I believe season five is my favorite season of the series. I especially love the theme song, and it's the most unique theme song from the series. And there were so many hysterical episodes, I especially love the episode "A Room With No View", Vanessa and Rudy have been fighting constantly and they on accidentally damage the roof during a big fight, and as a punishment Cliff decides to make them live in the basement until they learn to get along. And I love "Day of the Locusts", this is my favorite episode that includes Sondra, Sabrina Le Beauf plays Sondra and she did a great job in this episode. And there were also some big changes in season five, in "Out of Brooklyn" Denise decides she wants a job in Africa as a photographer's assistant, and in "The Birth" Sondra finally gives birth to twins. But as we have become accustomed to, there is no bonus material on this set. And the packaging is the same as usual, each disc is placed in a seperate slim case, and also included on the box are the episode titles but no episode descriptions. Below I'll list the episode descriptions for season five just in case someone is interested.
