As sitcoms age, it is common to notice weaknesses in the writing but that isn't the story with Season Three of "Hazel." There are a few clunkers here, but most of the stories are creative and we see more and more of Hazel Burke interacting with neighbors and the community at large. Shirley Booth continues to be amazing, and it really seems the award-winning actress was just hitting her stride. Seldom can an actress bring such a wide range of emotions to a viewer, but when her lips tremble and she breaks into tears, I found myself also feeling sad for her. But there are way more laughs here than tears; her relationship with Mr. B. is explored more, especially on the first disk, in a three-episode arc when Whitney Blake was noticeably absent. If anyone knows the background story behind her absence during those first few episodes of this third season, I'd be curious to know the details.
There are also a few guest-starring roles of note, most notcieably a very, very young Diane Ladd as an annoying family cousin that will have viewers saying to themselves that she looks just like her daughter, Laura Dern.
I can't laud Shout Factory! enough for releasing the second and third seasons of this sitcom...and hope they will release the remaining two seasons. Those of us that are fans of classic television will be forever grateful. If you enjoyed the first two seasons of "Hazel", you won't be disappointed with Season Three.
Absolutely agree with all the kudos to Shout! Factory... they have simply been superb in bringing so many releases to DVD, in as fine a quality as is possible. Shout! Factory seems to set the standard that others hope to follow (my opinion of course, but I'm truly impressed). It's simply great to be able to re-enjoy Hazel all over again (and so many others that Shout! Factory has released). I haven't been disappointed by any of their releases.
Shout! Factory endeavors to provide the best quality they can on their releases.. and it shows.. And that's something we just don't see enough of these days.. A hearty thank you to Shout! for responding to us tv fanatics as often as they have... Hopefully, viewers will show their support and respond by purchasing (and truly enjoying) these shows, which can only benefit us all !!
