The quality of the Highlander DVD box sets is a delight through all six releases. Season Five is no exception and contains the same unique special features and great video transfer as the rest. My one major turn off that, unfortunately, seems to be an industry standard is the folding package that takes up the whole coffee table. It doesn't detract from my enjoyment of the series or the special features which were enough in the first two seasons two make me buy the rest, at a premium for my impatience, from the official site ([...]

As in the previous season, Highlander season 5 begins with a tale of Duncan's childhood. Through present day events and flashbacks, " Prophecy" shows us a whole new breed of older immortal with powers that certainly would have helped the character of Methos (Peter Wingfield) in earlier seasons, mind control over humans and younger immortals through a powerful form of hypnotic suggestion. We are introduced to the character of Casandra, the first immortal that Duncan (Adrian Paul) ever came into contact with as a child and a fabled witch in his native village. "Prophecy" as befits its title foreshadows the entire season we later find, even to the point of making minor mention of Connor MacLeod, Duncan's distant cousin and the hero of the original Highlander movie. While some may not see the referencing of the original movie for the first time since the pilot for the series as foreshadowing, to me it stands as a statement from the producers that all bets are off.

It is easy to forget that there is now a "chosen one" prophecy hanging over Duncan's head as you get into the season.

Many fans consider this season to be the last true season of "Highlander" before the series spiraled towards oblivion with season six. Many fans also consider this to be the show's best season. No matter what you say, it's indisputable that the fifth season holds some of the show's finest episodes.

One of the lesser points of the show's later years was that it delved deeper into the realm of fantasy, bringing in witches and even a Zoroastrian space demon (!). Season five begins with one such episode, entitled "Prophecy", which introduced the character of Cassandra (played by Tracy Scoggins), a five-hundred-year-old witch whom MacLeod briefly met as a child. We explore the after-effects of MacLeod's Dark Quickening (from the season four episode "Something Wicked") in "The End of Innocence", a great episode that shows Richie's loss of trust in Duncan. Carl Robinson, the character from season two's "Run For Your Life", returns in "Manhunt" (as well as a young Eric McCormack), while - naturally - Amanda returns for many an episode. The high point of the season is undoubtedly the two-parter which delved into Methos' dark past, beginning with "Comes a Horseman" and ending with "Revelation 6:8". These two episodes are often thought to be the best of the whole show, and I must say I agree. These are just a few of the great episodes in this season, which also includes the entirely flashback episode "Stone of Scone", as well as the beautiful "Duende", and intriguing "Modern Prometheus". We're left with a cliffhanger for the season - "Archangel", the first of the Ahriman trilogy, which forsees the coming of a space demon whom Duncan alone can defeat. If it sounds horrible, it's because it is.

Season five of Highlander is another great 22 episodes. This season starts off in a similar fashion as season four did. `Prophecy' takes us back to the Highlands of Scotland when Duncan was only 13 years old; we got to see him in close contact with his cousin Robert, with whom he had to confront in season four's opener `Homeland'. This season also brings home Ritchie, now an immortal with no false belief that Duncan will protect him and watch out for him; he is ready to take care of himself. There are episodes with Huge Fitzcairn, played by the great Rodger Daltrey, and Amanda, and Methos. My favorite episodes in the series `Comes a Horseman' and `Revelations 6:8' are in this season, with additional director's cuts versions of both episodes. This season is great enough on its own, but the DVD set comes packed with interviews and deleted scenes. The interviews are long, and most of them are great to watch. The deleted scenes are fun as well; they show with great detail how much work went in to filming the sword fights. This DVD set is well worth the time and the money. I highly recommend this set for all who enjoy great TV; there is enough action, comedy, science fiction, and drama for any fan.

The episodes - "One Minute To Midnight" and "Double Jeopardy" are in the Season 4 Box set.

Those episodes were filmed during season 4 but didn't air in the US until season 5, hence the confusion.

I have to agree with the other reviewers, this season was by far the strongest of all of them. Nearly every episode was good, even the weaker ones.

We see more of Duncan's past as characters such as Cassandra and Melvin Korin, otherwise known as Kronus (more on him later), reappear in Duncan's life. We see a change in the relationship between Duncan Macleod and Richie Ryan. We find out more about Methos (more on that later too) and we get some new interesting characters!

There were two comedy episodes that I just loved. Both involved Adrian Paul and Elizabeth Gracen. While "Dramatic License" was a good one, the duo is even funnier when they have Roger Daltry with them as Hugh Fitzcain in "The Stone Of Scone."

Back to Methos and Kronus, they made a huge impact in the Highlander universe when Duncan discovers from his friend/lover Cassandra that Methos was a murderer, rapist, killer, etc. over 5,000 years ago along side Kronus as part of The Four Horsemen in the episodes "Comes A Horsemen" and "Revelations 6:8." Duncan must now stop this band of immortals while deciding whether or not to kill Methos in order to prevent their evil from walking the earth again!

Personal Note: I hope I am not the only one that feels this way but those two episodes should've been a feature film! Had it had been, it could've rivaled even the original Highlander as the best film of the franchise!

Back to Season 5, the relationship between Duncan and Richie comes to a shocking and tragic end in the final episode called "Archangel." The ramifications are felt throughout Season 6.

Overall, this is (in my view) the best season of Highlander! Just for the Horsemen episodes, its worth the money alone and may be the ONLY season I would pay more than $40 for! To quote an earlier reviewer, if you buy only one season of Highlander, this is the one to buy! Highly recommended!
