Virgin River is back with season 5. Netflix released 10 of the episodes together, and promises two more Christmas themed episodes on November 30. Everything about this series works. The cast has settled in to their roles convincingly and comfortably, the storylines are full of love, friendship, family, and plenty of perilous moments to keep things moving.
Virgin River was so romance oriented in season 3, it could almost make you diabetic. There was drama built in, but every story line was deeply involved with love. This was my least favorite season of the Netflix drama, simply because it felt so emotionally manipulative that you had to cry buckets to get through it.
