Complete 5th Season of this cult Canadian series. Trailer Park Boys is a series about love, friends and family - or perhaps it's about everything that can go wrong with love, friends and family. At the centre of Trailer Park Boys are Ricky (Robb Wells) and Julian (John Paul Tremblay), two guys whose lives were shaped by their experiences growing up in the Trailer Park.

Sorry, but seasons 1-4 are brilliant and among my favourite dvds. But starting from season 5, it looks like they began to run out of ideas, and season 6 is just a total disaster on showcase.
Corey and Trevor, as revealed at the end of season 4, ripped off the boys. Ricky's none too happy about this. Worse, it doesn't take long for them to end up homeless. And if that wasn't enough, Cyrus is back in town, with a lot of hash that is just too tempting to Julian.
New characters include Terry & Dennis, or "the flappy bird brothers", according to Bubbles, due to their, errr...birds hanging out of their bathrobes all the time. Terry & Dennis have teamed up with Cyrus, and now the boys have three foes to deal with. If that wasn't enough, Lahey's drunker than ever. This time he doesn't want Ricky to go back to jail -- he wants Ricky dead.
Like previous seasons, Season 5 is loaded with hilarious dialogue and ridiculous situations. The ever quotable Ricky has almost been topped by his dad, Ray, who plays a bigger role than ever. As Ray might say, "that's the way she ****ing goes, boys." Which is pretty much the theme of this season. You win some, you lose some. The way she ****ing goes.
Clocking in at a generous 10 episodes (which is the most ever for a season of TPB), season 5 adds lots of new wrinkles. Other reviewers didn't like the way season 5 went, and my response to that is that if you don't change up the formula on a show like this, your show is doomed to jump the shark. Instead, Mike Clattenburg and Co. have chosen to make things less comfortable for the boys and see how things pan out. Funnier than ever, is how!
Five stars, as always. Not a dud episode in the bunch, and actually some of the series' best.
Season Five had not one shot of Bubbles and his kitties. Ricky is less the lumbering,lovable goof and has become a vicious bully. Everyone is depressed,sullen, or angry. The only bright spot is the character of Phil Collins, that moon faced enabler. Barry Dunne carries a lot of the storyline and as far as I am concerned he should stick with producing. Except for a 30 second intro Barb is gone. Trina has disappeared. The commentaries are a bitter disappointment. Mike Clattenburg's voice overs on previous seasons have been the most intelligent, informative, entertaining I have ever come across. Lucy and Sarah's was just embarrassing.
That said, the highpoint besides Phil Randall's performance was the doc on the building of the new trailer park. I would have gladly paid extra for that. Fascinating stuff!
I had thought about writing to the Trailer Park Boys people to voice my concerns but realized it would probably be a waste of time. I noticed in the credits, and they are soooo long now, that Mike Clattenburg has not only listed himself as a writer but also as Head Writer. Hmmm,does this tell me anything about ego,humility, and show business?
I wish all members of the Trailer Park Boys show much success and happy days but I wonder also if the thing they fought so hard to achieve will ultimately kill the talent and humanity that got them there.
