Product Description

Paul Reiser and Academy Award(r)-winning actress Helen Hunt (1997, Actress in a Leading Role, As Good As It Gets) are back for another season of laughs and charm. Take a road trip with the Buchmans as they try to find their favorite restaurant and can't remember the name. Relive the reasons why Paul hates his birthday, watch Murray become a star, and see what happens when one of Jamie's old boyfriends pays a visit. This season features amazing guest stars such as Carl Reiner, Cyndi Lauper, Lisa Kudrow, Wendie Malick and Eric Stoltz. Bring home all the romance and insanity from the Emmy(r) award-winning series with this three-disc DVD set. Fall in love all over again.

Amazon.com

Four years after Mad About You's complete second season was released on DVD (and two years after a highlights collection seemed to signal the end of season-by-season releases), the complete third season of everyone's favorite neurotic couple is finally on DVD. If Paul (Paul Reiser) and Jamie (Helen Hunt) Buchman don't drive each other nuts, they'll do it to their British neighbors, or the whole building, such as when an attempt to steal cable TV goes awry ("Pandora's Box"). Not to mention their whole crazy cast of characters, including Jamie's useless sister Lisa (Anne Ramsay), Paul's shifty cousin Ira (John Pankow), Paul's parents (Cynthia Harris and Louis Zorich), Jamie's parents (Theresa Fuller and John Carlin, replaced in later years by the stunt casting of Carol Burnett and Carol O'Connor), the building super (Jerry Adler), Jamie's best friend Fran (Leila Kenzie), and supremely clueless waitress Ursula (Lisa Kudrow). Some of the episodes had appeared on the highlights collection, such as the zany Thanksgiving dinner ("Giblets for Murray"), Paul's reality TV show in which he turns the camera on Jamie and himself ("Our Fifteen Minutes"), and Carl Reiner's appearance as a TV legend ("The Alan Brady Show"). But others are finally seeing the DVD daylight, including "The Ride Home," in which Paul and Jamie take a cab ride and recount, from different perspectives, how Fran's birthday party turned into a disaster involving guest stars Wendie Malick and Eric Stoltz. In the two-part "Mad About You," they flash back to the preparation for their wedding, and Paul flashes back to birthdays from hell in "Cake Fear." Cyndi Lauper returns as Ira's ex-wife (a guest appearance for which she won an Emmy, as did Reiner) in "Money Changes Everything" and Stoltz turns Jamie into a comic-book character ("My Boyfriend's Back"). Then in the two-part season finale, they're transported It's a Wonderful Life-style into a world in which they'd never met ("Up in Smoke").

Does it matter that the set has no bonus features? Maybe not so much. The bells and whistles of the Mad About You Collection were nice, but they don't compare to having a complete season's worth of episodes on DVD. We want Paul and Jamie, with their hilarious and touching quirks and chemistry, just as we watched them on TV. That's all we're saying. --David Horiuchi

MAY's fan base is devoted and vocal. The highest-rated review I've written on Amazon (110+ positives as of today) was a double-barreled blast at the "Best Of" hodgepodge released a few years back. With so much popularity, it's been a mystery why the third season took four years - FOUR YEARS - to be released. Well, it's not really a mystery: Sales have been low. But it finally has been and we're going to be gracious to Sony. Or at least try.

I don't even care anymore about special features. They cost hundreds of thousands to produce and I don't want to give any excuses for further delays. The resolution on this set is back to season one's low standards in order to cram 24 eps onto three discs. Fine. It's better than no episodes at all.

One plus: I'm happy this set has Play All. It should be illegal to not have that function on a DVD set.

To the fans: Sony ponied up for this. Now you have to buy it or we get no more!

I'll just echo what everyone else has already said. Seeing the 'Best-of' Collection come out seemed to pretty much spell the end of the Season boxed sets, without giving the show a chance to get to its best seasons.

Season Three is absolutely Mad About You at its very very best!!

The show's very best episodes are here in Season 3:

Our Fifteen Minutes, Two Tickets to Paradise, Cake Fear and the show's absolute best moment, the hour-long season finale (an 'Its A Wonderful Life-ish') 'Up In Smoke', where Jamie and Paul see what life would have been like if they'd never met.

The stars are at their very best, and the supporting cast is given its best work in the show's run. The quality of Season 3 is so high, that the 'good' work in the remaining seasons pales by comparison.

So, it's good?

That's what I'm saying.

I had completely given up hope for a season three set. Especially when the "best of" collection was released, which was great... but this wonderful series deserves a season-by-season treatment. The only complaint I have is the lack of any "extras" on any of the season sets, but that's a minor gripe. If you want commentary and inside scoop, the four disc "Mad About You Collection" has plenty. I've just pre-ordered season three and if you're a fan of the show and want to see a season four, I suggest you do the same. The main reason for the huge gap between releases was due to poor sales of seasons one and two.

Although the show can be quirky and there are a few episodes (overall) that I don't like, I find myself drawn to this sitcom as much as I am to Seinfeld or Everybody Loves Raymond. The assortment of talented character actors along with Paul & Jamie just make this sitcom hilarious. I have watched many a re-run over the years and am glad they finally released the 3rd season and can only hope they continue on.

If you've never watched the show, find some re-runs on TV before committing to the DVDs or rent some. I find the show appealing because it is about two obsessive compsulsive people and their adventures in life - from dealing with their neighbors to their crazy friends and family. The sitcom did suffer some low points along the way, as most long-running shows do. Still, I think you'll like it if you give it a try.

Like the other reviewers, I was worried when they produced a "best-of" set, that they were never going to go back to putting out entire season collections of "Mad About You." What a great show this was in its best seasons. Yes, it got disappointing in the final couple of years with its dependence on big name guest stars and Paul Reiser's insistence on leading Paul and Jamie's relationship towards infidelity and big, serious plot lines (what the hell was he thinking?). But during its prime, this was about as good a sitcom as you'll ever find.

An avid Netflixer here, I have gone out and bought each and every MAD product released. I love this show, and have really loved seeing these years works again. I am also looking forward to seeing the later years which I largely missed for "life" reasons.

As I recall, in its hayday MAD was often overshadowed by the funny but very overrated Seinfeld show. The more thoughtful and touching MAD work took an undeserved back seat in media frenzy and water cooler chatter. Perhaps because Seinfelds outrageousness was easier to discuss, and MAD touched parts of our hearts that was harder to discuss casually.

Whatever, it is great to see it available. We want more!

Well, I cannot add anything to the fact that this is a stellar series with a great story arc and cast.

Now all we need is seasons 4 through 7 to be released, and the fact that they've come up off of season 3 is indicative that this will eventually happen.

Packaging was great. Product received without any issues. Don't think I should rate the show. I enjoyed this series and have watched it 3 or 4 times. But it is a TV Series. Either like it or not. But it is a nice comedy.
