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."

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.

I know it's been 11 years since the last review of the Jeffersons . I am just adding some facts about the sitcom that was missing from other reviews.

NEED MORE STIMULATING LAUGHTER ? THEN WHERE ARE THE REST OF SEASONS?

Amazon is selling only the first 5 seasons . I need the full collection, 11 seasons,, 253 episodes .
The Jeffersons is an American sitcom that was broadcast on CBS from January 18, 1975, through June 25, 1985, lasting 11 seasons and a total of 253 episodes. The show was produced by the T.A.T. Communications Company from 1975–1982 and by Embassy Television from 1982–1985. The Jeffersons is one of the longest-running sitcoms in the history of American television

Now I will try to find the rest of the seasons if Amazon is not going to sell them.

Louise and George Jefferson find success and move into a high rise apartment building with their adult son Lionel. A host of other characters join in: Neighbor Harry Bentley; Neighbors Tom and Helen Willis along with their daughter Jenny; George's Mother and numerous others form the highly entertaining series. The Jeffersons began as neighbors of to Edith and Archie Bunker (All In The Family), which was not in Harlem as The Jefferson series suggested that they came from so being a Bunker neighbor was apparently part of the Jerfferson's rise to riches. Well worth the money to own!

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!

I did not like this season as I like the first two. Seasons 1 & 2 are much funnier than season three. I didn't like season three because every other episode is funny & bit worth the price I paid so I am returning it momentarily if someone else loves this oh well too bad this just wasn't funny enough for me

"The Jeffersons" still remains my favorite comedy from childhood, and now as an adult, I can experience all the laughter all over again. Really, all the seasons have the basic set-up/execution of its material, but there's absolutely nothing wrong with that. All the characters are perfectly cast--especially Sherman Hemsley and Isabel Sanford. Pure comfort TV for a guy who wishes they made shows like this again.
