Product Description

This half-hour comedy chronicles the hilarious world of Christopher Titus and his totally messed-up poor white trash family. Between his drunken father, his dimwitted brother, and his goody-goody best friend, it's amazing Titus is alive, let alone engaged to a "normal" girl.

The comedic chronicles of Christopher Titus's profoundly dysfunctional family came to an end with Titus's third season (2001-2002), and while it's not known if Titus and his co-producers knew that the bell was tolling for their risky show, the go-for-broke tone of these episodes certainly suggests that they weren't going to leave the airwaves without raising a ruckus. How else to explain such hit-the-brakes storylines as "The Trial," which has Titus's mother (played in this season by Connie Stevens) facing a jury for the murder of her abusive husband (with former spouse Ken Titus, played by the consistently uproarious Stacey Keach, itching to testify against her), or the verboten romance between Tommy (David Shawtraw) and Titus's pregnant sister (Elizabeth Berkely) in "Tommy's Crush," or the two-parter "Insanity Genetic," where Titus's fears that his family's instability might threaten his relationship with Erin (Lost's Cynthia Watros) land him in jail. The episodes compiled in this set are raw, occasionally taboo, and definitely not TV Family Night material (although maybe they should be), but series fans and those looking for comedy with some emotional bite will appreciate that this underappreciated series has finally made it to DVD. The set includes commentary by Titus and co-producers Brian Hargrove and Jack Kenney, and interviews with Keach, Watros, and Zack Ward, who played Titus's brother Dave. --Paul Gaita

Season three of "Titus" is the darkest, but the best, of the three. The show was extraordinary and daring in the exploration of taboo and politically incorrect subjects, and while it was a shame it ended after only three seasons, the entire package when seen as a whole (especially when seen in order) is perfect. While I had always been disappointed about the cancellation, the bonus interview with Zack Ward (who is much smarter than "Dave") had the insight about the perfect whole, and I think he is right: the show ended on a high note, and will always be looked at positively in retrospect, unlike many shows that live on past their prime.

The third season deals with the darkest of all possible subjects, taken largely from Christopher Titus' own life. Most difficult is the subject of his mother's insanity and suicide, and coming to terms with the fears that it may be genetic. The episode "Tommy's Not Gay" is also extremely powerful (especially the black and white segments,) but for me the most difficult episode was the final episode "The Protector" which deals with child abuse. While I was never abused, I have seen the aftermath. It is a tragedy of the highest magnitude, and the manner in which "Titus" dealt with it in the final episode is both a cautionary tale to parents and other "protectors" and an indictment of abusers. I thought the resolution in that episode was absolutely perfect: seeing the principal finally allied for good with the ones he was charged to protect was a stunning moment of moral clarity. Heavy stuff, this, but important to see.

"Titus" is an extremely unconventional show, but a show with extreme merit. I can't recommend this series enough.

While some may say that this season lacked, I disagree strongly. This was a great show, and was pulled off because of going over the edge, which I love. Better that it ended being hilarious and extreme, than getting dull and lifeless.

The third season of Titus brought some major laughs, as well as some daring, thought-provoking episodes. The laughs, as usual, came from an excellent comedy team, though I personally look forward to Stacy Keach's performance as the devilishly drunk womanizer Ken Titus, and his sadistic one-liners, though in one episode, the tables are turned on him by his equally sadistic mother, played by Phyllis Diller. Other daring episodes include "The Protector", where the guys find out that Erin's niece Amy was molested as a child and take steps to help her on the road to recovery.

Other daring episodes include "Tommy's Not Gay", where his father comes out of the closet, and "The Visit", where Titus' mother returns . . . well, I don't want to give everything away, in case you haven't seen it yourself.

I'm eager to add this set to my DVD collection, and plan to spend my down time watching Titus, instead of some trashy reality show. Do you prefer quality, or garbage?

A very unique show but killed off for that very reason. The interview with Stacy Keach will vouch for that(in the bonus materials). I think it's very likely it was taken off the air due to the plot of the 2 part episode. There will never be another show like this one. Taking the darkest moments in life(or family) and turning it into 22 hillarious minutes. Season 3 went to more extremes, and on occassion a bit dramatic, than the previous seasons and also some new characters are introduced(Titus' sister & Grandmother, Tommy's Dad, etc). Both DVD sets are worth buying if you are NOT easily offended. If you think shows like SEINFELD and THAT 70s SHOW are edgy, then you have never seen one single episode of TITUS. Great show. It's too bad Fox took it off the air. The interviews with the cast are the best I've seen for a TV show dvd(but where was the actor who played Tommy? MIA) and there are also about 27 minutes worth of bloopers & outtakes from all 3 seasons to watch that are not mentioned on the back of the DVD. That was nice little surprise... but be prepared for a lot of foul language! The commentaries are also fun to listen to. Highly recommended DVD. If you own the previous DVD set, then Season 3 is a no brainer. You may start laughing hillariously now.... "Err!"

After this season, FOX decided to cancel one of the funniest series ever to come along. This season of Titus marks the shows maturity into a truly genius work of art. The previous two seasons are hillariously funny mixing in numerous cartoon style cut-to's a la Family Guy and The Simpsons. Stacey Keach provides many of the laugh-out-loud moments of the show in these cut aways.

The third season pushes the envelope more than the first two seasons did combined. This season of the show hits you with many hilariously funny jokes and then provides many serious and provocative moments regarding homosexuality, suicide, molestation, etc. This season is darker, but the genius comes out of that. The formula for the third season of Titus is raw, hilarious, touching, and distressing all at the same time. The show about Titus' mom is a perfect example. I won't ruin it for those who haven't seen it, but those of you who have seen it know what I mean.

It's really hard to explain to those who haven't seen the show. There truly has never been a show before or since that can think of that is like Titus. I don't want to make it sound like the show is dreary because it isn't. It's funny, but also insightful. The season contains 21 episodes:

01 Racing In The Streets: Titus, still recovering from his drag racing accident, decides to street race for money. Erin tries to stop him

02 Amy's Birthday: Erin throws her neice Amy a surprise party. After seeing how Amy's living, Erin tries to fix the problem.

03 Tommy's Not Gay: Tommy reveals shocking news: His father is gay. Titus tries to mend the father-son relationship and also get back at two guys who assualted Tommy's father.
