Default The Donna Reed Show - Season Five DVD Review

Donna Reed is back on DVD for yet another season of her classic TV series in The Donna Reed Show - Season Five. As was the case with season four, MPI has taken this classic series and put out a high quality release that is sure to please each and every fan of the series. Unlike the fourth season, however, this season is a return to episodes that have been seen in syndication packages, although considering that the series has had little syndication exposure in recent years (aside from MeTV), these episodes will be "new" or "lost" to many fans of the series.

The big highlight of the fifth season is Mary (Shelly Fabares) going to college... but the family isn't exactly going to shrink because of this. New to the family is young orphan Trisha, who follows the family home from the park one day... and just stays with them for the rest of the series. And she is more family than you'd suspect: she is played by Patty Petersen, the real-life sister of Paul Petersen, who plays Jeff on the series. So get ready to enjoy the 34 episodes of the fifth season of the classic series in Donna Reed - Season Five!

Thank you Mary Owen, the Facebook campaigns, & MPI for getting the 5th season on DVD. It's been a struggle and took years but you all did it!!!!!

Also much appreciation to Shelley, Paul, and Patti for sharing their memories of the show.

Thank you very much for the kudos.

Now we work towards getting Sony to either start releasing the final seasons it owns or to license them out.
