3 Could have done with a bit of lipo.Justreid | 07/06/2010 | See all Justreid's reviews (23)I have enjoyed all previous series and was looking forward to this one as I've waited ages to see it. It's got twice as many episodes than the other four series finally. Different setting, is uses the LA lifestyle to its advantage and for some reason it has some really funny moments. They've decided to put loads of humour in it, especially the start of the series which was hilarious. Why it only gets three stars though is that although it is good and I still enjoyed it, for me it was the weakest series of the lot. They crammed so much story into it that they could have spread it out into the next series. You can't imagine what could happen to one person over the space of a year, let alone all the main characters. Some parts were strange where something significant would happen to one of the main characters and sometimes it didn't seem to bother the others at all, there was little to no emotion and even had me baffled at one point where one of them just disappeared two thirds of the way through the series and never returned even when some pretty hefty stuff was going down that you knew they'd have some say on it. The series didn't end as well as previous ones as it's left a lot of stuff open for the next series. If you remember series two with Ava and the carver, it had lots of emotion and the music and directing was just perfect. Even when what should have been emotional scenes arose, odd music would come in which set totally the wrong tone and ruined it for me a tad. It seemed to be the same problems they had in Miami, just in a different location as everyone followed them there on the loosest of reasons. If you thought series four was a bit strange with where they went with it, you'll be surprised how far this one goes, especially how many relationships that include the word marriage there are in it. How many women can two guys get that they are willing to marry after a few weeks in one series? A lot apparently. I would really only watch this if you are a hardcore fan of the programme like I am. It was very good, just not their finest. It was like putting too much jam in a sandwich, you can still eat it and it tastes nice, but you'd rather spread the jam over two slices of bread to enjoy it more. Quality of episodes and storylines should take precedent over quantity. Will have to wait and see what happens in series six.
