The fifth and final season of ‘Fuller House’ rejoins D.J., Stephanie and Kimmy along with their families and friends as they tackle some new challenges while also enjoying the rewards of some big things finally going their way after so many hiccups. With all three of the leading ladies set to be married, and Stephanie’s baby now home with the family, along with some exciting new changes including the purchase of a legendary sandwich shop, the final season of the ‘Full House’ continuation series brings plenty of memorable events that fans won’t want to miss out on; not to mention a sendoff that’s almost guaranteed to leave a smile on your face.
Get ready to say goodbye to your favorite family once more with the fifth and final season of ‘Fuller House’ although perhaps in a more fitting manner this time around than was the case with the original series. With all three of our female leads having found true love and starting to settle into their ideal lives, the final eighteen episodes are brimming with heart, humor and promising directions for each of our stars that aside from having to say goodbye at all should leave fans quite content with the way everything is tackled. All with the promise of a triple wedding event approaching throughout, at the very least it’s a goodbye worthy of the beloved Tanner household which has held a place in many of our hearts for decades. Featuring plenty of fan favorite guests and of course appearances by nearly all of the key cast members from the original ‘Full House’ series (aside from Loughlin of course for obvious reasons) fans can now own the final batch of episodes on DVD and be able to revisit the entire sequel series anytime they may desire. Those who have been content with the previous four season releases on DVD should also be satisfied with the final season set on DVD which delivers quality on par with the others. Plus, those fans who might have been waiting to purchase the show now also have the option to pick up the newly released ‘The Complete Series’ DVD set which features every episode from all five seasons of ‘Fuller House’ in one convenient DVD collection.
Overall, the fifth and final season of ‘Fuller House’ is another touching, funny and enjoyable batch of adventures at the Tanner/Fuller household that fans should thoroughly appreciate. With a rewarding sendoff and some heartwarming events to help wrap up the show in the right manner, fans who haven’t yet had the chance to check out the final season will definitely want to be sure to do so. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s 2-disc DVD set of ‘Fuller House: The Fifth and Final Season’ in particular brings all eighteen episodes from the final season home with pretty solid standard definition video presentations and nice multichannel soundtracks. Any fans that have collected the previous four season releases on DVD and were pleased with what they had to offer should be equally satisfied with the season five release and will probably want to pick up a copy whenever it’s convenient.
The DVD release of ‘Fuller House: The Fifth and Final Season’ features a 16×9 friendly standard definition video presentation utilizing the show’s original 1.78:1 Aspect Ratio on all of the fifth season’s episodes. The video presentations look pretty decent as a whole, especially within the confines of the aging DVD format. It offers generally clean, smooth and detailed video presentations on every episode that even during the more populated moments never result in anything that’s occurring onscreen becoming negatively affected or rendered indiscernible. Overall, these are nice standard definition video presentations for the most part that should satisfy the fans who were pleased with the previous four season releases of the series on DVD.
The DVD release includes a 384 Kbps 5.1 channel Dolby Digital soundtrack on all 18 Season Five episodes. These multichannel soundtracks provide smooth, clean and problem free audio presentations on each episode of the final season. The soundtracks are fairly light when it comes to surround activity and aside from a few small tidbits such as music seeping into the rear channels, it unsurprisingly keeps the majority of activity centered which shouldn’t be unexpected considering the nature of the show which doesn’t feature much that would benefit from an aggressive sound experience. It smoothly balances the dialogue, music and other activity without issue and everything sounds clean and crystal clear throughout, never allowing any audio element to clash or contradict with another. Overall, these are more than capable 5.1 Dolby Digital soundtracks that deliver nicely in every way required of them.
As was the case with the previous season releases of the series, the DVD release of ‘Fuller House: The Fifth and Final Season’ does not include any bonus content.
