Season five of The Andy Griffith Show goes to both extremes for me. On the one hand, it includes two of my least favorite episodes ("Aunt Bee's Romance" and "Family Visit"); but, on the other hand, it has my all-time favorite TAGS episode "The Case of the Punch in the Nose" and one of my top ten "Man in the Middle." Season 5 was the final black & white episode and last season with Barney Fife as a regular character. Many fans probably stop watching TAGS after this season which is unfortunate because the color seasons are very underrated. Luckily, Season Six is going to be released on DVD May 9, so definitely check it out! Now, on to season five:

"Opie Loves Helen": Every season opened with an episode featuring Opie. In this one, Opie develops a crush on Miss Crump.

"Barney's Physical": It's Barney's fifth anniversary on Andy's force and it may be his last year as he is an inch and a few pounds away from passing the new physical requirements for lawmen. Trivia: When producer Aaron Ruben left the show this season, he was given a plaque with a 5 on it just like the folks had engraved on Barney's watch.

"Family Visit": Barney doesn't appear in this episode. Unfortunately, Aunt Bee's sister, brother-in-law, and nephews do, and they are annoying as all git-out.

"The Education of Ernest T Bass": Ernest T. Bass wants to impress his sweet Romeena by getting an education so he ends up in Helen Crump's class and begins to regard her as a mother figure.

"Aunt Bee's Romance": An old boyfriend of Aunt Bee's arrive and he is even more annoying than her relatives in "Family Visit." He's a person who is always cracking bad jokes and is never serious. Fortunately, Andy recognizes his bad intentions.

Thank you Paramount for continuing to release The Andy Griffith Show on DVD. This release of season five will conclude "The Barney Years", as Don Knotts as Deputy Barney Fife, left the series after season five as a regular cast member, in order to do films. I personally feel that these first five years were far-and-away the best the show had to offer. I know that many other people feel much the same way, too. I still plan to buy the final three seasons (six-eight), as-and-when they are released anyway just to make my collection complete, as Don Knotts also made several guest starring appearances on the show during the final three seasons as Barney Fife. There were also several other worthwhile episodes during seasons six-eight. Another thing that changed after season five was that the series was then filmed in color. Thank you again for making these DVD collections available and please continue to release the most complete and unedited episodes possible.

The fifth season of "The Andy Griffith Show" (1964-1965) is yet another admirable and very funny year in the eight-season lifespan of this beloved television comedy series. Season #5 is presented in its complete form on the five discs that make up this handsome DVD set from Paramount Home Entertainment. And each of these 32 episodes looks beautiful, too. Excellent video and audio quality.

All 32 show-closing epilogues are fully intact in this DVD collection (unlike Season 3, which has a select few missing). And as far as I can tell, short of digging up each original script (somehow) and checking all shows word for word, these episodes appear to be "uncut". I can't see any discernible edits, despite a disclaimer at Paramount's webpage for this release that says: "Some episodes may be edited from their original network versions".

However, that same "edits" disclaimer is not included on the back of this Season-Five box (as it was on the S.3 box, which does contain a few edits). Perhaps Paramount was just putting a needless 'fear of God' into fans for no good reason. Beats me. But these shows look fine (and complete) to me.

The average run time per episode here is about 25:30, with the shortest running time being approximately 24:35. So, if there are any "cuts" to these episodes, it must not add up to very much total footage, that's for sure. There are very few eps. in this set that run under 25 full minutes.

Also on the subject of "edits" -- Each of these thirty-two shows does contain its original laugh track (unlike the Season-Four TAGS set, which has a few laugh tracks missing). I diligently checked each and every Season-Five program to see if the laughter is present on the soundtrack....and it is there for all episodes, which is as it should be.

First of all, I too, was disappointed that certain scenes and laugh tracks from previous seasons were missing. But in my opinion it has been blown out of proportion. These are GREAT sets and I hate to see people otherwise excited about buying them not get them because someone wrote a heated review and blew the missing elements out of proportion. I hate that a few episodes aren't totally complete, but these are beautiful sets (particularly seasons 2 and 3 with the commercials), and I say, if you love the show, buy the first five seasons at least. Don't throw the baby out with the bath water, because if you're waiting for Paramount to re-release these sets "corrected," or think that not buying them is going to somehow send a message to Paramount, it probably isn't going to happen.

I choose to enjoy these 150+ shows rather than be angry. I am delighted to have the first five seasons to watch any time I wish. The transfers are for the most part really good. I still can't believe I own them.
