5.0 out of 5 stars The first episode on disk 3 may not be the right one November 3, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Great DVD set. Loved it. The other reviewers have done a fine job. I am bringing another issue to light for you.

When you receive this DVD set, and play the first episode on disk 3, you may think you saw this episode when watching a previous disk. If so, you received one of the old release DVD sets. You probably bought it from an Amazon affiliate such as "mnmsales", not Amazon direct. This is what I did as recently as August 2008.

Warner Home Video will fix this problem for you at no charge a lot faster than mnmsales will. Warner recalled the defective set way back in January 2008, replacing it with a different UPC. Why mnmsales is selling this recalled stock beats me, but they are not answering my email request for a replacement.

If your disk 3 is affected, call 1-800-553-6937 and Warner will arrange to ship you a replacement disk 3 and a reply-paid envelope to return the bad one. I guess if you don't return the bad disk they will want money for the new one which is fair.

5.0 out of 5 stars Riveting August 17, 2009
Format:DVD
I first discoverd MI-5 on my local PBS station. It was on Thursday nights. I needed the background and to catch up. I have subsequently bought all 5 volumes and have just ordered vol 6. The ending of Vol 5 was so riveting I searched all over my area, unsuccessfully, to find a place to rent episode 1 of vol 6 so I could know how our MI5 spooks managed a major crisis of critical proportions. I confess, and maybe some other Spooks junkies will confess the same, but when I received the series dvd's I watched 10 hours in a row with minor breaks for essentials, finally quitting at 3AM. This series is absolutely knockout. One reviewer wrote being a bit put off by the variety of villains there are in the world coming from all nations with all beleifs. Is it possible? You decide. All I can say is that if you want to be entertained with great writing with strong character development that puts its characters in absolutely unbelievable situations, accompanied by outstanding acting, go for MI-5. 24 is great, but this series will knock your socks off.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Why Reveal Spoiler"?? April 3, 2008
Format:DVD
I have been very excited about purchasing Season 5. However, this is the last time I'll read a review on anything here, because of the review of "Aunt Holly". Holly, when you review something, please don't feel the need to reveal major plot points just because you have seen them happen, thereby spoiling the potential enjoyment of same by someone who hasn't. It's the basic modicum of internet civility.

2.0 out of 5 stars Beware!!! Bad Disk Manufacturing Problem! January 13, 2008
I LOVE this show but the wait for the DVDs can be so long. So finally this volume shows up in the states and one of the disks doesn't work. Its the same problem other reviewers have had: disk 3 doesn't work or if you can access it, it has a duplicate episode (from the disk 2) and then is missing the next episode in the series, a crucial one that involves a permanent change in the show! None of the other disks have the episode and I have returned 2 of these box-sets so I would say this is definitely a manufacturing problem. Sooo: good luck.

5.0 out of 5 stars MI-5 the Best September 15, 2009
Format:DVD
MI-5 is the best crime drama currently on the air. It has been compaired with "24" for style and content, but, MI-5 is more intelligent and believable and better acted. They have carried this style of TV drama to the next level. From an American point of view, it is interesting to get another country's point of view on international terrorism. Also, to get another country's opinion of America (the neighborhood bully). This holds true for all episodes, they are well done in all facets of drama, producing, directing, staging and acting!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Missing Episode 5 January 12, 2008
By BRITLIT
Disk 3 loaded in the player, but then reverted to a blank screen with the message BAD DISK. I was able to view the disk by going into the episodes, only to discover that Episode 5 is missing entirely (disk 3 overlaps with disk 2). This is obviously a manufacturing defect. Anyone else encounter the same problem?
That said, the remaining episodes are superb, the best yet in MI-5/Spooks series.

4.0 out of 5 stars MI-5 takes it up a notch. April 23, 2011
Verified Purchase
I had no technical issues as did other reviewers. My set-up is streaming over Wi-Fi (N) to a Sony Blu-Ray that supports Amazon On Demand.

I'm uncertain as to why Season five is listed under Prime and charges .99 per episode. As far as I can tell it's the only season that doesn't fall under the package deal.

So about the actual episode. Really great. MI5 has become one of my favorite shows. And this episode is one of the reasons why. Constant introduction of new (and potentially dangerous) characters, plot twists, plots with-in plots. Unexpected deaths. This episode does has it all. Oh and it was a great follow-up to the previous seasons close.

I'm not being specific as I don't want to reveal anything. It would be hard to say much without doing so. I will say that it wouldn't hurt to do a little home-work on Djakarta. I took a look at Wikipedia and searched Naomi Klein's Shock Doctrine - The later proved to be of greater relevance. Come to think of it this episode, and I presume the next, will conclude to be fantastic illustration of the pieces in play in Shock Doctrine. Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars what an excellent season! February 7, 2008
Format:DVD
(Note: spoilers for previous season and this one may pop up in the following review.)

When the last season ended, Adam (Rupert Penry Jones) had been injured when an ex-5 agent went on a shooting spree. As this season begins, Adam goes through a very quick (on-screen, anyway) recovery after almost dying on the operating table. He might be back at work, but his spirit is definitely damaged. Last season, his wife was killed (she died in his arms) and he now faces the prospect of raising his son alone.

Then, of course, he is shot. He later witnesses the unprovoked shooting of a woman he is trying to keep safe (she was basically put at risk as a part of an operation Adam was running). It is all too much for him, and we watch him come apart this season. Penry-Jones is superb here, maintaining that steely determination while he balances on a razor's edge of near-hysteria. He suffers through nightmares, stumbles around almost zombie-like at times, and basically disconnects himself from reality at various turns, and Penry-Jones does an excellent job of showing that process.

Other actors are superb as well, most notably the one who plays Roz. She is a new addition to the team, having been brought in after her father is revealed as a very bad guy.

This season deals with a variety of issues, including the erosion of civil liberties (an issue here in the States as well as in the UK), the threat of nuclear proliferation (the US is a bit of a bad guy here), and cover-ups on the part of different agencies. All the episodes are gripping and even educational.

Excellent season. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Season Yet, Worth the Watch.
Best season thus far (starting from 1, I haven't seen the existing seasons past 5 as of yet). Big changes in the lineup. More surprises. Darker and more serious.

3.0 out of 5 stars Was hard to part with this series.
My response is just based on my disappointment that the series ended. The last segments were adequate, not as involving as prior seasons.
