I have included a complete episode list for season five of "The Dick Van Dyke Show." Carl Reiner starred in several episodes as the hilariously conceited and egotistical Alan Brady, including the memorable "Coast-to-Coast Big Mouth" episode. This show is truly wonderful, and I eagerly anticipate the release of season five, even though the series' final episode was quite disappointing. It's still a great show!
128-"Coast-to-Coast Big Mouth" Laura blurts out a top secret on a national television game show: comedian Alan Brady wears a toupee.
129-"Uhny Uftz" Rob sees a flying saucer and tracks it to its lair: the office above his own.
130-"The Ugliest Dog in the World" Rob and Laura try to find a permanent home for an ugly little mutt from the dog pound.
131-"No Rice at My Wedding" Rob and Laura recall their courtship days, when Rob almost lost Laura to another man.
132-"Draw Me a Pear" Rob and Laura enroll in an art class, and the beautiful female instructor has designs on Rob.
133-"The Great Petrie Fortune" Rob's elderly uncle dies and leaves him an old desk and a riddle that supposedly contains the key to a fortune.
134-"Odd But True" The freckles on Rob's back are shaped like the Liberty Bell.
135-"Viva Petrie" Rob and Laura have an unusual houseguest, a bullfighter named Manuel who installs himself as a handyman. 136-"Go Tell the Birds and the Bees" When Richie spins a few fantastic stories for his friends, his parents wind up in the school psychologist's office.
137-"Body and Sol" Rob recalls the time he defended his title as middleweight champion of the Army camp.
138-"See Rob Write--Write, Rob, Write" Rob and Laura become rivals when each writes a story for children.

If the name of Paul Brownstein isn't familiar to you, by the time you see his amazing restoration work in the entire 5 season Van Dyke Series, you too will come to love this man. He has painstakingly gone back to the ORIGINAL 35mm camera negatives and had each show digitally preserved onto these perfect DVD presentations. CBS never aired them in this way, TV Land doesn't show these films in this way either. It took a true television fan to do the work that needed to be done. In addition, the archival footage obtained is amazing as well. Where others have failed, Mr. Brownstein was able to gain access to rare footage of the cast during rehearsals, at the Emmy Award telecasts of the 1960's, commercials on the set, color footage of Dick and Mary from 1969, a scene cut out and never aired and even was able to get the surviving cast to do selected audio commentaries. These five volumes are the benchmark for any restoration / preservation television show ever presented to the public. It was recently awarded a best DVD presentation for a series (2003)and it deserved to be so honored.
Bravo to everyone involved and especially to Paul Brownstein, the best friend classic T.V. ever had.

Image Entertainment's splendid final effort in its series of "Dick Van Dyke Show" complete-season boxed sets provides viewers with all 31 episodes of the show's fifth and final season (1965-1966), which means that all 158 classic Van Dyke Show programs are now available on the DVD-Video format, via the five multi-disc sets from Paul Brownstein Productions and Image Entertainment, Inc.

This fifth Van Dyke DVD set follows in the stylish and plush footsteps of each of its four foregoers, featuring cool packaging and tons of bonus features. If you've got the other sets in this series, you're gonna want this one too...without a doubt.

High praise must go to Mr. Brownstein and Image for producing five such magnificent DVD boxed sets, and for getting them onto the market so quickly. Season sets #1 and #2 were both released on October 21, 2003, with subsequent releases occurring on February 24, April 27, and June 29 of 2004. So, in just the short space of eight months, every single episode of "The Dick Van Dyke Show" has been made available. Hard to beat that record.

-------------------------

SEASON FIVE --- Most TV shows seem to go downhill in quality (writing-wise) with the passage of time. For the most part, I do not believe such a malady plagued Carl Reiner's baby, "The Dick Van Dyke Show". There are many, many good-as-gold episodes to be found in the cast's swan-song season. Such as: "Coast-To-Coast Big Mouth", "You're Under Arrest", "The Curse Of The Petrie People", "Long Night's Journey Into Day", and the very funny Western spoof, "The Gunslinger".

One of the few TV series that ended with a bang. Didn't figure out why this series lasted only five years until I read the insert that came with the DVD; that only increased my appreciation of this great series.

Rest In Peace, Morey Amsterdam and Richard Deacon.....

I've bought 5 copies of Season Five and each one has had a problem. I had to return them all. Seasons 1-4 play great but I've had the same problems that others have had with Season Five(image breaks apart, DVD stops etc.) and it's really frustrating.

I don't blame Amazon. I have a really high end DVD player too so I don't blame Sony either.

I wish Image would fix the problem, I'd like to own a copy Season Five of the Dick Van Dyke Show that is the quality of the first four seasons.
