This season appears to have ended with just 9 episodes overall rather than the usual 10. The episodes were aired out of order and the 2nd to last episode (which should have been #9) was actually a clip show.
The inside (unidentified source 'rumor') story is that the entire 4th season was delayed because of massive re-shoots and edits that were necessary after (at least) one person was cut out. Then, problems with powers that be at Showtime and culminating stressors with family members - all indicating that there will be no season 5.
Sadly, this series was reduced to little more than an infomercial this season, advertising everything from radio stations to puppies. Not that fans would mind this, but don't pretend we're stupid and think we won't notice.
It's been difficult to find many fans left this year, not just due to the delay in start time, but the quality of the 'storylines' (commercials).
QotD Did you find anything redeeming about this season? Would you be back if it returned next year?
