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.

Seasons 1-4 are great. Forget the fifth and final season-not worth it (unless it's a throw in) Season 1 black and white. These certainly are Screen GemsPublished 1 month ago by D. Ruhl
Somehow old shows as we age... bring back a better time. Great actress, Shirley Booth, but many of the shows seem corny now. Those sensor people nothing got by them.Published 8 months ago by Raven
A sweet sit-com that focuses on family dynamics and goofy misunderstandings. I bought this as a gift for my mother, who loves the show. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Heather the Harpist
