Product Description

Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie are camp counselors in this fifth season of the E! Entertainment series.

Amazon.com

Before Nicole Richie became a mommy and prior to Paris Hilton's brief but well-publicized incarceration, there was the fifth season of The Simple Life. In the 10 episodes that aired from May to August 2007, the former frenemies are again best friends forever and wreaking havoc in a summer camp-type situation. Because this is a reality series (wink, wink), the high-maintenance blondes are placed in fish-out-of-water scenarios that poke a little fun at themselves, but mostly mocks the real "simple" people they're trying to fit in with (at least on camera). Though the show is called The Simple Life, Hilton and Richie go out of their way to complicate matters. When they help run a fat camp, the rail-thin ditzes sabotage their clients' weight loss goals by taking them out for junk food. They teach young pageant girls how to flip the bird. And we won't even get into the anatomy lessons. But none of that is as repugnant as when Hilton coaches an 11-year-old would-be Lothario to pick up women... using a six-year-old girl as bait. There are plenty of actresses who aren't particularly good thespians, but they have a likable presence that makes them pleasant to watch on the screen. There is none of that here: Neither Richie or Hilton are good enough actors to make the viewer believe that any of this is real. And neither is interesting enough to make us forget that there really isn't a good reason to watch them do anything, especially when their humor is based on making fun of everyone who isn't them. That's not hot. --Jae-Ha Kim

I have every season of The Simple Life and I have enjoyed the first seasons until season 4, when Paris and Nicole had their feud. But even though they didn't work together the season was fine. So now that they got together again to make season 5, I thought that the show was going to be really funny. But I really found it not so funny. This time they go to camp and there are not really fun scenes. I think that one of reasons can be, that they are in another stage of their lifes. I mean they are in their late 20's so making stupid things (Let's be honest. The show was fun because they were always making stupid things. Funny but stupid) is not so funny any more. And the other I think, was that there was nothing exciting in the stories that they made for this season.
I heard that season 5 is the closing season of the series. I think that it wasn't a good idea to end a show that had had success without closing it big.
Finally I must say that the DVD production is not good at all. It doesn't have special features. You can only find the usual DVD enhancements such as scene seletions or subtitles (this one includes subtitles in English, Spanish and French).
If you are a follower of the show, buy this one but if you want to buy a season for any reason. Try the first three seasons (the best ones for me are season 2 and 3).

With the completely noticable scriptedness of Season 5, (the band that is supposedly Hunter's friends that he hires in the Season finale to woo Paris is the same band that Nichole uses for the little boys birthday party in Season 4- now I highly doubt that is a coincidence) the Simple Life still delivers laughs. Although not the strongest Season, it definately makes up for Season 4. But maybe it's time to call it quits girls. We love you, but you just aren't as funny scripted.

The final season of The Simple Life was not as good as the others, but it was still funny. You can really tell how fake this season was. It features all of the episodes, but it does not contain the original extended premiere that only aired once. It contains the shortened syndicated version. It also does not contain an episode guide insert like all of the previous seasons and does not contain any special features like the last 3 seasons. Pretty good show, but a bad DVD release.

Some people thought seasons four and five were less funny. We dont agree, each season has it's own appeal and material that made it different from the other seasons of Simple Life. They're all funny! We still watch all of them. Pick any season of the Simple Life and it's still the best reality show out there.

This is the best season of the Simple Life, because this focuses more on the girls building people up, than them screwing things up. There are still some crazy moments, but more than the predictable "antics" of previous seasons, they are things that everyone can laugh at. Truly the closest "The Simple Life" comes to being heartwarming.

Loved "The Simple Life" series! Although this was definitely the worst of the series, Paris and Nicole are still very entertaining. Even though you know most it is set-up in all seasons, it was as if they didn't even try to hide the fact during this season. Completes my set, so I am happy with it!
