Dharma And Greg Season 5 Episode 1

Episode 1 - [Intensive Caring]
Details : The fifth season begins in the aftermath of last May's car crash with both sets of parents arriving at the hospital and Dharma just out of surgery and groggy from anesthesia. The car accident has left Dharma with a fractured hip and temporarily confined to a wheelchair. Greg who fared better with just a few minor cuts mostly feels guilt and tries to maintain a structured approach to Dharma's recovery which unfortunately for her doesn't allow for skipping physical therapy appointments in favor of wheelchair-tongue-depressor relay races down the hospital halls. For her part Abby believes that crystals and chants around her daughter's bed might help. Larry calls it a healing ceremony; Greg calls it voodoo.

Details : Dharma finds herself inadvertently trying to compete with a visiting childhood friend. Dharma and September grew up together in a commune and September has remained loyal to her nonconformist ways such as preparing a salad with greens that were growing in the cracks in the sidewalk and singing songs taught her by Nelson Mandela. Feeling guilty over how much her own life has changed Dharma decides to get back to basics. First she simplifies her wardrobe; then she wonders what else she and Greg can do without—like maybe electricity or at least Greg's beloved television (just before the Superbowl). But what worries her most is a suspicion that September may have designs on Larry. And she's right—but they're not what she fears.
