A musical comedy-drama TV series that gains momentum with each season, Glee: The Complete Third Season takes on complicated contemporary teen issues and explores them in a music-filled way that resonates with both teen and adult viewers. This eventful year at McKinley High School begins with the glee club New Directions recruiting more members, Coach Sue Sylvester running for congress, Blaine transferring to McKinley, and several original New Directions members finishing up their senior year. As graduation nears, Rachel and Kurt struggle through the application procedure to gain acceptance into their college choice NYADA, there are a couple of wedding proposals (one more unexpected than the other), and Santana examines her sexual orientation. Mike Chang struggles with parental expectations, Kurt and Blaine hit a rocky patch, and Mercedes finds herself at the center of an interesting love triangle. Coaches Sylvester and Beiste each reveal a whole new side of their personalities, a serious accident threatens to derail several lives, and, of course, New Directions takes another crack at winning Regionals. As good as the stories and characters are, the best thing about Glee is the musical performances, and this season does not disappoint. Broadway-inspired numbers from shows like Hairspray, West Side Story, and Dreamgirls are passionately delivered right alongside classic rock and pop songs from bands such as Foreigner and Chicago and iconic artists like Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston. There are also plenty of songs made popular by contemporary artists like Coldplay, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Jason Mraz, and Taylor Swift. The special "Extraordinary Merry Christmas" episode takes the glee club back into the past when times were simpler and delivers a fine parody of 1950s-sitcom holiday specials with songs like "Blue Christmas," "Let It Snow," and "My Favorite Things." The Michael Jackson-themed episode "Michael" celebrates the decades of musical contributions of an amazing artist, with songs ranging from "Never Can Say Goodbye" to "I Just Can't Stop Loving You" and "Black and White." The Whitney Houston-themed episode "Dance with Somebody," aired just following Houston's unexpected passing, pays tribute to a phenomenal artist with power-driven songs like "Saving All My Love for You," "I Wanna Dance with Somebody," and "I Have Nothing." This season features some unexpected solos and vocal pairings for the regular cast; recurring roles for Glee Project winners Samuel Larsen (Joe Hart) and Damian McGinty (Rory Flanagan), and contestants Alex Newell (Wade) and Lindsay Pearce (Harmony); and an amazing list of guest artists, including Idina Menzel, Whoopi Goldberg, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Ricky Martin, Gloria Estefan, and Lindsay Lohan. The "Jukebox" special feature allows viewers to select and play the musical numbers from each episode. Other bonus features include a couple of deleted and extended scenes, a "Glee Under the Stars" interview session, the "Glee Give a Note" check presentation and student interviews from Culver City Middle School, and a behind-the-scenes look at the "Props" episode. Also offered are interviews with Glee's newest cast members, backstage musings on the "Goodbye" episode, and a few choice words from Sue Sylvester.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Show July 6, 2012
Format:DVD
I loved the first and second seasons of Glee, and I believe that season 3 continues with the same standard.

The musical numbers are all very diverse and dynamic with some really great vocals coming through from the more minor characters as well as the main stars of the show.

This season dealt with some very important and relevant topics in today's society and does so in a tasteful and delicate manner.

It also goes more deeply into the background and plot of a few characters, with some surprising and shocking twists.

I will definitely be buying this DVD because I enjoyed it so much, and because it is a great show with an extremely talented cast

5.0 out of 5 stars A riveting season! June 25, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This season keeps giving great twists, laughs, the music is better, and it build towards an even more exciting 4th season. My only complaint is that that Terri who is one of the most interesting characters didn't make an appearance and neither did Gwyneth Paltrow. I would like to see a lot of the storylines get tied up in a more conclusive manner.

3.0 out of 5 stars My thoughts on the season finale August 14, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Lauren Hoffman recently wrote a perfectly critical review on Vulture.com of the season three finale of Glee which, let's face it, is the final episode for most of us. Despite promises of most of the cast's return, we know that the focus will be on the juniors who are left over from this year. Students like Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz) and Artie (Kevin McHale) will, more likely than not, see the show through to its actual end, coupled with the winners of the second season of The Glee Project. The appearances of cast members that everyone will be awaiting will be spread out thinly across the fourth season in brief cameos. The result is that we will never know when they will pop up, and that gimmick will keep us watching every week, same as I did with Jesse St. James (Jonathan Groff).

