      Previous Gissane Sophia Marvelous Geeks Media Ultimately, these final two episodes prove the show can be good if it sticks to the romance and character dynamics, forgoing the crime drama it’s trying hard to mimic. Nov 30, 2023 Full Review Jackie K. Cooper That ole "Virgin River" it just keeps rollin along. 6/10 Oct 7, 2023 Full Review Liz Kocan Decider ... The show focuses on the good in everyone and counts on them all to be their best selves, if only for the sake of Christmas Sep 8, 2023 Full Review Chris Joyce Movies and Munchies (YouTube) The arcs are predictable, but effective in showcasing character growth, engaging dynamics, and escapism that somehow teeters between fantasy and relatability. 3.5/5 Sep 7, 2023 Full Review Next

      Previous La Toya H I don't come looking for reviews from others until I start feeling some type of way-usually bad or disappointed after a while to see if it's just me! However, it's not. I'm on season 4 and it's starting to get really boring. I'm so sick of hearing about Mel and what she use to have. That she got pregnant a day after she got IVF but it didn't work the entire time after she lost her baby and was married!! The show made sure the constant tears from her were there. What a miracle.I'm upset that Charmaine is just now showing that she's pregnant after 4 seasons. That Hope is still so miserable and mean.. to everyone!!!! after an accident. Boredom has set in. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 12/29/23 Full Review BELLA M Virgin river started out really good, but this is the slowest moving series I've ever watched. They will be too old for children by the time 1 year passes. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 10/14/23 Full Review SkyRo P I finally have some good, exciting, fun back, we're not so focused on murder, and all this stuff until the end But we have gotten back to the characters having identities again, and not throwing them all over the place again I love season one and two, season, three and four, derailed the excitement for the show, but season five is slowly bringing it back that when you get to the end, you are so ready for this Christmas episode that is being released in November. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 10/11/23 Full Review Kirsten B I binge watched the first five seasons in a row and where the first few seasons started strong, the fifth seasons seems to tapper off in continuation. I feel similar things have happened in other shows in which the likelihood of events really occurring is getting less and less believable once the seasons continue. Mel's loss is broadly explored within the season. However, the losses of Jack are brushed over quickly. A missed opportunity to give Jack's character more depth. Nevertheless, the final cliffhanger will continue to have the audience captured and patiently waiting for season 6. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 10/02/23 Full Review wendy c Same old story lines. Could have been so much better with newer characters and/or with new twists. So boring; had to stop watching season 5. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 09/22/23 Full Review Johanna C Just as good as the rest of the seasons. I love this show! Just the right amount of drama and feel-good. What I will say is that I really don't like Mel. I find her to be pretentious and falsely humble. However, I think I might just not like the actor herself, as she also came across that way to me on "This is Us". She seems to be cast for these "successful, but supremely down to Earth" roles and I just don't buy the down to Earth part.
