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.

132-"Draw Me a Pear" Rob and Laura enroll in an art class, and the beautiful female instructor has designs on Rob.

134-"Odd But True" The freckles on Rob's back are shaped like the Liberty Bell.

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.....

What I won't do is bore you with info you may already know about the show. What I will do is say that this DVD set of all five seasons are very much worth the money. There are SOME nice extras, but the main focus is really the nice restoration and transfer of these wonderful episodes. The extras are ok, but it tends to be more of filler (e.g. The use of scenes from the "Dick Van Dyke Show Remembered" special and then adding the entire special as a feature when many of the scenes were used already to fill up other seasons' sets.)
Also, the lazy use of cover photos were disappointing. Photos from the sets of seasons three, four and five are not from their respective season episodes. This annoys me, but it's hardly an issue for the most part. If you are a big fan of this classic show, hurry and get all five of these DVD season sets. You truly won't be disappointed!!