I disagree with Hoffman on the season finale that it was unforgivable to see such a poignant tune ("Forever Young") delivered by Mr. Schu (Matthew Morrison) so early in the show. I thought that was plenty appropriate, however I felt the complete lack of his presence elsewhere throughout the episode was even more unsettling. Yet Glee suffers from the addition of so many characters that to give them all a proper send-off would probably require a two-hour episode, something they could have easily done had they not already used that up the previous week with the "Props"/"Nationals" episodes.

Not to skip ahead, but what I did find unforgivable was that the end of the episode focused entirely on Rachel's journey after high school, assuming that she is everyone's favorite and that we all want to know where she ends up.

Before I get my head bitten off by some people, I want to start by saying that I used to be such a hardcore fan of this show. Season 1 was a solid A and back then, I used to see the show as a precious jewel.
However, season 3 was disappointing on so many levels that I won't be able to say everything in one review.

1st point: character development.
Sloppy and incomplete, no matter which character.
Contrary to what some fans believe, yes, there is such a thing as too much Blaine. They didn't even develop Kurt and Blaine's relationship, they just kept featuring Blaine in songs over and over again.
Kurt, however, was not sufficiently developed, not nearly enough. I won't spoil the finale, but his own story ends with a letter that will influence his academic future, and yet we never find out how he will handle the news. Don't get me started on the NYADA decisions which I still don't understand.
I also think that about 98% of the Glee fandom will agree with my next statement: too much Finchel.
Rachel and Finn have always been major characters, since season 1, but their relationship has gotten so annoying and cringe-worthy that it's exhausting. Finn's wedding proposal ruined the "Yes/No" episode, because it appears as if he's only resorting to this because he feels useless and irrelevant in other parts of his life. Don't even get me started on the moment when he said out loud that he had nothing positive going on for him in his life while Rachel was sitting right next to him. Major jackass moment. I felt sorry for Rachel on several occasions throughout this season.
As for Rory, well... Glee has got to stop adding new characters just to make the actors or the audience happy if they're not going to make them remotely relevant.
Last but not least...

3.0 out of 5 stars Losing Spark January 19, 2013
Format:DVD
I am not going to bother buying season 3 of Glee. Season 1 and 2 were wonderful but I feel like the writers have lost their spark. They have lost their motivation to make a great show. There were so many plot holes I couldnt keep up and there were stories that started then abruptly ended before its time. Its makes me sad to see this happen because Glee is a show that could be successful past the fourth season but I dont see it happening.

3.0 out of 5 stars Glee? More like Sappy September 1, 2012
By Jean M.
Format:DVD
The first season of Glee was great. It's off-key, witty humor and dialogue along with the strong story telling really made the show unique. The show had a light tone to it, keeping the characters well-developped and making them likeable without any heavy drama (exept for Quinn's pregnancy).
In season 2, we saw the show dip a little in quality. Season 2 had a lot of filler episodes that didn't move the plot at all like the Rocky Horror and the Britney Spears episodes. The major problem with season 2 was that the writing was much weaker, like the writers were running out of ideas.
Now, in season three, the writing has emproved since , but now the show that was once funny and quirky is now very sentimental and overdramatic. Glee always had sentimental moments, but season 3 is full of them. Even though season 2 was weak, it was still funny and close to season 1. This season feels like an after school special dealing with the "problem of the week". SPOILERS AHEAD: We deal with Kurofski trying to commit suicide, we see coach Beiste getting abused by her boyfriend and we see Quinn get into an accident from texting while driving and has to deal being in a wheel chair. And lets not forget the storyline where Ms. Cochrane and Puck have a fling and kiss in one of the earlier episodes. Even the songs are different. For the first 6 episodes, we don't get anything but show tunes from Broadway musicals, then, regular music comes back after. Season 3 isn't terrible, it does have it's moments and it does some things right, but the show went into a completely different direction this year. They didn't even include any major character development, because one of the problems other then the show being more dramatic is that it has too many characters at this point.
