After waiting more than a year since Season 4, Shout Factory finally announces Season Five of "Designing Women" on DVD. This is the last year to feature the original cast before Jan Hooks and Julia Duffy stepped in to replace the departing Jean Smart and Delta Burke.

I have a personal affinity for this season, since this is when I originally discovered the series in prime-time, having been a latecomer to it. It was only because it preceded the Sharon Gless drama "The Trials of Rosie O'Neill" that I was finally exposed to the fabulous ladies of Sugarbakers.

Season Four is probably the season that most fans consider the series peak, and this collection of 24 episodes (which originally aired on CBS over the course of the 1990-91 TV season) carries on in the same vein. Slowly, the soapbox/message scripts of seasons past are phased out in favor of quirky but classy high-comedy. This is never more evident than in "Pearls of Wisdom", in which Mary-Jo and Charlene rip apart a salad-bar Lucy and Ethel style, in hopes of finding the expensive necklace of Suzanne's that Mary-Jo's lost somewhere in the restaurant.

The season-opener "Blast From The Past" features my favorite Julia rant of the entire series when she goes off on historical-homes tour guide Mary Ann Mobley in Scarlett O'Hara style (much funnier than her "Night-the-Lights-Went-Out-In-Georgia" speech). Dixie Carter also gets to rip people to shreds as Julia in "Miss Trial", when she's sequestered with a bunch of hick jurors causing her to miss out on a dinner with Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter.

Alice Ghostley (Bernice) gets more screen time this season; first with a cable-access talk show and later with a botched nose job.

These women rock and continue to do so in time- Everyone of them in her specific and unique character persona. I always will love Suzanne- Beautiful, outrageously funny,and never afraid to be blunt; Julia, the greatest personality ever, talented, beautiful, smart, and with a "pret-a-porter" sharp and unbeatable repertoire; Charlene, so beautiful, honest, sweet , compassionate, and FUNNY; and the Foxy Mary-Jo, so beautiful, smart, funny and irresistible! How could not someone have a good time in the company of those gils! They are irresistibly adorable! This is one of the greatest funny shows on TV ever. I love it!

I picked up Designing Women Season 5 thinking there would be a few great episodes and the rest would be filler, but to my astonishment all of them are great! Suzanne as at her best, and that's what I love about Designing Women - Suzanne being outrageous.

The video and audio quality are also great. Much better than some of the earlier seasons.

Highlight of Season 5 would be Bernice's pig snout! Hah!

I can't wait for the later seasons, even if Suzanne and Charlene are gone...

Season 5 is the last one featuring all of the original cast and, to my mind, it's the best of the five. All of them are funny, but by season 5, the writers and the actors had their show, their characters and the South down pat and knew how to work it. The imcomparable Dixie Carter as Julia Sugarbaker gave new insights into her character, as we watched her learn to play a little (singing in a club), take in a young house guest for several weeks, and grieve the loss of her beloved Reese. Suzanne (played to perfection by Delta Burke) even grew a little as she helped Julia deal with the aftermath of Reese's death and went on to guard her car from foul balls at the Little League games. Charlene (Jean Smart, who is hard to imagine in any other role, although I've seen her in others and she's great) got her husband home and tried to break Olivia into modeling. Mary Jo (Annie Potts, who is like no one else on earth and a delight to watch) toughened up a little and learned to fight back while watching her daughter get old enough for college (where HAS the time gone?) and her son be lousy at Little League. And Anthony (who is a natural born mixer and can get along with nearly anyone) got invited into the Country Club that refused membership to Suzanne, made partner, and learned that dainty women are not always ladylike! Meshach Taylor, who turned one episode into a recurring role and then into a regular, makes the perfect counterpart to the four women. No one else could have played the part with the panache and humor he made look so effortless. No wonder the show changed after this; they achieved perfection (or close to it) and had nowhere else to go. I laughed all the way through this and plan to watch it again before too long.
