'Duck Dynasty: Season 5'
(The Robertsons / 2-Disc DVD / NR / 2014 / Lionsgate)
Overview: America's most recognizable family is back for Season 5, and their Duck Dynasty is bigger then ever!
DVD Verdict: Did you know that the Robertsons started out by producing a series of hunting videos. They then got their own series on the Outdoor Channel called, "Benelli Presents Duck Commander." They made a highlight reel and sent it to other networks. A&E was interested and ordered two episodes. They liked what they saw and continued to order more.
And then came, of course ... 'Duck Dynasty'! As they say on the show, authenticity is as rare as duck's teeth, and worth its weight in gold! The Season 5 finale is really special, featuring Jase and Missy's wonderful, beautiful little girl, Mia, born with a cleft palate. She is an inspiration, a true Robertson. That girl can do anything! With a strong spirit, Mia has undergone multiple surgeries with courage, faith, and family.
Missy's singing, in the song that accompanies the end-segment, is angelic. You also don't want to miss more of the playful John Godwin, blessed with a hankering for "ham samiches," and a unique voice that would be great for cartoon bears and other fuzzy creatures. Talent scouts should pay attention!
Sassy little Miss Kay is a delightful character all on her own, a gentlewoman, and cook of many talents. Hungry folks will find many tasty victuals in her Miss Kay's Duck Commander Kitchen: Faith, Family, and Food - Bringing Our Home to Your Table. She also has a special way with her rat terriers - perhaps there could be a "Miss Kay the Dog Whisperer" special episode someday?
She wonders if beloved BoBo and JJ might need middle names, and describes how they enjoy snacking on lizards. This is uplifting, wholesome, eccentric-American fun. Generations of the Robertson clan enjoy the fruits of the land, from frogs to delectable Duck-Wraps!
Oh, and in case you have never witnessed it before, goofy Uncle Si can dance and sing, Jack! Check out his Si-cology 1: Tales and Wisdom from Duck Dynasty's Favorite Uncle Thank you Robertson clan for sharing with us.
