I am a huge fan of Robot Chicken, and I still love the show. Season 5 is stil the Robot Chicken we know and love, although as far as this show goes I'd say this season is weaker than past seasons. The humor in this season is WAY more morbid than in past seasons, an not really as clever as the show has been in years past. Ether sketch this season seems to end with the characters being viscerally disemboweled, and even by this show's standards the humor in these episodes is a lot more vulgar. For some fans this is going to be hilarious, but for my personal tastes I thought Robot Chicken was at it best when it wasn't relying as heavily on base humor for laughs. In some ways, I almost miss the censor bleeps and pixelated nudity from older episodes, because frankly there's so much swearing and nudity in season 5 that it becomes distracting (which might be in the show's favor, since the actual writing in Season 5 isn't as good as earlier seasons).

Don't get me wrong-- season 5 is still a lot of laughs and makes some great pop culture jokes, and if you are a fan of the show it's still a must buy. However, I hope that going forward Robot Chicken doesn't continue in this direction, because eventually it can only end up with the show relying solely on obscenity to be funny, and that is not what made this show great. I guess every show that lasts this long is going to have growing pains, but I really hope that for Robot Chicken we're still a few years away from a true "jump the shark" moment (as if anything with this show would be absurd enough to make me tune out).

Best season out there!! My husband got me hooked to this show and we always make jokes of several parts of this series! Very hilarious and we cannot just watch this show past 15 minutes without laughing out loud! Truly hope there's season 6 coming up soon!!

Finally, the first real Robot Chicken Blu Ray! (the other was just a special.) So, on of the awesome features of this BR is that you only have one disc. If you wanted to, say, sit down with a bunch of food and soda and do a non-stop insane Robot Chicken Season Five marathon, you COULD do that without having to get up and change the disc. You may have to get up and go to the bathroom though, especially after all that soda.

The commentaries on this season aren't as good as I remember ones from previous seasons being. They have too many people in the room and go off on too many tangents unrelated to the episode.

This season looks great and I'm really glad I went for the BR instead of the DVD. It's robot chicken. If you've enjoyed the last few seasons, then you'll enjoy this one. The special features are well done and even the menus are well done. Oh, and if I recall, it starts up without showing me 8 annoying previews, always a plus.

In my opinion this season is better than the last one... but not by much. You will find a lot more blood, gore, nudity and cursing in this season. There are some sketches wich I find brilliant but overall that is not the case, It's still robot chicken and I have to say that the production has improved greatly. I enjoyed it, hope you do too.

Robot Chicken and Seth Green are becoming my favorite pop culture things to watch. I love to see which REAL celebreties have lent their voices to the newest skits. This season starts off with a "Saving Private Ryan" type scene.

It's difficult to say what the appeal of "Robot Chicken" is...I guess that if you're like me, between 30 - 40 years old, chances are that you do remember the "Masters of the Universe", "M.A.S.K." or the "Thundercats" toys from about 25 years ago, right ? Well, on "Robot Chicken" you'll see all of them again and also much more. Is it still fun after five seasons ? You bet it still is!
Congrats to Seth Green and the R.C. crew for lasting so long while still remaining funny & wacky as hell. If you know what to expect, you surely will be enjoying the ride for the fifth time but people with a dislike for puppets (and/or the action-toys of the 1980's) probably better stay away from this...

I started to watch Robot Chicken as I got into college and the first few episodes I watched were really funny. So I decided to get the seasons on DVD/Blu-Ray and boy was it worth the money!! Not only are Seth Green and the rest of the cast geniuses at this show, they make everything so perfect. The characters are well designed and the scenes are just clever. I highly recommend this to any fan of Robot Chicken, Family Guy, or South Park. You won't be sorry!!

Robot Chicken is a fun show to watch if you want something to laugh at. I always been a fan of stop motion animation. This is mainly what lured me to watch this show. Some of the skits are crude or right out dumb. I had all the other DVDs and this was on sell for 10 dollars at the time so I couldn't pass it up.
