Good season and Great finale,
This review is from: Ellen - The Complete Season Five (DVD)
There are lots of memorable moments from this last season of Ellen, but my favorite thing on this set is the two part tribute episode that served as the series' finale. It's hilarious and very clever. It takes you back in time to the 1950's as if Ellen's sitcom had started way back then. It follows Ellen's show through the decades, recreating the look and culture through the years. It's a star filled feature, very well written. One segment has various stars like Helen Hunt auditioning to play the role of "Ellen" before DeGeneres got the role. In the 1970's there is even an Ellen Saturday morning cartoon and breakfast cereal. Genius. Stars like Woody Harrelson, Jennifer Aniston, Tim Conway, Christine Lahti, and Jada Pinkett Smith are especially funny.
