When the first season of Two and a Half Men
was released on DVD in September 2007, the show's 5th season was already airing on television. With releases from Warner Home Video occurring every four months, the studio has quickly caught fans up on DVD releases of the extremely popular sitcom starring Charlie Sheen, Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones. Now the catch-up will be complete on May 12th
, when Warner releases Two and a Half Men - The Complete 5th Season
Running 437 minutes for 19 episodes, the video will be presented in anamorphic widescreen and the audio will be in English Dolby Surround 5.1 sound. There will also be Spanish, French, Portuguese and Chinese subtitles on board, for those who need them. Cost will be $44.98 SRP. Package art can be seen at the bottom.
We've also got a list of the 19 episodes included on this set, but no word on bonus material just yet. One of the episodes, "Fish in a Drawer," was written by C.S.I.: Crime Scene Investigation
scribes Evan Dunsky, Sarah Goldfinger, Carol Mendelsohn and Naren Shankar. C.S.I.
star George Eads has a guest appearance in this episode, along with Jenny McCarthy (Tripping the Rift, Singled Out
) and Robert Wagner (Hart to Hart, It Takes a Thief
), among others.
More special guest stars can be spotted throughout the season, including Janeane Garofalo (24, Saturday Night Live
), Ming-Na Wen (ER, Mulan
), Richard Kind (Spin City, Mad About You
), Cerina Vincent (Not Another Teen Movie, Power Rangers Lost Galaxy
), Ryan Stiles (The Drew Carey Show, Whose Line Is It Anyway?
) and Susan Blakely (Rich Man Poor Man, The Towering Inferno
As we said, we don't know about extras. So we have no idea whether the counterpart C.S.I.
crossover episode, "Two and a Half Deaths," will be included. It was written by Two and a Half Men
co-creators Chuck Lorre and Lee Aronsohn, and featured cameo appearances by Charlie Sheen, Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones. They show up while the cast of the crime drama look into the death of fictional TV sitcom star "Annabelle" (Katey Sagal), in an investigation which takes the search for clues from Las Vegas to Los Angeles. However, we figure that it's unlikely for Warner and CBS/Paramount to work out a deal to include this crossover, since Paramount's already-released (last October) C.S.I. - The 8th Season
DVD set did not contain the "Fish in a Drawer" episode.
