I came to this show late in life, I didnt start watching until season 3. I had to buy seasons 1 and 2 to catch up, and I have been stuck ever since. I have vowed, if I ever won millions in the lottery, to donate 1 million dollars so that this show could keep on going. Mac and Charlie, Dennis and Dee and Danny DeVito as Frank are five of the biggest NUTS in Philadelphia. With thier get rich quick schemes ranging from becoming a surrogate mother for a well-to-do couple to writing a movie in competition with M.Night Shyamalan they get into mess after mess. The issues in this show are jaw dropping hilarous. Charlie thinking he is an attorney, Dennis thinking he is God's gift to women, while maintaining a quasi-homosexual relationship with Mac, Frank pulling a gun at every corner and Dee just being Dee, Sunny is a show that just makes life worth living.

I'm not reviewing the show itself, which is spectacular and worthy of 5 stars, but instead this specific Blu-ray release. I do recommend picking this up on regular dvd but here's what's wrong with the Blu-ray.

The major problem is that the show isn't shot in HD, so these episodes are all upconverted SD. They admit to this fact straight off in a little specially filmed bit to explain this. While it's a neat little bit, it's still basically saying you shelled out the extra money for nothing. If you have an upconverting DVD player you'll be all set. There's a few blu-ray exclusive features but nothing that warrants the extra amount for this. Unless you find it at the same price as the normal DVD then stick with that.

My other issue with this set (and I think the dvd set as well has these) are the audio commentaries. Now I made my review 3 stars instead of 2 since they even did audio commentaries at all and I think that's great but there's only a couple and 2 of them are horribly ruined by sticking Dr. Drew from Celebrity Rehab into them. It would be a kinda funny additional commentary for intervention episode, but having that instead of a normal commentary is just bad. And it's made worse by how extremely boring his commentary is.

So buy the DVD, the episodes are awesome and you'll watch them over and over, but skip the Blu-ray.

This show is one of the most original and funniest shows on television right now. The characters are dynamic and hilarious, the situations are absurd, and the final product is nothing short of television brilliance. If you have never seen this show, you are truly missing out. Season Five finds the Gang in their element yet again, with episodes about drinking games and interventions. This is a show that no true comedy fan should miss.

I just got into this show this summer after a friend loaned me the season 1 & 2 DVD's and have bought the remaining season's to get caught up before season 6 premiered. It's a great show, but season 5 was not shot in HD, so there's no need for a blu-ray. Save some money and buy the DVD instead. I still have to give the show a five though because it's that good and because they provide a cocky message at the front of the blu-ray that tells you that they just ripped you off. Only these guys could get away with this.

I bought this show after reading a review about Arrested Developement(which is NOTHING compared to this show)....after watching it (and almost pissing my pants with laughter) I went out and bought every single season!!!! This show is SOOOOOOOOO hilarious and quick witted!!! Everytime I watch an episode, I hear a side comment or something being said that I didnt hear before (I must have been laughing so hard the first time, that I missed them) I can watch them over and over again and its just like its my first time!!!! I CANNOT WAIT until season 5 comes out of DVD!!! "World Series Defense" is THE funniest episode EVER (whoop, there it is. Whoop, there it is) Im still laughing at it!!!!!

The show is awsome - but if you are looking here you probably already know that, so I will limit comment to this version. The first thing you will see on the firse disc is an anouncement informing you that since the show (at least for season 5) was origonally shot in standard definition, so you might as well save a few bucks and get the regular DVD version since there will be no visual improvement or other BluRay features. Having said that... This is another great season of "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphis" Enjoy!!

While I have to admit. THIS SHOW IS HILARIOUS!!!!!! However, that being said. The show is not filmed in HD, so the quality transfer to blu-ray is nothing special. You are wasting your money aside from a few special features. If you're looking for good video quality, the show will actually look better if you played a SD dvd in your blu-ray player!

This show is wonderful, if you don't know, now you do. I just hate the price on Amazon here, I have watched it fluctuate from $21 to $25 for quite some time, and now that the Christmas season is starting it is up to $30. What's the deal Amazon???

I love this show! Season five doesn't dissapoint! In fact, The Gang Gives Frank an Intervention is my favorite episode of all the seasons. Gotta buy it. Only dissapointment is not a whole lot of interesting bonus material.
