"I'm a long-time fan of The Kids In the Hall, and in the nineties I would tape the shows off Comedy Central and watch them over and over again. For this reason, I never really had a sense of what shows came from what season. So, with the release of each season of The Kids in the Hall on dvd, I would watch in the hopes of catching certain skits that would pop into my head and that I would long to see again. In turn, each season delivered classic skits, too many to list here. But with each season, I would think "well, maybe those skits you're looking for will be in the next dvd release." And finally, the fifth season was released. And all of my absolute personal favorites are on it. The weird game show, "Feelyat," Buddy Cole taking delivery of his new sex slave, Bruce shining Kevin's shoes and ruminating about his hands...and something else, the very clean town and how it got that way, Bruce being kidnapped and having his boots stolen, Kevin's character Mr. Tisane going through the de-teas, Husk Musk, what you get when you mate a cow and a pig, a loud, obnoxious American who needs to buy crab shampoo... That's just the tip of the iceberg. To me, the fifth season is the most perfect of all the seasons. By this season, the troupe had mastered how to effectively utilize television to get their comedy across, and while there are recurring characters from seasons past, they're not overused. There's still plenty that's fresh and bizarre so that by the time you get to the last episode you can't help but really feel that something was lost that we'll never have again when they wrapped this incredible series."
Great as always

"Any fans of Kids In The Hall will obviously enjoy this collection. To any new fans of Kids in The Hall, purchase Season 4 as well. It's very entertaining as most fans of the show will agree. Of course it's just a matter of taste, and I find that many fans of the show like it for various different reasons. I personally love the show for it's ability to present countless textured skits. Fantastic direction and artistic input were always present, and they were never afraid of going over the audience's heads. I believe that The Kids are as bold and intelligent as they are funny, catching even suspecting viewers off gaurd."
