Four years after Mad About You's complete second season was released on DVD (and two years after a highlights collection seemed to signal the end of season-by-season releases), the complete third season of everyone's favorite neurotic couple is finally on DVD. If Paul (Paul Reiser) and Jamie (Helen Hunt) Buchman don't drive each other nuts, they'll do it to their British neighbors, or the whole building, such as when an attempt to steal cable TV goes awry ("Pandora's Box"). Not to mention their whole crazy cast of characters, including Jamie's useless sister Lisa (Anne Ramsay), Paul's shifty cousin Ira (John Pankow), Paul's parents (Cynthia Harris and Louis Zorich), Jamie's parents (Theresa Fuller and John Carlin, replaced in later years by the stunt casting of Carol Burnett and Carol O'Connor), the building super (Jerry Adler), Jamie's best friend Fran (Leila Kenzie), and supremely clueless waitress Ursula (Lisa Kudrow). Some of the episodes had appeared on the highlights collection, such as the zany Thanksgiving dinner ("Giblets for Murray"), Paul's reality TV show in which he turns the camera on Jamie and himself ("Our Fifteen Minutes"), and Carl Reiner's appearance as a TV legend ("The Alan Brady Show"). But others are finally seeing the DVD daylight, including "The Ride Home," in which Paul and Jamie take a cab ride and recount, from different perspectives, how Fran's birthday party turned into a disaster involving guest stars Wendie Malick and Eric Stoltz. In the two-part "Mad About You," they flash back to the preparation for their wedding, and Paul flashes back to birthdays from hell in "Cake Fear." Cyndi Lauper returns as Ira's ex-wife (a guest appearance for which she won an Emmy, as did Reiner) in "Money Changes Everything" and Stoltz turns Jamie into a comic-book character ("My Boyfriend's Back"). Then in the two-part season finale, they're transported It's a Wonderful Life-style into a world in which they'd never met ("Up in Smoke").

Does it matter that the set has no bonus features? Maybe not so much. The bells and whistles of the Mad About You Collection were nice, but they don't compare to having a complete season's worth of episodes on DVD. We want Paul and Jamie, with their hilarious and touching quirks and chemistry, just as we watched them on TV. That's all we're saying. --David Horiuchi

Product Description

Greenwich Village newlyweds Jamie and Paul Buchman (Academy Award winner Helen Hunt and Paul Reiser) reach new heights of hilarity and neurosis in the third season of this Emmy Award-winning comedy series. With lovable characters in both achingly real and hilariously unreal situations, this smartly written sitcom showcases a Manhattan couple trying their hardest to keep love alive in the midst of all the mad, mad, mad, mad, madness that modern marriage can bring!

5.0 out of 5 stars THANK YOU! Ahem. February 25, 2007
Format:DVD
MAY's fan base is devoted and vocal. The highest-rated review I've written on Amazon (110+ positives as of today) was a double-barreled blast at the "Best Of" hodgepodge released a few years back. With so much popularity, it's been a mystery why the third season took four years - FOUR YEARS - to be released. Well, it's not really a mystery: Sales have been low. But it finally has been and we're going to be gracious to Sony. Or at least try.

I don't even care anymore about special features. They cost hundreds of thousands to produce and I don't want to give any excuses for further delays. The resolution on this set is back to season one's low standards in order to cram 24 eps onto three discs. Fine. It's better than no episodes at all.

One plus: I'm happy this set has Play All. It should be illegal to not have that function on a DVD set.

To the fans: Sony ponied up for this. Now you have to buy it or we get no more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you thank you thank you!!! January 14, 2007
Format:DVD
I'll just echo what everyone else has already said. Seeing the 'Best-of' Collection come out seemed to pretty much spell the end of the Season boxed sets, without giving the show a chance to get to its best seasons.

Season Three is absolutely Mad About You at its very very best!!

The show's very best episodes are here in Season 3:

Our Fifteen Minutes, Two Tickets to Paradise, Cake Fear and the show's absolute best moment, the hour-long season finale (an 'Its A Wonderful Life-ish') 'Up In Smoke', where Jamie and Paul see what life would have been like if they'd never met.

The stars are at their very best, and the supporting cast is given its best work in the show's run. The quality of Season 3 is so high, that the 'good' work in the remaining seasons pales by comparison.

So, it's good?

That's what I'm saying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally!! December 29, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I had completely given up hope for a season three set. Especially when the "best of" collection was released, which was great... but this wonderful series deserves a season-by-season treatment. The only complaint I have is the lack of any "extras" on any of the season sets, but that's a minor gripe. If you want commentary and inside scoop, the four disc "Mad About You Collection" has plenty. I've just pre-ordered season three and if you're a fan of the show and want to see a season four, I suggest you do the same. The main reason for the huge gap between releases was due to poor sales of seasons one and two.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very happy to see this release! February 1, 2007
Format:DVD
Like the other reviewers, I was worried when they produced a "best-of" set, that they were never going to go back to putting out entire season collections of "Mad About You." What a great show this was in its best seasons. Yes, it got disappointing in the final couple of years with its dependence on big name guest stars and Paul Reiser's insistence on leading Paul and Jamie's relationship towards infidelity and big, serious plot lines (what the hell was he thinking?). But during its prime, this was about as good a sitcom as you'll ever find.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's About Time May 20, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Well, I cannot add anything to the fact that this is a stellar series with a great story arc and cast.

Now all we need is seasons 4 through 7 to be released, and the fact that they've come up off of season 3 is indicative that this will eventually happen.

5.0 out of 5 stars ...jump into the not-so-final frontier... March 16, 2007
By rocky-o
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
hey...we can breathe again...

someone wiser (and richer) than us decided it was time to release season three...(now let's not wait many more birthdays before the rest of the troops arrive, o.k.?)...

i for one, am exstatic about the release of this season, specifically for the "up in smoke" two-parter...i just always thought that that was one of the coolest episodes...

also, this season really entrenched john pankow into the fold, and all i can say is...more ira, better shows...

and this season was also depth-charging the characters, leading them into what would follow...

so what's not to love...(true, the packaging is skimpy, and the extras are non-existant, but we knew that from season one and two, and would be one of the few reasons for the 'collection' box...)

so, think about it...new york, buchmans, ira, fran...throw in pizza and an onion bagel and we'll call it even...

5.0 out of 5 stars best yet February 18, 2007
Format:DVD
This show just keeps getting better. By the third season the cast is beginning to gel more and you feel the cast is more like family. By the third season the characters personalities are set and you know who they are. I am so glad Sony decided to release the rest of the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars I forgot how much I love this show July 21, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Although the show can be quirky and there are a few episodes (overall) that I don't like, I find myself drawn to this sitcom as much as I am to Seinfeld or Everybody Loves Raymond. The assortment of talented character actors along with Paul & Jamie just make this sitcom hilarious. I have watched many a re-run over the years and am glad they finally released the 3rd season and can only hope they continue on.

If you've never watched the show, find some re-runs on TV before committing to the DVDs or rent some. I find the show appealing because it is about two obsessive compsulsive people and their adventures in life - from dealing with their neighbors to their crazy friends and family. The sitcom did suffer some low points along the way, as most long-running shows do. Still, I think you'll like it if you give it a try.
