    This another great season of Law & Order. I love the show, the episodes, and the characters. The one downside is that this DVD is in widescreen. One of the previous reviewers said that Law & Order has aired in widescreen for years, which is false. It has only been aired that way since January 2006 (the same is true for Criminal Intent and SVU). These episodes, while shot in widescreen, were intended for full frame. Because of that there is a lot of dead space on both sides of the screen in a lot of shots. I still love the show and recommend the DVDs but hope that the studio redoes them in full frame and keeps the DVDs for the Law & Order series in full frame until they get to the 2005-2006 seasons.

    This review is more about the DVD packaging and presentation than the show itself (although this is one of the best years of Law & Order).

    I love this show. So naturally, I have purchased every one of the DVD sets for all 4 shows (L&O, SVU, Criminal Intent, Trial by Jury). My main complaint throughtout all of the releases is Universal’s poor presentation of the show:

    1. Double Sided Discs

    2. 2.0 Sound

    3. Full Screen (square) aspect ratio.

    Now, along the way, they have corrected the double sided disc issue and are now releasing sets on 5 single sided discs. Another nice item was that Law & Order: Trial by Jury (complete series) was released in Dolby Digital 5.1 sound (although that is the ONLY set that has done so).

    But my biggest complaint (until now) is the FULL SCREEN aspect ratio. Law & Order has been broadcasting in Widescreen High Definition for years, so obviously it was originally filmed in widescreen. However, when it came to releasing the DVD’s, it would be full screen!

    Those of you with Widescreen HDTV’s and 5.1 surround systems know why I’m complaining. We want the best possible presentation of our favorite shows!

    All you need to do is take a look at CSI, LOST, THE OFFICE, and other shows that put out their DVD season sets in Widescreen and 5.1 sound to see (and hear) the difference!

    But now, it apprears that Universal and the L&O franchise are taking a step in the right direction. Keep up the good work!

    Get used to it, everyone – widescreen is the wave of the future. The sooner everything is in widescreen, the better. So I hope the studios are listening: release EVERYTHING (when possible) in WIDESCREEN.

    This set of Law & Order, Season 5 this that much better because it’s in widescreen!

  4. I discovered some glitches on the brand new copy of one of the disks. Not a good selling point.

  5. Good show to watch and greatest twists off of real life crime story.
