About the DVD
Season Five of Glee aired between September 26, 2013 and May 13, 2014. The first 8 episodes aired on Thursdays at 9PM EST before moving back to Tuesdays at 8PM EST for the remainder of the season. The premiere was originally set for September 19, but was postponed for a week due to Cory Monteith's death.

The season saw Glee celebrating its landmark 100th episode in a two-part special event. The episodes aired on March 18 and March 25, 2014, respectively.

For the season, Melissa Benoist, Jacob Artist, Becca Tobin, Blake Jenner, and Alex Newellwere promoted to series regulars, as their characters were only recurring in Season Four.Amber Riley, Heather Morris, Mark Salling, and Harry Shum Jr. were reduced to recurring guest stars after previously being in the main cast.

Due to Cory Monteith's passing, the show saw his character's death in the third episode of the season, which displayed a tribute to the late actor and character alike. Subsequent episodes also dealt with his death in different ways.

Following Monteith's death, production of Glee was halted for three weeks. Consequently, the season has only 20 episodes, instead of 22, like the previous seasons.

My Take on the Book
Another great season of Glee. I was really impressed with the overall season. There was quite a bit of emotion in the season with the loss of Finn. However, the season itself and this DVD really captured the amazing series, acting, music and more. I had missed a number of these episodes during the season so it was great to see the episodes that I saw in the past and recover the ones that I had missed in the past too. I also have to say that I have loved sharing this series with my wife and kids and this season was also another great one for them too. All-in-all for any Glee fan this is an amazing season and DVD!
