If you're not already into this highly addictive saga of lesbian friends in LA then this set probably isn't the best place to start. The personalities of the characters and their entwined histories and love-lives provides an extremely rich background to the storyline of this fifth series of the show, so you would miss much of the fun by jumping in at this point. I'd suggest watching Series 1 at least to get some background.
If, however, you have been following this ground-breaking and popular show then by now you'll be longing to hear the latest adventures of Shane (and this does not disappoint!), Tina and Bette (or not?), and the rest of crew. The cast look as good as ever and the storyline doesn't shy away from awkward subjects (e.g. the 'gays in the military' storyline for Alice's lover). We want more!
