Highlander The Series - Season 5

It seems that as far as Hercules, Xena and Highlander are concernes, Anchor Bay can't make up it's mind how many disks to put in a set, how to put the disks in the set, or how to produce the set itself.
The last box sets in all three series were half an inch thinner than all the others, making these last packs look very odd when put next to the others. This is mostly due to a new box design that Achor Bay is now using which puts two DVDs in a single plastic case, one overlapping the other, instead of one case per DVD which had been the case up till then.
This may seem like a small gripe, but at the price these sets are going for, they should all look the same. It's particularly irksome for Highlander, because up until season five this was turning out to be one of the finest looking DVD collections ever, but with the new size for Season Five the whole thing looks like a mistake or a new series. In short, it looks like hell!
The other part of the complaint is the number of disks. It's eight, it's nine, it's ten! The seasons all have more or less the same number of episodes, why does the disk count keep changing? In one box set the tenth disk is in a thin cardboard enveloppe and tucked in the package, in another it has its own plastic tray like the DVDs!
Come on Anchor Bay, pick a system and stick to it, how hard is that?
I don't know how much money they saved making this last change to the two disk trays, but I'm sure it wasn't enough to warant the change. If you want to look at a disk that happens to be at the bottom, you have to take the other disk out. With ten disks, looking for you favorite shows can become difficult, messy, and potentially you could damage a disk.

The season exceeds the other before (and after) it mostly because of the script. There are some absolutely brilliant lines in a few episodes that just take your breath away. The character of Methos is really devloped in a most astonishingly and heartily genius manner.
The episodes that really got the limelight from me were 'Comes a Horseman' and it's continuiation, 'Revelations 6:8' mainly starring Methos. It's the first time we get flashbacks from his character and it's really an amazingly well done piece of work. The effort both the actor and the writers put into the character is very noticable and very much appreciated. If only Highlander had known that 5,000 year old immortal from season one.
The opening episode of season five introduces a new character to the screen, Cassandra. A 3,000 year old immmortal whom Duncan met in his childhood. She appears once more later on in the season.
A shocking finale to the season involves a heavy plotline involving Richie and Duncan, with Methos and Joe involved as a backset. A menacing evil has appeared and the ancient prophecy, which started up at the beginning of the season, is now being played out. The last episode ends as a cliffhanger making fans rush to buy the last season, num. 6.

My kids and I just rewatched the entire series. While this season has a few good episodes, it has some real clunkers and doesn't hold up as well.
He now has the first five. He loves them so much that guess
I will have to check for a season six?
I have always been pleased with service and quality of purchases made
