Editorial Reviews

An explosion of stripes, pastels, and pure bubblegum pop music, The Partridge Family were more popular than The Brady Bunch when they were both on the air. It's easy to see why; though perhaps best known for launching David Cassidy as a pop idol, The Partridge Family merged infectious melodies with fresh writing and charming, lighthearted performances. In The Complete Third Season, the show is at its peak. The touring of a family band had largely been laid aside; the focus is on domestic life, though every episode features at least one musical number. Dating, school, and family squabbles form the bulk of the plots, but the topical issues of the 1970s crop up again and again: Some of the best episodes grapple with the battle of the sexes, permissive parenting, group therapy, and sex education (which receives a firm endorsement from this family show). Of course, there's also silliness--the family has to dress as chickens when they get hired for a commercial, an escaped convict holds them hostage in their own home--but the stories are consistently well-crafted. Furthermore, the show stands out for its willingness to puncture sentimentality. When Keith Partridge (Cassidy) runs for student body president and nobly asks the students to vote for his more qualified opponent, his younger brother and campaign manager Danny (Danny Bonaduce) disgustedly mutters, "I've molded a loser!"

The show's bedrock appeal lies in Shirley Jones' wholesome foxiness, Cassidy's genuine pop charisma (as well as his willingness to be the butt of a joke), and Bonaduce's caustic preadolescent deadpan. But Susan Dey as oldest sister Laurie became a key player this season, demonstrating the charm and wit that would lead her to further stardom on L.A. Law (she also gets the most spectacular outfits--check out the red plaid jumpsuit she wears in the escaped convict episode!). Guest stars include such classic 1970s support players as Bert Convy, Mary Ann Mobley, and Nancy Walker; future sitcom stars like Gordon Jump (WKRP in Cincinnati) and Charlotte Rae (Diff'rent Strokes, The Facts of Life); and even future movie stars like Jodie Foster, who punches Danny in the eye when he tries to kiss her. The Partridge Family was a winning show, clever, cheerful, and actually funny. Regrettably, there are no audio commentaries or interviews with the cast. --Bret Fetzer

Product Description

Laurie's in love. Danny's in trouble. Shirley's in debt. And Keith is flunking sex education! These are just a few of the hijinks that take place in the celebrated third season of TV's beloved The Partridge Family! Join Academy Award-winner Shirley Jones (Actress in Supporting Role 1960 for Elmer Gantry) and America's original idol, David Cassidy, with Susan Dey, Danny Bonaduce, Dave Madden, and the rest of the talented cast as pop's first family meets a princess, a convict, a biker, and a millionaire while taking on rogue computers, racehorses, crooks, crushes, and even a flash flood! With an all-star guest cast taht includes Ray Bolger, Arte Johnson, Anthony Geary, John Astin, and a very young Jodie Foster, The Partridge Family: The Complete Third Season is your backstage pass to life, love, and laughs with the tuneful, terrific Partridge Family!

5.0 out of 5 stars THE PARTRIDGE FAMILY - SEASON 3 October 15, 2008
Format:DVD
I'm a Partridge Family fan from when it first aired. I had every album, knew every word to every song, watched every night.. had the neighbors in our garage with the record player and tennis racket for guitars, boxes and cans and chopsticks for my drums, the banana seat on my bike as a keyboard, and a real tamborine as we all played with the Partridges AS the Partridge Family, singing to imaginary crowds or garage rehersals.. for hours on end.

I have to disagree. The FIRST season was the BEST! (Jeremy Gelbwaks was a better Chris Partridge. Had more and better lines). However... owning Season 3 and hopefully soon Season 4 to complete my Partridge Family Collection would be the a dream come true.

