"This is a fantastic season. With Brenda gone, having decided to stay in England, we meet Valerie who is a friend of the Walsh's from Buffalo and turns out to be a backstabbing and manipulative girl who is into drugs and alcohol. Kelly is with Brandon by now, Donna and David have split, Brandon becomes the new student body president of CU, Kelly is almost burned alive at a party, David dates Clare, Dylan goes to rehab, Donna dates Ray, Andrea has an affair and cheats on Jesse, Kelly makes the cover of Seventeen magazine, there is a stupid episode with Dylan going into hypnosis and finding out he was Billy McCoy in the Wild West, and Jim and Cindy put their house on the market to move to Hong Kong.
This is season 5 in a nutshell. There is so much material in between and the drama of it all is as addictive as always. I love to hate Valerie, hate seeing Donna and David apart and I cannot wait for this release. It's excellent and all fans of 90210 should be happy with this season."
Goodbye Brenda, hello Valerie.

"Beverly Hills 90210 - The Fifth Season is probably the last great season of this '90s hit. Shannen Doherty left the show and a new character was introduced, Valerie Malone. The character of Valerie was played by Saved By the Bell's Tiffani Amber Thessian who just happened to be dating Brian Austin Green at the time. Her character is anything but a sweetheart, she's cold, aloof, and deeply troubled. There are some great gems this season, in season six through 10 the show dipped but I stayed a loyal viewer throughout. My favorite character was Kelly Taylor played by Jennie Garth, she always brought warmth and sensitivity to that role, love her! This is a near-perfect season so don't wait reserve your copy today, enjoy!"
Best season yet!!!

"For me this is one of the best seasons of the series, Brenda is gone and Valerie has replaced her, Dylan is diving seriously into addiction, Brandon and Kelly begin a relatioship that lasts several seasons to come....
Plenty of drama........"
Here we go again...

"Ok, I don't want to be negative about this show...or a traitor to my generation... I love Bev Hills 90210! I was a sophmore in high school when they were, at the shows start, and we were the same age and we grew up together. I watched (and taped) every episode for the whole 10 years... but those VHS tapes wear out, so imagine my joy when the DVD set came out... or not...
As I said, I have taped every episode, and I watch it now on Soapnet... and as you know like watching your favorite movie over and over, you can "talk along with the movie"... well I am that way with this show. I now know (but didn't until after having bought the first 2 seasons) that the box says in fine print on the back of the box that "MUSIC HAS BEEN CHANGED FOR THIS HOME ENTERTAINMENT VERSION. SOME EPISODES MAY BE EDITED FROM THEIR ORIGINAL NETWORK VERSIONS.", but come on!!! I noticed a wierd edit in another season episode and a spot here and there, not to mention in season one when all the girls have a slumber party and are signing along to "Mony Mony" but now the music is different... but The Senior Prom episode was seriously butchered! There were major parts gone... not to mention Cathy Dennis sang 2 songs at the prom and they cut the whole second song out, along with shots of her and most of the actors lines that were said during that song. I am very disappointed in this. The prom episode was a great one, not to mention a pivital part of the season. Part of the greatness of 90210 was the fact that they used new, up to date music for every episode.
Come on FOX... how cheap are you? We are all paying $40 or more for a set that probably costs $5 to make... You couldn't shell out some cash to keep this amazingly cool show intact in it's original condition??? And what are you going to do in future seasons??? There were tons of episodes later on in the Peach Pit After Dark where a famous music group plays there... are those hour long episodes going to be edited down to a half hour show?
So, before you start sending me hate email, let me say this:
My review comes to this = Yes, I love the show and Yes, I have and probably will buy every season on DVD. But Yes, I am disappointed in the editing. So to all of you die hard fans like me... be aware of this before you buy and watch it, so you aren't completly disappointed like I was when I first bought and watched them. Maybe they will get this figured out and stop their "editing" or "ruining" our favorite show!!!
***Ok, if you read alot of reviews... you may recognize I wrote this above exact review above for season 3. Well, my questions were answered. I am watching season 5 now, and the group Jade made an appearance. Yes, they did show them sing one song, but they cut out all of the other spots in the show where they appeared. Not to mention that the Ray Pruet character sang on the show quite a bit, but so far thru disc 6 I have not heard one note... one episode they cut almost 5 minutes of an episode just to avoid showing him singing. This is getting ridiculous... should we be boycotting? Maybe we all should just stop buying these DVD's and watch the reruns on soapnet until they quit messing up our show and put the full versions out for all of us hard core fans! Anybody with me on this?***"
