I liked the show although there were some unlogic twists somewhere down the line the show still reaches out far above most. Let us not complain that they are going to end it and let us forgive them that they are milking it by having a big break in between season start and endind. I mean so many good shows get cancelled or have rushed endings. This one we will get to see ended in a proper way (hopefully). That is worth waiting for is it not? Better ended like a triomph than getting cancelled somewhere mid season 8 or 9. Hail to the King!

gotta love it when they let a show run its course. give us a real ending instead of just dropping the show and disappointing all the fans. can't wait for the new episodes!

The only reason they split it like that is so the actors could have a chance to win awards for the final season. Since they waited until July 2012 to start the 5th season they missed the cutoff date for the 2012 awareds.
I think it's crappy they are not showing it all at once since they are stopping a TV series that is clearly at the top of the ratings. Which makes no sense either.
