5.0 out of 5 stars The Donna Reed Show Season 3 is quickly here! August 8, 2009
Verified Purchase
Wow, talk about fast releases! I am not even finished viewing The Donna Reed Show's Second Season and Arts Alliance announced that Season Three will be available to purchase on December 1st,2009! In this Season 3, there are 38 episodes which will be featured on 4 discs with bonus material. With only 5 more seasons to follow, it looks like we'll have The Donna Reed Show's complete series faster than any series ever put on dvd. I just hope in all this speed that they keep the film quality as good as the first 2 seasons, as the quality is good, but not great. After seeing The Lucy Show's remastered quality that is almost pristine perfect, this show looks passably good, and I hope they keep it this way.

In this third season, daughter Mary is now 16 and learning to drive. Brother Jeff is now a teenager himself at age 13. Donna Stone starts to show a little "woman's liberation" when she wants to start her own business and teaches a Japanese Geisha wife how to become more American by not catering so much to her husband. There are great guest star appearances as well by Jay North as Dennis the Menace and poor Mr. Wilson, along with Tony Martin, Harvey Korman, Jack Albertson, George Sidney and more. It's another great season in the Stone family as you watch family life in America in 1960 and 1961!

Starring Are:
Donna Stone-Donna Reed
Dr. Alex Stone-Carl Betz
Mary Stone-Shelley Fabares
Jeff Stone-Paul Petersen

1.(15 Sep 1960) WEEKEND-A weekend at Lakeview Lodge isn't as great as it was advertised to be.
2.(22 Sep 1960) THE MYSTERY WOMAN-Donna can't recall a woman she saw at lunch whom she hasn't seen in 13 years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great news that season 3 is coming out... August 4, 2009
By Chloe
and so quickly! Wow, nice not having to wait forever for subsequent seasons to be released! This series is highly recommended to fans of wholesome family sitcoms of the 1950s. I watched this show for years when it was running on Nick at Nite back in the mid 1980s & it's been virtually extinct in reruns ever since, so to have this on DVD & to acquire & own all seasons is a MUST for those of us who truly appreciate classic television from a time that is so precious. The Donna Reed Show is excellent in every way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Season 3 DVD is Great! December 11, 2009
Verified Purchase
I think this DVD is great and is VERY enjoyable. I rate it 5 stars. I did want to mention, however, that some reviews are saying the opening and closing credits are complete and correct for season 3. I've only watched about 6 episodes so far, but 1 episode had the "first season" opening credits, another episode only had 10 seconds of closing credits (butchered by the way) with a "Columbia Pictures Television" logo at the end of it. On some we don't see the "Screen Gems" logo at all. So it isn't perfect like others think, but its a good job overall. The Paul Petersen/Mary Owens interview is great. Whoever produced that did a remarkable job. Paul Petersen sings "My Dad" in it, cool! This is really a great show, and the older I get, the more enjoyable it becomes!

5.0 out of 5 stars Donna Reed Show brings back family values! February 6, 2010
Verified Purchase
I bought the first season DVD for my daughter - age 39. She and my granddaughter started watching the show together and they are hooked. The following Christmas I purchased seasons two and three and they were estatic. Last time I visited all three of us watched several episodes together. The shows are filled with positive values and lessons to be learned. No sex, no violence. Some will say this isn't reality, but I'm glad my granddaughter enjoys watching Donna Reed and learns positive life lessons and what can be wrong with that?
It was a great show when it first aired on TV and even better now when there is little else on television showing a clean-living family.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Pleasing & Fun Third Season!!!!! December 1, 2009
New Update for August 29, 2012: It was just recently announced on the "We Love The Donna Reed Show" page, that 'Season 5' of this great series will be coming out on December 4, 2012!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!! Can't Wait!!!!!!!! I can see a lot of holiday shopping bags being filled with gifts of 'Season 5' DVD Sets!!!! :-)

I had received in the mail the 'Third Season' regarding "The Donna Reed Show" on November 30, 2009. One day before the actual release date!

What a 'Grand Season' of Episodes you will discover in this 'Season 3' DVD Release! I enjoyed all the Guest Stars, including Actor Jay North from the "Dennis the Menace" TV Series, who was very close to making Donna Stone lose her temper, when he did indeed 'Guest Star' during this third season of "The Donna Reed Show" in playing his 'Famous Role' as "Dennis Mitchell" in the episode entitled, "Donna Decorates" which had originally aired on September 29, 1960. And Singer Tony Martin was 'Great' in the episode entitled, "Tony Martin Visits." I also liked the scene where the 'Stone Family' meets Lassie!-in the episode entitled, "The Stones Go To Hollywood." There are so very many Great Episodes on this 'Season Three Release' that it was truly a Fantastic Christmas Present!!!!!!!!!

All 38 Episodes concerning (The Donna Reed Show/Season 3) are Complete and Uncut!!!!! What a Relief!!!!!!!! I hate edited episodes from Vintage Classic Television Shows!!! And it appears to me that these season three episodes for the most part, do have a sharper picture resolution compared to the Previous Seasons 1 & 2. Although, in a few episodes the contrast seems either a little too light or a little too dark, but mostly throughout these 38 episodes the contrast is fine!

The DVD plays noisily in both of my DVD players. Makes me suspect ... bootleg, or counterfeit. Disappointed; expensive but not worth it.
