It will not disappoint. This is the season of the urine test ...
Verified purchase
If you've come this far keep watching HILL STREET BLUES season 5. It will not disappoint.
This is the season of the urine test (freaking out a handful of Hill Street cops); a new roll call sergeant (Robert Prosky); and Jennifer Tilly playing a ditzy, sexy (imagine that) rich, ex-mafia socialite type. Who from the Hill Street will she soon be dating? Garibaldi, now a regular (played by Ken Olin)?
Also a regular for HILL STREET BLUES season 5 is Patsy Mayo (Mimi Kuczyk) and her early strange and uncomfortable relationship with Chief Daniels (Jon Cyphers).
Lucy Bates (Betty Thomas) considers adopting a young boy whose mother is a drug addict.

Action still aplenty. Humor is still here for season 5, too.
Oh, I was a little it surprised how this show (over 7 seasons) had some actors reappearing in different roles (see CCH Pounder: hooker; mom, Kene Holaday: black coalition; homeless dad ... ; and the kid that plays Lucy's adopted son).
Might be worth noticing for worthless, "did you know....?" trivia points.

hill street blues set the standard for police drama
Verified purchase
what can you say, this was the best tv show ever on tv. with the addition of robert porsky as the roll call sgt. it stayed on track. what makes this show is all te problems and going on in the life of the officers, always problems, with the officers, seems like there life is just as much as a mess as the people they try and help. if you like police drama this is the standard for the rest. m sure you get the popcorn

Wonderful TV series
Verified purchase
Loved the show when it was on TV and immediately bought the first two seasons when they were out of DVD some years back. I'm thrilled someone finally got their act together and made the other years available. I'm slowly working my way through the series so I can spread out my enjoyment of it. It was such a great show. Treat yourself and purchase the DVDs.

Outstanding Television
Verified purchase
Hill Street had been forced to reinvent itself by the 5th season and did so admirably. Major was the passing of Emmy winner Michael Conrad. He was peerless as roll call Sgt. Esterhaus. Robert Prosky did a fine job picking up the baton as new roll call Sgt. Stan Jablonski. New cast members Ken Olin and Mimi Kuzyk add fine support and the story lines are as riveting and clever as ever. Highly recommended viewing.

Memories....
Verified purchase
Great transfer. No problems with the DVD. Sound was very good. I'm looking forward to a good deal on Season's 6 and 7.
It brought back many memories that I had forgotten about. Actually, I guess I did not watch much of season five when it first came out because I did not remember much of what happened as each episode went along..
