If you like remembering the good days of your childhood, this is a must have.

MPI did an superb job of digitally remastering the third season of My Favorite Martian and packaging the DVDs as one sided discs instead of two sided discs like Rhino.
William D. Wolf
It's a better quality set by far than what Rhino released (no syndication edits or jumpy video) and has some nice extras.

I live in Australia and believe it or not, we are apparently the first country in the world to have My Favorite Martian - the Third Series (and the FIRST shot in colour) available. It boasts that on the cover but don't worry my American friends - it is in your NTSC TV system - and is ALL region so your players will have no region problems.

I was sweating off to buy a season or My Favorite Martian because I wanted it in colour and kept checking Amazon but no go. Found the set a while back at the local Target but it is around in plenty of other stores here (JB Hifi for example). Full price here in OZ is AUS$69 (about US$60) which is pretty expensive but I managed to buy it for AUS$55 which is still steep but I really wanted it.

Enough of that. What about it.

Well I love it. It is the complete 3rd series (32 episodes) and as an extra includes the orignal unaired pilot episode (1963 BW). It is great to see how Uncle Martian came to end up with Tim.

I'm not going to go on about each episode as I haven't quite finished it all yet but this set from Umbrella comes on 6 dual layer single sided discs and the other extras are:

Behind the scenes home movies with Pamela Britton (Mrs Brown)

Interviews with Stan Frazen (Editor) Ted Rich (editor) James Husley (Art Director) and Wayne Stam (Actor - not sure who he played). There is a commentary on one episode (Go West Young Martian). A Stills gallery and a few other bits.

Total running time approx 883 mins.

I did notice the quality vary a little between episodes. It looks like one may have had to be sourced from a later generation print but apart from that one (so far) the transfers are sharp and clean.

If you like "Martian" then get it as soon as it is available.

Cheers from Down Under

More than anything, seeing this set finally become available is great news for those of us who bought the first two seasons of "My Favorite Martian" from Rhino several years back...and then waited, and waited, and waited for the third (and final) season that never came.

The first thing to know about this set is that it doesn't come from Rhino, but rather from an Australian company, Umbrella. When it became clear that Rhino was never going to release the final season, Jack Chertok Productions (producer and owner of the the show) worked with Umbrella to produce and release this set in Australia -- but in a format that could be re-imported into the US. As a result, we not only get all 32 episodes of the final season, but we get to see the extras that Rhino didn't see fit to include in the previous seasons.

For those who enjoyed this show (and probably already own the first two seasons), this set is well worth buying. It's a better quality set by far than what Rhino released (no syndication edits or jumpy video) and has some nice extras. And most importantly, it's fun to watch -- there's an innocensce behind the humor in "My Favorite Martian" that is nice to see, and a pleasant change from the mean-spiritness of so many newer programs.

I ordered this 3rd season of My Favorite Martian from Australia in November, 2007 for $53 (American dollars) including shipping, and it has turned out to be great. The single sided discs are in a plastic multipack, as opposed to the cardboard packages that held the 3 Rhino double sided discs for each of seasons 1 and 2. With the exception of one episode featuring Yvonne "Batgirl" Craig, which, though full length, appears to be from a faded 16mm print, the episodes are very clear, unedited, and have good sound.

For those who are wondering... I received my copy yesterday and this IS the AUSTRALIAN import from Umbrella Entertainment. It is REGION FREE and in NTSC FORMAT - in other words it will play in ALL US DVD players! It is has 6 discs (no double sided ones here) in a AMARAY style case with a great 3D cover! I have not had a chance to watch it yet, but I know there were alot of questions about this product and I just wanted to clear them up.
The real title is "The Complete Third SERIES" In Full Colour rather than "Season". I hope this helps.

Probably the second funniest of the "fantasy comedies" of the 60s, after "Jeannie", too bad this was the final season, because nothing was lost in the transition from B&W to color; would have loved to see another season of this series.

Rest In Peace, Ray Walston, Bill Bixby and Pamela Britton.....

Finally! The third and final season of My Favorite Martian! For those of us that have been waiting a long time, this now completes the entire series. This DVD set is fantastic! Not only for the episodes themselves, but also the extras. The episodes look great. Some don't look as good as others but they're still of very good quality. The extras are worth the price alone. Home movies from Pamela Britton ( Mrs. Brown ) and Billy Blackburn who also had home movies for the Star Trek DVDs. Wonderful to watch the behind the scenes banter ( there's no sound ) of the actors and the way the sets actually looked. In one part, if you look closely, you can actually see a crew member walking towards Ray Walston with the antennae apparatus they used to make his antennaes go up and down. There's also interviews with producers and the actor Wayne Stam, who played Martin's martian nephew Andromeda in the final ( in production ) episode. Stam's interview is very interesting about the actors and even mentions a fun blooper to look for in that episode. This highly recommended DVD set will please any My Favorite Martian fan and complete the series for all of us that have waited so long for this. Thank you Amazon and Umbrella Entertainment!
