Editorial Reviews

Gomer Pyle, a naive country boy, leaves his home in Mayberry, NC to join the U.S. Marine corps. His perpetual wide-eyed innocence frequently gets on the nerves of his tough, loudmouthed sergeant. A successful spin-off from The Andy Griffith Show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Final Season for Gomer August 22, 2008
Format:DVD
I just loved this show and its great to be able to finish off all 5 seasons on dvd!

There are 30 Episodes for Season 5. It really contains some great episodes: My Two favorite season 5 episodes are: Car For Sale and Come Blow Your Top!

Come Blow Your Top had it all. By the fifth season Jim Nabors and Frank Sutton had perfected their roles as Gomer and Sgt Carter respectvely. This storyline exemplified what the entire series was about. Well respected and tough as nails Sgt Carter trying his best to maintain a top notch platoon while the often clumsy but good natured Gomer seemed to always find a way to make waves and get under the Sergeants skin. This episode featured Alan Melvin as Sgt Hacker who put in one of his best performances of the series as he enlisted the help of Gomer to make Sgt Carter blow his top and win a bet at the same time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sorry To See It End August 23, 2008
Format:DVD
As A Die-hard Andy Griffith Show fan,Gomer Pyle,USMC just completes the wonderful experience of great comedy that sort of ties in both shows...Frank Sutton is just fantastic and I feel often overlooked as one of the great character actors of his time..When you have seen these episodes as often as I have,the characters,actors and story lines really are funny.If your a great fan of Mayberry,this series really belongs with that collection.In a way its like having 13 seasons of a time period that all ties together for lots of laughs and memories....I AM alittle upset that some of these episodes have been edited and some of Jim Nabors musical numbers have been ommited.Also,I feel there should have been more commentary from Jim Nabors and maybe some of the surviving cast members.It would be great to hear about the filming of some of these episodes from the actual actors and writers....Great shame that the series ended when it did without any conclusion..Unfortunately,though the show was in the top 20 for its entire run,times were changing for television and like many light-rural comedies of the time,all were canceled to make room for more political and social commentary-like shows that would take tv into the 70s

4.0 out of 5 stars Not every song butchered November 29, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It is with some relief that I can report at least two episodes from Gomer Pyle fifth season that are plot reliant on songs appear on the DVD set unchanged. The extended musical number between Carol Burnett and Nabors is there and "Blowing In The Wind" miraculosly survived in the hippie episode. I still don't approve of what CBS/Par did to this series, but the episodes I was worried about came through largely unscathed.

(I was also relieved that earlier the climax to the Washington two-parter "Impossible Dream" is there).

4.0 out of 5 stars Gomer leaves the airwaves,but not our hearts! February 6, 2009
Format:DVD
Jim Nabours,cast as the lead in "Gomer Pyle",played the role he will always be most remembered for,and found a place in television history as a result.Even though he had a successful career as a recording artist also(a very fine tenor),he just could not entirely get out from under the shadow of the character he made so famous.Eventually Mr Nabours "retired" from show business settling in Hawaii where I believe he still runs a very successful macadamia nut plantation.
Frank Sutton who came to create his best known role in this series as Gomers'short tempered Sgt.Carter,also found himself typecast much the same as Nabours did.He went on to appear on Nabours' post Gomer television show(a clip from which appears in the season one set)and did various dinner theatre also.Unfortunately he passed away at the age of only 50 in 1974.
No one could ever see two other actors in the roles of Gomer Pyle and Sgt.Carter.Both men were perfect in them and played extremely well off of each other,as the chemistry between them is very apparent in each in every episode.
Season five of this series continues where season four left off,with lots of laughs supplied by Gomer's innane but well intentioned boners and Sgt.Carter's apoplectic reactions to each.Like the Honeymooners where Ralph would yell at Alice,deep down he loved her;so we find a similar situation in this series.For example,there is one ep here where Carter may finally get his wish to see Gomer leave.At first he is ecstatic but by the end of the ep he has sneakily changed the transfer papers and secured Gomer back in his platoon.Even though Gomer has given Carter everthing short of a stay in the local mental hospital,Carter also realises Gomer is always well intentioned and has even unexpectedly come though for him many times.

Funny, but a little obnoxious at times. Definitely good old fashioned humor and fun! I wish they made shows like this again. I miss the clean, witty humor.
