I never watched Party of Five in real time, but I found it onDemand last fall and have been watching it in bits and pieces since.
May I just say that ohmygosh I HATE Julia's character? With each episode I find myself rolling my eyes so hard at her I'm afraid I might fall off the couch. First she's stealing her best friend's boyfriend in high school, then she's cheating on that boyfriend, then she's blowing off Stanford, then she's married, then she's "separated," then she's in an abusive relationship, then she's in another school and sleeping with her editor.
WHO IS THIS PERSON AND WHY DID ANYONE THINK SHE WAS BELIEVABLE?!
Have you ever watched a show that had an element you hated so much you almost considered not watching it? I'm at the point I don't think I can ever watch anything with Neve Campbell in it ever again because Julia Salinger ruined it for me.
It's basically the most horrible thing ever.
