Editorial Reviews

Get ready to "move on up" with the nonstop comedic fun of the third season of THE JEFFERSONS, one of the most critically-acclaimed and groundbreaking sitcoms in TV history. With an irresistible combination of biting social satire and pure hilarity, America's funniest cast of characters are all on hand to deliver even more laughs: Geroge Jefferson (Sherman Hemsley) takes up flying, wife Weezy (Isabel Sanford) struggles to keep her cool around Mother Jefferson (Zara Culley), maid Florence (Marla Gibbs) moved on in and starts trouble, son Lionel (Mike Evans) married the daughter of the next-door-neighbors, interracial couple Helen and Tom Willis (Roxie Roker and Franklin Cover), and neighbor Harry Bentley (Paul Benedict) lands himself in jail after punching out a police officer not to mention all the other wacky characters who shake things up in the "dee-luxe apartment in the sky." Created by legendary television producer Norman Lear, THE JEFFERSONS brilliantly used humor to smash stereotypes and attract huge audiences, making it one of the most popular and longest-running (1975-1985) TV comedy series ever. Remastered and made available on DVD for the very first time, this collector's three-disc set features all 24 episodes from Season Three. Sit back and let THE JEFFERSONS lift you, because now you "finally got a piece of the pie."

5.0 out of 5 stars Isabel and Sherman move on up to higher Nielsen ratings! February 14, 2005
No changes within the cast yet. One highlight from this season was when Lionel Jefferson(Damon Evans) and Jenny Willis(Belinda Tolbert) became husband and wife. This episode first aired in December 1976. DE joined the Jeffersons cast in the summer of 1975 after Mike Evans,who played Lionel originally,left to produce another CBS sitcom,Good Times,which he had co-created. ME would return for the seventh season in 1980. Olivia Jefferson,George's mother still frequently visited George(Sherman Hemsley) and Louise(Isabel Sanford). Marla Gibbs is now officially a Jeffersons cast member as Florence Johnston,the Jeffersons' wise-cracking no-nonsense maid. She even guest-starred in the series premiere episode. We still hear "honky" and "zebra" coming out of George's mouth. The "honkies" are the Jeffersons' neighbor Tom Willis(Franklin Cover),their next door neighbor Harry Bentley(Paul Benedict),doorman Ralph Hart(Ned Wertimer in a recurring role) and bank President H.W. Whittendale who is also the Jeffersons',the Willises and Harry's landlord. The "zebra" is Jenny,who's half-caucasian on her father Tom's side and half-negro on her mother Helen's(Tom's wife played by the late Roxie Roker) side. Sadly,Sanford passed away on July 9,2004 at age 86 of complications from pneumonia. She was hospitalized five days earlier. Several months earlier,she received a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame. So I dedicate this item to the memory of Sanford.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oldies are better!! September 20, 2006
I am very much enjoying the Season 3 of the Jeffersons. The assorted characters are so well chosen. I can't think of any current show that can compare with the Jeffersons. However, one drawback to this season is that Zara Cully barely makes an appearance. She's such a great character

but I realize her illness may have been the reason.

I especially enjoyed the episode where Bentley ends up in jail and is singing to himself in his jail cell.

Now I have become addicted and will have to see Season 4, of course!

5.0 out of 5 stars I DON'T WANT TO WAIT IN VAIN FOR SEASON FOUR!!!! May 7, 2005
I can't believe how long Columbia took to release season three, considering the great response seasons one and two recieved. Needless to say I could hardly wait to add season three to my collection. It had some of the best episodes, like when Tom and Helen make an attempt to improve Louise and George's marriage. Sherman Hemsley's comedic timing was priceless! I just loved the way he would express his continued dislike toward the Willises, despite Lionel and Jenny being married. I'm sure alot of people would love to be able to openly insult their in-laws and get away with it!!!

Thank goodness the episodes are crisp and have excellent sound quality. My only complaint is there are no extras. It would have been nice to see an on camera tribute to Isabel Sanford from surviving cast members and Norman Lear. Oh well, I guess I should be greatful to finally get the dvd.

COLUMBIA TRISTAR PLEASE DONT TAKE TOO LONG RELEASING SEASON FOUR!!!! I'd like to see the episode when Gary Coleman guest stars as George's nefew from hell.

5.0 out of 5 stars Move on Up with the Jeffersons! May 6, 2007
The Jeffersons is one of those shows that just gets better with time. It's well-written, acted, and directed. The characters like George and Louise Jefferons are an African American couple who have lived in Harlem, Queens, and now on the upper East Side in New York City. Their friends and neighbors, Tom and Helen Willis, are an interracial couple whose daughter, Jenny, married Lionel Jefferon in an unforgettable Christmas episode at least in my opinion. The show's topics ranged all over the place in this season. it was probably the last season for Zara Cully who played Mother Jefferson. I loved Mother Jefferson and believed that her absence was plagued by health reasons. Regardless, this show kept going and just got better instead of getting worse. Characters like Ralph the Doorman and Mr. Bentley, the British next-door neighbor often added a touch of fun.
