Duck Dynasty: Season Five (2014/Lionsgate/A&E DVD Set)

Picture: B Sound: B Extras: C Episodes: C

I requested to review Duck Dynasty: Season Five (2014) because I was really curious about what all the fuss was about this show. It's not quite as terrible as I imagined and in all honestly sums up the modern Redneck culture, only here what they are like with lots and lots of money. The show is light hearted and highly watchable. The most impressive aspect of the show are the beards that the family have grown! The focus is more on the inner workings of the family and the situations that they get themselves in more than about the actual art of Duck Hunting itself which I was fine with. In a way this reminds me of the show Pawn Stars, only not as intriguing.

This set features ten episodes spanning two Blu-ray discs including Boomerang Becca, Willie's Number Two, Life of Si, From Duck Til' Dawn, Burger Commander, G.I. Si, Jase and the Argonauts, Fowl Playhouse, The Big LeCOWski, and Stand by Mia.

From their home in the Louisiana bayou, the Robertson clan has built a multi-million dollar sporting empire manufacturing duck calls. True to their roots and not letting the fame and fortune get the better of them. Watch as they get Billie's goat at their Warehouse and run his new assistant through the ringer, hear stories told by the crazy Uncle Si and a ludicrous treasure hunt, and Phil and Miss Kay hosting a slumber party.

The transfer on the disc improves upon the original broadcast and is presented in 1080p high definition and a 1.78:1 Widescreen aspect ratio. The sound is presented in English 2.0 DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) Stereo. Spanish subtitles and English SDH are also on the disc.

Special Features are only twenty minutes in length but feature 2 deleted scenes and nine featurettes on the production.

If you are a fan of redneck comedies or are yourself a duck hunter, then this show is for you. As for me, I think I'll skip Season Six.
