The Facts Of Life Season Five: All 26 Original Episodes!

Blair, Natalie, Tootie and Jo: the girls are back in business in Season Five . . . literally.

Season Five finds Mrs. Garrett (Charlotte Rae) opening her own gourmet shop, Ednas Edibles, with some help from the girls. Meanwhile Blair (Lisa Whelchel) pledges a sorority, Tootie (Kim Fields) gets into an intense battle with her mother, Natalie (Mindy Cohn) experiences an unexpected death in the family, and Jo (Nancy McKeon) starts dating a rich kid! As the girls grew, so did the story lines and characters, making every season a unique chapter in each of their lives. They took the good, they took the bad and, well, you know the rest!

A spin-off of Diff rent Strokes, The Facts Of Life aired from 1979 1988, securing it a prime-time spot as one of the most adored sitcoms of all time.

In the last few years Shout! Factory have proven themselves to be THE people to rescue our favorite vintage programs from dangerously falling into obscurity as far as the DVD market is concerned.

After more than a three-year delay from Sony, they relinquished the DVD rights of "The Facts of Life" to the wonderful people at Shout! Factory. We got Season Four in May 2010, but the one I have been looking forward to the most (since Season Three) is this one, due out November 2, 2010.

Season Five originally aired on NBC Wednesday nights at 9pm during the 1983-84 TV season and was a milestone of sorts for the show.

First of all, in the fantastic one-hour season premiere (which I hope remains intact as an extended episode and does not include the syndicated two-part version), Mrs. Garrett makes the monumental decision to leave Eastland and open up her own gourmet food shop called Edna's Edibles.

Secondly, Jo and Blair are beginning their first semester at nearby Langley College.

The writers cleverly plot the premiere episode "Brave New World" in a way that has all four girls managing to be roommates away from Eastland, in a way that doesn't seem too contrived (well, in TV Land anyway).

The change of locale injects new life into the series, which was dragging a little in the fourth season, IMO.

The gourmet shop opens up a whole new can of plot possibilities and the writers take full advantage.

A new semi-regular character played by Grease 2's Pamela Segall doesn't make much of a splash overall, but her first appearance comes in one of the best and funniest episodes this season. (Blair: "I'm not afraid of you....anymore").

I had bought my daughter the first couple of seasons of this series because I had loved watching it growing up. I wasn't sure if it would hold her attention or not but she loves this show. Every time she finished a season she would ask when she could get the next. Very pleased with how the topics of this show are still what our children go through now and can learn from.

The Facts of Life: The Complete Fifth Season was announced 7/28/2010 by Shout Factory! This installment is released on November 2, 2010.

You have to take a bite out of 25 deliciously 30 minute "Edible" episodes. The Fifth Season (1983-1984) was the second major transition for the series, the first being the second season axe and addition of Nancy McKeon to the cast. Mrs. Garrett being very frustrated by Mr. Parker, Eastland's Headmaster, decides to quit Eastland and open her own gourmet food shop in nearby Peekskill, New York in the Season Premiere Hour Long Episode "Brave New World."

Natalie and Tootie gain permission from their parents to move in with Mrs. Garrett, while Jo lost a scholarship and can not afford the dorm. Mrs. Garrett lends a hand to let her work in the shop in effort to remain in college. Blair rushes Gamma Gamma Gamma and later learns that sorority sister Boots St. Clair (Jami Gertz - Still Standing, Square Pegs) tricked her into sweating about the election, even though she is a legacy, and then decides moves into Mrs. Garrett's house.

The show matures quite a bit this season since the primary focus is the store, Edna's Edibles, and not Eastland Academy. Mrs. Garrett and the girls experience vandalism of the shop by a trouble teen Kelly Affanto (Grease 2's Pamela Segall); visiting a male strip club where Blairs boyfriend is a dancer; illegal computer tampering with a competitive business; Mrs. Garrett learning she may be thrown on the street because her divorsing son's joint ownership, a very odd dream episode where the year is 2000, Mrs. Garrett being possessed and killing customers for much needed meat, Jo's sudden return of an old flame Eddie (Clark Brandon), and fights between the girls parents.

Buy Season 4 and 5 to show your support, preferably direct from the manufacturer.

The message I received today, August 21, 2013 from SHOUT Factory:

Hello,

I have forwarded your interest in future seasons of The Facts of Life to the appropriate parties at Shout! Factory. Seasons 1 - 3 of the show were released by Sony and we released seasons 4 and 5. However, due to low sales and the costs for the music in the show, we don't have any current plans to release future seasons.

Regards,

Antonio Lopez
