Kids in the Hall - Complete Season 5
THE KIDS IN THE HALL return to DVD for their fifth and final season of outlandish, outrageous, and totally out-there sketch comedy. What could be a sad occasion turns out to be funnier, riskier, and more brilliant than ever. THE KIDS IN THE HALL: COMPLETE SEASON 5 finds the legendary Canadian quintet pulling out all stops, leaving nothing in the closet. Spoofing the business world long before The Office and Office Space, the Kids dig up laughs in the most unexpected hallways. From fan favorites like Buddy, Kathie, and the Chicken Lady (in a skit for the ages) to new creations like the waiter with stumps for hands or the hillbilly kicked in the head by his cow, fans find themselves laughing despite themselves. Experience classic sketch comedy as it will always be remembered. DVD Features: New Audio Commentary by The Kids; Season 5 Best-of Compilation Featuring Fan-Favorite Sketches; Cast Biographies; And more...
This is it, the final installment of the inspired mayhem and lunatic brilliance that was the KIDS IN THE HALL tv phenomenon (before the inevitable "Best Of," "Retrospective," "Reunion Specials" and other wallet-sucking formulations arrive, of course). But there's no such crass commercialism here, just an honest-to-goodness collection of North of the Border based sketch comedy delivered by five

The one I was waiting for...Jul 24, 2007
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.

KITH - Out with a Bang!Oct 09, 2007
By N. M. Naske
The fifth and final season of Kids in the Hall actually seems to thrive and throb on the artistic differences amongst the kids. There is a palpable creative tension between Bruce McCulloch, Scott Thompson, and David Foley, as if a behind-the-scenes power struggle rages (I guess it actually did rage), and Kevin and Mark come off as the comic glue holding the whole operation together. Scott Thompson's queer sensibility bleeds through more often than not, pushing the homophobic buttons right and left. This tension and the "gayness" tends to put some people off, but then KITH were always an acquired taste. The final season begets an even more thoroughly warped worldview than the previous four, and repulsive characters, such as McKinney's "Chicken Lady" get full-frontal exploration. There is a vibe that time is running out, so why-not-go-for-it, and KITH does, in a big way! If you're a fan, then this review is unnecessary -- you already own this. If you are not a fan, I wouldn't recommend that you start here, but hope that you'll get here on your own.
