Containing eighteen solid episodes of laughs, bawdy doings, and occasional seriousness, "Sex and the City, The Complete Third Season" continues the whip-smart fun of the first two seasons while enriching the pot with additional flavors and nuances. While we do follow the progress of Charlotte's new marriage, this season is slightly more tilted toward the girls themselves- their feelings, their discoveries about themselves, the importance of their mutual friendship- than about who they're seeing romantically. I enjoyed that added attention to the inner life of the core cast. I also enjoyed- mild, broad spoiler here- how the season closed on a subtle grace note, with each of the girls facing a new, uncertain road before them, a road fraught with a little scariness (as they all seem to think to themselves, "what's in store for me?") but also laced with a little hope.

I have always been a huge fan of Sex and the City but never bought the DVDs. After finding them in a new packaging and on sale, I bought seasons 3-6. I was surprised how grainy the picture quality is, even with upconverting Blu Ray player. The new white packaging has a set of menus. It no longer shows clips of the shows, which is a little bit disappointing, though nice if you're one of those people who tend to forget to turn the DVD off after you're done watching it and end up hearing the same 5 phrases over and over for an hour as you do other things. Now the menu is just a fly-through of the NY skyline and the titles of the episodes. I think the packaging is prettier than the original, but to most people that's not a big deal. I'd give the series 5 stars, though these DVDs probably only deserve 2 stars because of the picture.

As a loyal fan of SITC, I love Season Three. It has all the excitement and hilarity I've come to expect from the show. Some of the most important developments of Season Three include: Carrie's relationship with Aidan, Mr. Big's marriage to Natasha, Miranda's break-up with Steve and Charlotte's marriage to Trey. All of these developments are enthralling and wonderful to see played out. The only reason I don't give five stars is that Season Three is melodramatic compared to past seasons. The chase scene at Mr. Big's apartment and Carrie's (temporary) loss of Aidan's dog are two examples. I found those scenes, and others like them, to be a bit too over-the-top. But, this criticism aside, I still enjoy Season Three, and I think all other SITC viewers will too.

I have to admit that my wife likes this much more than I do. For her, it's an ongoing reminder of New York City life that we both love. We live in Munich, Germany, so we are seeing these episodes for the first time. This continuation series seems to be sillier than the 1st two seasons, and the sexual graphics are far more in-your-face than in the previous two versions. Probably not something for your 12-year old babysitter to be watching just yet. However, we find the discussions, humor and themes to be excellent adult entertainment with a unapologetic no-holds-barred attitude, which we find far more refreshing than general American TV fare. The shots of NYC buildings, parks and streets really add to the stories, and the quality of the DVD (both sound and picture) is excellent.
But for the life of me, I just can't understand at all what Big sees in Carrie. But then again, Big is no great catch either, I suppose. Ah, well.

You don't have to worship restaurants, martinis, or expensive shoes to enjoy the addictive indulgence called "Sex and the City". It is a pleasant, if amoral diversion. There are no real lessons to be learned, just a few smiles and glimpses of the high life in New York City. In this third season, our heroine, sex columnist Carrie Bradshaw, finds and loses and new boy friend, rediscovers and loses an old boyfriend, and another friend finds, loses, rediscovers and once more loses a husband. Along the way, "Sex" offers us dream-like visions of New York as the singles capital of the world. In one episode, Bradshaw teaches a class on the subject. She does a poor job; perhaps she hasn't really learned her own lessons.
Setting aside the fact that time, money and work seem to be irrelevant to these four women, this Seinfeld-like quartet offers four versions of the consummate thirty-something (and perhaps then some) single Manhattan female. The weather is unerringly beautiful. Money flows out faster than the alcohol pours in. Men slip through their fingers faster than the feisty foursome can find them. Carrie is oh-so-petite, easy on the eye (despite the unruly mess of roots and tones that constitute her hair color) and hard on the heart and the wallet. She is indecisive and inconsistent. Her brief `philosophical' reflections that center her column and the title of each episode disguise a life otherwise void of reflection. Samantha, the public relations executive, is sexually obsessed and without qualms and, apparently, traditional morals. Meeting an equally active thirteen-year-old girl only sets her back for a brief moment. Sam feels merely old, not chastened. `Safe sex' and any STD seem to have eluded her as she cuts a very wide sexual swath through the city. Miranda, now a partner in her law firm, has her own outlandish red hair and a cloying bartender boy friend who allows her to manifest her own multiple insecurities, be they in her career or in her brief encounter with orthodontic braces. She is the `serious' one of the group, the professional woman climbing the corporate ladder at great social expense. And Charlotte, the classically beautiful and `innocent' member of the foursome, is intent on following some self-imposed social-climbing order. She succeeds and quickly fails in each step. She may not have the stamina to keep up with the other three, only the nerve to try.
This series is certainly not for the prudish. The language is blunt, direct, and colorful, with some funny, crude lines. This is bathroom - or locker room -- talk around the coffee shop table. The Legion of Decency would ban it outright. There is no real morally redeeming value. The language is unencumbered but more colorful than crude. The sexual nudity is common (mostly Samantha) but usually `tasteful', that is, not graphically pornographic. These four women are less role models than they are caricatures that provide comic relief and fantasies for people who think that New York singles' life is easy and glamorous. For those who think the single, rich life in Manhattan is an idyllic existence; this show is the storyboard for that life. Enjoy the scenery, look a little harder beneath the surface, tune out the language and nudity, and you find a pretty harsh, unappealing existence, and perhaps some useful life lessons.

I enjoy the Sex in the City episodes very much. I have a perfectly good DVD player that does not have problems playing any other DVD in my rather large DVD library. However, in the middle of an episode I like, the DVD started slowing down and grinding to a hault. I thought it was unusual and bought another one. The same problem happened during one of the episodes. In addition, Season one had the same problem on one of the episodes. These DVDs aren not meant to be watched many times because some of them are very poorly made.
Very disappointing. However, I watch other episodes over and over. I know things aren't made as well lately as in years before but this is ridiculous. What am I supposed to do if I want to one of my favorite episodes which happens to be technically flawed. I can't afford to keep buying the seasons. Beware of buying the complete seasons for this reason.

I didn't buy this, I swear it was my girlfriend. Btw, that guy Big is a jerk, and Carrie should've done away with him a long time ago.

Season three is when the series really starts to pick up (imo). Without spoiling anything, I guess you can say this was the season of Aiden. Carrie no longer speaks to the camera in season three. The new box sets are much better than the older bulkier styles and cheaper as well.

Finally! The show in proper cases! My old cases were cheap plastic and they parole so easily and allowed my DVDs to fall out and get lost. Thanks to whomever re-imagined/redesigned the carrying cases for these seasons!!

This is the best season by far! No need to have seen the first two seasons to appreciate this off the wall series! Highly recommended for 17+
