Looks like yet another tv show that released a few seasons on blu-ray and then went back to dvd only. I love the show and will probably buy this on dvd but I just hate when 1 or 2 seasons are released in a superior format and then we are forced to go back and buy later seasons again just on dvd. Hopefully they will still decide to put this season along with Deadliest Roads season two on blu-ray but it's not looking like it.

If you are shopping Season Five of History's engaging docu-series "Ice Road Truckers," it's fair to assume that you are already a fan. Since its debut in 2007, the show has provided big ratings for the network and its popularity has helped to restructure the entire network's programming slate. You know the drill. For two months a year, big rig hauling over the tundra is necessary to supply remote outposts before the eventual thaw. It's a dangerous profession as we're informed on EACH and EVERY episode. After five years, I think we get it! In truth, everything that you need to know about the job specifics of ice road trucking was covered long ago. The show's success now firmly rests on its cast of characters who can be both likable and somewhat abrasive.

The 16 episodes that comprise this 4 disc set bring you the latest antics of Hugh, Alex, Lisa and Rick as well as many others in the profession. If you like the show, obviously this is an easy recommendation. My personal thought is that we've pretty much covered every topic conceivable in the last five seasons and I'm not as enthusiastic about the show as I was several years ago. I'm obviously in the minority, however, as viewership when it aired on History rose 30% between the fourth and fifth seasons. And am I the only one that gets exhausted by narrator Thom Beers?

Here's a break-down of the episodes: The product description proclaims that there are 15 episodes, but there are 16 in total for the season.

(1) Pushing the Edge, (2) Ice Road Rage, (3) Wrong Turn & Burned, (4) Fire on Ice, (5) Under the Hammer, (6) The Braking Point, (7) A Banged-Up Job, (8) Meltdown!, (9) Road to Nowhere, (10) Rookie Rebellion, (11) Hittin' The Skids, (12) No More Mr.

I'm usually not interested in watching something like this show, but I am amazed with it. It is very interesting to watch. I could even sit down and watch it by myself (without the spouse). They have alot of nerve to do what they do. I give them thumbs up. Sure enjoy Alex's little sayings. Good job.

This set of episodes is the Same Old, Same Old as the previous seasons and probably is a preview of other seasons to come. I'd sure hate to be on the same road at the same time as Hugh and Rick. Not all truckers are a wild and reckless, and hard on equipment as these two. They are perfect examples of employees who spend most of their time sitting down, and looking out of a window. The seat of their pants; that's where they really shine.

This is one of the few "work reality" shows that literally delivers. Keeps your interest and kind of gives you the feeling of traveling those dark, frozen, Canadian roads (especially with the hot trucker) This show kind of gives you the chills, but in a good way.

Really fascinating--mix of great scenery, life and death decision, and a bunch of interesting, unusual characters. Plus a chance to learn about our northern lands and neighbors.

This is one of the best seasons for the Ice Road Truckers, who doesn't like seeing Lisa Kelly showing the guys up lol. Plus she is a cute little woman and loves dirt bikes.

This movie arrived in the mail today, regardless of the fact that I just finished ordering it less than two days ago. It was fast shipping without a doubt! And the show is excellent! Hugh and Alex are my top favorite characters. Hugh always has something hilarious to say, with or without the swear words, but that is just his style as King of the Ice Roads. Considering how many risks he's taken, from Canada to Alaska in the deadliest conditions, he can talk however he wants.
I'm a big fan of Alex. He always has a gentle side to him, even rescuing the SAME trucker in one season, who had been talking bad about him, and even delaying his run and losing money to save the life of a wounded man in a car crash. I hope he keeps on trucking and decides not to retire soon, unless his health gets worse like in Season 2, and I wish him plenty of happy years ahead with his wife and considerably large family. God bless you, Alex!
I've always admired Lisa, trucking ahead as one of the only women heavy-hauling drivers in a man's world, and very glad to see her in this season after I just finished seeing her work in India. Great job, Lisa! She has nothing further to prove to anyone in my opinion, being the only driver left to finish hauling a critical load at the end of the season in India when the other two drivers bugged out, and keeping a positive attitude on the ice roads everywhere while continuing to ask for more dangerous loads. How can anyone criticize her when they can't even do HER job? Keep trucking, Lisa!

This season rocks, and I'm looking forward to the sixth one. Might even pre-order it!

*Follow up* I have watched this season several times, allowing me to get a good opinion on it so far.

Alex---Keeps on driving with Hugh and Rick in Canada.
