Outstanding!

"I am proud to own Mike Holmes season 5, and 4 3 2 1 too. He can give out information as well help the people who needed his help. If you own a home and consider doing some fix-up, watch Holmes on Homes. He can give some pointers for do-it-your self man ( or woman) and you can judge if you will need other help, and what to watch for to hire one. But his show is also very entertaining too. For the people like me who do not own a home, but like to see that kind of show, Holmes on homes is tops.
Highlight episodes.
O-Fence-Ive
instead of inside, he works out helping over 50 homes in a block whos money was taken for a fence, and then he split. Mike and crew took care of it.

For Annie
A home was being built to be usable for a young girl who was disabled.
the girl passed on and they quit building. Mike came and gave what they wanted.

Ceiling the deal
A basement is re-done to have an office space and entertainment center, plus a "secret" room where kids can go with a TV and clackboard.

Out of the Ashes
a home the was partly burned from fire was completely redone. The more he did the more problems he came into. But within a few months time the home we complete.

Showing the cracks
A small kitchen floor needed help. But Mike went beyond the floor and re-did the entire kitchen, He never been kissed so much after the reveal.

and

Wall of Sound.
For those in the kind of homes that share a wall, the people was surprise how easy it was to hear others next door and just talk normal.
Mike re-did the walls ans made where it would be very hard to hear unless loud screaming or pumped up music. Mike was aware how much went into the job, but being a area you can't see, it looked at it end there was nothing done. But they can hear the difference.

Thia was the first season Mike added a female to his staff, and welcomed any others who had to desire to work and learn. The DVD also had complete 5.1 sound and shot in HD.

Well worth it."
The Best DVD Set of the First Five Seasons

"As I write this, the first 5 seasons of "Holmes on Homes" are available on DVD, while seasons 6 & 7 are yet to be released. I've watched all 5 seasons available, and it's been great to see the shows grow from the original 30-minute time slots to 60, and the introduction in season 5 of the high-def cameras.

Many familiar faces still make appearances (Frank, the electrician; Dan, the plumber; Craig, the painter), but Mike also hires on "Pinky", a young female apprentice. Throughout the season Mike shares tips and techniques with her and the younger crew members (including his own son) and gives them new challenges (Mike has Daman design a basement). All 14 episodes follow the usual layout of the series, but it's particularly enjoyable to see the passage of knowledge and skill from the "old guard" to the young'uns, who will one day be carrying the torch. There's hope for the future yet!

I find the "behind the scenes" bonus feature to be the highlight of the set. It's a thrill to see how the cameras, mics, and crew try to keep up with Mike and his team. After all, nearly everything you see on this show can only be captured in one take--construction and destruction doesn't lend itself to being repeated so easily--and sometimes the cameras get in too close in their attempt to capture everything and wind up splashed, dusted, or even busted by a flying elbow! Only the voiceovers are something that can really be rehearsed or re-done. We see all the work captured by the camera, but there is a frenzy going on behind it that we don't otherwise get to witness."

"Mike Holmes does it again with in depth stories about not only the work done on the houses, but the people who live in these homes. Season 5 includes two two-hour episodes, a neighborhood fencing project that demonstrates how accurate (and why) Mike Holmes is (O-Fence-Ive) and a wonderful story of Annie, who's parents built a special addition on the house just for her (For Annie), but never lived to see it completed. This group includes different types of construction not done in previous seasons. Well worth your time (and money) to watch the fifth season of "Holmes on Homes"."
