Editorial Reviews

STRANGERS WITH CANDY - SEASON 3 twists the conventions of the classic after-school special and follows the antics of 47-year old Jerri Blank. Back at home after 32 years as a teenage runaway, the well-intentioned Jerri picks up her life exactly where she left it: at home and flunking her freshman year in high school. Special guest stars include Will Ferrell, Andy Richter, among others.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite all-around season July 6, 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Better than good, it's gooder. Thats right, SWC Season 3 is probably the best season of this sadly short-lived cult classic show. Each character fully comes into his own. The episodes are:
1. Jerri's Burning Issue
2. Is Freedom Free?
3. Trail of Tears-Will Ferrell guest stars, Andy Richter
4. Invisible Love
5. Is My Daddy Crazy-Stu at his best
6. Steroid Relay-Andy Richter
7. Ask Jerri- My favorite from this season b/c of Noblet and Jellineck, but really all episodes are great
8. Sexual Harassment
9. Bully
10. The Last Temptation of Blank-Winona Ryder guest stars
Also I want to remind everyone that the MOVIE is coming, probably in 2005.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easily one of the most overlooked shows March 12, 2005
Format:DVD
It's a shame this show was cancelled in it's prime.

The 3rd season was one of the best (though each season is fantastic and holds it's own) season 3 had some of the most hilarious situations Jeri would get herself into. Getting an STD, a boyfriend who wants to keep her a secret, and having a run-in with a school bully are just a few of the wacky episodes in this season.

The reason I especially love this season set is the fact that there is a very extensive blooper reel on it and a dance sequence compilation, both of which are HYSTERICAL. It's a shame they didn't include blooper reels for each season, but this one on the 3rd season set contains bloopers from all the seasons together, so it works out.

Being that the 'Strangers' sets are so inexpensive, even if you haven't watched the show before, you definitely should pick a set up and give it a shot. If you like crazy off the wall, politcally incorrect and just plain WEIRD humor, this is for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars I've got something to say April 29, 2005
Format:DVD
Strangers With Candy is by far one of the most brilliant cult series. Its brash and overtly racist and homo- (and hetero-) phobic views made it one of the greatest politically incorrect comedies. The anti-heroic characters are amazingly perfect and no doubt about it, the fact that a woman in lead role and a head writer makes it even better for its subculture overtones.

Season three pushed the limits of bad political tastes to the edge as Mr. Noblet (Stephen Colbert) says: "Fidel Castro dressed up like Marilyn Monroe and gave John F Kennedy of case of syphilis so bad that it eventually blew the back of his head off". Or how about Jerri's realization that she's a Native American: "I thought that being an Indian had to do with ethnic pride, love of the Earth and the return of rightful lands. But now I know that being an Indian is about drinking, gambling and scalping". Let's not forget Buddah Stalin being Flatpoint's Marylin Manson and Jerri's 10 minute hunger strike to prove that freedom belongs in a cage. Jerri's use of steroids and her sudden growth of a beard will always stay an unforgettable image in my brain!

The DVD itself is actually not as impressive as the first two. Sorely missed are the episode commentaries by Amy Sedaris, Stephen Colbert and Paul Dinello as in the season one and season two discs. The packaging is actually slightly annoying having the discs being in two separate plastic cases although the year book theme is interesting. The bonuses are interesting but nothing out of the ordinary. The bloopers could have had more blooper/outtake material and not just a collaboration of outtakes and 'best of'. The dance sequence 'medley' is so-so, not to mention the silent dance sequence. However the menu selection as an old projection reel is very innovative.

For these reason, I chose to give the DVD 4 stars as a whole NOT the actual series which is a 5!

5.0 out of 5 stars The end of the TV franchise March 24, 2005
Format:DVD
Yes, it's in re-runs now, but we'll never get new episodes unless you consider the movie to be a new show. Well, this is the end and it's still funny, but you get a sense that they knew it was ending as they were doing the episodes. It has a slightly different feel this time out. It actually gets darker and more mean-spirited, but there are still some hilarious episodes contained and the special features contain outakes from the entire series going back to the beginning and it's truly interesting the see the progress, as well as a collection of all the interesting end credit sequences.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh Lordly Don't Leave Your Lady In A Lurch!!! September 24, 2004
By Kelly
Format:DVD
Finally, Strangers With Candy has found its entire release on DVD. Although Season Three may not be the greatest season of all, I can't wait for it to be released.

One of the greatest episodes is "Jerri's Burning Issue," when Jerri contracts syphilis, and her syphilis has crabs, and those crabs are carrying gonorrhea.

I can't wait for this to come out on DVD. It comes out on my brother's birthday, but I feel it is more my birthday. The best show to come on tv will be released, and I will be one of the first to own it.

Thank you Jerri Blank. You have given me three years worth of laughter, and I will never be able to repay you.

Amy Sedaris is my hero, and I hope others agree with me. I will always give Strangers With Candy my highest respect. Long live Jerri Blank!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not For Eschatologists Only January 6, 2005
Format:DVD
Amy Sedaris, Paul Dinello, Stephen Colbert and Gregory Hollimon all shine in "Strangers With Candy," a sublime spoof of those ABC "After School Specials" we grew up with in the late 1970s and early 80s. "Strangers With Candy" is based upon the unlikely premise of 46 year-old ex junkie whore Jerri Blank turning around her life by returning as a high school freshman after 32 years on the wild side. Each week brings some new "crisis," which involves fitting in vs. conforming, trying drugs and alcohol, teenage sexual experimentation, retardation and special ed, etc. Naturally, half-wit Jerri always makes the wrong choice.

"Strangers With Candy" was Comedy Central's most clever and politically incorrect show (even moreso than "South Park"). Along with Jerri are her alcoholic stepmother (prudishly played by Deborah Rush), a classmate of indeterminate ethnicity ("Orlando," played by Orlando Pabotoy) who Jerri uses for the butt of her racist jokes, and the amazingly narcissistic faculty, headed by Principal Onyx Blackman (Greg Hollimon), the black principal with a penchant for "fine white women." Blackman has a thing for Jerri's stepmom, but it never pans out, because her stepmom is as big a racist as Jerri! Swishy art teacher Joffrey Jellineck (Paul Dinello) and uptight science teacher Chuck Knoblet (Stephen Colbert) confound students with their learned ignorance, and the pair carry on a secret gay affair in the boiler room.

But Sedaris really makes the show work for her over-the-top earnestness in playing Jerri. Sedaris wins the Chloris Leachman award for botching up her natural good looks with gaudy makeup, harelip overbite, twitching unibrow, wrinkled forehead and padded hips just to get totally into character.

2.0 out of 5 stars This is just weak all the way around.
It's set in high school, but sadly seems like it was written by a high school English class. If this is Amy Sedaris at her best, she's lucky she has a famous brother.
