This is, by far, the best season of Moonlighting. From the day waiting at the post office to find a man who's been sending a woman love letters to the trip to New York to has it all. Below is a list of episode summaries:

26. The Son Also Rises

David's estranged father makes a surprise visit to announce his upcoming wedding and to introduce his bride-to-be, who comes as a shock to David.

27. The Man Who Cried Wife

A man hires Dave and Maddie to find his wife, who's been making mysterious late night phone calls to him, the same wife he's sure he killed and buried in the forest.

28. Symphony in Knocked Flat

Dave and Maddie agree to each arrange what they consider to be an ideal evening for the other, but the concert tickets Dave buys from a scalper get them into nothing but trouble.

29. Yours, Very Deadly

Dave and Maddie are hired by a married woman to find the man she has been sharing a torrid romantic correspondence with and make sure he understands the arrangement is over.

30. All Creatures Great and ... Not So Great

A priest asks Dave and Maddie to find a woman he's become infatuated with during confession and whose latest revelation was her intention to kill herself.

31. Big Man on Mulberry Street

Maddie becomes consumed with curiosity when David announces he must fly back to New York to attend the funeral of his former wife's brother.

32. Atomic Shakespeare

What else can you say about Moonlighting Season 3 except that it was the best season out of the 5 seasons for the show. I think it's the best season in all of tv history. This season had everything you could ask for especially more drama and romance. There is the brilliant Taming Of The Shrew episode, the awesome dance/dream sequence in Big Man On Mulberry Street , to the 4 parter costarring Mark Harmon that finally brings Maddie and David together in the episode I Am Curious Maddie which is my favorite episode of the whole 5 years of the show. This is a must for any Moonlighting fan or Bruce Willis / Cybill Shepherd fan to have in their collection.

"Moonlighting" is my all time favorite television show and I'm very happy that it's finally being released on DVD. The legal issues involved in rights to all the songs Bruce Willis sings made it a long, arduous journey to DVD, but well worth the wait. The show has an interesting it began as a mid-season replacement, so season 1 was a half season. It ran for 5 seasons, with season 3 being the best one. Once David and Maddie slept together, it went downhill as the personal conflicts between Bruce Willis and Cybill Shepherd got more intense.

This season has "Atomic Shakespeare", which was one of the coolest episodes I ever saw any tv show attempt. Shakespeare is generally not a joy to read in high school English class (the appreciation and enjoyment of Shakespeare's works seems to come later in life)...but this show made Shakespeare cool for me as one episode used "The Taming of the Shrew" and Elizabethan costumes. The ending is classic as both David and Maddie yell into the camera: "I hate iambic pentameter!" Or something like that (my memory will be refreshed as soon as I get this collection into my hands and relive it all).

With this release, I hope seasons 4 and 5 are not too far behind in being released. Although the show slopes in its final two seasons, I still think as a whole, the 5 years it aired remains leaps and bounds over any other tv show I've ever seen. The antics of David Addison, with his cool boss demeanor and penchant for breaking into song (something I was happy to see Bruce Willis bring to the big screen in his otherwise dismal "Hudson Hawk" film in 1991), matched with Maddie Hayes all-too-serious business lady made for some captivating television. This is one of few shows in which I plan to own every season on DVD ("The West Wing" being the other). Even when it was bad, it was good. David Addison might even agree.

Actually, I was really surprised that Season 3 of "Moonlighting" was as good as it was. But then all of the stuff at the beginning of episodes talking about viewers waiting around for new episodes was a painful reminder of what it was like during the 1986-87 season where it seemed like every repeat was a step or two backwards for the series. A full season is supposed to be 22 episodes, and "Moonlighting" could only come up with 15, and since one of those was a clip show ("The Straight Poop") and the one after that the misadventures of Agnes Dipesto and Herbert Viola ("Poltergeist III--- Dipesto Nothing:"), you can knock that number down to an unlike 13. Again I find myself wishing that at least with regards to "Moonlighting" that the show had been a British import, since they are perfectly content to do a full season ("series" in their brand of English) that could be a dozen episodes or less.

So, even though on the one hand we have those back-to-back episodes treading water while Glen Gordon Caron tried to keep the show afloat, right before that point we had a three episode run of "Big Man on Mulberry Street," "Atomic Shakespeare," and "It's a Wonderful Job," which qualifies as constituting as good as it gets with Dave (Bruce Willis) and Maddie (Cybil Shepherd). "Moonlighting" was nominated for fourteen Emmy Awards that season, and unllike the previous year when it was shut out won for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series (Willis), and picked up awards for Hairstyling, Costume, and Editing for a Single Camera Production, all for "Atomic Shakespeare" (which was the most expensive and lowest rated episode for the show). The iambic pentameter show had another five nominations, but "Big Man on Mulberry Street" was up for one (choreography) and "I am Curious...
