Default The Facts of Life - The Complete Fifth Season DVD Review

Blair, Natalie, Tootie and Jo - the girls are back in business in Season Five... literally.

Season Five finds Mrs. Garrett (Charlotte Rae) opening her own gourmet shop, Edna's Edibles, with some help from the girls. Meanwhile Blair (Lisa Whelchel) pledges a sorority, Tootie (Kim Fields) gets into an intense battle with her mother, Natalie (Mindy Cohn) experiences an unexpected death in the family, and Jo (Nancy McKeon) starts dating a rich kid! As the girls grow, so do the story lines and characters, making every season a unique chapter in each of their lives.

A spin-off of Diff'rent Strokes, The Facts of Life aired from 1979-1988, securing it a prime-time spot as one of the most adored sitcoms of all time.
