Product Description

It's summertime, but that doesn't mean the women of Sex and the City are livin' easy. They've got new loves, new responsibilities, new choices to make, and (oh, yes!) a new baby to deal with - and that equates to a whole new outlook on being single in New York City. Ready or not, Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte and Samantha are headed for uncharted territory on an all-new season of HBO's smash-hit comedy series Sex and the City!

DVD Features:
Audio Commentary

It was a short but sweet fifth season for Sex and the City, as HBO's resident comediennes found themselves affected by forces beyond their control--the pregnancies of both Sarah Jessica Parker (Carrie) and Cynthia Nixon (Miranda). A truncated shooting schedule to accommodate the actresses forced this season to be reduced to a mere eight episodes, and indeed, you can tell both actresses are expecting. (Carrie's wardrobe became more outlandish and more concealing than usual.) Still, the actresses and creators forged ahead, creating a handful of episodes that if short in content were long on emotion and laughs. Whereas the fourth season found all four grappling with various relationships, the fifth season focused on the perils of being single, with a new intensity lacking in the previous sexcapades. Carrie and Miranda wrestled with their solitary lifestyles, albeit with new attachments--Miranda had new baby Brady and single motherhood, while Carrie found herself in the world of publishing as the author of a real-life book of her columns. Charlotte (Kristin Davis) wondered if she'd ever find another man, while Samantha (Kim Cattrall) finally got rid of the one that had been vexing her far too much, hotelier Richard (James Remar). If the season as a whole felt less than the sum of its parts, those parts were some of the best comedy in the show's history, from Samantha's anointment as the "Michiko Kakutani of vibrators" to Carrie's stressful, one-degree-from-fiasco book launch party. (And fear not, Chris Noth's Mr. Big does pop up now and again.) The season's climactic episode, "I Love a Charade," found all four at the straight wedding of a seemingly gay pal (Nathan Lane) and contemplating their future with a wry, bemused tone. It was one of the series' best episodes ever, equally touching and funny, and grounded the show in an emotional maturity that announced that after all their wild travails, these women had truly grown up. --Mark Englehart

2.0 out of 5 stars HBO's pricing is laughable. October 17, 2003
I am an avid watcher of Sex and the City, I adore the show. However, I think other fans will agree with me when I say that Season 5 was pretty much the lowpoint of the series. I record all of the episodes of every season and watch them frequently . . . I haven't touched my Season 5 tapes since it aired.
Initially, it was supposed to be 13 episodes (instead of the normal 18) to accomodate Sarah's pregnancy. We were supposed to get 8 episodes in the summer and then she was to return to the show for 5 more episodes the following spring. As you can see, that never happened. We were left with 8, "okay" episodes.
My main complaint and its a big one, is the pricing of the DVD "set", if you can call it that. This is the shortest season of the series, 8 episodes, compared to the normal 18. Now why in hell would I pay just as much money for 8 episodes as I would for 18? I mean, maybe if they'd added some special features to this set to make up for a lack of episodes, I might consider buying this. However, knowing what I do about the Sex and the City DVDs I own, I highly doubt that anything has been added.
In short, I cannot recommend this purchase simply because HBO is asking the same from us (monetarily speaking) and only delivering about a quarter of what they have in the past (episodes and episode quality). Even though I love the series, I will not purchase this item.

2.0 out of 5 stars Season cut short September 8, 2003
Since season 5 was cut short due to Sarah Jessica Parker's pregancy, I think they should combine season 5 and 6 for one price instead of charging the same thing for only 8 episodes. I adore Sex and the City and will miss it dearly. At least I have my DVDs to watch over and over. I love my "girls of summer"!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars HBO is greedy November 8, 2003
By A Customer
I was all set to pre-order this DVD as I have purchased the first four seasons. But after seeing the other reviews and realizing this only has a shorten season but the regular price, I have decided not to buy it. HBO is just too greedy. I probably wont buy the remaining seasons either. I hope more people also skip buying this DVD. That is the only way HBO will learn they can't rip people off like this.

1.0 out of 5 stars What do they think, we're idiots or something? November 20, 2003
By A Customer
Like everybody else, I enjoy the show. I went ahead and bought seasons 2-4. But I saw 2 season 5 episodes (or 1 whole 3rd of the entire season for you math students out there) and they were the worst episodes of Sex and the City I've ever seen. I still would have considered dropping $15 on a 2 disc set just to catch up on the story lines, but $32 (ON SALE) or $4 per sub-par episode? You've gotta be kidding me! if I have money to burn I MIGHT pay $4 to rent the whole thing from my video store, but that's about it. Here's what I'd like to see with Season 6: A 3-4 disc DVD collection that's actually worth the *$30-$40* price tag because A. the discs are packaged in something other than cheap plastic that completely falls apart the third time you open it, and B. it actually has "extras" on the discs that you couldn't get anywhere else. And when I say "extras", I mean something more than 4 episode commentaries by the always enthralling Michael Patrick King. For example, the latest Simpsons DVD had more discs than any SATC release and commentary by Matt Groening, writers, directors and at least 2 cast members on EVERY EPISODE, and I STILL paid less for it than my SATC dvds. I'm sure they could also find outtakes, gag reels, and other material that would be of interest to us fans to include. I think even the most loyal fan should avoid buying this set and encouraging HBO to continue this ignorant brand of customer service.

2.0 out of 5 stars We are counting on HBO to lower the price!!! October 29, 2003
By A Customer
Okay, first of all let me preface this review by saying that SATC is my all-time favorite show. I am in love with each girl on the show and find a piece of myself in all four. I think the beauty of this show is the depiction of strong, vibrant women who are trying to make it in the world by supporting eachother and using honesty in their lives. They encounter the same pitfalls and joys that many of us have experienced and I am indebted to the creators and cast for taking the time to make such a realistic show that unabashedly addresses many taboo subjects. That being said, let me just say how disappointed I am that the price of Season 5 is as high as any other season. I understand the writers changed the entire season once they discovered that SJP was pregnant and I don't fault them for it. What I do fault HBO for is the ridiculous notion that we loyal fans won't notice the short, obviously slap-dashed-together Season 5 and spend the same amount of money to view it over and over. This was not a good season for fans of Carrie or Samantha...their characters looked a bit desperate at times. Miranda and Charlotte do not disappoint and P.S. Will some one PLEASE at least nominate Kristin Davis for an Emmy? All in all, not the best season and a silly price because after all, the loyal fans will notice there is not the same value here and do you really want to alienate the loyal fans?

1.0 out of 5 stars For this price you must be kidding! October 12, 2003
Not a great season although I loved this show, I can't believe they would even charge this much for a DVD with 8 episodes (maybe one disc) as they would for the three disc sets of the past seasons... they need to rethink this or wait for the release and add it to six, dont waste the money on this one.. not for that price... and I have them all, this is the first one I do mind paying for.
