Editorial Reviews

All 22 Episodes of Season Three Hilarity

It is quite the scene at Sugarbaker & Associates in Season Three when Julia (Dixie Carter) runs for the office of Supervisor against a sexist pig, Suzanne (Delta Burke) brandishes a semiautomatic weapon to protect a pig of her own, Mary Jo (Annie Potts) decides that getting breast implants might be a good idea, Anthony (Meshach Taylor) gets nominated for Homecoming Queen and Charlene (Jean Smart) decides to drag them all down to Graceland for an Elvis nostalgia weekend. Alice Ghostley continues her recurring role as the befuddled and lovable Bernice Clifton, who in Season Three, among other things, leads the women in a wilderness survival course.

Created by Linda Bloodworth-Thomason, Designing Women aired on CBS from 1986 1993, running for seven seasons and becoming a premier landmark sitcom in television history.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excied that season 3 is coming out in March December 30, 2009
Season 3 of Designing Women has several great episodes. The Naked Truth- is where we meet Suzanne and Julia's nieces, who are just carbon copies of the sisters.
Mr. Bailey- the decorators decorate a house of a woman who has recently died and left everything to Mr. Bailey, her cat.
Tyrone- this gives more insight to Anthony's past, and how far Anthony has come with the help of the ladies.
One Sees, the Other Doesn't- a personal favorite of mine. Suzanne has met a man who is blind- and learns that even though he can't see her, he "sees" her.
Bill and Charlene get engaged, and married in this season- which makes for some great episodes- from the engagement and Charlene asking Julia for tips on how to be classy while Julia is at a frat party, to the wedding- where Bill and Charlene both get handcuffed to the exotic dancer.
I am glad this season is coming out- keep the seasons coming, Shout!

5.0 out of 5 stars Season 3 -uncut and funny as ever. March 8, 2010
I have almost completed the entire season 3 of Designing Women and it's only been out for a week. The episodes on this release are all running between 23:10-23:40 which is on par with prior seasons and I haven't noticed anything edited out at all. There are some truly hilarious episodes here such at The Junies, Naked Truth, and Full Moon. I can't wait for the rest of the seasons to come out!

5.0 out of 5 stars A comedy classic in its prime April 14, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Sadly as I was caught up in watching season 3 of DESIGNING WOMEN and was on the last disc it was reported that Dixie Carter had passed away. How bittersweet that last disc was. What a loss to her family and friends and to those who enjoyed her talent. DESIGNING WOMEN was on from 86-93 and had cast changes in the latter seasons. But the show really only had purpose and glowed as one of the classics in the history of comedy series when it was the original four southern belles - Dixie Carter, Delta Burke, Annie Potts and Jean Smart. Meshach Taylor as Anthony provided the testosterone to make the show great viewing for both sexes.

It was in season 3 that the series definitely hit its stride. There are 22 episodes and each character gets a solo turn in some episodes and there are many ensemble episodes where the chemistry of all four together rules. There was no standout of the four in this season. All sparkled and shined. In the next few years Delta Burke would be singled out and be the only one of the foursome to get an Emmy nomination - twice.

But here we have Mary Jo wanting breast implants and dealing with problems with her boyfriend J.D. and daughter Claudia. Charlene gets caught up in the Junies selling cleaning products and has some lovely episodes with her fiancee Bill as she gets engaged and married. Very well done. Julia drives thru a newsstand to support her first amendment rights and famously walks down a runway in a fashion show with her dress tucked in her stockings with no underwear. Delta Burke did start developing her sarcastic wit and superb comedic timing this season. Each episode had some great Suzanne moments but she shined in the episode where she dated a blind man.

4.0 out of 5 stars fabulous third season of the sassy sitcom August 28, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A new year, and a new version of the signature theme song "Georgia on My Mind" highlights the third sparkling season of DESIGNING WOMEN. This season also saw a re-vamped opening credits sequence featuring a sepia-tinted "fashion shoot", and the inclusion of Meshach Taylor in the leading cast roster.

Season Three builds on the strong foundations of the two previous years, and finds the ladies in peak form. This season sees Julia (Dixie Carter) run for local office and battle a porn magazine empire; Charlene (Jean Smart) tie the knot with the man of her dreams; and Suzanne (Delta Burke) finally catching up with her runaway accountant; but also a break in Mary Jo's (Annie Potts) rocky romance with J.D. (Richard Gilliland).


"Reservations for 12, Plus Ursula" - A trip to Florida for the ladies and their respective boyfriends is soured by Ursula (Rika Hofmann), a busty Danish au pair who has been hired to look after the kids.

"The Candidate" - Julia campaigns against Wilson Brickette (Jason Bernard), the leader of an ultra-conservative political party.

"E.P., Phone Home" - Charlene drags the gang on a roadtrip to Memphis when she wins tickets for a deluxe Graceland tour.

"Getting Married and Eating Dirt" - Julia takes issue with a New York journalist; and Bernice (Alice Ghostley) announces her engagement to someone who's even crazier than she is.

"Big Haas and Little Falsie" - An unexpected inheritance for Mary Jo must be spent on something frivolous, so she decides to look into breast enlargement surgery...and in the process, unleashes a monster.
