I agree, season 5, total fail. Rene's role started to get on my nerves but I did love her earlier on. It would have been nice to haVe a closing scene with her, however, before she just vanished. No explanation. Billy got on my nerves right before his change of behavior. I balled when he died, but afterwards, it was refreshing having him gone really. He'd become a complete jerk. Jackson was cute. John was adorable. Larry was a great addition, and I wish Ally and he would've made it a bit longer. Fun while it lasted. The new characters, while cute, were annoyingly casted. It was like a new show, and bad idea to have a twin Ally. Dealing with one with her oddities was enough. Seasons,1-3 were great. I enjoyed some of 4 also.
