In this spinoff from the series "Party of Five," Sarah Reeves leaves San Francisco to get away from her pampered life and start a new one for herself in New York City where her late biological mother lived as well as to find her biological father that she has never met. Changing her last name to Merrin (her birth mother's last name) Sarah settles in the same apartment where her mother lived which she shares with Romy Sullivan, a struggling actress and younger version of Sarah's mother, while she makes new friends who include struggling musician John Maguire, bar waitress Joss House, their freakish landlord Cecilia, and a friendly neighbor named J.B.Written by
Incredibly disappointing JLH spin off from Party of Five
I have to say I hate this show. Not because of its content but for what it represents. They took a beautifully drawn character from Party of Five and ruined it, absolutely ruined it. And that is a crime for all of us fans of Party of Five, which was a much much much better show.
In the final season of Party of Five just as we're aching to see whether Sarah and Bailey will finally find lasting happiness, Sarah's character is ripped out of the show and sent off to New York in the 3rd episode without warning, never to return. This not only aborted one of the central romances of the show that had developed over 4 wonderful seasons, it also robbed us of Sarah's character just as she was really beginning to blossom and develop her independence and her own identity at the end of season 5. Yes, "Time of your life" was meant to continue her story arc, but the writing was just not nearly as good and Sarah/JLH was much better as part of an ensemble cast rather than trying to lead her own show (at least at that stage of he career).
I think a lot of us PoF fans feel like we were cheated out of 20 further episodes of this character in the final season. JLH was so wonderfully talented and beautiful and PoF is the best thing she ever did. Why do they always have to ruin something good?
