationships, friendships, work , school, grief, growing up etc - it's all here and it's all handled really well. It's got some great acting in too - Matthew Fox is now in Lost and Neve Campbel has gone on to star in several films. Jennifer Love Hewitt becomes a regular in later seasons.
I see that the second series has been released over in the states - please release it (and the other seasons) over in the UK soon!!