No, it did not go to a 5th season, and I totally agree... I hope it doesn't take as long to release the final.. season 4.. Would be nice if they include some interviews with the cast.. (including Jeremy). Would be nice to see HOW they recorded the music scenes for the show... (Pads over the drums and keyboards). Maybe even include the "This Is Your Life" on Shirley Jones, as well as include the HORRIBLE NEW PARTRIDGE FAMILY pilot they did in 2005. (It was better than The Partridge Family AD cartoon).

Would also be nice if they released another CD with more unreleased songs on it too as a set.

5.0 out of 5 stars YES!!! THE LONG WAIT IS FINALLY OVER!!! August 19, 2008
Format:DVD
The Partridge Family's third season was definitely among this series' best: the characters had gelled; the plotlines were solid (and more hilarious than ever!); and the music, like its prime audience, was maturing. I LOVE this season, and this show (can you tell? LOL), and CAN HARDLY WAIT TILL ITS RELEASE THIS FALL!!! I know this is a bit belated on my part, but THANKS SONY!! And I hope all we PF fans can all look forward to the series FINAL Season in the not-too-distant future as well! Thanks again to everyone responsible for making this happen!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't Wait for Four January 15, 2009
Format:DVD
This show ended way too soon. It was a shame that David couldn't do more. The show all day and the recording studio all night were too much for the 23 year old. I simply loved it though. I was a little girl then and David Cassidy was the HOTTEST Guy around back in a time when innocence was still innocence. The casting was dead on. Shirley was great as the Mother. Being David's Stepmother only helped. The comedy as times was hokey, but a funny hokey. The music was actually good. Danny Bonaduce was the funniest young actor I'd ever seen at my young age and even still that way today. Susan Dey was gorgeous, witty and could truly act even though she had only modeled until two years ago when this first aired. Dave Madden and Danny were made to act together. They could have play Vaudeville when it was around. That's exactly how their humorous sparing came across. They were an act within an act. The kids were good for very young children. Shirley was the star but David Cassidy was the cherry on top. He came from an acting family and picked up his well earned whit from his father Jack. He was as cute as can be, a very talented comedian and a voice like silk. He could play guitar although they wouldn't let him except in the pilot. I like most young girl pinned up his pictures, read about him in Teen Magazine and dreamed about him at night. All that aside he was and still is a very talented man. His comedic timing outdid his Dad's. He and Susan had great chemistry as brother and sister and you knew that if they hadn't been cast that way they would have made a wonderful television couple. The whole group fit together like a true family. I'm really looking forward to reliving my early years when Season four comes out, what a pit there was no five etc... Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars great show from my childhood. November 4, 2008
Format:DVD
When i was 10 yrs old in 1970 i remember watching the partridge family on tv. It was my favorite show very entertaining,funny and the music was great.I was delighted to hear that it came out on dvd thats the reason why i ordered it. season three was especially special to me maybe because of the memories i had as a child alot of the situations on the show happened to me in real life.I cant wait until the fourth season comes out on dvd the show only ran for 4 seasons i only wish they could have made more if you love the partridge family as much as i do i hope youll buy any or all of the seasons that amazon.com has to offer.

5.0 out of 5 stars What took so long? October 16, 2008
Format:DVD
1 of if not my favorite television shows.
I still have my albums. And, I am NOT ashamed to say so.

Ok, people, WHY DID IT TAKE 3 YEARS BETWEEN 2005 WHEN SEASON 1 & 2 WERE RELEASED ON DVD TO RELEASE SEASON 3?

It was a fun show. Cast always did a great job in my opinion. I was NEVER a Brady Bunch person. A Partridge fan all the way!!

When out release day to purchase this.

So, after the 3 year wait to get this season out on DVD guess what?

NO EXTRAS!!

How about talking to the cast? How about a "Making Of" special? How about a piece on the success of the show & the music? Nope-nothing.

With only the 4th season yet to be released to DVD-how many years will that take?

Make the release of the 4th season special for fans & PUT EXTRAS in the package!!!

Rated 5 stars for the show NO THE DVD PACKAGE WITH NO EXTRAS!!
