This is the season I've been waiting for!!! The fifth season is when The Jeffersons really hit it's stride!!! Wow! There are so many fantastic episodes like when Florence gets to meet Billy Dee Williams. Needless to say she was truly his number one fan, considering he later guest-starred on an episode of her sitcom 227. Hint, Hint the second season release of that series is Long Overdue!!!

I'd have to say one of my all-time favorite episodes is when George and Helen get Disco Fever!!! I just loved watching George dance, but poor Tom Willis got a raw deal having absolutely no rhythm on the dance floor! I could go on and on about many more favorite episodes from this unforgettable fifth season, but I'll just wait with great anticipation until August 15th!!!!! Now only if Sony will get cracking with a complete first season release of Maude my life would be complete!!!!!

I have continue to check this site time and time again to see when and where the 5th Season of the Jeffersons were ever coming out. I was starting to worry. I have all four seasons and have enjoyed them so much. People don't understand that these shows are priceless. Thank Goodness they have the 5th season available and once I purchase this, I will be on the lookout for the 6th season. KEEP THEM COMING AMAZON! I love, love , love the Jeffersons!

I incorrectly mentioned in my review for the season 4 set that Jay Hammer joined the Jeffersons cast as Allan Willis. His tenure begins this season. Allan,son of Tom(the late Franklin Cover) and Helen Willis(the late Roxie Roker),has more of his father's skin than his mother's. In the case of his sister Jenny Jefferson(Berlinda Tolbert),it's the opposite. Allan first appeared on a guest star basis in a season 1 episode,played by another actor. George Jefferson(Sherman Hemsley) referred to Allan as a "zebra who lost his stripes"! Well,Allan finds employment in Manhattan and moves in with his parents. It is mentioned this season that George's mother Olivia "Mama" Jefferson has passed away,as did her portrayer,86-year-old Zara Cully. Louise or "Weezy"(the late Isabel Sanford) is now working with Helen at The Help Center(obviously they are both caring individuals). George still has his Jefferson Cleaners drycleaning business and Tom is still with Pelham Publishers. It is sometime this season that Damon Evans relinquished his role of Lionel Jefferson,son of George and Weezy and husband of Jenny. Lionel's original portrayer,Mike Evans would return to the series at the beginning of the 1979-80 season and depart again at the end of the following season. This season,The Jeffersons' "niece" or "nephew" Good Times had been cancelled and ME,who co-created GT with Eric Monte,would be able to return the following season. Hey,my funny bones will be tickled again when I hear "honky" and "zebra" coming out of George's mouth. George said to English neighbor Harry Bentley(Paul Benedict) in one episode,"The last thing I need is a honky on my back!". This season marks Sanford's ninth playing Louise. Louise debuted on an All In The Family season 1 episode.Read more ›

I am 11 Years Old, and I Have to Say That The Jeffersons are Very Funny, they Make Me Laugh, and I Still always Never Forget, George (Sherman Hemsley) calling Tom (Franklin Cover) "Honky", and his wife (who is black), Helen Willis (Roxie Roker), "Zebra", another thing i will never forget the moments is when Florence (Marla Gibbs) gets a brand new Job as The Executive Housekeeper, Weezy (Isabel Sanford) sketches Nude Models, Jenny (Berlinda Tolbert), and Lionel (Mike Evans) not getting a Loan from the bank, and Harry Bentley (Paul Benedict) return from Russia in The Fall of 1983, and Mother Jefferson (Zara Cully) giving wise Cracks to her Daughter in-law, Louise, it was Always very Funny, a Remarkable Afro-American Sitcom that ran on CBS on Sunday Nights (1979-1984), and Tuesday Nights during the last couple of episodes of the final season, The Jeffersons was a Very Popular sitcom, and George and Weezy kept 'Movin On Up' (1975-1985).
