I was there to see the original airing of this show. The first season was a blast. By the middle of the second season though - I knew something had changed for the worse and that the show was probably in trouble. Which was just too bad for me and so many fans. B&B was a huge success up front and could easily have lasted several seasons. But the infighting and bickering got the best of the writers and producers. The final season was terrible and actually ended before \"it ended\". Had they handled \"Katherines' \" character better I believe there could have been a few more seasons. But people do love \"cutting the nose to spite the face\". I will get the last season only because it exists and I want to complete my collection. But for all of you goof-ball at heart Romantics out there - This series is worth having. Enjoy!
