 Designing Women: The Complete Fifth Season


  Review by Suzanne 11/16/11

I always enjoyed watching this show. I didn't watch it in the 80's, but later, in reruns. It is very funny, and it also manages to talk about many feminist issues. The actresses are great on the show and do a wonderful job. It's much more than just a younger version of "Golden Girls"! Also, it is one of the few realistic shows set in the south.

Although the women, of course, are the main characters, my favorite was always Anthony. He just cracked me up.

The fifth season is when the show was at its prime. I'm glad Shout! Factory is bringing these out for the fans. The show is still very funny, even though it's over 20 years old.

Unfortunately, the DVD does not have any extras or features. That is too bad, especially since most of the cast is still alive and would probably be happy to talk about the show.

Nonetheless, any fan of good comedy should love this set!
