Movie Reviews

The first episode on disk 3 may not be the right one
John Kitchen | Westborough, Massachusetts, USA | 11/03/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Great DVD set. Loved it. The other reviewers have done a fine job. I am bringing another issue to light for you.

When you receive this DVD set, and play the first episode on disk 3, you may think you saw this episode when watching a previous disk. If so, you received one of the old release DVD sets. You probably bought it from an Amazon affiliate such as "mnmsales", not Amazon direct. This is what I did as recently as August 2008.

Warner Home Video will fix this problem for you at no charge a lot faster than mnmsales will. Warner recalled the defective set way back in January 2008, replacing it with a different UPC. Why mnmsales is selling this recalled stock beats me, but they are not answering my email request for a replacement.

If your disk 3 is affected, call 1-800-553-6937 and Warner will arrange to ship you a replacement disk 3 and a reply-paid envelope to return the bad one. I guess if you don't return the bad disk they will want money for the new one which is fair.
"Why Reveal Spoiler"??

"I have been very excited about purchasing Season 5. However, this is the last time I'll read a review on anything here, because of the review of "Aunt Holly". Holly, when you review something, please don't feel the need to reveal major plot points just because you have seen them happen, thereby spoiling the potential enjoyment of same by someone who hasn't. It's the basic modicum of internet civility."
What an excellent season!

"(Note: spoilers for previous season and this one may pop up in the following review.)

When the last season ended, Adam (Rupert Penry Jones) had been injured when an ex-5 agent went on a shooting spree. As this season begins, Adam goes through a very quick (on-screen, anyway) recovery after almost dying on the operating table. He might be back at work, but his spirit is definitely damaged. Last season, his wife was killed (she died in his arms) and he now faces the prospect of raising his son alone.

Then, of course, he is shot. He later witnesses the unprovoked shooting of a woman he is trying to keep safe (she was basically put at risk as a part of an operation Adam was running). It is all too much for him, and we watch him come apart this season. Penry-Jones is superb here, maintaining that steely determination while he balances on a razor's edge of near-hysteria. He suffers through nightmares, stumbles around almost zombie-like at times, and basically disconnects himself from reality at various turns, and Penry-Jones does an excellent job of showing that process.

Other actors are superb as well, most notably the one who plays Roz. She is a new addition to the team, having been brought in after her father is revealed as a very bad guy.

This season deals with a variety of issues, including the erosion of civil liberties (an issue here in the States as well as in the UK), the threat of nuclear proliferation (the US is a bit of a bad guy here), and cover-ups on the part of different agencies. All the episodes are gripping and even educational.

Excellent season. Enjoy!"
MI-5 the Best

"MI-5 is the best crime drama currently on the air. It has been compaired with "24" for style and content, but, MI-5 is more intelligent and believable and better acted. They have carried this style of TV drama to the next level. From an American point of view, it is interesting to get another country's point of view on international terrorism. Also, to get another country's opinion of America (the neighborhood bully). This holds true for all episodes, they are well done in all facets of drama, producing, directing, staging and acting!!!"
