With season five, VEI changed to a plastic keep case with all three discs located awkwardly inside the keepcase. There is some interesting trivia located under discs 2 and 3 which is something new from previous season sets. Under disc one you will find all of the air dates and titles of the episodes which I was afraid would be gone but thankfully weren't.
It's not that I am disappointed per se in the release as I waited for over a year for them to release this season and I'm sure I will wait just as long for the final season, season 6 to be released. I am just disappointed that VEI couldn't have kept the box sets intact for the final 2 seasons to give some uniformity to the series sets.
By the way, the picture on Amazon makes it appear that this is a box similar to the previous seasons...it's not! Also, I am still wondering why this season was never made available on Amazon USA as all of the other seasons were. I didn't mind ordering it from Amazon Canada but the shipping was kind of steep!

My 12 year old daughter and I have watched all the Kate and Allie's and she loves them as much as I did. The 80's are just another era in the history book for her, but we've had lots of discussions generated by the show. We've discussed Reagan, music, hairstyles, clothing and many other things. My husband and I laugh at an age (not so long ago) when you collected cassette tapes and saved quarters for pay phones.
We love season 5 because Allie finds Bob! We love the catering, odd job business that Kate and Allie begin as well. If you enjoy 80's sitcoms you have to find room on your shelve for Kate and Allie, it's surely one of the best. But do start at season 1 as it's a great show to watch in order. The characters grow and change and while season 5 may be our favorite, the whole series is terrific.
If you haven't seen this series--I cannot recommend it enough. Enjoy, relax! Enjoy relax!
