This is the fourth and final season the closing chapter in what would become the landmark television drama of the 1980s. And what a final chapter it was. On the surface it was business as usual for these thirtysomethings, with Melissa struggling with the men in her life, Hope coming to terms with her perfectionism and Nancy dealing with her cancer recovery. But whether it was Elliot and Michael growing apart or a showstopping tragedy that beset the entire group, Season Four certainly marked an unravelling for its main characters and their relationships. But somehow, through it all, their stories stick with us, reminding us that they still live out there somewhere.
