Season 5 was the final season of this series and it showed more storms and some great footage. Sean was in a slump, the loss of Matt Hughes had taken its toll on everyone in the TIV team, as did his wrangling with Josh and it seemed that he was losing interest in what he was doing for a time. Reed and Joel of the Dominator team were also at odds, to the point where Joel was kicked to the highway to make his own way. Thankfully, another Chaser was able to help him get home. Tim Samaras had managed to obtain a brand new radar system but it proved to be more hindrance than help as they were also hoping to deploy some new probes and the weather kept frustrating his efforts. Still, the chase went on. TIV team managed to catch a break and caught some of the most spectacular footage they were hoping for. Reed's foray into a storm without Joel turned dangerous enough that he decided to make up with him to get him back behind the wheel for a truly intense intercept. Only the Twistex team suffered a disappointing end of season, thanks to the new radar system as it was too delicate for hail. There was also a point where Joel and Reed found tornadoes a little closer to home than they wanted as the 2011 season ramped up and began to show some teeth. A great series, a wonderful finale- and my condolences to Team Twistex for losing three of their best and brightest in 2013. At least, this series gave us a glimpse of their legacy.

One of the better reality shows in some years. It's a shame it was cancelled after this season. It follows three separate professional storm chaser teams as they crisscross the American midwest trying to get the best footage and science data on the most violent tornadoes. Two of the three teams actually drive their armored trucks right into tornadoes - on purpose. The only downside is IMX filmmaker Sean Casey's bouts of immaturity (give him credit, he's under a lot of stress), which are played up here to add unnecessary drama. The tornadoes are really enough, and there is some lovely footage of severe weather captured here by a very fine field crew.

It's a little sad watching this, knowing what happened to Tim Samaras in 2013, but it's good that his work was as well documented as it was.

As a huge fan of the previous 4 seasons of Storm Chasers, I found it disappointing that with 2011 being the record-breaking storm season that it was, all of these veteran teams were so far off of their games. Tim Samaras' (rest his brilliant soul) expensive and delicate doppler radar system ended up being an annoying hinderance to his team's efforts. TVN's equipment upgrades were off schedule, and Sean Casey spent most of the season in burn out mode. Discovery's production team was as always, second to none.

Product description says the dvd is region 1, but when I opened it... it was region 2. Not a big deal, it won't play on dvd players but it plays in the playstation.
