This Season 3 package consists of five digital discs, each receiving its own "ThinPak" case, with appropriate (and very nice-looking!) high-resolution artwork and accompanying episode information. The outer slipcase features the "old-time TV" look, complete with a "lenticular" (3-D style) image adorning the mock "TV screen". The snappy-looking 3-D image offers up a "motion" picture of Rob Petrie (Dick Van Dyke) falling out of a jury box (from the episode "One Angry Man", which actually was not a Season 3 episode, but rather a program from the first season of the show).
By the way, it's also worth mentioning here that these season-three discs are all "Region Free" (or "Region Zero") encoded. This is a change from the two earlier boxed sets of this series, which were only encoded for "Region 1" playback.
This third-season set gives us 32 top-notch episodes with Rob and Laura Petrie and associated friends and neighbors (even though the packaging says only 31), including the hysterical "That's My Boy??", in which Rob is convinced he's brought the wrong baby home from the hospital. Also in Season 3: "October Eve", "Laura's Little Lie", "Big Max Calvada", and another of my all-time faves, "I'd Rather Be Bald Than Have No Head At All".
All of these episodes are uncut and unedited. The FULL shows, as filmed in 1963-1964, are presented here.
Picture quality is excellent throughout this set. These black-and-white shows have never looked so good! Good resolution, detail, and contrast.Read more ›
Season Three of the Van Dyke show had some classics, including the season opener, That's My Boy?? That particular show has a punchline that still, to this day, cannot be seen coming by the first-time viewer. The interviews with cast members are fun to listen to, but especially enjoyable is watching certain episodes with a talk-over track supplied by show creator, Carl Reiner, and Dick Van Dyke. It actually feels like you're sitting with the two of them in your living room, chatting about the show itself. If you're a first-time viewer to these shows, you have hours of enjoyment ahead of you. If you're a repeat viewer to these shows, you have, well, hours of enjoyment ahead of you.

The writing on the Dick Van Dyke show was excellently done by Carl Reiner. Dick Van Dyke, Mary Tyler Moore, and the rest of the cast are such professionals. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Marmie
